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


Recommended Posts

We need some wingers! Please I beg. Why does this club refuse to sign wingers window after window. 
 

Last season Warnock and all the fans agreed the squad was to thin as we had no depth once a few injuries hit us. We are literally going to have a smaller squad this year as things stand. We needed to build on last year, and get additions to what we had (numbers wise). I think this is the weakest squad we have had a week before the season starting for a long time.

“I don’t think Brazilians and Argentinians have a problem adapting to aggressive football. They’re born to do it. I haven’t got a problem with that. When we first spoke about it, I said, ‘Yeah, bring it on. It doesn’t bother me’. The only thing is, they’ll not get my jokes will they?”
 

Reading between the lines this sounds like we have a NW recruitment strategy and then we have the clubs strategy… things don’t change!

A loan makes much more sense then.

Said he didn't really want him to go but Wingy has pleaded with him to go. Thinks he should be scoring 10-15 goals in league 1 and expects him to come back and get himself a place in the team.

So Wing signed for an extra year but pleaded to leave.  Right ok.

To be fair sending Bausor half way around the world on what is probably a fruitless effort is actually an improvement on previous windows where we've sat around for months waiting for Premier League players to give us the pleasure of their presence on loan.

well if he doesn't think he'll get game time this year, but thinks he might next year once Warnock is gone it makes a bit more sense I think

No, I get that part of it.  It just doesn't seem like the best way to be doing things when people want to be somewhere else until the current manager leaves.

In this moment, it's probably to be viewed as a positive.

I think Wing just wants to be playing regular football. Don’t think it’s any more then that imo.

A fringe player who knows he cant defend like Warnock likes .. Not "people".

Could you just stop it for once, please?

Wing is not going to feature heavily in Warnock's plans this season, and he wants to play regularly. He's signed an extension to his contract with the aim of going out on loan and hopefully doing well enough to earn a first team spot next season. It's not that difficult to understand.

Yeah, and he clearly believes he has a better chance of doing that under a different manager here or he wouldn't have signed a new deal I assume?

    • 1. Are you starting to feel optimistic about the season yet? Still no. We've beat arguably the two worst teams in the league. NW has had a huge slice of luck having this run of games, 2. Should Crooks and Payero be our midfield partnership from now on? Yes. I know Neil (and by extension, the Gazette) have been making a big deal out of it, but it is nice to see Crooks take Martin under his wing and hopefully that helps Martin acclimate a bit faster. 3. How many points do you expect from the next 3?  Cardiff (A), Birmingham(H), Luton(A) Honestly, 6 minimum - with their form, we should be looking to beat both Cardiff & Birmingham. Luton are a really decent team this year though, so I'd happily take a draw down there. 4. Who is the better manager out of Warnock and McCarthy? That's like asking what's the better pain, being punched in the face or the nads. 5. Starting 11 and formation?                         Lumley Howson - McNair - Bamba - Peltier                  Payero - Crooks Tavernier               -             Jones/Hernandez                   Watmore                            Sporar A 4231 / 424 style formation with Watmore playing just off Sporar. Think with how well they've been doing, Payero & Crooks have to stay together, and IMO Howson was much better at RB the other night than I've seen him be in CM in a long time. 6. Who scored the 2nd goal against Barnsley, Sol or Crooksy? Crooks I think, although it was very close!
    • Cardiff City vs Middlesbrough FC                                                              Saturday 23rd October – 12:30 pm (Sky Sports)                                                                              Cardiff City Stadium Current standings: Boro continue to climb up the table and we find ourselves in a reasonable 10th place. The Bluebirds are in free fall and Mick Mccarthy might be the most hated man in Cardiff right now. If he doesn't get something from this game he's most likely getting sacked. Views from various Cardiff City fans on social media/forums: "Weird that the bookies have us as favourites when we have lost 7 games in succession conceding 17 goals and scoring 1 and have the worst home record in the division. Fear we will get a draw and be stuck with MM." "1-1 if we are lucky and Boro are poor." "Much better yesterday, we need a bit of luck and maybe a fluky goal and the confidence will slowly return, we are better than those results show, McCarthy has been picking the wrong team for most of those games!" "I’d take Warnock back tomorrow." "Boro will be too streetwise, one of our ex players bound to score. Think I'd actually applaud Sol even if its a scruffy tap in, fair play to him." "If Bamba gets McCarthy sacked he’ll become Cardiff’s biggest ever legend" "I’ve been to our last 7 games home and away and seen us score 1 and concede 17. Much better performance tonight but still dire." "Mick McCarthy's recent record at Cardiff City... - Seven defeats in a row - Nine defeats in 10 - One goal in 630 minutes" "Boro will be an interesting game. Neil Warnock getting all the applause while Mick gets all the abuse. The way it should be" "It’s been 172 days since Cardiff last scored a goal in the first half" Questions: 1. Are you starting to feel optimistic about the season yet? 2. Should Crooks and Payero be our midfield partnership from now on? 3. How many points do you expect from the next 3?  Cardiff (A), Birmingham(H), Luton(A) 4. Who is the better manager out of Warnock and McCarthy? 5. Starting 11 and formation? 6. Who scored the 2nd goal against Barnsley, Sol or Crooksy?                                                         (These wins are coming fast so these threads are getting briefer 😁)  
    • In Tavs defence, what attacking coaches has he had to work with over the last few years?    Warnock, Pulis and Woodgate were hardly known for their attacking prowess. I’d say Robbie Keane would have taught him a thing or two but at 22 you can always develop and I’m sure with more chances he would get more composure.    Id probably say that the whole team could do with a prolonged period of dominance in games to get some more composure and match practice at shooting. Last nights game showed how in the final third we are so nervous in my opinion. Not just Tav but everyone. 
    • I think it was Patrick Kielty who once said that when non-Irish do Irish impersonations, its always the Cork accent they imitate. 😁
    • Just realised I've exactly the same games won/drawn/lost and points as Boro
