If it's McNair, think it would be less of an impact than Saville...and corners might arrive in right place occasionally

I quite like saville. Definitely more potential to be good for us than mcnair in my opinion

Tav - Williams - Howson

that’s the midfield 3 sorted if we can get it over the line 🤞🏼 

With Saville, McNair and Wing in reserve. Malley and Liddle to provide emergency cover too potentially.

*before outgoings. But I can see McNair leaving.

Now Brentford have bought Goode he will turn out to be class. I can't believe we didn't agree £1 million pound when are desperate for a CB. Yet may be forking out X amount of millions to give Gibson a 2nd chance in football!

its in excess of a million with add ons, a fee that could rise to 15 George Friend's

This club should not be being outbid by Brentford FC how far we have fallen my days

In the grand scheme of things, it’s a gamble on Goode with that figure. If it comes off, he’s another bargain buy. But if it doesn’t pan out, he becomes another Dijksteele, where you question the fee paid for a low league player. 
 

I’d personally have given them their price due to needing a CB to come in, but if Gibson is coming back then it doesn’t make sense to spend money on a league 2 player who will play second fiddle. Especially when we need to get bodies in elsewhere. 
 

I’ll be happy we didn’t up our offer for Goode if we get Gibson back AND reinvest that money in areas we actually need addressing. 
 

I was gutted we didn’t get him, but after thinking it through, it’s not as bad as it seems in my opinion.

When has Warnock shown any interested in using Tav in midfield? And when has he played well there?

might happen...might not...I remember people saying that we should have tried harder to sign McEachran when he signed for Brentford..but he never really moved on and hasn't made much of an impression at Birmingham....in a years time, Goode might be getting loaned out to a League One club....or somewhere even more obscure like Lindelof and Maguire....more important things to fret about than that...and if not signing him saves the job of someone else on a lot less pay ...I am glad

He'd played Tav centrally against Sheffield Wednesday didn't he?

In that game Tavernier looked our best player by a country mile.

So we should just pay whatever the selling club wants?

Also I really dont get the attitude that we are somehow superior to Brentford, they finished 3rd in the league last year and will be selling Watkins and maybe Benrahma for millions. They are one of the favourites to go up too

If Ben Gibson wasn't one of our own would people still be happy us chasing a footballer for several transfer windows even though he hasn't played football in nearly two years. 

Yes! Okay he hasn’t played much football over the last 2 season. But there’s not a hope in hells chance that any other player of his stature (touted to be an English international just 2 years ago and played for England at all youth levels), who would be welcomed by pretty much every club in the Championship, and is only 27 years old, would ever actively pursue a move to us had it not been for the fact that he is from Middlesbrough and supports the club. There’s absolutely zero chance that we would currently be able attract a player of his quality otherwise.

Aye that's right.

 

I really like Folarin in particular. Has mega pace and seems to have good positional awareness and intelligence.

Is there anywhere on the MFC website or elsewhere to see how many games he has played for the U23s with goals and assists?  I've been on but I can't see anything obvious.

Transfermarkt is the place to go for that stuff. Its youth football sections are pretty good

True but we're also pretty short in terms of our squad at the moment. It's not like we just need players for the first team right now, in some positions we do just need players, like the wide positions where we're either gonna be putting players out of position or relying on kids, Browne aside. Hall and Fry are our only first team centre backs without relying on Wood (who should probably be going out on loan) and Stubbs.

There's still time to go but like I said, we all thought the same during the Pulis days, he'll sign someone so we'll be okay. Then he packed our team full of centre mids as they were the only ones who wanted to be here.

I'd rather use "Kids" than put our cub in jeopardy again....I think some of them will surprise us

    • How anyone can watch those ŕeplays and claim its a definate penalty is beyond everybody else. It was not a foul.
    • What I will say is I wish we played like we did in the 2nd half all the time because we'd be a far better team. Ball on the floor and use the technical players we have to create spaces and opportunities. Not long ball after long ball to 6ft and under forwards up against giant centre halves!  For me the play offs is a tall order now unless we go on a great run, which with our inconsistency so far this season looks unlikely. However, next season if we can retain the likes of Bolasie, Kebano, NML and add a quality goalkeeper and striker I think we'll have a great chance. 
    • Well... What a ****heap of a day... I don't get to follow much in Lockdown as I spend 7.5 hours online tutoring on saturdays - but having watched back? Jesus Christ. Our play-off hopes are diminishing. If we don't make it, I'll be rooting for Barnsley. The turnaround under Ismaël is nothing short of incredible. They're also the only other viable northern club in contention...
    • Surprised by Quest as last week they were talking about how abuse of refs isn't right. But they has to be something done want some sort of VAR  in the championship as is very much a big spotlight on it. If a ref makes a blunder it can hinder their career like the Blackburn ref he hasn't had a game since.  I don't want VAR to rule of finger nail offsides but if they could see these game defining incidents would be alot less controversy and loss in reputation for the refs. As that ref must be feeling very anxious his decisions been shared all across social media right around the world. If was VAR the spotlight wouldn't be on him he wouldn't be receiving the abuse. Its needed to protect the refs really otherwise spirals out control.  In league 1 or 2 isn't the same like spotlight on it doesn't matter as much.
