    But you could withdraw match day commentary - that's a far greater threat!

    I'll call him Mike, then at games when I say it people around me will think I know him personally.

    He likes to be called 'MD' or 'The MD'

    Although from what I remember he rarely manages to direct a pass.

    Lads, hey, Lads. Yeah?

    I've changed my mind, had a few beers last night and TBH for me 'there's always an element Of Meh"
    attached to any signing we make, just down to the "why would they come here if they were any good.
    Looking at this in the cold light of day, and providing his fitness is good this looks a very shrewd bit of
    Business, hopefully a sign of things to come with MR at the helm.:emoji_thinking:

    I reckon I'm just gonna have to resign myself to the fact he's back :(

    Even after sleeping on it I'm still really sad and disappointed by it!

    I will just hold my own protest by refusing to applaud his name as it's read out, refuse to stand when / if he scores, and if you see any commentary during the season that has no name associated to it you know it's relating to him! Or I will have to make a nickname for him!

    If he goes on to become our player of the season (or to make it fairer wins any award at the end of the season) I will join the 'donate to charity' thing we have going on here! :)

    He isn't a Marlon King, or a Lee Hughes you know? He hasn't killed anyone or beat the s**t out of women! :happy:

    Either I'm colour blind or too sodding lazy to find one the proper shade. :bag:

    What disappoints me is the age. Again it all smacks of short term. I would like to see players coming in who are potentially going to be around for 2-3 years. At that age what you have done the last couple of seasons stands for nothing. We have seen it so many times players come here and their legs go.

    I know, I know, but I can't just start liking him on that basis! That would be slightly hypocritical!

    Really was unsure about him in The Championship, but we have been crying out for men in this team in years of just having weak children everywhere.

    Given that he has been the captain in a team winning the League we are going into I can't see this being anything other than good. Now we need more signings and to get the squad complete as soon as possible. Even if we don't get promoted, having Doyle in the team should go some way to stopping us getting relegated.

    Also, it looks like @sw88 has caught the Jacob Murphy bug from me. Next thing you know he'll be having 'accidental' typos when Doyle scores and does the commentary on here!

    I don't remember this but assuming this must've been me. Whoever I made the bet with tell me which charity and how much :-) Was it something to do with Leon Clarke goals scored?

    He has a year left on his deal but they haven't released their list of players up for sale yet.

    We will be signing Division 4 players. We want a good enough squad to get promoted but not stuck with them on long contracts.

    Given the last fiasco involving a bet when I was told my charity wasn't good enough I'm somewhat reluctant but this seems a banker to me.

    So what is it - 35 games in the league?

    Ok I will do it as well. Pleased confirm acceptance.
