Oh aye. Mr Jim will go on what he sees with his eye and that is good enough for me. Worked well for him so far.

Feel like things like Wyscout are probably decent tools if you supplement them with actually going to watch players in person, as opposed to doing what we spent the past five years doing and apparently giving out lucrative contracts based solely on highlights videos Warnock Feel like Levein built up and fell in love with some weird self-image as a visionary, using the technology everyone else would catch up with in a few years' time. Or maybe there's some other explanation for all the dreadful signings. Monty Oh You

Who would’ve thought watching video of a player and also watching them in the flesh would produce better scouting than just watching clips of players.

I hope no one else finds out about our recent breakthrough in football recruitment.

All I was saying was that the issue isn't necessarily with the technologies themselves so much as us apparently having relied exclusively on them when signing players on decent money and long-term contracts. You're right, what I said was completely stating the obvious, and that's why it's bizarre that we weren't doing it.

My post was agreeing with you/echoing your sentiments mate. I didn’t even quote you Warnock

Kevin Kyle mentioned on Open Goal that he'd spoken to Mr Jim to congratulate him and apparently there some total shit shows behind the scenes at Hearts which he has to sort out Laugh

Thank fuck it's in his hands now.
