The January Transfer Window thread 2022 - That's all folks!


Recommended Posts

The transfer thread has resulted in some of the most illogical and creative posts I have read in a long time. I wonder if some are aware of the allowed squad size or the fair play rule while others are willing to dump some of our younger developing players for unproven equally developing players with little or no loyalty. Frankly there is no logic in most of the posts with players being suggested for positions we don’t really need. We need a reality check so thank the lord Chris is in charge. I wonder what his favourite crisps are?

Lumley?

The one and only time I'll be itk- Lad fell out with Gardner and bowyer after they got him to sign a new deal with the promise of first team opportunity and they never followed through.  Giv

Thing that’s *** me off with this Tav talk is the disrespect from our fans on social media and forums, more so social media but I have seen comments today like ‘ I will drive him there’ in regards to

Thats why I tend to have little interest in transfer threads and prefer to just wait and see who actually turns up. 

Though it is fun to dip in now and again just to see how wild the speculation is getting and read some of the arguments lively debates. 😉

Well I think the Man Utd - Villa game proved any VAR decisions will favour the home team. 🙄

Its bloody stupid to have VAR at all in cup games, given its only used at PL grounds. Either have it for every fixture regardless, or not at all (I'd prefer the latter).

I’m not a fan either but VAR isn’t the problem though, it’s who they have using it an interpreting it that’s the problem. If the folk running it have been given the same contractual obligations then it’s just another tool like the private refereeing company who’s quality and impartiality is much less than it was back in the days when referees were folk like Mr Peck from Kendal.

Technically you're right. Its not the system, its the idiots tasked with using it.

If they'd just stuck to what was supposed to be the original brief - correcting glaringly wrong decisions, it would probably be okay.

Given the way things have gone, I believe they should follow what cricket and tennis have done. Give both teams 3 reviews and let them decide when to use them. If the appeal is upheld & decision is overturned, they keep the review. If not, they lose a review.

Ooh you've opened a can of worms there.

The oneBoro crisp police will tell you a snack only qualifies as "crisps" if its made of potato in some form.

I'm pretty sure Frazzles are made of wheat or corn. 😉

the TMO and Ref in Rugby have a conversation using the big screen to discuss what they believe is happening and then the ref makes the decision, all the fans can see what's going on and therefore have faith that the correct decision is made or at least understand why the decision was made.

    • I honestly believe a full season under Wilder in the LCM role would show everyone just how good he is. I think if you took him out of our midfield you'd see how bad and unbalanced it is. McGree and Crooks won't work because neither of them cover enough ground or do the defensive side of the game.  Howson I love but let's be honest he's not a traditional out and out CDM. He losses the ball too often in bad positions and his positioning for CDM can be quite poor. He brings commitment, energy and workrate though.  For me in midfield we need a LWB, CDM and an RCM. I would drop Crooks to the bench or move him on. I know that he's scored ten goals this season but I believe we can sign players that more suit Wilders system with energy, pressing and intensity. I would keep him for the bench but personally would look to replace him in the starting team. Tavernier was in the Top 10 for both Key Passes and Tackles Won. He was ranked 3rd for passes in the final third. He's expected goals and assists combined for this season was 15. I could see him getting 15-20 goal contributions in a full season under Wilder. He had 10 this season and has shown real signs of improvement. He does a lot more than what people realise for the team.  Tavernier was given corners because he was the only real left-footed option in the team. I do agree though that most of his deliveries were relatively poor considering he's our designated corner kick tacker they didn't look practiced.
    • Wouldn't call it interesting personally (i.e. not sure what there is to draw from it), think it just reinforces the club are happy they moved on from him. I can't remember the last time they did a season long goals montage so I could be wrong but it feels like this alone is a little out of the ordinary and perhaps only put together because Wilder is at the helm. I think the club is just continuing to want to push Wilder and positivity around him, that's how they approached the Season Card campaign too. It's not necessarily wanting to reflect on the season just gone as a whole but more to give an idea of what's to come.
    • I don't think corner taking ability is really something that pushes someone over that £10m threshold. He can be both one of our better corner takers, and still not be a particularly good corner taker, but that really feels like grasping at straws for something to still criticise him with. 
    • For what it’s worth with Tav, I genuinely think he would flourish as a left wing back, and simplified his game.  Tav travels well with the ball, is energetic and I can’t fault his work ethic at all. He always puts a shift in. But I just think he could use it so much better than he is currently doing from watching him this season. I still think he has some work to do in the final third, which ironically was where we struggled most to break teams down. I just don’t think he’s there yet and I don’t think he does a job which an additional player in midfielder couldn’t do (he’s replaceable).   For a player who takes corners, you’d expect better delivery on a more consistent basis for him to be worth 10m + which some are quoting on various platforms.    I realise that Tav is very polarised on the opinion poll. Like I say, I don’t hate him and think he’s ‘bad’, he’s just not consistent enough yet to be deemed as integral to how we play in midfield in my view  
    • Maybe if he was Slovenian and not from our academy he'd be the best thing since sliced bread 🤷
