Sign him before he puts in a stellar performance against next week!

Seem to remember that TF really rates Mr. Bannan. He has been a fine player for Sheff Wed, but I agree that he looked less impressive in our last encounter.
Yes I remember TF saying positives things about him

That’s it! All done to unsettle him so he’s got the grumps...Monk drops him for a hoofballer, and we pick up a fit and fresh Bannon for peanuts in a few weeks time...
... just after the transfer window closes. :doh: :ROFLMAO:

Didn't Wednesday 'try to sign' a player just before playing that team, only for them to drop interest as soon as he missed the match. Can't remember who but was around 4-5 years ago.

Interest in Bannan has been touted for a little while. Sources of a usually reliable nature have also repeatedly mentioned our desire for an experienced CM in this window.

I suspected Janelt might have been the only addition in that area for now - but given his age - plus Bidstrup’s ACL injury - he might simply have been a replacement for him.

Should Bannan actually end up at Brentford, it would be difficult to see how Marcondes, Jensen and Baptiste would all remain happy with such limited likelihood of minutes in rotation. Perhaps one would head out, at least on loan.
I would think it more likely Marcondes myself. Contract ends next year.
Very, very good player would be a great addition to the squad.
He’s probably the missing link, I think he’ll fit in like a glove. Hopefully this will happen.

Never quite recovered from that, Betinho. :(

How time changes he was suggested awhile back maybe last summer and it got laughed off!
It is a departure in our normal signings, but so was Pontus...I think now that we're in a good financial position compared to a lot of the division, we're signing a couple more of the 'experienced' players who likely won't make a financial return. We simply couldn't afford to sign those before, now we can take a bit of a loss in exchange for necessary experience.

Its a :sorted: from me. Thought we'd been going for the longer ball a lot more since Romaine left and not dominated midfield possession so much as we used to. Would add a bit of that style back - as an option at least.

You do know this thread is about the poison dwarf Barry Bannan, right? He's Sheffield Wednesday's main man which says it all.

There's more fight in a paper bag.

He’s always struck me as someone who has hunger and a bit of fight in him...which we need at times in our midfield when things aren’t going to plan

Bannan is not a defensive player, he is a passer, and he makes Ryan Woods look like a giant. He would be even more lost in the Norgaard role than Jensen.
Which suggests he is not being considered as a replacement for Norgaard, but for Jensen/Marcondes!

Which suggest there is nothing in this tale. Wednesday's sole focus this season is to stay in the Championship, Bannan ought to be a key part of that with his ability to pass around, even if he's quite slow, from what I saw in their game against us. It sounds like a wind-up by a Blades fan.

Not normally the sort of player I would want, but he is the type of player we need at the moment.

if that makes any sense.

If he's not playing for them next week, expect an announcement the following day.

It does say there was an enquiry.. doesn't look like it's gone any further though at the moment.
Actually, Monk does not say that. The "led to believe..." is the journo.
Monk said:
I’ve had no communication from the club in terms of anything like that. I had discussions with the club a long time ago in terms of how important Baz is to what I want to do here.
In this quote "the club" is Sheffield Wednesday.

Your username suggests you may be a bit of a weapon? ;)

We will be fine, thanks. Combination of bewildering decisions (your old boy Egan's red card at Villa was unfathomable) and poor finishing - we're not playing badly and the results will turn, starting against the side which pipped you to promotion on Saturday.

Back on topic, I'm just amazed that a team with Brentford's ambitions and scouting network thinks that Barry "bazzaboi10" Bannan is the answer to whatever squad-related concerns they might have. He's garbage.

Here's an example of his passing ability:

As a Utd fan I would expect nothing less than slagging him off - however most of us have seen him play against us many times so we can come to our own conclusions thanks

Yes, but looks a fairly reliable source?
But he’s asking Monk if he knows about it and Monk is responding that he doesn’t know about it.

It just seems completely wrong on every front.

It’s probably Bannon’s agent’s opening ploy for contract negotiations.

When these stories come out about us 'making enquiries' you get the feeling we've probably moved on long ago....
