The likes of Krafth, Muto etc. Hope we never see a transfer like those again. Cheap and pointless.

Muto wasn't cheap. Looked decent to me most times he played, to be honest.

For a Premier League forward, Muto was cheap.

If Nickson recommended him, then he needs to f*** off sharpish too when we are taken over. If Emil Krafth has been floating his boat since 2014 then he is obviously f***ing terrible at his job.

sure Krafth was a Brewcie pick.

john gibson in the chronicle this afternoon;
"John Carver has talked of playing two up top in an effort to score goals, tactically be more direct to grind out points, and just about every other possibility known to man or beast. They are the ramblings of a drowning desperado."

probably made him drool, thinking of the cheeses slices on his burgers.

My only recollections of him in a toon top are him blazing over from about 4 yards out in some of the earlier games this season. 
s****.

Sure. But was scouted for 5 years before Bruce was appointed, but yeah, Bruce probably gave his ok to the deal. Bruce convinced Lee Charnley to spend some extra millions on him.

I heard a funny old rumour about the signing of Krafth. Essentially a good portion of the club's recruitment is done via agents or recruitment companies, which is not that strange in football. That said, we basically went out and asked for a right-back over 5ft 10 who was cheap, and Krafth was the name that came back. A friend who works in that field said his company was one that got the brief, and they suggested a few better options that were a few million more expensive.

He also couldn't fathom why we'd actually signed Krafth as every major metric had him as a very poor full-back when translated to 'Premier League standard'.

They definitely sent that brief out to companies and agents. Whether they sourced Krafth themselves I don't know, but he was adamant that them signing him fit the description they were given.

I doubt that.

Steve Nickson has scouted him since 2014. Emil Krafth has said he knew about the club’s interest and that they have been scouting him for the last 2-3 years.

It is a Nickson signing. Nickson highly recomended him to Steve Bruce (who then convinced Lee Charnley to spend some extra millions on him).

The truth is likely in the middle then.

Nickson had his man, the club tried to look at other options too and then settled on Krafth.

The club didn’t try anything. They looked at the list and bought the cheapest one

The thing is, I reckon under Benitez while he may not have been much better, he’d have been better. Either in terms of coaching, positioning, holding shape, etc.

What, like Benitez improved Lazaar you mean? Absolute rubbish mate, both your opinion and the pair of them.
