Big, exciting prospect that Porto have high hopes for who’s in contention to win European golden boy and is already their second choice right back. Was absolutely crucial in their UEFA youth league win but is a bit weak. Would be a very good player to have on our hands.

He looks class but I’d feel for Holmes who did absolutely nothing wrong and probably deserves some time in the team.

Reported that we'll have a mandatory purchase clause included if we sign him :shock: :shock: :shock:

This is my concern. I can see the likes of Holmes and McIntyre not even making the squad going forward let alone the starting line up. They are totally committed and have done well. I would hate to see them become disillusioned. They need to be given a fair chance.

Tbf Holmes was always going to be behind 4/5 others. He’s not a specialist RB. This guy is special and would be a massive coup if we pull it off before tomorrow’s deadline.

Its going to be an intense season and both Holmes and McIntyre will get their chance.

If we sign this kid, we will have 8 specialist defenders (plus the academy) which is 2 for every position across the back 4. That's about the right number.

Holmes did really well yesterday, but he didn't look a natural RB. All of Watford's early pressure came down that side which caused a bit of chaos, he grew into the game though to be fair to him. However he's still only 20, I'd be happy for this guy to come in considering his pedigree and for one of Holmes/McIntyre to go out on loan. If we're serious about a promotion challenge I think it makes sense to address our weak spots, one of which is RB currently (no disrespect to Holmes). If we can do that cheaply and with someone very highly rated like this lad I'm all for it. I imagine he's probably more suited to our style than Holmes also if we're looking to play attacking wing-backs.

We are trying to loan out Tom McIntyre. Tom Holmes is a brilliant prospect but let’s be honest, he’s not a right back and playing youngsters out of position risks absolutely ruining their confidence. I’m more concerned about Araruna- what happens to him now? He’s not going to be back in the team after injury and it seems Paunovic thinks he’s a right back.

Holmes had a tough start because Watford targeted our right flank but he was absolutely fine as the game progressed and got forward really well. He is a big lad so looks a bit awkward at right back. I would much have preferred we kept him and TMc as third and fourth choice centre backs. We did not need to sign Gibson.

Let’s not forget he got the assist for the winner.

TMc should be our third choice centre back. He is absolutely ready to compete for a place in the team. I was baffled by the loan signing of Gibson. We had two senior centre backs in Moore and Morrison and two junior centre backs in McIntyre and Holmes. Perfect combination imo.

With a terrific pass. It wasn’t a shot. He also put over a belter of a cross.

Gibson makes sense to me, a left footed centre back is very much in demand these days particularly in the style of play Paunovic wants- we will probably start seeing him sooner rather than later! Mind you I do think McIntyre needs regular football at his age, so he can either earn a contract here or elsewhere. Jake Cooper turned into a brilliant centre back ready to play first choice for Millwall after a stint in league one for example.

Got to remember Holmes isn't a right back. Got a clear future with us.

I know that obvs. As I keep banging on he should be 4th choice centre back which seems about right for where he is right now. We do not need to have signed Gibson. Just my opinion of course but sometimes we do seem too happy to bring in players without giving some squad players a proper chance.

Got to assume Gibson is the LB cover we needed rather than CB.
