Big Chris looks like he is off to Deepdale which means a real change in attacking emphasis. Austin, JayRod, Thomo and Pato. Who knows it may just be a recipe for goals.

Not only will he be able to score goals for us, but can help with any redevelopment of the ground. Seriously great catch Eddie.

Good point SheC - certainly hope he can build on the success he has had so far. Older viewers will remember Steve Austin, the six million dollar man, from the seventies. Let's hope young Charlie has his pace and vision. Seriously, a great signing and I suspect the first of a few over the next year as Eddie and Jason start to shape the team into one that suits their methods.

A great first signing. I wanted us to sign this lad in summer, he's got a great record he's young, quick and MOBILE! Eddie says he's a hard worker too, plus if he works out we will always be able to sell him on for more money. I'd just like to compare Howe's first signing with Laws first signing, Austin and Cort. Everyone here is like thats a great signing of a young player. With Cort it was like, lets wait and see and after two games it was like £1.5 mill for that! Come to think of it thats two of Laws signings that can't actually run.....

Just thought of another point, when I saw on SSN last night that Ipswich had agreed a fee, I thought well thats out of the window for us. Isn't it nice for the club to pursue somebody and the manager to win him over and get him!! Why is it that I'm starting to get excited about us again? Haven't felt like this since Susan left.
