Summer Transfer Window 2018.

Recommended Posts

Which left footerd, natural left wingers are there out there that are at the top end of the Championship/lower Premier League standard?. The names off the top of my head are March, Reach, McClean etc. If we have £15 million to spend then we could surely afford any of them but I'd still much rather take a Ritchie or Snodgrass over one of the lesser effective natural left wingers listed previously. Reach does seem to have stepped up a level since he left us but I'd still prefer more of a proven player.

There are plenty outside th shores of England. If you are looking at players who are proven at Championship there are obviously very few.

I think we should bring Jordan Graham in on a free personally, can comfortably cover both wings, experienced in the Championship. He actually has a decent assists record, I mentioned him a couple of weeks back. I'd still like another winger in as well as, but he'd certainly fit the bill for me.

That’s the Ritchie rumour over and done with, time to move onto other possibilities

Good shout that. The kid looked like he was gonna be a world beater before that big injury, then made a baffling decision to go to Fulham on loan and compete with Sessegnon.

Very very good delivery aswell. Think I'd probably take him or Grosiki.

Not hugely fussed if we don't get him. But being linked with a left footed winger in the first place is very encouraging.

I thought about Grosicki but he's just had a very hit and miss season with Hull. His return for his number of starts is pretty good but I seem to remember he came on against us and scored at the KC and he wasn't starting because his head wasn't in it for the Championship. Clearly got the talent, his mentality would seem to be another thing entirely.

The Northern Echo have said we aren't in discussions with Newcastle for Matt Ritchie.

Agree he definitely has question marks over his mentality however Hull has been a pretty toxic place to be over the last couple of seasons, similar to Mcnair at Sunderland really where people questioned whether he was really doing his all to get back.

However Pulis I think would be a decent manager for the guy, and I think our changing room is likely a lot more upbeat place to be than Hulls at the moment. 

 

I've heard Hull are pretty much having a fire sale so if we could get him for under 5m it would be a no brainer for me.

Struggle to find better than grosiki at this level when he's on form I just hope we don't over look Watkins.

    • Well after Stoke I really fancied us to beat Hull and QPR, it shows how carried away I got. After Hull and QPR I can't see where the next point is coming from.  All the proposed teams on this thread show that we don't have a clue who our best eleven is. That was backed up the other day by Warnock's team selection.  I'm going to predict a hammering (3-0) to Millwall and hope I'm as wrong as I have been for the last few games. 
    • This is what I would want to see. More of a 3-5-2 which has worked for us at times this season. I feel like we need Howson in midfield as our midfielders are just useless and lack any leadership, he can at least make a tackle. Saville to start if we want more balance or Tav if we wanna go for it. Roberts behind the striker and just let him run at them on the counter attack, maybe him and Britt could get something going. Let Spence and Coulson offer our pace and width as wingsback.                                          Stojanovic    Spence - Fry - Moukoudi - Friend/Shotton - Coulson                          Howson - McNair - Saville/Tav                                       Roberts                                               Britt/Fletch                             Not that it matters like, don't have much hope for this game.
    • Half-way through Mad Men and just started series 5 of The Bureau, both excellent. 
    • Warnock's had a good shuffle of the pack now. That's the desperate hope that his selections will finally click and maybe lady luck will smile on us too.
    • Got a competition launching if your interested.   Predict all the scores in the Prem games this weekend 5 Points if you get the correct score 2 Points for correct result Person with the most points takes the pot   £5 a go Join the group https://www.facebook.com/groups/1606647006164160/ Entry Form.xlsx
