The Summer/Autumn transfers thread 2020 aka TURN DOWN FOR WHAT(more)

Recommended Posts

I know the type of player that I want in areas that I want.

 

Strikers are going to be difficult. You need to get better than what you have and looking at players available for the money we’ve got, there aren’t many better than what we’ve got.

 

If I can get another signing over the line this week i’ll be pleased.

Howson seems like a good pro and someone who is good around the dressing room and I thought he did a decent job at centre back when we needed him to fill in. 

Saying that I think he's massively overrated on this board as a midfielder. 

In fairness I think that applies to a lot of our Players since Karanka left. The constant changing of formations and tactics (let alone Managers) has hardly been conducive for any of them to settle, claim a spot and show what they can do.

Our tactics and formations at times have resembled crisis management rather than professional coaching. Even under Pulis it never felt comfortable or convincing with odd, even eccentric selections (like Gestede over Bamford). In Howson's case he was Monk's first signing and look whats happened since then let alone playing Midfield, Right Back and probably as the shortest Centre Back in the Championship. To his credit he has always got his head down and got on with whatever was asked of him without throwing a strop or a sulk.

Is that a sign we missed a couple of transfer targets and just offered them new deals rather than drop down the list so to speak.

Baffling! Friend is past it and Johnson is a League 1 player (at best). I really worry if either of them are to be any more than bit part players next season!

Friend is a fantastic professional and is the type of senior player we should be wanting to keep around. As long as the wage is sensible I can't see how anyone would begrudge giving George another contract. 

 

Johnson on the other hand 🤮

Think people are reading far too much into this deadline by Monday business. In the current market don’t think it’s a bad idea to give them both new deals. Good squad players.

We need numbers in the squad and to do it with little money. It isn’t exciting but I like Georges professionalism and he was decent as CB when we needed him. Johnson is a little more confusing for me as in a way he covers part of the pitch that Coulson does, but again we need more than a first eleven.

Some highlights I picked up on:

Warnock would like another signing by the end of this week.

He's talking up signing players for the spine right now which I assume means wingers are not viewed as a priority?

Specifically mentioned wanting a striker but wants one better than what we have and on the budget we have for a striker (2 million going off the Moore bid) it's hard but he'll keep looking.

Three or four by the end of this month, end of the window will be moving on fringe players and signing players in areas that have underwhelmed in preseason

 Mentioned the market being full of clubs wanting rid of players so he expects more exchanges/free transfers to happen.

Said Grant Hall could be made captain depending what other players he signs.

Johnson 🤮 

Not against friend getting a new contract as a 4th choice cb and 2nd choice left back. For all the criticism, and deservedly so, hes still got a lot of positive attributes that we probably couldn't replace as cheaply as we can get from him.

By deadline he never meant that he was going to just block all of their numbers as soon as it turned midnight on Sunday. It just meant that he was giving them until Monday to think about the move before he starts pushing them

    • 1. Bettinelli Dijksteel, Fry, McNair, Bola Howson, Tav, Morsy Watmore, Britt, Johnson 2. Given our record at the City ground, I'd take a draw. But do think we should look at this game as a chance to pick up 3 points. 3. Britt has a 100% conversion rate when it comes to penalties this season (so far). 4. Hughton can and possibly will, but I'm not sure it'll be this season. 5. Being sat in 7th place surely makes us a playoff candidate now. I think this season we'll be there or there abouts, but not sure we'll actually end up in the playoff spots come match day 46. 6. Pep will. 7. McDonald's I'd say, but even so their quality control is as consistent as Marv's crosses into the box.   
    • Bryn Morris (touted as the next big academy graduate at one stage) has joined Northampton on loan from Portsmouth. Hopefully he can get a decent amount of game time at the Cobblers, he's not really had a look in at Portsmouth.
    • Haha sorry @Brunners. I thought some other poster made the comment about you regarding Roberts. Everything @BillyWoofs_shinpad said bar his comment about Brunners. Whole hearteldy disagree with that particular comment*
    • Roberts will not play for us, Brit unfortunately will.  Burger King or McDonalds, if I had to choose, BK but as fat as I am I don’t particularly buy BK, MD or that finger licking franchise crap.    Still pretty angry about the last game but ha, for no apparent reason I’ll go for a draw.
