Sorry if this has been mentioned before - is he the guy who did that stupid dance when they got promoted a few seasons back?

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.

My in-laws are all sunderland fans and when this broke last night I got a couple of messages saying he's shit but he'll get 1-2 decent crosses in during most games but the rest of the time he'll just get caught in possession or cross straight into the first man.  For me, as I've said before, if we sold Bacuna, Richards and Hutton I could let it go but signing him with all the right sided players we have when we already have a squad that's too big is fucking stupid.

I can only say - oh dear and how predictable

How the hell do the bookies make us favourites to get promoted  ::)

Boring, lazy, uninspiring football management. Like his footballing 'style'.
Bruce is fecking predictable , if nothing else.

Surely if he just wants someone who's quick, occasionally belts a decent cross in, but is otherwise up to not much, he could just stick with Bacuna.

he sounds like Hutton then thou Hutton rarely gets a good cross in

This signing is ok if Hutton and Richards would do one.

So, Bruce is an idiot for signing a player he's had at two previous clubs, both of which he got promoted, who he obviously knows and trusts.

WHo knows what will happen to the players we currently have? We've possibly got a number of them lined up to go and instead of selling them first and people complaining that we're left with unsuitable cover, we're preparing and getting someone in.

As for up front, currently we have Kodjia, Hogan, McCormack and the kids and Agbonlahor. The first three, if they are committed, training well and performing to their potential should be more than enough to lead the line with support from Grelaish, Adomah, the kids, etc.

Don't panic.

That's 3 enormous 'ifs' where McCormack and Hogan are concerned.

For £1m I think it's potentially a good deal

It does leave us a little heavy on that side of the pitch though!

Put Richards & Gabby on the left then.

Yes, but the reality is that they are both proven at this level. Reports so far suggest things are going well re attitude and training....
