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.
Can he pen some witty anicdote about Tim Fisher?
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.
The telegraph stating he has agreed to join.
Norwich City play-maker set to sign for Coventry City
Sounds promising. I wonder how he will fit in with Duck / McNulty / Vincenti / Jones.
Destroyed us when norwich beat us 6-1 last season, hell of a signing this would be
The only concern for me is that the Smellygraph have broke the story. They have not been anywhere near our other signings.
Andreu's playing style has been compared to Cesc Fabregas.
in the CT, so a rumour for now...
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
Does Michael Doyle have a French grandad ?
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
said it time and time again by everyone on the forum but worth repeating,robins really sees it like the fans do,we all know we needed a number 10 and hes gone out and got one,excited for saturday!
Now just need cover for Kelly and Doyle.
wait for it to be confirmed before I have a tattoo
Only tattoo I have ever wanted has been Audrey.
A poet too! very talented.
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!
Best signing of the summer.
Well done Robins. Top signing
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
grimmers looked good to me and easily our starting rb. yes made a bad mistake tuesday but thats about it?
I thought Boozy was a great passer but just too slow.

Impact sub do really believe he could be one of them.
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.
