No pretty sure he meant we are still on Plan A. The post he was quoting described Foderingham as Plan B, which Bbrovers has also said previously (and that we might sign both).

No, you’ve read it wrong, Rangers goalie is plan B or as a second goalie, first choice is the unknown plan A, quite a few thinking Carson, but could be anybody 😀

I've been told on very high authority that that is completely unrealistic! Far be it from me to suggest that you are setting up TM to fail. :rolleyes:

So nobody is leaving on either a loan or sale?

Hopefully he's not the only defender.  

Couldn't agree more. He could prove to be a very welcome addition, but I'd be somewhat disappointed if he turns out to be our only acquisition for the back 4.

Earlier in the window, Sharpe said that Bauer and a young option were our top priorities. So, am assuming this is our young option and that we're still on for a more experienced CB.

I'd forgotten that. Easily done when there is so much drip feed via twitter, here, and other sources. But yeah, timely reminder. Cheers! Let's hope it comes to fruition.

Interesting day ahead. Adarabioyo is the young loan and Foderingham looks like the ‘other’ keeper being brought in. But that still leaves the no.1 Keeper Target (expected on loan / free) and an experienced CB to be conformed....

The Keeper is reportedly Carson but I think there’s potentially a massive twist here because of how quiet they’re keeping it. Sharpe doesn’t think their first choice is Carson anyway....

The defender has been rumoured to be Dann or Skrtel but again I think this is wide open..

What I am quietly confident about with the targets in mind, the references that TM made about Sheff United and the intro of Jonty into the first team squad is that we are developing into a three at the back with wing backs team. 

RCB - LCB = Adayarabioyo / Nyambe / Lenihan / New / Mulgrew / Williams. 

That leaves Magloire and Grayson to go on loan and play 30 odd games with a view to coming back next season. Wharton isn’t good enough imo.

Wing backs - Bennett / JRC - Bell / Hart

Hopefully whatever deals that are done will keep the fans happy and make the team stronger

It's also been said on here that if we bring Foderingham in TM wouldn't be as concerned about bringing in plan A. So Foderingham could potentially be it, which would be disastrous in my view. Not a good enough #1 and nowhere near an upgrade on Raya. Getting a bit concerned now.

I don’t particularly rate either Bennett or Bell as out and out fullbacks but I do think they’re both very well suited as wing backs tbh.

I think it’s very likely now that we’ll get both. 

But either way, In terms of what we are looking for, Foderingham would absolutely be an upgrade on Raya. Experienced, dominant keeper.

LT now saying it's one experienced keeper and one younger one to compete, which means if Foderingham does come in, like you say, he'd have to be the experienced one, surely, and then that's your lot on older keepers? I take your point on his ability but when names like Ruddy and Adrian have been banded about being left with Rangers #2 would be a bitter pill imo.

Foderingham is the younger one mate. Defo. 👍🏼

Is the older keeper supposed to be in today?

I reckon it’s Foderingham and Adarabioyo today but they seem confident now about the main keeper too...hopefully all three!? 😊

He's 28 , so Keeper coming in has got to be in 30's not a problem as I think that's when keepers at their peak , what does slightly concern me ,  If Foderingham is coming surely he knows which other keeper is coming also and he still believes he as a chance of making first team

I’d say the incoming keeper is well into his 30’s and expected to have one, max two years in them. Foderingham will be looking to fight that keeper for the number 1 spot. This massively strengthens our GK situation.

For what it’s worth I think Foderingham was the one they wanted to bring in to compete with Raya. He’s very solid and commanding.

Charlie Adam just been on Talksport. They asked him about his future and he said he hopes something will be sorted within the next week, “few clubs interested”.

Why did we not let Leutwiler go at the end of last season if we're essentially bringing in Foderingham to fill his position anyway?

Evidence? 6" 1 so not big at all for a keeper and most of his football has been at a lower level

I really don't mean to sound negative but this fills me with absolute dread, even more baffling that I bet we don't play with this formation throughout pre season.

We have a basic bunch of players, play each one in there CORRECT position where they know there jobs etc and we wont be far off.

Just from what I’ve seem tbh. Big character too. Very different from Raya.
