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

Recommended Posts

People have admired Brentford’s approach to transfer dealings for ages now - as soon as we’re interested in the same player as them, he’s written off as being not good enough and a hoofball specialist. Couldn’t make it up!

Wonder if we've looked at Charlie Kirk, Bez Lubala or Randell Williams from league 2 

I assume us going for Goode means we've been priced out of Rob Dickie 

If we were interested in Dickie we could use Browne as a make weight.

Don't tell me we are chasing a young player from a lower league club that Brentford are also interested in. Do we never learn and what makes it worse is that he creates opportunities at the other end of the pitch. Pffft, I'm truly disgusted, Warnock out!

Doesn't seem to want to get on the end of crosses.  Can't Warnock find someone better 🤦‍♂️

Just started watching the play-off final from League 2 and the first highlight is Goode taking a long-throw, there's another one crossed off the bingo card.

I think you need to get yourself a hobby mate 🙂

Seems very highly rated by Northampton and their fans. They are pretty upset on twitter.

He's under 25 but not under 21, is 6 foot 5, just captained a team to promotion, was a standout player in his league and is slated to cost at most 750K is there a catch somewhere because he seems like a good signing to me?

Nothing about Boro is analogous to a man lost in the desert and about to die.  A bad season and people start going absolutely bloody daft it seems 🙄

Depends on how you get out of the desert or the derriere of the Championship in our case. It didn't take long for someone to mention a Camel from Northampton for all the Ferrari lovers throwing their monogrammed driving gloves off in indignation.

Anthony O'Connor was watched during Woodgate's time . Bradford City. One of the stand out players for Aberdeen in 17/18 season when they finished 2nd-place finish behind Celtic. Big defender who is a threat from corners.

Personally I wouldnt mind Maya Yoshida at Southampton who is coming back from Sampdoria on loan. Out of contract.

This is exactly kind of player we should be looking at... This guy is a winner, he is young (but not naive), hes achieved things, he is a talker and a leader!

Worst case is we lose a few hundred thousand on him, makes a big change from us losing millions plus there is the hope that he might be the next Harry Maguire and heaven forbid we actually climb the table and/or sell him Brentford style and make a few quid on the way.

He isn't a camel and we can't get hold of any Ferraris.  It's also not a choice between the two.

Don't start taking the hump and come over with your Camelism. Besides its my parable and I'm sure someone will want a Ferrari in the desert. 🙂

From what I've heard of Kirk, he could be a potential captain in the future......if we can cling on to him

Ferrari the camel.

So you can have both.
