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


Recommended Posts

We all get Robin Johnson doesn't like Bolasie, there's nothing new to discuss around that.

Hopefully Bolasie proves him wrong, and I'm sure he'd admit it, but I'm not overly hopeful myself.

Fletcher is close to signing a new contract.

Can’t believe that people on here are condemning a possible signing because of rumours that he dealt drugs.    One thing or squad is crying out for is someone that can distribute well 😳

If Bolasie had been playing for Everton’s u23’s he could come straight in. No one is denying he’s a decent signing, but if he’s not fit to start and make an instant i pace then I’d rather we looked elsewhere. It does reek of desperation. Hope he proves me wrong!

@Robin Johnson. Can I make a suggestion. Your views on Bolasie are very well known.

I and all our fans have been in a similar situation to you where we either sign someone we do not want or sell someone we feel is worth keeping.

However, if he signs, can I advise you just see how it goes and we can discuss the pros and cons of his impact at end of season? At the moment you are simply repeating the reasons you are not a fan of the bloke and those reasons are fully known to us all. I say this more for your sake than other posters.

I am simply responding to other posters- like the ones claiming he is a good player at this level. This is an illusion and, as said, is based on hope and desperation.

I believe I put up a water tight defence against this signing. Others disagree- fair enough. However, I will say this, my opinion is based on fact and, when applying logic it is an irresistible combination that has shown is difficult - if not impossible- to put up a credible counter argument.

How do you explain the relative succes he enjoyed last season at one of Portugals biggest clubs and also playing Europa League. Surely you'd jump at the chance of signing a first team winger from Sporting, Benfica or Porto right now? I will absolutely give you that he wasn't a succes at Villa two years ago, but last season he was by no means off the pace.

I don't think we are in the position of signing players that a match fit. Every player we will be looking at will be someone who isn't wanted at their current club, or have played very few minutes this season. Unless of course you want us to buy someone we can afford most likely league 1 or 2. We're not in a position to bring in a match fit player from the Prem or Championship. Surely it's a huge gamble to take someone who hasn't played this season but so is continuing with Coulson, Spence and to a degree Roberts on the wings.

Such a success ? That being the case you have to wonder why they didn’t sign him.

Probably because a portuguese team can't afford a 70k/week player in these times. Maybe he didn't want to uproot his family to another country. Who knows. The facts are clear though about his involvement in the first team.

We are all willing  to give a player a chance before writing him off. Its something i wont do now after seeing what warnock has done to several players who have all be wrote off. Djicksteel, bola, fry, johnson, saville. Watmore was released by league one sunderland but came here. Started great and soon had interest from PL teams

I like writing them off before they've played therefore I'm right if they are crap, but if they are good I'm happy to be the idiot at the expense of us heading to the Prem 🙏
