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

NW says he has been training at Rockcliffe for the last couple of weeks so his knee must be ok now. NW wants to get him so who would argue with his judgement? Not me.

Clubs will be watching our players. Not fancied to do much critics have been forced to eat their words. A successful January can be measured by not who we get in, but more so who we can successfully keep.

Spot on with that post.

A credible but not expensive option is the best way forward to have a decent squad.

And that's it in a nutshell, decent and competative at this uncertain times

Spence is abit raw still but has great pace. Hence why Warnock used him as winger as Dijksteel is the more rounded beast of a RB

£10m plus a sell on clause and they can take him. Oh and loan him back to us until end of season. Thank you.

If we did sell him, I would hope that we don't loan him back.

It's pointless.

He's not good enough to consistently start for us as is, there's even less incentive to play him if he's no longer our player. 

Look at what happened with Jack Clarke.

Agree to an extent but he does offer us an option and an extra body in an area where we are not loaded for cover. Plus rather he remains for the season if he does go as opposed to try replace him and integrate a new player.

I doubt they even want him. It's probably just the club touting players around again looking for cash.

Everything doesn't have to be a dig at the club FYI

Same report came up all summer and no bids were made for Spence. He hasn't done a lot to improve his stock so far this season. Only difference is the team is winning. 

With that said if there was a high bid for him that would allow us to re-invest in other places then he is likely the player to bring in the money. Ill trust NW.

    • Brilliant shout erimus & my mates favourite player Not long after signing for the Boro he was mistaken as one of the members of the Great train robbery team, released soon after though  I should have thought of him, he would have definetly gone in to my fact of the day  He also ran a pub back in Swansea 
    • You were missed after the Derby game, it's good to see you back. Two goals in two games now, the lad is on fire 💪
    • Assombalonga wasn't a mythical striker who scored goals for fun at this level though.  He scored 15 goals and then 14 goals before he joined us.  He then scored 15 goals and 14 goals for us.  We got exactly what we paid for, it's just that we paid far too much for him in the first place.  I'm not sure what it is about this that people don't get, unless they convinced themselves he was a 20+ striker somehow? Hugill is a beast of a striker.  The best season Hugill has had at this level was last season when he scored 13 goals.  He's only ever hit double figures twice at this level.  When they played in the same team, Hugill got 6 goals, Assombalonga got 14, albeit Assombalonga played more minutes, but he didn't play double the minutes.  Ah, but Hugill is the better all round player.  Hugill has 7 assists in his career at this level, Assombalonga has 6.  Hugill is a beast, Assombalonga is rubbish 🤷‍♂️ I think the bigger problem we have is the expectations that we place on some of these players.  The likes of Boyd and McDonald were players who had done ok at a relatively weak level of competition only.  Rhodes did well at this level but in a different set up to the one he joined when he came here, and we made no attempt to replicate that - that's one reason why an owner shouldn't decide to buy players. I'd say that we have three strikers who appear to be much of a muchness.  I doubt any of them would hit 20 a season at this level, they'd all top out at around 15 I reckon.  All you can do, as you mention, is attempt to play to their strengths as much as possible, or accept that if you don't then you will get inconsistent performances.  15 goals a season from a striker is fine, unless you spent £15m on that striker, in which case that's your own fault for not understanding what you are purchasing.
    • Similar thoughts to Changing Times. I don't have that much interest in returning until the crowds are back properly.
