Yes!! This lad is class, and a really likeable and modest guy. I was so impressed with him in pre-season and I'm delighted he's got through the injury and earned his deal. I hope after a month or two with Boro he will come back and slot nicely into the team.

The purse strings have well and truly been slashed.

Totally agree. I think these young lads are great but a season in NLS would do them wonders. Also wonder if Akanbi might go.

Looks to have quick feet and be a decent size going off the highlights.

All these signings seem to be players lined up by Danny Searle. (Ndjoli & Fawole played pre-season & Wagstaff was obviously lined up in the summer because he remained a free agent and we’d kept the No.4 shirt free).

Why didn’t the board allow them to be signed in pre-season so that we started with Searle’s full squad, rather than wait until a quarter of the season was over & we were in the bottom three before getting the real full squad signed up.

I’m pissed that we didn’t start the season with our actual full squad, as it looks a good set of players & we could have been in the top half of the table now.

Maybe the reason we have been unable to bring them all in sooner is financial now that we have funds coming in regularly there is a bit more wriggle room to bring players in .This will hopefully give MM the options and depth the squad needs to push us upwards
Defo feels more positive

He's up against piss poor players in US college football.
It will be a different ball game in UK, so let's see if he can do it in the Southern League first shall we.

If that’s the case why wasn’t Searle given the time to bring them in and then use a full squad. I wonder how feels sitting at home after being told there’s no budget only to see MM make loads of signings, unless they’re all playing for free of course.

I very much suspect the some board members have dug into their own pockets to support the signings.
If I was a board member I would have no confidence doing that with Searle there, now he has gone the confidence factor has come back and therefore the investment? Just an idea.....
