Surprised he hasn't already got a thread here given his potential, but confirmed he's off to Blackpool. Rovers will keep him until the end of the season which is a massive plus. Hope they got €500k plus for him

Hopefully it works out for the lad. Rovers turned down a bid earlier in the summer from them too. Having a great season playing WB for Rovers and scored again at the weekend with Ferizaj getting a lovely assist for the goal. Has eight goals and six assists this season for Rovers.

Aye he's been class. According to Dan McDonell on twitter, it seems like Rovers have gotten about £300k plus add ons

€300k/£250k. No bad considering he hasn't been with them for that long. But maybe a bit ambitious going straight to the Championship, I'd have probably preferred to see him go to League 1 and build from there. Could turn into another Danny Grant situation for him in the Championship. That said, Blackpool don't seem to be up to much this season, but then neither do Huddersfield and it doesn't seem to be helping Grant.

It won't change till most LOI player moves to that level stop failing like 

Maguire 
Towel
Horgan 
Boyle
Clarke
Burke
O'Connor 
O'Connor 
Cotter
Ogbene  ( first time )
Grant 
Browne 

All have failed to impact in that division 

O'Connor from Cork was similar profile, similar achievements & sank without trace 

So what's shocking   ?  Exactly  ?

Maguire has played Championship football for 5 years.

Towell did grand for Rotherham before taking the money to drop to League 2.

Horgan has played a couple of seasons at the level and did grand.

Cotter went as a 19 year old into academy football having played about 10 games for Limerick, his situation is no different to any other academy player who doesn't make the breakthrough.

Ogbene has been excellent, trying to paint him as a failure is simply laughable.

Grant has barely got started at Huddersfield, he's been injured/ill for most of his time there. There's jumping the gun and then there's what you're trying to do.

Browne? Alan Browne? You're trying to claim Alan Browne hasn't proved a Championship level player?? LOL

Going from full back to wing has been the making of him. No English club would go near him 7 months ago and now he’s earned this. Great turnaround for him.

Any chance you'd address the overall point that all the players I listed failed / are currently failing at the level & none of those clubs would buy them again ?  Not a hope you could but I'll give you a chance to end this turkey shoot of an exchange.

Yet you didn't cop that it's James Brown and not John Brown?

Good move for Lyons, his attacking game has come on a lot within the last year and he's added consistency to his game which wasn't there before, probably own to being in an inconsistent Bohs side.

It''ll be interesting to see how he progresses at a higher standard.

does taking the magic airplane to england now put him in contention to make the squad for the national team?


Posted By: John Nice
Date Posted: 30 Aug 2022 at 10:30am
Seems a fair enough price to me tbh (I would assume there's add ons/sell on clause). There are a few LOI lads who have moved over recently and arent exactly pulling up trees YET e.g. Tierney at Motherwell. Tbf it can take time to adapt to an entirely new environment, so lads would be better judged after 18 months e.g. Scales seems to be flying it now at Aberdeen. Grant has just been unlucky at Huddersfield, but his chance may come soon.

There's a few gone over this summer, some of the best youngsters in the League - if they do well, that will most likely have a knock on effect on prices LOI clubs can look for e.g. Mandroiu, Devoy, Burns and now Lyons. Hopefully they can establish themselves quickly.

Can't get a start for the 21s so highly doubtful. Blackpool also play four at the back so will be interesting to see how he does at a much higher level playing in a role where he won't have as much attacking freedom to get forward like at Rovers.

He's behind Doherty, Coleman, Christie, McNamara and probably an out of position Alan Browne at a minimum for the RWB position as things stand and unless he does exceptionally well at Blackpool he's unlikely to overtake enough of them that he'd get into a senior squad any time soon. Would think he'll just be focusing on trying to get game time at Blackpool when he joins after Christmas - he's miles off our senior squad.

I was thinking Darragh O'Connor. Tbh though calling either of them a failure would be idiotic as well anyway (considering Paudie is doing well in L1, and Darragh only went over as an academy player to Leicester).

Anyone who's watched Rovers even semi regularly will know how good Lyons is. He's gonna have played (baring injury/suspension) 14 odd European games before the winter break. That'll set him up nicely to challenge for a first team place with Blackpool

To be fair if he hits the ground running and starts regularly for Blackpool in the Championship post Christmas, then he shouldnt be miles off making a squad come next summer, that's obviously a big if though - Coleman probably only has a season left in him and I cant see him lasting the Euro campaign and neither Christie who has got plenty of caps (30) without ever convincing or McNamara are world beaters. Tbh he probably has as much competition coming from behind in the shape of Ebosele, Abankwah, Adaramola.

Am I right and saying four off that list were capped when they moved over? Not a bad return.

Yeah I noticed that. He's doing business as an attacking wing-back, and getting the move based on those performances. On the face of it it doesn't look like a good footballing move, unless Blackpool are switching to 3 at the back, but surely they would have done that already.

I'm sure they have done their due diligence. Don't think moving back to fullback will be an issue as think think he is capable of playing in the Championship although may take him sometime to settle.

You would certainly hope a Championship club would do their homework, but then you remember Spurs bought Doherty based on his form as an attacking wingback and tried shoehorning him into RB in a 4.

£275k plus lowish wages is punt territory for a Championship club. If it works out it's a bargain, if not then no harm done (except possibly to the player, but he'll have made a few quid). I'm not sure how much thought the club will have put into something like whether he's a better wing back or a full back, he'll have been scouted, looked good based on recent form and signed on that basis.

Blackpool are just back in the championship & aren't the biggest club so I doubt they would be paying the guts of 300k on a punt. I'm sure they have been aware of him before this season & I'm sure they have a plan for him for when he joins up in Jan.

Yep, doing really well. Should probably be starting for the U21s ahead of LOC who plays his football as a no6 now. And the U21s should be playing a wingback system, suits the squad better.

Yeah having a great season alright but hard to believe they spent that money to bring a LWB to the club when they don't play wing-backs. His ability to play FB/WB on both sides main reason they bought him IMO.

I'm not sure he's really a LWB just because that is where he has been playing this season. He started off as a Right Full Back and is right footed, no?

He's impressed the fans today and should get the next league game as their current RB, midfielder that can play RB was sent off in the last game and the only other RB has been injured for a few months.

Having watched a lot of him last season with Rovers, not surprised at all to see he's hit the ground running. Hopefully he keeps it up. Has the potential to be an Irish international in 18 months

Might even be sooner than that, given the start he's made and the fact Mick is likely to continue playing him. Seamus isnt getting any younger and we dont have a huge raft of options coming through at RB/RWB or on the LHS either for that matter. Let's hope he can kick on and help keep Blackpool up.

His move to Blackpool is going well.

He should be a real option for us at both LWB and RWB in the near future.

Only thing negative about the move is Blackpool unfortunately look like going down. You would hope there’s more where that performance last night came from if there is they have a chance of staying up. 

Another season in the Championship and he could instantly attract interest from a higher calibre team who play with wing backs. Very comfortable at the level and has already hit the ground running in terms of goals and assists for Blackpool.

If he stands out in League 1 it might actually be better for him long term than another season fighting relegation from the championship.

I would agree in most cases Cashin was a great example last year. Just think Lyon’s look really comfortable at the level he’s at already imagine with a pre season under his belt etc how good he would look. 

He would be a cheat code in League 1 I suspect.

I dont think Blackpool will hold onto Lyons for that long if hes performing as well as he is. Blackpool fans seem taken by him. He has potential for even more progression. You could see how good a player he was in the LOI before he left. Has a knack for goals which is always good. Even if they went down i could see other Championship clubs lookingbat him. Hopefully Shams have a sell on claus.

Definitely loves to get forward and attack anyway. Blackpool playing with a back four and he's making near post runs for the LW winger to pick him out in the box

Wouldn't be surprised to see him as the next FB that gets a call up. As well as McNamara has been playing this season for Millwall he strikes me more as a defensive type player. If we're playing with WBs then Lyons' attacking instincts and ability to play either side would be more suited to the senior team.

Agree on Lyons being one I can see in the squad for the following campaign. Equally comfortable on either side which is a huge bonus and a real attacking threat too, hopefully continues to do well for Blackpool.

Starts LB tonight but a pity that McNamara isn't starting. Would have been good to see both lads battling it out.

That's sh*t. Real tough season he's had already.

That's very unfortunate for him, he'll be back by Christmas hopefully. He's young and recovery from ACL's are good these days so hopefully it's just a bump in the road for him.

very disappointing news, he;s had a tough year, best wishes to him on his recovery. Always liked him as a player and rated him as a good prospect
