    Very tenuous for me,especially the bit about competing with the jacks.

    This is the quality of player we need to be signing.

    29 quite old for a mid-fielder.

    We can see that he can perform at a high level so we wouldn't be gambling that he can step up and my overall impression is that he's got real quality which would be good enough to impress in the Premiership. Of course, I'm only stating my own opinion like anyone else .

    Which knowledgable people in France? What have they said?

    I genuinely know nothing about this guy.

    “Ask anyone in the game, if you want a player from France or a French player, 99 per cent of the time you will have to deal with Willie McKay, or someone like him. If you want to get the job done, then you need the Willie McKays of this world."

    Neil Warnock February 2019.

    If this deal does go ahead, I hope and presume it will be one of the 1 per cent.

    Mehmet has has his eye on him? If Mehmet Dalman is scouting our players we have serious, fundamental flaws at the football club.

    Either way, he's at 41 here:

    He dropped out of the top 100 in 2018.

    I posted a few weeks ago that I would like Cardiff to go in for Peterborough's Marcus Maddison. He's been consistently one of the best central midfielders in League One for the past 4-5 seasons. To put it into perspective in 190 appearances he's racked up 43 goals and 70 assists and can play left and right midfield as well.

    League One of course is in no direct competition with Ligue 1 of France, however Maddison is available for 2-2.5m if reports are to be believed and is 4 years younger than Sankharé. For me that on paper looks good, but maybe there's something I am missing as the limited interest in him, only Hull and Sunderland have been quoted chasing his signature, seems to suggest he's not up to the step up to Championship football.

    Maddison isn't a centre mid, he's a winger or an attacking midfielder.

    Fair enough just a player I'm keen on but obviously in direct competition with Reid, Paterson and Tomlin, as well as our wingers. Wouldn't hurt to dip in for him but as I stated previously, interest in him despite his stats on paper is relatively quiet.

    For me just hard get behind looking at a player like Sankharé because come September he'll be 30. And as a box to box player where ideally the player needs to be fit and have a good engine... Age is not necessarily friendly to that type of playing style.

    It's decent but do we need another ten when we have Paterson, Tomlin and Reid? If we've only got a finite pot of money, I'd rather we signed a proper CM and a striker.

    Absolutely, spot on the money.

    Not according to Football Manager.

    https://www.google.com/search?q=youn...eOxKJnuaPuE3M:

    I'm sure he played up front for Poyet for a bit. I fell a tiny bit in love with Bordeaux after the Euros and keep a (very) small eye on them.

    He also had a number of weeks out with "beard implant complications"

    I would rather think its been pointed out to Mehmet that he's someone we are interested in,after that he is the man to crunch the numbers.

    You genuinely know nothing about a lot of stuff Rudey - manners for a start.

    A couple of people I still correspond with at Nantes since you ask, and they said he's a good player basically , although they did say it in French.

    I think you'll find that he takes a very active part in that. He watched a lot of players in France for us last year including Emiliano Sala. Obviously Sir Neil has the final say but I think Mehmet hasn't just pursued the manager's nominations but made a few of his own.
    Remember he's in a position to talk money with players and clubs and so he's got a role in the process.

    Mehmet scouting a player who plays in a position we already have options for when we need someone in the middle.

    Farcical

    He's a midfielder is he not?

    I'd argue we need midfielders.

    Backslapping himself in threads where he talks to himself - yes he does; no he doesn't - and even asking himself out for a drink!

    Top marks for persistence and dedication to the weird cause.

    It's hilarious. He's painted himself into a corner

    If ronniebird stops posting suddenly, then it'll just be even more obvious it's his multi account and he's too CCMB-obsessed to let that happen. So he has to continue with the same lengthy and numerous posts, in addition to his own numerous daily posts.

    It's like having another day job

    in case you wondered, it was for being as good as your original opinion

    p.s you might have mates in france but ive worked in french football, theres many other targets in france you should know we should target. but you already knew that didnt you pepe le shithouse

    What the **** is that all about ?
    All I said was that I'd heard good reports about the player. I didn't claim to be an expert on French football and I wasn't rude or nasty to you or anyone else.
    There seem to be one or two really nasty characters here.
