    Tommy Doyle - Man City midfielder linked for loan

    https://www.dailymail.co.uk/sport/fo...mmy-Doyle.html

    The 20-year old last week asked for his loan at German side Hamburg to be cut short so that he could move elsewhere and earn more game time.

    A host of Championship sides have shown interest but Cardiff are pressing to fend off competition and win the race for the former City U23s captain.

    Man City do seem to like short midfielders.

    This is a strange one. Apparently, he’s only made six substitute appearances for Hamburg in Bundesliga 2. This is the club where Robert Glatzel has made 18 starts and scored 9 goals this season.

    Glatzel can give him a heads up about Cardiff then.

    he's supposed to be a good prospect, but it would be a slightly strange signing, given we have already at the club:
    ralls, pack, vaulks, bacuna, Wintle, Bowen, and Sang who can all play there.
    plus Patten, King and D'Almeida from the u23s

    he may well go on to have a Stellar career and eclipse all of those , but it would be a strange loan to me

    Especially as he struggled for game time at Hamburg - pretty sure they’re better than us, but not by a great deal.

    Its not strange at all. Our midfield is garbage.

    if it was an 8 month deal it would make more sense with potentially 3 of them leaving in the summer

    It is garbage, appalling on times. We need a player who has the ability to look up and play a pass, someone composed and a player with the ability to carry the ball those ten or fifteen yards that hurt the opposition and draw defenders out. I've heard good things about Bowen in terms of his ability to play a through ball and apparently he is composed (i've not seen him play yet) that's a positive. Maybe Doyle has the ability to carry the ball? We don't have anyone who can do that, and asking Ralls, Bacuna or Vaulks to do it is an act of negligence in my opinion.

    I think if watters is going to have any role or impact for us we desperately we need someone who can do as you say - actually look up and pick a pass

    When Zimba was substituted at Preston I felt for him as he had made some intelligent runs but noone had the nous to pick a pass

    I think a midfiled of any of Ralls wintle sang Bowen when fit gives us the options we need and if add Doyle to that then great because as far as I am concerned vaulks pack and bacuna can rot in the under 23s until they go or if someone is stupid enough to offer 50p for them then let them go - they have had their chance and added or offered practically zero to our efforts
