    Signing on loan from Norwich, attacking midfielder that writes poetry. (Cheers wiki)

    This seems a coup of a signing, what's the catch

    Welcome to you, Tony Andreu. Signed on loan, which will provoke a moan.

    see, it's rubbing off already

    1 goal in 4, not bad considering doesn't seem to get the starts regular.

    Seems like a very good signing. City could well have a promotion team now.

    Stats look decent, experienced as well rather than a kid.

    Is this official or a rumour?

    Just what we needed. Hopefully now we can push McNulty up front and leave Beavon as an impact sub.

    Sounds promising. I wonder how he will fit in with Duck / McNulty / Vincenti / Jones.

    The only concern for me is that the Smellygraph have broke the story. They have not been anywhere near our other signings.

    Would think that McNulty would be pushed up front and then Andreu would play the number 10 role behind him.

    We're getting quite a French contingent now. Biamou, The Duke and now this guy
    Agree with Nick that it's great that he's experienced and not a kid
    We've got a great batch of promising kids ourselves so no need to give experience to other team's youngsters at the expense of our own boys

    Very pleased to hear he's experienced tried and tested, quite prolific in Scottish divisions.

    Will add strength to the squad for sure. Excellent work if confirmed

    If you consider that our squad needs 22 players, two for each position, then we are getting VERY near now:

    GK - LOB, Burge (RCC seems to be on the way out)

    RB - Grimmer, DKE
    CB - McDonald, Willis, Hyam, Pearson
    LB - Haynes, Stokes

    AM/Wing - Jones, Vincenti, Andreu, Nazon
    CM - Stevenson, Doyle, Kelly

    CF/striker - Beavon, McNulty, Thomas, Biamou

    OK so there are a few here who can play in different positions e.g. Stokes, Nazon, Biamou, but you do get the picture. I've left off the kids like Ponti, Shipley, Devon as am only counting experienced pros for the main first team squad with academy kids like that as additional emergency cover for our first team squad.

    On that basis we need a CM and arguable another RB (given the DKE is still very youthful and Grimmer seems questionable), other than it seems like the recruitment job is done (for now). 12 new signings, take a bow MR. Now let's hope that the quantity also has quality!

    Sounds exciting, hope he goes onto be better than that French midfielder Bouzelin we had once upon a time. City's best and worst ever Frenchman anyone? I'll go for best: Vincelot.
    Worst: kev Malaga

    I thought Boozy was a great passer but just too slow.

    I'm happy with Grimmer. This IS League Two and I think his positives are going to outweigh his negatives over the course of the season.

    Beavon is a great option to have off the bench for sure.

    Not sure about slow, but he always wanted too much time on the ball and consequently got dispossessed a lot.
