The January Transfer Window 2021

Recommended Posts

As the next window is less than six weeks away, I think it is time to create a new thread for rumours, wishes and scurrilous falsehoods about players that may arrive, leave or be seen from the bushes around Rockcliffe car park. My number one hope is we can find someone with a similar style to the hero of 1995, though I am sure that we will never get the chance to receive two Fuchs (or whatever the plural might be). A strong direct forward is something we have need of and could be the difference between us challenging for playoffs and treading water. Haaland probably just beyond our finances, but must be some other candidates to fit the bill somewhere in Europe

Derby County being linked with Dane playing for Bodo, Kasper Junker. Championship material?  

I hope they do. He is so poor. I can't fathom how he has scored so many goals in Norway. Only explanation is that it's a really poor league and any player would score goals in that Bodø team this season. Basically he is runner and a hard worker.

Heh. You could make a whole musical montage out of this.

NW will be encouraging players to:

 

Meanwhile Steve Gibson will be telling him: 

 

Players will take one look at the contracts on offer, shake their heads and say:

 

The Gazette will no doubt be accused of printing a load of:

...or even some outright whoppers...

If Britt and Fletcher don't sign new contracts soon I would guess Warnock will move heaven and earth to get a new striker. I know they're not great but they're decent enough and to lose for nothing would be terrible.

Would make more sense to wait until the summer I think?

    • I don't think Jones has the ability at this level so I wouldn't want to bring him back. Then the off field issues that led to him leaving Boro in the first place don't seem to have improved any at Rangers. We have had some of the best from the Old Firm that seriously struggled down here before in the Championship. That he can't even force his way into Gerrard's thinking tells me where his future level is.
    • But Britt and Fletcher were never actually worth what we paid. Quoting their purchase price to explain a decrease in value of squad makes no sense. By the same measure Fry and Paddy have increased in value more than those 2 have dropped. As have Tav, Bola and Dijksteel.
    • On the basis that losing Britt and Fletcher due to them being out of contract potentially represents £21.5 million gone and the unlikelihood that the club can spend even a quarter of that on their replacements would indicate that the squad is diminishing in value. It's a trajectory that has been evident since we started shipping out the hastily assembled Premiership squad followed by Monks bonanza then Pulis "balancing the books". Throw in the Summer of Woodgate and the "Golden Thread" where a yarn was spun to the gullible and there is a general trend which if plotted on a graph only goes in one direction.
    • @Kelloe. I respect you greatly as a poster and hope you dont take this advice from me the wrong way? I also dont agree with @sanddancer post but please dont call him clown. It will just become unsavoury and derail the thread. @sanddancer is perfectly entitled to his views so if you going to disagree please do it respectfully.
