I’d like to see us take a look at this CJ Hamilton from our favourite club mansfield.  This kid has some searing pace and left footed. Seen him several times this season and he’s dangerous.  Worth a look steve if you’re reading. Lol. 

 

West Brom are keen. Presumably that prices us out.

Ifora as come as a centre back if you listen to his interview 

Iorfa can play CH, RB, I also think he could play the holding midfield position instead of Hutch, could be our new carlton Palmer. We've got two or three defenders now that can play different positions, which is good.

I agree but he said he spoke to Bruce and he agreed to come as a centre half

Doubt we will spend 2 mill on a player this pre season 

 

I plucked that figure out of thin air. I'm confident we'll have a little bit to play with if we need it. I mean we spent £250k on Iorfa in January didn't we. Anyway depending on terms most are paid in instalments anyway these days. Trust Bruce to be smart, like he stated he only did a less than £2M net spend last summer with Villa. Albeit wages are huge for them.

He’s useful to have in the squad because of that, but he’d be second choice in all those positions

Iorfa will be our first choice right back and so he should be. Offers so much more than palmer.

Not when it comes to defending, the full backs primary job, he doesn’t Useful player though

I wouldn't see the Börner signing as an indication that Hector isn't re-signing. 

 

We'll 100% make Hector our main priority this summer, but with Pudil leaving, and Van Aken most than likely surplus to requirements, we're lacking in the central defensive areas for cover. If he can also potentially cover left back and a holding midfield role (two areas we are weak in), then the signing of Börner does make sense, assuming he's up to the required ability to perform in the Championship.

 

The fact that Norwich offered him a long term deal at the same time they were signing the likes of Marco Steipermann, Onel Hernandez, Christoph Zimmermann and Mario Vrancic offers some encouragement. All of those players came from 2. Bundesliga (with the exception of Zimmermann, who came from the Regionalliga, lower down the German pyramid), and all of those players have played key roles in their domination of the Championship this season.

That's debatable, Lees was mediocre last season, Iorfa will seriously push him for that position, he's stronger, faster, more aggressive and stronger in the air, Hutch will miss as much as he plays and you don't get consistent team performance around players like him so Iorfa wouldn't be second choice in those positions if I was choosing the team.

I hope he does push him, that’s what’s needed serious competition

I wish Lees had a bit more in terms of organisational/leadership capabilities - our defence looked lost after Loovens left until Westwood came back in. Not sure he's the right one to hold the armband, which currently pretty much secures his place in the team.

Agree, if Hector came back, if this Bonar arrives who's been captain of his present club, Westwood if he stays would he better options, Lees too quiet, we need a roll your sleeves up, shouter baller.

Do we think taking the captaincy off Lees is worth it or would it cause too much of a ruction in the dressing room? 

 

Personally I’ve never been convinced he’s embraced the role in the same way that Loovens did. He’s a great servant for the club, don’t get me wrong, I just don’t know if he relishes the leadership role or if he’d be happier just quietly getting on with it and leaving the organising and motivating to somebody else.

Hector too slow to be type of midfield player SB wants. If you read comments on Lee he wants players who cover 12k to 15k per game. Lee has covered 14k in games. Hector will get nowhere near that. Would not be a surprise to see Lee not start or be moved on. 

Yet he picked Huddleston every game at Hull.
