Just goes to show that so many involved in football are out of touch, Zahore is not good enough for the Premiership and who in the Championship are going to pay 8million and pay him 50k a week especially with no one going through the turnstiles.  NEXT. 

Yes keep him baggies, you'll need him next season and their on after cause you'll not go back up as quick next time.

Wednesday loan target Jake Clarke-Salter looks to be on the verge of a permanent move to French club Brest

Thats annoying as playing 3 we need cover and a left sided cenre back would help.

That's weird, I was just daydreaming of a salty Brest.

How much co er do you need ?  Van aken and borner is enough surely 

Well it was said you need 5 when you play two centre halves as they are more prone to injury and suspension in that position. We have said two people fighting for every position so we are one defender down by that yard stick.Van Aken has surprised with some good play including defending so far but Borher not been at best to date. Lees, Dunkley both injury prone looking at appearance record. Van Aken also had lengthy absence due to injury and think he also picked up knocks last season.

Dunkley we have not seen so far. We were looking for another centre back so coaches must have some concern. Yes pleased so far but unconvinced we do not need another bod.

Mckenna who is linked with Forest is very good player by the way.We had bid for him last year of £3 million which was turned down.

Bet he wishes he hadn’t left Leeds.

After initial spell at Leeds has not looked same player. Even after sale to Tottenham whilst on loan at Leeds looked less of a player.

I think we were in for Clarke-Salter, hence the decision to make Van Aken available for transfer, but maybe Chelsea decided to sell instead of loan? Since then, Van Aken has come back into the fold. That’s not to say we can’t upgrade, but we should have enough with those 5, plus Urhoghide, who is actually a right sided centre back. Maybe sign another one for the U23s, who could act as cover, if we had an injury crisis

Just for record how many of those are available currently? We are thin in this area.Nobody has been in for Van Aken,his improved form is a much needed bonus for club and says something about coachinghe has received in Germany or from new coaching set up. Lees has also looked much better.

I have more hope for Shaw or Brennan as a centre back than Osaze but not sure you could rely on any permenatly at this stage.

We also have Palmer who can play in a three, but if Dunkley’s injury drags on, we will be a bit stretched. By all accounts, the spine of the U23 side, is a real weakness, according to those who regularly watch them. Both Shaw and Brennan are midfielders who ended up filling in there. Perhaps now we’ve switched to a back three at development level, we can better accommodate that type of player. At that level, we do lack a dominant centre back.

Yes I agree about U/23 side that was true last year. Palmer would be suitableagainst some sides but against sides who have towering forwards he is not the answer. My point is we look short if you do some analysis.

Our lack of recruitment in our U23s is embarrassing, we should regularly be signing 7/8/9 released premier league academy players on the proviso that they have a second chance and can push to our 1st team if they do well. Players like Alex Denny, Dion McGhee, Justen Kranthove all had good reputations but are still on frees.
