Solid and a better footballer than he's given credit for. Who is identifying targets this summer because they're a lot better than the tripe signed last summer?

Sorry but Etuhu is an abysmal footballer. Use of the ball is terrible.

We already know that he and Murphy can form a good partnership in central midfield. Very good signing if it comes off.

Partnerships in midfield are most important, like strikers and Central defenders, you work together, over the years, Metcalfe/Parkes, Tugay/Savage, Sherwood/Atko etc were great instances of this!!

Trying to remember who played in centre mid with Kendall, McKenzie was in a more advanced role I think? Help!!

Very estabilished Premier League footballer, would be happy with him in the Prem. For the Championship i think he is more than good enough....

Absolutely perfect signing if it comes off. The missing piece of the jigsaw in midfield. He breaks up the play, can put his foot in and very disciplined in his role protecting the back four.

Very impressed.

Mickey Speight in our promotion season, enhanced by the majestic Kevin Arnott later in the season - that is if memory isn't playing tricks on me!

I agree with Patrick. Etuhuu also knows how to tackle unlike any of our midfield last season. Was like watching The Benny Hill Show most of the time.

Danny Murphy is picking his own CM partner? Better than Kean picking it i suppose.

Kean had long left fulham before they signed Etuhu. There is no link as far as I am aware


Hold my hands up on that.
Good to see Kean attracting players! :P

Absolutely perfect signing if it comes off. The missing piece of the jigsaw in midfield. He breaks up the play, can put his foot in and very disciplined in his role protecting the back four.

High praise. Lets hope Dickson plays to your expectations.

Why do we need this bloke when we've just signed the new Gattusso?

Keeping the powder dry until the next transfer window.

Be good for free kicks :-)

I thought he joined after promotion - though could be getting dates muddled. Also was Parkes not playing - before he broke his leg towards end.of season ?

As long as he can break up the opposition play and pass ten yards to another Rovers player, then he'll do for me. I'm afraid the team has declined so far that we're in the same position as when Hughes signed Mokoena. We need to tighten up our back line and having someone sitting in front of them with the sole intention of winning the ball back will be crucial. It was bloody well crucial last year too. The results of not addressing that are painfully obvious.

His use of the ball wasn't outstanding in the Premier League but he worked well with Murphy who was always good at finding space to receive a pass....if he's good enough for the Prem, he's good enough for the C'ship.

Anyway he is a defensive midfielder so I'm more concerned with whether or not he can put a tackle in.....as long as he isn't absolutely terrible at passing which Etuhu is not.
