Thread: James Collins - Signing agreed

  1. #61

    Re: James Collins - Signing agreed

    He'll be the third James Collins to play for the club, after Welsh International James 'Ginge' Collins and Jimmy Collins, a forward to play for us in the late 1930s. We've had two Ken Jones' too, and 2 Eddie Jenkins' and 2 Ray Daniel, and 2 Kevin Lloyds, 2 John Williams'.

    But there's only one Peter Whittingham!

    I was dreading it being a 3 year deal! It's possible that our striking options looks as follows next year:

    1. Moore
    2. Harris
    3. Collins
    4. Vassell
    (Watters and Glatzel out on loan.)

    That looks so much better than this year.

    This would provideMoore with the support he really needs.

    How many Schwinkendorfs have we had?

    This pushes Watters even further down the queue. For a reported £1m signing, he could have an incredibly short-lived career at the City.

    Don't know a lot about him, I suppose he will replace Glatzel in the back up role. Unless Moore is sold which is possible.

    But thinking about this a bit further, this season beat the crap out of Kieffer, the type of player he his must be exhausting and he looked shattered by the end. Having Collins to ease the burden is quite smart, and for a free seems like good business.

    You wouldnít play him and kieffer in the same team so he probably doesnít impact watters and harris that much

    So yeah Iím on board

    Re: James Collins - Signing agreed

    I think it's a very shrewd signing.
    He could be a ready-made like-for-like replacement for Kieffer should he leave, or provide back up and support to ease the burden that Kieffer has been carrying throughout this season.
    My worry is that the board will be more easily swayed to let Kieffer go.

    Looking at his stats in a bit more detail, he's not an exact replica of Moore.
    Doesn't win a particularly high number of aerials (could also be down to the way Luton play), drops deeper, works very hard in pressing - I don't think playing both of them is out of the question.

    So yeah I’m on board
    I hope we won't play him and Keiffer in the same team unless we're chasing the game, but you never know with the way we've played the game for the last seven seasons.

    I also hope that he doesn't become our first choice if we sell Keiffer. He looks a good signing as a back up for Keiffer, but I'm not sure about a direct replacement for him, but it seems like a clear drop in standards if he was our first choice striker next season.
