Jagielka

Think he's meant to do another couple years at the club and make 20-30 appearances each year rather than start every week given his age and fitness. Still a leader and a great player on the pitch who has a role to play here.

that's fine with me, but i hate captains on the bench. complete waste of the armband, they need to be on the pitch. give it to barry if jags isn't starting.

I wouldn't like to see us actively get rid of him but if someone put a decent offer on the table for him then I would seriously consider it. It would be a bit of an upheaval at this late stage but lets face it, this year is about getting our shit together and will we be looking to Jags to lead us for the two seasons after that? Probably not.

I know what you mean but there are a lot of changes in personnel already and I think a degree of continuity is important. If we get Kone then I can only see Jags getting 15-20 games and maybe leaving at the end of this season. But for now, he has a role to play - on and off the pitch.

That's why you have a club captain, vice captain, 3rd captain.

Pleased to hear it but I can't see Jags getting too many starts if we sign Kone - unless we go with a back three. And even then I think it might be Kone Williams Mori.

here is what ron said

 

There is no way Jagielka will leave the club if you count our centre-backs.

If he'd have left it as "there is no way Jagielka will leave the club" I'd presume he still wants him. To say "if you count our centre backs" - that indicates to me he'll only be cover this season and another centre back or two come in then he'd be surplus.

i thought the same thing and almost typed it out but just left it. I think if Kone comes in and maybe Martins Indi or something Jags will go. But as is, he's here till then.

I took it like he's not selling him and even if he was open to it if you count our centre halves we're short anyway so this compouds the fact he isn't going anywhere.

 

He also reiterated he is the clubs captain.

i missed that part. that does strengthen the stay argument then. either way i'm fine with it. quality guy in a 3 CB or off the bench or starting, or quality fee for an aging CB.

It's strange how people interpret things differently. I took the complete opposite. It sounded to me like he wants Jags to skipper the squad this season, you can't lead from the bench (unless your ronaldo) so for me it sounds as if he will be first choice CB this season.

in that case maybe williams is the LCB and mori is on the bench with holgate.

I would have taken it as the opposite if he hadn't included "if you count our centre backs". That to me indicates he's thinking of numbers rather than the player himself.

I think we will see more and more games where we line up 3-5-2.

 

That means we need 6 cbs to have cover for each position.

 

Left cb. Mori/Williams

 

Cb. Jags/Kone

 

Rcb. Holgate/?

I tend to agree.

 

What's the word on Matty Foulds? How far away from the first team is he?

 

I keep hearing good things but haven't seen him yet.

I'd like that, similar to what Terry had done at Chelsea.

Precisely. He's been around how long now, and captain for much of that time. He'd be a huge loss to the club, so I'd much rather keep him around and maybe join Unsworth in the coaching department of the youngsters.

That for me staying at the club as a coach.
