Good age, sounds like he has "legs" has been in a successful / winning side, whats not to like. Welcome to the Baggies Conor. Much rather have signings of this ilk than overage, overpaid journeymen

Spot on. Gibbs has no hunger and limited ability, this lad will be desperate to play and play well, hope he breaks into the team.

Hopefully he does well, feels odd to sign a player from league 1 for a change...I think the last one was possibly Simon Cox?

I do wonder if this means Gibbs will be off? Anyway, it's good to get another body through the door. Does anyone know how much he cost?

750k apparently.

Watching him get interviewed at half time, there is no way he is onlt 5,6. Was a good 2 or 3 inches taller than the bloke interviewing him, and loked reasonably same size as the stewards around him.

He isn't huge, but maybe more 5,8 or 5,9.

This is what a Scunthorpe fan said about him on another site:
"Probs best left back in L1, gets forward and has a good cross on him. Comfortable on the ball and he’s definitely a lot taller than 5’6"

So perhaps you are right.

Welcome Conor. :)

Now we have a proper backup for Gibbs.
Last season we have to play Nyom at left back when Gibbs was injuried.

Are you thinking of James O’conner the guy we bought from Stoke?

When Conor ran for his medical he had already covered more ground than the last Townsend did for us!

I’m  assuming he meant Andy Townsend. Hard to see how he thought someone with the same Christian name as someone else’s surname were related. Unless it’s Neville Neville .

he might be worth a try at left sided midfield in front of Gibbs.If it doesn't work shelve experiment.

Very good shift from him last night, some vital last ditch interceptions when Blues had run through our OAP midfield.

After a run of games is beginning to look like a very decent signing indeed

Might well be needed if we fail to go up and somebody poaches Gibbs

Thought he did well last night against Costa, not the best but he stopped most things coming into the box on our left side. Personally don t think Gibbs is that much better as a defender.

At last.

Townsend gets undeserved stick. No he's not Derek Statham but he's competant enough to do a job when required at this level. Did a decent job last night.

I think we should put him on corners, his delivery is very good. What we would
do for Brunts left foot just for corners!

I thought exactly that last night. We should be able to bring him on every time we have a corner.  8)

Generally thought he did pretty well yesterday....and yes he has a good cross on him so could be worth a shot at the corners when on the pitch.
There have been calls of Brunt for the last 20 mins to get crosses in but that's evidently not in our game plan much as Townsend can put a good ball in but we don't see it happening....Pereira got on the end of one top Townsend cross late on against somebody but generally we don't seem to utilise this much.
