Jack Colback not in the 25 squad
« on: Friday 25 April 2014, 11:03:45 pm »
Probably too much linking for it to be a coincidence (plus he fits the main criteria of being free/cheap) so might as well have his own thread.

:anguish: not you like but him and the club.
:lol: I dunno. I'm starting to think it was us.
Trump will do well man. Don't know why but I really feel this will be the case. Really hope it will come to be that way.

I reluctantly voted yes, but he would ONLY be a good signing provided he is used as a backup for the first team, in a perfect world we would spend some proper money on some quality to fill out the midfield area.

Whenever I've seen him play for the mackems he always seems pretty tidy on the ball and stood out at times in a s**** team.

Worth a punt.

Proper grim, this. Sounds like a Pardew signing.

I don't mind it tbh. Obviously as a fringe player.

But obviously he'd be the first man on the team sheet. That would any be canny.

Decent player imo, would be a better squad option than the likes of Gosling. Free transfer so can't really complain.

He'll get on the pitch ahead of Anita no doubt. A nice CM pairing of Gosling and Colback. I'm excited.
Aye. Just felt I did it at the same time as you and you came out tops every time. Just in a bad mood now after Pixelhax.

Have to get this out now:

Pixel you're either hacking with the demo, or you're too f***ing good to constantly hammer us to the ground with it every time we play. Starts to take the p*ss a bit. I mean, I don't want you to not enjoy the game, but at the same time I'd quite like to enjoy playing it too.

Let's sign another player with no outstanding qualities to add to the current mass.

I'm sure Shola will be thrilled at least  :lol:

You can though, because he'll end up on the pitch ahead of better players.

They're definitely rubbing their hands with glee about how much it'll p*ss us off. Such a massive bonus to them on top of the already almighty bonus of him being free and on £8 a week.

meh free transfer, looked competent whenever I've seen him and another body can't really complain.

I'm going with the obvious answer:

As replacement for Gosling, I've no problem at all. But if it's for Cabaye? We're in trouble.
