That's right. Oliver Bernard. Free transfer. Left-back.
Thank fuck we don't have to rely on Babayaro.
Souness, being the idiot he is, let him go to Southampton for pittance.
Glad he's back.
quite liked him when he played for Saints. Linked up well with le Saux. Really, really not sure about him now, though. He couldn't get a game at Rangers for anything, and I think Warnock turned down taking him to Sheff Utd. A funny signing, I'd say
and being back at the club will revitalize him. I hope.
Olivier Bernard and Antoine Sibierski!
If Coventry had signed those two I would have been disappointed.
Bridge will arrive in January....
luckily bernard is quite good and at least we have the decency to go back on decisions made by that meatheaded idiot souness.
but every time i read about the toon in the press, it says 'toon fail to sign big player x who will score them lots of goals'. it is a depressing time of toil, hurt and hatred.
God, I hate that guy. He's made sure we won't return to the top 4 any time soon.
you'll be pleased that, as the natural successors to Man Utd, you've signed their 6th choice centre-forward on loan?
I thought we had mastered time travel and signed Paolo Rossi, circa-1980.
no he's not. why do you say that?
he has single-handedly won the game for them. Maybe all cup games but still. And his goal record for the reserves is brilliant.
goal scoring record for ManYoo reserves is pretty bloody exceptional
has made 6 starts for the first team and scored 4 goals.
Which is a very similar record to Michal Owen's Newcastle one.
And a significantly better one than Martin's or Luqe's or Ameobi's.
to fulfill his potential. Since Roeder arrived he has scored a goal every 2 games.
Owen....pah. He'll never be the same player.
Ameobi has been good this season and for the latter part of last.
weren't two of those goals against sunderland?
to be honest with you, rossi looks to me like the sort of player who will spend the first few years of his career looking awesome in the reserves and in the occasional substitute appearance but never do it consistently
He seems better than players like Mellor and Luke Moore but we'll see...
Heavenly. You should of tried to get Pongolle off us he is alright.
