Which two are attracting interest ?

Postby Amber Andy » Wed Aug 30, 2017 5:56 pm

SE indicated that we have had three bids for two of our players. He said he has recommended to JR and CR that we keep them. Quite correctly he wouldn't say who they were. Pure speculation on my part, but I think it is Pearce and McDonald. Unless it's silly money, I hope we keep them. Any other ideas who they might be?

Lincoln have previously made a bid for Bennett according to folk on here. The players who may be in demand are probably the players who Evans did not sign and who played well last year e.g. Rhys Bennett, Krystian Pearce, Mal Benning, Danny Rose etc

Evans already said in his video interview on iFollow last Thursday that we have turned down bids for Bennett and MacDonald.

I think we need Bennett. As much as I like MacDonald, I think we would manage without him.

We could manage yes, but we would be better with him!

Macdonald hasn't pulled up many trees yet, he looked promising last year but hasn't had much game time this season. Wouldn't be gutted if he left, but he looks a good player and he should be in the first 11 when fully fit instead of atkinson on the wing

Can't believe people are thinking we can cope without Mcdonald, we've missed him this season.

Midfield including Anderson, Mellis, MacDonald, A N Other would give teams in League 1 a run for their money.

Hope we don't lose either him or Bennett.

If he's going to bring McDonald in for Atkinson, he's going to have to find a new midfielder who can hold midfield.

Atkinson and Anderson tuck in narrow to support Bryon and let Mellis play further up the pitch. I can't see McDonald doing that.
The Stags are for life, not just for cup finals. (or Liverpool).

Millwall had reportedly enquired about McDonald close season for a reputed £250k, personally think we could get better with that sort of money if true.

I'm a great fan of McDonald and was disappointed when he was injured before the season. He's going to be a key figure for us this season. He reminds me of a certa Liam Lawrence with his play, energy and drive.

If he left I'd be very disappointed.

Macdonald was superb in patches on Tues....different level to anyone else on the pitch.

Looks a lot fitter now as well....I dare say we'd have more point on the board now if hed played in all the games so far, looks like he will score / create from nothing.

I work with an Oxford fan and he couldn't believe they let him go last season
