    Lingard

    There is media talk of us going back in for him.
    I am in two minds about him.

    I am worried about his lack of game time at Old Trafford,on the other hand when on loan at West Ham last year he was their best player.

    I'm also in two minds and both of them say no thanks.

    That ship has sailed, imo...and I mean that more from his perspective. To continue to bugger up the metaphor, he's missed the boat and we're on it.

    (I know it wasn't his fault, btw)

    Agree as well.

    I rather suspect, that he thought there would be a mad rush for him and his agent set his wage demands to high and it cooled interest.

    No thanks. It's obvious that we were begging any and everyone to join us in January. But that's no longer the case now.

    The only thing going for him is that he's on a Free. But I would've thought we could do better and are not shy to spend money.

    Send him to the Hammers.

    Hes just a middle of the road mid-lower prem team forward. One swallow doesn't make a summer (to carry on with the sailor puns you big fairy Zip 🤣🤣🤣 haha), his half season at WH mirrored Willocks form during his loan with us.

    We are targeting the Bruno, Diaby, Botman, Ekiteke tier of players - quality, under 25 with a very potential ceiling.

    Time will prove me wrong on this one, no doubt, if he comes I'll back him to do a job and get goals, I just think we will do better to continue to focus in the current Bruno trend.

    One idiots opinion.

    And it’s a no from me, we can do better. Would only be a yes if he was prepared to accept a realistic wage, similar to the rest of the squad.
