Thread: Chris Gunter

    Chris Gunter

    Can still turn in good performances. Hope he does for Wales in the matches ahead.
    Would he provide good cover for us?

    Yes absolutely he would

    Re: Chris Gunter

    Iíve said it a few times on here, he would be a perfect signing for us. Plenty of experience and would provide good knowledge for the new right back we signed. Free transfer , knows the area.

    Gunter has been poor for Wales for a while, I've not seen enough of him for Reading. I think it depends on wages, we have Bacuna, Patterson and Nelson to a certain extent who can cover those positions without adding extra funds.

    If players are coming in I'd rather they were improving the team

    Bacuna is so much better in midfield. We need him there. Not as good defensively as Gunter.

    Paterson , god knows what position he is but heís not a right back thatís for sure. No defensive awareness whatsoever.

    Nelson could certainly do a defensive job there , but heís one half of our first choice CB pairing and I wouldnít want to lose him from there.

    The new fella we signed is very good going forward by all accounts, but inexperienced. Signing an experienced player on a free transfer seems good business to me.

    If Gunterís wages were moderate, I think City should offer him a 12 month contract with an option to extend.

    Not for me.

    we desperately need some more youth in the side. Many of or players are the wrong side of 30 and will be starting to decline and pick up more injuries. Even if we could sign gunter on a 12 month deal thats a short term sticking plaster only, and next summer it'll be another position we have to fill in addition to the many others that are expiring next summer. We have to start thinking in the longer term.
    I suspect Gunter will be holding out for a 2 year deal, which would be an even bigger mistake for us as it'd be yet more wages tied up by ageing players that can't play the full season.

    Als I'm not convinced he's still good enough - if it wasn't for his history with us or Wales there wouldn't be anyone clamouring to sign a player that was extremely average at Reading and they don't want to keep on.

    think back to all those points dropped because signings got lost on their way to games, could be crucial by the end of the season

    Of the three players mentioned, Bacuna is the only one worth considering and that would be a backward step to take him out of midfield.

    Re: Chris Gunter

    For Wales I think Roberts and now Neco Williams will be ahead of him. I;d have him at City though, as said above, on fair wages and a 1 or 2 year contract. he can play both sides too. Although we have Bennett and Cunningham on the left.

    I think the point they're making is that he wouldn't be new to the area and have to spend time settling in

    Exactly. Amazes me when players sign from far flung corners of the globe and fans wonder why they not happy sometimes.

    Yes free transfer and negotiate wages. We should let Paterson go to Boro for £2m and use the money to sign a creative midfielder.

    That's a great idea.

    Now I almost wish we'd hung on to Madine. We might have got something for him.
