I highly doubt we'd be spending anything more than a nominal fee on this guy, btw.

I should f***ing hope not.

If there's not a clause or an injury we'll not be signing any c***.

f***ing joke.

Forster's gone out on loan, unless you mean Soderberg.

Another 'under the radar' signing.

Krul would seem to be the number 1, Forster only wants to be first choice so he's gone to Celtic, Harper is either injured or out of favour and Soderberg is too young/not rated enough to cover Krul = We need a keeper for cover.
Thier is not a word. "Their" is the correct spelling.

Not injured according to local press.

All well and good until Krul gets injured and then we've got a f***ing League One player in goal.

And he's a ginger.

Wonderful.

Suppose it's slightly better when s*** players come in under the radar.

I wore a sondico bib in training the other day. Felt like a proper player.

Any negative feelings are obviously magnified and exacerbated by the gaps at left back and up front.

Maybe the order is going to be Krul, Harper then Elliot?

Are we seriously going to hand one of our 25 squad places to a league 1 goalkeeper?   :kinnear:

Caulkin reporting the latter will be on the bench on Sat. (believe what you will? I'm perplexed)

Seems like he's completely sacrificing his career to become our 2nd/3rd choice.

So we're signing Harper MKII then? ;)
