The mirror is saying we also sighed Henri Camara on loan?
Also on KUMB.
He is as fast as Bellamy, could be interesting.
He's signed on loan. The Hammers official website has confirmed it! But neither he nor Solano can play tomorrow.
He may be as fast as Bells, but you have to be able to control the ball and do something with it. This guy is a Wigan reserve. He has hardly set the PL alight, has he?
I'd rather have had a player that wasn't fast, but had skill. Peters and Brooking couldn't run as fast as me, but they both made me look a complete idiot with a football. Greaves was not fast either, but couldn't he score goals.
I may be very wrong, and he will be a success, but I doubt it.
What's his injury record like, by the way?
Unlucky Dudes. You might get a few good months out of him, like every clubs he seems to have been at gets. You might even get him cooing over how he has found his "spiritual home".
He has talent, there isnt any doubt about that, he's just very very inconsistent. He had a fantastic first season with us but it was all down hill after that. Jewell gave him free reign to have 3 or 4 days a week off to travel to Paris to see his wife and son, he started sulking about one thing and another, his agent started to tout him around to everyone, and injuries hit and tbh, even though he was rubbish last season, he was probably never fully fit - mostly muscle injuries, hamstring, groin, thigh, name it and he had them at some point.
He also, allegedly, has a MOOSIVE ego. We arrent the type of club who "does" egos. Maybe being in a squad with the likes of Bellamy and Dyer, who despite having massive egos doe have a bit of talent too, may knock him down a peg or two
I sighed too.
Bit of a panic buy I think as we need cover in the striking department.
Why are both Camara and Solano ineligible to play?
Because they need to be registered with the FA by 5pm Friday evening to play on a Saturday
As batch said the guy can be the DB's has a fair amount of skill, pace and everything.
He's one of those players who's form never seems to last unfortunately. When hes good though he looks very good. When hes sh1te he is awful.
Panic buy yes, but lets hope we get something good out of him.
