Hoepfully you're as on the money as you were about Doyle Hayes 😄

I never said Doyle Hayes was a bad player ,I just dont agree with short term deals that mean constant change and putting  our academy players even further down the pecking order .

This guy  may turn out to be ok ,but his stats are very poor for a striker ,and we have Erwin and Dennis in the same mould.

Stats not  very good ,strange signing

I've seen him a few times , and was pretty impressed. I wouldn't class him as a striker , certainly Huddersfield used him wide right on several occasions. He will definitely bring a new dimension as he's quick and direct .

Fair enough but in the context of a diddy club like Saints in 2021 that's a bit of a "flat earth" statement.

Every signing carries a degree of risk. For all we know JDH’s agent may have stipulated the short length of contract rather than the club. Or perhaps JG was not prepared initially to offer him a longer deal at time of signing.

I’m sure JG is monitoring the progress of academy players. The fact we have arguably the youngest midfield in the league is testament to the quality of graduates like Cammy, Ethan bolstered by McGrath and JDH’S.

In fairness the only slightly worrying looking spell in his stats was 2 goals in 49 appearances for Huddersfield. But to put that into context, 27 of those appearances were in the EPL and 22 in the Championship so a pretty high level. 

I remember watching a few games when Huddersfield were going for promotion to the EPL. In games that they were chasing they often brought him on and he would create goals for the strikers. He was a hero of the support at that time !

I can assure you he is a totally different type of player from Jon and KD !

I cannae even begin to imagine LE or KD making 27 appearances in the EPL. 
Whether this guy turns out to be success or not, I think we can safely assume he’s on a different level to those two.

Have we any strikers in the academy that we can reliably throw into the first team at this stage of the season.

Welcome to the Saints, Collin!

I don't know anything about him so will have faith in Jim - club are showing real ambition with Brophy and now a former EPL player signing.

To play at that level he must be able to offer us something positive.

Exciting times - just wish we (the fans) could be at the games in person - everything so remote at the moment.

Can imagine he was on a fare wage playing in the EPL  and with money tight down there offers would have been few. 

I'm guessing it's a short term deal anyone know ?  

Yes.until end of season.

What is the likelihood of the international clearance being received in time for him to be in tomorrow’s squad?

It’s says on the OS that he is not available for tomorrow.

If he’s German he must be good.

That’s how it works isn’t it? 

Hope the players don't need to hide their personal belongings in the dressing room  :rolleyes:
