Has he lost some weight?

Funny how good he was that 1 season that people still talk about him.

He has more talent in his little toe than Liam Kelly does in his whole body but he has always looked severely unfit. Wouldn't want him at the club, especially not in a relegation battle.

Arrogant. One trick pony and the single most one-footed player ever.

No.

It's been a while since we've had, as the 15 year olds on Twitter would put it, a "banter signing". I'm in.

Who was our last? Drenthe? Or is that only in hindsight?

Actually, tbf, John O'Shea could be one. But before that, definitely Drenthe

If we have to have a "banter signing" I want that striker with the drug ban.

So talented, could be our version of Knockaert who took Brighton up. But... Gomes wants players who press? No chance of that with this guy

I just looked him up and it turns out his ban is already over so my bad. Jose Angulo is the man I meant.

It is something my 10 year old son says. All the cool kids are saying it these days.

If, and it's a big IF, we get a player who wants to prove a point and is actually fit then this could be an excellent signing but as that's probably unlikely going by his past performance - I'll pass.

Although he could be brilliant he was a real troublemaker at QPR. According to Neal Warnock's biography he went missing a lot, did not train but because he was so good he still picked him. Result, allegedly a lot of unrest from other players. Good book but as per usual good old Neil blames everything else for his leaving. Will still miss him when he eventually retires!!

Exactly the sort of signing we should be avoiding.

Another big ego with loads of talent and oxf*rd all application.
