8 for 3 places , but a few are injury prone , Gibson probably end up going back . Few are versatile too so may be utilised in other positions . 

 

Don't forget Sow, Mendez-Laing, Brown, and Johnson.

Hang on, everybody has been screaming we need a centre back and now suddenly we're overrun with em.

Whoever comes in will only be required to end of the season or until the injury crisis eases or he turns out to be a star.

Short term we need a decent centre back that's going to see the season out.

Can't this lad play at L/B?.

He played at Left Back on loan at Rochdale in L1 a few times but mainly Centre Back so probably good fit for Left Centre Half role. Attracted interest from Leeds previously before signing a new BHA contract so much have something about him.

He is left footed, 1.84m

 

On his time at Rochdale when he was 18...

 

“There was a couple of times where I was playing against 6ft 6in strikers and went into challenges where I could have been smarter. But as the season went on I learned to stand my ground and understand that you can’t win every header.

“I am a different player to what I was. I am stronger, quicker. I want to play in the Premier League and the year has given me a better idea of what I need to do to improve my chances of doing that.

“My strengths are as a ball-playing defender. League One was a bit more direct, you need to be physically and mentally strong.

Send Gibson back, been a waste of a loan so far. 

Palmer reverts to rotating with either left of right back.

Should we be signing players like him to play ahead of Brennan? Personally I think Brennan looks very capable at this level. 


I think it shows that the club is serious about getting out the division.

 

Agreed with the principle of starting your own youth players, but Roberts is a better prospect and better player.

 

Hopefully we can get Brennan out on loan for game time like we have Alex Hunt.
