More to the point, what position?

More importantly, why? We're not going to probably play again this season by the look of things.

He'll be unveiled holding a black and white striped Hazchem suit and face mask.

It's all relative isn't it. If you live in New Zealand, Norwich is near Bristol.

Central midfielder apparently

Will he ever get the chance to play for us?

Given the comments on the Bradford site, the situation at Stevenage and the fact that EFL are instigating an investigation into the postponement did Town call the game off in accordance with EFL guidelines or  acted arbitrarily on this?

Beggars belief that the EFL does not have in place strict protocols for this type of situation in which case no investigation should be necessary.

It’s just impossible to get any interest in this season and I would suggest it be brought to a halt and given the need to play 46 games it seems an impossible task for this season to be completed without scrapping all cup competitions and agreeing to play 2 games per week from say January to June, subject to this virus being under some sort of control which appears highly unlikely.

God what a mess

For crying out loud, surely we've got enough in there with Clifton, Edwards, Rose, Williams, Hewitt, sure I've missed someone, we need a proven striker, an old head up front, I don't care if he doesn't track back, run round like a greyhound, we need a fox in the box, surely with all the players out of contract there's somebody willing to come here and finish their career with a last hurrah..

So he hasn't even played a single game for his parent club in 4 years. They must regard him so highly! I bet they are laughing their tiits off that they have managed to offload him again.

It could just be a case of getting more players through the door as cheap as possible to have more options for a fit starting XI

It's fluffing out the squad with players we don't need, he's come here on loan to play games but can't see him being more than bench warmer, it's not a position we needed to strengthen in, that's where I'm coming from..not that it matters because I can't see this season being see out to be honest

Some FGR loan footage in this. Can certainly ping a diagonal!

Tweet 1252926235124080640 will appear here...


Is IH sending a message to some senior players here? Is Tilley homesick? Bristol will expect him to play a good percentage of games so who misses out?

Henderson has only played one game for his parent club (Man United).  He is a half- decent player.

Anyway welcome to GTFC James, nothing to do with you but we are all feeling miserable at the moment with how things are going   :)

Think we should not be too quick to criticise Ollies choice of signings.
Ollie has certainly had more experience of footy management than me, despite what I might think about our current perilous position

So he has to wait 2 weeks to see his teammates?

or maybe Holloway isn't too impressed with his additions so far and thinks we do need to strengthen.

This is spot on not in every case but in many , they’ve just not impressed him one bit

He's probably a bit drunk off himself. His home club have sent him out on loan to Grimsby Town FFS

Genuinely excited by this one.

Looks like he spreads play like a young Charlie Adam did for Blackpool.

Desperately needed this type of player.

Its balderdash

I thought it was somebody who lives a lavish lifestyle and basically has more money than sense.

Its OK getting a player who can spray the ball all round the park, but if we havent got players who can run for 90 minutes and chase these 'wonder' passes, then we may as well have Ray Wilkins in midfield passing it backwards all the time........and yes I know he has passed on.....but even then he only went sideways!
