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.

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.

    • I’m not getting carried away, again we have played better against a struggling Cardiff team.    Im worried that we don’t seem to string passes consistently together but then when we do we seem to create clear cut chances. I wonder how good we would be if we did that more often.    Happy for Payero today, I really think he’s made our midfield a bit more dynamic and without Howson and McNair in there to slow it down we look better going forward.    Tav is so wasteful. I wouldn’t want to drop him, but I think he thinks he’s better than he is and I can’t work out why he doesn’t play the obvious pass but then would moan at Uche for not squaring it to him.    Uche was a handful all game and I’m gutted he didn’t get a goal, another day his left footed curler goes in.    We rode our luck and should have conceded but the luck has been with us the last two games so it’s about time.    not getting carried away but can’t complain with three wins and clean sheets on the spin. Go team. 
    • At least Warnock has a future in HR training when he decides to pack football in.
    • Hard to argue against me being fickle given I was vocally calling for a change after Hull.  We've lost this season with better performances than against Peterborough. We've also only beaten 3 poor teams, but I'm back on board right now, and I'm glad to be so. I like Warnock as a person, so even when it was going badly I wanted a change for results rather than because of who he is.
    • Derby drew again. You're not gonna stay up by drawing, guys
    • You don't go to Wembley in the top 2 mate
