Who was it that gave Kalinic a 5 year contract?
Smith's first signing.

I thought it was a Bruce agreed deal just before he got the bullet and we were comitted to take him

You mean agreed deal so it still went through?
Could have been.

Kalinic was going to be signed by Remi Garde but we couldn't get a work permit sorted.  Based on his performances for us you can see why.

Point being, it was on Purslow's watch.

We had signed Croatia's No 1 international keeper. It was just a signing that didn't come off, it happens.

Yeah, to be fair I think for a player who we'd fancied for a while, Croatia's No 1, when we were playing in the Championship and probably expecting another season there ... I think it's just one that hasn't worked out either for us or him.  He's not hit the ground running, and we've progressed faster than expected so it's a difficult time for him playing catchup.

He was shocking.  I remember coming away from the game at Wigan thinking that was the worst debut I'd seen since Ugo's absolute very firstest debut game in the world ever.

Was Ugo's worse than Woodgate's for Real Madrid?

The silence is deafening. Nature/Talksport abhors a vacuum/There's no air like dead air etc. We demand to be told !(unless it's Tom Fox and his fake news progenitor, the false narrative).

All I've seen is that he confirmed we're losing about 1m for every home game without fans.

Running a football club Hookey, is very much like making love to a beautiful woman.
