    Greg Halford - Signing confirmed

    Re: greg halford

    Played under Warnock last season presumably. Certainly fits the versatile criteria.

    Done, according to this - 100K.

    Bit of a hard-knock in his day but certainly a solid pro and the kind you appreciate when a fight is on. He's 32 now and 5 or 6 years ago would have been a good acquisition but at least Warnock knows what he's getting and presumably is not looking beyond guaranteeing Championship football next season. Chosen to stiffen up a few backbones at CCS.

    I'll trust Warnock on this one. He worked with him last season so will know his attitude and his ability. I'm thinking Warnock is bringing in one or two players that won't cost much but will be chasing one or two with bigger fee's to

    That's how i feel about it. With Slade i always felt he was taking a punt built on guess work more than anything else but Warnock has tried and tested methods and he spoke very highly of Halford in his Q&A night in Ponty. I think Warnock will want Halford to be his eyes and ears like a shaun derry, clint hill type.

    Not a bad goal scoring record for a defender.

    100 K is nothing money, would think he will not e on massive wages either

    a player to have on the bench to cover a few positions

    its a low risk purchase

    People were saying they'd be happy for noone to go for 300k.

    The firesale has made people lose there heads on what players are worth. They'll accept anything as if it's monopoly money.

    Agree. I can't understand why we signed him. He plays right back and we've already gig Peltier and Richards as cover. He's old and past his best , and he plays fir Rotherham. Unless he's just for squad depth I think it's pretty disappointing.

    Although the player must be delighted to be leaving Rotherham.

    From what I understand, he can play pretty much anywhere on the pitch which makes him a handy guy to have on the bench as cover, but I'm not expecting to see him start many games tbh.

    Re: greg halford

    I suspect that Halford has been brought in to play as a defensive midfielder as this is where he played for Warnock at Rotherham last season. Makes sense as it will allow Bamba to revert to his normal centre half position alongside Morrison.

    Looks like he's played everywhere on the pitch except left back and left midfield during his career - he's even trained part time as a goalkeeper during his time at Portsmouth and Sheffield United.

    He can play anywhere and NW speaks very highly of him. He doesn't trust Richards to stay fit, and with him on the bench if there are any injuries, he can slot in easily in any position. Halford isn't going to be a first team regular but Warnock has spoken about how unbalanced the squad is and how he wanted a utility player. I think we'll see a few types of signings to address this the squad balance with a bigger shake up in the summer.

    Halford's had his own problems with injuries in recent years.

    However, as a low cost utility player on an 18 month contract and (I assume) trusted by the manager to be a leader on the pitch and a positive voice in the dressing room, it isn't a risky signing and could turn out to be very astute.

    He's only got a year left on his contract and if Rotherham can afford his wages, I doubt he's breaking the bank here. I think he's a nice option to have on the bench and is pretty risk free, as you say. He's mainly played as a centre half for Rotherham so he might be Manga's replacement. Let's face it, we don't need Manga, Bamba, Morrison and Connolly, and we really can't afford to keep all 4.

    Watch out sonny - he's handy.



    I trust NW to know exactly why he's signed the guy, and what he expects from the signing.

    Welcome Greg.

    Weve signed a defender from Rotherham who is 32. Rotherham are hardly setting the league on fire with their defensive record - so this one is a bit puzzling to be honest. Coming in for cover for Manga I guess who will be away for most of January - if not the rest of the season.

    Seeing as 'our Neil' has worked with him before - he must have something about him.

    Bamba is 32 and he'd been released by his former club. Assuming the transfer fee is minimal or he was a free transfer, given his experience and flexibility and our current position, this seems a very sensible signing.

    Off to the development squad before the end of the month is my guess.

    Thats a relief then. First day in training get him doing solely shooting practice, we might need him to do a Paul Went
