Made a mistake yesterday, but gets better with every game. I’d sign him as an investment if nothing else

Yeh he’s made the exact same mistake before iirc.

He’ll learn and he’s getting better with every game.

I don’t see him being good enough yet to be able playing in a champions league side. If he goes to Anderlect I don’t see him starting and he’s said it himself he wants to be playing.

Hes out of contract in summer so it’ll be him saying where he goes unless he signs a deal with City.

City will do whatever they want with him, surely? He's not going to turn down a new contract there if they offer him one. If the options are "You can sign for Manchester City and go out on loan to bench-warm for a Champions League side, or you can sign for Bolton and be first choice in League 1" he's not coming back here.

But from City's point of view, they're going to gain a lot more from loaning him to us to play every week than sending him to sit on the bench eating chips and mayo?

You can bench warm for a team that's in the Champions League qualifiers for a month,  in a weak league, miles from home where you (likely) don't speak the language, or you can play every week in a team where you are already liked by the manager, players and supporters, having already expressed a desire to play games.

Playing time, certainly. But that might not be what they're after.

Suppose it depends how highly regarded he is at Manchester City. Either way, they're in the driving seat. £££

They are but being in the final year of his contact does give him some leverage if he is dead set against going abroad.

If he’s going abroad he may as well go for sun, sea and sangria. Belgium is arguably no better, climate wise, than Kent.

Gavin Bazunu who played for Portsmouth t'other week must be ahead of Trafford at City.  He's been linked with a loan to a Premier League club next year.  His distribution was excellent against us.

 

Edison

Steffan

Carson

Bazunu

Trafford

Kompany being linked with Burnley IF they stay up

which in turn may impact Anderlecht's apparent interest in Trafford, if it's actually a thing

which wouldn't be a bad thing

If we don't get Trafford any chance of the fella who they leant to pompey this season?

I would be amazed if he stays in L1. I think onwards and upwards for that chap

Think Trafford needs another go at this level yes looks comfortable but also made a few errors, but certainly has a good future 

This

Hes 8 years and 250 games from his prime. No need to rush things.

I would look to sign someone permanent. 
 

He has done ok. Possibly a free agent in 12 months, but cant see him being within the wage bracket at the club.

he keeps following then unfollowing my daughter on instagram. either his missus is giving him an earful or he's keeping his options open 

That's one way of getting you in the ground!

Wonder if the anderlecht link will shift to Burnley now Vincent kompany  is swapping clubs 

Probably since Nick Pope will likely be sold.

Kompany would be a loon to take that gig at the moment.

Tarkowski, Mee out of contract, Pope outgoing, financial meltdown possible.

He’s not done a great job at Anderlecht either.

Burnley are only going one way.
