Another defensive player. Are we going to go through another window where we don’t address our creativity fgs. 

We've literally just been linked with a Murphy brother.

Wouldn't be a transfer window without you wetting the bed 😂

I'm behind this link, I really want us to sign a proper defensive midfielder to play him behind howson and tav in a three. What I dont want to see is a defensive midfielder alongside howson and saville. That would be very pulis.

If we're signing defensive players on frees, it might mean we'll spend more on attacking players.

I think this is absolutely the case. We know we've tried to get a LB on a loan, a 6 figure fee for Amos and at CB we're bidding around 750k for Goode right now, then GK the favourite seems Phillips whose price is set at 800k we're not breaking the bank making any of these moves to bring in defensive bodies.

Offset the GK outlay with a Pears sale you can see the logic for Warnock, Murphy on a loan then maybe Hoilett and a 1-2 million pound striker you could be looking at a Karanka era splurge of around 4-5 million which I don't think breaks the bank especially if we can squeeze a couple of sales in there.

All successful sides are built off a solid defence, plus hes said he wants upto 6 players so I'd imagine 1 or 2 will be attack minded players

Seems like more rumours today than the past 2 weeks combined. I suppose a lot of players have been on holiday and now they’re back their agents are getting down to work.

Totally agree but in the last couple of windows we’ve brought in a lot of defensive players and always leave it too late to bring in any attacking players. I just hope history does not repeat itself.

Decent age. Championship experience. Free. Combine that with getting Grant hall on a free and thats a pretty tidy start to business this window.

Neil Harris is heavily implying we offered Moore better wage terms than he has signed at Cardiff.

"I'll be honest, he could've taken more lucrative offers from elsewhere in the country, but he wanted to come and play for Cardiff and he wanted to come and play for me. That's a big thing."

Guess that Cardiff pull for Moore did mean something, even when we offer the most money to players they find a way to go elsewhere! Sounds like we really are backing Warnock to the hilt though especially if it's true that Moore isn't even top 2 on the list...

    • You were missed after the Derby game, it's good to see you back. Two goals in two games now, the lad is on fire 💪
    • Assombalonga wasn't a mythical striker who scored goals for fun at this level though.  He scored 15 goals and then 14 goals before he joined us.  He then scored 15 goals and 14 goals for us.  We got exactly what we paid for, it's just that we paid far too much for him in the first place.  I'm not sure what it is about this that people don't get, unless they convinced themselves he was a 20+ striker somehow? Hugill is a beast of a striker.  The best season Hugill has had at this level was last season when he scored 13 goals.  He's only ever hit double figures twice at this level.  When they played in the same team, Hugill got 6 goals, Assombalonga got 14, albeit Assombalonga played more minutes, but he didn't play double the minutes.  Ah, but Hugill is the better all round player.  Hugill has 7 assists in his career at this level, Assombalonga has 6.  Hugill is a beast, Assombalonga is rubbish 🤷‍♂️ I think the bigger problem we have is the expectations that we place on some of these players.  The likes of Boyd and McDonald were players who had done ok at a relatively weak level of competition only.  Rhodes did well at this level but in a different set up to the one he joined when he came here, and we made no attempt to replicate that - that's one reason why an owner shouldn't decide to buy players. I'd say that we have three strikers who appear to be much of a muchness.  I doubt any of them would hit 20 a season at this level, they'd all top out at around 15 I reckon.  All you can do, as you mention, is attempt to play to their strengths as much as possible, or accept that if you don't then you will get inconsistent performances.  15 goals a season from a striker is fine, unless you spent £15m on that striker, in which case that's your own fault for not understanding what you are purchasing.
    • Similar thoughts to Changing Times. I don't have that much interest in returning until the crowds are back properly.
    • I cannot believe some are still trying to defend Britt! Must be to save face. As a player, he has gone backwards. 2 goals in 2 games can easily be misconstrued. His first, everyone’s granny could have bscored that. The penalty? Good penalty. This fails to cover up his deficiencies. The guy should be working on his game - maybe he is. Frankly, if this is the case it isn’t working. He is one of the weakest links we have.
    • Thanks for that. Seen a few reports about the test games but they only tell you about the seating arrangements
