Summer Transfer Thread, (Closes 8pm tonight)

Recommended Posts

£30mil plus incentives and personally I'd sell him. We should easily be able to replace him with that sort of money and also have some left over for other areas.

Like has been said, if we kick off the sale of Gibson first then we'll undoubtedly add an extra £5m minimum to any replacement we try to sign.

 

My thinking behind the mutual agreement for Shotton was more that we'd be more open to contributing to Downing's wages should Shotton be allowed to leave for cheaper. I mean it's six and two threes regardless of what happens if there is some kind of deal made.

Say we got £30mil that would get us flint and Bartley for £15m-£17m then money left over for #10 or winger

Flint and Bartley are both significantly worse than Gibson, so why sell?

As good as Gibson is, I personally don't see him being any where near the England set up come the summer.

 

Unless there are any drastic injuries I don't think he'd be part of the squad...

No I'm pretty sure that you are right, he's not international quality yet, £30m for an uncapped championship player is a lot of money though.

I'd agree with this.

 

I think the following are all ahead of him:

 

Cahill, Stones, Smalling, Keane, Maguire, arguably Chambers and knowing England, Phil Jones too.

Disagree. The one good thing going for him is that he is a natural left sided CB. He has every chance of being there.

Gibbo would be perfect on the left side of a back 3, which would suit City/Spurs - and maybe England if they setup that way

Not even Stones or Smalling. Stones will get there via virtue of hype regardless of how he plays this season. Last season he was rubbish and yet we still want to call him up at every opportunity.

 

Obviously something there but it's one of the strangest things ever, a centre back who is being lauded for everything but the ability to defend. It's a recipe for disaster when playing against some of the best strikers in the world. He's a *** Jonny Woodgate.

I've based all of my choices based on hype. England managers go with the hype, hence picking players like Phil Jones and Jesse Lingard ahead of more deserving players.

Maguire and Chambers are not better than Gibson.

    • Both Villa and Bournemouth have suddenly woken up today.  Perhaps we could do the same... We probably need 4 points from remaining 3 games and I'm not at all confident of them. 
    • Completely self inflicted implosion from Leicester there. All 4 goals were from embarassing mistakes. You'd expect they'll miss out on the top 4 now, they'll be praying that Man City's ban is upheld.
    • I wonder why Coulson isn't getting a look in at the moment. I would have always had him ahead of Johnson in every aspect of the game. We need to find a way of playing a more passing game. Roberts was very disappointing last time out. I think Wing, Tav, Coulson, Fletcher and Assombalonga all need to start. And I think Pears needs bringing back Pears Friend Fry Shotton Coulson Spence Howson Tavernier Fletcher Wing Assombalonga
    • Hughton is beyond us financially and wouldn't come to a bottom end Championship or League 1 club.  He turned down others because he only wants to manage in Premier league. 
    • The only thing I can think of with regard to our last 2 home performances, is perhaps its the thought of the crowd getting on their backs
