The comments from Gregg Broughton have been refreshing this summer, honesty about what the club are looking for and why the signings fit.
Rovers’ Director of Football, Gregg Broughton, said: “We identified that we needed to add both athleticism and another goal threat to the squad, and Sammie gives us both of these qualities.

“When he was played centrally for the final 10 Championship games of last season, we saw Sammie recreate his form from League One, with four goals and an assist, along with both the creative and physical metrics of an attacking midfielder who will add a different dimension to our group.

“As importantly, we know what Sammie will bring as a character and how easily he will fit into the great team spirit and mentality of our players.”

I wonder if he will be playing in that front 4 or if he's going to be sitting as a center mid. Could cause a bit of a tactical shake up too.

I'm intrigued by him none the less.

This is a cracking signing and agree about how refreshing it is to hear anything GB says when it's come to recruitment and confirmed signings. Likewise how JDT has spoken pre and post match about matters on the pitch.

Szmodics offers some versatility across the front supporting our strikers, I guess quite similar in terms of Dack positionally. But if Buckley cements his position alongside Trav then there is an obvious spot for Szmodics infront of those two.

If we can just get in a CB then it'll have been a really positive transfer window despite the doom and gloom circulating a few weeks ago.

How do you pronounce this fella's surname? When I see something begin "SZM" I kinda think the letters aren't going to be as much help as they should be...

Based off a couple of highlight vids from the Swansea game, the commentators pronounce it like "Shmod-icks"
