The whole round pegs in round holes quote from Wilder would maybe make me question that. Has Browne played centrally before?

Did he not play either as a striker or off the striker for Oxford in his best spell?

I'll be honest my main takeaway from this pic is it's scary how much Wilder looks like Kieran Scott's Dad

Ronnie strolls out 20 minutes into the first half (there was a long queue at the bar) and settles into his seat. As the half draws to a close, the young foreign lad he's been sent to scout is too busy

Yeah don't believe everything he says. One of the compromises i heard was that the January recruitment was going to be lead and signed off by Scott and not Warnock, if there actually is any incoming/o

I'd file Marcus Browne with Hernandez and Olusanya. He's a wide player that's just not going to suit our shape. Seems a nice guy and all but we may as well move him on if we're not going to use wide attackers.

I dont think Browne is a wide player humpty but think our managers have used him as wide forward in a 4.3.3. He played as a no. 8 and no. 10 for Oxford but that being said I dont think he breaks in to our team under Wilder this season.
 

Best thing imo for Browne come January is to go on loan and get games under his belt after a year out and come back in summer fully match fit. And take it from there.

I was looking at possible left footed CB options and the one that stood out was Ben Davies who on a season loan at Sheff Utd from Liverpool. 

And with whats gone at Sheffield United does anyone think a move for him in Jan on a permanent would be good move.

I understand his signing by lfc has become a bit of a comedy moment but he was very highly regarded at Preston and did have lower end PL clubs looking at him and from what I can tell is doing a solid job at Sheff Utd too.

I would expect that he is possibly on higher wages than most championship clubs would be willing to pay on a permanent basis @TLF10. Liverpool bought him from Preston when they were going through a defensive crisis so I would imagine that he commanded top dollar knowing he would not get a look in when the injured players returned.

All I heard about Davies at Sheffield United was pretty bad to be honest. Seemed solid enough at Preston but would probably be quite expensive to buy. I reckon they've probably paid a decent fee to bring him in on loan anyway which means Liverpool almost certainly won't be able to recall him.

@Blanco and @wilsoncgp based on what you said I will cross Ben Davies off my list of targets. I still have nightmares about the last CB we got from Preston. Sean … i! I cant even bring myself to say his name.

It’s alright for you @TLF10 I had to watch him play for Ireland as well 😂

I stand corrected. Having said that, I still don’t see where he fits into this team. Maybe as a Tav-lite?

Well Wilder played 3-4-1-2 in the Championship with Duffy as his number 10, Browne could definitely play that role.

I've only seen him playing for Wales and he seems solid enough when he has played. Be decent in the championship with us for example. But his wages would be a problem. 

Ah sorry i was referring to Ben Davies of ex preston who LFC signed last Jan. You are referring to the spurs left back/3rd centre back who are spurs regular. We have no chance with him

    • I think United have been trying to use Henderson when they can since Sheffield United last loaned him, don't think there was a plan for him to be loaned out.
    • Ah i see. I thought he was bought in as it was anticipated Henderson might be loaned out. They still got Lee Grant i think who 4th choice there. 
    • Hartlepool, Harrogate, Newcastle or Leeds please. (Away)  
    • words rarely seen in same sentence.            Joey Barton is innocent..  or not guilty. Obviously Barnsley manager dived despite testimony of eyewitness 
    • It’s clear Wilder plans on a long term stay at Boro. He has a “free hit” this season, as expectations are not sky high. We have limited money available and moving players on may not be easy as supposedly we pay more that a lot of clubs (maybe to get players to the north-east?). All of the above suggests to me, he will only sign players in January who are exactly what he wants and that if he can’t find them he will be prepared to wait until the summer rather than settle for something second best. That being the case we might not see as much movement as is hoped. The departures might be limited to those who definitely can’t  fit into the style and those with longer term contracts where we might as well take the hit now as later, but in each case only where we can find the right replacement and we get the right saving (either in transfer fee or in cutting wage bill). Incomings might be one or two permanents, plus loans from Premier League where we have no long term commitment or huge cost In terms of possible departures, Hall fits into the first category and if we can’t find an experienced replacement, Wilder might be planning to use Wood to give him experience and see if he can step up. Uche fits into both categories and if we can get some of our money back, I think he will be on the road. With Hernandez and JLS, it depends on whether there are any recall clauses allowing us to end the loan in January. I would doubt it - and both can do as squad members until end of season, so I am a bit doubtful they will be on the way. Stoj ends his contract at the end of the season and he may be able to find another club to take on his wages. If he does, then maybe one of Hemmings or Brynn will be recalled as third keeper. In terms of quality I think they would be fine, although in many ways they would be better getting first team experience where they are. Although I am not a fan of either Daniels or Lumley, again I think our wage commitment to them may prevent either leaving - unless we can and want to loan an equivalent of Dean Henderson ( as he was when SU loaned him). If Wilder can get his ball playing centre half, then Dijksteel can cover RWB and I would leave Spence to get the experience at Forest. yes, it helps them, but it may be beneficial in long term either in his development and attitude or in raising his value. So for me, OUT - Hall, Uche, Stoj and Browne and Coburn on loan. IN - good centre half and a couple of forwards, maybe one on loan. Also either Taylor or another left back for the rest of the season. Any other incomings only where we get a bargain or cut out other clubs ( e.g. where a player will be out of contract in summer and we would end up in a bidding war)
