He’s a good player, got a goal or two in him as well.

It begs the question, who’s there to sell the club to him and explain the teams long term ambitions ?

Imagine a midfield three of Bannan, Luongo and Hourihane - with Liam Shaw as back-up... 

 

Hopefully we at least throw our hat into the ring

That'd probably be our wage offer....Pulis' old hat and a packet of quavers 😀

We should have signed him rather than Winnall years ago.


He wanted to come as well.

Would be an excellent option at most clubs in this division, but where would he fit in here? He plays left central midfield, exactly where Bannan plays, and that’s probably the reason he didn’t come before.

Absolutely 0 chance he'll come here.

 

He'll have his pick of the championship clubs and probably a couple of Premier League ones too.

Bannan could play central (the "quarterback" role) or even right central.

 

Surely this lad could play down the middle as well?

I'm not far from Brum. I can pick him up from their training ground and deliver him if the club want me to.

 

My car is off the road at the minute but I'd be happy to give him a piggy back to Sheffield.

 

Proper midfielder. Would be a great signing.

No, I meant that they both favour the same role centrally, using their left foot to dictate play from deep It’s a shame, but I don’t see us being able to incorporate the two, unless we abandon the idea of playing with wingers, and move Bannan to left, similar to the role he had under Carlos

Would be a great signing but a centre forward and left back have to be our priorities.

 

If we get them in and have some money to spare and he’d be interested in joining a club with no manager... it’d be a top signing. Lots of ifs there though, he’ll go somewhere else
