Transfer Rumours, Summer 2014 "Didn't we do well!"

Recommended Posts

Omeruo and Ayala or Gibson for me. Think it's time for Woody to take a back seat, we need a consistent back four

Agree with KM on this. We need a consistent partnership and woody, as good as he is, is only ever going to be in and out of the side.

I agree too. I am a big fan of Woodgate, he's still a classy defender who wins nearly every header but his injuries :( I would rather have a settled back line.

Some bod called agent boro on twitter saying we will offer 2m plus Butterfield to Forest for Lansbury. Also that we have accepted 2m for Steele from Stoke.

 

Total crap I reckon, but I wouldn't be happy with that Lansbury deal.

Was on the Forest forum that Wigan had offered 2mil for Lansbury and Forest just laughed it off.

Woody will start every Saturday if fit. Might be on the bench for the midweek games, injuries permitting.

Thing is when he is in and out of the defence each week it can unsettle them so much. Its vital to have a settled defence. He is our best CB though

Yep. If I were Gibson and wasn't selected as first choice - given the partnership I'd forged with Omeruo last season - I'd be tempted to ask for a transfer...

 

Omeruo has even said he wants to move to develop his partnership with Gibson further...

I get settled lineup argument, but if one of our less talented defenders is in the lineup and makes a mistake that woody wouldn't have made had he been playing and it costs us 2 points... and we miss the play offs by one... for me the best players play if they're fit. Its karankas job to make the wholr thing seemless if the best players cant play and a replacement has to come in.

No way will woodgate be a 1st choice. It will be omeruo and Ayala if he comes back.

You play your best team, not your best players ;)

true but under mogga when we were struggling so much at the back I would say it was mainly down to not having a settled back 5. This doesnt mean we will have the same problems with a different squad and manager but its surely better to keep the same team as much as possible.

 

Ability wise surely woody is our best CB but with the fantastic partnership Omerou and gibson have made, its a very tough call for the manager

    • Hi all, just after a bit of help. I'm trying to reset my laptop. It is a fair few years old now and has been through the ringer, a fair few times it has hit the wall and I have managed to fix it by myself, but this one seems beyond my capabilities.  This issue has been going on a while but I'm only just getting round to it since I finally have some free time. When I turn my laptop on, It makes the noise as if it is loading, but I just get a black screen (it is still backlit but nothing ever appears). I have tried the Novo one button reset, which actually brought up a screen for the first time in lord knows how long.  However, no matter what option I choose, it then goes back to a black screen.    Anybody with any ideas at all on how to fix it or what's wrong? I was using it as a media server for Plex before it left so there were a lot of files on there that may have corrupted if that helps diagnose it at all?   Thanks in advance
    • Gazette seem to be suggesting club and JW want him to stay given his influence around the place. I should have added the above post was not my own prediction of who will stay or go but more what Gazette are seemingly suggesting. 
    • The police struggle with their duties during a short spike in crime on a regular day. That, along with the government's long desire to portray the changing face of crime and how we increasingly need to change to fight more digital crime, is going to be a factor in how many coppers we have on the streets to enforce these things. The government has now been forced to accept that enforcement may be needed to keep people indoors, which goes drastically against their ideal distribution of officers. Going significantly against their ideal setup is becoming quite a theme during this pandemic. As I said earlier, this doesn't mean higher levels of lockdown are on the way, what it may mean is that higher levels of enforcement will be dispatched in order to enforce the current lockdown procedures.
    • Why would we want Friend to stay, He was a brilliant player, now he cannot play three games on the spin. 
    • Just catching up on some Gazette articles and it seems picture with the out of contract players is become a bit clearer if Gazette are to be believed Set to stay: Howson & Friend Club want to stay: Ayala Set to leave: Shotton Clayton Johnson & Rudy I think Ayala staying really is 50/50 at moment.
