Would surprise me if either have signed yet. If the keeper is highly touted then I imagine his agent will not be signing on the dotted line just yet and I'd be surprised if Wallace has also agreed to our limited wages before seeing what else is out there. I'm holding my breath on these two.
Come on you Sooopa ........

For the reasons above i don't think Wallace will have people beating down his agent's door.

That Ryan Nelson and Clint Hill didn't do bad jobs either, despite all sorts of criticism after signing, but before playing.

What does it matter at what level they've played before? Didn't do us much good with Park, did it? Or Bosingwa. It really isn't a good indicator of what to expect.

On the other hand, what everyone seems to have missed is that Wallace has a conviction for a firearms offence, which is the kind of CV content I want to see in our back four.

Not to mention his conviction for breach of the peace, where he allegedly threatened to shoot a club doorman. Got a bit of a temper apparently.

Comes down to the individual player and their approach. We've seen a good number of players at Loftus Road who have played high level but, not really done themselves justice in the Hoops, despite prior reputation.

Perhaps give the players a chance and judge them on what they do in the Hoops?
Great. I'll just get behind the lads and enjoy the game then.

Wallace's 'form' puts him up there with another class LB, Mark Earl Dennis.

Of course it's a good indicator of what to expect. It's no guarantee when players past their best drop down a level for sure but it's clearly relevant to assessing if a player can step up to a standard. Would you be happy with us signing a 30 year old who's never played above conference level?

A full-back that can shoot - could be useful. Ah. Wait a minute. I have read a little bit about the offence. Apparently, it was an airgun.
It's simple. Score more goals than they do.

Perhaps the bloke got upset when Wallace called him a doorman, rather than an admittance and egress supervisor.

In principle, yes I would. Wallace has played above Conference level, of course, so perhaps a better analogy would be Clint Hill or Shaun Derry. Players that were signed because the manager knew them, and was prepared to stake his judgement.

There are a few articles suggesting Wallace is taking a pay cut to join. There are also a lot indicating he's more or less about to sign.

He's out of contract, so I can't see how a pay cut comes into it. Does look like he's going to sign though.

The difference surely is that Hill and Derry were vastly experienced at Championship level when we signed them. There was a question mark around their age, but not their ability to play at this level.
