    Tim Vickery is a legend, used to listen to his BBC radio football show years ago at like 2AM or something ffs, when I was a football nerd.

    It was obviously a scam signing by Raul and Kia, we sign a new CB every window where will this guy fit in when he returns? It's a mess.

    I don't get why guys were going so hard for him in this thread, it's like just cos a few guys didn't rate him others felt they had to go extra hard in convincing us it's a good signing.

    I can’t take anyone seriously who says he’s a great or awful signing at this point. We’ve not seen anywhere near enough of him.

    At the moment all one can really say is that he’s dirt cheap and fits the profile Arteta wanted in defence. Conclusions as to his quality will have to wait until he actually plays for us.

    He may as well not have done.

    Beyond irrelevant, and not good enough.

    Have a feeling that's going to be very little, which could be fine if he's not a total trainwreck.

    He was cheap and would likely just play backup to Gabriel or Tierney on the LCB ball playing position.

    Saliba is a much more worrysome use of money, given he's fit and not even registered.

    How do you know he's not good enough before you've seen him play?

    I've seen him in three games. He was fine against League One fodder and suspect in both PL games.

    Arteta worked with him at City. This is not simply a Kia, brown paper bag signing. Good back up for Gabriel, but I don't see how the two play together unless we keep the back 3.

    Pointless addition, like putting cheese in salad.

    Must have seen this terrible defender play against City. He was about to be getting trared apart by City before his injury. Lucky fellah.

    Yeah, he really didn't look very good on first glance. Massive lack of pace and was loosing the runs of the City players constantly.

    This signing made no sense at the time and makes no sense now. Its just more deadwood occupying NHG spots in the squad.
