Is that a Szamo's agent smiley?

It's very good.

He's gone to chase the money - and fair play to him, he came with no pretences, and he was integral to our top 6 finish. Seemed like a real character, and done Hibs a power of good.

Top keeper when on the field. Best we've had since Andersson. Mad to think we had him and Hyldegaard at the same time, why couldn't have been different seasons :(

Compared to Jimbo he was pish, much like every keeper we have had since Jimbo

Well there are very different levels of pish if that's the case. Because there is no way I'd compare Szamo to total liabilities like Maka, Brown, McNeil, the Hungarian or the Pole.

Most keepers compare badly to Jim Leighton, or Budgie or Goram or Rough come to that. And those are the guys any keeper who signs for us will be compared to, unfortunately.

IMO Szamo was no better a shotstopper tham Maka is.

He had the confidence that comes with being an experienced player in his late 20's, is all.

He was also apparently able to get Jones to work with him - a lot of the misunderstandings that occurred between Jones and Maka were as much the fault of Jones as of Maka. Quite a bit of the stuff that Maka got pelters for was actually down to Jones not pushing out and taking the back line with him, IMO.

Szamo was obviously putting himself in the shop-window while he was here.

Maybe he thought we might have been prepared to subsidise his next period of orthopaedic surgery/physio/rehab. I'm very glad we weren't so stupid as to offer him acceptable terms - we'd have had him on the treatment table until March next year (Paying him all the while) and then he'd have played a few games towards the end of the season, and signed for a 'bigger' club in July.

IMO the situation we're in now - Makalambay and Stack as our senior first-team keepers, and young Flynn (who seems a different sort of character to Grof, thank goodness) as heir-apparent, should be adequate to see us through the next couple of seasons.

And if we ARE going to start slagging off keepers, it helps if we know their names. "The Hungarian", gents, was DAVID GROF. He's not been away so long as to be forgotten, surely.
