Thread: Mark Harris rumour

    Mark Harris rumour

    Off on loan to Div 1 club.
    May or not be true but I cant make my mind up about him. If he does go, though we will definitely need a replacement as really he is our no3 striker.

    For his development, it's probably best if he goes and plays week in, week out. If he does go, we need to replace him. I think if we can replace him with someone better (now him and Whyte have gone), it should be a positive for him and the club.

    Can he play wide ?

    He seemed to have established himself as a squad player, he's certainly 3rd choice as Vasell is unreliable. Be an odd one if he goes and will need replacing unless Mick fancies Zimba/Davies?

    Good for club and player BUT we can’t afford it unless there’s another striker coming in.

    He would hopefully get more playing time at Rotherham or Fleetwood - but as you say he is our third striker now (until Bale turns up!)

    The second article quotes Tomlin and Vassell as striker options, meaning we can afford Harris to go out on loan. If only!

    I suppose Murphy, Davies and Colwill are also in the mix, but I think Mark Harris would get a fair bit of game time for us this season.

    Murphy through the middle would be worth a shot

    The younger lads can probably afford more time being around the squad. Harris is a bit older now and maybe can't afford another season playing bench warmer/part player.

    Could be a good thing all round, as said above, and now 2 have gone out maybe we can afford one in.

    I dont think this is a good idea. I think he should stay. Think he will get some decent game time with us.

    Sometimes I watch him play and think wow heís our most promising youngster.

    Sometimes I watch him play and think wow didnít know he was playing.

    Re: Mark Harris rumour

    He offers something different. Collins runs his socks off but heís a work horse and isnít going to stretch the defence. Ok the level of opposition wasnít great yesterday but Harris looked very lively.

    So what if heís 3rd in the pecking order. Moore and Collins will get injuries / need a rest and we need options off the bench.

    Unless weíve got someone lined up I just donít see it.

    Re: Mark Harris rumour

    Should anything be read into Harris being, not for the first time, mentioned almost as an afterthought when he listed his striking options after yesterday’s game? Harris seems to be behind only Moore and Collins in the striking pecking order to me and, as such, would not be a candidate to be loaned surely? However, another thing our manager heavily hinted at was that he sees little need for wingers, so is Josh Murphy going to be used primarily through the middle when he’s fit?

    Re: Mark Harris rumour

    Loaning out Harris would be a mistake as he has proven he can score goals at this level and as we look like we may often play a front two with someone like Tomlin just behind instead of wingers this season we'd need 4 players battling for the front two spots not three and an occasionally fit Vassell.

    Re: Mark Harris rumour

    I'm wary of keeping a player "just in case" especially when he could get a good run of games elsewhere. If Moore or Collins are ahead of him he's only going to get 10 minutes here and there. If either of those get injured he could still be on the bench and if both are out we could try Davies or Zimba for a while, or recall Harris if needs be.

    On that basis would you loan out either Smithies or Phillips?

    I think that's a bit different - I'd say Harris is our third choice striker and at 22 needs more game time than he'll get here.

    In fairness, McCarthy didn't mention Vassell at all.....

    Healey started just three league games for City, scoring one goal.

    Harris has already started seven league games and scored three goals.
