Excellent signing, he may not be a giant but Joe Hart will learn a lot from him, and provide a good level of competition I hope this doesnt mean Hart never plays, I do think he will be England keeper one day

Best news of the transfer window. A welcome addition and should see us shore up at the back with more direction.

City seem to be shaping up into a tema that shoudl be in the UEFA cup. With Shay that could well be reality. Good Luck.,

Given is a top class signing for us. Massive experience at Premiership and Intenational levels. Just the right sort of background we need to get the most out of the back line, who have been rudderless in a storm. He'll bring the best out of joe Hart too. Big Joe is a phenomenal prospect and hopefully future England Number 1, but goalies improve all the way into their thirties and we need the real deal right now.

I rate Given highly and Joe Hart should hopefully learn a lot from him. If Kasper sticks around he may do the same and we may find ourselves with three top class Keepers.

probably the best signing of the window......!!!!

Great buy, can't see Kasper staying but Joe will be the main beneficiary from this.
