Thread: John bostock

  1. #1

    John bostock

    Rumoured to be signing from fc lens
    If true this is a very good transfer
    Strong tough tackler
    The enforcer aucks wanted and the soldier that Tony Mowbray wanted to sign.

    Thought he was a striker? Ex palace? Was promising once, but that was a long time ago I think?

  3. #3
    Quite correct on the palace front but he is a midfielder
    Lost his way but looking to get back on track
    For me its a no brainer could be a difference maker.

    I wonder if this means TM is expecting to lose Mulgrew.

  5. #5
    It would look that way
    Mulgrew will get alot of interest I just hope that if he does go we get a fair price and not one that reflects the division we are in
    Anything less than 1.5 million is not worth considering

  6. #6
    I really do rate Mulgrew. I thought he was excellent at times last season. And he was one of the classiest players in the Championship. All that said, his injury record works massively against him. So I cant see anyone offering more than 1.5 (top top price) for a guy you wont get more than 20 games out off season. And that will be in fits and starts.

    Money is a big key these days and shouldn't have our pants yanked down just because of who we were
    You want him that bad pay a good price
    Injury prone yes but you will get a good player for the games he isn't and from my personal opinion for a 1.5 million that's a snip
    Not willing to pay the price?gladfully keep what would be a class act in this league.

    Where we are that should say not who we were.

  9. #9
    Could he be a good bench warmer for us at that price ?

    Havent seen the lad play( Bostock that is)but how about some academy players to warm the bench...? ....

    .Otherwise whats the point of bringing them on and never playing them?

    On the new version of the official site, I see that they only have 15 players down as members of the First Team squad, compared to 20-odd last season. This might just be an interim thing, while they decide which of the Development Group are given numbers, but it might also confirm that TM thinks he can't play too many youngsters at this level, and that there will be further experienced signings.
    Only Wharton and Tomlinson are in the squad, besides those who established themselves last season.
    Mahoney is not there at all!

    I believe Tomlinson will play a part this season as will Wharton
    I cannot see the clamber for defenders
    At right back nyambe is our first choice so why bring in someone experienced to sit on the bench
    Travis can come in if needed
    Williams the same Doyle can come in if needed
    Centrally mulgrew(currently)lenihan,ward and Wharton
    If someone leaves then maybe until then attention should be on the forward line
    Just Graham,stokes and a very inexperienced mansell this area should be a priority.

    That must be right, Robin. I can't see that we will go into the season with only two experienced strikers, so there has to be something in the pipeline there.
