  1. For me, this is his first real opportunity to play consistently at this level in his career & there’s no knowing at the moment how quickly he will progress. Better players around him could bring him on leaps & bounds & no one knows how far he can go. As you’ve stated, he has all the physical attributes that are required & some players develop quicker than others (comparing him to Lloyd Kelly) but they are fairly similar players in stature so who’s to say that Vyner can’t go on & forge himself a very good career?
  2. 3 years. https://www.bcfc.co.uk/news/vyner-signs-new-deal/
  3. Some players will thrive on the crowds but I guess it depends on what sort of atmosphere the crowd are supplying, if it’s a toxic one I expect most players are happy that there’s no crowds in. There are lots of things than can influence what they’d prefer, their own (individually & team) performances & results for example.
  4. While forgetting their performances against Stoke & Sheffield Wednesday in particular? They are unlikely to be great every game, that’s why they are playing in the Championship & not for Bayern Munich but they are still young enough that they are still learning. Realistically the worst that could come from them signing their new contracts is that we manage to sell them for a couple of million pounds each at some point in the future. Realistically the worst that could of come from them not signing their new contracts is that they walked away next summer for nothing or ver
  5. Technically I guess there isn’t but while both are playing & the team are getting results, it will attract attention from other clubs. And if those nosey clubs look & see that we have two central defenders that are English, under 25 & they have only 9 months or so left on their contracts, it’s likely to attract a lot of attention. So if we can on as we are or close to it & then decided to offer them a new contract in January, their heads may be already turned & there is no chance of us getting them to sign a new contract or it could cost us a lot more? By agreeing thin
  6. I would guess that’s the plan with the system we’re playing, mobile midfielders who can make runs beyond strikers. I certainly expect to see more 3rd person runs this season than we did last season but then that shouldn’t be too difficult after last seasons static bore fest that was dished up game after game. Just a shame we’re not allowed to be there to actually watch our midfield being allowed to control & pass the ball during an actual match.
  7. I wouldn’t anticipate he’s taken anything like a pay cut for this new contract, no way at all he would of.
  8. All about opinions I suppose, I don’t know who else was supposedly interested in signing him at the time City did so it would be pointless me speculating about where he could of ended up. But he’s had a fairly comfortable couple of years here, picked up a decent wage on time (which he might of had problems with if he had joined a club like Wigan or Birmingham). I hardly think he’s going to leave here upset that he made the move in the first place.
  9. I wouldn’t say wasted, he has developed as a player & the experience of playing in the Championship & in England rather than staying in Sweden will have done him good as well.
  10. @RedRoss. @Johnny Musicworks I was being sarcastic as the post I was replying to had the price as £2.25 (no m), you’d be lucky to get a bag of chips nowadays let alone a Championship winger for £2.25
  11. DH did say in his press conference yesterday that we might see another of the recently injured players available for the weekend but Dasilva was named in the squad against Wednesday anyway. It maybe that Newport weren’t training today as the firsts played Newcastle yesterday so they may all just get the day off (not knowing how big their squads are)?
  12. I doubt he would of been on the bread line with his last contract, I’m sure he could of still afforded the better things in life, especially for someone in their early 20’s. So I wouldn’t of thought the club really has any making up to do.
  13. Yep, just getting him used to the difference of the give in the ground on grass compared to running in the gym etc. And it is definitely advantageous if you can mix up training & give the players something different to spend their time on. It means the players continue to be focused rather than bored, especially as this week has been a full week of training with no midweek game & the introduction of Downing & Simpson will certainly of helped with that as well, new ideas from different sources.
