Didn’t someone suggest NA was hoping to get Tzanev out on loan if he could get an under 23 keeper in. Wonder where Bursik would be with us at this point. (Mannion would be starting I reckon).

MAD check out this link [Link] I was there and Begovic is a big unit (about 6’5), I’ve stood next to Speroni a few times and he’s about 6’1. Leave you to work out whether King is nearer Begovic or Speroni in height. (He is probably the bulkiest of the 3).

Thanks Naz, I really hope I don't bump into "Stacy H"

King is 6ft 1. Doubt Tzanev's over 6ft looking at this years squad pic.

Didn't think Wally was too impressed with the U21/23 malarky, perhaps Tzanev will get some lower action sooner rather than later...
This is the Anchor and Hope riverside pub for Saturday [Link] I neglected to post the link before.

HAFSOG!
MAD Tzanev’s height is hard to work out. In last years photo he looks slightly taller than Long, this year shorter than King. But still more believable than someone putting McDonnell at 6’3.

Lurker, loving the promotion of Tzanev on his wiki page...6ft 5!

No chance of L2 loan, conference south at best. He has zero senior experience sadly.
I’ve been quite impressed with Purrington and would snap him up if he’s out of contract in the summer. He’s got bags of potential and may even fetch a larger fee if he continues to improve with experience.

The good at crosses keeper is quite elusive. Hence the 6ft 3 centre half's still exist!

Plus Tzanev needs to be developing now at L2 club if we’re going to bring him through.

Or even benching for us.
MAD I’d hope for an older experienced keeper who is dropping down the order at a good L1 or championship club, must be able to deal with crosses.

Just think we’d be at the back of the queue for someone like that though.
Well, we need to up our game in defence and that starts with the keeper and perhaps its time we built. If King can't oust McD then there appears little confidence in him. And McD although game is not a L1 keeper.

Either with someone of Bonham's profile that would have some sell on potential or a 33 year old steady eddie

Naz yeah I did notice that the other day. Pretty sure I can remember him coming on for us around the 70mins Mark one game, had 3 or 4 fouls against him (all defenders diving to play the ref) and was booked, all within about 10-15 minutes. Victim of his own image.

MAD chances are he’s on more than a couple of k per week. Also suspect he’ll get a starting spot in a better L1 side or a bench spot in decent championship side. I’ve seen him a fair few times but only highlights of matches so hard to tell but I don’t think he’d bring to us the difference to match the relatively high wages. But then anyone looking at Long before he came to us would have struggled to predict what we got from him.

I’d be surprised if Millwall don’t take him back from us, they have good expectations of King and want him playing regularly to develop.

Lurker - Akinfenwa is still getting penalised a lot for fouls - see the table at the back of our matchday programme.
Windlesham - a little harsh on Purrington. He's been our most consistent defender this season (which admittedly isn't saying much)

Windy Purrington isn’t much older than Watson (about a year). Guess matter of opinion. I think he’s more aware defensively than most FBs that age, solid in the air, decent tackler, good crosser. Needs to push forward a bit more but seems to have potential there. He’s been challenged by the level but has improved visibly since the start of the season. He also looks like he gives a shit, certainly he throws himself into the game and emotionally seems to connect with it more than several of our permanent employees (ditto Watson).

Lurker, looking at the quality of Brentfords 2, he'll be moving on. So unless he can get a 3rd choice keeper gig in the Championship he'll be looking for 1st team football at our level. Like I say, only seen him twice and I'd put him above our current 2 for sure. But will we pay a couple of grand a week + for a keeper (perhaps the offer of a 3 year contract as Hodges spoke about last night)...

If King doesn't play in the next 2 games I'd guess he'll ask to go (pointless being on loan to sit on the bench)
I can't see why there's any fuss about Purrington. To me he is just a slightly better version of Callum Kennedy. Any decent winger has given him problems, his vision is limited and his distribution average. Is it possibly because he is so much better than the rest of the dross we have on loan?

[86.lo.gg.ed] 
Watson can be excused as he is young and has potential...
I think the choice of Wood or Jervis up front is a no brainer. Playing Jervis is like playing with ten men. The man brings absolutely nothing to the team and Wood would surely be up for a first team run out. I'd also have Burey over Jervis and even the under 10s star striker come to that.

Windy looks good bar I assume the thinking typo of Watson twice rather than Purrington.

If we’re looking at spending cash for a good investment I’d be enquiring about Purrington permanent or at least another season loan.
Glad you rate me than highly Windy!!
