Summer Transfer Window 2018.

Recommended Posts

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.

 

Well thank you.

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

 

I’ve never heard of him or this McNair fellow, but if our recruitment team rate them, then they must be good, are they?

I’m not sure our current recruitment team have picked these players... I’m pretty confident these are hand picked by TP

That's not true. We were after Flint last summer under Monk.

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

 

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

 

I'd love this to happen. Seems like the last time we had youngsters coming off the bench was McClaren era.

Really irks me if I'm honest that the likes of leadboots and Cranie take up bench spots. I'm sure the majority of fans would prefer to see a Chapman or Fry get minutes in games where we are comfortable.

I’ve seen a hell of a lot of Flint and I’m really happy we’ve signed him. He’s similar to Ayala but much stronger , less irratic and better going forward. They both score goals but Aden will svore many more with his feet.

If there’s a issue that concerns me about him is that for some reason he seems to score a few own goals to.

That doesn't mean Pulis didn't make this decision independently of the recruitment team. Out of all the defenders in the Championship, if Pulis was going to pick 2 to have in his team it would be Ayala and Flint.

He could end up our top scorer if we count both ends of the pitch.

Not saying he didn't. But it's not like Pulis has plucked Flint's name out of thin air that the club weren't looking at previously.

As regards to another CM Dack and Besic get continuous mentions so if you could choose one which would you rather?

Fair point though I think Pulis has already changed how the recruitment team works... club bought Bevington in and I think Pulis is going down tried and tested players if I’m honest

That’s a fair point , I think time will tell with that and his subtle changes will become more prevalent

    • Statistically (if you believe them), Johnson and Spence have made the same amount of tackles (5), the same amount of interceptions (3) too. Spence has a slightly lower tackle %. They've both blocked the same amount of crosses too (1). Johnson has a pass completion of 50%, Spence has a pass completion of 65%. They've both made the same amount of key passes (1). They've both made the same amount of successful crossed (1), but Spence has a successful cross % almost double Johnson's. Just some unbiased stats, to show actually statistically they are similar as it stands.
    • well, that's where you hope that an experienced Manager like Warnock, picks the right team McNair is also our best LCB at the moment. I thought his switch with Howson worked well on Saturday, allowed us to overload the right hand side.
    • @TarmoI'm sure he's neither left or right footed
    • Just wait until until a couple of defeats and people will talk about trying square pegs in round holes with Dijksteel as CB. Dijksteel has had 2 decent performances at CB as has Mcnair so to say they are better CB's than Fry is completely laughable and a joke. I agree Fry isnt a left sided CB and he would probably agree. (but again here comes the criticism of our homegrown players - absolute joke). Wait until McNair and Dijksteel come up against a striker like Denney, Keifer Moore and you will see exactly why they are not CB's. McNair is our best CM imo and wasted as CB, that showed again at the weekend.  Difference of opinions but Johnson is creating a lot more chances and is a lot better defensively than Spence imo.
    • Search the term "Spence" in the search box and you'll see at least 2 comments out of 2 whole pages were someone praises him. Not sure if you are missing the posts that criticise him and are homing in on the few that praise him.
