Optimists say he'll be an excellent addition.

Pessimists say it's a waste of money.

As that amount of money is £1m, I don't think the latter should get too worried. In the mad world of football, it's hardly risk of the century, is it?


it's this sort of post that does my head in

we can't just keep filling the squad with bang average players no what they cost,
 they will still be on big money and on contracts and will just add to the general lowering of the bar that's been going on for years now

Hull fans don't want him why should we be happy with lesser clubs cast offs,
the whole things becoming rediculous

You are totally ignoring context.

For example - sign a 1m player as a squad addition, but then go on to make more clearly higher quality signings, then that is fine.

The problem is when, say, you sign a piss cheap midfielder and then they play 100 (I mean 'a lot' here, so no need for anyone to say they've googled and it's actually 50)  games for you and look crap in almost all of them (ie Westwood) and you don't sign anyone else.

I agree with this but it backs up my point that he's not the sort of signing you make when tyou have 3-4 players in his position already because he's the sort of player you sign to cover for a year or 2 whilst Green and Bree get settled and build up some experience but we have De Laet, Hutton and Adomah who can do that already.

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.

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....

And the actual real reality is that they've both been dire for us, and the pre-season friendlies aren't doubg anything to dispel that.

Was thinking about it earlier Paul - De Laet hasn't featured yet so there still must be fitness concerns, a team have put a bid in for Hutton, Bacuna is on international duty so will need some and Bree is still young and a bit raw.  On reflection, we might just need that extra cover at RB, especially early in the season.
