Yep we are in the third division. Behind the 15 or so premier League clubs and the 6 or 7 parachute/yo-yo teams.

We need to make ourselves attractive to the club's prem clubs as much as the players. Clubs need to know that if they send a player out on loan he's going to get game time.

Obviously, but whether the player has been over is what is being debated here.
I think it's possible but not probable. Could you get him over here and in and out in a day without being spotted? Yes. Would his club notice and refuse to do business with us, also yes. Which is why I think it's bollox. Hoppe is the same kind of height and size, I'm wondering if someone mistook Hoppe for Larsen last week when he visited (and prior to him bleaching his hair)?

I must admit, I'd defended the club at time over the sale of Tav, but I'd naively believed we were going to act quickly and bring in a replacement.
I'd rather spend longer to get the best replacement we can, than quickly get the wrong replacement

This is my point though, it doesn't seem the club had any plan.

You could forgive the club for allowing Tav to leave if we had a replacement already lined up, but it seems obvious now that wasn't the case, so why not assure Bournemouth that we will definitely allow Tav to move once we find a replacement?

Even if Tav had stayed, it would have been sensible to bring another CM due to Howson being 34 and if he were injured, our midfield would be bolloxed.
McGree isn't a genuine defensive CM and we could really do with a player who is aggressive, gets stuck in and isn't bullied. Bit soft our midfield at present.

112 league and cup football for a 24 year old is not many games, would be a bit of a concern - thats only 16 games a season. But I agree hes th sort of player we should be looking at. I would guess he's on around £35k/week and we would not want to pay all of that.

different skillsets required though. Im sure the club did have it's targets but if you don't want to pay over the odds then you won't get some of them.
