    Normally be against this and calling it lazy planning and a lack of proper vision from the scouting department, but * it. We badly need a better quality of midfielder. Ideally we'd get another more creative one in along with him.

    Bring him home

    Usually I'd say the same but beggers can't be choosers as the saying goes

    I get that but I’d rather we sign 3 good defenders and a goalkeeper first.

    No I’d be totally against this
    Goes against everything we are doing at the moment. I absolutely do not want us to sign a proven premiership international
    I want us to stick to our policy of
    - someone under 21
    - limited experience
    - under 5 ft 7
    - preferably about 9 stone
    - very quiet personality
    - no leadership qualities
    I’d rather stick with that plan

    Is he prone to yelling at other players, or getting into arguments?

    I think it’s a no brainier, the way ange wants to play we need a sitter in middle of the park.

    If he’s fit he goes straight in the team for me, I’m afraid soro doesn’t seem to be the answer in that area from recent performances.

    Alternatively I’d like to see Shaw get his chance.

    We'd be mental to turn down a guy of McCarthy's quality if it's a go-er.

    We've lost Broony and Ntcham, without replacing them in the squad. He could definitely do us a job for a few seasons while Robertson develops.

    This site's transfer forum is a depressing place. I click every few days expecting new links with exciting names, and Christ alive man.

    When fit an in form he is a £5m + player. Given that he is a free and our squad is threadbare we would be mad not to offer him a one year deal

    This could be an astute under the radar signing for us, not flashy but a very effective player at what he does, nearly 300 EPL appearences, brings a wealth of experience and still just 30. On a free, it's a no brainer.

    If we did sign him, theres nothing astute or clever about it.

    Its a body we should have had in the door for the start of pre season. Guys been hiding in plain sight.

    We should have signed him when Lawell decided to go for ki.

    Not now, injury prone, stay away.

    I would agree with that, I was talking in a business sense.

    Nearly 300 Premier League appearences doesn't scream injury prone to me.

    Pretty sure it was mentioned that he was averaging about under 15 games per season for the past 5 or 6 years.

    Im pretty sure one of the injuries he got was a shocker and left him out for over 5 months. Its hard to hold that against the guy.

    Edit : It was a double leg break sustained from blocking a Rondon shot. Tbf mosy peoples legs would have exploded taking a hot from that unit.
