Unfortunately 2 of our current midfielders, Brown and Luongo seem to pick up injuries quite easily. If a player like Garner becomes available I would be very happy to get him in. 

Trouble is man utd may demand garner plays every week

Yes I think they probably will, or they will look for a club where he’d likely be a regular. Having such a strong midfield trio, may go against us on this occasion. No doubt though, Garner will be one of the best loan signings available to Championship clubs this season

If we’re persisting with a 3 man midfield then I think we could do with another 1 to cover suspensions and a few players who are more prone to injuries. Plus with the aggressive high press tactic it looks like we’re deploying they’ll be more emphasis on rotation this year. 
 

Aside from that a Man Utd supporting mate of mine said this will be a real coup if we get him. They dub him as the next Carrick for them.

Garner completes the midfield for us and allows us Bannan, Luongo, Brown, Fizz, Hunt & hopefully Garner

 

That six would allow plenty of rotational options and also lots of cover for injuries and suspensions. We have lots of Saturday followed by mid week games this season so a strong set of options is a good thing

 

Also gives us the opportunity to release Joey as well

Id drop all our midfielders for the chance of having a James Garner for a season. He is head and shoulders above what we have. Fantastic player. 

Is he really? Head and shoulders above Bannan. 

Has he ever gone out on loan in the championship before. Or are we just believing the hype.

We don’t need a centre mid. We have Brown (Dele), Bannan (Hunt), Luongo (Pelupessy). Easily enough options and I want these young lads getting game time as both have potential especially Dele Bashiru. 
 

1 striker

1 wing back (either side) 

 

Thats all we need. I’d like a keeper but Monk loves our two so a pointless discussion.

 

 

We need 1 wing back (Sanderson) 

1 CF

And then either another CM or another CF for me (Field, Garner, Simmonds) too cover the long season and allow different formations etcs

As I said before, I would much prefer Slattery to Garner. Twice the player and perhaps available on permanent deal considering that he was left out of Southampton's first team squad. 

 

He would be perfect fit for role of deep laying playmaker and would be improvement on both Pelupessey and Luongo. Would certainly make us better "passing" side. 

 

Would be on top of my list of "realistic targets".

err...ok. I hope Garner has not heard that 😄

 

You could be "the next" Robson, Keane, Scholes, Ince etc but no, Michael "flippin" Carrick.

Probably because a couple of clubs are trying to sign Yates who is currently their clogger in midfield. Boro is one.

They seem to be doing what we did and look how well that turned out.

There seems to be a lot of love for James Garner. I do wonder how many people have actually seen him play. 

 

 

Took the liberty of looking at Garners stats for games played, goals scored etc, because of some "bigging him up" and being properly reyt good and he's what we need etc, etc............Meh.

That's not to say, I would disappointed if we were to sign him, but he hasn't done a great deal as of yet.

Disagree but I’m not against it either if we can afford it.
