    Jesus, TSS, I can’t keep up with all your threads today!

    I have to say that I’m genuinely excited about seeing Nunez play for us. The unknown element means he could be absolute class (don’t consider the alternative). If I knew he was going to join us then I’d have shown more interest in Honduras at the World Cup when he played for them. As it was, Honduras battled hard to be my least interesting team to watch and although I’m told that I saw them play the full ninety-minutes twice, I’m damned if I can recall a positive football comment to make about them.

      This is linked from the live updates thread. Just keep an eye on that, and I’ll post full stories up whenever someone signs.

    I’m quite hopeful on Nunez. He’s a small lad who hasn’t really played European-style football yet let alone English football, but he seems to have tidy footwork from highlights that include him on youtube (and the WC) and he knows where the goal is.

    With a relatively young Jonny Howson and Kilkenny who seems to struggle finishing a game (like that other, now disgraced Aussie) i’m happier having more high-level depth in the middle.

    his contract is just till january, so im not sure how much grayson plans on using him as for such as short contract i think he’ll need to significantly impress in training to just get in the team and impress in the team if he is to have his contract extended, sounds to me like grayson still hasnt made his mind up on this guy and sort of just extending the trial till january by giving him such a short contract

    His wage demands were a big stumbling block prior to to-day. I think the club didn’t want to commit to such high demands for say a three year deal for a player who has only ever played against Bradford Park Avenue in English football. Makes sense, and now we can all see what he’s made of in the Championship games.
