"Good now we can discuss it on the message boards, oh wait we can't, some genius decide to do matience work today, without giving paying members advance notice. All the weeks with nothing to discuss, no training or transfer window and you didn't do it. You decide to do matience work the day we sign two players and during pre season, a day before the game. Genius."

"Some fans commenting about proven premiership player for me he's got it all to prove whether the price was between 15-20M I want to see him beating players with skill and pace to get to the byline whipping balls in if I see him when faced with one defender consistently turning back to pass the ball backwards I will not be impressed I hope he is a hit for Kenny because he's class!"

"I'm not really Pro Downing but I hope he proves me wrong in a big way. I remember when KK bought John Barnes and everyone thought he was mad, look at how he turned out, KK knows what he is doing, if Kenny thinks he's right for the job then lets hope he's right. Good luck Mr. Downing"
