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 ?

Explain the team’s long term ambitions. Good luck with that.

No, we should have signed him and Winnall and not Rhodes.

Ideally, yep, but there was uproar from Barnsley when Winnall signed for us and it looked like that put them of selling Hourihane to us as well.

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

If we play a three man central midfield they're both good enough players to fit in anywhere in that three I'm sure.

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

I think we need to keep Shaw in the starting line up. Our best midfielder at the moment. If we did get Hourihane, then he could take Luongo's spot as he's never fit for long.

Yes I think they are, alongside a Hutchinson type, but we’d still require sh@t hot centre forward if we wanted to play with wingers To have a pairing up front, it would have to be one winger, or reverting to three at the back, and using wing backs. I’m certainly not in favour of that Perhaps using the Carlos system could work, though there’d be no room for someone breaking into the box, the role that Lee did so well. However, you are right, they are both good enough players to play together, but it would mean some sacrifices to get them both into the same side

We should have signed him rather than Winnall years ago.

 

Barnsley wouldn't sell him to us after the Winnall deal

Hourihane himself said that Wednesday wanted him to run his contract down and sign on a free, whereas Villa stumped up so he went there.

Would be a great signing adding goals and creativity to the midfield but he needs to be signed now not the 1st February which will mean we won't get him.

Liam Shaw as back up!!! You are joking. He's one of our best players.

Didn't we put a derisory bid in for him along the lines of the Winnall deal , Barnsley turned it down cos the 6 fingered lot got angry and then Villa blew us out of the water with their offer so he went there?

 

Either way, he never ended up coming

Let’s not get ahead of ourselves, he’s a young lad who’s had a couple of good performances in the centre back role. He certainly has the attributes, and natural ability to operate in midfield, maybe even as a box to box player, but he will need to show more consistency Great prospect though

He's currently outplaying the rest in midfield - persist with him he'll only get better. Yes, he will have bad games, but which of our midfield aren't consistently having bad games. Shaw would be first midfielder on the team sheet at the moment.

Yep. We were saving up for our star striker signing that window. Wonder how that turned out... :ph34r:

No chance, we won’t be in for him, it’s a waste of a wage. We’ll save the wedge and use it on permanent signings, loaning players is for mugs.

He will be out of our budget. 
 

Even if Villa subsidise his wages, a club will come in with better budget than us to negotiate a deal. 
 

If we are going to comply with FFP then accepting we have a bottom half championship budget has to be the reality.
