    Cheers for that Dead , perhaps he'll join us next summer for nowt as he's in the last year of his contract , injured at moment as well.

    Much will depend on the player I think with this potential signing. In last year of contract and I imagine would like the switch to us. If he starts to play up and engineer a move I feel it might happen but if he's a good boy and let's the club deal with it I suspect we won't get him. However. January could change all that.
  • Options
    Could be a good bet for January when his price will drop considerably as his contract runs down and especially if we still need a couple of signings for a final push in the run in.
  • Options
    Get him in!

    How good is he?

    I think the goings on at Col U have been a bit weird over this one.  First John Ward denied we'd made an offer saying that he was on holiday and no-one had contacted him.  Then he retracted that saying there was a offer but their chairman hadn't said anything to him about it.  Then it all went quiet for a couple of weeks until their local rag ran an article that was like a come and get him plea.  I don't think anyone else has been in for him, maybe because of the injury he had that kept him out for most of last season.  It seems to me that they think we've got money and are trying to get more money than he's worth in his current shape.

    We can't afford to sign players that are good but are going to spend most of their time in the treatment room , its a false economy and a waste of wages.
  • Options
    can somebody find me this come and get me article?
  • Options
    Here's the article I was referring to, but on second reading I think I may have read too much between the lines.  I originally took it to be "bloody hell, why haven't Ipswich and Reading been on the phone", but on second read maybe it's a more genuine "no-one's been in for him".

    if we want him we will get him ...we need a leader at the back with a little speed.

  • Options
    He hasn't got any speed. People are bigging him up based on the game he played against us a couple of years back. I was at that game - we were absolutely f***ing dreadful - one of the worst performance I've ever seen us put in. He didn't have to do anything - it's easy to look commanding when the opposition don't turn up. Col U fan at work thinks he's slow, and, bar a decent first few months with them, has looked error-prone and slow.

    No thanks.

    They should be quite happy to sell him to us then - I must say I have seen him a few times and like him.

    was that the 3-0 drubbing play off season? 
    if so totally agree llera gave me nightmares that night. couldn't handle odjayie and sodje came on and won everything.

    i'd like osbourne in, young and quick to go with taylor
  • Options
    Can't this guy play right back too? Thought I read that somewhere.
  • Options
    We need a strong right back now. I cant bare to have another season with francis. Solly is a good prospect but just needs some strength.

  • Options
    Solly is more that fine at RB.

    We have Taylor the physical first ball CH.  Legge plays that role at Brentford so his partner Osbourne (more mobile) would seem an ideal pairing.

    But plenty more fish in the sea.  We don't have to just buy league one players.
  • Options
    who knows solly might be bulked up by end of pre season!
  • Options

    Solly always seems to be better in the air than his height would suggest he'd be.

    I'd be happy going in to the season with him as first choice.

     

  • Options
    Sollly would be better in a good team. I think he's one of those players that would really make the step up so if we put good players around him, he'll shine
  • Options
    If Solly is first choice, Francis is by definition second choice. We need another RB between Francis and the team! ;)

    Chris Solly is not the biggest, and so to make it through you have to have something about you.

    What I like especially about Solly is his decision making. To me Solly thinks like a proper footballer. It is sometimes not the wisest way to judge a player in the melee of a game as in 'he's good under pressure'. Bill Shankly once said 'don't judge a player by how he copes under pressure, but by what he does when he's not under pressure' i.e. if you have time to think, do you still balls it up?

  • Options
    I know against the grain but I would not object to Solly and Francis vying for the rb role, both would do a job.
  • Options

    This is the key signing to get right.

    We need two really good quality CB's to escape this awful league next season.

    With a very solid defence and BWP up front we could have items of (large) furniture in midfield and still make the play-offs.

    No good having the Harlem globetrotters in midfield and dear old Doc slipping all over the place and panting evertime he gets above walking pace at the back . A great pro but his best days were long ago.

    Get this signing wrong and the rest are irrelevant. We will be  playing pretty football and conceding from every corner and free kick and losing to the likes of Oldham and Notts County all over again.

    And depending on which one is playing, would be getting my 100% support. Before coming to us francis was quite highly rated at this level. Who knows, maybe this season he'll show us just what he's made of. Solly gets the nod for me at the moment though.

    Totally agree, Seth.

    He definitely has a  brain IMHO - at times you wonder about some of his colleagues.
