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.

    • I remember sitting in a pub in the Algarve that had a load of different games in TV for that 8-1 game. Was with my dad and brother, next to a bunch of united fans (were playing Wigan who were just above us going into that final weekend). Drunkenly said to one of them that I'll get a round of shots in for every goal they put past Wigan, and one of their group chimed in that he'd do the same every time we scored.   Safe to say I got the better deal
    • I think you may be right. I seem to remember moaning about the lack of goals we scored that season. 
    • That City game was a freak game rather than a brilliant performance.  It was common knowledge that Ericsson was going to be sacked after the game so I don't think their players were fully motivated, City went down to 10 men and a few of their players threw the towel in after that. We scored a few great goals in that game but it felt a bit like a friendly game towards the end of the match.  I think that result has become more famous over the years because of how big City have become, before they had the money they were no bigger than us as a club and it felt like we used to beat them every season. 
    • Funnily enough enough as far as I remember that 8-1 was the only game that entire season when we scored more than 2 goals. I may be wrong but it's what I remember, didn't bother checking haha. 
    • I went for Brentford.  I think the games I'd like to see are the last game at Ayresome Park, Boro 4-1 vs United and Man City 8-1. The last 2 would be a great reminder to the recent Boro teams you are allowed to win by more than a goal and score more than 3 on occasions.
