Interesting that Nicky Maynard wasn't in the Bristol City team that lost at Reading today. McInnes claimed "Nicky Maynard didn't start because we won last week and I kept the same front three" but that is obviously bullshit. He is on his way out, and the buying club want him fit and ready for the next round of fixtures. The Bristol City manager added, "But there may be bids for him before the deadline closes and if there are then we will deal with it."
Did he mean to say "deal with it" or did he really mean "deal"?
Maynard wasn't at the top of our shopping list but he is somebody we have been looking at. He may not be coming to the Boleyn but he is almost certainly on his way out of Ashton Gate. Given he can leave on a Bosman in the summer, the fee would be very low so minimal risk would be involved. If he aint good enough, he can be moved on again in the summer. Sounds like a Sullivan style deal to me!
