Lumley?

The one and only time I'll be itk- Lad fell out with Gardner and bowyer after they got him to sign a new deal with the promise of first team opportunity and they never followed through.  Giv

Thing that’s *** me off with this Tav talk is the disrespect from our fans on social media and forums, more so social media but I have seen comments today like ‘ I will drive him there’ in regards to

After seeing a tiny bit of Boyd Munce I’d assume Wilder wants to turn him into a left footed CB, plays as DM in a 2 for the Birmingham U23’s so unlikely he’s a direct alternative to Tav. Also has the build of a defensive player. 
 

I’d say it’s still likely we’re after McGree to play in Midfield

Howson replacement maybe?

McGree & Balogun in by Reading would be lovely.

Back that up with a left-footed centre back and possibly a CDM to replace Howson or give him a rest.

I think Boyd-Munce is a backup LWB while Bola is out.

I'd imagine he's just a promising U23 player at this point that may make it or may not. I can't imagine they have a plan for him in the first team until he gets his feet under the table.

No nothing. Guess is we might be waiting on some outgoings but being honest i haven't hear anything more on it

Thanks! I'd expect a few outgoings.

Coburn needs to go out on loan.

Ikpeazu needs shifting.

and the loan deals for Siliki & Hernandez need terminating. 

I like Hernandez but he hasn't set the world alight and doesn't suit our system sadly.

Gazette reckon he'll flit between first team and U23s right now. Wouldn't be all too shocked to see him involved tomorrow in some capacity. But yeah, by and large, will not be a starter.

I could be wrong but I think @macapes may have meant a long-term replacement for Howson rather than to take him out of the side immediately, too.

Seen mixed things on Twitter from the Brum fans on the new signing, some seem to rate him and we might have a gem, some think the complete opposite. They mention Kranka was a fan but can't seem to get in the team under Lee Bowyer. Couple of interesting comments on both these tweets.

Should anything be read into him appearing with Wilder in the Photo rather than one of the Youth Team Coaches? 

That to me would indicate that he is seen as more of a first team squad member rather than a young un for the future.

It's likely that he won't make the grade but it's a big upside at a low cost if he does.

Indeed. Assuming we actually have a long term plan, I'd imagine all signings are being looked at as to how they'd fit into how we intend to play - and we do need someone t for that position.

Know nothing about the guy, was just basing it off the mention of him as a DM but the suggestion of moving him to CB.

After reading the Birmingham Forum it sounds like Caolan Boyd-Munce had a falling out with their coach, Craig Gardner, and they told him he can leave. Some seem concerned that it could back to bite them. One fan who watched him in youth team rates him very highly and thinks if it wasn't for personal reasons, he'd be starting for them every week.

He sounds like he's well suited to our system of a left footed, box-to-box midfielder that's full of energy. It'll be interesting to see how he does here. Considering we have handed him a two and a half year deal, official unveiling and are considering him for the first team already, we must rate him relatively highly. Hopefully we have registered him in time to play tomorrow.

Now that we've signed him I'd expect us to loan Marcus Browne out to get game time.

Seems like a decent low risk squad addition to me!

Hope we're going to do something about LWB if Bola is really out until March. That's about 10 league games he'll miss.

One of the twitter responses I just read said that Boyd-Munce can actually play LWB, I know he did briefly for Birmingham for a game or two I think.

    • I honestly believe a full season under Wilder in the LCM role would show everyone just how good he is. I think if you took him out of our midfield you'd see how bad and unbalanced it is. McGree and Crooks won't work because neither of them cover enough ground or do the defensive side of the game.  Howson I love but let's be honest he's not a traditional out and out CDM. He losses the ball too often in bad positions and his positioning for CDM can be quite poor. He brings commitment, energy and workrate though.  For me in midfield we need a LWB, CDM and an RCM. I would drop Crooks to the bench or move him on. I know that he's scored ten goals this season but I believe we can sign players that more suit Wilders system with energy, pressing and intensity. I would keep him for the bench but personally would look to replace him in the starting team. Tavernier was in the Top 10 for both Key Passes and Tackles Won. He was ranked 3rd for passes in the final third. He's expected goals and assists combined for this season was 15. I could see him getting 15-20 goal contributions in a full season under Wilder. He had 10 this season and has shown real signs of improvement. He does a lot more than what people realise for the team.  Tavernier was given corners because he was the only real left-footed option in the team. I do agree though that most of his deliveries were relatively poor considering he's our designated corner kick tacker they didn't look practiced.
    • Wouldn't call it interesting personally (i.e. not sure what there is to draw from it), think it just reinforces the club are happy they moved on from him. I can't remember the last time they did a season long goals montage so I could be wrong but it feels like this alone is a little out of the ordinary and perhaps only put together because Wilder is at the helm. I think the club is just continuing to want to push Wilder and positivity around him, that's how they approached the Season Card campaign too. It's not necessarily wanting to reflect on the season just gone as a whole but more to give an idea of what's to come.
    • I don't think corner taking ability is really something that pushes someone over that £10m threshold. He can be both one of our better corner takers, and still not be a particularly good corner taker, but that really feels like grasping at straws for something to still criticise him with. 
    • For what it’s worth with Tav, I genuinely think he would flourish as a left wing back, and simplified his game.  Tav travels well with the ball, is energetic and I can’t fault his work ethic at all. He always puts a shift in. But I just think he could use it so much better than he is currently doing from watching him this season. I still think he has some work to do in the final third, which ironically was where we struggled most to break teams down. I just don’t think he’s there yet and I don’t think he does a job which an additional player in midfielder couldn’t do (he’s replaceable).   For a player who takes corners, you’d expect better delivery on a more consistent basis for him to be worth 10m + which some are quoting on various platforms.    I realise that Tav is very polarised on the opinion poll. Like I say, I don’t hate him and think he’s ‘bad’, he’s just not consistent enough yet to be deemed as integral to how we play in midfield in my view  
    • Maybe if he was Slovenian and not from our academy he'd be the best thing since sliced bread 🤷
