I wonder if he was one of the French lads on trial with us before the virus shut us down.


Thought the same Pete. IH said one of them was with an English club, so makes sense.

Possibly. Obviously not the one that came over from France but could have been the UK based one, although rumours were that the player was from Norwich City

Quoted from Ipswin
Surely there must be some (older) strikers with proven goal scoring records in the Football League out there without clubs,

An average of 1 in 4 or 5 would do rather than these young kids with no senior appearances to speak of and even fewer goals


That’s right Swin. We can’t be relying on young unproven forward players like Edwards, Tilley and Windsor to be scoring goals for us.

As much as I support IH I have to say the number of “strikers” signed, is a bit puzzling as is the failure to get in a more experienced one. All appear to have performed well at their respective levels but mostly untried, or to date unsuccessful, at L2 level.

Still shouldn’t judge a player until I have seen him perform a few times and like any player joining town I wish him every success but unsure when a number of these guys, particularly those on a one year deal, are going to get a chance to show their worth.

Seven, so two (at least) will be disappointed on match day.

I am a bit puzzled by this signing. And it doesnt fit in with what Holloway said earlier in the week.

I welcome the lad and wish him well. But we have signed a few young unproven forwards in this window. Holloway said he wanted a goalscorer...a guy with a proven track record of scoring goals. Someone to rely on. Yet he signs yet another young unproven player just like the others. Quick look on wiki shows he's scored 1 goal in just under 30 professional appearances. Not quite the proven goalscorer we need.

I am baffled.

His name can also be useful as a high word score when the team plays scrabble or are looking for an unusual anagram. Apparently, Virgil also means “flourishing”.  Let us hope that he does.
