All I’m saying is that the last two signings have been a bit “fair-skinned” even by Scottish standards!
But seriously, folks, I’m actually excited about this signing. I purposely left the rumor about Danish striker Thomas Mikklesen joining the club (on a two year deal, no less!) out of yesterday’s post because I thought it was a bit far-fetched. He’s the right age (27), he has good size (6’2″), he played for Dundee United on loan from OB (Danish Superliga) last season (7 goals in 17 appearances) so he knows how the game is played in Scotland, most importantly, he’s actually a striker! Between his time in his native Denmark, a short stint in Sweden, and last season in the Championship he has been a consistent goal-every-three-matches player and that should translate to 12-15 goals if he plays a full season. His size will also be a nice compliment to Craig Curran and Alex Schalk.
Here are a few clips of him playing (including a well-taken brace from last season against Queen of the South). He seems to have a decent touch, holds the ball up well, and isn’t afraid to stick his head in to get a goal.
Now, my question to County supporters, is he the first Dane to play for County?
