Signing to be announced this week. The work permit is almost granted but due to the bank holiday it might be delayed until later in the week. He'll be training with the club now though and desperate to get kick started.

Are you allowed to work (train) without a work permit?

Na I’m not buying that. If he got injured training for us before he’d signed then he’s be screwed. 

I'm sure we'd be keen on him getting up to speed as soon as possible considering he's been without a team since the end of last season. If we can get him doing some fitness work etc before his permit gives through then it will mean we have to wait less time before we can get him on the pitch.

You've just described every player who has ever went on trial at a club. We obviously have assurances that he will have his work permit or I doubt he would be flying in today.

I have to say, the prospect of signing a 6 foot 8 Faroese internationalist striker is fucking tantalising. Much better than just signing some jobbing young boy from the Premiership. All hail big John! 

Nickname and song required.

The lad is 6ft 8 and nicknamed the Helicopter. I live for this type of signing. 

Where does that nickname come from? Although if he's 6ft 8 I can probably guess.

Hopefully it's to do with his height, rather than relating to any sort of goal celebration!

Connell scoring, Musonda done up like a kipper for the goal, and a seaside league signing scoring the winner.  Not a good weekend for some.

 

Add a new striker signing and it's a full house.

Hopefully IM is looking at another defender as well because Lang is still a bit away like another month or so I reckon and incase nolan or O’Riordan get injured we can’t risk not bringing in another defender/Centre back

There is literally nothing this guy can't do. We'll have the league won by March. 

Big fan of his long throws. Nothing quite like bringing in a guy who's six foot eight and watching him trebuchet the ball for Aidan Connolly to win in the air. 

Solely because there are some fans at some of those games, it's a more impressive showreel than Blaise Riley-Snow's. I'm ready to be hurt again.

It is so Rovers that our two long throw specialists happen to also be our two centre forwards.

I must say it would be peak Rovers to bring in a (very) tall striker and then use him to long throw balls to our present midgets…

“Big Bad John” is easy…”he stood six foot six and weighed 245”…but he ain’t from New Orleans. Oh, you meant a cheer…

Decent material will endure.

Let us know when you have some, and we’ll opine.

It's a good job I don't live local, your place would be like the Alamo in the morning.

What, a whole lot of dead Mexicans and such? Seems a rather violent response, why don’t we try something civilized?

You can guess your role, as the visitor, you can kickoff.
