That's the worst signing we've ever made, embarrassing.

This is the definition of panic buying surely? Mears was never any good at his best. Desperate to get a right back in and it shows.

We're in serious trouble.

Signing a 35 year-old right back who has been playing in the MLS for the past 3 years - and has actually been released by a poor MLS side! Who even in his prime, wasn't good enough to be a Premier League right-back. Wow.

Makes HRK look like an inspired signing.

Surely would have made more sense to sign Cranie if we were struggling to bring in a right back and had to go down the free cheap option. ( or 100% would have made more sense to keep Kane Wilson here).

Welcome to the club Tyrone.

Based on the fact he's 35 and couldn't get into one of the worst teams in the MLS. Was deemed not good enough by Bolton 4 years ago.

I honestly wouldn't have been bothered if we didn't sign anyone this week, but this just confirms we've lost the plot.

From a playing point of view, who knows - might be an improvement on Nyom who's head had gone and a rolling contract so little to lose.

However, from a club and supporter point of view this is a mistake.  Shrieks of a lack of ambition and suggests our scouts have not come up with any other decent options so Big D gets one of his OLD mates in. 

Oh dear!

Good luck to him and we'll all be cheering him on but come on, this is taking the p*** isn't it?

Released by Minnesota? I can't quite believe what I'm reading.

The amount in wages which the Club has saved and we sign this?

They're taking us all for absolute mugs.

Agreed - this aspect of the signing is particularly concerning. If we're a serious club we should be well past any notion of signing players because our head coach or staff are mates with them. Doesn't reflect well on the scouting network and recruitment team.

Welcome to the club Tyrone.


Wilson can't even get a starting place at Walsall.

This is a shocking addition though. What the hell is going on at the club? If Darren Moore thinks it's a no brainer (as he has reportedly said) then I'm really starting to worry about his suitability to the role of head coach.

Shoot me if you like!

He will be cover. We don't need a new right back in 352 formation.

Darren Moore - “The mere fact that he has been in the MLS for the past three years is testament to his condition because you have to be physically right to compete in that league."

This sounds like self-delusion.

Yep, that's complete and utter bull compared with the Championship.

No 'almost' about it. Looked at objectively, it is bona fide comedy gold.

Doesn't look good.
Moore's going for someone he has first hand experience of, but that must have been a good few years ago. And we know, from experience, that a footballer's performance levels can drop off fairly rapidly around 35. Nobody can kid me the demands of the MLS are anywhere near the top end of the Championship.
 
Hope this is only a very short term solution.

A signing that begs several questions e.g is that really the best we can do , why a free agent now , what the hell is our scouting network  really  like , just how tight have the finances become , why oh why are we not utilising the loan market , why let youngsters out on loan only to be replaced by ageing has beens or in this case never wassers !! Big D is not helping himself with his platitudes about this kind of signing , a dose of the truth would go down much better than continually trying to kid the fans. Totally disgusted in truth by this signing makes absolutely no sense !!!
