January 2017 Transfer Window


Recommended Posts

today is the day I realise we are going back to the Championship

 

Well at least if we do we'll have plenty of Championship players to help us there  :)

 

True - I've kinda missed playing Cardiff and Birmingham anyway :)

I think Gibson is just avoiding paying anything over £10m now, maybe we aren't 'safe' enough at this point of the season for him to risk it.

 

Not sure how I feel about it I mean at least with someone like jay Rodriguez we'd get our money back.

I have to disagree there Paul because we do have the players to keep us up and if adaptations can be made to the free flowing negative football we play then I think we can do fight on for another season in the PL :)

So in conclusion we have as CT mentioned not got a good track record with our signings. In fact I would say it was terrible and does not bode well for the rest of the day!

 

That's a bit misleading, as we have improved year on year in terms of position. If we hadn't been promoted, I'm sure Nugent, Nsue, Adomah etc would still be here.

A loan then? There has to be something happening though, doesn't there? DOESN'T THERE?

Fack, took me several hours to get through these last two days of despair posts in this thread.. I want my life back! :D

 

When we could splash 12 mil on De Roon, I would suggest us to at least try 15-18 mil on Jay Rodrigues!

 

We NEED a winger .. NOW! ... TODAY!

 

Calm Down man.. Ok I will ..

Talking to my self now.. Jesus ..

It's not really when you consider that there are more players here from before Karanka joined us than have been here from that first full season.  In fact even looking at it since the season after that, there are still more here from before he became our manager.  Only Stuani and Downing are still here from the summer before last and one of those I think we'd be happy to get rid of if we could.  It's a pretty poor record if you think about it.  A heck of a lot of players come and go here very quickly.

I have the same feeling now that I had at the same point under Southgate in the Premier league. While teams around us are trying we are not doing enough to try and stay up, Steve Gibsom gets all the praise when things are going well but if we go down again this season he's got to take some blame because our transfer policy hasn't been good enough so far.

Yes you are correct but as not a single deadline day signing is still here or has improved the team then what hope is there in the names currently being plucked from thin air?

 

I'm not sure what the relevance of when a player is signed has on how capable he is? Kike Sola was signed early in the window last winter and was cack, Rhodes and Ramirez signed right at the death and got us promoted.

Bit of a stretch to say they got us promoted.  We actually weren't much better after they signed, in fact we were worse actually although it wasn't down to them obviously.  Ramirez signed a week before the window closed I think?
