Julian Bennett is too good for league 2, why would he go there?

Agree2 Disagree3

Why the f**k would I know why he is going there. I just got told he was. We certainly dont need him.

Agree3 Disagree0

He certainly wasn't good enough regularly for us in League 1, why not league 2? Rotherham are a team with new investment and it might do him good to get some games.
I know if I were a current league 1 manager with a team that played against us last year, Julian Bennett would not be on my wishlist, and he can forget being good enough for the Championship!

Agree4 Disagree2

Bennett was injured alot of the season, therefore couldn't put a run of games together, his long throw came in handy when he played, you need games to be consistent something he didn't get,
Someone told you he was going to Rotherham so just a b******t story with no facts about it then!

Agree1 Disagree0

Bennett is defo L2 standard!

Agree0 Disagree1

I totally agree that Julian Bennett didn't play well for us but some players don't suit certain teams look at Michael Morrison he was absolute garbage for us and a class act for Charlton he got voted as best Centre Half in League 1.

Dave Jones has admitted we are speaking to preston about Danny Mayor (source: Rob Staton)

Believable16 Unbelievable5

This is looking close now, does anybody know if he is good? Bothroyd rumours seem more implausible, no doubt he would be a good player but it feels like we are lacking pace up front if anything!

Agree2 Disagree1

Looks like the 2 strikers are the Barca B player and this kid from Everton - fingers crossed these other clubs have missed something in these kids

Agree1 Disagree1

My reading of Jones interview was that Mayor was done deal. Boothroyd was unlikely. Rodri they were certainly in for and Corry was a possible (too dismissive). I am probably wrong but good guessing game. Wish he had asked about Baxter.

Agree2 Disagree1

Danny Mayor's wiki page = senior playing career 2008-2012 Preston, 2012- Sheff Wed, (someone been jumping the gun or do wiki know something we don't?)

Agree2 Disagree1

Jose Baxter having a medical, ex Everton striker

Believable11 Unbelievable8

Radio sheffield say deals done

Agree1 Disagree9

Doesnt exactly look prolific :o(

Agree3 Disagree3

Would be interesting but I've heard nothing about it

Agree2 Disagree2

Prolific ?? - he's 20yo ?
All the prolific 20yo (if there are any?) are at ManU, Barca, Real or similar and not available on frees!!
He's got great potential and thats what DJ is buying in to .

Agree4 Disagree1

Radio sheffield say deals done lie lie lie lie lie lie lie lie

According to a Barcelona source on Twitter, Barcelona (B) Striker Rodri a 22 Year old forward will sign for Sheffield Wednesday with thought to a permanent deal. The 22 year old has no chance of breaking into Barcelonas main squad and is reaching an age that will be considered to old for Barcacelonas B team.

All over twitter that the owls are clos to signing former everton striker young Jose Baxter, previously on loan at Tranmere. Also 22 year-old Barcaelona B striker Rodri is meant to be signing on loan. Jones say Bothroyd will be unlikely to prize from the prem.

Believable6 Unbelievable2

Covey got a first contract with the massive .. Merton owls

Agree7 Disagree1

I fear if this is true our strike force is weak none of our strikers have much experience in the championship

Agree4 Disagree2

Twins rich and Jon bailey having trials

Surely we will sign somebody today! Hopefully jay bothroyd, proven at this level.

Believable4 Unbelievable1

Jay bothroyd a no go, for 1 million as well! we will probably offer 350k

Agree5 Disagree2

Bothroyd on season loan!

Agree3 Disagree4

I am being very patient but I wish I weren't

Agree3 Disagree1

Says in sheff star we could be getting him on loan.. let's hope so, can't understand why we giving koumas a place to train though. If he still had it someone would've snapped him up last summer or after Christmas. I'd approach Bullard for some experience... Bullard, boothroyd batth and treacy would do for me

Agree2 Disagree5

Wednesday set to sign a player called roderi from barca

Agree2 Disagree0

Dnt need to sign some one every day its not like footy man, it takes longer than 5 minutes

Agree4 Disagree1
