Wow calm down he wont play, just cover for injuries at best. Cover until Jan and then he will go and a replacement will be signed if needed. If he does play and is useless then feel free to moan but at least wait to judge.
I wonder who that mears is then in the starting 11 tonight?

Just bizarre.

Whatever happened to Crainie? 4 years younger and a fairly solid Championship player it seems. Sadly this singing stinks of the short-term option.

Five pages and he hasn’t been here 24 hours yet. What’s the highest number of pages on a topic, as it could be in danger of being surpassed ASAP!  ;D

I'll pass judgement after tonight, if he's a decent journeyman, that's ok as long he's on a small salary, we're going to need cover at times.

Was worse than average against Mansfield. It doesn't bode well.

Nothing to worry about as he will be back-up at best. Poor tonight.

It was only league 2 opposition but surely he wasn't THAT bad last night. I know a few have said he made mistakes first half, and having sat lower in the east stand it wasn't the best position in the ground to judge his performance with him being the other side of the pitch, but I watched him second hald and he didn't do much wrong and he was very fit.

Can't see how he can cope with the championship now having not been good enough 4 years ago, but feel the analysis from last night is maybe hyper critical.

is have to agree, he was nowhere near as bad as some people are making out, assuming he’s only been with us a day a doesn’t know the team he didn’t do bad. First half he got up the pitch well and could have nicked a goal if I remember rightly. As a back up option we could do worse.

Talk about not giving the guy a chance!!!

Firstly, the short term contract should tell us everything. It may be that the true intended target has not come off in this window, we may never know. Secondly I am impressed that so many of you remember him that well and can pass critical judgement on him. Why don't we give him a few games before we condemn him, base the comments on evidence not assumptions.

Gareth Macauley is 38 and he would still get in our team according to some. Give him a chance guys, we know its not the long term solution and we all have our opinions about how the club is being run, but its not Mears fault is it..........

and before you hit the keyboard in anger, no I am not comparing Gareth to Tyrone, the point was about the age  :D

Like some others have said he will be ok as a back up but nothing more. I bet Jenkins is happy with the summer business.

Spot on mate.

In all honesty, we probably wont see him play for us again (you would assume in a back four that Dawson and Tosin will be picked over him), if we are looking to move to a 3-5-2 formation then injury permitting, he isn't going to be taking Phillips place anytime soon, if Phillips does get injured I imagine we would shift to a 4-4-2 and use Daws or Tosin there anyway.

I have said it time and time again, some people just love to moan and pick faults. The guy has clearly been signed as a cheap back up as we aren't able to get out priority targets. If you look at the right backs we have been linked with, i.e James/Stacey then you can tell that DM wanted a younger fullback, so the fact that we have resorted to Mears, for me clearly shows we aren't able to get anyone in so we have just got some 'experienced' cover in until January.

Could that have been more effective to sign Crainie? Maybe so, but im guessing Mears is on a lower wage and more accustomed to the wingback role (going from comments on here and from people who were at the game) he seems to have a good engine on him.

Again though, I will be very surprised if he makes a league appearance for us.

Not that it really matters, but if the clause below, taken from EFL Regulations, is correct, then we must have signed Mears a day or so before last nights game

43.8 Subject to Regulations 43.2, 43.3 and 57, a Player will only be eligible to play in a match organised by The League if the appropriate forms for his registration or the transfer of his registration (including, for the avoidance of doubt, Temporary Loan Transfers) are received (including by facsimile) and found to be in order by The League by 12.00 noon on the day prior to the date of such match.

Is Carabao cup covered by EFL (The league) rules / regs?

It tends to be the way with signings that they have signed the day before on some instances before the club announce it.

I have known a few signings that have been made and the player has done a day or two of full training with the team before its even announced they have signed.

As he was thrown straight into the side he must surely have trained with the club for a few days beforehand. If not then Moore has questions to answer

Acid test will be if he's a starter in any Championship games.

Yes, it was a competition originally suggested by Sir Stanley Rous, a Chairman of the Football League, but was implemented by Alan Hardacre, the then Chairman. It's inaugural season was 1960/61. The Football League then, over the years, morphed into today's EFL as we know it, I believe.

Sorry for the history lesson, I'm guessing you knew that anyway, but it is for those who didn't

Agree with this. Certainly looked a lot more comfortable that Nyom did. Looked to play the ball forward when possible rather than just sideways or backwards.

Splendid tackle on Dawson in the 2nd half too!
