Summer Transfer Window 2018.


Recommended Posts

Regarding Ritchie I saw an interesting post on FMTTM regarding the numbers bandied around in the media. Put's into perspective just how big a commitment it would be:

 

"Very good player, but is £80k per week really a Championship salary?

That is around 50% of our annual gate receipts, to put that in perspective.

£15m fee amortised over a 4 year contract, takes up the other 50% of our gate per season."

 

Starting to think it's just his agent trying to get him a better contract at Newcastle United. Seen it all before.

 

KM just knows, he's so sure.

The Sun is saying that Stoke har offered Ritchie 75k a week! That's a lot of money in this division and I'm happy that we are seemingly not willing to match that.

 

That would be a big risk for Stoke, but they're guaranteed 3 years of parachute payments and Ritchie would probably be the best player in the division.

 

I'm fairly certain you only get two payments now one the summer you go down and one the following summer should you not go straight back up

 

That's only if you were if the Premier League for one season only, like we were. Stoke were obviously there for much longer, as were Swansea and WBA, so all will have the full three years.

The third year is much reduced though. 41 million the first year, 33 million the second year and "only" 15 million the third and final year.

For what it's worth too, Britt is still involved in the training sessions with everyone else this morning. I suspect he will play a part in the game this evening and whatever it was will be shrugged off.

 

The most interesting aspect will be the roles played by young talents; chapman, Tavernier, Wing and De Sart. Will they take their chance.

Saints frustrated at the club and our negotiating stance, thought they had agreement in principle. Expect them to move onto other targets soon

 

This can’t be true everything’s agreed.... :)

 

Wouldn't that suggest a deal was agreed and then we've tried to get something else?

 

So what's the hold up if everything's agreed? We've got the replacement.

Maybe Southampton have lost the club’s phone number, as for a deal to be agreed, they have to get in touch ?

I think Morrison would be in the starting 11, but that would require him to be fit, he would probably be on big wages too... just can't get very excited because the signing would probably mean we are not looking into another AM/CM.

 

On the other hand Morrison has proved he is Premier League quality, I'd be more enthusiastic if it weren't for his injury record and his age...

Shall I just keep putting the bits you're ignoring in bold for you or do I need to start writing everything in bold so you read it all?

Aden Flint...he's a replacement for an outgoing Ben Gibson. So what's the hold up? The deal's already done.

 

Southampton's Daily Echo are saying no approach has been made for the record.

    • Aw come on, Transfermarkt only has him down as being worth €17m! 
    • Bournemouth, Southampton, Leicester City ,Sheffield United, Norwich, Watford, Burnley, Leeds, Aston Villa, Wolves, Crystal Palace, Brighton, Fulham, West Brom we used to be on a very even par with them all and I would suggest above par at certain times. In relation to this season where the hell did it go so wrong with those teams above though yes I accept that we will be playing against 3 of them next season we all know we did not set the world alight with last seasons relegated clubs. Ok yes I am living in the past somewhat but still believe we could still be at their level and competeing with them all
    • In fairness to Gibson, he's not likely going to invest a lot of money while Warnock is in charge. I expect he'll be given a modest transfer budget...just a bit more than he had this season. Its not going to be another Garry Monk spending spree, thats for sure. At the moment I think the club is in damage limitation mode until they can get fans back in the stadium and money coming through the turnstiles. I think its a case of better the devil you know. We're not likely to improve much next season, but another mid-table finish will do while the club gets back on its feet financially and is in a position to attract a better standard of manager. I mean, if you were a talented and ambitious manager, would you look at Boro as a good career move right now?  
    • Indeed. We can point to lack of quality and strength in depth, (which definitely were factors), but how often did Boro concede ridiculously soft goals, either due to inept keeping or defending...basic schoolboy errors? If we'd at least been decently organised at the back, (not watertight - just decent), we might well be looking forward to the play-offs.  
    • We finished exactly where I expected us to, in all honesty. Always found the talk of play offs baffling when we just about stayed up last year and didn't improve the squad in any meaningful way.  You can get promoted with average players and a great manager (likes of Leeds, Sheff Utd, Burnley) or you can just have a bigger squad with much better players than everyone else (Bournemouth, Watford, WBA, Fulham etc). Then you get Wolves, Norwich, Newcastle that have both and walk the league.  We had the money to make a bigger, better squad than everyone else and blew it... We've also had about 5 opportunities to get the manager right. Now we have neither and that won't be changing over the summer, so I think people need to be realistic. Is Gibson working behind the scenes to bring in an ambitious, upcoming Bundesliga manager to take over Warnock's steady mid-table ship? Find it hard to believe personally.  Foreign billionaire fancies an investment in the north east? Again, highly doubt it... and careful what you wish for anyway and all that. We're a mid-table Championship side until a big catalyst comes in.
