Kyle Bartley
« on: July 09, 2018, 03:37:40 PM »
From John Percy:

On a more positive note for West Brom, talks are advanced with Swansea over a move for defender Kyle Bartley. A £3.5m deal could happen before the weekend #wba #swans

"Positive"

Very, very average defender. If that's the standard we're aiming for, we aren't aiming for promotion...

Leeds fans seem gutted they haven’t gone for him. Knows the league, solid defender.

More than likely allows Dawson to leave.

I personally quite like him. A very athletic defender who would be one of the better defenders at this level. Think he's a bit like marmite to be honest given how he's been in favour with some and out of favour with others.

What are you basing that on?  He was absolute class for Leeds the year he was there, one of their best performers if not the best.  His injury record is a concern but if he can recapture his Leeds form we will have a very good defender and at a reasonable price.

My Leeds mate thinks he is a bang average player. Seems to be a bit of a journeyman to me, not that I've seen him play much. Smacks of a short term signing - can't see him being put to much if we get promoted.

If he signs where do you think Darren will play him? Right Back or Left Back? ;)

£3.5m for a defender approaching his prime who knows the league - count me in. Not a great injury record, but neither did Hegazi when he signed.

Allows Dawson to leave and we make a very tidy profit. Happy enough with that, I'd rather we were splashing the cash at the other end of the pitch.

Played for Swansea at the Hawthorns last season. Typically injury prone, still a good price for a 27 year old centre half.

Well he's played in a poor Leeds team and done poorly, finishing mid table. None of that is close to good enough for Albion. Clearly he's not fit to lace Dawson's boots so swapping one the other just makes us inferior.  Nothing good about it. Hope we hold onto Dawson and our better players or else we are just going to be become another mid table second division club.

He didn't do poorly at all, he was universally liked by the Leeds fans was one of their best performers.  As for finishing mid table they narrowly missed out on the play offs finishing 7th..

Don't get involved mate. You're arguing with a guy who rates neither Rondon, Gibbs or Hegazi. Bartley will be a decent signing.

Dawson doesn't want to play for us and Bartley seems like he wants too and most other teams that he has played for rate him. Sounds good to me.

Seems a decent enough player, had a few injury issues by the look of it.
I'd say his addition would be a plus not a minus

So poorly that the majority of Leeds fans are deriding the decision not to sign him permanently. I'm sure you know best.

A friend who watches Swansea regularly says that Bartley seems to have overcome his injury problems and will be a good signing for us if fit.

How many on here shook their heads in frustration at us signing Gareth MCCauley from Ipsiwch and also Billy Jones from Preston. Keep the faith!

And lest we forget, signing Dawson himself from Rotherham and loaning him back there

Do you really think the same level of players are accessible to us now we are in the championship?  ;D
