Don't know why people are criticising this, it's a trial.

Anyone heard of Chris Samba before we signed him? Thought not.
How about Rudy Gestede for that matter? I doubt many will have heard of Jordan Rhodes, Tommy Spurr, Thomas Cairney before they signed either.

If there's one thing Bowyer's got an eye for its a bargain buy, give the lad a chance to shine. We've needed a replacement for Robbo for a long time!

The replacements we've had for Robbo have been nothing less than a disgrace in all honesty. Bowyer has put his trust in Kean and we've been made to look like a right shambles. And it has to be said that Robbo, while still our best bet between the posts, looks like he's been inflated. Perhaps Bowyer could have had a word during the close season and maybe asked him to go easy on the doughnuts. Hate to say it but I have very little confidence in our back line this season and frankly should we get off to a stinker against Cardiff I can only see things getting worse.

I only wish we were in the division that allowed us to play the likes of Chelsea and Manchester United. Have to say I'm not overly excited at the prospect of Rotherham on a wet and windy Tuesday night are you?

I can't stand the thought of those dirty dingles raking in the Sky TV money and entertaining the likes of Mourinho and Van Gaal. It makes me so angry.

THAT SHOULD BE US!

To be fair Tuesday are quite convenient for me not much on, Mondays used to be a nightmare with the kids swimming and sundays a right pain with the both my lads teams playing on a sunday, and don't het me started about how much easier it is to get served at the bar now, used to be a right palava getting served.

Got some mates who support Burnley their alright to be honest, they enjoy a bit of banter like most of us, so not to worried about them really. Take a chill pill its all going to be ok.

TurdMoor Tampon,

You have won the lottery. You are in the Premier League. Make the most of it. You as well as I know it will only last one season. So glad you are happy to be in a division where getting a draw will be like winning the Champions League. Enjoy. (Won't) see you next year, and you know exactly why.

Don't understand why we are hell bent on trying another keeper. Can only presume GB doesn't fancy the two reserve keepers we have got. In that case he needs to get rid.

Probably because if Robbo's waistline expands much further we'd have to have his kit specially made, and you can imagine how expensive that would be. Cheaper all round to bring in a new keeper.

Ok expert tom how you know he's a no mark? plus can you read it says he's on a trial if you let your brain do thinking you would see that.

Four years in the French equivalent of our League Two. You'd be better off sticking calamity Kean back in the nets.
