Hull White wrote: Thu Jan 14, 2021 5:13 am Hull City have two Irish scouts based in Ireland. They have had a lot of Irish players in the past including Lenihan, Meyler, Damien Delaney, Stuart Elliott(ex Glentoran). They currently have a couple of Irish lads in the academy and were in for Horgan and Boyle before they opted for Preston. I know Flores is from Wigan originally but he was watched lots of times by the Irish based scouts and said as much on his interview on Radio Humberside last night. The manager, Grant McCann is also a former Northern Ireland international who indicated that he had been looking for players in Ireland and Scotland due to budget restrictions imposed by the owners. He also said that he was looking for a left footed player who could give him balance on the left of midfield. They also have Magennis the Northern Ireland striker up front. The owner sold Jarrod Bowen to West Ham last January and pocketed the £22m fee before replacing him with an inexperienced kid who wasn't ready as well as selling Grosicki to West Brom. Bowen was the best player in the Cnhampionship at the time and Hull fell from a play off place to relegation after he left. The owner makes Buffalo Bill look like a Saint. I hope Flores does well as like Seand, I think there is the makings of a decent player there. Older Dundalk fans will remember a goalkeeper called Maurice Swan who signed from Hull City in the 70's having won the old 3rd division title with them. He is still remembered fondly in Hull.
I played against Maurice and remember him well. He constantly shouted "how is he " at linesmen and ref.
Tomorrow is another day.

Aerial duel won : 55.9%

Is that not a bit low for someone who is nearly 2m tall?

Those are international statistics. If he was 75% - 85% he would probably be with a Championship or even Premier Division club.

Can’t think of too many forwards impressive in the air in our league, so hopefully he will be dominant.

Bohs have announced Hery. Really think we've missed out there as really would have improved our squad.

I know everytime he played against us it was with a weaker squad, limerick, Waterford and Linfield. But while he has decent skill, he never really threatened us with it. Personally not that disappointed that we didn't get him.

Have to agree there. I would find it difficult to rank him above any of our existing midfielders. If he was going to shine, Linfield was the place. Yet here he is, joining the merry-go-round of journeyman.

Magilton indicated over 2 weeks ago, he was not interested. Good player, but not sure he did that much against us, albeit we had a much stronger MF in the 1-1 and 6-0 games v Lindfield, end of 2019.

Almost sure we beat Waterford when he was there too, 4-0, and we had a good few players out and in MF that day.

Seems to have gone quiet on the Sam Stanton rumour?

Even more worryingly it seems to have gone deathly quiet in terms of having a league.

There's always a leak from somewhere so you would have to assume there have been no discussions between the FAI and the clubs on funding. When that starts it will still be a number of weeks - from agreement - before everyone has their budgets in. Then comes licensing, followed by the fixture list. Because of the numbers, preseason (and the season itself) may get pushed back even further.

According to James Rogers on twitter, Sam Stanton will be signing, Will Patching will be returning in an effort to prove himself in pre season and Colovic is close to departing. Also close to a deal for the South Korean winger mentioned previously. We are also monitoring a Lithuanian midfielder and Alex Rondo a young American keeper and finally we are interested in a deal for Towell of the price is right but reading between lines it won't happen til summer as he is currently out injured and Salford won't be looking to do a deal now.

Stanton looks like a good signing for us. Hoping more Cammy Smith and less Joe McKee at least!

That might be good news about Patching. He ticks every box in terms of his youth development and he's only 22. If we can't get a former Manchester City and England U17 World Cup player performing on the pitch then I really wouldn't hold out much hope for bringing youths through to the first team from an academy of our own.
