Summer Transfer Thread, (Closes 8pm tonight)

Recommended Posts

Wisdom, afobe and gradel would be 3 excellent signings, not sure if we'd need wisdom like if we keep Fabio. Offer Bournemouth £15m for gradel and afobe and see if we get anywhere.

Seen as though we have a habit of signing ex players...

 

 

 

Marvin Emnes is a free agent.

 

 

 

BRING HIM HOME.

You've already suggested this, and it wasn't funny then...

Aye, I saw an article saying we should sign Afobe. On looking at him though, he was a regular for them last season. Unless they bring in other names and plan on putting Wilson back in the limelight after he recovers from his injury, I'm not sure how willing Bournemouth would be to let Afobe go.

 

Great player. Think he'd fit Monk's system perfectly. Would be one of those on that 'dream target list' someone asked for before.

Honestly didn't even realise I had already suggested him. Anyway, lighten up man. :P

It's been suggested at least 10 times by 10 different people.

 

As for afobe he will probably be behind Defoe aswell as king, not so sure about Wilson as he isn't the most reliable with injuries. Afobe isn't a great PL striker and if Bournemouth want to progress I can see them looking to replace him.

Another player who's future is uncertain - Freddie Woodman at Newcastle. Had a great tournament for the U20s.

That the keeper? I thought he was awful until the penalty save. Certainly nowhere near good enough for us.

I'm willing to bet a ton of money that you didn't watch him in the other games he played. Pretty decent keeper, less of a risk than Ripley at this level.

How is he less of a risk than Ripley who is a lot more experienced? Woodman has 15 games for Kilmarnock and 12 games for Crawley in League 2. Ripley has 40 games for Motherwell, 54 games for Oldham and a season in Sweden. There can be absolutely no doubt that Ripley is the better and most experienced keeper for a top Championship team. Woodman would be an monster gamble while the step up for Ripley to the Championship would be natural. Being good in a U-20 tournament means very little compared to a season at the top end of the Championship where the pressure is relentless.

How is League One's keeper of the year more of a risk than a keeper who played half a season in Scotland?

I missed the first 2 group games but watched the rest so I'll keep my opinion thanks. In fact keepers in general were the poorest part of the tournament for me, none looked good.

Less of a risk? OK.

I do think Ripley is further along in his development (he is 4 years older after all). Rippers has done his time in Scotland and had a great season with Oldham last term.

 

Woodman would be good competition and has a lot of potential to be a very good keeper, but he's probably leaving Newcastle in search of being a No. 1. Reckon a lower Champo side will snap him up.

    • Two scoring draws last term between the teams and always a close call before that. Forest you would expect to shrug off their poorish start and to progress, but they will also be desperate to start winning. However I would suspect Houghton will be content with a point at the Riverside but for Boro we need to start winning back to back games and I believe we will be too much for Forest and achieve a rare event of late. Maybe travelling teams will be showing a bit more respect towards us as a whole but I do think the game will be very different than seen against Coventry. Going for a home win though at start of season would have been ok with a draw  
    • Forest have so many attacking options, IF we win this it'll set a great marker for where we are heading.
    • I can see Spence dropping to the bench and one of bola or Johnson stepping in, with tav on the right. I assume that was the purpose of the subs the other night. roberts back to the bench as well perhaps.... if no akpom, I’m comfortable with Browne starting, he has done everything asked of him so far. Midfield and defence picks itself, barring injury 
    • So I've seen lots of highlights recently where both penalties and red cards were given, I thought they'd moved away from red cards if it was a penalty, or is it still a red card for being last man?
    • Hopefully Akpom is fit and if he is I would go to a 3.5.2. I would also bring Coulson in. I want him to succeed here and NW said he looked bright in training. Betti Dijk Fry Paddy Tav Howson Morsy Sav Coulson Britt Akpom I would love a win but i rate forest. Would not be too disappointed with a draw.
