Dan James is class, Swansea also have a 6'4" centre back called Joe Rodon who captains Wales U21's. He is very good in the air, seems to be two footed, very comfortable on the ball, doesn't jump into the tackle and believe or not is faster than Dan James. Didn't get a game with the first team until this season, because the last few Swansea managers have been spineless and went for older players. Was a regular in the side and playing very well until he did a metatarsal in January. Saw him play as a youngster for their academy side a few times when I was working there and looked the absolute business.
You're right Dano I Forgot about him.
The thing with teams like swansea is they try to play the game as it should be played and that I think is down to Alan Curtis who unfortunately for them has retired now.
Bowen at Hull looked useful as well

I always look at the Hull reports, just because of seeing how young Reece Burke is getting on. Hull got a snip with him 500k wasn't it ? Ever present in their side, unless injured the lads done well and getting regular football and still only 22.

Going back to Bowen, Right age, Knows how to score ( in the Championship), Very few injuries.......but a right winger, who we have an abundance of......

Webster of Bristol city also is one to keep an eye. A ball playing centre half, very comfortable on the ball and does the simple things very well.
So do I . They’re simple after all :lol:

I've said it before, Mason Mount at Derby is worth a punt if they don't beat Villa.

Fredericks also came from Championship Fulham.

I like the looks of Mount, could be the pacey box to box presence we need.

The jury is still out on Fredericks.

To be honest I'd be more excited about signing someone like Neal Maupay than Moussa Marega.
For me there are players in the Championship that are more than worth a punt. The Brentford trio of Maupay, Watkins and Benrahma are all under 24 and are producing the goods.
I don't know about anyone else but Maupay's 25 goals in the Championship impresses me more than Maregas 11 playing for the second best team in Portugal.

Communism deprives no man of the power to appropriate the products of society; all that it does is to deprive him of the power to subjugate the labour of others by means of such appropriations.

Che Adams at Brum.

Ex-Blunt but a good scrub and he'd be worth a shout.

Chelsea would need him with Higuain going and the transfer ban
