£1.3 million for a player who scored quite a few goals in a poor team last season looks like a good buy.

I agree it does look good on paper, but so did Ian Moore at the time. This lad is young and probably as quite a lot to learn. Apparently Scunny fans say he is always off-side, so thats one thing we need to coach him on, but if we keep buying players with age on their side we should be a very strong side in a year or two as long as we keep hold of them. He has stated that he wants to come here which is another positive. Lets get a few more signed before July before we can add a few free transfers and loan players to the squad.
