See why Chelsea paid a good wedge for him. He is a quality defender and reads the game so well, A cut above most at this level and performs to that standard 9 out of every 10 games. We need to try and bring him in for next season and if at all possible but I am sure SB will be all over this.

Sadly no way we can afford him after his loan is up. Even on a free transfer, he would surely be on more than our current top earners coming from Chelsea. We can hope that he would take a wage cut and that Chelsea would release him, but he would walk into almost any team in the division, including those with parachute money for wages. 

 

Might be worth trying for a season long next season if we cant get him permanently. Hopefully he feels settled here.

Old mantra from the playing days.

Defenders - defend. 

I like the old adage “They can’t score if the ball’s in Row Z”.

I see the Hector situation as being similar to when we signed Bannan. Money talks but I think sometimes players who suddenly feel appreciated, valued, settled and working with the right manager do see things a little differently. I certainly don’t see this as a pipe dream by any means.

Looks a man mountain now. Sign him up!

 

Shows how clueless Jos was, making Hector look error prone at this level. Since he left Hectors been collosal at back. Absolute priority no1 signing this summer!

Jos Luhukay did two very good things at Wednesday:

 

1. He signed Michael Hector.

2. He f*cked off.

Well yes but did not do the second one quick enough. Four weeks earlier and we would have been certs for play offs.

Aarons was MOM but Hector a close second.

He was like Rio in his prime. Oozes class at times.

 

He is a must for next season and DC and SB need to sweet talk him.

He's clearly enjoying his football here especially now under Bruce where we're not consistently rotating everyone in and out. A settled side breeds confidence and continuity. It also means once your in you need to play well to keep the shirt or someone else comes in and does well you've got to put more effort in to displace them. 

 

He fits in well here and is definitely the sort of player Bruce likes in his sides, strong, quick, big and physical, so fingers crossed a deal can be reached at the end of the season becouse I have no doubt Bruce will be doing all he can to sort a deal out.

It really isn’t mate 

 

He’s an excellent defender - but he’s launched passes left right and centre out of play all season, not just tonight

 

Just clean up, slot it into Hutch and bannan - easy

 

You’re talking rubbish mate, no way am I believing that, or you’ve got selective memory

There's gonna be a bit of a quandry for Hector this summer ..

 

a) stay at chelsea and be farmed out on loan (possibly to us or maybe someone in the premiership) before being following year

 

b) stay at chelsea and just train and play in the reserves

 

c) try and look to move (to us ideally!)

They’ll be a lot of clubs queuing for his signature believe you me, perhaps even lower prem clubs 

 

We’ll do well to see him again after this season

Still makes me feel like he has a mistake in him every game, but strength, reading of the game and composure all great. Sign if we can afford.

Could be a revelation if Bruce can get in some better attacking players. He is capable of bringing the ball out of defence and producing long raking passes for quick moving front players We must do all we can to secure him

Hector is likely to be on some big wedge.

However...we've got quite a few on big wedge getting cast off in the summer surely freeing something up.

 

When does David Jones' £800k p/wk contract run out?

That’s just his laidback Jamaican roots, he knows what he’s doing
