I can see Bakinson comfortably challenging Evans for a spot, potentially ending up being the other way round, i.e Evans challenging Bakinson.

Do we? Not enough match winners in the team otherwise? Morsy, Burns, Chaplin, Celina if he signs...etc

He's got a goal in him anyway, in fairness.

What do people think?

When mentioned on various podcasts people seem to be indifferent on him, take him or leave him.

I'm surprised there's not more folk wanting us to snap him up. I think he got gradually better over the season - which he finished with a belter - and unless Harper is going to come back into the fold and suddenly be a different player, I think we should be taking the option on Bakinson.

Dyche had outstayed his welcome. Back to the Championship where he belongs I think.

LWB - we need a crosser not a dribbler
at 16:41 18 May 2022

Penney.

I'm confident McKenna will work with him. Chances are he won't be a regular but if you want crossing to be the best attribute of our LWB, you don't look much further than Penney.

I still can't get my head around Cook starting Nsiala over...
at 16:38 18 May 2022

It seems that Cook decided that Toto was someone he could 'trust' and obviously we shipped a lot of goals at the start so probably felt he was a good bet as an out and out defender, especially when Burgess was out of form or Edmundson or whoever was injured.

Doesn't make it right. You wonder if Cook ever watched any of his games from earlier in his career. If he'd seen how he played at the start of 2019/20 you'd like to think he'd realise what a good player he was/is.

This surely can't have been the deal?

One of the most overrated players I can remember in recent years. The odd moment of outrageous skill and touch but overall a very awkward footballer to watch, even when he was playing every week for Spurs.

Paul Cook ... I don't like to talk bad of him...
at 12:53 13 May 2022

That tells me you're more level headed than this chap. Antagonistic is a good way to describe him in that clip, if he'd wanted to get more out of Cook he could have easily moved on. He's not the most articulate in the way he deflects but he gave him plenty of chances.

Doesn't look good.

Not sure I like the way the journo handled it either, though. He probably got what he wanted in that Cook lost his rag but he didn't have to keep pushing him where he'd already said he didn't want to go. A clip of the whole interview would be useful for context.

"I'll ask the questions I want to ask, that's my right" - bore off.

Not prolific...but he's still just 20 years old, and this was his first full season. You can only imagine he's going to improve.

He was decent when he was here as well. Him and Norwood built up a partnership very quickly and by all accounts he'd suit our style.

I imagine we'd be fairly happy to have him.

If we're counting Celina then probably him as he's actually played at that level. He might be a bit lightweight but he'd be okay technically.

Otherwise, Wolf and Walton.

Brighton are a quality side and they should dish out more thrashings, but United are an utter mess.

Watching Brighton vs Man Utd
at 18:09 7 May 2022

Reminds me of several of our McKenna ball performances over the last few months*.

They're all over them, keeping possession for fun and creating half chances all the time. United are basically kicking for touch every time they get the ball.

*Specifically the Wigan game where I thought we were so far and away the better team it was ridiculous.

Trouble is, us and Brighton are quite similar in the sense that you could easily see it ending 1-1.

Someone with good set piece delivery
at 14:16 6 May 2022

On the subject of left wing backs - and I know he won't be expected to be a regular next year - I'm surprised Penney hasn't had a crack at set pieces.

As pointed out by George Edmundson while co-commentating on the Charlton game, he's technically one of the best we have, and has a 'wand' of a left foot.

If Evans plays most weeks I don't think we'll get much better than him.

Probably just one of those things that clicks next season for no obvious reason (hopefully).
