This ties in with what I've been told about KKH from someone who knows him.
Seems a decent bloke who's willing to put himself out to help people.

Always comes across as decent lad (and fantastic player) but there are some on here who say different....

Chisom Afoka Has just come in to make his Bradford debut.

I had no idea that Mark Hughes was their manager

Yes, he's been there about 18 months, but he may not be there for much longer.

Exeter lost their first game of the season conceding 2 goals, first game Sinisalo hasn't played in.

He's quite a big lad...

He was a centre forward, he had to be.

Quite a few games in the lower leagues called off due to international call ups, so why did Exeter play ?

No idea. Seems it was one of only two played today.

Don't you have to be missing at least three players for a game to be postponed?

Another clean sheet for Sinisalo at Exeter. They're back up to 1st. Might make them my second team this season, I've become very invested in them already.

Looks like there was about 20 mins of stoppage time in their game too, so Sinisalo getting lots of game time on loan.

Is Sinisalo the best of our young keepers? Feel like one of them might actually come through.

I think so, I'd argue he's already a better keeper than Olsen and I think the plan is for him to get another year of experience under his belt before coming back as our backup keeper for next year.

I've been having a nosy on the Exeter City fan site and they seem very impressed. Interestingly they weren't happy with the signing initially and there was a lowlights video of him doing the rounds, I think taken from his loan spell last season, which didn't go well. He didn't play well in the first preseason game he featured in, but they seem to have accepted that was a team effort at being shit, and since the season started they're all very happy with him. There's a couple of "don't fall in love with a loan player" posts, and some of them have praised how vocal he is. There's footage from the Reading game where he's shouting in the pre-match huddle to pump them all up.

No idea what the quality of teams are like in League 1 but they've kept a lot of clean sheets, and I think their only loss was last week when he was on international duty. I think they're joint 1st at the moment, so hopefully they'll be pushing for promotion all season. But all in all he seems to be doing very well. At the very least we might be able to sell him for 15mil to a newly promoted side next summer.

My daughters boyfriend goes to Exeter every home game and says he’s been superb for them so far.
