    Fankaty... apologies

    Experience at Swindon, Vitesse, Rotterdam and another signed off the back of Viveash. Sounds like he could be a goodun

    That's Sterling's replacement then. From what Robins says seems he'll be in the first team rather than 'one for the future'.

    His name is Sheik Mohamed Fankaty Dabo.

    At last! We have our own Sheik! Let the good times roll.

    I’d take a veteran old boy as a back up right back to complete the defence now. Someone like Alan Hutton but cheaper

    I'll be asking my parents: 'What were you thinking of when named me as 'Fankaty'?

    Otherwise welcome aboard young sir.

    I like all the rumours by so called people in the no and Robin's always pulls a different rabbit out of the hat.

    Can his song be a TV theme tune? I'm thinking the one to Fankaty Football League.

    Edit: Or Les Dawson's Fankaty Blank.

    That’s the defence done, I’m excited to see the midfield going forward take shape.

    Looks decent from that YouTube video, a much better crosser of the ball than Sterling

    We must be ground sharing in Birmingham.



    If we were still playing at the Ricoh we would have signed player with a proper name.

    Excited by this one. Defence and GK departments as good as done. One more RB and potentially Willis as a huge bonus.

    Shaping up nicely! Bright and another striker would get me believing we could challenge for the title!

    Agree. Think we need left back tho as brown prob be sold
    Also a cm to go with kelly and bayliss. Shipley is not good enough to be 1st backup from what ive seen
