Great signing to be fair, just wondering where he will fit in and who the front two pairing will be for you guys now and stuff.

 

If there is any truth in the rumour SSN were broadcasting about Norwich offering him a £30k a week salary, it makes you wonder how much you lot are paying him per week. Scary wages these days in the Championship.

I'll wait and see, I think he is a high profile signing, but to be honest, since his days for Wolves and the first season for Sunderland I haven't seen anything to suggest he still has that ability. And didn't he drop out because of injury? Or am I confusing him with someone else now?

Fletcher could walk into any promotion chasing Championship club quite easily in my opinion tzijlstra. I'm not surprised in the slightest to see Norwich were after him as he definitely fit their mould of player and to be fair it wouldn't have surprised me to see Newcastle have a sniff at their neighbours player.

 

I think the main asset of the player is that he is a threat in the air and he will compliment the likes of Forestieri perfectly with his knock downs.

 

Does this mean Hooper is going to play a more wider role for you guys or maybe in a position behind the front two (which he would probably be suited to based on what I saw of him last year. Alternatively could he be a rotation player? If so, as probably one of, if not the highest earner at the club now...It is a brave and expensive purchase.

Yeah...He has to doesn't he? He is somewhat a boy amongst the men now. He has been a good servant to you lot by the sounds of it but you have just replaced him with a similar style of player however much more prolific.

Reported £35k a week, 4 year contract for a 29 year old, seems like Fletcher has been handed a fantastic opportunity.

 

He should do well for the Owls, this level he should excel.

If Fletcher has a bad start to the season....Neil Warnock is being lined up to come in....

He'll have to get the right boots on as for a while, he's not been able to hit a cows backside with a banjo his strike rate at Sunderland was a goal every 4.08 games, played 94 scored 23 hardly prolific is it.
