CONFIRMED - Royston Drenthe

by leww_rfc » 13 Jun 2013 14:46

Rumours from Holland that Drenthe is to sign a 3 year deal with us.

Can remember him being pretty impressive at Everton.

If true, free transfer due to relegation release clause.

The bloke's a mad man by all accounts. This should be interesting.

Would never have signed under McDermott but him and Bridge certainly signal some intent from Adkins/Zingarevich

Was not expecting that at all! Intent certainly, I thought he was very good at Everton.

OS publish a piece with Anton about the importance of "signing the right players", an hour later we have supposedly signed a complete nutjob.

Boooooooooooo. Drenthe out. 0% win record with him in the side and has apparently made no friends in the squad.

Don't care if he's mental, he's class. Would've been a great signing in the Prem, let alone the Champ. Really hope this is true

Not saying that I wouldn't want him though. Very pleased if true.

I met an old guy in Windsor called Royston once. He had the most incredible hair.

Signing a 'Royston' is a massive step up from Brian's and Nigel's.

I like the way the club is heading
