Danny Drinkwater (confirmed - on loan)
« on: January 07, 2020, 10:48:05 AM »
May as well have his own thread as this looks increasingly likely.

A player who wasn't good enough to get in a team who have just been outclassed by Villa. Hmm. Prove me wrong, Danny.

Seems a gamble to use one of our two loan slots on a player who has been so out of form.  But if he steps up he could be very useful.  Big IF though.

Does seem to be one of those O'Neill type ego signings where he's been bought in to prove what a good manager/coaches we have to get a tune out of him when others cant.

Still, he was very good at Leicester so there is something to work toward.

I can say with 100% certainty that my brother, who has little time or patience for unadventurous footballers, will fucking hate him by about his third appearance.

How uninspiring, boring and desperate. Just what we need: another one paced, weed of a midfielder. The mind boggles.

Not a fan.

Mind you, he might be trying to win his England squad place back, so we could have a highly motivated player on our hands.

Now he's here, I will cast all reservations behind me and give him a chance.

For me, I'm now 100% behind him and am looking to the future, not what has gone on in the past.

Shit signing. Underwhelmed. Another player signed who hasn't done bugger all for years, like the bad old days again.

I fully expect this to be an awful signing, oh well we’ll see.

This signing doesn't smell very good.

Prove us all wrong.

Think it is the right type of signing, in that it is a central midfielder who has top flight experience, but not sure it is the right person to be honest given his recent past.

Also not sure we should have burned a loan on that position.  We really could do with a permanent option in that position and use loans to fill in more short-term needs like a keeper.
