Summer 2016 Transfer window


Recommended Posts

while i've been watching a few german highlights i liked the look of karim bellarabi. rw/ss. looks a player him, although i've never heard of him is transfermarkt value is 12mill. guess hes already highly rated.

 

Just had a watch of him and he looks unreal! Kind of a mix of payet and mahrez.

 

Someone else I noticed was Charlie musonda on loan at betis. Doesn't have the best stats but he only played 14 games and it's his first full season. However he is so direct I'm not joking when I say almost messi like with the ball at his feet. His balance, turn of pace and ability to shift direction are unreal, I really hope we've been having a look at him, would excite the fans no end.

Just looked at musonda situation. Seems he doesn't want to go back to Chelsea because of lack of game time and betis want to keep him but apparently he gave a 'cryptic farewell' message to betis fans on his insta.

 

We really should look at this guy!!

So far we've got a thread for rumours and now this one for linked players and I propose that we don't open any more, concise or otherwise.

 

This will trample on some toes, no doubt, but existing transfer-related threads are going to be merged. The new thread will be authored by Atokous and he will maintain a summary in the opening post, as he did last time.

This is going to be our transfers thread. Existing transfer-related threads will be merged with this one.

 

I have arranged for Atokous to be the thread's author so that he can, as agreed, maintain a summary of transfer activity in the opening post.

Isn't Ramirez not a free agent though? I thought he signed a pre contract deal with his old club in Argentina and that he would cost money to buy out his "contract" in the close season.

    • 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 🤷
