I think Twine has loads of potential he could be very good but for this league(especially) he badly needs to build some upper body strength, hes too lightweight and pushed off the ball to easily.

If he can improve that (by a lot) he will be excellent.

Bayo has body strength and is at least as consistant as Twine, if not more so, but some of our fans are blinkered as they desperately want to bring through "one of their own".
Bayo's upper body strength is non-existent. Lost count of the amount of times he's been pushed off the ball. Needs to spend a lot more time in the gym to become the bully he needs to be to succeed at this level.

Would anyone sign Bayo if a fee can be agreed?

I wouldn't mind if we signed him.

He's shit, but it's bog standard L2 level shitness with a chance of improving into a better player.

There is a player in Bayo, but you would need to fit him into a certain formation to get the best out of him.

433 just doesn't suit him as he isn't a winger and he isn't strong enough to be the focal point. Probably as part of a two with a big man next to him would be better for him.

Yeah I'd take Bayo on a perm, as long as we got a proper striker too

  Twine, much more tricky. He draws free kicks quite well and seems to have a nice touch - he might do well in a number 10 style position, but you'd need a number nine with him to bully the defenders and allow him to drift off and find space, maybe.


Could it possibly be that with Ben House coming in, that may offer that opportunity?  House seems like he could be a Billy Paynter type. When developed and fit - pretty strong and unstoppable. When not - injury prone and unfit. I'd say House is a gamble on loan but if he proves he's up to league standard physically wise...we could have a handy player to compliment Twine/Crazy/Woolery. Probably not the "man" people were thinking of but if he is physical then it'll be shrewd scouting. A Gladwin-esque move are my thoughts currently.

Other than the Reading link, Iím not entirely sure thereís any similarities to draw a comparison with Ben Gladwin. If you want to indulge in some new year straw clutching, then a young Simon Cox would make more sense....a loan move, same position, similar height and same club.

Came to us as a left midfielder...converted to a striker in more recent years. Still only 29, time has flown.

I'm talking about the build of the player. No straw clutching.

Ben G = 6ft 2in         // Weight = 86kg/13st 10lbs
Ben H = 6ft 1in         // Weight = 90kg/14st   3lbs
S Cox = 5ft 10/11in  //  Weight = 70kg/11st   0lbs

 House seems like he could be a Billy Paynter type.

 Interesting that you mentioned Billy Paynter.... at the turn of the year I was idly musing to myself, what an STFC XI of the decade might look like  Hmmm  (no loans accepted)    I hear you say, but there's still a year to go, but I'm content that none of our current lot, bar one or any future signings will be good enough to get in it, so here goes.....


                                                          
                                                              Foderingham

                                            Byrne, Luongo, L Thompson,  Ritchie

                                                       Paynter, Austin
