Cunningham a left back?

Yes and a decent one at that. Joe Bennett is just even better.

Wasnt Wes Brown, long before us of course, quite good at both? Just a question as trying to think of some myself.

Henning Berg for us too.

Henning Berg was smart and rarely got into a false position where he could be run at by his winger. He wasn't the quickest though. The least said about Wes Brown's time at Ewood the better although he was a fine player in his heyday.

Mowbrays treatment of young players is beginning to grate. 

I wish he’d have said that about the back 4 that started vs Charlton and not Tyler Magloire, who by all accounts we either want to develop into a first team player or sell for a decent fee.

Start telling the press how it is about Mulgrew and Lenihans performances and stop dropping the bombs on our younger lads.

Technically not a top team of course but Magloire was in the team that thrashed Wigan. Who is to say that we would automatically lose against top teams JUST because he is in the team. Doubt he would do much worse than Mulgrew or Bell.

Great stuff. Hope this one comes off then.

I guess that pushes Willo more into a centre back role, so i can;t see any other signings coming in

Raya, Nyambe, Travis etc all in first team set ups.  Terrible way to treat 'em.

Greg is a magnificent signing for any Championship club.

Whats his strengths? Still not convinced we will get it over the line - we dont do defenders here.

Ya, to be honest I am surprised to hear we are the ones in pole position to sign him. I would go as far as coup.... 

Huge, huge, huge upgrade on what we have. A proper defender.

Raya - publicly criticised and sold

Nyambe - Dropped for a CM and not been seen since. Also received public criticism.

Travis - Sent off and dropped for yonks as punishment.

I’d never heard of Cunningham till this week but people seem to rate him 

Some awful quotes from Mowbray this morning through, this is a bit of a kicking for Tyler 

 

With total respect to Tyler Magloire at this moment in his career we are not going to beat the top teams in the league with Tyler in our team

We aren't gonna beat any teams with Mulgrew and Bell in the team.

Warnock said he is one of the best left sided players in the championship. Signed for 4 million last year, so I'd hope he is an improvement on Bell! 

What's the reason for letting him go then??? Surely would want to keep such player!

Raya has been shipped out, Nyambe IS being treated terribly. Travis nearly ended up out on loan a full six months after being ready to play, whilst our midfield crab-passed around.
