Preston North End have been running the rule over ex Manchester City and Coventry City striker Alex Nimely to support the ever faithull Joe Garner up front. They are yet to strike a deal with Alex and has been training for a fortnight after there long term target Stevie May moved to Sheffield Wednesday
Freeman I struggle to believe we got him even now. Especially with championship clubs linked. Yeah thats pressure in itself, looked what happened last year when we had that pressure of bouncing straight back up
Sheffield United boss Nigel Clough made it clear he wants 2 more additions to the squad before the end of the transfer window. Someone to replace Harry Maguire and possibly a striker, our midfield looking strong. Wants them to be permanent transfers but if he has to go into the loan market then so be it, he said.
A loan move for Maynard to Sheffield United is something more believable. Still don't see why Cardiff will let him go. When we first had him he was top scorer in the Championship alongside Whittingham a few years ago
Why isn't Andy Butler playing for the Blades? He is blatantly good enough. One of the best centre backs in the division over the last few years. Higdon wanted a big signing on fee didn't he? I think that's why the Blades didn't sign him.
He's been cast off by Clough though hasn't he? He was at our game when your played Northampton and he apparently told one of our fans that Clough has already broken promises to him. He should have been made captain when Maguire left. Easily one of the best centre backs in league one for about 4-5 years now.
I think Butler is a fantastic CB, but while the McGahey and Collins partnership is paying off spectacularly I don't feel the need for him to play. Obviously in time he will become a first team regular, but while our already two CB's are playing well, they need to be regulars.
