Obviously I'm only guessing, but I can't see this one happening.

I think this lad will sign he probably wanted to come in summer but Brighton blocked the move also confident we will sign Keogh on loan.

Can't see us bringing two strikers in unless Ings leaves in January, which I think we'd be mad to consider.

Ings will stay, and we'll bring a striker in, hopefully a midfielder too.

I'm with you in terms of what I'd like to see LC - at least one striker and one CM.

Not so sure we won't sell Ings, assuming we get a good offer - though I hope we can at least keep him until summer



"A truth’s initial commotion is directly proportional to how deeply the lie was believed. It wasn’t the world being round that agitated people, but that the world wasn’t flat. When a well-packaged web of lies has been sold gradually to the masses over generations, the truth will seem utterly preposterous and its speaker a raving lunatic."

If Ings did go, how would Vokes do? Just asking like

I was only saying this last night Colin. It's the partnership of laying the ball off from Vokes and the movement of Ings which has made them so successful. If Ings was to go it's not easy to build that partnership up quickly with another striker mid way through the season.
The Watford game were Arfield was in for Ings proved that.

Wouldn't be surprised to see us bring in two strikers.

That and a midfielder would be good business.

To me this looks like Barne's agent using our interest to screw a better contract offer from Brighton or from another club. The only reason he'd sign for us is if we could offer him more than Brighton, or any other club interested, will pay him. And I can't see that happening. Unless of course we sell Ings, then anything's possible.

He's had a contract on offer since August apparently.

Like you say either agent is using us or we've been given some encouragement.

Seems most now would be happy with that one striker signing.

Back in the Summer I remember saying over and over, after Austin left, we needed another striker and another striker only....back then though most thought I was talking shite in saying thats all we need and will do alright anyway.

Many would have said we still needed a backup centre mid as Stock was incapable of playing more than 6 seconds.

Two strikers and a midfielder is what we need. But no chance of us signing 3 players this month.

I know it means nothing until the deal is done, but the Barnes situation appears to be fairly advanced by the looks of things.

Some interesting (and ignorant) thoughts here. They seem to really rate him and his style is very much in the Sean Dyche mould.

"My prediction is that in two weeks time Barnes will play against us in EXACTLY the same manner as he has played 100 times FOR us – work hard, win a load of high balls, win some free kicks, tackle back, miss a good chance, then score a tidy winner, and that afterwards 48 morons on NSC will each type exactly the same post, along the lines of “Why the fu(k did he never play like that for us?”

Sean Dyche confirms that striker Ashley Barnes is having a medical ahead of a proposed move to Burnley Football Club.

This was in Wkipedia, is it true?

"On 9 March 2013, Barnes received a red card in stoppage time against Bolton Wanderers for attempting to trip up the referee. He was subsequently handed a seven-match suspension by the Football Association.[18] Fans and manager Gus Poyet were critical of Barnes for this action as it left the club with only one senior striker available to play, as Craig Mackail-Smith and Will Hoskins were already injured for the rest of the season. On his return from the ban on 20 April, Barnes scored two goals in a 6–1 win over Blackpool F.C., and was named man of the match."

Sounds very much like a Sean Dyche kind of player.

Dyche was on R. Lancs an hour ago, he didn't want to talk about Barnes but he confirmed he was down Gawthorpe having a medical.

Now lets go and sign Ya Ya Toure!

He's a bit slack at the back but would be a good back up for Jones or Marney when they pick up a couple of silly bookings.


City are looking to offload him cos he's cack and they want an all action box to box play maker in the mould of Brain Stock. Plus a Toure plus cash offer in our favour might give us a bit of bite to be able to sign a keeper that we so desparately need.

Thoughts?

As a player he'll give you his all, and occasionaly frustrate the hell out of you with a silly foul or temper tantrum. But off the pitch he is a 100% not bad. I had the pleasure of meeting him at an end of season sponsors dinner at Brighton a couple of years ago, his team mates were ribbing him as he was so young, married and with kids, he was a pipe smoking slipper wearing family man at the age of 22.

Sorry Phil, at the time I wrote that I just had something in the back of my head about him getting into trouble and it turns out it was the referee tripping incident, not anything off the pitch. My apologies, I'm sure he's a perfectly sound lad and with his reputed work ethic he's going to be very popular with our fans as well.
