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

Recommended Posts

Get the impression the club told the local media (Gazette and Echo) that a deal for Bolasie was never close. They weren’t banking on him putting something out on Twitter.

 

I don’t imagine we’ll hear anything from Gibson about another failed transfer window, he has after all spoken to the press twice already this week about how he thinks the billionaire owners of the “big 6” are the saviours of English football...

Who has Benkovic ended up at?

Think he ended up at Cardiff? Might be wrong

Whenever you feel things are going bad. It is good to remember that Wayne Rooney’s derby County have currently scored 2 goals in 5 matches

I’m equally as gutted with this and past failings point in the direction of our club to blame but I don’t think we can 100% say it just yet until possibly Warnock speaks next. Reading Everton forum they are adamant it will likely have something to do with him or the club rather than us.... They equally hammering him for always appearing to have the right face on social media. 
Think personally I’ll hang fire before being annoyed with MFC on this transfer. 
Before this morning I honestly thought under the current climate and the speeches Gibson has been making regarding the bailout, our business hadn’t been too bad with possibly only 1 or 2 short for a playoff push which is much closer than what I was thinking at the end of last season.

They were planning on painting bolasie to be the bad one. Didn’t bank on him speaking truth on Twitter. Would love some players too do the same maybe Woodrow viewing a house in yarm when we pull the plug ( blame Barnsley for playing him in cup against us)

I wish this had gone that way and Bolasie exposing the club as liars for the sceptics to finally see

NB “We’ve made profits Steve despite our best efforts to *** money up the wall on ***, I might have to sign someone but I don’t know how to! The last time we did this you built that big *** off hotel and golf course that we keep giving to players for free that never join us. Now you are building that big *** off house people are going to start connecting the dots.”
SG“calm the *** down Neil and put some clothes on, we’ve been here before and got through it and we will again. I’ve got it! The stupid *** still think I’m one of them, I’ll use the gazette phone and say we are all doomed and if we don’t take this deal on offer we’ll all die. Then if that goes down the shitter and other clubs who I’ve said will all die as well still keep spending money and getting players, we’ll ring a few clubs and ask if anyone is for sale, then when they call back if you keep talking but pretend your in a tunnel we’ll run out of time and it will look like we tried!”

NB “but are people really that gullible Steve, I mean we’ve spent money on *** again and your big *** off house is coming on a treat, surely they’ll rumble that you just talk *** and have turned into a big Tory gobshite that treats the fans like mushrooms?”

SG “I’ll give them a free pint next season as well”

NB “don’t ever leave me Steve”

disclaimer: may or may not have happened

Neil Bausor can do one, seriously.

Do you honestly believe it’s down to Bausor? He’s just doing what the owner is instructing him to do. This rests on Gibson.

They must have panicked when Everton reduced their demands 🙂

Bringing in Rahman, Benkovic, Bolasie, Zohore/Woodrow we'd have stood every chance of going up this year. We'd have had an abundance of options and would have stood every chance of challenging at the top.

To be fair we were never getting all of these. I reckon we cuda got 2 of them though which would have put us into the play off picture.

    • Merson, Gazza, Maradona and Best had their demons but were brilliant players. Jones is immature and has little natural talent to compensate for his indiscretions. Not much correlation between him and the others, IMO, and very little reason for us to spend money we don't appear to have on him.
    • He was banned from driving after a dangerous piece of driving around Glasgow which showed his decision making isn't particularly clever not to mention being irresponsible and selfish with scant regard to others. Thankfully he didn't kill anyone like others in the profession before him have. It's sad that the likes of Merson, Gazza, Maradona and Best etc. all had their demons but were still able to perform and function, the majority crash and burn, destroying their careers in the process.
    • Until we realise whatever another club is prepared to pay for them we can only estimate what we think their value is worth. McNair wasn't cheap and until this season he looked just about OK for the money we spent. We spent a million pounds Goalkeeper now out on loan replacing him with a nomad in footballing terms (Stoj is still on the books but not in the squad). Then there was the ridiculous fee paid for Saville (not his fault nor Britt's come to that). If you think that the squad isn't decreasing in value then you are entitled to your opinion but I only see a downwards trend. The sale of Bamford probably was the defining reality from which we haven't altered direction then we have Randolph's replacement who wasn't to the same monetary value (or ability). Without doubt we have some good prospects but that doesn't alter that we are now trying to buy cheap and sell high as oppose to years of buying high and selling low. I haven't a problem with following that business model, it's how we existed for decades before SG arrived, selling the likes of Souness, Mills, Johnson and later on Pallister etc. but to me the value trend of our squad is a diminishing one.
    • He was banned for 7 matches after attending a party, he's not even made the bench since. Before that he'd finally got back in to the side and scored. He's burned his bridges, but it's not just down to ability. Funny thing is, dozens of players have done the same thing in the top flight in England and gotten away with it without punishment.
    • I don't think Jones has the ability at this level so I wouldn't want to bring him back. Then the off field issues that led to him leaving Boro in the first place don't seem to have improved any at Rangers. We have had some of the best from the Old Firm that seriously struggled down here before in the Championship. That he can't even force his way into Gerrard's thinking tells me where his future level is.
