    Not sure we're a serious link on Turnbull.

    No doubt he's been on our radar but he'd be joining the most crowded part of our team and arguably another defensively-imposing midfielder would be more preferential over another forward-minded player if we have Adams, Ings, Long, Djenepo, Redmond, JWP, Lemina etc.

    This is my sentiment too, I don't think we can go into next season with only Oriel Romeu as our only defensive midfielder. Hopefully this gets addressed.

    Agreed. Other CMs can play DM but it's not ideal. Romeu is our only out and out DM and arguably we could upgrade on Romeu anyway as much as I do love him.

    I'd be happy to go the way of young Championship player and try n lure Phillips.

    He isn't good enough, He will be sold too, let's not be disagreeing and actually think he is good enough or have age on his side.

    Yep, he turns 25 in the next six months. If we were signing him from someone we'd all be rightly underwhelmed. He's not up to it if we want to get back to challenging for a top-half finish.

    Well mate, we can all beg to differ, I think he will do ok for a prem team, and wouldn’t say he is so far of Romeu, who has loads of games on his side.

    I agree, he could do very well in the prem ( probably with Burnley or Palace even). I think people question who's team it should be with?
    He deserves a few games with us until January and then assess. Its not fair stringing him along either.

    I wouldn't be upset if we signed him, had a good season in a decent league and he's the exact type of player i think we're looking for.

    Reed just doesn't fit our model now, He's getting too old, And I honestly don't think he would be a improvement on Oriol what so ever.

    Mods, why the edit?

    I thought we were on a forum for debating, if you’re going to sensor harmless posts you won’t have anyone able to debate and the site may as well close.

    I’d expect over 50% of posts from here on to be edited or s this just sensoring select individuals?


    Apologies if I’ve got the wrong end of the stick but genuinely confused.

    Norwich have a fee agreed for Turnbull with Motherwell according to "sky sources"

    He’s in Norwich this afternoon, but intending to speak to more than one club whilst in England before making a decision.

    Wouldn’t mind betting Brighton are making a play for him.

    In that case, could you ask him what the situation is with Turnbull please? Are Saints interested?
