What They Say...About Graham Carey
4th July 2015
WE had a look to see what others had said in the past about new signing Graham Carey. The consensus? Decent left peg...
Former St Mirren Manager Gus MacPherson: "When he picks up the ball there's excitement as the crowd sense something may happen. He's always more than capable with his excellent delivery from set-pieces."
Former Scotland manager Craig Brown stated that Carey “looks a real talent” and also said “he is the kind of player fans like to watch.”
Ex-Huddersfield Manager Lee Clark: "Graham will bring brilliant versatility to the squad – he can play anywhere up the left side of the pitch. He has a terrific left foot and he looks as elegant as you would expect from a quality left-footed player."
In July 2011, Carey re-signed for St. Mirren, having had a successful loan spell in the 2009–10 season. Manager Danny Lennon said: "It's great to get Graham in. I believe in wider areas, we let ourselves down last season and he has a left foot to die for. That type of quality is very scarce. He's an intelligent footballer and will be a major addition to the squad. He is very good in dead-ball situations."
Former Pilgrim – and team-mate of Graham’s – Gary Teale, when managing against Carey: “Graham has an exceptional left foot by any standards and that is why we must make sure that we give County nothing within striking distance for him. Really you will go a long way to come across a better left foot than Graham's and in a tight game if you are giving someone like that an opportunity then that can be the difference.”
