New Midfielder!?!

Postby stace1983 » Thu Aug 10, 2017 12:17 pm

Evans mentioned about "talking to a couple of clubs about a midfielder"

What type of midfielder is the club short / in need of and any idea of who?

Perm or Loan?!?

We need a holding midfield player.

But Evans has made it clear in the past he is looking for a Number 10, which we don't need IMO.

Why do we? We have Digby.

Evans has not used him as a holding midfielder as of yet. He's more of a box to box player.

I dont think Digby is disciplined enough to be a holding player.

I do actually agree that we need a central midfielder who can unlock a defence.

Mellis can, but we need 2.

I'd take him for a year if we could get the right deal.

I'd take Gary Roberts as long as he was not on silly wages. He still had good stats last season. He started 31 league games and was Portsmouth's second top league scorer with 10 goals. I don't know how many were penalties although I think Portsmouth missed six penalties lase season.

Luke Berry would be ideal, but I can see it being Roberts now he's without a club.

with the ridiculous inflated prices being thrown around i bet cambridge wouldn't take any less than 500 - 750k for him now

I'd say Evans would be looking for a leader in middle of the park. Looking at the players we've got now, I can't see one that fits that bill, like a Gary Roberts or Luke Berry type (not saying it will be either of them).

If Evans is looking for an attacking midfield player then Gary Roberts fits the bill. He's free but he was said to be on £3k a week at Chesterfield. I don't imagine he moved to Portsmouth to join Paul Cook for less money.

I understood He was on just under 2k a week at chezzy plus bonuses.

No idea how much at Pompey.

However, good player. Only question mark would be attitude and how he would fit it into a close knit dressing room

I think we can safely say he was on a lot more at Portsmouth. Not against signing an ex- Cheaterfield player, but definitely not this one.

Stick Bennett at left back and play white as a defensive midfielder.

He could be our Patrick Vieira.

I'll email Evans to let him know.
i would prefer not to.

I agree and think its a good shout. But i'd be more inclined to play Bennett at right back and keep Benning left back ;)

It's a bit out there that one he can barely force himself to defend when he's a defender never mind in midfield he would be in front of the strikers. :lol:

Given that he struggles to defend in his natural spot, I cant see him being able to take to playing a holding midfield role.
The Stags are for life, not just for cup finals. (or Liverpool).

Let's let White master being a right back first before we start moving him around like he's Philipp Lahm.
