If we do sign Bidwell or another full back, I wonder if that means Penney plays as a winger.

 

Or Fox is on his way? Otherwise, we have 6 full backs. And I’m not buying into Odubajo has been brought in as a winger. The lad is a full back!

So are you saying that the problem with Matais is that he was too good for the rest of the players. 

No far from it as MM had many flaws to his game. The original response from me was in reply to people saying that we did not have a player that made runs in behind. MM quite clearly did this, It was nearly always a diagonal run from outside to in which took him to or past the last centre back. It was the best part of his game imo, a part of his game that was very intelligent.  We seldom picked his runs out, whether MM would have done something if he ever received he pass is a different matter altogether. I could never work out why he didn't give the rest of our lot stick for not passing the ball to hm. To his credit he did not stop making those runs.

And we didn't stop not playing him in. Must have got fed up with him keep missing them.

 

If I remember rightly there was an early game in his time here against Bolton. We must have played him in about 3 or 4 and he missed everyone.

I don't rate Penney defensively so his best chance of making it here IMO is as a winger.

What do people think of Harris then? If he does sign is it that impressive? The guy has hardly played any football for a 26 year old. According to transfrmarkt hes played the equivalent of 72 full games in his whole career. Not much at all. I know Warnock got the best out of him but he still wasn't that outstanding. I agree that his attributes are what we need but is there better available? 

 

My Cardiff City supporting friends tell me that he was out for a long time and once he was back struggled to regain a place and got a bit sulky. Fell out with Colin (can’t blame him) and as a result not getting a new deal despite him being much liked down there.

It was a bit of a standing joke amongst our lot when MM played. Guess how many runs he makes without receiving the ball? It got to the point one match when we thought Bannan was refusing to pass to him out of spite as MM had not tracked his man back which led to a goal.

As I've said (and shown!) in several posts, he's played FAR more games as a right or left winger than full-back

Creating space and angles for your team mates? With our midfield he was doomed to fail :rolleyes:

Fair point, but there have been articles in germany re:borner, moses has been a bruce player and again in paper. Doesnt mean true ofcourse. I meant ive only seen the bidwell link on here, did it originate elsewhere?

Think it's more about not wanting to be giving the ball away needless. If all your striker does if miss the target you tend to take a different approach.

Doubt it! Be usual scrabble around in the bargain bins once the season has started to cobble together a squad. Wonder why we start most seasons badly with out of shape players who then become perpetual injury burdens.

Dont think it has to be lifted does it. We just need to get the ok from the EFL to make any signings.

An OK from the EFL would be lifting the embargo :laugh:
