Lenny’s not a Premier league standard centre half. West Brom maybe. I’m not a Khadra fan, another one that dribbles when he comes to a pair of feet.

 Khedra does have the whiff of the headless chicken about him but he was a big miss in the run-in. He has real pace, which terrifies opponents and left us too one dimensional up front.

Plenty of useful frees knocking about. Take with a pinch of salt as some may have 12 month options like Brereton.

I would be looking Luton's right back James Bree, Fulham centre back Alfie Mawson, Reading centre back Tom Holmes and Bristol City left side midfielder Callum O'Dowda

There will be a whole range of clubs after him but Scot Twine banged in 4 goals for Mk Dons at the weekend. I think he has something like 33 goals + assists for the season now at the age of 22. As it stands we wouldn't have a hope of getting him since if he's to move on I'm sure he'll have his pick of a few clubs. But he's the type of player that if we did have the club in order, with a new and attractive manager and backroom team in place quickly, we could be swooping in for him.

As you say there’ll be lots of clubs after him unfortunately.

I would be looking at Callum Brittain from Barnsley as Nyambe's replacement. Another player I would be looking at is Oxford's midfielder Cameron Brannagan. 

Brannigan is going the nobbers I hear.

There'll be fury if Lenihan rocks up at the Dingles.

Will there? With who?

He’s just a second tier run of the mill clogger to me, suppose it shows how little connection I have with players these days, even one that’s come through the academy to be captain.

I think Rovers should at least inquire about signing Khadra and/or maybe Poveda permanent or on loan again. In a functioning team, I think both would be effective. Van Hecke too but not sure about valuation and availability. Might well be they have higher aspirations and offers.

Khadra and Poveda I’d take on loan but I wouldn’t be signing them. Van Hecke, I’d sign if we can get him.

Agreed with enquiring, JPVH will be a premier league footballer next season though.

Would definitely take Khadra on a permanent deal. Has lots to offer and can turn into a real player. Stretches the opposition and has a good right peg. Decision making not the best, as pointed out.

 

Wouldn't mind Semenyo from Bristol City or O'Hare from Coventry, not sure about O'Hares price tag though.

I reckon like Shane Duffy Lenihan is a better player than people give him credit for. Out of the trio who are leaving (Lenihan, Nymabe, Rothwell) Lenihan is the one who will get a modest Prem career in my opinion.

Agree with this. He seems to be sensing danger and reading the game much better this season - I always thought he was one of those defenders who look the part when going in for challenges, but they often only need to do that to make up for lapses in concentration.

 

Nyambe and Rothwell both have important aspects to their game which will be hard to replace, but Lenihan is the best player of the three by a decent margin for me.

Sometimes he goes in for challenges when he shouldn’t. He gets carried away with natural enthusiasm. He leaves the guy he’s marking to fire fight, does quite make the challenge and his guy is left un marked. He should have learnt years ago  “ do your job and let the other players do theirs ”.

I think that's right, but it's much less a feature of his game than it used to be. He seems much more disciplined in his decision making now than he was even 1-2 years ago. I think the penny might've dropped a little earlier had he been paired with a wiser head in defence earlier in his career. I know Mulgrew was experienced but he was never really a defensive leader in that sense.
