Tav can also cover both wing back roles.

Watmore could probably do a LWB role.

if it does come to this, at least we have options in the forward positions

how long would nis body hold up doing that role. hed be absolutely done and need subbing at half time every game haha

Don’t mind Spence going out and getting a season of game time under his belt, then he can come back in the summer, likely for the new manager to have a look at him. 

LB is still a headscratcher though. I thought we’d keep Jack Robinson around as a CB/LB backup at the very least.

If Digger heard at 5 it was happening that was after Nixon put that tweet out. I don’t see a reason why that transfer would fall through 

Let’s be honest it can’t be happening now. Nothing been said on it for hours.

Last season we lost Bola, Dijksteel, Fry and Hall all for lengthy periods of time.

We must have something lined up.

if that happened again we'd be totally *** this season. paddy peltier bamba in a back 3 would be pretty much only option.


Well yeah, if we lost our first choice back four, all at the same time, we'd have a problem.  Same with every other club in football!

The Gazette are saying they understand that we will utilise the free agent market for a LB. Other than Kean Bryan it's pretty baron, I can't see Neil Taylor he's too slight for Warnock and I can't see us moving for someone with no experience in England.

no one is suggesting he plays there, it's a what if scenario.

And warnock wants us to play 5 at the back more often than not. So two injuries and were down to bamba, who can't play 3 times a week. This is exactly what I said I was worried would happen when we signed bamba and got absolutely blasted for it. 

You do realise the manager is a head coach and not a 1970’s manager, he does not decide definitively who comes in and who leaves right? Stop blaming Warnock for everything you don’t agree with. Blame Gibson, he is the chief, the buck stops there. He deserves credit for the way he has opened the purse strings and keeps us afloat, but equally he carries the can for recruitment and retention.

    • I pulled up the Echo on Fry’s rating and Scott Wilson said that Fry got pulled at half time. Didn’t really offer any additional insight into his reasons for giving a 5/10. I thought Fry was very good albeit his distribution was a little ‘impatient’ at times.
    • Is it not more Fry has told him he cant play there with his performances in the pre season games and cup game on Wednesday? He has been given a decent chunk of minutes to prove aptitude in the role.
    • I think Wilder certainly prefers Lenihan probably because he’s his signing. That’s his prerogative. It all depends on whether the club are happy to let Fry leave. I don’t imagine Fry will be happy sitting on the bench but I don’t imagine Wilder will want to lose, who he see’s as, his back up centre half.
    • He’s definitely gone to ground this season a lot more than he was doing last season. Even when his attacking play tailed off last season I thought he did very well defensively. He didn’t dive in and he was very difficult for any opposition to beat. Not sure why he’s diving in so much this season but hopefully he gets back to how he defended previously.    much like people are calling for a bit of patience with Lenihan after his not great start for us I think Jones deserves that too. Not really sure why some fans dig him out so often. 
    • Wilder as a problem, both Fry and Lenahan can't play left side CB , I think Fry has told him he's not playing there , he's refusing hence the cold shoulder , you can't blame him , his form would dip , and from being one of the better CB in the league to an average one, with less of a chance of a  premiership.move,  Is a move on now.?
