Wonder if we could pinch Winnall and Hourihane from them? They seem to have an understanding, almost like what Sheridan and Hirst had. Hourihane would be good replacement for Lee, would add some more solidity, creativity and goals, whilst Winnall is in form and looks a genuine bargain. If possible I'd try and get both of them in, would be smart business like @studentowl suggested.

We really need to ship out Dave and Joao before bringing another striker in 

 

Joao on loan, potential maybe there, Dave permanent as simply not good enough 

 

What would happen if we bring another striker in without shipping out others?

I don't see Hourihane coming, I don't see how he would fit into the team with Bannan in there. Winnall is OK but can be lazy and again I don't see him coming to be possibly 3rd or 4th choice. One thing though, our lass says she's leaving me if we sign either so fingers crossed! lol

Isn't Hourihane all left foot? He's a cracking player, I agree, but perhaps not as a direct replacement for Lee

Josh Scowen would be a direct replacement for Lee. He is a very good and underrated player, just like Kieran.

Again, its difficult to disagree with most of that. However, even allowing for Joao currently looking like Bambi on ice, if you said to me, who do you think will go the furthest, Lucas Joao, or Sam Winnall, my money would be on Joao

 

Probably yeah, internationally, but in England I'd currently say Winnall.

Hourihane is very good, but he'd be competing with hutch and jones for the deeper role. We need someone who likes to run around a lot!

Scores goals but needs the exceptional & consistent service he gets at Barnsley. Thrives off the work Hourihane & Hammill put in for him.

Absolutely

Apparently he only has 6 months left on his current deal?

 

Barnsley in a difficult position. 

 

Imagine they will have to bite the bullet and take what they can get for him now in Jan. 

 

Apparently their owner says they don't need to sell, but he's not kidding anyone

i don't think Joao will get to where winnall is now - never mind where winnall could end up.

 

winnall has been a regular goalscorer for years - most recently at championship level. Joao is nowhere near that.

If we've offered 500k that's embarrassing. 

Why? 

 

You don't go in with your highest bid first.

We one if not two more players on our books that will never kick a ball, to add to the rest.

 

I don't like to see all the money wasted, yep it's not mine, but is still the clubs that I support 

 

 

 

Fair enough, my view is sign the better players now whilst they are available then offload surplus players at the end of the season (if they can't be moved on in this window).  Before our season ticket prices rise again to cover Joao and Nuhiu's wages

It's 150k more than we'd have offered 2 years ago...

 

And if it's embarrassing it wouldn't be accepted. It's called a negotiation

I wouldn't bank on us being able to shift either by the end of the window, so for me you've got to go for your targets asap.

Getting rid of either would just be an added bonus.

Joao is not the same type of player as Sam Winnall. Winnall is more like Hooper, though of course, nowhere near as good

I agree theyre different players but Winnall is more effective.

 

winnall is very good in the air also. Which could mean both him and hooper could play in same side.
