Heard of him but cannot really comment on his ability. he should improve by not playing under Westley any more!

Never heard of him. Looks like a journey man not very inspiring signing but at least it's another body on board .

Welcome aboard Jimmy, if JG knows him then I think we have to accept his judgement, did make me smile that JG thought he would improve the squad, with it's current size he can't really do much else

Very Happy

Stevenage fans really don't seem happy he's left.

The good thing about it is that we have paid a fee. No matter how much it show's we are willing to spend on players JG wants.

Sounds like Dannie Bulman - which is a worry as I'd rather have him signed up.

Relegated with Stevenage implies he was part of a poor squad. He may have been the shining star but they still got relegated and he clearly didn't galvanize those around him there.

Uninspired is my first thought TBH

I thought he played very well against us in March. He showed flare and was most industrious

Looks like a replacement for Mike Jones really more than Bully. I think bully will sign simply because he won't have a lot of offers due to age.

Smith seems to play plenty of games which suggests he is durable but we will have to wait and see. It's going to be one hell of a task forming a team from all the new players ....we are starting from scratch I just hope we don't have a crap start the season or recriminations will start no doubt.

He was a regular for orient over 4 seasons so he has plenty of experience at this level. Didn't seem to work out at Stevenage.

Time will tell how he does, but at least we've started early and got our first signing out of the way.

Cannot expect one man to carry a team!
Sounds a good signing to me, I assume on realistic wages and I hope he is another (younger) Danny Bulman, nothing at all wrong with that. Especially if the real one signs as well.

Didnt work out that badly on a personal level for him at Stevenage didnt he play pretty much every game, and as I said elsehwere he cannot work miracles alone. And a good sign that the Stevenage fans seem upset he has gone?

Now we've signed someone AND paid a fee maybe some of those doubters who were holding back from buying a season ticket should now get on with it. Wink
