    Good to see we sorted the GK issue out nice and early.

    Yeah he will be back up based on the very small amount of games he’s played.

    Seems we like dishing out 3 year contracts these days!

    Didn't Robins want an experienced Goalkeeper? Hopefully they both come good

    He's a bit dishy. Obviously been brought in to replace Tom Davies.

    Markosi is evidently the more established out of the 2. But we’re not going to get x2 good keepers in as a L1 club. But at least we have a full compliment of 3 GKs in the squad now.

    Excellent. Let him and Marosi fight it in preseason and whoever starts in August will deserve it.

    At least we know there’s no chance of Burge coming back

    Just seen rich has updated the other thread, same FIFA rating as burge and O'Brien. Doesn't really mean much but at least our keeper FIFA rating is up.

    I'm just livid we've signed another player. Clearly means we've agreed to sell Bayliss, Hyam, Kelly & Hiwula. FFS.

    Bradford were on a run of hidings plus already relegated/about to be, so hard to judge.

    A keeper can only do so much if his defence has given up.

    Thankfully we are addressing an issue that has haunted us far too many seasons. It's about time.

    Good to see

    Seems like a standard No.2. Around 30 apps in his career. Not great considering he's nearly 27. Had a few loan spells at League One clubs at Wimbledon, Rochdale and obviously Bradford. Pretty uninspiring but can't expect a marquee name when you're bringing in a back up GK. Glad we've addressed this position.

    I guess this is an indicator of the impact Aled Williams is having early-doors as "Head of Goalkeeping".
    There seems to be a Cardiff connection, i think.
    Anyone else think he bears a remarkable similarity to Owen Farrell, especially in the photo with his head tilted and squinting like a simpleton? Oh that he could be as accurate with his kicking, rather than hoofing it into the press box or dugouts!

    Not sure i agree with Esoterica's description of him being "dishy" though! When's he going to grow a silly fluffy beard though?

    Agreed, awful signing. We need goalkeepers with at least a few games top flight experience.

    Either today or yesterday. I wouldn't read too much into it. He probably just isn't fully aware of the situation.

    Surely he would be aware of the situation, im sure in the first few questions his agent would want to know where were playing next season

    Because playing at the ricoh is much more attractive than groundsharing- why he mentions the ricoh in his interview

    And so is staying at Valley Parade, where they are STILL looking at selling 15K+ STs for next season in Div 4!
