I know I might get some stick for this judgeing by people's opinion on downing but here it goes. Granted he's 32 now so only a few more seasons but for the right price and wages he is the kind of player Carlos likes to play out wide. Granted iv not seen to much of him live but I have it in my head that he has a good delivery/cross on him. It still does not address our lack of pace but I would not be completely against him comeing here 

 

He did have a spell in CM/Attacking midfielder where he played particularly well. Now, for a central midfielder he'd be quite quick even at this stage of his career. If he'd take a mid to low range wage and huge bonus should we get promoted, then he'd be worth thinking about.

Yea I seem to remember him more as a cam but that's how Carlos plays his wingers in more Central with the fullbacks giving the real width so maybe like we both said for the right wages could be worth looking at but all depends what other targets are. And like bullen said on radio other night we're in a position now where our signings are of a certain level 4-5 clubs are fighting for the same players

The Fulham game tells you all you need to know about him.

 

To me it just suggests he was desperate to impress, given the time he had been out. Yes he made a stupid decision, but to me it at least shows a real eagerness to succeed. I certainly don't hold it against him.

And while he was on the pitch, he was probably our best player

Jesus Christ, I hope not. At his best he was garbage.

To me the fact he made his debut for England when we didnt have 1 left winger and he still couldnt cement his place tells us all we need to know

Westwood, Lees alone now worth about £10 million 

 £10 million EACH.

We should look at someone like Bristol City's left back/wing back/midfielder Joe Bryan. To add some pace and versatility. Also if we add another central midfielder we should go for someone like Forest's Ben Osborn, he's a dynamic creative midfielder who can orchestrate things from deep or out wide. And if we want to add pace to the wing then we should look at Preston's Callum Robinson. Although there's rumoured top flight and Old Firm interest, it may just be talk or just interest, however those are the types of reasonably young dynamic players at this level that we need.

Birmingham City manager Harry Redknapp wants to take Liverpool youngster Ryan Kent on loan for the season.

The winger spent last season on loan with Barnsley and is set to be loaned out again with a number of Championship clubs interested in taking him.

And Redknapp, who missed out on Republic of Ireland winger Jonny Hayes to Scottish giants Celtic earlier this week, is hopeful of landing Kent on a temporary basis.

Nottingham Forest have had a bid rejected for Rangers’ James Tavernier according to a report from The Scotsman.

With Warburton still being very familiar with the Rangers squad after only leaving the club last season, it is no surprise that he is looking to his former team to see if there are any players he would like to bring with him to the City Ground. And one player he is hoping will soon follow him to the East Midlands is James Tavernier, a player Forest were first linked with earlier this week. Warburton was the man who signed him for Rangers and it seems to be a no-brainer for him to try and sign him again.

To be fair its probably a marked improvement on our current set up.

I think so :ph34r:

 

Paper talk the other day said we're one of a few clubs interested in Jackson Irvine, after the many times I've said we should buy him :manager:

Good work.

 

I've resigned from my post as Trusted Owlstalk Scout under a cloud after the way my recommendation of Lewis McGugan turned out, so you're the last TOS-er in town.

 

:duntmatter:

To be fair though, many of us were delighted when we signed him and wanted us too. No-one really foresaw how it would turn out, apart from a Watford fan at the time, who warned us about his attitude or something.

This was all before we knew the extent of Chansiri's spending power though wasn't it and at the time regardless of what went on previously, Mcgugan was a must have.

There were a few people at the time who didn't think the McGugan signing was a good idea.

 

I was one of them..

 

He had been a passenger in quite a few games even in the loan spell.

That's true. He stood out on loan and was seen as a coup at the time due to his experience at this level.

I should've listened to all my Forest supporting mates. They all said he was a talented player, but 'lazy' and 'temperamental' were mentioned more than a couple of times.

Yeah this was the thing, there was clearly issues with him as shown by his time at Forest and Watford, but at that point we were so starved of anyone with skill who could do something amazing and get you standing up, we obviously took to him because well, when he can be bothered he is fantastic, and DC when he took over seemed to sign him because we wanted him and its a easy way of trying to get the fans onside with an unkown manager.
