The January Transfer Window 2021 AKA "Didn't we do well"

Recommended Posts

Charlie Wyke has got 15 goals for the season with the mackhems so atleast he's making a career

There’s plenty of lads left us and are still in the game which is a credit to them and the academy.

Not sure in recent times if any have gone onto better things. 

Furture England keeper Steele is at Brighton

It happens with alot of youtb players that leave. But can you think of one that we have let go in recent times and has actually done anything. Same was said for ben liddle. Im sure he dosnt get much of a look in for bristol rovers 

He's made one sub appearance in the FA cup. Doesn't get anywhere near their first team normally.

I think league one is about Wyke level tbh. He migbt bottom end championship at best.

Only one we let go who had several good seasons was Danny Graham but he was here when we arguably had one of the best set of strikers in this clubs history in hasselbaink, viduka, yakubu and Massimo so no criticism of club letting him go.

We had Chris brunt on the books and let him go before giving him an Opportunity, he's made a very good career for himself. 

Slightly different because they were essentially established first teamers (or at least squad players), but cattermole and Morrison were both let go for far too little and went on to realise their potential elsewhere.

Good shout on brunt NB. 
 

Morrison was a mistake day he was sold and many fans at time were not happy with that sale even back then. Thought he was a very gifted midfielder and unlike some of our academy lads from same era not a big time charlie either.

Am not fussed on Cattermole tbh albeit replacing him with the fragile Digard was the issue.

Noticed Sam Stubbs got released by Fleetwood. I remember some on here that thought he should be playing for us..

I remember people (including myself) saying he should be kept around and given a chance as 4th/5th choice. But I don't recall anyone calling for anything other than that.

He has signed for Exeter as of a few days ago and they have a decent record of developing players, so it could be a good move for him.

In all honesty I think we have a good record of releasing academy players when their time is up. Other than a handful of players there's not many we end up regretting.

Ben Godfrey is another one

Can just imagine the look on Reiss Nelson’s face when Bausor walks in and says “yeah, you‘re gonna need to wear this outfit. For old times sake”

📝 Blackpool Football Club is pleased to announce the signing of midfielder Kevin Stewart on an 18-month contract

Oh dear! Obviously too greedy in the summer. Can’t say I’m disappointed about any of the players we missed out on.

Well said, if the stories linking us were true.

Henri Saivet could be the mystery winger/forward that Warnock has lined up for a loan move. It’s just a hunch as he’s the sort of player that Warnock likes. He’s out of contract at the end of the season so will surely be eager to impress and earn a good contract.

No chance you gotta be pretty bad to not be able to get starts at Newcastle

    • I agree with all that but I'm talking about next season rather than this one and the parameters that Warnock may have to work with and in the context of some of the names and amount of new players being suggested on here generally. Not wishing to dampen the enthusiasm in any way but I think there will need to be a harsh new financial reality in football generally and with Boro in particular.  I'm speculating that £12M is the absolute minimum wage bill but SG might be willing to find more funds. A full season without gate income at the Riverside, Bulkhaul hit by Brexit and the Hotel closed for the last 12 months will have had a significant hit. Out of the eleven mentioned, Bettenelli, McNair, Hall, Howson, Saville, Bolasie, Akpom, Fletcher, Kebano, Roberts and Assombalonga, six of them, (Bettenelli, Fletcher, Bolasie, Kebano, Roberts and Assombalonga) won't be there and if in the case of Fletcher for example is here it won't be on the same terms. I'm guessing that Hall is nearer the £10K a week purely from reports around the time of his transfer leaving just McNair, Howson and Saville on the bigger salaries. How much we are contributing to Bolasie, Kebano and Bettenelli's wages at the minute I have no idea but it is probably eye watering.
    • That sounds about right to me, with my fag packet maths.
    • I think you need to double that amount to get it closer to our wage bill mate.  I'd be surprised if we already didn't have more than 4 players on more than £12k per week, not including someone like Assombalonga.  If you include the current loan players, I reckon there would be at least 10 or close to it already on our books - Bettenelli, McNair, Hall, Howson, Saville, Fletcher, Bolasie, Akpom, Fletcher, Kebano, Roberts (for the first half of the season), Assombalonga.  I've left out Morsy but I bet he is somewhere near it as well.  Not sure about the lads who recently signed new deals, probably not at that level.  More than two of those will be above £20k as well.
