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

I see, so even though you actually used the word big in your description of him when calling him a big man up top, his height is merely incidental to this?  What would you say, is the single most important attribute required to be a BIG man up top?  If it isn't size then why is it called a BIG man up top?  Lots of players can hold the ball up and bring others into play.  Not all of those players would play in that role however because they lack the size required to do it effectively.  Absolutely bloody barmy you are 👍

Strength, mostly. I'd call Akinfenwa a big guy up top too but he's only just 6 foot IIRC. 

You're welcome to continue arguing if you want, but you're wrong 🙂

6ft1 says the internet.  Which is pretty tall.

I see, so if you're tall but not really strong, like Crouch was or someone like Jon Stead for example, then you aren't a big man up top?  What would you call them?  Thin men up top?  How about Spindly men up top? 

Yeah Akinfenwa is a great example of someone who isn't tall.  Well done, you've checkmated me there with that one 🤦‍♂️

As strength is the most important factor in your opinion, then Akinfenwa would be the best Big man up top in the world right?  Cos he is widely regarded as the strongest player in football or certainly one of them, and that is the most important attribute?

It's funny, you mentioned holding the ball up and bringing others into play earlier, and someone like Aguero is excellent at that, but he's neither strong nor tall, and I suspect you wouldn't call him a big man up top, despite the fact that his abilities lend themselves to the things you believe are most important for that role.  I wonder why you wouldn't call him that though? 🤷‍♂️

Yeah brilliant mate 👍

There's just no point having a discussion with you because you're not going to change your mind and I'll just go round in circles so what's the point really! Better things to do with my evening!

I replied to Wilson earlier, and you took issue with what I'd said, effectively telling me I was completely wrong.  I don't remember you discussing anything.  So stop being argumentative, then crying about it when you don't really have a point to make at all, and end up looking a bit silly as a result.  Enjoy your action packed evening.

You could have though as that is almost certainly the reason he was played as a forward for Rotherham.

While I often disagree with things you say, at least usually I can see where you're coming from. This one though; this one is just flat out bad.

This is Brunners having a discussion apparently.  No explanation of why what I said was wrong, just that it was flat out bad.  If only everyone could discuss things like this eh?

They aren’t half taking their time to announce Crooks. A few others were supposedly close earlier this week as well but still nothing as of yet.

    • The administrators must be worried about HMRC. They supposedly owe them £26m.
    • I presume the continued legal action is to ensure that 9-12 point deduction that they are due for breaching P&S is actually carried out. It's all gone quiet since they went in to administration.
    • Well they're currently on -2 points. Another 9 point deduction would make that -11, which is currently 18 points from safety. That would be a serious amount of ground to make up and would require 3 teams above them to have pretty horrendous seasons, in order to overhaul them. I'd rather see Mel Morris get taken for every penny he's got, or otherwise punished to the full extent of the law. Instead he's wringing his hands and saying he's "sorry" while the club that was under his stewardship could end up going to the wall, if the administrators can't find a suitable buyer.  
    • Does Gibson seriously holding a grudge for them outbidding us on Waghorn 😂
    • They haven't actually been punished for cheating yet, which is the whole point of principle for Gibson. They've had a self-inflicted 12 point deduction for administration. They're currently only 9 points from safety, that is far from insurmountable with most of the season left, and the pressure needs to be kept up to ensure they get the punishment they're due.
