Summer Transfer Window 2019

Recommended Posts

If Norwich are promoted Hanley who has only played 8 games this season could be available. He’s big and can head. I wonder if we could get him on loan or outright. I feel ideal in our situation knows the club and can lead. Also has a bit of aggression added in

Add to Hanley with Bauer the Charlton lad. Lenihan Wharton and Mulgrew. That’s cb sorted. Now just the fullbacks goalkeeper, effective wingers and Graham’s understudy. I’ll look at that between appts this aft. Football management easy.

Is Wharton better than Magloire? I feel he has moved ahead in the pecking order as things stand

Scott Wharton has been given a handful of appearances in league 2 at Bury. In a bizarre move the club considers such a deal as decent business, clearly, because he's been farmed out 3 seasons in a row to act as a rotation player. He will be 22 by the time he lands back here by which time his only notable experience is a squad player at League 2. 

Frustrating really. In the couple of appearances he had for us I thought he looked a solid enough performer and I have always heard good things from those that watch youth level. I am not against loan moves for experience but there's no way he has learnt more in his season at Bury this year than he would have done had he stayed with us.

Probably only due to immediate availability.

For what it's worth I really like the look of Wharton, give him a season in league one next year and see if he's ready/good enough for the Championship after that - he's still only 21 so as a centre back he's worth giving time.

Problem is though, if he's barely playing when he's out on loan in League 2, it seems unlikely next season that he'll get in a team on a weekly basis a division higher.....

I work with a Bury fan who says he looks their best defender by a mile. They only signed him in January & might've missed one or two games through a niggle. First centre back on the team sheet otherwise I believe.

That's fair enough. Based on his time at Lincoln he was always a bit part player but if Bury are proposing to play him every week then it's a better deal.

At 21 I'd prefer him to be plying his trade in League 1 but at least Bury win almost every week so he's not gone to get battered and bruised all the time.

Is the fact that he isn't getting into these League 2 teams not telling? 

Edit

Ok, i have noticed a few posters after you saying he is more than a squad player at Bury

I find it extremely odd that Wharton has never been given a chance here. I thought he looked excellent all things considered when Coyle gave him a chance but then he got relegated down the pecking order after the useless Wes Brown was signed. 

He must be suffering from Jack O' Connell syndrome. It's even weirder he never even saw the light of day here.

I wouldnt want to see Magloire playing in our first team any time soon. He seemingly cannot head a ball for a start. May need to spend some time on loan.

Hanley would be a terrific signing but also I cannot see that one happening.

I think a big injury at the wrong time. If he'd been fit at the start of last season you'd think he would've got a few games earlier on in the season when the defence wasn't set in stone and before Downing had come in for Ward.

On the rovers page of NewsNow there's a LT article heading saying we've taken a non league striker on trial. The link doesn't work though when you click in it. Looks like the article was removed. Did anyone see who the striker was?

I hope it is macauley bonne. Never seen him play but a few podcasts I listen to were raving about him. I think mentioned it a while back. 

As for wharton it definitely has the jack o Connelly feel to it. I can't remember seeing an u23 so ready for first team football. Absolutely baffled by that one

The thing is Wharton might be fed-up being shunted out every season and prefer to tale his own chances with another club.

One criticism of TM that resonates with is that he takes too long to give promising youngsters their chance.

Presumably all part of the "esprit de coeur" he tries to create. Translation-----too loyal to his senior players when they don't produce.

Taylor Allen from Nuneaton is who we have on trial.

Best I can find...18 yr old striker who only joined them from Romulus (4 tiers lower than Nuneaton) in January. 9 appearances for Nuneaton, no goals (I think), one assist. MoM on his debut.

Was on trial with Leicester a week ago.

Surely this kind of link should be in the Academy thread?

This can’t be the kind of player Mowbray is looking to bring in for the first team.
