Wiki says he has scored 2 for Bolton - 100% improvement on his time with us.
Aberdeen turn down Jonny Hayes £500,000 bid saying the player is NOT for sale.
Bit of a blow.
Can't say I'm overly positive about the signing of a 29 year old winger from the Scottish league but I thought that the Scottish clubs were hardly in the position to turn down cash? Might be for the best - but imagine we'll up our bid.
Jay tried that one. Computer says no!!!
*Sparky* tried that one.. Jay showed him the door .
From what I've heard about Hayes, he's a very good player. I know it's a different story up there, but people who I know who watch that dross have said he's a very good player with a mean left foot. I imagine we'll go to £750,000 and if that's rejected £1,000,000.
Might have to raise some cash first.
I can see quite a few more being shown the exit.
Unless they're happy to be released and become "free agents" or we pay them off, we need to find someone who wants to take them on and after last Sunday's performance that could be quite a short queue.
Point taken mate, I cant see anyone actually wanting to buy the likes of Huws, Bennett or Richards.
I know Bennett got stuffed twice by Fredericks for Fulham's 2 goals but surely that threat should have been recognised and our left midfield should have given extra cover - not leaving Bennett isolated. (Look at the way our opponents always double tap Noone). This situation has always been a bit of an issue for us at left back whether it was Taylor, Malone, Declan or further back to Capaldi, Naylor and Kennedy. The left back always seems a bit more attack orientated and as a result tends to get exposed.
I'm not unhappy with the lad and wouldn't want to see him go. But who was left midfield? Was it not Huws? I've expressed my opinion of him before. I don't know what he is supposed to be, as he doesn't fit any traditional midfield roles unless they include being slow, not tackling and not giving cover to his defenders!!!
Richards was never going to work after his non-Ayatollah moment.
Others who could go: -
Pilkington - might get some money back there - he appears to have come to the end of his useful time with us
Manga - although despite what I've said about him in the past, he has performed well in the 3 centre back formation and had some good games while Bamba was suspended - he is likely to be the main source of any incoming transfer fee
Guonongbe - Gonzo for sake of ease - never recovered from that glaring miss at Birmingham
Ajayi - a bit unfair as we have never seen what he can do - perhaps Colin has and that is why he never gets a kick
Apart from another one or two youngsters whose names escape me, anyone else?
cannot see us getting rid of Bamba !!
Pilks, Declan, Fred, and maybe el noonio could be packing thier bags.
We desperately need a back up striker as Lambert looks a tad over the hill for me.
Lambert, too slow and past his use by date now.
It was Manga on my list Ronny, not Bamba. I just mentioned him in passing in the line on Manga.
Good point on Lambert. Either he is carrying an injury or he has just lost the plot - while taking the money!!!!
Noonie could go if another winger comes in and, yes, Declan could go as well. I thought he might be given to the end of the season but as he hasn't been in Colin's plans then he could well leave.
I think we need a first choice striker and Lambo / Kenny as a back up.
Well, the new keeper has arrived, just not in the way we thought: -
Welcome back Andy!!!
He moved onto Man City in July 1988...
2 months before I was born!
Not a player, but Andy Dibble has just become our new goal keeping coach ......
......from Rotherham funnily enough.
Looks like we are serious about this one but need to up the ante to get him: -
