Adeloye scores for Partick having just come on as sub.  First touch against his old club.
Nice finish, too.

I thought he left in June

Mid September would be an odd time for a contract to run out.

Unless he was OOC in June & has been allowed to stay and train with Spurs whilst he found himself a new club - which maybe he has now?

Who knows & also who knows who at the club had interest him originally and whether they still work here (seems unlikely)

Perhaps the problem was not our fax machine, but his? 😉

Seeing as we have 2 ball playing CBs plus Brewitt who isnít that bad on the ball either, surely it makes sense to recruit someone similar. I never really bought into the Ďhead it, boot ití CB many seem to clamour for.
Flynn said pre game on Saturday he is looking for another CB who can pass a bit but who is strong in the air.

When I say I want a commanding CB that doesn't mean he has to be a head it boot it as you suggets, it just means he has to be able to head a ball away, be a threat at corners attacking, and be able to pass a ball 10 yards to a team mate, ala Shaun Taylor. It doesnt mean he has to be a hoof merchant.

Agreed. Having said that FBT was very dominant in the air on Saturday but an additional option is still needed.

Although he looked very ungainly and all arms & legs at times it's easy to forget that Shaun Taylor could play a bit as well.

Why don't you knock it off with them negative waves? Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here? Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?

Apparently when Hoddle signed him in July 91 Shaun said no coach in his 27 years had actually shown him how to pass a ball and how to control a ball.

Up there with THE best centre backs (certainly for bravery and heading ability) in the entire history of Swindon Town FC I would think and his partnership with Calderwood was probably the best CB pairing that I have seen in my 50 years following the Town.

The only others that got close were Billy Tucker (he was a big lump head and hoof but did it well) and Jon Gittens for his absolute effort and defending ability.

Flint and McCormack was a cracking partnership as they had such different skill sets.

I'm old enough to have seen Burrows and Harland in their prime. That was a great partnership but Taylor and Calderwood not far off. Still think we may have stayed up if Calderwood had stayed
