Summer Transfer Thread, (Closes 8pm tonight)

Recommended Posts

With 40m+ to spend and a big wage budget Redknapp would have us promoted this year there's no doubt in my mind about that.

 

He'd be worse than Strachan!

 

everyone manages to find alternative targets except Boro who chase their no.1 targets to the wire.

 

I agree that we did that in January, but it has been different this time round.

 

It was different whilst we were paying out the money in June/July and then we've chased Shotton all month with Kent/Ojo besides a little detour to Jota and Marvin there's been no 'new' names crop up really all August that's why I think we're replicating January except instead of Snodgrass it looks like our no.1 is Kent. To be fair it seems Sunderland want Kent on loan as well so maybe there is some signal we have about LFCs willingness to loan that has made us sit tight but you look at how quickly Fulham have moved on from Jota compared to us who seemingly have shrugged it all off and are sat by the phone for Kent or our business is concluded. Still think we've had a good window regardless and Marvin is a big old unit for a winger so I can see he's not a typical lower league winger but I can just see us 1 winger short here and we've fell into our January strategy again.

 

I just don't think the Jota deal was on for us. We tried, but the club and player preferred a different destination.

 

I think Monk has got all the targets in the positions he asked for. Kent would be a bonus, I don't see it as critical.

 

Not many teams better than this in the league:

 

------------------ Randolph ------------------

-- Christie -- Ayala -- Gibson -- Friend --

------------------- Clayton -------------------

------------ Howson ----- Baker -----------

-- Bamford ----------------- Braithwaite --

--------------- Assombalonga ---------------

Add to that the strength of our bench...

The best Marvin since Emnes. Due to a confidentially clause Boro can't reveal the fee, an initial £2.5m rising with Motherwell getting 25%

 

Hahaha. Love this. You aren't going to tell us so we'll just put a figure in there. What's the worst than can happen, you correct us in 3 years and ban our reporters.....oh wait...

 

Let's face it though, if there's a clause in a contract that the other team has to give a percentage away, they're not gonna want to give away how much of the fee they have to pass on.

I love Harry. There I've said it.    Why do people supporting other teams hate him if he fails who cares  it's because he gives supporters hope. He signs players that should never play for the clubs he manages and he brings glamour.

 

He wanted us to be docked 10 points instead of the actual 3 points we were docked.  Maybe you're not old enough to remember that period of our history.

Thats right the walley wanted us relegated

That's a very good group of players at this level it's just down to Monk now to make us look like a team.

Redknapp just has to be managed correctly by the owner, if he had to work with a budget and wage limit he'd be fine.

 

With 40m+ to spend and a big wage budget Redknapp would have us promoted this year there's no doubt in my mind about that.

 

Thats mental.  The guy is a liability...

I doubt they can get away with telling the wrong fee and not paying what they have to.

Don't think I've ever agreed as much with you. It's been discussed over and over again yet nothing's changed.

    • As CT alluded to possibly on another thread, some people like to knock our young lads at every opportunity. I don’t get it. 
    • Still depends on what you're looking for. I'd say some of the bigger ones include: World of Warcraft Guild Wars 2 The Elder Scrolls Online Final Fantasy XIV EVE Online Runescape Black Desert Online. There's a new one coming in early 2021 that looks quite interesting called New World.  
    • i said it last season, the kids will keep improving and be even better as time goes on. thats what we see now. some of the football today was nice and need fast football. players involved were the young lads and bola. they know eachothers game they are pretty familiar and now the confidence is coming for them we are seeing them express themselves. the shackles are coming off and the young lads are starting to show us what they can do. give it a few months if this form keeps up these kids will be flyin and the goals will be flowing. lot more to come from us yet. well done NW you can see they all love him he's like a grandad figure to them never mind a father figure. he'll give them the love and build their confidence and we'll keep seeing the results of that in their performances, UTB.
    • NW says he has been training at Rockcliffe for the last couple of weeks so his knee must be ok now. NW wants to get him so who would argue with his judgement? Not me.
    • I can't believe it was 5 years ago when I posted this.  Are there any good new ones out that people know about?
