Oh yea and Lafferty and Velicka both cost half of what you have paid for Jones - If you got him for 2-3 Million it wouldnt be so bad.

This is a typical Tony Pulis signing, little or no skill but he is a big strong imposing afro-caribbean player who can put himself about ala Trevor Benjamin, Ade Akimbye, John Fashanu. Ideal for the lump it upfield and clatter the opposition style that that typifies Pulis's teams.

A lazy player most of the time, has had about 4 decent games for us. But, with all those long balls raining down on his head every second he will not be able to go missing in games. Stoke have definately overpaid.

I think the comment about Freddy eastwood is pretty laughable. How many goals has he scored in the Premiership again?

I suppose Mike Neal is an Arsenal fan? If you think players like Lawrence, Whelan, Tuncay, Whitehead, Huth, Shawcross and Sorensen are Afro-Caribbean, you need to go back to school son.

It's amazing how such a distinctly average player can supposedly be worth so much money. There are far better strikers than him in the Championship who would cost a fraction of the fee. But as others have said I suppose he fits in with Pulis' style. The only problem is when you're a one trick pony oppo's eventually get the hang of it and then you find out if there's a Plan B.....

I don't think he's even a football fan as he clearly has no idea what he is talking about...

No, just think that TP has a thing for Sunderland players...
