interesting that he is on the radar. Be nice and cheap, low risk gamble etc. Not too sure where he'd fit in currently though

Got a great name as well (if wikipedia is to be believed): Joshua Ishaele Jacob-Heron Hunt-Laurent

just don't get why we would let Barrett go, and then get this guy in.


Maybe he's better than Barrett?

Nah, you must learn that our academy products are always better. I still lament the decision to sell on Simon Cox and persevere with Shane Long in 2008

Bit weird given how that panned out and where they are in their careers now. Do you watch football?

Oh oxf*rd that shit. Won't someone think of the parent's wallets and trying to get that on the back of a shirt.

Also, never trust anyone with a double barrelled name. Someone with two is probably an evil shapeshifting, baby eating alien lizard from space.

Pretty incompetent piece of editing. !

Won’t believe he has signed until Ian Royal confirms it.

Lucky that the stats you're using are oxf*rd irrelevant.

Strange that Swift/Ejaria who we eyeball as very good
are also very highly rated on whoscored.

Without having watched the player, I see he's been dropped, been moved on,
and in this his best season (he's now 24 and 8 months) those whose job it is to
assess him for whoscored, the people who generally get things reasonably right,
don't see him as stand-out.

I also don't know whether ratings at League 1 level are relative to other
League 1 players (I suspect they are but don't know).

So a player who has had zero good years before this one, and who is,
(at least stats-wise) just average/solid League, is somehow on the radar
of three Championship sides.

I'm fascinated by what the scouts are seeing. I don't dispute they are seeing SOMEthing

If he comes in in place of Rinomhota, I’d be...furious!

He is in the final year of his contract so won’t cost much. Shrewsbury fans seem far from convinced he is ready for the Championship. Not overly concerned if we “miss” out.

Can’t find out too much about him. Seems quite tall and fast from the video clips I’ve seen

Not an exciting signing on the face of it but would be cheap
