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


Recommended Posts

Burnley, Sheffielu Utd, WBA and Fulham all badly need goals. Could also add Newcastle and Wolves to that list. They all have money and Britt isn't the worst investment.

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 😳

Fletcher is close to signing a new contract.

In the premier league? You must be joking

Hopefully it’s one of those foreign clubs who throw money around for fun. I’ve always made my opinion of Britt clear, he was never going to live up to a £15m price tag. I honestly think we’re lucky to get a fee so any decent sum is a bonus.

I bet we'll have told his agent, that he needs to find a club that is willing to pay, or we will be triggering the extra year (if that exists) to protect our investment. That effectively means that we have a decent championship striker with 18 months on his contract who consitently gets into double figures. I reckon that could get us at least 4 million.

I think Sheffield United is a strong possibility along with some random team from the Middle East. 

Could also see Fulham going for him. Don't think anyone else in the Premiership would go for him mind.

Why?  A lot of championship forwards get moves to the Prem when they consitently get into double figures every season. Look at the managers Britt has had here: Monk (clueless), Pulis (attack gives him seizures), Woodgate (abject) and now Warnock who likes a different kind of striker. It's not like Britt has had managers that play to his strength.

That's a definite possibility. The team needs to use as much leverage as it has against all options.

 Britt's a permanent and getting a fee. 

 

Don't know where to and for how much yet though 

Any idea on whether it will be done quickly or will be one for later in the window?

That is probably the best outcome for us. 

Depending on how close Fletcher is I'm not even sure we need another forward atm? Seems Warnock has gone well away from playing 2 up top.

I think we do. Fletcher could have a recurrence of his injury, not improbable that Watmore could also get injured and Roberts looks to be on his way or not in the managers thoughts. Browne is back but is a bit of an unknown entity at the moment. We need goals.

what are his strengths? genuinely asking

In my eyes he can't really hold the ball up, isn't great in the air, not particularly fast, not very skilful/technical

Anything but a targetman. Christ, Pulis even played him on the wing. Is arguably better when he has a partner up front or a supporting number 10. He is a good finisher in and around the box, so that's where he needs to be and not having to drop 30 yards to flick on high balls lumped up the pitch.

We played 2 up top at sheff wed. We definitely need a replacement

    • That one reminds me of Paul Robinson scoring with a free kick from just outside his own box. Think he beat The Cycling GK Ben Foster with that one.
    • @DurhamRedi get that concern but at moment if you look at the possible first 11. We got Dijksteel, Fry, Bola and Tav all under 25. Add to that Lumley and Paddy who are both 26. That is 6 out my first 11 that are 26 or under.  In terms of 30 or above we only really have Howson and Morsy.  And Hall but I dont think Hall starts if Fry and Paddy are both fit. A bit more experience probably wont do us any harm in terms of grinding out results. Fully respect some posters might not see it that way mind  
    • It's more because this is the route I want the club to go down sign players with potential not 30 year olds who are passed their peak. That is the case with Smith and hoillet 
    • Just seen Hull close to signing Dion Charles from Accrington, he's one of the standout L1 strikers in my opinion would've liked us to have a look 
    • If distance is all that matters, then hard to beat this one 🙂
