    Just ask a daft question, Wiki says he is a midfielder, the BBC write up says he is a forward, I'm sure some where recently I read he was a winger, what position will he play for us and who will he replace?

    I'm glad we've got him, at £1m he looks to be a snip and he is an LJ old boy.

    Pretty sure he's a winger, but not sure if right or left.

    Hopefully he feels he has a point to prove after Norwich.

    last season at Norwich plyd 182 mins scored 1 assisted 1 !
    at Barnsley scored 15 in 76 appearances
    City paid between £1 and £1.5m for a player Norwich snapped up on a free a year ago!

    Can’t say I’m overwhelmed , it certainly isn’t a marquee signing , I’m not really sure what position he plays , is he a winger , striker , or midfielder.?

    At least LJ has worked with him before so he should have a knowledge of his strengths and weaknesses and should know he’ll fit in, unlike our recent attempts at bringing new players into the group.

    The Norwich fans are happy he's gone.
    Don't suppose it's good news for £1.8million Eliasson either.

    The only way any player , Ellison included, is going to have a chance is to be played regularly and supported by his manager , an odd game in and out is never going to work , give him a run of games before judging him

    Eliasson (like Engvall) is stil young this may give him a chance to go out on loan to get game time and aid his development

    Looking at the Norwich board their fans seem pleased to get rid of him on the whole.
    I hope they are as misguided as the Leeds fans were with Matt Smith or our own fans re: Chris Wood.
    Time will tell.

    I get the impression that some are knocking this purchase before he’s started.

    Was class at Barnsley and rubbish at Norwich.
    Let’s give the guy and chance before we knock him.
    Could be a excellent bit of business:emoticon-0148-yes:
