I think we need a powerful tough tacking box to box midfielder for certain games. Woods is only 5 foot 8. Also he's only 23 and isn't Scottish :-)

He's a very good player mind. If we want to revert back to how we played first season he's ideal.

 

Also gets around the pitch like Lee, so A signing to cope with any loss to him again:

How long before someone on here rights him off on the basis that he's ginger. :duntmatter:

Sounds similar to Bannan? 

 

We do need a bit more physicality in that midfield area.

He's similar to Bannan but not afraid to get stuck in.

The perfect understudy to Lee

I'd find him a positive signing, but I'd have to ask why? Seems a really random one considering the sort of player he is and where we're currently weak...

Is he not more similar to Lee?

Not from what I've seen, he's more of a holding CDM, hence why he also plays as a defender.

Thats how I'd see him and given how much Lee was missed in his absence it would make sense.

Fair enough mate, but isn't he a bit of a right back too? Hence me saying more like Lee :biggrin:

I'll take your word on it, he's one of those that I know is very highly rated and know is busy in the midfield, but don't know whether he's busy in a defensive sense or busy in a box-to-box sense.

Had a very quick look on whoscored, and he sure has tackling figures similar to Bannan :rolleyes:lol

Fun fact: I'm not sure I've ever seen Lee play RB, I started watching during the season he was converted into midfield I believe. Still know all about it though, so I'm dead disappointed in you SB :biggrin:

 

Ryan Woods seems a random one though. Positive signing (if there's any truth to this whatsoever), but can't help but feel superfluous to our needs? Unless he really is coming in to play the slightly deeper CM role with the knowledge that he has more mobility than Jones or Hutch...

Could this be the signal that Hutch is going to be viewed as a CB again? All the questions, so few answers

 

Or maybe, as @mrgund would say, this is like when on football manager you go to bid on one player (Harlee Dean) but accidentally click on another player on the squad screen and you submit a bid and it gets accepted and it isn't until you get halfway through contract negotiations that you realise you've got the wrong player

Never known a centre half be a set peice specialist.  

 

But we need one, especially as he probably won't play abdi.  

Ronald Koeman!

If we were to get Dean and Woods and move Hutch to CB I'd say our squad is looking very strong. Would be 2 very good buys

Howson saying some interesting things in the paper tomorrow from CC on why we haven't made anymore signings. What we reckon it will say? He's happy with the squad, players to expensive, will wait until nearer the deadline?

FFP and the cost of players methinks

How much more interesting could it be? Our scouting reports got shredded by accident? We were going to hire a DoF for all this stuff and he got abducted by aliens? 

Feel ol' Dom is just trying to make it seem more interesting than it inevitably will be.

I think Woods is the kind of player Carlos would like. Loads of energy and running but plays more defensive and can put a foot in when needed. Obviously not the biggest but that doesn't seem to bother Carlos.

The running in a midfield of Boyd Lee Woods and Reach would really give us some "dynamic"

Would say to me we are struggling to get two centre backs and Hutch will be moved back

It sounds as if Hutchinson is going to start the season as a centre back again which makes the search less critical in terms of being held to ransom.

 

Carlos must remember though he had to put him in midfield because we kept getting dominated until he went back into midfield Fulham away.  

 

Woods would be a good signing to enable Hutchinson to play ag the back.

It'd be heavenly... just can't see it happening though!

Not sure Ryan Woods would help us not be dominated in midfield... he's full of energy but lacks physical presence and he really doesn't do that much tackling. 

But if we're looking to get the vibe of two seasons ago in, with the midfield more focussed on buzzing around than a solid defensive shape, he'd be ideal I guess?
