    They're not without risk But I think it adds stability to the squad and is a much better format than packing the squad out with short term loans.

    Pros and cons, innit. Cons = they might be shit, we might get promoted and need better players and are lumbered with them, and managers don't tend to stay around that long so it hampers a new guy in building his own team. Pros = more stability for us, players are more likely to sign because they have stability, we get a good sale value if they have a stonking season.

    Anyone seen his interview? Tynan wasn’t joking when he said he’s not bright.

    I've seen all 8 of his goals from lasts season, some impressive goals.

    He's a CM who gets in the box late and scores some goals a poacher would be proud of. I'm v happy with this signing!

    He seemed really nervous being in front of a camera. He needs some of Hickman's confidence.

    I posted comment on Sky Blue Talk earlier this season after seeing him play against Man City. He was easily Burtons best player and was the heartbeat of the team. Always looking for the ball. Very impressive until he got tired. After he went off.

    Very positive signing and a proper midfielder.

    Without a top class number 10 I worry we’ll struggle with it. It barely worked last year until Bright came in. Maybe Kastaneer can do it. I wonder if we might try 4-3-3 with Allen, Kelly and Bayliss across the middle? There’s certainly the flexibility to try some variations with the squad put together so far.

    I hate the fact we are signing decent players for once... what’s going on here!

    I suspect there are a few more surprises to come.

    Something odd is going on. But I think it’s something to do with Sisu increasing funding. Maybe just maybe there are giving this one last shot to get us to the Championship and sell on the up.

    We’d need Bayliss and/or Allen to really get forward in a 4-3-3 otherwise our striker would be alone up there like at the beginning of last season.

    Wonder if that Overson fella is in the mix somehow? Popping up like the milk tray man with some goodies.

    I think Bayliss can play there and I think that's what MR will try if Bayliss isn't sold.

    Burton fans seemed pretty pissed off to lose this lad which is a good sign.

    Got to be pleased with this one, right age, good experience, tall lad, as for Bayliss I think he’d make a real good number 10 given the chance.
    Wonder if there’s more to come, been no loans yet, imo still need another striker.

    Last season Bouwe bosma
    This season Jamie Allen
    We've certainly learnt a lesson.
