Read on the net that Leeds had been watching him.

I’ve a feeling it could be the other way round. Think Crook will be N01 and Shiels the captain.

You could be very well right there.

Thread title may have seemed amusing at the time but not for the young man.

Instead, I extend a very warm welcome and hope he has a happy experience here.

I agree with you as regards the thread title, Peter must be wondering what he's let himself for, let's hope he takes as the "joke" intended.

Welcome Peter I hope you enjoy your experience at BUFC.

Title was meant as a joke - can't deny though our unfortunate history involving tax evasion, brown envelopes, post office safes, horse murderers and benefit cheats. All in the past, but hard to resist an attempt at a pun when the new signing is named Crook.

Apologies if any offence caused, best wishes to Peter and all of our other new signings.

for what it's worth I chuckled, a little tongue in cheek humour doesn't hurt, surely?
At the risk of being shouted down from all sides, this forum needs a chuckle now and again. I'm not getting into the rights and wrongs of individual discussions or opinions, but as last season progressed, although there were many Pilgrims on here, it was far from United. More chuckles please.
He who would valiant be , 'gainst all disaster.
Let him in constancy follow the master.
There's no discouragement shall make him once relent
His first avowed intent, to be a Pilgrim.

I go along with that ,  I would think he has been on the end of much friendly humour related to his name .

I doubt he even slightly gives a shit about anything written about him on here even if he knew it existed, which he probably doesn't.
