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


Recommended Posts

If Muniz does fall through we really do need to get some players in sharpish

We've lost 30 goals from the players who've left, including 6 of our 8 top scorers (assuming Akpom leaves) and so far have brought in 15 goals with Ikpeazu, Crooks and Ameobi 

This for a side that's already notoriously low scoring and lacking in creativity

What worries me is the absence of links to wingers and attacking midfielders other than Lazaro and a few washed up has beens 

11 days till Fulham...

I wouldn't assume Akpom will leave quite yet, he's only going if we have a replacement

Frankly the best you can say about Akpom is he is just another body we have currently. If we get firm interest I would get rid, he is hardly irreplaceable.

He certainly isn't but numbers wise, he still needs replacing and as shown in the previous post it's still 5 goals from somewhere

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.

I believe Stewy Downing went out on loan to Sunderland the same way and did well and was brought back

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.

I don't think it is a fruitless effort...a lot of work must go into a foreign player signing

I think you are correct - there is a ridiculous amount of work that goes into signing overseas players - particularly from South America.  Think its all to do with how they are owned etc.  I think its fair to say Payero deal is all but done but has still taken a couple of weeks to try and negotiate final details

Isn't Bausor in Brazil? How well do parmos travel? 

I hope he hasn't taken him a Jeff The Chef one.

C'mon the last thing an athlete needs is a kin Parmo no matter who makes it...look what they did to Alves when he found em

Paterson is an option attacking wise for us too, I know he hasn't massively impressed but he has had an injury and generally has grabbed goals and assists from midfield. 

Last season he only got 3 goals 2 assists in 20 games but previously

19/20 7 goals, 4 assists

18/19 5 goals, 4 assists

17/18 5 goals, 8 assists

On a free, I'd take him

Well the geotag says Rio de Janeiro… Bausor is in South America… it can only mean it’s a done deal 🤷‍♂️ 

I don't think Bausor is actually in South America. The Muniz talks have been taking place in Lisbon. Muniz isn't actually there, his representatives are.

I count 27 goals and 17 assists (including Akpom)

 

so if we include Payero as part of the new signings (excluding Pelts)

last season the 4 players in (compared to 6 out) contributed 18 goals and 18 assists, so as long as the 2 additional forwards (ST and Winger) contributed more than 9 goals in their respective teams, we're better placed - and are spending considerably less

    • Warnock shouldn't abuse referees. But I don't think boro fans should be calling our manager expletives online. It makes us all look silly. I imagine if we beat Sheffield United 3-0 then nobody will be calling him a p**** then. He won't be here much longer.
    • Our performances have been so bad this season that I now think Warnock leaving is the best thing all round. Our midfield hasn't been fit for purpose for most of this season as Warnock doesn't know how to get the best out of the players at his disposal. If the going gets tough then I doubt Warnock will dig his heels in to stick around for a mid-table at best kind of season, so I'm sure there's a good chance that he'll leave if there isn't an upturn in results soon. There's two more games against Sheffield United (home) and Hull City (away) before the next international break - which would be a good time to make a managerial change - so our results before then could decide whether Warnock leaves or not. Whilst Crooks has probably been our best performing central midfielder this season, I think him him being part of any three man midfield, especially with Warnock's direct tactics, massively reduces our fluidity in possession and just leads to our midfield three not functioning to anywhere near an acceptable standard. Last season we were far more fluid in possession without a unique "Warnock style" midfielder like Crooks. Something has dramatically changed in midfield from last season as we've got so much worse. I don't think the goals he has provided has been worth the negatives. Any three from Howson, Morsy, Saville and Tavernier last season performed to a far higher and consistent standard than any three this season so far. I can see the positives that Crooks adds to the team in a midfield role such as him pushing forward from midfield to be a targetman for flick-ons from Lumley's long kicks, and a very good aerial presence in both boxes in open play and set-pieces. However, aside from them, I think he really limits us as a team as the ball doesn't flow well with him in there. With three central midfielders we should be far more patient on the ball and allow our shape to open up far more with fullbacks overlapping, wide midfielder having a more infield position and midfielders playing through the thirds with quality. Instead everything in midfield is disjointed, messy and scrappy for us - with minimal quality as a unit. We've played our best football this season in the home game against Blackburn with Howson, Morsy and Tavernier in a midfield three - with Crooks playing as a targetman in strike. Kieran Scott must be tearing his hair out after watching how smoothly Norwich's midfield in their two promotion seasons move the ball around and progress it into the forward areas. Siliki and Payero both still adapting to the Championship won't help matters either. Whatever the cause is, the problem of the midfield is abundantly clear so it needs to be resolved as soon as possible.
    • No, I'm saying that there's a great deal of hypocrisy to try and stand up for the right of a person not to receive abuse when the person you're talking about is Neil Warnock. The man hands out dog's abuse every game. It's not whether he can take it or whether he deserves it, it's that if he can't then be shouldn't be throwing stones himself.
    • Are you saying warnock deserves to be called obscenities from fans of MFC? Because I don't think he does. 
    • Is this what you say to Warnock about the referee every week? Bloody hell.
