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

Recommended Posts

Don't know why but letting Steele go and effectively replacing him with yet another young chelsea loanee who will probably have no future with the club really annoys me

 

Yes but we can't have it all ways - We can't say well done on all the incomings and then complain that we are letting someone go who AK clearly doesn't want.

 

I am a fan of Steele's but can't see the point of keeping him (and his wages) if he isn't going to play. Once he goes then you aint going to get a top flight keeper in as a new number 3 - So a promising lad from Chelsea (maybe even as a favour to them) them makes sense

Maybe having Blackman is a favour to Chelsea? Get him involved in the competitive set up, even if he probably won't start. Sort of pay back for all the beautiful deals they've offered in our favour.

 

Probably complete nonsense. In fact, almost certainly a rubbish theory. But I'll throw it out there, as it does seem like an odd deal from our point of view.

 

It does sound logical but like u say, Probably complete nonsense. :P

 

:D

I find it very strange that we would bring in this kid unless we plan to involve him. Now, maybe I am reading too much into it, but does this hint at Karanka not being entirely convinced by Mejias and he's bringing in someone else in just in case?

AV says they were told by Gibbo to keep quiet on Blackman . Probably just to try to not and fuel the Steele speculation. Which did turn out to be true .

I would have liked another CM, but Baker will be coming later in the month to solve that. Hines leaving would have given us the option of bringing in a new CB but Hines is a good player and improves everytime he gets a run of games.

 

UTB!!

Yeh but then he will get injured, his bones are made of glass, steele going on loan and this kid coming in seems waste of time, anyone know what's happened with ake?

Reports that Leeds only sold Matt Smith to Fulham after they agreed to sign Luciano Becchio who snubs them last min to join Rotherham. Wow.

you never know maybe he will turn into the central defender version of Bale? he was permanently injured and then became a world beater :D

loan kid saves big wages for a 3rd choice keeper compared Steele

    • As long as we don't lose, I don't really mind 👍
    • Actually, I started talking about this season's stats.  You said our strikers are rubbish so I looked at the stats over the period that they've been here to see what they also looked like.  Unless the extent of your argument is that they have suddenly turned to rubbish now of course, then that is the right way to look at it, whether you like it or not.  Nothing arrogant about that, it's just common sense.  I added the other players to show that they aren't scoring goals, and as a team scores goals, not simply the strikers, it's quite clearly relevant to how many goals we have scored this season, and over the seasons when our rubbish strikers have been here.  We have midfielders who scored goals elsewhere unable to score goals at the same frequency here.   That has nothing to do with our strikers but clearly impacts how many goals we score.
    • I like Bamford.  I thought he was our best striker and said so on numerous occasions.  I think he's a better striker than Assombalonga, Fletcher and Akpom (from what little I've seen of him).  In the last two seasons Bamford scored 25 goals.  Assombalonga has also scored 25 goals in that time.  I still think Bamford is the better player but in the last two seasons they scored exactly the same amount of goals.  Bowen is a completely different player to any of our strikers but also a better player I think it's safe to say.
    • Great news but I can't see Middlesbrough being in a low enough Tier unfortunately any time soon.
    • That wasn't my main argument.
