    West Ham u23 player Conor Coventry been linked with a loan move to us. Source usually spot on with West Ham news. He’s a defensive midfielder. Opinions?

    There was a thread a few days ago, simply based on his surname.

    An attacking midfielder would be more of a priority.

    Am I imagining this or has it been said that agents touting players are being turned away by us because we’re sorted in Midfield?

    True, fuck it we should sign him just for his surname.

    Signing a defensive midfielder could just be cover for Kelly....or could mean a shift back to 4231

    I put this on another thread Panda. It was a bit unclear whether the club had stated this before or after Bayliss was sold. The impression I got was that after.

    I already have enough trouble them saying commentary and my thinking they said Coventry, without this.

    Have a word ffs,
    Why would we want to give experience to a 19 year old from west ham, when we've got some fantastic young players of our own just breaking into the first team squad?
    Eccles is one such example!!!

    Agreed re. talented youngsters being given a chance, fatso, but I trust MR's judgement in what players we need to bring in.

    Don't think there's much chance he would come just to be back up for Kelly, and I would be very surprised if Robins looks to play 2 holding midfielders. Robins seems to like Eccles, so if Kelly does miss the odd game he will probably step in.

    Bosma, Ogogo, Brown, Allassani, Bakayoko?

    At best I’d describe his judgment as “hit and miss”

    Bosma and Allisani were U23's development squad.

    Ogogo and Brown haven't worked out, but MR didn't fuck about replacing/dropping them for better players.

    Bakayoko has done whats been asked of him and will get better.

    You could say Hit and Miss, but I believe he brought in Brown and Ogogo after very successful seasons with Shrewsbury, it didn't work, shit happens, MR learns v quickly I feel.

    Not just me then... whenever Mark Chapman on Five Live Football says "tonight we have commentary of...." it does for a split second sound like "Coventry"

    That always catches me out , thought it was my hearing. Imagine Eakin with Coventry in the team ..he will be calling him every team in league 1 except for the right one!

    It needs to happen. Give him the number 87. I'd buy that immediately.

    Kelly can miss games having someone in on loan for cover makes sense.

    Careful, last thing we want is for Birmingham City to fight us over that player.

    That’s the thing that makes me doubt it. If a PL team are sending a youngster on loan then more often than not they are expecting masses of game time. I’d rather we brought in a proper squad player on a permanent if that were the case, allowing us a better chance of playing our youngsters.

    Clive Eakin says, Coventry scores for Coventry, but Goff Foster says, yeah but who scored for Coventry.
