    Fantastic signing, as has been said it’s a shame it’s only 7 days.

    Can emergency loans be extended?

    Should try and sign him for next season when Burge and O’Brien are bombed out.

    Hopefully he’ll stay longer than Colin ‘1 day’ Doyle!

    As somebody earlier said shows how much faith they have in Addai so in the summer it should be bye bye to all three of them.

    Is Burge not out with concussion rather than the flu? If its just for one game why not put Addai in. If he's not up to that then he shouldn't be our keeper on the bench.

    Some of the posts from Brum fans about Stockdale aren't very complimentary. Genuine or has he upset them somehow? Things like he's no chance of ever playing for them and that he has a bad attitude in games, doesn't put any effort in etc.

    Addai is nowhere near...
    When Burge was on the deck for about 5 minutes the other day he weren’t even thinking about getting ready to possibly come on.
    Oggy was having a right go....
    I suppose if he’s on the bench then he should be good enough but this speaks volumes doesn’t it...

    There was more chance of Oggy getting on than Addai

    Don't know how recent it is but in the pic on the ccfc website he has a right belly on him.

    I wonder if he trained with the squad today, could be a few communication errors with the defence tomorrow...

    I did a quick bit of research. It looks like Harry Redknapp signed him on a 3 year deal which he is only half way through.

    Current BCFC manager Garry Monk didn't like him and brought in Lee Camp, won't play Stockdale and wants him out.

    I suppose if birmingham will pay part of his salary he might come here but it looks like he is sticking it out for the duration of his nice sweet contract.

    He was wank when I saw him playing for Darlington numerous times against Dale back in the day. In fairness it looks like he's improved quite a lot since then :playful:

    I'm guessing it has to be short term for it to be classed as 'emergency'? Shame it could happen before the window closed

    Corry Addai is 21 ffs! Now a regular on the first team bench, who might be needed any game after a couple of minutes, a product from our successful Acadamy if he isn’t ready now for a mid table third division team when will he be ?

    There have to be concerns abt his level of fitness after being out of the picture at St Andrews for so long.
    He looks very ‘chunky’ in the only photo I’ve seen of him in a Bham kit.

    That said he does seem to be a pretty decent bloke judging by his twitter activity

    Come the summer I hope we can get a solid keeper in their 30s and one or two kids with potential in. And maybe a new GK coach :p

    Neville Southall was never the most streamlined goalkeeper but was still an absolute cat.

    The problem with this website,well any website for that matter, is it is little more than an echo chamber someone might not even be a Cov fan posts Addai as an example is shit that’s it, unless he proves different. I’ve posted this example before years ago we were, again, fighting relegation and with just a few games to go regular goalie Jim Blythe got injured and in came teenager Les Sealey, fans kept off his back no social media in those day, gave him a chance and the kid did great and we stayed up and that was top division football not third division. Sealey as you know became a very good keeper for years but our then manager Gordon Milne showed the confidence in him. As said Addai has been on the bench now for weeks and could be needed any game after a couple of minutes, I’ve never seen him play I doubt many on here have Robins has everyday and if he hasn’t the confidence to put him in if Burge is injured then he should have signed a goalkeeper in January if only on loan, poor team and man management in my book.

    In January Robins had Burge and Addai with O'Brien injured. He is not Nostradamus.
    In saying it is poor management, do you know if he had a budget to get someone in? This is an emergency loan remember.
    Also you are assuming Stockdale will play, Addai might have the confidence of the manager and Stockdale does have the stomach of pub player suitable for the bench perhaps?

    Tbh Addai has to look at himself
    He has all the attributes to be a keeper in 2019, very tall and a good 'footballer' you only have to watch him in the warm ups
    He should be staying behind every session working on his weaknesses
    But he's off as soon as the main sessions finish
    He's a good lad but won't go much further unless he changes his attitude
