What makes people think Arsenal would send Saliba up north to a club who started the season on -12 I'll never know. If he came down to the Championship they'd offer him to Brentford, Watford, maybe Bournemouth and Norwich. That's the sad reality but it's not about us being slow off the mark to try get a player like this. It's simply massively unrealistic.

 

I for one would be delighted with Flint anyway, another massive character with plenty of fight in him. 

Agree it is unrealistic. This is the kind of signing we could and should have been in for when we were playing nice football and in the playoff mix in the early period under CC. 


Now we have no chance of signing Saliba.

Liam Palmer may be open to a loan move away from Sheffield Wednesday. The midfielder, 29, fears his Scotland chances will be hit if the Owls continue to keep him on the sidelines. 

Only about 8 years too late. Load of carp like Monk will pick him when he can but would love us to sell him hes never been good enough for this level IMO.

Can’t see us getting flint 

Much depends if Iorfa is on the move, could be why we are suddenly looking at centre backs,.

If watford lose dawson to west ham and they go for iorfa then I can definitely see eus going  for flint .... looks like the young lad we got who injured against qpr is going to be out for a long time ... don't know the extent of lees injury .... if we on top of that lose iorfa them we need to prob make 2 signings in that area

That's the only scenario I could see us going for flint as a short term first team ready stop gap. 

 

If we're not losing Iorfa, I'd rather we focused on the type of players like Sanderson etc

Cant see that being a very reliable sources considering Liam Palmers not been a midfielder for 7-8 years.

 

He’s been carrying this back issue for a while which is why he’s been in and out the side. 

A non-story.

I'd be surprised if that happened.

 

We need Palmer as he's a very useful squad player who can slot into a variety of positions.

 

I can't imagine he'd be first choice right-back for too many Championship clubs either, so unless he's considering dropping to League One, he might find his chances are limited. Would that improve his chances with Scotland, though?

 

I totally agree, save for a side like Rotherham, Palmer wouldn't be getting anywhere near any Championship XI

Is Lees injured or just a typing error?

I don’t think signing premier league youngsters from Chelsea or Arsenal with a handful or no professional appearances is beneficial in our situation 

 

We need experienced championship pros

See derby after Austin and we’re after Zahore personally prefer to go for Austin 

Rather have Grosicki than either of those two to be fair and could bring the lad in from Man City and still have change.

I said it was very unlikely, but should be putting ourselves forward anyway. Especially because we are one of few clubs who would guarantee him game time.

 

We also signed Izzy Brown when in reality I would have thought we stand very little chance. 
 

It was never mooted as a realistic option, but look his paper work to France has fallen through. Take a punt. When I suggested it I had no idea they would even loan to the championship which it now appears they will do.

 

If we have money and can offer game time we are in with a shout if plenty of loans. We aren’t some random crappy club playing league 2 football.

Someone like flint is what we have needed at the back since Chansiri arrived. Not cultured enough for Carlos but when Brighton added Duffy to their back four they really kicked on whilst we didn’t. 
 

If we are playing it out the back I’m not sure he’s right for that and nor has he had much pace but just in terms of your archetype centre half battler who wins 90% of battles and gets the odd goal he is great at that

I get the age references to past issues in the transfer market but sometimes if you want an older player anywhere it is at centre half. They can play for longer and it is that experience that helps as we saw with Loovens in his early 30s.

 

A cheaper and younger option to flint would be Sonny Bradley at Luton. He’s from East Yorkshire and is a very similar player to flint.

Potentially a massive week coming up. So important we get at least a couple more players in to give ourselves a chance of getting out of this mess. Personally hope we have moved on from Zohore.
