Summer Transfer Window 2018.

Recommended Posts

The guys right though, we get away with shotton because traore can do so much on his own.

 

If we manage to keep him another season I'll be gutted to see him once again left isolated with 3 men round him having to do it all himself.

 

One of the things that's supposed to be good about the championship for a club like us is we can open up a bit and not have to be so cautious.

 

4 cbs along the back line for a club like us at this level would just be annoying, unecessary and tbh laughable. Specially if we take the extra step and play an orthodox LB at lw just because they're a bit on the attacking side.

 

Who said we're gonna play a left back at left wing?!

 

Or is this another oneboro forum meltdown about a player we haven't signed, and who everyone has just assumed if he does sign will be played out of position?!

 

Bryan played a few games for Bristol at lw and he's one of them full backs who's a bit to attacking for a defender. If it happened I wouldn't be passing out with shock.

If we keep 20+ clean sheets he can play 4 CBs, though if Gibbo is staying 3 at the back with wingbacks seems more likely, to me anyway.

Think that Rhodes has been pretty well travelled at this point.

If we got Phillips and Besic through the door in the next week would people be happy?

Yes. Although Phillips seem to have played the bulk of his career at right wing and is right footed. Is he equally good on the left.

Yeah, I'd be pretty pleased with that.

Was actually just thinking yesterday it had gone a bit quiet on the Besic front, I'm glad his name is still in the frame.

If those two came in and we signed a left back (although I wouldn't say it's the end of the world if we don't) I'd be closing the doors and locking them till the window shuts.

Depends if phillips coming in means traore leaving unless he can play from the left. But yea they are 2 signings I won't complain about, always liked Phillips since he was at Blackpool.

I'd still prefer a natural left sided attacking player otherwise I think we'll end up trying to make do.

    • You know I stopped saying things like that when I left Marton Road infants school back in the early 60s.  😄😄
    • I agree with you. I think Hugill did go to ground a lot but probably because when he played, the closest person near him when ball was played to him were the fans in the stands. Probs thought best i can do is win a free kick. QPR and Preston showed when you use him properly, i.e in a front 2 he is actually very decent at this level. A lot better than he showed here imo.
    • Has anyone been watching these? They have been quite decent listens. They have had one with Mowbray and another with McClaren, Beswick and Harrison as well so far.  
    • I think Hugill was all too often on the ground and I couldn't stand that in a big physical lad, more-so than the regular diving player... but I also think he'd have scored more goals under Woodgate than he did Pulis. Though you could probably apply that to a lot of strikers.
    • I disagree. Replacing Britt is not the hard part imo. Getting a good fee for him under the current circumstances with 1yr left on his deal is the hard part. Ultimately we need to find a striker who gets between 12-15 goals a season as that is what we would lose with Britt.    One of the ITK members on here said we are looking at Lyle Taylor who out of contract at end of season. He has 11 goals to his name and has missed a decent chunk of season. Other players include Nakhi Wells who cost Bristol £5m (same fee as we are maybe looking at for Britt) and has 15 goals. Hugill on loan at QPR has 11 goals Woodrow at Barnsely has 14 goals Out of contract Fletcher at Sheff Wed has 13 goals. I am not suggesting we should look at any of them but they have all offered better value for money than britt so getting more bang for your buck than we have from Britt is not hard. Might be for us due to our past incompetent scouting department but some other clubs managed it. Maybe we can this summer...
