Anyone think of central defender for the summer? 09:28 - May 5 with 1554 viewsMrTown

Seems likely now that Wilson, Chambers & Nsiala will all leave in the summer, with McGuinness going back.

Woolfenden has had a decent little run in poor season for him since the Charlton game.

Will still need 2/3 central defenders this summer.

Any ideas all?

Che Dunkley from Sheffield Wednesday (again, was with Cook at Wigan).

Poll: Have you entered the ballot for upcoming games?

Eoghan O'Connell from Rochdale. As much as Rochdale have been awful defensively this year I think he's been highly rated by many for a couple of years now. Maybe a back-up option.

I'd like to see Baggott get a chance too but we need an experienced option who will start week in, week out. Tom Anderson at Doncaster?

George Johnston played really well against us for Wigan, and is out of contract I believe.

Ready! Steady! Cook!

He's had a bit of rough season, only played around 10 games, spend around 2 months out with an injury. Nearly 30 now.

Not sure on this one, but can see why it is suggested.

I like Eoghan O'Connell. Out of contract I think as well.

Anderson a good shout for me.

CCV wouldn't come here. He'll get a Championship gig.

Johnston don't know anything about. Dunkley not for me. I thought Blackett was a left back?

George Johnston. On Liverpool's books as a youth. Only 22 years old. Scottish youth caps. On loan to Wigan from Feyenoord. Believe he is out of contract this summer.

Always like Harry Soutter when he was at Fleetwood, but not sure of his contract position at Stoke at the moment

Baggott looks really good but probably a bit too early for him to be a starter

Souttar was a man mountain at Fleetwood. Contracted for another 4 years at Stoke, playing pretty much every week. No chance on a deal there.

Baggott can't be relied on yet, still some way away from first team regular.

Great shout. Crystal Palace his parent club.

Had a really good spell with Charlton on loan. Imagine they'll be looking to sign him permanently as well.

Lads you’re all setting your sights far too low, we have Yank police pension cash to burn and Sergio Ramos is out of contract this summer.

However, the most dangerous leftists of all may be certain oversocia- lized types who avoid irritating displays of aggressiveness and refrain from advertising their leftism, but work quietly and unobtrusively to promote collectivist values, “enligh- tened” psychological techniques for socializing children, dependence of the individual on the system, and so forth.

Just popped over to Wigan forum to see if there was anything on him. Few mentions for him regarding POTS, but they seem to rate Curtis Tilt there as well. He looks a small CB though, apparently just 6ft.


Side note, they really think that Callum Lang is pretty special.

As I thought but someone did ask........

need someone in the mould of him, but really don't know too much about the Championship players unfortunately

There's plenty of better ones that we have in this division but I am guessing we are hopefully looking for something s bit better than that

Would take Callum Connelly who seems to have progressed into a decent CH

if we are looking in that mold, then someone has already mentioned Tom Anderson at Doncaster.

I think he could be a good option.

Stranger things have happened, he’s out of contract in the summer. Dunkley was solid under Cook, a player that he will trust.

Johnston is out of contract at Feynoord, although they might have an option. Would be a quality signing imo, one that I could definitely see moved on for a good fee if he came here and done well.

Blackett can play left-back or centre-back, not been a regular at Forest this season. Was on Man United’s books and moved for almost £2m a few years ago, so definitely something about him.

Stranger things have happened, but he's been playing at Bournemouth, at the top end of the Championship, a Champ team will take him, especially on a free.

Dunkley at this level fully fit would be a very good signing. But he hasn't really consistently played since he fractured his leg at the start of 2020, and was out for 11 months. He's missed another 2 months this year due to injury. Has only played about 10 games. Seems a big gamble.

I genuinely don't know anything about that Johnston kid, but a couple have mentioned him now.

Blackett I remember at United, and Reading. Looked a good athlete, versatile. so possibly a good option.

Connolly really does tick a lot of boxes. He's out of contract, only 23 and played a decent chunk of football consistently over the past few seasons (some of it in the Championship). He's probably the last decent loanee we actually had - looked a capable, solid Championship player for us. Has now blossomed into a decent centre half for Fleetwood, a warrior but also very comfortable on the ball and versatile too. Also played for Cook previously at Wigan.

Very much the type that could go on the journey with us and potentially be worth a few quid too as he develops further.

I liked Connolly, but not as central defender for me. Certainly can see him as CDM in one of the 2 roles in Cooks system.

Would be a really good and natural replacement if Downes were to be sold. Carbon copies of each other really.

I think he is settled in the CH role now, think he would be just what we need

We do need replacements for Dozzell and Downes, neither of them provide much if not anything currently, Dozzell plays 2 metre passes back t whoever has played it to him or plays it nowhere near a team mate and flings his arms in the air and Downes, I have no idea what he does

Pssst. I think Chico *might* be having a little giggle with you there, Lovejoy.

Mullet Gtsb Blue badger Bloots N2 Blue ITFC Joe …and the rest. Do you not understand that these forums have massive sway these days? You’ve killed it. We may go on to bigger better things, who knows? Your bitching and whining on here is picked up and has a massive ripple effect. Fking knobs the lot of you. For weeks you’ve been stamping your feet like little girls and it gets picked up when all you needed to do was ride it out for a bit. Pathetic. Cook always comes good, he always has done, talk to any Pompey, Wigan or Chesterfield fan. I’m in Pompey tonight and they’re all shaking their heads. Dkheads the lot of you. Happy to get banned on the back of this. You’re ridiculous. The ramifications are massive which may be placated with money but fk me; learn to kick a ball and know what you’re talking about before you lash out in anger. A massive shame and a massive shame on you. Cook is working hard. What are you doing other than idly pointing fingers and drawing on nonsense stats. Nothing but contempt for you lot and your baseless insights into football when you’ve never even kicked a ball.
