General Comments:

Jamie Ness is nothing special. Yes I think if you can keep him injury free he can play great, but no team is going to keep him fit. In my opinion Ness should have stayed at Rangers, obviously nobody want's to play in Scotland's lowest division but he's not going to stay match fit. Simple as that. You may think this profile is a waste of time but many Stoke fans will want to know what he's like. Let's say you keep him fit, He can be a very good player, breaking up attacks and then having the vision to pick out a pass, and he has a very very good strike on him as we all saw against Celtic in the Scottish Cup. Will he make it in the Premier League? No, he probably won't even get a game for Stoke. I don't even know what else to say about him. The problem with Ness is he has all the talent, but will spend his years on the medical table, unfortunately for him and the fans.

Yes this has been a very short profile and probably a waste of time if you wanted to hear how great he is, but I'm trying to be as honest as I can to the readers of this great site.

Summary of Ness:

Strengths - Shooting, tackling and vision
