Listened to the High Performance Podcast with Sean Dyche on Youtube where he talks about his philosophy and demands of players at Burnley. Its hard to believe there is an issue between him and Gibson considering the latter was thought of as a leader when he was here and it’s what Dyche looks for when signing players (Mentality, background, attitude, mannerisms etc)

Watched that too, thought he came across really well.

I've heard that there was a training ground incident with Ben and then it was decided he was to be removed from the group.

Well now we know why the winger rumours have been so quiet, he has 1 year left but Cardiff will be an absolute nightmare to deal with here the whole league rival premium on top I don't see this done easily at all or cheaply.

If Hoilett signed a new contract when Cardiff got promoted to the PL, he will probably be on far higher wages than we can afford. Plus i would imagine Cardiff will want quite a high fee for him even if he has only got one year of his contract still to run.

I don't think there is much in the story anyway, it is just the Gazette filling pages. The headline says we have identified him as a potential summer signing, all that means is we have written his name down on a list of possible targets.

Surprised this link has too so long to be fair

I love how they refer to warnocks new 1 year contract as 'a long term contract'

Because of his fee (2-4 million would be my ballpark) we'd have to be offering a 3 year deal to him which would take him to his 32nd birthday so not terribly old certainly not in Downing territory.

Listen in the market where League 1 wingers are priced at 2 million getting Junior Hoilett for that kind of price would be good business the problem I see here is Cardiff will be desperate to keep their main creative player outside of silly money. Another one in the can't hurt to try but chances of it happening seem slim to me we paid 6 million for Howson who was entering his final year in this league teams would rather let them walk on a free than sell to a division rival remotely cheaply.

I wouldn't mind Mendez-Laing from Cardiff.

Younger and also only has 1 year left on his contract.

I think this might be happening.

Why, do you know something?

Could be a decent signing, but I think its lazy journalism. Correct me of wrong, but didn't he fall out of favour under warnock at the start of last season? Making most of his appearances from the bench.

    • The true story of Magic Lamp. Herbert Chapman, Huddersfield's most successful manager who was later lured to Arsenal and defined Arsenal as the most successful team of the 1930's. And probably one of the greatest managers of all time. In 1922 Chapman took the team to the final night of the Aladdin Pantomime at the local theatre. After the performance the players were invited backstage to meet the cast. As a memento the players were given the Magic Lamp prop used throughout the production for luck. With the FA Cup looming all the players took to rubbing the Lamp in the dressing room  before each Cup match. Football history was made as Huddersfield recorded their one and only FA Cup win in 1922. Herbert Chapman won two First Division Titles at Huddersfield, before even greater success came at Arsenal. Mr Football himself.

    • I hope Fletcher has a great 2nd half of the season. If he does we should be in the playoffs and he'd have earned a good contract. He's really improved the last couple seasons.
