    Never mind him-I’m about to create one for MacSheffrey, his name hasn’t cropped up yet.

    Clarke is better than anyone we currently have in the squad.

    Cyrus Christie misses Coventry and wants to come home, he is happy with a huge paycut.

    Team is complete!

    Good shout, more realistic. He's been kicked out of Newport for biting the Manager's Rottweiler so needs a new club.

    I'd take Conor Washington if he was available via loan - that said I want us to give Bakayoko more of a chance first.

    He’s been near ever present in some capacity in the last few seasons and bagged 19 goals in the championship last season.

    I’d say he’s got plenty to offer in a league lower especially for a minimum of a loan spell as he is still a month away from turning 34 as pace was never part of his game either.

    He’s got a few miles left in him for L1

    He said "the best in the last 15 years" - wouldn't put him above King, Wilson or McGoldrick for starters.

    It's hard to judge partly because they were different sort of players. Clarke was a good foil for Wilson, he had height and ball skill to complement Wilson's pace and power, but was also very sturdy in his own right and could hold the ball up really well. For me King was the best player I have seen for us, really was the complete package, other than his fitness and disciplinary record which let him down.

    Don't scoff but another I'd throw in there would be Juke; for most of the time he was with us, he had very poor service with few effectice creative players to fashion opportunities for him, but he still had a reasonable record in the Championship - Wilson, Clarke and McGoldrick only did it for us in the third tier.

    I'd only welcome him back if he was signed by Eric Black.

    Jukevitch was not in Clarke’s league. To be fair to him he did have that useless prick thorn as manager in his final season but he was still average

    If king was the best player you’ve seen im staggered

    Yeah, I forget there are some on here that won’t have seen us play top flight football.

    Are you sure McSheffrey is up to playing in two positions.

    Not in the Sheffield United match day 18 today and Chris Wilder has reportedly said he’s the subject of interest to a few clubs but wouldn’t be drawn on whether he will leave or not. ‘Got to be right for the player and the club’ he says

    Where you seen this figure if you don’t me me asking?

    A host of championship clubs are reportedly showing a interest so becomes ever unlikely.
