‘Have just seen some of his goals on utube and he looks class.
Also he has the same showboating skills of trundel.
If he gets his work permit then we are in for a very entertaining season..’
‘All in all you have signed a quality player, and he’ll be sorely missed for us up here, (not that im bitter or anything)’
