First player I've seen us sign for a long while who actually looked like he was genuinely pleased! :lol:

Welcome Harry Chapman.

But they all said it was a MASSIVE club?

Anyway Chapman is a young player... on loan....

He's apparently in the last year of his contract, so we shall see. :hyper:

:(

I suppose it's possible we negotiated a possible fee if he performs. We've bought loanees in January before, and the FFP rules in division one at least make it feasible for us.

Lets just see if he can do the business first though. :hyper:

Given that such transfers are always pushed to a tribunal by the purchasing club, I'm guessing the fees set by them are rather good value.

Just looking at the squad numbers - a few surprises there, Samuel is number 9! I thought we seemed to be taking on a fair few forwards.Stokes has either been missed off the list or he's gone -perhaps I missed some info about a transfer or loan.

I don't recollect Stokes getting a start in any of our league matches last year. Whoever signed him?

I was actually asking which Rovers manager signed him!
I see Emnes is still without a club,just wish we could go the extra mile for this player - one of my favs last season. And that goal........................

I think Eth was speculating that Hearts may appoint Coyle.

Or they could be 'lucky' and end up with Steve McClaren instead
