Remeber seeing hima  few seasons ago and thought he looked decent but then went off the boil. But, he's been playing at right-back which isn't his position and also may just have gone stale at Hull. We definitely do need a wide right player with a bit of pace and he seems to have that. Its easy to forget Green has only played a handful of games so far so we shouldn't be expecting him to be the player to get Kodj/Hogan/whoever firing so we need to rely on experience. At the moment we have Adomah and Bacuna for that position. One more won't hurt.

Remember those heady days under MON when the absence of a right back sent us all a bit crazy? Ask and ye shall receive.

If MON had this squad he'd definitely play Chester and baker as fullbacks. Maybe de Laet as left back

I think he will be marginally better than Adomah.

Adomah setting up goals for Kodjia was basically one of the few functional things we had going forward last season, and we're supposed to be cutting that particular supply line because, what, he's done well for Bruce in the past?

Well, uh, here's to hoping.

Top championship assists last season:

1. Hourihane (mostly for Barnsley)
2. Adomah (I'm guessing the vast bulk were for Kodjia)

I'd file adomah along with Jedinak. Not brilliant and not premier league class. But would be a big risk to change things give how little else has functioned smoothly

Without outgoings, this seems a little strange.
And, for all the talk of 3-5-2 who would be the third CB? - If Chester and Terry are first pick for right and left, who would be the central covering CB? I'm rather hoping that Bruce does not see Richards or Hutton in that role but that is what is beginning to emerge. Chester would make a good central CB, but then Terry presumably would shift to the right: is that something he would want to do?
It's all very vague and somewhat disconcerting.

I don't know much about Elmohamady, but whenever I hear his name I recollect a commentary that was on the radio when the commentator/summariser described him as one of the worst footballers they had ever seen.

I think it was Hull v the stripy's. It may have been Ron Toss so it probably doesn't count as an opinion anyway.

I remember him featuring regularly on MOTD when he was whipping pin point crosses in from the right wing for Sunderland...sounds like he's had a fall from grace at Hull though. We haven't had anyone that can cross a ball from the right for years (special thanks to Hutton), so if the rumoured release fee is £1m then it's not exactly a big gamble for someone who could provide some decent service into the box for a change.

Not sure quite why most people are negative about this. He's versatile and presumably was one of the better players in his position last time he played at this level. I realise right back/right wing back isn't exactly a problem position at the moment, but if we sign him for £1m and sell Hutton for similar I think that counts as an upgrade. Bree can then either be loaned out or eased into the first team over the next season or so. Bit harsh on De Laet, but I suppose Bruce thinks Elmohamady is a better bet.

Considering some of the signings we've made over recent years, this one is pretty low risk.

I think there's a high risk of him being one of the players we all wish we could ship out.

The Hull fans seem genuinely delighted that he is leaving, which hardly bodes well.

Why are we buying this sort of shite?

But if you look at their site (link a page or two back) they all agree that he hasn't been playing in his proper position, and that when he was playing wide right and not as a defender he was okay. All agree that he's a bit of a diver though.

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.
We had an Egyptian goalkeeper.  Nigel Sphinx.

Randy lost a  pharaoh amount of money too.

I hope he's not a Luxor-y player, we have enough of those.
Well I couldn't cairo less.

Aswan fan to another, stop this now.
