Jason Scotland: Released by Ipswich last week

The former Trinidad and Tobago striker has agreed terms on a six-month contract and will go straight into David Flitcroft's squad for Tuesday's clash with Millwall at Oakwell.

The 33-year-old had his contract with Ipswich terminated by mutual consent after he was restricted to just one first-team appearance since the appointment of Mick McCarthy as manager in November.

Scotland scored 45 goals in only 90 matches for Swansea before joining Wigan, where he found the net only once in 32 games.

He added 19 goals after joining Ipswich in 2010, and he is now determined to prove he is worthy of a first-team place at Barnsley.

"I'm looking forward to getting back to playing football," Scotland said. "Everyone is really positive here. I'm going to try and bring more goals to this team."

e'll be fine, no problem. If they do get relegated, he's definitely going to ask how anyone could ever have thought that Villa were going to be fine given their problems before he came.

toke though. Hmn. I don't think it was defending that made people dislike Stoke so much as the out and out cheating/nastiness they regularly displayed. That, and they kept buying the odd flair player and then ruining them (Oh! Tuncay, what were you thinking?).

ell that really inspires me with confidence. No point in training, deciding on a coherent formation, or playing players in their best positions, let's just hope we get lucky.
