Another mis-hitter to add to the ranks! LOL

I know I'm in the minority, but I just can't get excited about this.

We've signed a player for 4 months. Nothing more.

Stats wise I had my reservations, but now he's here I'll support him and hope he proves to be a good fit. Wages plus fee probably amounts to close to £5 million (20 x 160k plus loan fee) unless Parish won in a brinkmanship contest, so let's hope he proves he's worth it

Iím with you on this one. Nurse maiding another Chelsea player carrying on injury. Looking at this realistically, Roy never puts someone straight into a team anyway so he is probably going to be available for 3 out of those 4 months.

My bigger concern is we have 4 forwards presumably playing for the same spot on the field. I donít understand how you can possibly keep them happy with that scenario.

Well maybe, but the minutes played/number of games in La Liga indicate he was used either as a sub or subbed; if he got some starts and 90 minutes for us it could be a different story...he said hopefully

A terrific addition.
People appear to be judging him on his short spell with Valencia.But his overall career goal scoring record is very good,and he will surely get the goals to move us away from the relegation dog fight.

If Michy gives us as much as Loftus Cheek did then I won't be complaining.

Spurs were in for him so that suggests he's rated by them anyway.

As for the competition for places, surely that's a good thing ? Are you worried that Ayew, Wickham and Benteke are '' happy '' ? - I'm not. If being happy means being selected then it's in their own hands.

More important, for how we use Batshuayi, is whether Roy is inside the tent on this one. If he's actually going to be used then it may be a good move, but if he's just going to be left on the bench, like Benteke and Wickham, staring at the greensward, whilst Ayew "works hard" for 70 to 90 minutes, then it'll be a guaranteed waste of money

He's played 290 games with 109 starts scoring 112 goals.
Valencia clearly just didn't work out for him, he got 12 goals in 10 games at Dortmund the season before.
Even on loan this is a great signing.

I am happy we signed him but also happy its not permanent as it would be crazy momey when there are better options out there.

At the end of the day we need a goalscorer to make us safe in the league and go far in the FA cup. If we are honest with ourselves, Wickham is probably finished at this level, not many players come back like new after 2 years out. He will be the first to drop from match day squad. Benteke returned to full training 2/3 weeks ago after 5 months out so he wont be ready for a while.

Bats will try his heart out for 6 months to score all he can and get himself a massive perm deal with a bigger club. There is no way will sign him full time. Lets just hope he is fit and ready to go staight into the starting 11 but knowing Roy he wont start him for 2 months until he gets up to speed with his tactics.

More than likely Zaha will get 2/3 game ban so at least that will make waiting for our starting 11 a little more interesting and not the same aul same aul.

We have another 18 months with Roy because he wont be going anywhere before then.

No Iím more concerned that we have two of our own players (not loans) who donít look like playing and whose value is rapidly diminishing whilst we bring in loan players and boost their confidence and value for the benefit of other teams.

Brilliant signing all I hope is that Roy puts him straight in the team and doesn't keep him on the bench for a while like he seems to do with new signings, although I accept it's a bit early to throw him in for tomorrow's game especially as he hasn't trained with us yet but hope to see him start against West Ham.
