According to Snooze
Cov are selling McNulty to Reading and want Chaplin to replace him

Kind of fits Coventry's tranfser policy of signing pompey players

But not sure KJ would want Chaplin to go without lining up replacement?

A loan move would be in our best interest. Or if they want him permenantly then Iím sure Catlin would get us a good deal with a big sell on clause.

Either way he has had his opportunities and not taken them at this level, or for most parts the level below.

You know he'll do with at another club and probably score against us.

Be sad to see him go, but he doesn't fit into our system, even off the bench. Will give him a good reception when he comes back. Hopefully we get a good sell on fee.

If we are going to want a replacement if Connor goes, would it not have been an idea to offer Connor in an exchange deal for Sparky? Coventry would get a replacement for Sparky and a bit of cash and we would get another decent striker who we know and who has been here before?

Mcnulty gone to reading for an offer around the million pound mark. Always liked him as a player but think he might be out of his depth in championship.

I would hope we can get him loaned with first refusal on buying, far from convinced that Chaplin is not good enough if given a run in the team.
Especially as the one up front thing may well have run its course for lower league teams.

Good luck to Chaplin, but if he goes to Coventry and we can get the Cheltenham striker then I reckon it's good business.

Kenny says he needs a replacement for Connor, someone with a bit of pace to have an option up front, but doesn't Connor have a bit of pace. So what is the point of letting Connor go who has the pace and is a goal scorer to replace him with someone who may have the same pace as Connor but will he be as good a goalscorer? I'm puzzled, does Kenny just not like Connor? Is it that he didn't sign him that seems to happen all too often?

Chaplin is frustrating, I really like him but whenever he gets an extended run in the team he canít cut it.

Perhaps a change will do him, and us, good.

I wish him well.

Totally agree Giles.
And I also agree he hasnít cut it when given an extended run, probably due to the system we play.
Itís a shame but itís best we let him go for us and him.
Itís good that other clubs are in for him too though. Puts the price up. Hopefully with that and Webster money KJ may well have enough to be looking at someone more appropriate and better suited to our system

Chaplin is a natural goalscorer, one of a rare breed in football, worth their weight in gold BUT you have to find a way to accommodate them into the team, a way of playing to create the chances for them. They are not team players generally and that is why managers generally nowadays don't trust them. I have a horrible feeling that if we let Chaplin go then we will rue the day.

Rumours we will accept 400k for chaplin. If so coupled with the Webster money are we looking to get a real statement signing ? Can see most being abit dissapointed with Chaplin being sold so what better way to raise spirits by replacing him with an even better young prospect. Think we may be spending a fair whack on a striker if and when chaplin leaves.

Don't understand the excitement about Eisa - he is a decent prospect but unproven beyond one good season at league 2 level. He would be a gamble, whereas Chaplin is proven at league 1 level and far more experienced and we can have him for nothing.

Eisa looked head and shoulders above last year, worth looking at some of his goals for more of an insight.

As for Chaplin, why donít we try and send him out of loan to Coventry and give him another year if weíre so worried about it biting us. Or at least a buy back clause/good sell on clause.

Thereís nothing better than a natural goal scorer but he doesnít fit the system and doesnít want to be an impact sub.

It's the 'what he was head and shoulders above' that is the problem. League 2 star players often don't cut it any higher, so he represents a gamble. If we have a million plus to spend on someone I think I'd prefer a more finished article for our one expensive signing.

If we could get him for 250k-500k then that would be a brilliant signing because he could be a star for us, but he'll cost a lot more than that.

And spare me the you-tube compilation as an argument. I'd hazard a guess that Chaplin's is at least as good if not better. Certainly longer.

wondering why several decent clubs are sniffing. Maybe that should say something to our set up that they might be missing something here and he is worth keeping. Unless we get serious money or a big sell on clause an extra year to see if a 21 year old comes good as understudy.

What exactly is "our system" that Conor doesn't fit into to? We seemed to lack any obvious style last season apart from hoofing it on more occasions than not.


For sure letting him go at this stage is a bad move, unless its for around the same amount as a suitable replacement will cost. So letting a proven goalscorer go for say 400k and buying a league 2 goalscorer for double that, would be bad business imho.

This is really worrying me. We play one up top which is Pittman unless he is unavailable. So we pay a decent fee to bring the Cheltenham lad in and where will he play? Can we afford to pay out a fee for a young lad then leave him on the subs bench and what will that do for the young lad. He will soon get XXXXXXed off and realise he's made a mistake. Performance and value will fall and we will all be unhappy. I hope Kenny is having a long thought about this. Will he change the system, if yes why not change it to suit Conor. Anyway time will tell, it could be a brilliant plan.

The news are saying Cheltenham want £1.5 mill for him which would be too much.

Eisa looks better at bringing others into play than Chaplin so could play behind pitman, or out wide. Our midfielders didnít get enough goals last year and that needs to change if we want to go up.

They also say Peterborough have already had a bid turned down, which indicates they are holding on for close to the 1.5m they want.

For me if it is a choice between selling Chaplin for 500k and spending say 1m on Eisa or keeping Chaplin and spending half a million on someone else more experienced then I'd go for the latter every time.

That's if Chaplin can be persuaded to stay, which reading between the lines in Allen's articles looks to be the hard bit.
