No up and coming LBs in the under-23s, I take it?

Lewis Thompson is a great prospect. Main reason I'm completely fine with Sam Hart leaving permanently (potentially). He's made his youth international debut (and scored on it) and has been fairly impressive for the 23's.

Jack Evans, who also operates in central-midfield, is also very effective and has a lot of potential.

Sounds like no leaks from Rovers. Keeping it very close. 

Nothing to leak?

He's former Burnley, so it's a tough one, but Junior Stanislas can't get a game at Bournemouth, still only 30 - and could be a good 6-month loan option. He's made two sub appearances all season. Would be a struggle on wage for sure but just a thought. He's top quality for this division IMO.

You could easily say the same on League One players. Ipswich tried it last season with Kayden Jackson, Jon Nolan and Nsiala. All in the 1-2 million range and all struggled to make mark. I wouldn't mind either of Curtis or the polish guy, but I accept both will be a bit of a gamble. The bigger question is if the club has the money?

Don’t think it’s a completely different style though, just more quality in champ than league one. Polish football- champ isn’t as compatible in my opinion never mind a language barrier to overcome. Don’t imaging Tony being easy to understand to a foreign ear. 
if I was to exercise caution it would be in the summer Newcastle had a choice of joelinton or Danny ings, massive difference in price but they thought they were buying better due to foreign stats and reputation abroad. I know who they would prefer now.

Pretty much all poles under 30-35 speak fluent English

Members- can we stop trying to provoke responses out of each other please? You’re adults, so behave like it, instead of behaving like kids please.
Thanks.

I speak to a lot of poles with my work, I would disagree with fluent, broken seems to be the most atypical. Certainly would struggle with mowbrays tones and vocabulary

Of course there is a mix. Depends on the work they are doing I suppose. If their family pushed them to learn English. 

I know , a footballer so we all think of the stereotypes :) I would say players are certainly more grounded in Poland.

The activists would like to transfer the player to MLS because they got the most advantageous transfer offer from one of the American clubs.  However, the player does not want to go overseas.  That's why he chooses between Derby County and Blackburn, who play in the English Premier League.

Could be wrong but I thought @Stuart was referring to that bit when he said he'd be disappointed

We have missed out on a young polish player from this club before.  Bit of a better scoring record though.

Whoever it is will need some time on the grass before they learn about how we play

Particularly since we don't know either!

Tbh I don’t know this lad but if the fee is 3, I’d still rather go for Curtis or Maddison , more likely to improve our sids imo just through knowing the leagues

Exactly--if we can afford either of those we should get one of them. Bit ridiculous if Tony is going to make a winger the priority now.

Of course, if we hadn't wasted £7M on Brereton, we could have bought both.

I well remember being told not to worry about the fee--that was Venkys problem!

Well its biting us on the arse now!

Bit more of about attacking threat though isn’t he? 

Yes he is, very much so.  But I remember Smallwood knocking one in from just outside the 6 yard box away at Rochdale before the manager decided he was better off playing more in our half.

Always seems to be out injured .... so would fit in well!

Always liked Stanislaus way back with his time at West Ham, (was it?) We are carrying injuries and have enough oldies as it is as it is so I think its too late with him now.

No way are we signing this Polish lad. 

A - He's European

B - We don't have 3 million quid

C - TM has  never really bothered with wingers that play in their natural position.

D - There's no way this lad tracks  back.

E - He's European
