Dan's Summer Transfer Thread. Aka: " Post Mortem Time""


Recommended Posts

Feel a bit out of the loop in the transfer window.  Just seen Marcus Maddison (who many wanted us to take a chance on) has signed for Spalding United 😵

I think Lumley coming in as No.1 is a bit underwhelming given he was QPR no.2 BUT i think lad could prove to a good no.1.
 

GKs are a bit odd in that they can come from no where and perform well.

I look at the lad at Brighton Sanchez who was in lower leagues and is now they no.1 and been called up to Spain national squad. 
 

The lad Dieng at QPR. Now being linked with 8 figure moves to PL. Last season he was on loan at Dundee and considered QPRs 3rd choice keeper

I was gonna say Dieng is too good for the Championship so I wouldn't hold falling behind him in the pecking order against him.

good for him, he needs something to help him fall back in love with the game.

My mate who is a QPR fan, says Lumley is still young for a keeper and thinks he will do well for us. 

Not the best at crosses and set pieces into the box but is good at shot stopping and 1v1's. 

I wish him luck and hope he will be good for us!

Neither was Given or Schwarzer from memory although i still class them as brilliant keepers for us.

I really hope Lumley has been signed as backup, no way do we go up if he's #1 choice. Typical Boro that we sign a player who had one great game against us.

He had a great game, Warnock saw it, Warnock thinks he's great. Who needs Opta stats or a scouting network?

I'm leaning this way. I agree with what CT said, by and large, he made saves you'd expect a professional keeper to make during that game against QPR. Keeper is the position you really shouldn't be taking risks with. That said, we have means to work within and beggars can't be choosers.

Some rare positivity from me, but I don't have a problem with the Lumley signing at all. He's young for a keeper, on a free, has a point to prove and by all accounts has a good attitude.

We know we don't have the cash to go out and buy ready-made promotion winners. What we need to do is get behind the lads that come in and hope they can form a good team bond and build their confidence. If we have a successful season, it will be because of good team spirit and motivation, not from individual brilliance.

Let's give the new lads a chance to prove themselves.

This was my first thought too. "Ey, only reason we lost today was that young keeper, you get me? Sign him, we walk this league."

I wouldn't worry though, proper football men don't need poncy numbers to know what's what 💪🍺

I just rewatched the saves he made against us and I think it's a little harsh to call them "saves a keeper should make" they were both excellent reaction saves from close range that are harder than they look.

if the internet was about when steve pears signed all the ayresome angels would saying he cant kick and doesnt command his area, hes to small blah blah.

i'm buzzing we have signed a keeper who can actually save something.

bettinelli went down in stages, if a shot never accidently hit him, it was a goal. we lost games 3-0 and every shot a keeper like randolf would have saved comfortably(rotherham, preston?). he sucked the life out of the team. because they knew if the opposition had a shot it was in. sign another cb who can defend unlike paddy and we'll be back to a defense that never concedes. just need to add goals. heaven help us with that.

Could it be possible....

That this year we have learnt from past mistakes.  Maybe we are getting in a few bodies early to ensure we actually have a squad.  Maybe the first few coming in our not our main targets but squad players who could do a job.  We can't really get to the stage this year where we try for all our top targets - wait around and get turned down leaving us with the thinnest of squads and having to pay over the odds at the end of the window for people we didn't particularly want?

We will no doubt have a budget of £????. Warnock sees us needing 8-9 players.  Maybe he's trying to get 4-5 in cheaply to leave the majority of his budget for later in the window.  Or maybe he's been told you have got 2 million for player transfers + their wages and anything above that has to come after we sell?

I wish you'd said that before I got his name printed on the back of my shirt 😭

    • Even if Bola and McNair fit tomorrow, I wouldn't change a winning team which has the potential to have some confidence and take the risk of aggravating their injuries further. Start them on the bench and if the game isn't going our way then change it. Strangely confident going into tomorrow even before the forest result and im going with a 2-0 win . I just think there's so much to lose with a negative result and performance tomorrow.  
    • Thanks for this I do have an interest in Railways and I guess I was a bit of an anorak in my youth🤪
    • as far as I know, it is still "under consideration"..  which usually means nobody wants to invest the money required ..  would certainly help even if only open on match days, but I fear it will go the way of the wind turbine and unless people start to kick up a fuss, the Transporter ..
