I'm always suspicious of a player whose name rhymes with nothing.

Looks like Mate Dugandzic would muscle him off the ball

29 years old. Only two senior clubs as far as I can see - Dijon and Sochaux. Last season 29 matches, 5 goals, 5 assists. Has played mostly in Ligue 2 (as per Harry Novillo).

Would think he's just a visa player, not a marquee.

Does the club always disclose weather or not a player is a “Marquee” 

Normally yes I believe, so I don't think he's the marquee.

29yr old exciting attacking midfielder from French Ligue 1.

Fuk this club and its ambitionless attitude.. ..  

His last (and only) season in Ligue 1 was 2011-12. So he’s been playing second division for the past 6 seasons.

Yep. What were we thinking hey? We should be targeting Cavani or Neymar who is reportedly unhappy.

Meanwhile Victory signing Toivonen. This club for fuck sake. 

And you've probably never heard of either of them, but hey, why not jump on here and have another dig...

This will never happen sadly.

Still being a part of City gives our friend the opportunity to wear one of his 30 olympiacos kits in public without looking like a total penis.

He couldn't wear them at Victory games unless he is a total moron.

Ummm, well actually come to think of it....

Historically French players have served us well and wearing the #27 can only mean he is a decent level.

Welcome aboard florence berenbauer.

Interesting to see that last season was one of the best in his career. So he would be coming here 'in very good form'

Also the team where he had his best season (13/14) Dijon were one of the better teams in the league. When he was with his last club Sochaux, they were only a mid table team.

Is this lad same position as Ohalloran? Two visas same position? 

Both can play LW and RW. This guy can also play CAM.

I think we'll be seeing alot of rotation this season on the pitch (which is a good thing). Berenguer can play LW/CAM/RW, Vidosic can play LW/CAM/RW/ST, O'Halloran can play LW/RW, Caceras can play LW/CAM/RW, Mcgree can play CM/CAM.

Actually this is quite a stranger signing, I hope he does get played on the wing unless hes a gun CAM.

Here are the positions he played last season:

So is the world still ending?

-----------
@Inchcolm, O'Halloran drops further down the pecking order

Looks like he probably wondering why he was signed and why he went half way round the world to sit on the bench. He probably regrets not signing for  an SPFL team. With a little luck he may return to St Johnstone in January as he is surplus to requirements. 😎

He'll get gametime. But if he isnt a hard trainer though, then expect not to see him

I know he will it was said sarcastically. I do know he was the best in training and fittest at St Johnstone. In an interview on St Johnstone TV it was stated he always did extra. So do not see training as a problem.
