I got this from eurosport mate they said deal was done just waiting for a anouncement. I don't know a lot about him but I do wonder why he never played for either club? But if Bruce thinks and this is his words Iam only buy players with that little bit of quality then he must be good? Surely Steve Bruce wouldn't get us a poor player? Iam hoping he will be more like Laursen rather than okore lol.

"Giving the youth a go" is fine assuming they are good enough. Maybe they are not.
I've nothing against playing young kids but they have to be good enough
It should be for the kids themselves to put in performances in front of Bruce that make it impossible for him to leave them out. Like Andre Green has done.

easy answer is if you had to google the lad he's not what we need right now.

He must have something, he is a pro, and an international at a decent national side.
Sometimes the player doesn't fit the club. Sometimes after this the player has a point to prove.
Ireland for example, wnak for us, look what happened at stoke.
ok bad example.

Cleverly. hang on.

Djemba djembe.

Look fine me a minute.

Got it, senderos.!

I give in. Walkthewalk was right, (that hurt! ) Don't sign him.

I know youth has to be good enough mendax but you missed my point mate. my point was that if we are going to take a chance on a guy that has NOT been good enough for Brighton and Southampton and has not made a single games for either then give that chance to one of our young defenders like the guy Bruce bought in for bury. he must see something in him he bought him. to me this is bs as tony has stated.

I didn't miss your point Kingy, you just didn't explain it well enough.
You have done now though and I can see where you are coming from
Now I just disagree with you mate.

what part do you disagree with. the fact that he is not good enough or the fact that you may as well give youth a try rather than waste money on a crap player. ?

I don't agree with your premise which seems to suggest, if we are going to play someone crap, play someone young and crap from the youth team
I agree that we shouldn't sign this guy if he's poor (I know nothing about him) but I don't conflate the argument to propose we play a youth player regardless of ability.

no I did not mean that mate. I don't want a poor player in the team full stop. what I ment was rather than waste money on a poor player give a untried young player a chance if they are deemed good enough. don't waste money on rubbish and never give a young guy a chance. for me we here a lot about how good our youth is but we never seem to bring em through and give them a run like other teams do like Southampton or spurs for example. yes we have jack in and out and green is pushing but still seems to me like the mindset is let's spend on x player who is a gamble rather than try our own lads.

But that's the point, we are giving young players a chance. In general they just prove not to be good enough.
Maybe we needed to question why that is?
Why are we not attracting youngsters of the right ability or what is wrong with our coaching methods once we have them.

scouts or lack of them were not good enough in UK and around world. tony said this when took over and one of the main things we are putting in place. let's hope we start to see the results of this in the future.

I'd agree with that mate.
