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

Recommended Posts

Our announcements are always 12:30 or 5:00. Perhaps Bettinelli 12:30 and Sanogo 5:00?

So who do we still have and actively working on?

Morsy, Woodrow, Robert's? Anyone else?

Assuming Sanogo and Bettinelli are done.

RAF, Lurker?

How many previous managers are now having the same problem, they seem fine being able to get the players up here even staying over so i dont see the 'club or area as the problem' only my view but its got to be when they sit down to negotiate, if going by what we are led to believe we have healthy wage budget to use so maybe the main issue is the agent fees and we know how gibson feels about these.

Scott Wilson said no other signings apart from Bettinelli expected before Watford game

This Sanogo must be taking the mick if we're still negotiating after all this time.

It doesn't sound like we are still negotiating, it sounds like it's only the medical left

This is my feeling as well. From what Warnock has said though the agents and players are living in cloud cuckoo land. Obviously he has got to put a positive spin on it but to be fair I don't see all these players we've "missed out on" rocking up anywhere else on huge bumper contracts (except Sheff Wed apparently...). There are loads of free agents around that seem to be struggling to get signed as well. They don't seem to realise we are in COVID times and everyone is going to be cautious with their money.

Give it some time, things will start moving towards the end of the window. Just hopefully they'll start moving for us too.

I read an article this am stating numerous clubs in the championship are facing bankruptcy due to HMRC demanding their deferred tax. This amounts to 4-5million per club. This is bound to have an impact on our recruitment I would have thought. If HMRC are going to push this I am sure there will be bargains to be had later in the window if we are in a position to add to our costs. After reading that I am more resigned to having to wait.

People have been saying that he's been due for/doing his medical for days.

Not that I'd expect him to play against Watford, he'll be very short of match fitness with the amount of time he's had off.

FootballInsider have been a step ahead of our locals this summer they broke our Morsy interest and Sanogo talks so if someone's told them he's set for a medical Thursday evening I'm inclined to believe it.

Warnock says Grant Hall was agreed basically before he came to the club, which is interesting.

    • I kind of get this, we won’t go down but it’s unlikely we will go up or even make the playoffs, we are just way too inconsistent and don’t score enough, and until we clear out the strike force and get abit more creativity we are unlikely to have much money to spend. January signings also usually take a while to settle and get up to speed.
    • There is nothing to suggest Hall has persistent injuries like Ayala, he had a bad one but then played 30 games last season before the season was paused. There is nothing to say he can't find fitness long term for us
    • I agree, very rarely do clubs allow decent players to leave in the January window. If a particular "bargain" becomes available then fine but we usually overpay to sign dross that most of us on here know will crash and burn before a ball is kicked, (Guedioura and Gestede come all too readily readily to mind). Whoever comes in needs to be available to play immediately and not waiting until they get fit. It makes more sense to loan players at this stage and then do our shopping in the Summer when 150 contracts will have have expired.
    • I am surprised at that @TheJew. Given you seem to predict we will lose most games I assume you would think there are weaknesses across the entire team that need addressing. Therefore might as well start some of that rebuild now if we can so the major overhaul in summer which I assume you believe squad needs is not as demanding.
    • I actually don't see the point in signing anyone this window.
