    Bit of a contradiction there. If he's not good enough in this division then its more dead wood to shift on next season when(if) we go up. Will be in the first year of a contract so wont be keen himself to move on

    Positional sense, timing of tackles etc you can work on and develop. A complete lack of technique you cannot i'm afraid. Never seen a player so uncomfortable on the ball in my life.
  3. It's not a contradiction at all. I don't think he's much better than what we've got at present so it's a bit disappointing as a loan with no option to buy because I don't think we should be developing other people's players unless they're a step up from what we've got.

    He is, however, 4 and 6 years younger than Baldwin and Flanagan. That means fuck all if we're just getting him for part of one season and don't own him, but if there's a chance to sign him it's different. I think he's as likely as the others are to be able to make the step up (he's not significantly better than them at this stage but I wouldn't say he's much worse) but his age means he might become significantly better than the other two in the future. At that point we either have a Championship standard defender in the squad or we can sell him and make a decent profit.

    Because he's okay for now and might improve significantly I think he'd be worth bringing in permanently if we can get a decent deal, I think he might eventually become a good Championship centre back and have a bit of value. I can hold that opinion whilst still thinking he doesn't currently improve us significantly without it being a contradiction

  4. But we were in the Premiership when we sold Egan and he's never played a top flight game, so not bad business at the time, we've just dropped whilst he's improved a bit.

  6. If we go up none of our centre backs are good enough.

    I'd bring him in for a reasonable enough fee.

    Him and Flanagan are easily our best partnership, Baldwin isn't good enough.

    Would rather we sign him and look to develop him than bring in some over the hill knacker looking for a final payday.

    I don't think he's great, but he's worth taking a gamble on if the fee is right, he will develop as he's only 21.

    FWIW - If we go up we would need two new centre half's.

    Can see just by watching them they're poor though, look absolute liabilities a lot of the time.The 2 teams above us at present are the teams that have conceded fewer goals.

    Too many 1-1 draws could be our downfall. Shite centre back play a big reason why we can't keep the ball out our net & keep clean sheets. McLaughlin bails them out a lot.

    Young, physically strong, plenty of potential to develop and after a shaky start he has looked better every week.....Huge learning curve for him being played out on a massive stage, I would keep him.

    I think he and Baldwin will play at Wembley. We will need Dunne's extra height to cope with that lamp post that Pompey have up front.

    Jimmy Dunne is not homegrown, he came through the Man Utd Academy, Burnley signed him a couple of years ago

    With every potential deal it would depend on the fee and his personal terms. However due to his successful loan in Scotland, Burnley may want around 1million and at that price he certainly is not worth a punt for us.
  17. No .i am saying he should have been given a chance when he was with us and 19, 20 yo. Like Pickford and our current crop of youngsters. If you dont give them a chance you will never know. Some will immediately step up. Like Honeyman did last season and Maja this

    If we sold Egan we got nowt for him. If we had loaned him out rather than sold him he would have saved us money. I dont think that was good business

    Knows how to defend but looks too slow.

    Only a feeling, but I think Baldwin has been more impressive in recent games.

    If we were still in the Premier League it's unlikely Honeyman would still be here. It's unlikely Maja would've been near the first team this season.

    Pickford didn't immediately step up. He played well out on loan working his way up the divisions for a few seasons before he got a Premier League start. Honeyman didn't immediately step up, we stepped down. Maja took his chance with both hands, then decided he didn't want to be here.

    Players don't need a run in the first team for the staff at the club to see how good they are.
