Welcome aboard Kieran. We've needed someone with your good looks every since Ainsworth moved to QPR.
I’m know nothing about this fella, can anyone fill me in?
He’s a left winger who can also play as a left wing-back. He’s athletic, versatile and good on the ball.
I’d expect him to complete with Harry Boyes or possibly further forward on the left of a 3-4-3.
I should have added that he’s two-footed so like Kane Vincent-Young, can play on the other side too.
Here’s what he can do -
Doncaster's best player when they were at the right end of L1 imo, earned himself a move to Rotherham. Haven't kept tabs since then. Can play either side (usually inverted on the left - he's right-footed) or as a 10.
We've tried to buy him before, has scored against us, has had spells in the championship, won the league on loan to Orient last season, by all accounts thoroughly decent chap, 28 , great left peg. Winger / forward, creative type.
Probably exactly what we need. Also not called Uche which seems to be an issue for some, although perhaps not for too much longer.
Thanks all, sounds promising.
He was top scorer for two Irish League clubs and for Doncaster Rovers.
Nice comment, but my wife has already assured me that Low, Leahy and Taffs are hunks, and she is more interested in watching the games now as a result!
So, are we thinking a Gmac replacement/back up?
Also, as someone with a lot of Irish heritage, I would like to congratulate the club on managing to bring in a Kian, a Killian and a Kieran in one window. That shows significant commitment!
Looks like he takes a good free kick and pen too
Looks a good signing and with other League One clubs also said to have been in for him a big well done to Matt and his team
Quality signing - well done to MB & his team getting him in
Blooms and staff have already shown themselves to be excellent recruiters. A really good first summer!
Looks like he enjoys scoring against Bleaterborough too.
You know when you have a good feeling? I've just got a good feeling that with maybe one more addition amd Dale Taylor fit sooner rather than later, this group will click soon and could spring a few surprises.
Why is Rob Couhig KKK trending?
He used to play for them
Great signing, in my opinion
We need strengthening in the wing-back position that seems to be a key role in Bloomfield's formation, hopefully Sadlier can help keep play flowing when play is forced out wide.
Uche 28 years old, striker 47 career goals
Kieran 28 years old winger/ Wing back 56 career goals
He looks pretty OK to me
So where and how do we think we will accommodate him. From descriptions he seems a bit like Leahy.
Hi guys, Bolton fan here just wanting to give you a fans view of Kieran. Most of us were really sorry to see Sads leave because every time he came on he delivered. Very skilful, good with either foot and boy can he shoot so expect goals from him. Don’t mention wing back to him though, he is not a wing back and that’s the reason he left both us and Rotherham. He’s not a defender more predominantly a wide forward player, happy on either flank where he can cut in and shoot from distance. On top of that he’s a thoroughly decent guy and on a free is a cracking signing and I’m hoping now that he doesn’t show all this when we play you later in the season. 😉
Thanks for the insight @FarmerCee. Delighted with the Trotters' start to the season?
Nice to see you again @FarmerCee - thanks for the info!
I would imagine he will have signed with full awareness he will be asked to play wingback given that’s the system we use; unless we are considering moving away from a back 3 / 5.
Although with the club Twitter describing him as a forward, perhaps not. I wonder where he fits.
More likely a second striker / GMac alternative I'd think, not saying GMac is done at all but it's not realistic to expect 100 minutes 38 games a season at his age. Also gives options to go to a 4 and have more width at times.
Wingback it is then.
With Leahy the other wingback, another who apparently moved on at not wanting to play wingback🤣
