It had been ‘reported’, via the ‘word on the street’ approach, that an ‘informal enquiry’ had been made about free agent Garry O’Connor.

The same O’Connor, who left Barnsley last month, has – according to The Mail – been ‘arrested on suspicion of possessing cocaine’ with him ‘allegedly caught with the Class A drug in Edinburgh during the early hours of Saturday morning’.

After his detainment by police he was ‘released without charge pending further examination’…

Of course everyone is innocent until proven guilty but, for me, this is another reason why it would be best to steer clear of the 28-year-old really.

Before I carry on I know beggars cannot be choosers and chances are we are going to have to pretty much ‘take what we can get’ again this summer, and I am not being negative just realistic with it looking increasingly like this will happen again, but a striker who is seeing a career decline is one to avoid for a start, right?

Add to that the fact he was released by Barnsley, with all due respect to them, means he is hardly what I would have thought we needed before this class A drug news, following it I would think we should be even less interested…
