    Bournemouth's record of signing Liverpool players is woeful. Smith, Ibe and Solanke - about £40m spent there and nothing to show for it.

    I don't know anything about him, but we need a left back, he has been playing proper football as a left back (not u23s or dreaming of the bench) and he looks pleased to roll up at Cardiff. The best thing is that this was a surprise - and clearly something the club have been working on with no leaks. Not paper talk. Not agent talk. A sensible (on the face of it) deal that suits all parties.

    Agreed, strikes me as a sensible deal. Makes a pleasant change from the last manager who seemingly drew names from a hat or failing that raided Bristol City.

    112 appearances

    10 in the PL
    31 in The MLS


    34 PL2
    8 Reserve league... Etc

    I am not using this to knock him, he could be fantastic, I hear he's attacking and has pace so already looking forward to seeing what he can do for us.

    Some players just need a club and regular games, I remember wondering who chopra was when he came from basically the reserves too and that worked out.

    Give Bennett a rocket up his arse too

    Re: Brad Smith Signed on loan

    There are a few YouTube compilations doing the rounds of Brad Smith (mainly) in the MLS. He looks good as an attacking LB getting good crosses in the box but I have yet to see any examples of him defending!

    Still - hope for the best and think positive thoughts!

    Who’s wetting their knickers over him?

    Re: Brad Smith Signed on loan

    I remember he was considered quite a prospect when he was at Liverpool and being pretty impressed when he played for them in televised cup game against lower league opposition (Exeter?). Don't think he did too badly in his first few games for Bournemouth either, but he's disappeared off my personal radar since then, so it's just a case of wait and see as far as I'm concerned.

    My mate who watches matches with me is always having a go at Joe Bennett this season and he was saying on Tuesday that we should sign a new left back and play Bennett in front of him - I'd be surprised if that's what happens, but you never know.

    Re: Brad Smith Signed on loan

    I don't think Bennett has a good enough end product to play further forward. He never seems to know what to do half the time he gets the ball in an attacking position. He does put the odd good cross in but more often than not he slows things down.
