We must be after two keepers.

I have to say, what we're being linked with is extremely underwhelming.

I know it ain't actual signings but they've been ***.

I agree, I know he’s probably destined for the premier league and his wages might be high. But hopefully wilder and the club speak to Sam Johnstone and sound him out.

No he wasn't. Just another random stick to beat Connolly with not based in truth. 

He came back from England and started the next 2 games. As did Connolly. After that, Connolly started one more game all season and balogun started one more game all season.

Both were kept out by sporar and watmore. If you're going to have a go, at least make it based in truth mate.

Hope so would be a quality addition, sure I heard spurs wanted him but apparently there getting Fraser Forster so might clear the path a little.

This St Johnstone keeper must be an improvement on Lumley as he has played every game for years for them. So can't be a clown 

He has a good save percentage like.

Saying that, my nan would be an improvement on Lumley and she's dead. I reckon we might have a job shifting him to be honest. Who in their right mind would watch his blunder reel from this season and take a punt on him?

the main thing as i see it is that its low risk. He's available on a free, with over 260 league appearances and he's coming from st Johnstone, so his wage will most likely be pennies.

seems like a smart type of transfer id like to see the club making.

Give him away to Derby and reduce the compensation by a few 100k.

Backup GK fine. But not as a starter. I'm fed up of us trying to do the GK position on cheap or a loan.

Do it properly or don't bother.

You need a keeper that's here for years. A reliable one who's going to win you 8-10 extra points a season.

We've scrimped and saved in a position that's too important for years. A different keeper every season.

The amount of keepers we're going through is laughable and they'll all been rubbish.

Are you trying to say that Balogun was better? Because he wasn't. Both were not good enough, and Conolly certainly didn't make Balogun look like a better deal.

I haven't seen him play for a while but if his levels are even close to what they used to be he'd be a great player to have at LWB in the Championship. We'd finally have someone who can put a decent set piece in as well. Obviously depends on the costs involved.

Paddy McNair has one of the best deliveries in the league. I'm constantly baffled as to why he doesn't take our set pieces.

Yeah but recent additions have been crap before arriving (archer, Lumley, daniels). Anybody could see they were not going to solve any issues.
Daniels had spent most of his career at league 1 and had only played 17 games in his prior 4 seasons before arriving with us.
lumley had only had 1 full season with QPR before he fell out of favor  with them so i dont on what basis we thought he was a good choice.
Jordan archer was a keeper so poor he was deemed not good enough for millwall and moved to league 1 and scotland and failed to be a starting keeper at either move. So again, didnt take a genius to know he wasnt going to solve our keeping problem.

this guy Clark has been the main keeper for 6 seasons for a St Johnstone's side that been consistently finishing top half in the Scottish prem and helped them win two cups last season, and hes only 29, so in his keeping prime. And im not saying for him to be first choice, but i look at this potential signing in a much better light than i do any of our previous goalkeeper signings.

I'm hoping that if he moves into midfield they'll stick him on more set pieces.

The only thing i can think of is that we lack a bit of height, so any height we do have is best utilised in the box. Seems a bit couter productive to me though, if the quality of the set piece isn't quite up to scratch anyway. I'm intrigued to see how he'll be used next season.

Since you've asked yes I think Balogun was better. 

But that's comparing an absolutely terrible signing to a bad signing. Pretty sure the stats back that up too.

I think that has to be the reason. He did score fron a corner at least once last season so I assume they want him in the box as an active threat.

    • What's been ignored in all of this transfer noise is , a striker scored on his debut ,  COB
    • Found a Dutch defensive midfielder Mees Hoedemakers who may fit the requirements, unfortunately again in the highlights his defensive ability not shown.  The Italians in the previous post and this player have valuations of 1.2 million euros or less if Transfermkt can be believed. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YTj5iZhK0Rs Also an Australian box to box midfielder I'd recommend Boro have a look at is Angus Thurgate, a big improver last season, became more of a threat going forward and  definitely handles the defensive side as well. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uGb-QtRhfas
    • Choudhury looks he would be a top signing if he wants to come here, someone said he's rejected us twice though. Here are two other defensive midfielders I've come across on database searches, both Italian. Pity that their short highlights don't include their defensive efforts, but they both look like they can control play in possession well. Both also have been loaned extensively by their parent clubs, they might be interested in a permanent home. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=do1xIWsDD8A https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HYhm0Rt6PTk
    • Clearly Parker not the only coach that isn’t in charge of recruitment 
    • Just a thought but....   General concensus is we need a lcb and at least two midfielders. And in reality the only ones we've been "linked" with are greaves, choudhary and hannibal. All British based players. We also need at least one more striker, and we've been linked with hoppe, Henry, larsen to name but 3. I wonder if there are possibilities of us finding a gem or two for the defensive and midfield positions from abroad too. Especially given the eredivisie link and we have only really been linked to 1 player from the Dutch league.
