Didn’t he make his debut for us in the last game last season. Came on with about 20mins left and didn’t really touch the ball.

Start him next game then?

It’s in midfield that we need more options, not up top.

We need goals & I'm really not bothered where they come from but I agree with your point.

Couldn't score against Wigan, Rotherham, and could only score from the spot against Wednesday on Sunday. Didnt really create many chances in those games either if my memory serves me correct.

Agreed, we need something in the centre, but it's not as if we're scoring for fun at the moment is it?

Lack of midfield dynamo has been an issue since KS got injured. 

Unfortunately LJ hasn’t had the opportunity to bring in anyone to fill the void. He obviously doesn’t see Walsh as quite ready to make the step up.

So he, Hinds and McCoulsky can be our Front 3 in a few years time.

Lots of posters starting to say this but a certain game aside Korey scores ver infrequently and has virtually no assists.

I know he breaks up play but so does Pack and Brownhill.

I doubt a fit KS would make any difference to our attacking threat right now.

I still think a change in formation (like adding a midfielder and dropping a striker) might have more impact?

If there's any shred of truth in this story this will be another young player who will leave for peanuts I suspect.

 

He's under contract though isn't he? I'm sure if United want him then we will demand big money.

OK, I imagine a conversation between Semenyo and his agent would go a bit like this ,

" Antoine , Utd are keen on you , they can offer you a fantastic wage , great club facilities and the prestige of being at the richest club in the world . You would be set up my son .

They don't want to spend more than they have to on the transfer fee so we're going to run down your contract at City and if they know what's good for them they'll let you go earlier for a fee that Utd are comfortable with . 

What do you think ? "

That's one of the reasons I don't think we'll get decent money for him unless we get a good sell on fee .

Utd can buy him relatively cheaply, if he comes through to their first team then great for them but they're not going to sweat it .

If that's the case then how do we still have Kelly? Surely he's had prem interest too.

He’s got about as much chance of playing for Utd and Freddy Hinds has of making in the football league. 

No chance!

For a start Kelly is a first team regular and an England international at U23 level with a contract that would reflect his status and potential.

Semenyo is ' one for the future ' and his contract won't be as good as Kelly's.

If either want out a tribunal would award a relative pittance for Semenyo but considerably more for LK.

You're saying Freddie Hind's goal against Prem opposition is his pinnacle ?

It wouldn't go to tribunal would it? I thought Semenyo was on a pro contract.

Put it like this. I don’t think Tammy Abraham will ever be a first choice for Chelsea and I really rate him.

What I'm trying to highlight is the fact that if we were to sell AS in the January window to Utd we wouldn't get the maximum value for him unlike Kelly who is regularly playing in the first team.

Equally if a player has his head turned then the club are involved in a damage limitation exercise.

Even Chelsea with Hazard singing Real's praises or Utd with Pogba can do very little to combat player power.

I'm sure we'd reject a low offer if we rate him highly. It depends on how long his contract is on how strong a position we would be in.

As long as he's under 23 or whatever age it is then it would. Liverpool had to pay tribunal fee for Ings

If he's out of contract then yes. I assume he is under contract

Don’t bother toss. I’ve just looked for myself. He’s on loan at Wrexham????

So.....you completely wrote the kid off without actually knowing where he was playing or had any understanding of his progress. WOW.

As you have now been enlightened to the fact, he, along with around 15 other academy prospects, are out on loan at various levels of the football pyramid to further their progression. As an academy, that's what we do as part of the "pathway". Some will make it, some wont.

As an example, Bobby Reid at 19........4 appearances for city and 1 goal. Sent out on loan to Cheltenham and Oldham. 6 years later, sold for £10 million and playing in the premier league

Freddie Hinds at 19.......4 appearances for city and 2 goals. Sent on loan to Cheltenham and Wrexham.........

Two words spring to mind in Freddys case then. 

Lead and balloon.

Hardly got in squad at Cheltenham and not made squad at all at Wrexham so far. I cannot see how he can develop with these loans to be honest.
