There seems to be a lot in the press regarding Hooper and his apparent wish to come back to his boyhood club.

After watching the Celtic v Juve game the other night, I’m not sure he is of enough quality to play for us once we get to where AVB wants to be. He was certainly manhandled at every corner/attacking freekick Celtic had and didn’t seem to know what to do about it. He was rarely involved in team play and didn’t really get on the end of any forward play as far as I could tell from the TV screen.

Just wondering what other THFC fans on here thought about his performance. Would they want him playing for us next season? We’ll see Lisandro L√≥pez tonight, who we apparently offered 6mill euros for in January, and could compare them with each other. I know they’ll both be on a one-off appearance but should give us some idea of which would be preferable for the way AVB wants our team to play.
