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


Recommended Posts

Depends how you look at it. If we have solid CBs (Hall and Gibson) behind 3 gritty [ish] CMs (Howson, Saville, McNair), then you could hypothetically look to play Spence and Coulson (both a little weak defensively but decent pace offensively) if a 4-3-3.

We'd basically be the Championship version of Liverpool ūüėČ

But I agree that Coulson and Spence do look suited as wing-backs in a back 5.

Hi guys! PAOK fan here from Greece. You are getting a really hard worker in Akpom. He is a top lad and a good professional. When he first came, he was considered a bench player. It was the 2018-19 sea

Morsy nearly done

Williams fee nearly agreed. 1.75million rising to 2.5 (So 1.75 then ūüėā).

I cant see us looking at the European leagues for the time being,  especially if players have to potentially quarantine for 14 days.. we don't have the luxury of that time before the season starts

Imo The problem Coulson has is that he is poor defensively and always seems to get caught out..  And I don't think he is good enough attacking to be am out an out winger. He looks great going forward from deep. I reckon his best position would be LWB but that's only if we play with 5 at the back which I can't see us doing on a regular basis. Hopefully he is working on his defending because if he sorts that out he could be a top player. But if he sees himself as a winger I can't see him lasting very long at this level 

To be fair to the lad though, this was his first season as a LB. He has some good attributes but will need rewiring and with proper coaching would probably understand his defensive responsibilities more. At 22 though he will have to learn them quickly but its not impossible.

Yeh I agree and I hope he does learn because there's definatly a player there

Think he's always been a LB, hasn't he?

Don't agree with what Gestede did / said. I half understand the logic of why he's asked for a 6 month extension should he get an injury - it's a protection policy. And I get why some of the other players elsewhere have refused to extend contracts, especially those who have their careers ahead of them and haven't had a stellar deal to date - a footballers career is short. But, end of the day, how much had the club already ploughed into Gestede's pocket - when he's either been unavailable or sh*te prior. He should have given something back to the club that has given him so much, even if that involved a 'risk'. I'd have more sympathy for his demands if he'd contributed ANYTHING previous.

Seriously, what an absolute c*nt.

Correct ! 
Complete wretch

We need to be looking at European leagues for the bargains. Its about time we had some foreign flair back.

Uhh careful there. Stuff like that is frowned upon on hereūüėȬ†EFL experience‚úä

Whatever happened to Max Kilman? @Duvel get in the bushes and have a look.

Not sure mate, I think they are still in Europe though so I wouldn't expect to hear anything yet anyway.

Fulham currently got 4 wide men on their books in knockaert, cavelerio, kamara and kebano.

If they go up and I hope they do i can't help but feel Kamara is a Warnock type wide player in the mendez-laing mould. Season loan perhaps?

Been having a look at that young 19 year old PSG centre back we have been linked with Mbe Soh. I must say he looks quality and it would be a proper coup if he came like. I mean on YouTube he played against Bayern Munich in a friendly at 17 and looked class. video

I think it'll just be paper talk, personally

    • Delighted to see AJ got absolutely battered by Usyk, I've been saying¬† for weeks that he was severely underestimating his opponent YET AGAIN. He's never going to fight Fury (probably a good thing, Fury would murder him!)
    • A Cardiff¬†v¬†West Brom H Huddersfield v Blackburn H Hull v Blackpool D Middlesbrough v Sheffield Utd A Preston v Stoke H QPR v Birmingham H Barnsley v Nottingham Forest D Derby v Reading H Fulham v Swansea H Luton v Coventry D Millwall v Bristol City A Peterbrough v Bournemouth
    • While we have a regressive Manager playing regressive football which as you say is the complete opposite to us except that when I actually type it it looks real scary. A regressive Manager playing regressive football. How bad can it get and where is it going to take us? ¬†
    • Our fixtures become¬†interesting after Sheffield United. Away to Hull next Saturday then we have a run of Home games to Peterborough and Barnsley then Away to Cardiff,¬†Warnock's old Club who are struggling (although not quite as bad as ourselves), Home to Birmingham, Away to Luton before we go to the Hawthorns to face the Baggies on the 6th Nov. We then have two consecutive Home games against Millwall and Preston before a trip to Huddersfield on the 27th November. On paper there are some very "winnable" games amongst that lot so would it be fair to let Warnock have that run to save himself and get things back on track or is it too risky to let the performances continue and see¬†those potential points frittered away like we have all year? It could be argued that it would be¬†reasonable¬†to give him those games but the reality is that we are seeing nothing that gives us any reason whatsoever that Warnock has a grip and is going to tun it around. There has been little logic,¬†shape or reason as to how he sets his sides up. Our defence is as poor as I have seen from¬†a Boro side in¬†a long time. If we were solid at the back, keeping¬†clean sheets while boring us to death there would at least be some merit in his thinking but porous doesn't begin to describe us. Our Midfield¬†is a disjointed mess, they cant cover and shield the defence and they can't set up attacking passages of play. They seem to run around chasing back (or more likely chasing their man to mark) after we lose possession or running up chasing long punts, then running back again, then running up again meanwhile¬†adding little of merit or quality. It's clear that it is due to tactics rather than them all being useless (including Howson in fairness). Their passing and ball retention is painful to watch rendering them a weak and ineffective unit regardless of personnel. The fact that we are lamenting the loss of a fairly basic clogger in Morsy illustrates just how desperate we have sunk and how low our expectations now are. Attack? I can only chuckle at the thought of us actually looking like we can attack and record efforts be they on or off target. With just about zero threat or opportunities, bereft of any quality of service we look¬†hopeless. ¬†Ikpeazu can be a real¬†handful and Sporar has class yet neither seem to be effective in a Warnock side.¬† We have played many¬†teams already with far fewer resources than Warnock has at his disposal and have been found wanting on each and every occasion with the exception of bottom of the table Forest who immediately sacked their Manager. Derby are a basket case and a collection of journeymen players and Rooney's¬†nous (Rooney and nous in the same sentence is something I thought I would never be typing) but they comfortably nullified Warnock. Mark Robbins and¬†Coventry (with their own set of off field issues for years) and limited budget of a side bettered us with ease.¬†Reading with an inexperienced Keeper (not that it mattered as his Kit won't need to have been washed by the end of all that added time), and a defence consisting of midfielders square pegged into a makeshift defence kept us at bay with such ease it was demoralising. Then there was Blackpool and copy and paste. A terrible disorganised Defence, a Midfield that seemingly has a confused purpose and an Attack that rarely if ever threatens leaves me with little reason for optimism. I'm not even sure where to begin in terms of sorting it all out as it is so far off the ideal in every single department that it is scary as to how bad we have become and how likely it is to continue unabated because there are absolutely no signs of something clicking or even just misfiring. It's the dampest of damp squibs. Its like the end of Strachan and Mogga all over, all the signs are glaringly obvious and I suspect the players must¬†think the same despite them being "a¬†smashing bunch of lads really". If SG made a change now it could get worse but by how much? If he doesn't it could get better but again by how much? Weighing everything up I can't see anything to suggest anything but more of the same for the last quarter of the year and by that time we could be lamenting more lost points against mediocre to poor sides and seriously deep in relegation territory. Hull and Peterborough will be looking at their fixtures against us and seeing them as winnable six pointers, this against a side that had the Play Offs as the target only a few weeks back. ¬† ¬†
    • Warnock shouldn't abuse referees. But I don't think boro fans should be calling our manager expletives online. It makes us all look silly. I imagine if we beat Sheffield United 3-0 then nobody will be calling him a p**** then. He won't be here much longer.
