    Default Panagiotis Tachtsidis

    Another one coming from Oly with Karim apparently.

    Spent most of his career in Italy and fits the bill of the tall central midfielder AK wanted.

    GBG/karteo?

    Wasn't this the ailment that caused Matty Fryatt to retire?

    This is the guy who spent time in Serie A, I've seen him play a few times and always thought he looked a decent player, like a Poundland Sergio Busquets. I guess they decided to get rid because they got Yaya back?

    Might also explain why Ansarifard hasn't been announced yet.

    Oh, yes he can. In fact it's one of the few things in which he excels. Other than that, he as slow as Bouchalakis, which means that he is sometimes a liability in defence.

    He has been unjustly treated by the club. As I've mentioned before, the big man was furious with the attitude of last season's players and when he was seen partying after a humiliating defeat, EM just told him to find another team, which he failed to do. The reason this was unjust is that on the pitch he was anything but indifferent. He plays passionately and combatively; at one point he broke a rib and refused to be substituted.

    I'm not sure he is the kind of midfielder you need, however.

    exactly this.

    this is a good player. not fast but even better than Bouchalakis with the ball. he is really good in passing and as a deep lying midfielder. he is strong and passionate and can make some perfect passes and change the game.

    if he is keen to come there he can show some skills that you don't have in the team

    If he's as slow as Bouch then there's no point him being here.

    I think we are desperate for somebody with a big passing range for when Gueds isn’t playing. I think that’s been our biggest problem so far this season.

    Plus he’s massive.

    look, he is a better player and more proven than Bouchalakis. He had in the last 3 seasons before coming to us, 35, 25, 26 games in Serie A, playing for Verona, Genoa, Cagliari.

    I’m starting to get a bit twitchy at potentially bringing in two new players who have never played in the championship and need to get up to speed fitness / team wise. That is three this week if you include the right back. Promising early business and now it just seems anyone will do. Yet we still don’t have a proper left back nor a proper replacement for gued. I’m massively in the ‘too early to worry’ camp but we have been stung by signings like this in the past.

    At this stage though it's not like it's a choice between two new players who haven't played in the Championship vs two new players who have. It's two new players who haven't or no one.

    I think this is all a bit like Christmas.

    Hugely looking forward to my presents, then opening them and finding that they are really boring and not at all what I want.

    I just hope that if these lads come here, they perform beyond my wildest dreams and we drive up the league; it will be such a disappointment if, yet again, our 'big' signings turn out to be duds.

    True HP. I hope these lads are the answer but I am a little wary. I’d probably take the striker as we can rotate him and gradually get him up to speed and he also may suit. The midfielder seems like we are trying to shoehorn a non suitable player in to the team. I’d rather work with Yates.

    Yeah I would like to see Yates get some time on the pitch now he hasn't gone on loan but I can also see the need for a bit of vision and passing ability at the base of midfield, I go on about it time and time again but Adam Clayton was the absolute linchpin of Karanka's Boro, linked the defence to the attack and got the counters moving quickly with his passing ability. People have been correctly saying, when we've lined up with Colback and Watson, that there is no link between attack and defence, it's 6 defenders and 4 attackers. We just need someone to shift the ball with a bit more purpose once we get it back, Pep was doing a fine job of it before his injury and the injury clearly showed the need for back-up. The physical presence of him is also a big bonus.

    Well said HP.

    Highly promising as Yates is, those expecting him to get the ball down and ping it all over the pitch are going to be very disappointed. Ryan will (hopefully) get his chance because of his energy and physicality, his goal threat and his aerial presence in both boxes.

    More chance of a Ducati Panigale.

    I just wish we'd sign Greek defenders if that's the route we're going down.

    Strong, no nonsense and uncompromising. We could do with some of that.

    Perhaps Krankie can play with three defensive midfielders now ?...

    I definitely don’t want to see colback and Watson again. This lad may have the passing we need but if he is slow I don’t think you are bringing in the player we want. If we are making do I’d rather make do with what we have and rectify it properly in January.
