What's everybody's opinion of him as a player?

Won't make us a better team. Feels like a signing for the sake of it. 

 

We've got enough sub 6ft midfielders to fill 2 teams. We need some strength, and pace. Crying out for it.

I think he adds a bit of physicality, even if he doesn't add height. He's a stocky lad and he gets up and down the pitch.

Potentially not adding strength and pace might cost Carlos his job!

In terms of what we've already got, who is he most similar to?

Lee, Abdi, Bannan, Wallace. 

 

Butterfielf is a decent player, but one of the reasons Winnall has gone is that we've got other players that can do his job. 

 

We seem to get out priorities cockeyed.

Strong lad, good passer; decent engine. Could be good for us. Let's wait and see.

Could see him playing a 2 with Bannan, and we'd have probably the best distribution from centeral midfield in the league at that point.
He improves our starting 11 imo, in place of Jones, as he's more forward looking.

 

Whether we have the players to feed off it, I'm not sure.

 

Rhodes and Hooper will benefit from it a lot.. but out wide.. Reach and Nando, ok.. but on the right it still feels like we're sadly lacking. Boyd's not really go involved, Wallace seems like he's lost it a bit, and we don't have a solid enough right back to just let Matias run riot on the flank.

If you want an opinion on him, probably best not to ask the Derby fans!

 

I couldn't tell whether they were being truthful about his awfulness or just being classic opposition fans. If it's the former I can imagine there is a seat on the bench that will be occupied by him for an extended period.

Lee - injured, Hutch - injured, Abdi - injured or not fit....

....leaving Jones and Bannan in central midfield.

 

Hoops, Fletcher, Rhodes, Forestieri, Nuhiu, Joao to choose from up front.

With no further transfers allowed until January I think it's a good bit of business.

OK he has skill, vision, is a good passer and takes a mean freekick and corner but how the hell will this improve us?

No bad thing on this season's evidence so far. Looks a tad stronger too.
