He is not better than Hector mate :tango:

The price quoted for Hector was £4-5mil, Borner was free and is quality and so far error free. Yes would’ve loved Hector back but Borner hasn’t put a foot wrong so far and has adapted to Championship life with ease. For me we can use the money saved to invest in other areas

Lacks a bit of height but genuinely don’t think I’ve seen the fella put a foot wrong yet, Iorfa also playing well is gonna give GM a massive headache when the captains back fully fit 

 

Borner has a bit of calmness about him, and I think it rubs off on the back 4 as a whole , in a similar way to what we had when Loovens was at his best here

I got negged to death at the start of the season when I said stick with borner and stop perusing hector. All I got was, "but hector was our player of the season we need to do all we can to get him"

It’s some weird obsession that Wednesday fans have that players who have been on loan to us are world class and anyone who takes  their place is no good. Ben 10, Wickham, Hector were never our players but people still pine for them like some schoolboy thinking about his first ex girlfriend.

I'm not just saying this to be contrary... Börner is probably a level above Hector. The bloke is outstanding for a free

We need to find another 2 or 3 free’s from bundesliga2, in the Borner mould, and we would be laughing then.....

I totally agree - I don’t dispute he’s a very good signing 

 

He just isn’t as good as Hector

Don't think there is much between Hector and Borner overall apart from the price tag.  

 

Hector stands out due to his more cultured style, appearance and liking for the ping upfield.  Borner just gets on with it and does the unglamorous stuff very well, plus wears black boots.

 

From a value for money perspective Borner is the man.

This post is ripe for another episode of ‘Did they really get negged to death, let’s use the search function and find out’.

Captain material.

Absolutely this. Similar qualities to Beckenbauer. Superb player.

I'm sorry, but we'll have to agree to disagree on that.

But..to be fair we had seen Hector and knew little of Borner..If Borner had turned out like van aken...would you still want Hector...?

Having said that...whoever found Borner deserves a pat on the back

I hope the club are having a good look around the division he came from see if they can uncover any more gems


Cracking player and I hope the people at the club will be.
 

To be honest it only underlines the quality and how terrible value for money players are in the English Championship.

Given the choice of Borner or Hector I'd opt for Hector both cracking players but for me Hector is better going forward and is slightly better all round.

 

 Very impressed with Borner though and to say he didn't cost anything we have a real gem.

Borner is a classic aggressive and physical yet cultured defender

 

Reminds me of the likes of Thome, Walker, Viv etc

 

An absolute steal on a free and wouldn't surprise me if he's made captain or we sell him for something astronomical he is that good
