He was no world beater and he had the odd mare, but on the whole he was a decent enough League 1 CB. Something all the more eveident looking at our current crop.

Branco was terrible. A liability. A professional footballer who couldnt take throw ins. Conroy and Preston are streets ahead of him. Not a fan of our other two cbs however

At least you're consistent.  Conroy has played a handful of games.... 4 league appearances at the CG this season we shipped 10 goals. He looked to have some potential, but that is all at this stage of his career.

As Flitters said when he got injured, a shame as we were just starting to be able to get him to think a bit more about how to defend.

 Luke era signing... let's find the next John Stones, happy with the ball at feet, a bit clueless about the sticking your head in the way stuff. JSW was another... went to Orient, along with Embers who are now in grave danger of Conference South.

Eh? Conroy has played 21 games. More than enough to make an impression. You can't select 4 home games and say goals were conceded that means Conroy is bad? Was he at fault for any of them?

Conroy has been extremely solid and certainly wasn't a pretty footballer which is what I looked most about him. Wins headers and gets his foot in. Being able to pass the bonus.

At least your consistent in drivel  Grin (take a little look at threads he played in and more importantly the one he was injured. Loads of posters worried about the injury and the effect on the defence)

21 games, 17 starts is fuck all... as I said shows promise, but at this stage that is all.

Hopefuly he comes back, and is able to develop, and become good enough to get a Portuguese Primera club and interest from Serie A, albeit from a side doomed to relegation.

Clearly there's a big difference between Portugal's big 3 and the rest, but Portugal is a breeding ground for players to step up for big money moves, to the bigger Euro leagues.

So if you can show your worth there, like when Boavista beat Benfica who knows?

Fine- you win. Hopefully Conroy becomes as good as a Portuguese 8th placed Branco playing in front of that massive shop window waiting to be snapped up by the big clubs.

You can be as sarcy as you like, but tbf both Portugal's top flight and Serie A are clearly much bigger playing stages than League 2. Branco's agent pulled off an absolute worldy there.

No question his agent did well and we all said it at the time. Because he is playing there will not change my view on Branco being a poor player. Our attendance Saturday beats the majority of that league. Serie A would have been a move on completely different scale but that was gossip
