Jack Baldwin would certainly be a decent upgrade on Manny Monthe...

Unless we're playing three at the back, I cannot see why we'd be signing two more centre backs when we have three already, and Odimayo can play there too. Surely one must be leaving (maybe Magloire as he's always injured?)

Jon said a few times last season he wanted to go to 3 at the back more often but couldn't
It's why we brought Max back off loan early and he had that cameo away at Cambridge in a back 3

Why Sowers and McGowan all had stints in a back 3.
Guthrie, Magloire, Willis with Odimayo and Lintott being part timers isnt a strong enough core if you want options and to allow for injuries/fitness/suspension

Id guess theyre trying to injury proof the squad a bit more. Will Willis Odimayo Magloire always be available? Most likely not

I wouldn't be surprised to see us play 3 at the back more regularly this season, it gives Koiki more of a license to get forward at wing back. Then 2 in midfield (possibly Sowerby and McGeehan) and 3 across the front.

Yeah I understand the need for cover given previous injury records, but I'd imagine Guthrie, Willis and Magloire are all on decent money already, so adding another two (one of which you hinted will be a higher earner) seems crazy unless there are outgoings. I'd have thought maybe one more in and then a cheap loan option would suffice? But what do I know!

We have lost Monthe and Sherring, so two in and two out seems fair and balanced for the squad. Technically with Moore going we're still one lighter.

The Goode comments are embarassing, I agree, but it looks like its mostly a group of teenagers doing it, so sometimes you've just got to ignore it a bit. Same with all the other weird twitter banter you get from other teams after full time results - it's not adults making the inane comments, so dont take it to heart too much.

Interesting that Baldwin isn't the 'higher earner defender' ... hope we pull that deal off. (I reckon he might be left footed as Guthrie is the only one we have atm)

But a strong defensive unit already. especially if they all keep fit.

which they won't but.

"Dont think he had his best season, and Nightengale is pretty much the same player - undersized, mobile centre back.   Lovely fella, did the club proud off the pitch."

"Calamity Jack... overall not that bothered... When he first came in he looked a real good signing, then for a large part looked horrendous, but I thought he finished really strong and would have been happy to keep him this season. "
 
"Solid enough centre half who I would have rather we kept, as said above he was very respectful off the pitch and fitted in well with the club, Id install nightingale as captain and give him the central berth in the back 5 think hes a better player than Baldwin "

Remember we've also let Dyche go on loan for the season, so that's another wage free'd up...

Appreciate he won't have been on loads, but it's a release of another wage, however much...

Once more CB to come in hopefully!  Wink

Baldwin signing makes a lot of sense. Versatile, a 'leader' and plenty of experience. Could cover injuries/suspensions etc across the whole back line.

So that's 19 players in what is starting to look like a really nice balanced squad.

Id like to see...

1. A very decent centre back brought in to START every game if fit. Alongside Guthrie. Direct replacement for Sherring but hopefully an upgrade.

2. A young big prospect from the prem (probably) to directly replace Leonard. Again, someone who we assume will start if fit.

3. A versatile midfielder, maybe someone who is reasonably experienced. We need competition for the 4 we've got currently on board.

4. A big number9. Bowie ideally!!!  Wink  I live in hope.

5. A versatile forward (again, Id hope for someone who is definitely league1 proven) who can play across a front3.

That would leave us with 2 keepers, 10 defenders, 6 midfielders and 6 attackers. Perfect for either 5-2-3, 5-3-2, 4-3-3 or even a 4-4-2.

IF and its a big IF (I am not in the know one jot) 3 of these last 5 are going to make up the spine of the team, Id be confident of another good season at this level, potentially better than last season.

Bowie - a big number?!?!?! bonkers.

I would have thought he would fit more into point 5 - but i would want an improvement on him for this season

He's 6 foot 2! The days are gone having a lump up front. Fine for a plan B but not too start...

Id want my man down the middle to be able to drift outside if necessary. Rotate with the other forwards etc. Bowie I see as a central striker more so than not and someone who will massively improve next season. In my opinion, we should do everything we can to get him in, and probably spend a big proportion of the budget both in a fee and obviously wages to secure him. We could profit from him massively in 12 months time if it works out well. Of course...Im playing football manager here! For me, he's our current fruit machine. We've invested in him for 2 years, next year he will pay out. Id like that to be with us!
 
If we got Boewie in, I'd be less fussed with the other strikers quality. If Eaves (from the ones mentioned) is seen more of a plan B then fine....get him in. He would certainly add a different dimension to our options. BUT If our marquis attacking signing is an 'old boy' then Id be disappointed. Id like to see us g@mble a bit with the additional budget and see if we can make a few quid down the road. AKA some of our rivals.

I agree with the comments here about Charlie Goode, but people always look back to ex players when they have nothing else to offer. And then lap up, what some spotty brat who claims to be an "agent", tweets from his bedroom. All the brat is interested in, is the amount of hits that he gets.
As for the new bloke, never heard of him.

Baldwin has had a pretty decent career but the comments on the division 1 forum from Bristol Rovers fans and those from Ross County aren't very positive. I suppose we can forgive for playing for Posh, he was younger then and knew not what he was doing.

I hope he's back-up. To think we paid money for him
