Has anyone tried giving him toffee as an incentive to score goals? :idea:

I really like Danny Graham - he was (and maybe still is) at least as good a player as Rudy was, and has performed at a higher level.

Hard to be excited to be honest. Especially if we are listening to offers of over 12m for Rhodes. If we do sell I think we need a pacey striker.

Unless we've got him to be the foil for Rhodes and we aren't selling.

Well, if he works out he'll probably be available on a free in the summer. His contract runs out, and he's delighted to have left Sunderland.
Graham: "For me to get out of Sunderland and have a fresh challenge is superb for me, so I’m delighted to get it done."

This really can only be seen as a very good signing.

His time at Sunderland has clearly been a disaster, prior to that he was a very decent striker. My only slight issue is that for me he is a very similar striker to Rhodes. Same height, neither are particularly quick, not target men, but good finishers in the box.

The worry would be that he is a replacement for Rhodes, although I still can't see who is going to buy him at the price we want. Or they won't compliment each other on the pitch when playing together, as they both want to be in the box to score. But that could be total bollocks :lol:

A bit of an underwhelming signing, but on the plus side he's got to be better than Chris Brown
