It does seem like Maddison has been discussed here for a couple of years, has put up great numbers in league one for years and yet no Championship team has ever shown any concrete interest to even activate the release clause.

Yeah that's what I mean.  There has to be something putting everyone off?  It's not like he's untapped potential because he does have the numbers already.  Some players don't have the numbers, get overlooked for a while, but then someone sees the potential and they blossom.  This doesn't appear to be the same as that.  I think attitude or personality has been mentioned on here before?

As long as he doesn't grin awkwardly after missing a good chance...

Something about Maddison doesn't sit right with me.  He's an odd one.

Have to agree. Peterborough dont seem that desperate to keep him. Something must be off.

Reportedly he's got an attitude and is a bit of a trouble causer. What that actually means though, I don't know.

Well heck, we've had Gazza and Merson... If they were bad players, they would have been kicked out.. 

So let's Spice things up, cause we could for sure use Maddison's skilles on the pitch!

A New club might help him develop on the mental plan...

Isn't Maddison out of contract in the summer. No club has matched his release clause for years so you'd think there is something about him that clubs don't like. You can't argue against his stats though.

attitude apparently reminds me of Tomlin a bit, plenty of ability but not the greatest trainer

I think he wants to leave and move up, Peterborough know this and therefore aren't making any attempt to keep him. There was a chance he could have gone this time last year, but then I think Peterborough invoked a clause for a 1 year extension

I haven't heard if this is true or not yet but he's someone I have wanted us to sign for the past 3 transfer windows.

Yes, he's got an attitude problem and doesn't defend but I am sure him stepping up a level could change that. His stats over the past 3 seasons cannot be ignored - he is prolific assist king especially from set pieces which we have lacked for a long time.

The only problem is I can't see where he would fit in the 3-5-2 system but what if I heard is true about Ben Gibson then I can see us going to a back 4 and playing with wingers.

He's from the Newcastle area and stepping up a division, so I'm sure he wouldn't throw away that progression opportunity away easily.

All good players need to have a bit of a attitude and ruthless streak in them I suppose.

Clarke, Britt, Maddison is a front 3 I’d like to watch, agree about Maddison being a weird one like.

I wonder if Britt will still be here come February?

True he may not be, would be a shame though to finally get some width in then sell our best striker. Then again it’s probably exactly the kind of thing we’d do.
