In my view Basham is a far better CB than midfielder - I'd much prefer to see him playing there.

With Heneghan rumoured to be going out on loan then we are light there, although interesting CW has said today that he doesn't intend to replace 2CV (which the more I hear I think has been 'sent' back rather than 'recalled') as Leonard can also play at CB.

Ye, Basham is quality at CB and has the ability to run with the ball at feet hence why we play overlapping CBs. It is possible if not probable that CW could play some games with a standard 4-4-2 with Holmes and Duffy wide or he could see Holmes in the same position as Duffy, behind the front 2 which asks the question about Duffy.

 Heneghan, Curruthers, Lavery and Thomas are all in talks to go out on loan which will be good for all.

Rumour has it CW is interested in Adam Forshaw.....another midfielder

If he has only played a handful of games in a poor Middlesboro side, then can he be someone that we need?

CW has a knack of getting the best out of players but do we need any more midfielders?

Not sure we do.

We have 3 MF slots available in essence, not including the wing backs. Current MF players are Duffy, Fleck, Brooks, Lundstram, Leonard, Evans,Carruthers & Coutts next season. Thomas is a winger, which we don't use, and Holmes probably is more of a winger than striker. Do we class Basham as MF or CB?

We have 6 strikers in Sharp, Clarke, Donaldson, Lavery, Evans & Wilson.

Defence is my worry. O'Connell, Stearman, Wright & the untried Heneghan are the only recognised CB's. Yes, Basham can play there, but is that his best position? I don't think 2CV being recalled was in CW's plans.

This is an interesting one - he started well, but has been off form of late. With Wilson being allowed to leave we've all lost cover, however we do have both Heneghan and Wright for cover there already - do we bring more cover in, rely on the youth team, or look to actually strengthen the squad and if so who do you drop?


With playing 3 at CB we lack cover if we get injuries, if CW reverts to 2 at CB then we have cover. Also, is the lad on trial a CB? and wasn't Heneghan supposed to be going out on loan?

Anyone heard anything more about this??

I read the same, don't know anything about the lad

He's an academy player - on trial at the moment - scored in the U23's at Bolton, alongside Ched. Another striker - not sure it's a critical position for us unless we've got players leaving - unless he's a real superstar in the making and he isn't going to break into the team due to 'The Special One' effect.

So Carter-Vickers has been recalled by Spurs, will it mean CW needs another CB?
