Next signing almost over the line....Happy about this?


Recommended Posts

For £200k the reward outweighs the risk. 
 

I’ve been sceptical because I’m unsure how he fits into the side. His seasons of scoring 14 & 19 at this level both came playing as a sort of inside right winger. However I think he will be used a ST alongside Smith, Gregory & Paterson. 
 

All things considered it’s a good signing when you consider his age, fee, goals & promotion from this level.

200k for someone whose scored 19 and 14 goals at this level and is still only 23? 

 

Seems like a pretty good deal to me!

 

Yep.

 

If we get Wilks for £200k, that would be a great deal.

 

I figured he'd be in the region of £500k-£1m.

A good signing but that’s now Wilks, Gregory, Smith, Windass and Paterson up front.

 

We won’t be playing him out wide as we play wingbacks and it’s starting to feel like we have one too many forwards.

 

I’m not moaning as he is a good signing but it feels a little bit like when we signed Winnall but then went and got Rhodes anyway as well.

 

I really don’t want to come across as negative as he is a good signing but I just feel like with so many strikers, there’ll be a lot of chopping and changing up front and it’ll not allow the continuity for a partnership to form over time.

I reckon we could sell Paterson for £200k or loan him out get a loan fee and save his wages will be £200k

 

Gregory, Smith, Wilks, Widnass all for £200k bargin!

 

Windass reportedly cost us around £500k.

 

Still, £700k for that lot vs £8m for Jordan Rhodes puts things into perspective, doesn't it?

 

😳

If he can get back to the player he was then an excellent signing, if he doesn't Darren is going to take a kicking.

 

I'm optimistic he will.

 

 

Bloody sad news about Harry Gration RIP

 

 

 

What are you optimistic about?

 

That Wilks will get back to what he was

 

or

That Darren Moore is going to take a kicking.lol

Sounds like a done deal. Will bring age of squad down a fair bit and did well last time

he played in League 1. Could be a bargain for £200k

£200k is a pisstake if true. When  he wants DC does know how to  negotiate. Well done. 

 

Would be the most intriguing signing so far, a player who could really develop into an asset.

Moore wants to play different formations, according to the likes of Dom Howson.

 

We could see Windass and Wilks used as two of the '3' in a 4-2-3-1 at times, perhaps?

Nice to have options, isn’t it? 
 

Without sounding over excited, it feels like this is the clearest and most balanced squad we’ve had in a few years. With a couple more defensive additions, we look like we could line up in any 1 of 3 or 4 different systems with real depth and quality across the park.

Yeah I don’t doubt that pal, just giving my opinion in a thread where the OP was asking if we were happy with the signing.

Which to me suggests there’ll be quite a lot of “tinkering” with the forward line.
