The Summer/Autumn transfers thread 2020 aka Warnocks free agent bargain bin extravaganza

Recommended Posts

I was listening to talk sport on the way into work this morning, Mario Melchiot was on talking about chelsea. He was saying the defenders there are all similar types of players and how that was a bad thing.

If you look at our team. all of them are the same we've had a group of midfielders who all do the same thing for donkeys years. 

To find the right balance we need to have many different style players, tacklers, runners, creative, skillful, aggressive, talkers, leaders etc. 

looking at the squad we have a group of players with no style, they are all robots and the boring unexciting football served up in the past is down to players/manager collectively. 

Hall ticks the right boxes hes something different to what we had. Roberts was like that to. I hope we do sign this stewart. he may be no better or even worse than what we have but he is a different type of player and may help with the teams balance. Roberts and sanogo are different to. sanogo might be a big unsless turd, but he will offer something different.

Couldn’t agree more.

Seem to have 2 decent strikers these Ryan Hardie and Luke Jephcott, Jephcott 7 in 14 last season 20 years old. Wish we could watch to see how whoever we start CB do

They lost their Marcus Maddison type player though George Cooper, went back to Peterborough after his loan ended

Watched Argyle with my lad a lot last season. Hardie was brilliant and I have said a few times how much I would have liked him at Boro if he hadn't committed to Argyle for another season. Jephcott was a rags-to-riches story, was out on loan at Truro and got called back due to injuries and he just hit the ground running. Big time.

Cooper and Mayor easily the standout performers for them. Mayor played as the 10 and Cooper on the Left hand side cutting in. Both very creative. Mayor very one-footed though.

For what it's worth, Lux Park is 10 minutes away from me. Got to go to Liskeard tomorrow so I'll find some suitable bushes and put my best KM hat on...

I'm surprised Blackpool loaned him out again when Plymouth are in the same league now, especially with them losing Gnanduillet

Thankfully I’ve not heard any news on the proposed redundancies, maybe the club have changed their minds. 

I can %100 assure you they haven’t. They have told all involved end of the week they will find out.  Some have already gone.

Full media blackout seems very strange. Maybe Gibson is involved?

Ben, or Steve? They've both got reasons to want to hide from the media...

Hope you are right. If we can magically wrap deals up for Stewart, Sanogo and Gibson this week and then add Roberts and another prem winger like Clarke up later then the squad is looking much better. Just need a left back then. I'm not getting my hopes up though.

At least that’s something. Britt earns more in a week than most the staff do in a year. Once again Stevie Gibson man of the people doing his thing.

    • That’s fair enough but being so reckless in 2017 put us in the position of signing cheap league 1 players last summer. Ironically the monk summer was far worse than this summer. The level of incompetence to sanction spending nearly £40m on central strikers when we already had bamford, gestede and (wether he wanted to leave or not) Stuani at the club was staggering. We could have had an excellent attack that season with stuani, bamford and traore and just blew the budget on a left sided player.  
    • Indecision, he looked left and their lb was marked, turned inside and seen Saville blocking that route, didn’t want to hoof cos instructions. Ended up doing nothing.
    • I am aware there have been no results recently and I do apologise. I'll catch up this weekend and upload the next few rounds at the same time
    • 0-2 Akpom and Howson
    • Echo thoughts of others. Tough away game. A point I would happily take giving us 5pts from a tough week. I expect maybe Tav to come in for Roberts just for purposes of fresh legs. And possibly Bola for Johnson. Dont expect to see Britt Cant afford to rest Northern Ireland lads yet. Prediction. 1 all.
