Summer Transfer Window 2018.

Recommended Posts

Watkins does sound like a great prospect. Haven’t seen him play but sounds like a player with lots of potential.

I see Jack Rodwell is available. £73k a week? Bargain.

Of course it's a joke. His League One wages is a paltry 44k a week. I mean how could the poor man live on that?

Rodwell is out of sunderland. So is he a free agent ie. has no wage to match. Or has his agent set a wage. How does this work

I'm pretty sure I read somewhere that he's off to the MLS. The same article said that his wage would have dropped to 44k if he had stayed for his final year. They also said that the McNair money was used to pay him off

Selling one of your best players in order to pay the wages of an overpaid, overrated player who doesn't want to stay at the club?

 

Yup, no wonder Sunderland are in the ***.

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.

 

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.

 

Grosicki is a class player if he's motivated and happy, he looked really good in the Premier league.

 

I know a couple of Hull fans and they reckon every player there is available, they pretty much believe the Hull owners are deliberately trying to run the club into the ground. I can understand why players wouldn't be happy there.

Lewis Baker on his way to Leeds United apparently. Bit of an odd signing for us wasn't he?

Judging by the EG's back page, Ritchie is an actual target.

 

They don't give the back page to some second hand rumour from another source. If we look at they way the EG treated the McNair and Flint deals then is starting to follow that similar pattern.

Newcastle have said that there has been contact from 3 different teams but no bids, even if we don't sign him it's nice to know that our priority now is a talented winger...

Just thinking of the Ritchie thing. Should he drop down a division; whoever gets him would be making the signing of the summer. He would quite possibly be the difference between finishing in the top 6 and the top 2. He's been one of Newcastle's top performers since signing for them; most Newcastle fans are against any sale.

Just in case it wasn't clear, I was joking about Rodwell.

 

He should be on more than £73k a week.

    • and replace him with who? Ivan Toney at a higher price who is unproven in the championship? We can all see that Brit is not perfect but replacing him is much harder, especially when good strikers are the most saught after commodity for teams in any division
    • The whole Cummings affair and how much the senior Tory cabinet members have attempted to shield him from being held responsible really drives that home. It's so important that everyone adheres to the rules and adheres to the spirit of it, get out and clap every Thursday and as one body and mind, we'll get through this together. Unless you're the chief adviser to the PM, in which case the only thing that matters is whether you've legally done anything wrong. And what drives me up the *** wall is how hardcore Brexiteers spent the entirety of the 2019 election campaign defending the media harassment of anybody who might think walking off the edge of a cliff is a bad idea, but now think the media are the scum of the Earth for taking on poor family man Dominic Cummings.
    • Ah but BD, you live in a country where people are socially responsible, we live in a vou try with a weak government that gives out mixed messages that are in turn interpreted by the general public to fit there own agendas.  it’s very worrying.
