Bakinson Training With Bristol City U23s After Town Fail to Take Option
Saturday, 25th Jun 2022 09:34

Former Blues loanee Tyreeq Bakinson is training with Bristol City’s U23s, Town having decided not to make the midfielder’s move a permanent switch.

Bakinson, 23, spent the second half of last season on loan at Portman Road, scoring twice in 14 starts and three sub appearances.

The move, which followed criticism of the one-time Luton youngster by Robins manager Nigel Pearson, was with a view to the deal becoming permanent in the summer but earlier this month Town instead signed Dom Ball following his release by QPR.

“He’s here but he’s not training with us at the moment,” Pearson told BristolLive when asked about Bakinson’s situation.

“Ipswich have decided that they don’t want to take their option on him, so we’ll be looking to try and find a solution to that.”

Bakinson has a year left on his contract at Ashton Gate, the Robins having taken up an option for a further season in November last year while he was in their first team.

I thought the lad impressed towards the back end of the season, but KM clearly knows his standards and has set the bar higher. For us, that has to be a sign of reassurance. Bring on the new season!

Shame. I thought he was worth a punt, but totally trust McKenna et al on this. Perhaps this allows more development opportunity for Humphreys and possibly Harper, given Benny the Ball and Evans will probably take most of the space alongside Captain Marvel. Exciting season ahead, methinks. COYB.

He did well for us but maybe not at a consistent level.
Showed a very good attitude but it is evident his future lays away from Bristol. I hope he gets set up with a new club soon.
PS he scored one of the best goals of the season for us.

Good luck Tyreeq, you never let anyone down here and showed some good ability.

Definitely good enough for League 1, just not good enough for us. Enough said.

It’s an interesting one. If KM thinks there is better out there, great. This was the second occasion where the loan system was advantageous to us. Walton - it meant we got to have a look at him and visa versa and come up with a deal. Bakinson the same with a different outcome.

If he doesn’t find a club, I could still see him coming back here if the squad is light at the end of the transfer window and BC pay half his salary for the last year of his contract. From what I saw of Bakinson, he has something about him but I’m not wholly convinced.

Got better the more he played but with Evans now getting fit perhaps we don't require him. Or maybe McKenna was not happy with his attitude off the pitch. I think there are other areas that need strengthening more importantly.

If we have earmarked better quality or he feels we don't require Bakinson fair enough.
That being said I think he did quite well and wouldn't have been disappointed had we signed him up.

A player I was highly critical of to begin with, but really grew stronger under McKenna. Wouldn't have been displeased to see him back but with the singing of Ball and a returning Evans, he would be fourth in the pecking order.

Mixed player in my opinion, good physical attributes for this league but touch and passing not the best...

Phil "Fail" Really?? huge difference between not taking up the option and failing to take up the option, you make it sound like we tried when obviously no attempt was made to sing Tyreece!!

I thought he was a decent player and did well for us but as others have said already if KMc knows he can get better quality in through the door then bring it baby yeah!!

Bluearmy71 added 11:29 - Jun 25
You can "sing" Tyreece all you wish but I meant "sign" lol

OsborneOneNil added 11:37 - Jun 25

You clearly don't understand the context of this. We 'failed' to take up the option as a choice, not as a 'failed' attempt.

Good lad.

Morsy, Evans, Ball, El Miz, Harper, Humphreys…. I’d say CM is one place we’re well now covered in so not surprising really.

Bluearmy71 added 12:13 - Jun 25

You could be right bud, but I still cant get past the fact that we didn't even try to take the option so how can you fail if you don't try, we simply didn't take the option, there is no fail, no??

jas0999 added 12:18 - Jun 25
Certainly a decent player, but it would seem KM feels we can do better. Perhaps we already have after signing Ball. Time will of course tell.

ChrisFelix added 12:25 - Jun 25
Improved as the season ended. But as with Bonne the manager decided he didn't need him & could do better elsewhere

Edmundo added 12:25 - Jun 25
Do or do not. There is no fail.

Help added 12:42 - Jun 25
But how can you do without trying to do. Or do not without trying and failing to do.

Disappointing. Thought he was excellent as the season went on. If Ball is of similar ability that's fine. Still no talk of celina? If we don't snap him up I believe we start this season with a weaker squad than the one that finished last. Now there's a guy who is far too good for league one and who's heart is at the club. I'll be staggered if no effort is being made.

algarvefan added 15:52 - Jun 25
chepstowblue, the thing I like about our club now is that there is no negotiation in public, everything is being done quietly and efficiently behind closed doors. I hope Celina happens but if not it will be because the agent demands have been above what the club are willing to pay. I am still quietly hopeful.
