McQueen Set For Bristol City
Wednesday, 8th Aug 2018 08:33
Saints look likely to sell Sam McQueen to Bristol City imminently as was predicted earlier in the transfer window.
Sam McQueen was linked to Bristol City a couple of months back but then everything went quiet, the reason being that the Robins would only need McQueen should they sell their highly rated left back Joe Bryan.
That deal now looks like happening with Bryan set to join Aston Villa and that seems set to trigger McQueen heading to Ashton Gate.
Whilst the fee won't be large although it may first be a loan deal.
From a Saints point of view although McQueen has been a good squad player they have to accept that turning 24 in February he is perhaps never going to become a first team regular at Premier League level, at least not whilst he has both Ryan Bertrand and Matt Targett in front of him in the pecking order.
He has started 6 Premier League games for the club with a further 14 as sub, with a further 8 plus 1 as sub in other competitions.
Under Mark Hughes he made only two league appearances, ironically in the last two games of the season where in both he came on as a late sub.

A Dale Fan Abroad - Reflections on Burton Albion 1 Rochdale 2 by DaleAddict
Lying in bed awake on Friday night I was struck by ‘the fear’. By around midnight it had consumed me, and all of my optimism for the season ahead was gone.
A Dale Fan Abroad - Introduction by DaleAddict
My 11-month old son is taking his afternoon nap. My wife is sunning herself on the balcony of our apartment in Salzburg, Austria. It’s the height of summer, but I have only got one thing on my mind; Burton Albion vs Rochdale.
A Hollywood script plays out in the Spotland sun by AtThePeake
It isn’t always easy being a Rochdale supporter. With the majority of the town’s footballing interest being soaked up by local behemoths Manchester City and Manchester United, the club’s attendances rarely break 3,000 home supporters.
Gylfi Not Irreplaceable- But Not Trying To Directly Replace Him Is Smart by BarneyLW
So the dust has finally settled. In what seemed like the most painstaking saga in living memory, Gylfi Sigurdsson is an Everton player. A man the club were silently resigned to eventually losing has moved on and like so often in the past, the club must plan for life without their star player.
Too many things for a title, but stop with the xenophobia accusations! by waynekerr55
I had planned to write this in a different fashion, but Bob Bradley's departure from the club changes a section of this blog. The conclusion was as expected. A seemingly good man and a tryer who simply wasn't up to the job. In short he should never have been given the job.
