    On paper that looks good to me. Well done all, although I’m sure there will be the.... “an underwhelming signing” group.

    Good signing on paper, plenty of championship experience but that hasn't always worked for us previously

    Now let's get another striker and a winger, unless we intend to move Jones out wide?

    Bout time we had a “battler” unafraid of making a strong tackle or two.

    Looks to me like we will be playing wing backs - Seedorf brought in as a short term option if there is a need for wingers.

    We need a GK and a ST now.

    Jesus, a thread that's gone more than 10 minutes without a negative/anti Rahic comment. Good signing, probably better than getting Guy back on loan.

    Absolutely, if he's half as good as Nigel Pepper he'll do for me

    The ones that stand out for me are mark yeates and Paul Anderson, both played plenty in the championship but didn't impress at all imo

    decent signing, much preferable to getting Callum Guy back.

    On paper, probably our best signing so far. Good signing.

    Our summer signings seem better than last year's on paper. More needed, but pretty happy with the business we've done so far.

    Need more quality up front though. And still some dead wood to shift out

    Great signing.
    Article says that he turned down a new contract with Burton to sign for us. Just proves that we aren’t paying magic beans as some posters suggest
