When do we start the Gaston hashtag then?

I don't think buying Championship players is a good idea if we want to stay up. Having said that, I'd take any of these; Lewis Dunk, Anthony Knockaert, Alan Judge and Moussa Dembele.

 

I think Steve, AK and the scouting network will provide us with a few surprises, most of which I won't have heard of. When I looked around at who I'd like us to bring in I discovered I was probably guilty of playing fantasy football and blowing my budget on a few players, for instances

 

Kieran Trippier of Spurs at right-back

Jose Giminez of Atletico Madrid at centre-back

Ruben Neves of Porto at centre-midfield

For the right-wing slot I thought of Andros Townsend, Theo Walcott or Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain

No 10 should be Gaston on a permanent, and maybe someone like Pritchard on loan as competition

Mauro Icardi of Inter as The Striker, and I'd definitely bring in Dembele of Fulham and let Nugent go - it didn't do Leicester any harm.

 

So there you have it, I've proved I can't manage teams on a budget, have no concept of whether players from top clubs are likely to join newly promoted teams and am completely ignorant of lesser known players outside the BBC gossip.

 

So I think I'll leave it to AK and his team and look forward to the summer.

 

Neves, Giminez, Icardi, Trippier? Never mind you not managing a budget, not managing expectations more like :D

I'm a little out of touch with regards to up and coming foreign stars. Haven't played FM or watched much of other leagues for a few years. But I would love us to inject some lightning pace into our side. Seems a age since we've had a proper flyer in our team, even to come off the bench. I know we had wildschut but he was barely a footballer.

Don't think Townsend would be a good fit for us but I would definitely take Janmat (excuse the spelling) as RB as I think he would be a decent signing for us

For me, these are the players I would be happy signing from the potentially relegated sides. Trying to keep it realistic so I've left some players out like Grealish who will be loyal to Villa.

 

Starting off with Villa, Scott Sinclair and Veretout could potentially be cost effective recruits. Neither cost Villa too much so they might be happy to flip them for small amounts. Sinclair is a very inconsistent player, but obviously can be unbelieveable on his day. Veretout was being chased by Leicester when Villa signed him and I understandably trust their recruitment process. Difficult to find a perfect recruit from Villa for obvious reasons. I wouldn't be too surprised if Sinclair stayed at Villa, he was happy signing for them and it would give him a chance to play well most weeks again. Carles Gil could be an option for backup/alternative to Gaston, but similarly to Sinclair he only has his day every so often.

 

Norwich's squad is very much filled with Championship players. If we could forgive the playoff heartbreak then maybe Redmond could be exciting, he might be a bit costly though.

 

Newcastle, in contrast to Norwich, seem to have a lot of very talented players that unfortunately for them are mercenaries. Maybe we'd let Colback complete a tour of the NE clubs as he's a reasonably solid player.

 

I would probably only take Defoe from Sunderland, but I don't think they will go down anyway.

 

It's quite slim pickings to be honest, I think each club has players way above our level but none of them are motivated enough to fight for their current team so why should we bother signing them? I would be more tempted to try some of Villa's diamonds in the rough than players from our North East neighbours.

Said it before and I'll carry on saying it... If the price was right I'd have Wahbi Khazri from Sunderland. Not sure what they paid and he only joined them in January but I think he'd excel in our team at #10.

 

 

Plus, his name is such fun to say

I'd love him, think he's a very talented player. Unfortunately Sunderland are almost definitely staying up now.

Which players will cut it in the PL.

 

Ayala

Gibson

Clayton

Adomah and possibly Friend.

 

Rhodes is never a premiership striker (streak striker or not)

 

But in an ideal world I would like to see them all given the chance.

From Newcastle I have been impressed by Wijnaldum he could be a good attacking option and could add some goals from midfield.

If we were to get anyone from Sunderland it would have to be Defoe. 15 goals for a team fighting relegation, but as you say think they're almost safe now.

 

I honestly can't wait for the transfer window to open, the calibre of players we could possibly attract with our new scouting network and our links with the likes of Atletico Madrid, Roma, and Real Madrid is making me wet myself.

Tim Krul would be my no 1 target from the relegation threatened teams.

 

Keko has a €10 m euro release fee in his contract and would be a great signing for us. Think he's on the move to Seville though.

 

Nacho Camacho would be perfect for our midfield 2.

I mentioned Tim Krul whilst we were discussing it in the Nav after the game yesterday but was laughed off. Think he would be available at a snip given the emergence of Darlow and them needing to cut wages. Very good keeper

Im a fan of Krul although his form had dropped prior to his injury. He would be worth a risk if he did become available though.

Newcastle - Krul/Janmaat/Wijnaldum/Perez

 

Norwich - Jerome/Redmond (is it them that have Leroy Fer on loan as well?)

 

Villa - Lol.

Defoe turns 34 at the start of October, he's a geriatric in footballing years

    • Whatever. I'm sick to death of the SG defender's rhetoric - "We wouldn't have a club if it wasn't for him." It's old and gets trotted out all the time. The fact is, football has moved on a lot since then and we could be a much bigger and successful club if he wasn't in charge.  
    • I actually thought Boro played a fair bit of decent football, stroking it around on the deck for periods. True, the final ball was almost always a high cross, which the Cardiff defence mostly dealt with very comfortably, but its worth noting our equaliser also came from another lofted ball into the box. But after that we did resort to some truly horrendous hoofball. How the hell we ever expected to make anything happen with the ball spending most of the time in the air, I'll never know.  
    • DZ I do not know if you are having issues at home, work or otherwise but of late you have been far more aggressive than usual and I simply can not allow you to respond in such a way towards another member of the forum purely for his opinion. There are many other ways you can reply and respond to matters you do not agree with but this time you are pushing the boundaries of decency. The swear filter does work but you intended to state what you have just done so. Give it some thought about how you have been on the forum and try and calm down. Please take this as a public warning that this type of interaction will not be tolerated towards good people. Your'e a good lad and a valued member of the forum don't bring issues you may be suffering onto the forum for lashing out purposes. Hopefully you may send Blanco a pm offering an apology. Believe me this is not up for debate and I will not get into a conversation about it. Thanks
    • How important do you think a captain is to the side both on and off the pitch? Very important on the pitch, the captain should be the managers right hand man when they are not carrying out his instructions to hold players to account. He should also be the player who puts an arm around young players when they make a mistake and let them know its okay just learn from it but try make amends. Communication and organising on the pitch is also a big part of the role. Off the pitch, not so sure.  Do you think a different decision at the start of the season would leave us in a better position now? Yes do you see Britt doing any of the above particularly in difficult moments to try drag us through? then let me ask you, how many times did lead bitter do all of the above?   Would you change captains in the middle of the season right now or do you think that could lead to dressing room division? Yes change it, might help our fortunes and might actually stop some of the silly mistakes if someone holding people accountable.  Who would you like to see take over if you would? Morsy without a doubt, I see a lot of Leadbitter in him taking one for the team when opposition are looking dangerous and if you watch him he communicates with his team mates constantly. He was also captain at Wigan for 3 years before coming here and Wigan fans had nothing but praise for him which tells you a lot. 
    • Problem is one we had one foreign manager in ever, you can guarantee who ever follows Warnock will be English. If I was Gibson I would do what I did when he hired karaka find a assistant coach that's been under a great manager for a long time and see if he take the job. We have a mid table squad now thanks to Warnock, we have the chance to go for something new and fresh not old and stale for the next manager. The only thing I would do is try and hold on to Ronnie Jepson if Warnock is retiring, lets not bring in an inexperienced assistant manager if this manager is new lets give him good support and advice when needed so that if things get difficult we dont have a Woodgate situation.     Having said the above I think Warnock should stay on for the rest of this season, there's no harm in what hes doing to the club hes brought a doomed club from relegation to upper mid table team in the course of a season and got rid of some of the problems with the side in clayton and friend whos legs were shot plus tried to get rid of britt who is a big problem as he's expensive and not firing. Hes also brought in players like Morsey, Hall, Kebano Watmore and Bolasie who have added to the team who other managers will actually think are solid championship players next season. Maybe next season he can turn midtable into promotion or playoffs if he stays on.
