His decisions brought us Balogun and Connolly, so there's two reasons not to just blindly trust his judgement.

From a limited pool of available players we could afford. I'd seen Connolly for Brighton and thought it would be a great signing, but hindsight is 20/20

International keeper who city bought for ~£6m. You would think he is going to have some ability. 

 

I'm happy, squad is coming together. Now the biggies - strikers.

As poor as Wilder's Striker choices have been his Keeper choice has a far better success rate.

Reports say we beat other championship clubs to signing Steffen, I wonder whether one of those clubs was Burnley who are also probably looking for a GK. Thats a huge compliment to us if Pep is happy for Steffen to come to Middlesbrough. He could have easily linked up with Kompany.

That's a fair point, I guess I just can't get on board with thinking it's a great signing simply because he's coming from a great team. Not saying it's a bad signing, just the jury is out for me.

I wasn't trying to suggest that he's going to be a great addition purely because of his current employer. Ultimately the jury will be out on almost every signing that we make, that's the lottery of the transfer window unfortunately.

That wasn't directed to you in particular, just some of the reaction I've seen on here and elsewhere.

Fans weren’t happy with Darlow, Butland et al. If we can’t get excited over signing Man City’s number two then we may as well give up.

American footy gadge was on talkshite yesterday talking about the keepers.  Lazio and fenyoord, ajax were all interested in him apparently.  He was raving about him and the other lad Turner.  He keeps him out of US team and Arsenal just paid 6m for him, he'll need to be on it to keep his place at Qatar so could be a good move.

A brief read of the comments on there reminded me why I loathe social media.Good signing imo, a settled run of games will do him the world of good. Hopefully there's a purchase option in the contract for when we go up with 101 points.

    • It's not all about goalscorers though, Saturday showed we need at least one player up there who can keep it and link up play 
    • This seems like the transfer window of January 2017 for me. We know what and who we want but we either can’t or wont pay the money or the selling club wont sell and it ends up affecting our outcomes negatively. That window relegated us, clearly this wont. If we were to end up with Akpomb, Forss, Watmore, Hoppe and Muniz, I can see Muniz and maybe Forss scoring but don’t see it as a top 6 strike force. Additionally, I feel our midfield is powderpuff defensively as it stands and as everyone knows, I was worried about Steffen and his ability on crosses, well the jury is out on him for me. That said, it is ridiculously early to judge, people deserve chances. Steffen and Lenihan need to bed in and the midfield will surely be bolstered and we may yet see a wildcard goal scorer come in or one of the current crop defy expectations. 10 games in and the window shut is a fair time to assess how everyone is knitting together. I have complete faith in the manager, less faith that he will be provided with the ammunition he needs and wants.
    • The difference with Pulis was he was trying to make out that was his plan from the outset to wait until the end. although I suspect/hope he was saying it to manage expectations of he want then it’sa very dangerous game to play
    • Personal opinion  Absolutely not. Forest had to get the right people in and one of those was the manager. My point i was trying to make was where’s as a good start is preferable it’s not always essential
    • There's a working version of the article. Can't say I'm against it with how he's played, but you've also got to temper that with the fact it's clearly happening because of our failures in the transfer market.
