Summer Transfer Window 2018.

Recommended Posts

LW would be my priority above all else. Then another CM or number 10, if Fabio stays I'm not too concerned with Fullbacks but a new face there would be welcome.

Randolph

Shotton Ayala Flint Friend

Adama Howson Clayton Mcnair ???

Britt / Bamford or Gestede

 

Happy with that as our starting 11.

 

Left wing now a huge priority. Hopefully with Gibson going we can sign someone pretty decent.

Just out of interest, if Flint hadn't scored a few goals what would people make of the signing?

 

Happy, I've watched him play a few times and have always thought he's a good defender first and foremost. The effect at the other end is a positive but its secondary to why I'm happy we've signed him.

little bit slow and leggy at times, seems to tire in big intense games so probably need to work on his fitness a lot this summer but when on form he's like a rio/woodgate for me knows he doesn't have the pace massively but makes up for it positionally and can make a last ditch tackle.

I would've probably said he's too similar of a style to Ayala as a defender. Wins his duels but isn't very good on the ball, a very Pulis like defender. But if you do factor in his goals and add it to ours we'd be on the same goal difference as Cardiff...

Flint always seemed to be someone who could soak up alot of pressure that Bristol got and I'd describe him as our version of Ayala.

 

If a ball is going in their box, 9/10 flint is going to win it. He isn't the best across the floor but positional and set pieces really good at both ends.

 

Always seem to be very vocal on the pitch and we need more leaders on the pitch for me anyway.

Yes, we're basically going to have 2 Ayalas. He has thee same strengths, but I'm slightly concerned that he has the same weaknesses.

LW, attacking CM (for the 3), and LB/RB. CF if either of Britt or Bam goes. Cover for RW would be good also.

More or less this.

Agreed, though hoping the RW cover will be Chapman or Tav if they step up

Third hand information, admittedly, but a lad who works with my cousin is adamant that we've had a bid accepted for Adomah. He apparently "hears stuff" every now and again.

Take it with a pinch of salt if you'd like, but just passing it on.

My top five priorities would be:

#1 LW

#2 LW

#3 LW

#4 LW

#5 LW

 

Someone made a great point earlier, that a quality LW is going to help Friend. Have a rep point whoever you are.

    • I think how much people rate Bamford is quite bizarre also. It certainly isn't a hands down decision between Britt and Bamford. In fact between the 2 their goalscoring records in the championship are remarkably similar. Bamford has 55 in 147 where Britt has 65 from 169, meaning Britts is marginally better. However, I know people are going to say for at least 15-20 of those games Bamford didn't play as a striker but Assombalonga played more under Pulis which is even more of a disadvantage. On a side note, I know Pulis and a number of his staff really didn't see eye to eye with Assombalonga but I can't blame Britt for being a bit annoyed at the tactics being employed which didn't suit his or most strikers games.   I personally think Britt is a better goalscorer than Bamford but Bamford is a more intelligent player. Britt misses more than Bamford granted but he puts himself in those situations to score/miss a lot more than Bamford does also.   Anyhow sorry for sidetracking the thread further I just think the tunnel vision related to Bamford at times is barmy! 
    • He's the best striker we've had in the Championship in the entire decade we've been here, in my opinion. We've had a bunch of relatively high scoring strikers during the past decade, Emnes, McDonald, Bamford and Britt. I think Bamford sits at the top of that list.
    • I'm surprised people on here still don't realise he's far better than what we have now. And the best championship striker we've had for years. But hey. 
    • The bar for strikers over the last decade or so is awfully low - is it really surprising that people rate Bamford highly, when he probably is up there in the conversation for best striker we've had in years?
