Just a Suggestion: Macauley Bonne

by John Smith » 31 Jan 2018 11:46

I keep a fairly close eye on the Conference and it's quite easy to see this guy is a level above: banging them in for that shower Leyton Orient (15 in 31, Orient have scored 39 goals in total) but above all they are valuable strikes that are keeping them out of the relegation zone.

I know they are three levels below us but Omar Bogle could be a Prem player next season with Cardiff and was playing for Grimsby at this level just three seasons ago.

Bonne's style would suit us as well - he's good in the air and works as a lone striker or in a front two. Much like Doyle or Long who could play the two roles well.

Food for thought...

I’ll see your Macauley Bonne, and raise you an Isaac Success. He’s a very good player already but Watford don’t have room for him at the moment. Love to take him on loan now we seem to have offloaded Beerens and Popa.

Surely not a realistic target. Wouldn't he go to Granada or Udinese or one of the other clubs they own?

I don’t think this would be a terrible suggestion, however, like Bogle, I would expect him to go to a L1/L2 team first before Championship clubs look at him. If, and it’s a big if, we do go down, this would be the kind of player we should be looking at.
