It looks like he's arriving so he gets his own thread.

Position wise, unless he plays him right wing, it's an odd one but Bruce knows him well and from that point of view, i'm fine with it.

Unless he is coming primarily as a wide midfield player or wing-back, it seems a strange purchase when funds are rumoured to be so tight.  Obviously wish him the best though and will he be the first Egyptian to play for us?

I make that six right backs. Meanwhile we only have one player that ever scores, and he's injured.

Bruce is an imbecile.

He's a right sided wing back. He's cheap. He'll be gone next summer. We're going 3 at the back?

I guess Bruce has always rated him. I don't, but there are worse Hull players I guess. Seems pretty uninspiring, one of those forgettable players who will come up in a trivia quiz one day.

The latest in a long line of pulse-quickening Bruce signings.  Look forward to Bruce going on about him having "that little bit of quality we've been missing."

Unless he's going 3 at the back...which I'm not sure suits Terry anyway, then it's a bit baffling. Unless he's playing in Adomah's role? Who knows? Not even sure Bruce does to be honest...

I guess the logic is

- trusts him
- knows how to play wing back (Hutton can't)
- cheap
- also cover for adomah

I don't think it means we'll play 352 all the time but I imagine it means we will at least some of the time

8 across the back is still the most likely.
