Rumour Mill- Keep Your Aaron It`s Sinclair!

Rumour Mill- Keep Your Aaron It`s Sinclair!

Eddie Howe is understood to be monitoring the progress of Partick Thistle full-back, Aaron Sinclair. Reports in the Scottish media suggest the 20 year old defender is becoming hot property and could be the target of a number of clubs both North and South of the border in the January window, including the Clarets. The lad was being watched by Burnley last Saturday in Partick`s game against Falkirk. Howe though will face competition from Rangers, Hearts and a number of Championship clubs for his signature.

Sinclair started his professional career with Montrose in 2008 and joined Scottish First Division club, Partick Thistle in July 2011, after signing a two year contract for an undisclosed fee.

Sounds like a typical Howe signing, young prospect and unproven at Championship level. Sorry but we need EXPERIENCE and the money released to pay for it

At least we are starting to look at the right areas for a change?

Sinclair's always do well or at least they did back in the 80's but there was always a duffer like the one with 3 wheels and flat battery that left you stranded.

The Big Frank model did OK, 8c8, and had certainly had several prior upmarket users. But I don't think it had any kind of trade-in value after it's MOT ran out; and it overheated in a pile-up in the tunnel after a couple of years.

I used to like the Big Frank model CP, as you say had a decent pedigree - perhaps considered a useable Classic until the wheels fell off! If this lad is any good then the mention of others in the frame suggests we will be lucky to bag him, but the wage cap shouldn't be an issue at this level (or is it?).

Break the bank, get to Newcastle and bring Alan Smith into midfield, give him the Captains arm band and step back. Reports say he is up for a loan?

I am desperate to see additions to defence and midfield, we have such a small squad that untried Sinclair (I have a good feeling about this one) would please me and agree with VR we need to invest "loads a money" and Alan Smith could be the one.

'Im just desperate for additions HOWE long can this circus go on? why can't we sign players ........ ??? something,s wrong very wrong
27/10/2011 19:06:00
Smith and Sinclair in would be a good start. Add Shotton to that list (or one of the other centre-halves rumoured), and we wouldn't be far off at all!
28/10/2011 09:45:00
Alan Smith on loan would do for me
