    Doesnt sit well with me this guy isnt fit halfway through September, is there a reason why he never had a pre season? Was he injured, is it timing ? Could he not not have kept himself fit during the summer?
    To me he should've atleast been on the bench last week and ready to start this week.

    It's a disgrace that a player can't keep themselves fit if not doing a pre season with their club. I also blame the club for taking too long to sign him when he could have done a pre season with us.

    To have a player that played a whole season last season then to be unfit during a summer break is ridiculous, he must be injured if not then whoever recruited him didn’t do his proper assessment.

    the board we have are incompetent or half the crap is deliberate I just don’t see how we can make so many mistakes
    not just last seasons issues but, the new CEO lasting 8 weeks then being forced out because he ruffled their feathers there needs to be change some serious change is called for Bankier needs gone, Lawell needs all ties cut no side job or connection whatsoever and I hope the City Group buy DD out I’d rather have them than the club being run on the whims of an individual at least we can afford better players

    Aye somewhat * baffling how he isn't remotely fit.

    When did his former club go back to preseason?
    Vvv were 4 games in to their season when we signed him

    Just what the * was he doing during August, if not playing matches for them?

    Knowing we was chasing him for over a month and that our board are absolute * with transfers, I wouldn't be remotely surprised if we had already signed him a month before and refused to announce it, just to see out the window as if we was doing continued buying.

    Useless * club so we are.

    Sign a guy who's no kicked a ball since may! * useless.

    Think some need to take a chill pill on this guy :56:

    We signed him knowing full well he’d take a few weeks to get up to speed and for a bargain price because his club were relegated.

    It’s not his fault we’re thin on the ground with injuries.

    Which inturn goes to show how poor our signing network is. Especially for a deadline day signing.

    To me it shows an attitude issue if he is not fit enough despite that he was angling for a move to bigger club, it's not a good was to start. I'm not writing him off before I've even him but we've had enough of players that are not fit enough, there really isn't an excuse for not being fit enough when your job is to play football.

    I'm more annoyed at our club than him though, at that stage of the window we shouldn't be ending up with players that are not ready, especially when it was a replacement for another in an already thin area of the pitch.

    Lots of players don't get a decent preseason when they are on the cusp of a move, it's not the same as training by yourself.. It's better to be a bit cautious with him so he has a chance of hitting the ground running..

    Hopefully he will turn out to be a bargain for the club and I get the frustration around the length of time it took to get him in the door, but sometimes it's better waiting than paying over the odds for a player. The frustration comes when we wait too long and don't get the player in.

    He's here now and we'll see him soon enough.

    Yeah think a good few seasons we have rushed new signings and they have picked up injurie , happy to give ajeti a chance but dont see why the greek couldnt at least be on the bench , if ajeti gets injured early on then we are really atruggling

    Ajeti is made of pure steel. He's no picking up any knocks.

    Can he not even sit on the bench? What back up will we have for Ajeti this evening if he pulls a muscle or gets tired?

    He played one game for Greece in the qualifiers, so he can't be that unfit.

    Most likely due to other stuff, like getting his family over and getting settled.

    Surely fit enough to sit on a bench as backup for 15 minutes at the end of a game.
