I mean don't get me wrong, he's an absolute clogger and no doubt he'll be getting pelters soon for being shite on the ball, but think he's a good signing. We need to be hard to play against.

Darren indeed should take note of how you should play if you have zero ability but are quite big.

Not that he was ever the quickest but Hopefully he's retained a bit of pace - he's got a lot of players to kick on behalf of the rest of our midfield.

Wow this is very surprising. They have managed to keep this completely quiet, no sign of this in any rumour column or twitter gossip.

I think it is a perfect signing given our circumstances and being out of the window. A physical presence in central midfield, and an experienced one at that, who presumably is up to speed fitness wise. I was beginning to fear Parky wasn't seeing the same issues as we were, with people like Baptista, O'Brien, Obi being our rumoured out of window potential signings. Even if he has an influence till January it will have been a good move.

The sort of player we need at the moment, but as Dibs has mentioned I hope he's still got a good engine as he's either got to get his colleagues organised or spend his time mopping up after them. I suspect the latter!

Desperately hoping he doesn't get on the wrong side of the ref Maffia. Playing with ten men we definitely don't need. Love the idea of a bit of steel and cojones in our defence that might make Wheats and Beevers re-discover their confidence and scoring sides.

He's a midfielder... I know it's fun to play players out of position, but let's get him shit in midfield first

Quite so, B.B, but in our case defence starts just outside their box. :wink:
