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

I know it came out months ago but weird we haven't heard about this again yet, can't see Warnock fitting him in his best XI in a 433 if he really has Prem interest still I can see Wing being sold.

Also we've have been credited with an interest in Jordan Perruzza a Toronto FC 19 year old attacker. A trial is unlikely so whoever moves for him apparently will be required to agree to a loan to buy.

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).

Relevant section:

Quote

The 19-year-old Canadian has tore it up with Toronto FC II in the USL, scoring 15 goals in 24 matches.

Portsmouth, Brentford, Watford, QPR, and Middlesbrough all reportedly have interest in the Canadian, while a couple of German clubs and Italian trio Benevento, Brescia, and Empoli, where Peruzza spent time at before joining the Young Reds in Dec. 2018, are also keen, according to Hamilton.

The ESPN reporter also adds that Peruzza is attracting ‚Äúplenty of interest‚ÄĚ from Premier League teams, as well, but current quarantine regulations make a trial difficult. I‚Äôd assume TFC have also offered the TFC II striker a first-team contract, but with a EU passport, a loan plus option to buy is apparently the most likely outcome.

Thats fine and dandy if you have belief in the people who do those deals.

Noone but Gibson has belief in the clowns at Boro. 

Ronaldo could turn up tomorrow wanting to play for free and Gill and his cronies would claim his stats arent as good as some nobody from league 1, and Bauser would cock it up with his negotiation skills.

I have zero belief trust or confidence in the ability of Gibson, Bausor or Gill to conduct deals, that went a very long time ago. They have repeatedly proved that they couldn't pick the winner in a one horse race. Bevington's departure either meant that they were looking for a scapegoat to blame or more likely he had enough and couldn't stick it any longer after the bullshine of the Golden Thread.

I do however have a lot of hope in the form of Warnock who has probably forgotten more than the three stooges ever learnt when it comes to transfers, signings and contracts.

And I'll say again, in a hotly contested topic on this forum regarding Gibson's continued ownership of our club, something which has gone into all levels of detail and spanned across quite a lot of the members, you don't have a clue what my position on our ownership is if you think I want Gibson gone.

So maybe you should take a page out of your own book and not state what other people's positions are on other topics when you couldn't even let slide a slightly exaggerated statement of your own. And I'll leave it at that.

I haven't looked into every post you put on here and I am sure your view is much more nuanced but generally all I see is on transfer windows and how terribly we are ran. But let's just not respond to each other, it's not worth either of our time

Just on back of what @Lurker said. How much would you take for Fry plus us getting Gibson back

£8m (to us) + Fry or am I being ambitious? 

Fry is 23 in August. Gibson is 28 in Jan so 4.5yr age difference.

I thought the same as you, £8m, however I feel that Burnley still get the better of the deal as they will be able to recoup something on Fry, where we will not on Gibson.

After the Bamford tales and now Gibson who on earth in all seriousness could recommend to Fry that he should go to Burnley to further his career. If he was my son I would make sure he kept well away  from the place at all and at any cost. I have no idea what goes on over there but it appears from the outside looking in that its not a healthy or constructive environment. That said I'm not so sure that Fry is as good as some think and Dyche's history of man management under such circumstances doesn't bode well for the lad.

@Lurker have you heard anything about the new lad, Sam Jackson who joined the recruitment team in April?

He got name dropped by Warnock in an interview as the guy he was talking to re:Transfers. I assume he's in a senior position then?

I spoke to him on LinkedIn and he replied a few times. Seems to be a well grounded guy and said that they are working really hard in conjunction with Warnock to get the players in. I like his attitude and wish him every success but I know that there are some on here who will never be happy and will never give him a chance.

I would snap there hands off at a straight swap, fry has got worse since Karanka gave him his debut.

    • 1. Are you starting to feel optimistic about the season yet? Still no. We've beat arguably the two worst teams in the league. NW has had a huge slice of luck having this run of games, 2. Should Crooks and Payero be our midfield partnership from now on? Yes. I know Neil (and by extension,¬†the Gazette) have been making a big deal out of it, but it is nice to see Crooks take Martin under his wing and hopefully that helps Martin acclimate a bit faster. 3. How many points do you expect from the next 3?¬†¬†Cardiff (A), Birmingham(H), Luton(A) Honestly, 6 minimum - with their form, we should be looking to beat both Cardiff & Birmingham. Luton are a really decent team this year though, so I'd happily take a draw down there. 4. Who is the better manager out of Warnock and McCarthy? That's like asking what's the better pain, being punched in the face or the nads. 5. Starting 11 and formation? ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† Lumley Howson - McNair - Bamba - Peltier ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬†Payero¬†- Crooks Tavernier¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬†-¬† ¬† ¬†¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† Jones/Hernandez ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬†¬†Watmore ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬†Sporar A 4231 / 424 style formation with Watmore playing just off Sporar. Think with how well they've been doing, Payero & Crooks have to stay together, and IMO Howson was much better at RB the other night than I've seen him be in CM in a long time. 6. Who scored the 2nd goal against Barnsley, Sol or Crooksy? Crooks I think, although it was very close!
    • Cardiff City vs Middlesbrough FC ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬† Saturday 23rd October ‚Äď 12:30 pm (Sky Sports) ¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬† Cardiff City Stadium Current standings: Boro continue to climb up the table and we find ourselves in a reasonable 10th place. The Bluebirds are in free fall and Mick Mccarthy might be the most hated man in Cardiff right now. If he doesn't get something from this game he's most likely getting sacked. Views from various Cardiff City fans on social media/forums: "Weird that the bookies have us as favourites when we have lost 7 games in succession conceding 17 goals and scoring 1 and have the worst home record in the division. Fear we will get a draw and be stuck with MM." "1-1 if we are lucky and Boro are poor." "Much better yesterday, we need a bit of luck and maybe a fluky goal and the confidence will slowly return, we are better than those results show, McCarthy has been picking the wrong team for most of those games!" "I‚Äôd take Warnock back tomorrow." "Boro will be too streetwise, one of our ex players bound to score. Think I'd actually applaud Sol even if its a scruffy tap in, fair play to him." "If Bamba gets McCarthy sacked he‚Äôll become Cardiff‚Äôs biggest ever legend" "I‚Äôve been to our last 7 games home and away and seen us score 1 and concede 17. Much better performance tonight but still dire." "Mick McCarthy's recent record at Cardiff City... - Seven defeats in a row - Nine defeats in 10 - One goal in 630 minutes" "Boro will be an interesting game. Neil Warnock getting all the applause while Mick gets all the abuse. The way it should be" "It‚Äôs been 172 days since Cardiff last scored a goal in the first half" Questions: 1. Are you starting to feel optimistic about the season yet? 2. Should Crooks and Payero be our midfield partnership from now on? 3. How many points do you expect from the next 3?¬† Cardiff (A), Birmingham(H), Luton(A) 4. Who is the better manager out of Warnock and McCarthy? 5. Starting 11 and formation? 6. Who scored the 2nd goal against Barnsley, Sol or Crooksy? ¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬†¬† (These wins are coming fast so these threads are getting briefer ūüėĀ) ¬†
    • In Tavs defence, what attacking coaches has he had to work with over the last few years?¬† ¬† Warnock, Pulis and Woodgate were hardly¬†known for their attacking prowess. I‚Äôd say Robbie Keane would have taught him a thing or two but at 22 you can always develop and I‚Äôm sure with more chances he would get more composure.¬† ¬† Id probably say that the whole team could do with a prolonged period of dominance in games to get some more composure and match practice at shooting. Last nights game showed how in the final third we are so nervous in my opinion. Not just Tav but everyone.¬†
    • I think it was Patrick Kielty who once said that when non-Irish do Irish impersonations, its always the Cork accent they imitate.¬†ūüėĀ
    • Just realised I've exactly the same games won/drawn/lost and points as Boro¬†
