    No less than 6 clubs, incl Middlesboro and Sunderland, keeping an eye on Brady's contract discussions with Bournemouth, according to today's Bournemouth Daily Echo. Accurate, or a hard- working agent?

    There would probably be plenty of interest on a pay as you play deal. He'd be a cheap option on that kind of contract!

    Yeah if Bournemouth brought him in I'd say someone like Boro would look at him as an experienced squad player. Don't think you could bank on him staying fit for long enough to bring him in as a starter.

    If he can stay fit and play, then he's well worth a place in the squad. Would rather have a fit Brady than the likes of Brown or even Hendrick. Sincerely hope he kicks on from here and has a couple of decent seasons after such a nightmare time with injuries.

    It really was a world class cross. Great to see and long may it continue.

    Brady was excellent last night and played a full 96mins. Linked up well with Parrott and picked out some good passes. Looks like a new man this season and best he has ever looked fitness wise in years. Takes that LWB spot I feel if he's fit next month.

    Great to hear. Is he playing as a left wingback for Preston as well?

    I watched him a number of times when he was at Burnley and concluded that he no longer has the pace or athleticism to play at wingback any more. So I'm slightly surprised Lowe's playing him there.

    He's still a good footballer, technically, with a great left foot, so midfield would seem like better position for him these days.

    Pace would certainly be one of the primary qualities needed to play wing-back.

    I think this is the first time in a good few seasons that he has got a full preseason uninjured he looks to have a much leaner body shape now

    Ideally, but I suppose it depends on what you want from your LWB. With 3 CB's he is not going to be as exposed defensively and his delivery is so good from deeper positions, it wouldn't be a question of overlapping and getting to the by-line for him to be effective. I still think a wide left role is where he can be best deployed even if that is a slightly bespoke version of a LWB.

    I'm so glad now I didn't type what I was tempted to write in response to this post a few days ago!
