As much as it is the red Echo, it seems Kirkbride does still occasionally get a bit of information.
This is a brilliant signing, by any criteria. Even if he fails miserably, he'd be worth more than double what we paid. If he scores 10 by Christmas he'll be worth £30m+. And that's just the financial strength of the deal.
Hopefully, looking at the playing side, we've acquired a very exciting player who is capable of scoring goals at the top level now, with room for development, and someone who can play a number of forward positions.
Even the RS knobheads are acknowledging that this is 'an annoyingly good signing'.
