    In theory at least, that should make midfielders the most balanced managers, but no idea if that plays out...

    Makes logical sense.

    Wonder if it's really Garrido that we are really after. Just seen that Olympiakos just terminated the contract of their Croatian left back, milic a few days back. He'll be fitter than Garrido but no idea his defensive ability since his highlight video is him overlapping all the time.

    Interesting isn't it. George Graham was a creative attacking player with bags of flair, yet his Arsenal team were as dour as they come.

    Pretty sure they have to be a free agent before our deadline to be added. Otherwise there's a gaping hole in transfer windows

    If he was coming here they wouldn't terminate his contract, he would have been here on a free on deadline day.

    he was released on 31 January, but I'm sure one of the Greek posters said he was shit or crazy or somat.

    I can't really say that he was shit or crazy, he didn't play enough for me to have an informed opinion. The fact that three managers wanted him out of the team says a lot, however. From the little I saw, he seemed precisely the sort of uninterested mercenary whom you desperately tried to get rid of in this transfer window, so best not get another one.

    What about Guilherme Siqueira. Brazilian, naturalised Italian then Spaniard. Been playing for Valencia and Athletico and currently seeking employment I believe.

    Failing that, there's always Patrice Evra.

    Out-of-contract Spanish defender Javier Garrido is close to a move to English club Nottingham Forest, according to reports.

    The full-back has been without a club since leaving AEK Lanarca at the end of last season while Forest are seeking a left-sided defender since Armand Traore’s departure last month.

    Garrido, 32, started his career at Real Sociedad – where he made just shy of 100 appearances – before joining Manchester City in 2007.

    The left-back then went on to play for Lazio and Norwich City, before a stint with Las Palmas and then joining Cypriot club AEK in 2016.

    You have to wonder just how match fit are these out of contract guys.

    Probably not very match fit. But they'll get match fit and hopefully be handy next season.

    What's odds we give another free agent 32 year old a 2 and half year contract?

    we have signed two veteran players on 2.5 year contracts and one on an end of season deal.
