He’s played in the Champions league, Europa league, Premier League and Ligue 1. If he’s fit and bothered he might be quite exciting.

My only concern is that he's had more clubs than Tiger Woods...do like the sound of him if Holloway can get a tune out of him though...

This will be the 3rd time Ollie has signed him. He clearly rates the guy so why shouldn’t we?

Maybe Ollie is his agent ?

You'd never have guessed you love Europe Kingston... 😅

As for Grandin; a stopgap to bulk out the squad and bring competition for places till the end of the Season at which point Ollie can seek out more long term options?

And/or reward Grandin with another year if he's proved himself useful?

Ollie's been thrust into a job with an immediate brief window, he might be lumping for faces that are tried and trusted with him without having the time to do full due diligence on everybody he doesn't know personally given the shirt time frame available and all his many other tasks to be on with.

Im sure our scouting network isn't extensive!

Of we get a good 18 months out of Grandin... it will be more than we've got out of most of the players we've signed over the past few years!

Like with every project there are short term and long term goals.  This signing is to give the fans a taste of the exciting players and football to come.

I am sure there is a long list of more long term signings to follow in the summer as he builds a team for us to be proud of.

Obviously being in the basement division means we will have to be a bit realistic of the standard of player even Ian Holloway will attract but if he can't turn the tide who can?

One of my best mates is a Blackpool fan and he's amazed that we're in for him. Said he was class on his day in the Prem and the Championship. Did say he's not a L2 type player and that he doesn't know how he's done over recent years.
