Defo can’t be worse on the ball than our current midfield options......if he is then we’ve really outdone ourselves this time.

I wasn't sure on this signing but having just watched Nakamba again for 90 minutes, I'm quite certain he walks into our midfield and improves it.

I don’t think he could have joined another team in the premier league where he would instantly become the best central midfielder available for selection. 

We are absolutely stacked in the central midfield position but not one of them is anywhere near good enough. 

Id be in the market for another if I was Smith. I might even be tempted to prioritise it over another winger.

Not gonna lie, I wasnt ever keen on this transfer.

But...will give him a fair crack, and with the midfield we have he might even do well for us.

Who knows.

I've changed my mind on this, get him in the team straight away! Liuz needs a break to work on his sloppiness. There's a player in there, but he needs time. Hopefully he's another Nyland.

I didn't expect this would be our type of signing with his recent problems off the field and his age (though he's hardly over-the-hill!) however it could turn out to be a masterstroke getting him here.

Hopefully he has learnt from his mistakes and comes here with the motivation and desire to get his career back on track - if he does, he will strengthen our first eleven which is what we need to stay in this league.

The more I think about it, the more I think this could turn out to be another January masterstroke like Mings.

Only a couple of seasons ago, Drinkwater would have been a marquee signing for a newly promoted club, and he has a point to prove. He suits our style much better than he did Burnley’s, and I get the impression Smith has driven this one through, so he’ll have the manager’s backing.

If Drinkwater has any brain cells at all, he’ll know that he has to make a success of this move if he wants to enjoy another few years on big boy wages. Otherwise he’ll begin the slow tumble down the divisions.

Probably our best player in this so far for what it’s worth, but then at fault to some extent for both goals within a few mins. Mixed debut...

Having a mare of a debut so far. Disappointing.

Presumably all that optimism has gone now .. at fault for both goals and so far off the pace he makes Hourihane look speedy

I think the first 20 minutes has summed up the difference on the pitch of being "fit" and "matchfit."

Guy has started 5 premier league games since August 2017. He could hardly get a start at another bottom 6 club.

He'll be match sharp in April.

So, why did we get a player in who won't be useful to us until at least 3 months from now?
