Luke Garbutt has signed for Blackpool? Now you have to ask why we're Town not in for him. :shock:

Town have been "in" for him and made several offers. The final one was left on the table for him. Guess there's only so much you can do.

Gut reaction ... not that bothered. We were in for him, I believe, and offered him a contract, but he chose to knock that back and look around for something better... like a one year deal at Blackpool! Decent going forward, poor defensively. Was a good free-kick taker - but we have Freddie on free-kicks now :).
Not sure how much room we have to bring in another player with the salary cap anyway. I’d settle for another striker if Jackson leaves.

I ain't bothered either Tang, as you say defensively he was poor and Ward is far better in that department, yes we miss his free kicks but hardly a reason to sign him up.

I think Mr Garbutt is on the gravy train more than he's bothered about where he plays his football. TBH Ward is streets better than Garbutt and so frankly I'm not bothered about him returning to the Club at all. Its his loss.

Every time Ive been to Blackpool there has been delays at Preston. Hopefully that gravy train is delayed and he can’t play v Ipswich, Hallam. Those were fairly decent freekicks.

But....... not to change the subject......., with a goalie @ 7ft 6”, he should be tipping ALL free kicks over the bar. Even Lionel Messi’s. I’d give him the benefit of the doubt if it was Roberto Carlos, (even at his age now)....... but that’s about it.

GK’ s of 7ft 6ins , should be bloody CATCHING the ball marko, not tipping it over the bar. And Garbutt free kicks won’t be a threat if we don’t give away daft free kicks on the edge of our box 😁👍

Isn’t Luke Garbutt a Northern lad ?... probably happier up there with his mates, nothing more than that.

He was born in Harrogate, Charny. I’m sure he was offered terms at Sunderland but for some reason it didn’t happen. You’d have thought he would have he’d have jumped at chance to join them wouldn’t you .

I think Sunderland are in the same boat as us with this salary cap nonsense

I’m not sure how he’d fit into the team anyway. We needed a solid genuine LB (which Ward seems to be). He’d be OK as a wing back, but we’re not playing wing-backs. He would have been expensive salary-wise, so he’d have to be a definite starter if he justifies his place in the squad and I’m not sure he would. We’d miss his free-kicks mostly.

Who knows ... but I bet he’s kicking himself that he didn’t take our pre- salary cap contract that was offered. Surely it’s better than a one-year deal at Blackpool.

You’d certainly think so Tang but some of these decisions are probably swayed by Agents and what they get out of it which is likely to be more when they persuade a player to change clubs.

Garbutt

Post by hallamblue » Fri Sep 25, 2020 8:33 am

Anyone else think he didn’t return here because of Lambert’s rotation system and fact he did play in his preferred position of left wing? It’s just the impression I got from reading this today really !

So Town were never in for Garbutt then. As my original question asked why not? Apparently to expensive yet Blackpool can afford him.

Or maybe they realised he was sh*t at defending and not worth keeping for Free kicks alone?

I’m actually FAR happier with our two players in the squad now, ahead of Garbutt. Ward is class and vast experience. Exactly what we’ve needed. And this kid from Bundesleague ( spl.) will inject s9me much needed pace in the team as we have virtually none to my mind.

Garbutt was very good / dangerous at set pieces. So it’s up to us tomorrow not to give away silly free kicks around the edge of our area (something we are very good at do8mg tbh), so we need to wise up.

Maybe, just maybe the club didn't rate Garbutt that highly

Defensively they would be spot on.
