Thread: Joniesta (Jonny Williams - CONFIRMED)

  1. #1

    Joniesta (Jonny Williams - CONFIRMED)

    Phil Cadden says MM wants to sign him. Let's say I'm unconvinced he's the answer.

    Iíd love him here.
    Fitness is an issue but he is quality.
    If he could be fitted into the team with Wilson to take the free kicks!!

    League one standard at absolute best

    Fantastic in his prime but not the answer anymore

    Re: Joniesta

    I love Jonny, technically excellent but been unfortunate with injuries

    Would certainly add something to our midfield

    Re: Joniesta

    Two goals and zero assists in League One this season. No thanks.

    He wouldn't be on our radar if he weren't Welsh.

    He's been a decent player for Wales, but look at his career statistics in the Championship.

    He's played 132 games with 3 goals and 10 assists.

    Not great for an attacking/creative midfielder.

    Seems a goner, but seriously underwhelmed, doesnt fit into our age profile for reducing age of team either.

    Seems there's something to this story;-

    My main concern with this move if it comes off is Williams' fitness rather than whether he can hack it in the Championship - I think he'd love to come here considering where his career is now and if we got the Williams who plays for Wales, he would be a good addition for us.

    This and an unfortunate injury record have been the main weaknesses of the player. What he is fantastic at doing though is helping keep possession and winning free-kicks - the former being one of our squad's limitations and the latter leading to one of our biggest strengths.

    At the end of the season we're down to one winger (Murphy) so need to look at this position. As per the other thread on this, we're after a more balanced squad age wise so can still sign players above 25 if they fit what we're looking for, but they will be in the minority going forward.

    There still seems to be a negative reaction to whatever the club does. Sure, over the past few months the results have been poor but the last fourteen months off the field deserve more praise/time to come to fruition.

    Re: Joniesta

    Heís cheap and heís Welsh, thatís why he appeals to the club. Available for £200k as out of contract end of season. Letís just hope heís not given any longer than 2 years given his injury record and it isnít a Bacuna style deal.

    An underwhelming signing but given MM thinks Flint is a fantastic centre half at this level what do you expect?

    Iíd rather we went to the end of the season with what we got, thanked MM for keeping us up, albeit agriculturally, and give a new man as much of a blank canvas as possible.

    As explained by Surge, he's someone who could be of benefit to the squad as it is now and I'd add that he's good enough technically to cope if there is a genuine desire to change to a more progressive way of playing.

    Re: Joniesta

    McCarthy had him on loan at Ipswich, so maybe he knows how to get the best out of him.

    When MM leaves Wilson on the bench, I really don't see the need for this signing.

    It's not that area of the pitch that we're weakest

    Does this mean tomlin is still some distance from returning?

    I would imagine Tomlin isn't being exactly a model pro either

    Well, unless Harry Wilson decides to sign for us in the summer, we’re going to be needing players with creativity for next season - especially with Ojo’s loan over, Hoilett’s contract up and age and fitness doubts concerning Tomlin.

    I thought we were a Welsh club so we should have a majority of Welsh players who are proud to play in the Capital of Wales!

    Williams scored 2 goals and provided 1 assist in 28 games for Ipswich.
