Summer 2016 Transfer window

Recommended Posts

With grants injury I don't think we'll move any cm on now. Also wouldn't be surprised if de sart is first choice by seasons end, he's supposed to be that good.

 

Im just looking at room in the squad if we keep 5 midfielders it probably means we cannot sign a winger. I dont see Karanka selling stuani either.

De Sart won't be moved on. There's a lot of positive murmurings about him of late.

Coentrao for the LB position? Out of favour at Madrid, knows Aitor well, sent out on loan last season.

 

Used to really rate him a few years back, if that's the player we got I'd be over the moon. I don't know why he's spectacularly fallen away at Real though.

this current squad is about as close as i can remember, if ramirez, subotic, negredo and barragan deals get done anyhow.

 

get these deals done consolidate in the league this season. next season will be the big one where we kick on for real.

 

Couple of fairly substantial 'Ifs' there though isn't there,

1) getting those deals over the line

2) getting them to gel and play well enough to allow to us to 'consolidate' our position.

3) And then actually kicking on next season (assuming it hasn't all gone tits up).

 

To be honest I think the above is the aim of just about every team that gets promoted, with the exception of burnely who seem to be satisfied with being average and buying averagely.

 

I'd probably say our European squad had better individuals (viduka, Southgate and errr parnaby) supplemented with some poorer players but this squad would have more quality distributed through the ranks

I think the De Pena will be the most difficult to move on but he is far from good enough for the 25

Question, how many of the new players have played in the AK formation before ?

I think that only really matters for the attacking players, midfielders play with a partner in many systems and a back 4 is a back 4 so the defenders will be fine I imagine

Reading want Reach on loan and have enquired. Such a tough one for me

On weather we keep or get rid. I think every player deserves a chance this pre season, De Pena included.

There was a comment from one of the gazette lads the other day saying something along the lines of "We don't want to get too excited but there's whispers that we could have something very special on our hands with de Sart"

I think stuani could go if an offer comes in at a reasonable price karanka would be more than happy to sell to free space up in the final squad to bring in a new winger personally I think reach could do a job there this season.

    • What a great result and I loved the lineup! Amazing how we didn’t crumble and let in loads of goals with Roberts in the team. Hopefully he gets more involvement going forward.    nice to see Spence and Johnson doing well and getting some credit too as that hasn’t happened much so far this season. Bringing them on when we are ahead may be a useful tactic given they will be more likely to have space to run into which suits them.    I know Watmore was a bit rusty as we’d expect but I think if he stays fit he could be a real bonus for us this season. 
    • Interesting question really, to which there is no easy answer. I guess it’s probably one of the essential questions of football strategy. Perhaps one of the reasons behind our excellent defensive record (so far) is that we do press, thus containing the opposition in their own half. Although playing the ball around in midfield might open up more options, it does give the other team more time to organise their defence. There is a lot to be said for counter-attacking football – basically the element of surprise – but it is risky because you are playing too much in your own half and over-relying on your defenders. I’m not a great fan of that, however good they are. To be honest, I’m quite happy with the way things are at present. Effectively we scored twice tonight (I don’t count own goals) and we were pretty clinical, which is a welcome change.  
    • Second the counter attacking style, fortunes have changed once I tried to use a high press as opposed to dominating the game with possession on Football Manager 21 haha!
    • I'd agree, with the squad available to us I don't think a full team high press quite works for us. I think sitting deeper, not pressing  as high up and letting the opposition push forwards to open up space behind their defence suits us best, with team in it's current form. Combine this with situational high presses like the first part I mentioned and as you say an emphasis on making the most from set pieces too could well be a real good tactic for us. I do think we have these basics in place already, but as you say a bit more adventure in certain areas could make all these little parts a really effective whole.
    • I'm not a massive fan of the second way and it is the way we've set up more often than not this season. But even with that general tactic I feel like there's better ways of exploiting it and we actually managed it in parts tonight - to me the key is set pieces. It we get the ball up early, do our high press then give the ball asap to Roberts, spence and tav in particular then they will draw fouls and corners. We just need to then be better at capitalising on these opportunities when we get them. It's not pretty but I do think with a couple of tweeks, the major one being more adventurous wing play, we can score a lot more goals in this system than we are.
