Thread: Midfielders for next season.

    Re: Midfielders for next season.

    Bit of an obvious suggestion but hard not to imagine that Warnock will be interested in Will Vaulks.

    Your opinion of course. Personally i think its bollox and we went up because the likes of Ralls easily competed and got the better of midfields at that level and will do again.

    Yes I'd agree , our midfield did the job , Ralls was very good ,best I've seen him at that level .

    We will miss Gunnerson so badly.

    We can improve on Gunner if anything. Our promotion team was not overrun.

    Just need to get the right signings.

    If you're refering to my reply I didn't say the team was overrun, I said the midfield was.

    What's Ralls' strengths exactly, because I honestly don't know? He's not particularly adept at passing, not strong in the tackle (tends to get caught the wrong side of the player) and doesn't score too many goals.

    33 isnít that old.
    Looked as if he still had an engine when I saw him last season.


    Those 4 were the only ones of any interest on that list.

    Iíd expect we are going to have to buy rather than pick up frees.

    Marcus Maddison of Peterborough United. Mid 20's, averaged over 20 goals/assists in the last 4 seasons in League One. He's in the final year of his contract next season and very likely a Championship team will come in for him.

    Good shout.
    But does he play the same role as Reid ?
    Same goes for Nick Powell
    I like the 2 at QPR, Freeman and Luongo.

    If QPR still have financial problems maybe they would sell.

    Lee Evans looked really good for Sheff Utd, but got offloaded to Wigan and hasnít played much there.
    Any one know the story ?
    He could be a cheap option.
    Only 24 and the type of project Warnock thrives on.

    Paul Coutts has been released at Sheffield too. Their fans seem to rate him. Canít really say I know much about him

    Another one who impressed last season was Ben Pearson at Preston. Again, no idea what he would cost, just throwing a name out there.

    Volks and Ampadu are also names likely to be linked.

    Re: Midfielders for next season.

    Weíve also been linked with David Turnbull from Motherwell

    Need to move quickly as hes probably Celic bound send Patterson up there with super kev to convince him now.

    Good player, but I canít see this one.

    Do you think he will stay with Sheff Utd now they are up ?

    Also, again isnít he more of an attacking mid like Reid.

    Re: Midfielders for next season.

    Joe Aribo at Charlton is another who seems destined to play at a higher level.

    I think Smithies will step in if Etheridge goes.Would need someone to keep him on his toes though.

    Re: Midfielders for next season.

    Craig Bryson is out of contract and would be a championship version of Harry Arter. Whilst Ralls struggled this season cast your mind back to our promotion year and he put in some great performances. I also think like some others that Reid would do a great job in midfield with a couple of ball winners around him. David Meyler is a player who has always done well against us and I think Reading want to get shot of him due to a falling out of some sort. Heíd also lend a huge amount of experience and some leadership to the midfield which we currently donít really have following our departures.

    Damour's still here as well isn't he? Decent Championship squad player

    Meyler is a good shout.

    How old is he ?

    Not sure about Bryson now though

    Need 2 decent keepers and I rate Westwood highly.
    Warnock was after him last summer

    Please, NO!

    Let's try and move forward.

    I was listening to the Blakey's Bootroom and had to agree when Paul Abbandonato said that the front four at Manchester United caused their defence so many problems at Old Trafford that you'd back them to do the business in the Championship all day long. Yes, I know the Manchester United defence is nowhere near as good as it once was, but all of them would be among the best defenders in the Championship if they were turning out at that level every week. It's for this reason that I tend to agree with you that a number ten type wouldn't be a priority (Paterson was very effective in that position in the second tier as well).

    I like Freeman at QPR and he would give us the quality dead ball delivery we possibly lacked this season, but I feel we'd have to think about leaving one of the two wingers out if we were going to play him and Warnock loves his wingers. Luongo plays deeper these days and I think it's in that area that we have the most need for new midfielders, but I wonder if he is physical enough to be a Warnock player?

    Lee Evans = "bit of a nutter" (that's what I was told by someone who has a good knowledge of players from this part of the world).

    Coutts is a talented ball player who tends to be used out wide, he could be an excellent free transfer signing, but has suffered a lot with injuries in recent years.

    Ben Pearson picked up fourteen yellow cards and three red ones in the season just ended - there was a time when I would have said "typical Warnock player", but we're a bunch of shrinking violets lately .

    Like a few others, I think Valks is a real possibility for us.

    As for Ampadu, absolutely no chance.

    Not seen a great deal of Turnbull, but he sounds like a real prospect and I'm fairly sure he could actually be a player who would make is money when he left us.

    Re: Midfielders for next season.

    Vaulks and Turnbull would be great additions, although Motherwell want at least their record sale so he'd cost at least £2m, have they forgiven us for Quinn?

    If we have aspirations to go for immediate promotion we surely cannot have Ralls in our starting eleven.

    I am amazed no one has mentioned Matt Smith yet. The welsh one not the lump at QPR!
