Ben Davis Preston defender pre contract close to being finalised. Good player.

Agree0 Disagree0

Not really - average player at best playing for an average team

Downsizing continues to gather pace.

26 Jan 2021 19:14:27
The DR reporting Ben Davis is nowhere near competing.

26 Jan 2021 19:15:08
Give it a rest honestly lads a good solid player and he'd be in my team before Duffy How's about seeing how he plays for us then judge him honestly another key board manager.

26 Jan 2021 19:43:16
Aye ok Sam, you watch a lot of Preston do you.

This isn’t football manager - the guy is not any better than what’s at the club already. So what I’ll do is judge him on the highlights of games I’ve seen and then odd game in full I’ve watched and say he is average playing for an average club.

If this is then calibre of signings then just play the youth players and let them get experience.

26 Jan 2021 20:05:56
As a matter of fact I watch a lot of championship football and he's stuck out anytime I've seen him he's a good solid player can actually play out the back and doesn't take chances. So I'd say yeah he's better than Duffy and Bitton and he's capable of playing at full back. Would definitely strengthen our team.

26 Jan 2021 20:19:03
Left sided CB too. Hopefully we can convince Preston to sell now. Davies at LCB and Ajer at RCB should help plug that leaky defense. Meant to be good in the air too, He'll have plenty of set pieces to contend with.

26 Jan 2021 20:31:14
Sam - anyone is an improvement on Duffy and Bitton.

Davies is no better than Welsh IMO so we will just have to disagree on this one.

Our competition for him was Bournemouth with Rangers mentioned before as well - both are pretty average clubs for me.

26 Jan 2021 20:53:26
Why do people bash potential signings as not ever being good enough for us automatically fee, interested clubs and club currently played for come into consideration. Our fan base are so quick to think we are above signing players before they even kick a ball for us.

26 Jan 2021 21:07:30
I guess this means we will next hear that he has signed for Bournemouth.

26 Jan 2021 21:21:14
Kev T I rest my case you said he's not better than what we already have then you've just said he's better than Duffy and Bitton make your mind up. All I'm saying as don't judge the lad until he's played for us because I don't care what team they play for look at Mc Donald, Hooper, Lubo, Agathe, Larsson! They all turned out no bad I'd say, we need a capable CB he looks solid and can play he could potentially cost us nowt give him a chance and yes Welsh is a good young player he'll potentially be a regular very soon.

26 Jan 2021 21:54:44
Sam behave

Bitton is a centre mid

Duffy ain’t our player

For clarity he is no better than Welsh, Julien the only real centre half’s in our squad.

26 Jan 2021 21:58:29
Our defence is so bad that we need to sign a proven player - international level if we can not a guy from mid table championship

We have had many great bargains in the past but we have had far too many rubbish players signed and I think especially after this shambles of a season we need to bring in better.

I’d rather we not sign anyone until a new head of recruitment is in place with a new manager.

26 Jan 2021 22:22:04
Kev your the one needing to behave bud not willing to give the lad a chance. And when is this head of recruitment coming in because you'll be waiting a very long time. This lad will do just fine. I'm all for giving them a chance instead of writing them off before they've even played.

27 Jan 2021 00:43:07
Kev I agree with your last comment. Why sign the lad on a pre contract when the new manager isn't in yet.

Means one of 2 things. NL is staying or the new manager will be a yes man.

Both give me the fear.

27 Jan 2021 12:03:04
Signing players now could also mean 2 other things.
1 - We have identified our New Manager and he has given his approval to the signing.
2 - We have arranged for a DOF to come in and it's him who has given the OK for the signing.

No one knows but as a club are we just supposed to sit on out hands until the summer and then try and pick up the scraps

In regards to the 2 above options, Nothing has been announced as yet but I'm betting as soon as the league is mathematically gone we will see announcements

But as I mentioned earlier this could be the clubs usual smoke and mirrors and we will see him sign for Bournemouth.

27 Jan 2021 15:21:10
Jon I hope you are right mate but I have a feeling both Lawwell and NL will still be here next season.

27 Jan 2021 16:44:39
All the links to players are even more doubtful this year and they are doubtful every year. Four days to go and nothing. A complete shambles.

27 Jan 2021 17:42:21
I hope I'm right also in regards to a new manager and a DOF but as I mentioned I honestly think its all smoke and mirrors and can't see us bringing anyone in.
