Utd Confirm they are in negotiations with JDH  

Odd one. We seem to rate  him and want him but can't agree terms  yet United have got him interested? United look like a club with financial concerns, were pretty meh last season and have just  appointed an inexperienced manager. From the outside we look like by far the better bet.

I have a feeling they will work around him and let him play where here wants and the role he wants. This will then show case whatever talent he has. With us he has been asked to play deeper and be more a defensive midfielder, which he isn't good at, but the reason he has potentially preformed poorer is he doesn't want to play that role either. I think he wants to be in the McGrath role personally.

Possibly. Yes I could see that making sense. If McGrath were to leave we might be able to accommodate him?

In my eyes Kiltie takes the McGrath role or you maybe get McAllister to play there to make use of him. If we were signing JDH I feel it was to play the same deeper Role again when asked and he doesn't like it.

Agree here. I think McAllister would actually do better in this role than his current right wing role as he doesn't seem to have the legs for that type of running anymore to beat a man to the byline. He has a decent shot on him too.

I think its only a matter of time before McGrath leaves. If its this summer, we need to work with what we have to fill that role, unless we have someone else in mind.

A hatchet man in the middle/creative midfielder to work with Erhahon, move McAllister to a more off the striker role as an option, work on bringing a couple of more wingers in that can work a high press and have the legs for it,  since Durmus and Connolly have departed.

I would allow McAllister to leave. He doesn't have it at this level. He and Erwin should be let go.

I would persevere with both, whilst they wouldn't be in my ideal starting eleven, they do provide options off the bench. They are also young enough that they could possibly improve over next season. I think both players know they have to improve to ensure a further contract.

Stating the obvious but someone else would need to want him and he would need to want to go. Personally I still think he has the potential to be one of our best players if he stays fit and works a bit harder. He’s more skilful than most when on his game.

If he goes out on loan, we will still be responsible for a %age of his wages. Variable depending on where he goes and what they can afford.  
I can’t see him going out on loan freeing up anywhere enough to bring in a better player.
 Fwiw, I like McAllister , there is clearly a player in there but still seems very fragile and doesn’t do enough often enough .

First of all you dont know what he is on secondly weaken us and short of numbers third no matter if he goes on loan we still need to pay part of that so now you wish us to pay 2 wages rather than one. Makes a load of sense

What the f**k has this got to do with speculation .

Either a good point OR he is speculating that McA might get more assists if he plays more often next season.

Who is the Irish lad we are talking too and is he a winger or is that someone else? Anyone know?

Haven't heard a thing about us looking at anyone .

The club has tightened right up in terms of leaks of transfer targets. This is definitely a good thing, even if it does make the windows a little less fun. I personally enjoy the (informed) speculation and the near-misses.

I'm hearing Flarybob is close to announcing a very BIG exclusive. he's just waiting on the word from one of his more reliable sources 🤞
