I was under the impression the guy was a left back. Either way, that's the position we will be getting him in to play. He definitely played for Motherwell there a few times.

 

He's definitely capable of playing both positions. I'm not concerned by this either. It's not like Jute would be happy this early in the day ;)

Definitely remember seeing him playing centre for Scotland U21s and for Motherwell most of the time. Can play left back as cover but have we not learnt from the McArdle experiment that playing a centre half at full back usually ends up biting you in the arse. Would much rather we went out and got player whose best position is full back and not some one that can cover there at a push.

Always liked Mark Reynolds when he was at Motherwell, very cool on the ball but deffo as a Centre half/Sweeper behind Craigan ,, NOT a left back. Problem with another centre half being totally left sided is that Considine is the one out the rest of the Backs that has been playing really well and really don't think that works having nobody in the middle with a right foot.

From memory reynolds was a decent player and happy to have him at Pittodrie. Having said that, presuming he is a replacement for Foster, would seem the wrong way to spend what limited cash we have. Perhaps we will get a LB (and RB and winger and striker and goalie and...) in too but our managers seem to averse to having a balanced squad.

 

 

btw am I right in saying Milsom played LB for Fulham a fair bit in the past? Could that be an option?

This is funny, taken from his wiki leak page,

 

On 4 June 2008 it was reported that Rangers had made an offer of £750,000 for Reynolds, which was turned down.[2] Then-Motherwell manager Mark McGhee explained that he wanted to retain the club's better players ahead of their UEFA Cup campaign.[2]

On 31 August 2010, it was reported that Swansea City had put in a bid for the defender, which was turned down by Motherwell as it did not meet the club's valuation for the player, who was in the final year of his contract.[3]

Reynolds played his 200th game for Motherwell in the Lanarkshire Derby in January 2011.

[edit]Sheffield Wednesday

An offer of £100,000 plus additional clauses from Sheffield Wednesday was accepted in January 15, 2011.[1] The deal was completed a day later.[4]

 

At one point Rangers valued him at nearly 1million, probably to hide unpaid TAX bills...  :o :o :o  then swansea thought he was worth a wack as well, then sold on for only 100k ???

 

Is this the quality of player we need?

Wingbacks? Osborne/Jack on the right?

No idea what all that proves other than McGhee either being daft and not cashing in on a player at the peak of his value or genuinely wanting to keep a good player.

 

The simple answer is yes but whether he is the type of player is quite a different matter.
