Yes sorry meant apprehensive. 

For reference I was never one of the grammar police on here that another poster alluded to in their missive the other day. 

Returning to the original point if he's not ready to play football then again don't see what value he would add to the team. 

 

Fair enough. Although none of us know how fit he currently is. Also, looking beyond the short term, think he would be an excellent addition for next season.

Let's be honest we cant lose here , a beast of a bloke makes CKR look like olive oil , just what we need,  if he saves us from relegation and we have to sack him 6 months later so what ? , there is a chance he has learnt his ways ain't good and turned into a saint . Sign him and get him out there .when the opposition size him up in the tunnel they will already be 1-0 down mentally .

As long as he is fit enough to contribute quickly.

Does is little good if it takes till April to get him match fit.

Another one that's physical & horrible. Just what we need in my opinion. Can see him being another CKR type. Won't get bullied by the opposition & won't let others around him get bullied. We lack opinions & for free he provides another attacking option 

We all have an option to have an opinion but I agree with you, G-Ram. No more Mr Nice Guy. There appears to have been so many cynical fouls against us this season. We need to stand up and be counted. If Wayne says that he does not want other teams to enjoy playing against us then he has a clear plan in place to make us competitive but fair.

We need a Martyn Khul or George Williams type  in midfield. More so now than this time yesterday.

I know a lot on here won't have seen him play, but what we could do with a a new Dave MacKay. Once saw a Sheffield United player go into a crunching tackle on him, MacKay just leaned into him as the tackle came in and the guy bounced off him. He had to have treatment for about ten minutes. He came back on with his head bandaged up and looked like he didn't know where he was. No concussion protocol in them days.

It was only 4 months ago that he was sacked.  There shots of him training in, I think, Dubai with a football coach.  I guess he is almost ready.

Folk are understandably concerned about the lad's fitness but let's not forget that we'll be in the Championship next season too. I'd be very keen on securing the lad's services to be honest. He's a very decent player and offers all the attributes we are looking for - pace, power, a bit of the street dog about him and an eye for goal. He's no one-dimensional bruiser either. There's plenty of raw ability and technique there to complement the obvious physicality. It's a yes from me if Wazza can work his magic.

He wasn’t sacked until November was he 😂

It was actually September. Lol. 

Hopefully Wayne will thank me later.

Am I missing something? He’s 5’10” and less than twelve stone. Beast?

I think that 12 stone figure might have been from when he was about 10 years old buddy. The guy's a proper fookin unit. Maybe they just weighed one of his arms  😆
