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

Recommended Posts

Think we really need to act quick to get Morsy  done. Derby are now linked with Byrne and surely there are only so many players that Wigan/admin need and want to sell.

It would be very unusual for a manager to announce the system he is going to play at the beginning of the season, why would he do that? 
Much better to have options and not have to play 3 cbs. 

Aye. I think that's what he meant when he said he wanted plan A, B, C and D.

Byrne is supposedly the other player forcing his way out, so I wouldn't be surprised to see Morsy follow suit quick enough.

Then where do you play Tav?

In a 5-3-2 Tav could play in a 3 with a holding midfielder and someone like Howson/McNair. 

You could have Roberts playing off the striker in that formation as well. 

I'm not saying that's what I'd do but i could see the thinking behind that formation.

Expected signings by now

Warnock admits he expected to have about four signings by now and admits he is bitterly disappointed.

Says they've got to get players in because the bench in very fragile.

Asked about Morsy, says he's been optimistic about many players and they've not been able to get any over the line, so until he signs on the dotted line he won't say much.

Sam Morsy

Asked about Morsy, says he's been optimistic about many players and they've not been able to get any over the line, so until he signs on the dotted line he won't say much.

On Bettinelli

Says he's optimistic of signing a GK today. That is of course Bettinelli arriving on loan from Fulham

"Optimistic of signing a keeper today"

Is that because he's already signed and been seen with the shirt?

Why are they struggling with transfers?

Been very close on four or five occasions but not get them over the line.

Says that's life at the moment and Boro just have to carry on.

He's still optimistic they can bring a few in.

    • Barcelona first team players have a agreed to a paycut of £110 Million (per year). This is on top of the squad agreeing to defer £45 Million in bonuses. There was talk at the beginning of this month that if they couldn't cut around £150 Million off the wage bill for this season, that the threat of bankruptcy was very real.
    • As others have said, I would guess that the team that finished the derby game will likely start this fixture, with those who were subbed being introduced late on. The 5 subs rule allows us to comfortably rotate an entire attacking setup. Very useful if you have a good enough manager to utilise it.
    • If you dont mind a short drive get yourself booked into Art La Vey up towards Newcastle. That guy is head and shoulders above most in Boro. Mark at Nothingsacred in Stockton is class if you're wanting some dotwork done
    • H Birmingham City v Millwall H Blackburn Rovers v Barnsley H Cardiff City v Luton Town D Derby County v Wycombe Wanderers A Huddersfield Town v Middlesbrough H Norwich City v Coventry City A Rotherham United v AFC Bournemouth D Sheffield Wednesday v Stoke City H Watford v Preston North End   SUNDAY 29TH NOVEMBER A Nottingham Forest v Swansea City
    • Knowing the quality of the Daily Fail, they probably have Fulham as the Premiership club wanting him. It boils down to the lad's views on his future, his contract ends there ends in the summer, so everything in his hands, If he does not fancy move, then "agreement on terms could not be reached. If he wants away, not a lot we can do to stop him but there are not that many top rem teams looking for keepers, so it should be fairly easy to work out likely suspects, assuming not jut agent talk trying to get us to make decent offer in future
