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

Recommended Posts

Hopefully rumours about Woodrow are true. He would be a top signing. Then presumably the other striker would be a big /  hold up type

Manager Neil Warnock and his backroom team fear Sanogo won’t be fully match fit for a number of weeks.

That would deprive them of a front man early in the season, with Warnock keen to hit the ground running with a stable of four senior strikers.

I know he hasn't had much of a pre season but surely he can't be so unfit it would take a "number of weeks" to get him up to speed! He must be horribly out of shape!

No problems from me if that’s the case. Thankfully we seemed to have learned from Gestede..

Surely we should had concerns over his fitness anyway. It’s defo not that. He will of failed a medical but we won’t wanna embarrass the lad incase he can’t get another club

He's not played a match in 6 months, and he barely played in those games as he was coming back from injury.

He's not played a full 90 minutes in 8 months.

Honestly using a players past record against them is rather silly to be honest.. I seem to recall both Harry Kane and Jamie Vardy having really poor records in the championship yet have gone on to be brilliant goal scorers for both club and country.

Hardly a similar comparison.  Kane went on loan before he was 21.  Pretty much since 2013/14 he has been in the Spurs team and has been really rather good.

Sanogo has not had a similar history and they're about the same age.

That would make it sound like he's been doing very little fitness work for weeks. I mean, I'm just making it up at this point but if that is the case, that would make it even worse that his agent has been going around trying to get him £30k+ a week.

I see this as a positive and have a sneaky feeling it might force gibson to push the boat out and back warnock with someone further up the list who had previsouly been a no go, think he needs to give warnock what hes asking for to keep him happy, as we know warnock doesnt mind walking away at any point if he feels things arnt working out.

We must be close to some better striker thought to have the confidence to pull the plug on this deal
