From the YouTube -

Takes a great penalty
Quite small but decent with his head
Good finisher

Not convinced he has all the tools to move up though, as stated not particularly athletic

But good to get another through the door

Dick Habbin's hairdo wrote:Must admit having gone to play off final (mates who are Cov fans and eldest spawn at Exeter so have seen them a couple of times, too) and the comment about McNulty not being an athlete seems spot on. Lots of hustle and bustle and good runs but he's a midget and, shall we say, he has a low Centre of gravity.


Well 5'10" is hardly Sammy Igoe is it? With a bit of discipline why couldn't his fitness levels improve - if they need to? Hardly remember Curo or ALFie beinf particularly "athletic", whatever that means?

As an aside, I'll be trundling down the road to Bishop's Stortford this season to see how the legend that is Curo is getting on, and will report back.

Presume he’ll debut in the friendly with Fulham next week

Not entirely bothered about his perceived lack of athleticism. Presume that means he doesn’t chase about all over the place and isn’t especially pacey but as has been pointed out the same can also be said of Alf and Curo and that didn’t stop them from banging them in at this level.

Now if the club could bring in the proverbial “marquee” signing this summer then I don’t think it’ll have been too bad a transfer window.

Step up in defending quality is likely to be difficult for him and I can see him getting bullied by some of the bigger meaner CBs. That's an impressive pen taking ability from quite a long quick run up, and not all at the same spot either.

Good range of finishes, not the quickest but seems able to run the shoulder, finds space in the box, gets on the end of crosses, long shots and some clever cute finishes. Good at winning pens.

He seems the complete striker, just question marks over whether he's good enough to cope at this level (otherwise he'd be 10 times the price).

Very pleased with this. Gives us an alternative to Bod and an option to partner him in the big hard worker - small fox in box mold too.

Yiadom, Meyler and McNulty are very positive signings. Not spectacular, not designing to win us the league. But to give us a platform to get us up the table and build on from there. Suggests there's a realistic, pragmatic plan and appreciation of where we are

I am really pleased with this signing.

I saw him play in a couple of games last season and he was a class apart from the other players and I believe that he will easily make the step up.

He just needs PC to keep him confident.

Have you been drinking Ian? You are talking sense this morning. Fully agreed with the above. I wonder whether there will be another striker brought in or possibly a CAM? If there is to be a marquis signing and we get to keep hold of Moore it will be a good transfer window.

Nope, same me as always, you just happen to agree.

From a quick scan through the Cov site, seems he likes a big partner up front to play off

They seem pretty gutted which is obvs a good sign

Think we still need a Hugill type to come in on loan or perm, then would be pretty happy for the season to start

Oh and obligatory post to annoy John Smith... hopefully he can forge a strong partnership with Novakovich next season.

We've signed two players who specialise in relegation, a Barnsley player who got relegated last season and a player with potential so far.

Things are looking up!

Noel hunt style player, someone to break up play and hold the ball up. Tbf it’s why Alfie and long did so well.

Anyone else think he has a bit of the Cureton look about him?

No, his shirt doesn't reach to his knees. So, no. :-)

Yes you can question the level he's played at and whether he can cope with the physicality of The Championship but he seems to have sound technique and an eye for a chance so the raw attributes are there, be it picking his spot from the edge of the area or poaching in the 6yd box. We've just got to create chances for him.
