Summer Transfer Window 2018.

Recommended Posts

 

BREAKING: Birmingham have been placed under a transfer embargo after breaching FFP rules during their spending spree last season when they signed 13 players! Birmingham will face further punishment if new signing Kristian Pedersen plays after the EFL declined to register him!

 

That's a blow for us trying to shift Johnson and Fletcher to Monk.

 

Ouch. Harry Redknapp does it again. Feel a bit sorry for their new signing who is left in a bit of a limbo. Just earlier today I read an article on the Birmingham Mail where Monk was really positive about how discussions were going with the chairman about signing new players. Could explain why they’ve listed high earners like Stockdale. Could we get Jota on the cheap then.

Britt and Bamford having some Bantz

 

 

Someone's definitely a bit jealous that they're 3rd choice.

Why would our left winger be 3rd choice striker? :cheese:

Does anyone think we could sell Ayala if Gibbo stays?? Can’t imagine Flint has been brought in as back up? Or could we let fry go out on loan perhaps?

Pulis seems to be a big fan of Ayala which is why I can't get my head round the Flint signing if Gibbo is staying.

Potential of us playing without full-backs. Effectively 4 CBs (Shotton, Ayala, Flint, Gibson). Rumours have been doing the rounds. I can see it happening.

Selecting four from the five good quality options of Shotton, Ayala, Flint, Gibson and Friend will surely help keep them all happy as even the fifth choice will get a lot of game time with injuries and suspensions, especially considering Ayala is injury prone. Obviously we'll need a few extra lesser proven defenders to add the depth but the quality and likelihood of keeping them all them five happy would fill me with confidence.

 

The main issue is whether it's wise to keep Gibson at LB when we could potentially spend the £15 million (estimate) wiser in other areas of the squad.

With Fry it's 6 options, which is just about right to offer cover and keep players happy. Judging by the fact that Fry was tested at 'right-back' in the friendly and of course CB, and that Friend has played CB at times in his career as well as of course LB, then we'd arguably have sufficient back-up for this type of system across the whole back 4. Just about, at a push.

Why stop there, why not put CBs on the wing too? :)

    • I think we'll be ok in the end but it's a lot closer than it should be.  I don't think we'll be relegated as there are worse teams than us and that'll be the difference rather than us being too good ourselves.  Things need sorting out in a big way before the following season.
    • I'm interested as how players will perform playing behind closed doors. You always hear of players who were brilliant in training but could never find that performance in the games. Without the pressure of fans I wonder if we will see some surprise performances from certain players. From watching a bit of the Bundesliga this past week or so it seems the home advantage doesn't have as big an impact without the fans there.
    • The thing is if we do end up selling Fry or any other player for decent money we can rebuild a strong side if our scouting is up too scratch. As alot of clubs will be struggling financially this summer so it will very much be a buyer's market! Just hope we do alot better than last summer's recruits 🙄.  I am very much against selling Fry and spending the magority on bringing in Gibson believe there is alot cheaper options out there and if it wasn't for the nostalgia we wouldn't be looking at Gibson!  
    • The Daily Fail are reporting that Galatasaray are in for Lyle Taylor now... Odd one that.
    • So what you are saying is we could stay up or we could go down.
