Didnt we have a a Duffy, after Daryl, who played a few games then we sold him to Millwall, I think. Australian.

I might have dreamed all this.

Shane Lowry. Close.

Shane Duffy available on loan. Celtic, West Ham, West Brom and Burnley interested.

I'd take him tbh. Experienced and we need someone like that alongside Mings since Chester couldn't start games any longer.

Milk turns quicker....avoid. Smith wants a ball player at the back too which is the reason Duffy lost his spot at Brighton.

Surely all the goals we concede from crosses is more of a concern to correct? Even in the improved run at the end of the season we let in 5ft 7 in Theo Walcott ghost in at the back post to head in.

Getting in an aerially dominant CB alongside Mings should be a target for this summer. Duffy is much better than Hause for a start if we're on about ball playing CBs.

Duffy is excellent in the air but it wasn't the fault of the right sided centre back for that Walcott header either way. Being better than Hause on the ball is something every senior player at our club can boast, including the keepers!

Duffy has his uses don't get me wrong. Excellent from set pieces for and against, Mings is very average in comparison. But he doesn't fit our style of play at all. I think we could reintegrate Engels instead and have possibly a better Duffy type centre back.


I rate Lewis Dunk higher than Shane Duffy. He chips in with the odd goal too.

That's the fella, I was a bit bemused when I thought there was a clamour to re-sign him. On account of him being a bit agricultural. And hopeless.

You'll be getting more than a warning if you keep it up.

I thought he was the one who was in Boyzone and then ended up in Coronation Street.

Keith. Shane Lynch was the other one.

If we sign S Duffy can we call him Tin Tin and sing 'Kiss Me' to him?
Id leave Brighton to stew as they want to keep white who was brilliant for Leeds.

Brentford to target winger Robin Hack of FC Nurnburg, if Benrahma is sold.

Buy Robin Hack before they do (given that they hardly ever sign a dud).

I suspect there's little truth in the rumour but I wouldn't say no to Cantwell

Get Cantwell and if we can keep Jack gives us 2 creative players going forward, personally I think we are yet to see the best from Cantwell, could be a very decent signing.
Hope we do sign Cantwell. It'd be a good move for him (stay in the PL, lots of games, bit of a chance to shine) and for us (take pressure/focus off Jack). It could propel both of them in to the England set up, if we get the right people around them.

I think Cantwell and Watkins would be excellent signings.  I'm happy to start with Konsa and Mings, but we were crying out for a no nonsense stopper like Duffy at times last season and I'm sure he would have improved our squad.

I was wondering this. He had a poor spell but I thought he was better than Konsa and still could be. May be his attitude that is the issue.

Its not if we have it more whether Dean has.  There seemed to be something other than injuries for why he wasnt used a lot after Christmas tho he did play at Wembley so who knows

I believe in Engles. Something good in everything I see. I have a dream.

Was speaking to a Bremen season ticket holder earlier on. Really rates Rashica and said he thought (the thoroughly despised) Leipzig was effectively a done deal a while ago. He was resigned to losing him and tho he wanted him to stay, says he was effectively too good for them and is their main saleable asset.
Said Bremen would get more money from an English club and it would help them as they needed to dismantle their squad, get rid of some of the shite they have and build again. Pretty happy if he goes to Villa rather than another German club. Said we'd be getting a very good player.

18 goals in 63 games, thought wed strive for better than that .....weve already got a few very good players but need seasoned goal scorers
