Alex Smithies at QPR should be our first choice target, they are desperate to sell players at the moment, I'd take Luke Freeman as well to give us some creative midfield cover.

I would take both players, they would certainly strengthen us, and there would not be the ridiculous scenario of settling in, acclimatising  and having their hand held.
Exactly the type of players that we need... those proven and able to do a job in this league.

Out of all the players we have signed with no English Championship - how many have been a success comparfed against those with ECL experience?

Hmmm I cannot think of any off the top of my head. 😁

Really? Think harder

I have lost my memory, and I cannot remember where.

I have always had a bad memory, as far back as I can remember.

The good thing about memory loss is that you are always making new friends.

My memory has returned, and I still cannot think of anyone.

It's a stupid comment and if not verging on the xenophobic it is certainly myopic.  As others have pointed out there are plenty of examples, one could also ask how many with Championship experience have been a success, of course the answer is some but not all.

JoelH the candle Emojis were off piste and no relation to comments just emoji mad... perhaps subconciously meaning peace or a baying pack of candle wielding villagers ... apparently we are not allowed "middle finger emojis"

You are exactly right David 1, I am afraid poor old Twig has been got at, and brainwashed by the dreaded P C Brigade.

Anyway - getting back to the OP!!!

Bialkowski was excellent for Ipswich throughout last year and played well in our away win v Ipswich earier in the season. An excellent shot stopper so may be better than our current two in that respect. However how he would do with our short ball game is another matter, Mick McCarthy is much more pragmatic than SJ in that he does not mind if his GK simply hoofs the ball away from any danger.

Smithies would however be an excellent call - I am surprised no Premeiership club have bid for him to date.

Yes Alex Smithies is a good shout, and he will not have to travel far.

Bialkowski is a brilliant goalkeeper at this level.

To think Ipswich got him on a free.
