    Why can the club not be first out with the news and not let the rags get the jump on it ?

    No chance Jeannie.

    It'll be the old "I signed off on it" situation, but they aren't players he has scouted/earmarked/wanted for his squad. Hart and McCarthy are players we have chassed for years, waiting for the right time to get them on a free/cheap and make it look like we swim with the big boys making EPL signings.
    It is what it is.

    But to be honest, we need bodies in badly, that I will accept these sort of deals because they clearly are an improvement on some of the players we currently have. But they aren't great investment, nor the best players we could realistically attain.

    Welcome James!

    Of course they aren’t. In the same way Carlton Cole, Kazim-Richards and all the other has-beens we have ever signed aren’t.
    I’ve no idea why our board make these signings…. Shirt sales? TV money? Our name in the English press? Christ knows.

    The club aren't going to announce it until they have dotted the i's and crossed the t's....everyone else wants to beat each other breaking the news.

    They’ll have been brought up as options I’d imagine and Ange has probably ok’d them.

    2 signings of decent pedigree on paper and hard to turn down when our squad is in the state it is.

    That feeling of being underwhelmed remains. It's really hard to feel positive about things just now as we seem to have this hodgepodge of a team. It's hard to see how they can all work.

    Over the moon with this, tbh. Still only 30. Played 33 games in the EPL season before last.

    Him and Hart will bring some much, much needed character to this squad.

    Dunno if he's been the same since the leg break but if he gets back to his best he could be some signing.
