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

Recommended Posts

Blackburn linked with Hofmann who was at Brentford once upon a time 

Surprised we're not linked tbh, 2. Bundesliga where Warnock signed Glatzel, target man and 17 goals 6 assists last season

@reluctantnicko

Burnley. Also trying for Joe Worrall at Forest. Would swap Ben Gibson if it worked. Worrall would want to know first team prospects. Sheff U also still keen on him for squad too.

@reluctantnicko

Middlesbrough. Bristol City. Both fighting it out for Joe Williams. Wigan midfielder. Player. Fixed fee involved. Depends if either reach it. Decent move for lad either way.

I think Burnley will be trying to swap or loan Gibson to anyone who is remotely interested or anyone who has a semi decent centre back. Its hardly a surprise that.

The positive of that is they still owe us £6million which would be very welcome

Wing scored 7 goals before lockdown and then never got a look in under Warnock. So to say he had a poor season is unfair. He scores goals. That is what he does. 

The trick is working out if he can fit in a Warnock team. But not his fault if Warnock doesn't like him.

 

He did get a look in to be fair but looked massively out of his depth, I say this as a fan of the lad too. Whether it was burnout or what, in the second half of the season Wing looked far from good enough so he needs to sort himself out

Wing took 81 shots last season and scored 7 goals which means that for every goal he scored he missed over 11 (the majority ending up in the back of the stand). Apart from being able to score the odd screamer he offers absolutely nothing to the team. He’s got no pace, can’t tackle, can’t header, has no positional awareness. It was like playing with 10 men at times. It also definitely wasn’t helped by the fact that Woodgate was trying to turn him into some sort of box to box midfielder, which he definitely isn’t but I don’t see him fitting into a warnock side where everyone is required to give 110%

Hopefully..  but if Fry doesn't want to go to Burnley we probably don't have much else to offer them.

Savile scored 10 in 44 in 17/18 - so he could be the box-to-box goal scoring midfielder we need if played correctly.

McNair scored 5 in 16 in 17/18 - so he could also be the goalscoring midfielder we need if played correctly.

What we don't have is the Championship Kante - someone who destroys and sits in front of the defence.  

What we absolutely need are wingers, preferably with pace, preferably wingers who both score and assist - Murphy would be an excellent start.

You mean someone like Adam Clayton?🙂

I'm sure I read somewhere they were linked with Spence?

@diggerlad07 have you heard any snippets? Any outgoings?? Seems like we are in talks with this Dan Blazer. 

Not a lot i'm afraid other than really pushing for Ben Gibson. Fry refusing to move once again for 3rd consecutive window.

Last I heard Roberts was a no go because Man city want a permanent transfer but said he would let us know later in the month if nothing materialised on a permanent basis and was heading back out on loan.

Not surprised with Friend leaving since he was only offered 5k a week on a year's contract. 

Just been reading the forum over the past few days and I am surprised the amount of comments regarding lack of signings.

The market hasnt really got going yet and we are struggling to persuade players to join after the season we have just had.

We're not offering the money to attract players over other clubs as we have done in the past either which won't help.

My God, would Boro want to sell Spence? He looks like one of the few hopefuls to me.

    • How anyone can watch those ŕeplays and claim its a definate penalty is beyond everybody else. It was not a foul.
    • What I will say is I wish we played like we did in the 2nd half all the time because we'd be a far better team. Ball on the floor and use the technical players we have to create spaces and opportunities. Not long ball after long ball to 6ft and under forwards up against giant centre halves!  For me the play offs is a tall order now unless we go on a great run, which with our inconsistency so far this season looks unlikely. However, next season if we can retain the likes of Bolasie, Kebano, NML and add a quality goalkeeper and striker I think we'll have a great chance. 
    • Well... What a ****heap of a day... I don't get to follow much in Lockdown as I spend 7.5 hours online tutoring on saturdays - but having watched back? Jesus Christ. Our play-off hopes are diminishing. If we don't make it, I'll be rooting for Barnsley. The turnaround under Ismaël is nothing short of incredible. They're also the only other viable northern club in contention...
    • Surprised by Quest as last week they were talking about how abuse of refs isn't right. But they has to be something done want some sort of VAR  in the championship as is very much a big spotlight on it. If a ref makes a blunder it can hinder their career like the Blackburn ref he hasn't had a game since.  I don't want VAR to rule of finger nail offsides but if they could see these game defining incidents would be alot less controversy and loss in reputation for the refs. As that ref must be feeling very anxious his decisions been shared all across social media right around the world. If was VAR the spotlight wouldn't be on him he wouldn't be receiving the abuse. Its needed to protect the refs really otherwise spirals out control.  In league 1 or 2 isn't the same like spotlight on it doesn't matter as much.
