Summer Transfer Window 2018.

Recommended Posts

Vokes and Phillips for Britt and Braihwaite would make us stronger. But only because Pulis is the manager because I would much rather have our two current players. If that makes sense.

 

Reading some of the reports about the swap deal it could sound like WBA are quite interested in Britt so maybe we could even squeeze out some money plus Phillips.

 

It does make sense and I completely agree

I think Vokes is probably a better player all round, but is definitely a lot better for Pulis. Phillips is a quality winger at this level and takes oppositions sole attention away from Adama. Never saw anything concrete from Braithwaite to suggest he’d pull up any trees in this league so not bothered about him leaving.

Why on earth are we planning on bringing in more midfielders?? Winger is what we need not central midfielders...

 

Howson, Clayton, Leadbitter, McNair (can play there), Downing, De Sart.

I would like us for go for Besic if we do intend to get another midfielder..

 

for the rest of the team I would be happy to keep - maybe another keeper as Dimi is now getting old...

 

Buying a midfielder doesn't mean we aren't looking at wingers. And IMO none of Leadbitter, Downing or De Sart are up-to to playing a starting role in a promotion push.

 

I think we expected to see more movement outwards (Gibson, Braithwaite, Adama) and none of that's happened, so we're frozen and might have to resort to giving Britt away for Phillips to get things moving.

I'd take a straight swap, Phillips for Assombalonga.

 

A quality left winger will mean the difference between aiming for top two and scrapping for top 6, I'm sure of it.

 

Assombalonga may be 'worth' more than Phillips, but who is going to value Assombalonga at £15M other than us? Plus, Phillips is worth more to us as a team than Assombalonga. Bamford proved he can do just as good a job, if not better.

 

The issue with swap deals is agents. Agents want all kinds of payments relating to the transfer fee. The deal would have to be worked in a more sophisticated way than a swap. It could take an age to negotiate with two sets of clubs/players/agents involved.

 

If we did get Phillips, I'd be massively excited for the season ahead.

bet ffp has a lot to do with swap deals. A nice £15m on the income side and £5m down payment on the out going side will let accountants do a bit of sugar coating.

That £5m down payment would also be amortised over the length of the contract, so probably only £1m per year to the accounts.

See Derby have loaned Harry Wilson. Could be a very good loan for them if he can continue his form from last season.

Meh. Another young player that’s done well in Holland. Not really a sign of anything.

Can you get loan players in? Also domestic? I thought all incomings had to be done.

I read somewhere that EFL clubs would be allowed to sign players on loan or loan with a view to permanent right up until August 31st. Can't help but feel bringing the window forward is the wrong decision. A lot of clubs still have a lot of transfer business to do yet; could be a manic last few weeks of the window.

Will put English buying clubs under pressure, say we were after Besic and put in a fairly low offer because they're looking to offload and it's close to the windows end. Everton could hold off trying to get a better deal abroad...

 

Could also see a team like Chelsea in the muck if they're forced to sell Courtois/Hazard after the window closes without being able to get a replacement. Is it just English clubs that have agreed to this change?

    • I’m sure that it was a club decision, that makes it seem even dafter. There are factions in dressing rooms at every club, that’s just human nature, you get on with the people that you have most in common with.    Anyway, it really didn’t work did it?
    • I honestly think the main goal is too become self sufficient... of course promotion but I think the days of Gibson spending exuberant amounts of ££ are long gone.. short term aim is to ensure we are in this league next season whilst continuing to reduce the wage bill. Medium Term Aim is to create an team of youngsters with a spine of experience and hope we can improve as a team. Do I think SG has lost interest... No is my honest opinion... have we made awful decisions... yes without doubt.. allowing Bevington to take control of transfers in the summer was by far our worse move... set us back more than  just Woody. Was woody on a hiding to nothing... Yes he is a local lad being hung out to dry , I know we all criticise him etc but how many of you would of taken the job of managing your home town club.. no brainer for him , only a tenth of what Jokanovic plus his staff wanted. Really wish we got a DoF in place and was told that's what Woody wanted as well. With regards to the PR the club are spouting that's just Natural. Season ticket sales etc are the main aim now. We dont sell many then the club can say we didnt have the funds to sign anyone in summer.  Am I confident in Woody... not really , would I love to see him succeed? Without a doubt. He needs to find a settled 11 for the remainder of the season and stick with it though. Only way we grind it out in my opinion.
    • A Barnsley v Boro (Fletcher) H Birmingham v Sheff Wed A Bristol City v WBA  H Charlton v Luton D Leeds v Reading H Forest v QPR H PNE v Hull D Stoke v Cardiff H Swansea v Huddersfield H Wigan v Millwall
    • Perhaps those on the side line DS have got fed up of banging their heads against a brick wall and are just waiting for the International break and hoping we will have seen the last of Woodgate. Has for the team that was out there Saturday I really do not believe they thought Luton a walkover , but what I do believe is that they did nothing to help the situation.Watching Woodgate time and again look to the skies and say f**king hell to him upstairs proved to me the team where not doing what he may have planned and in which case like I said Saturday I think he has lost the dressing room. Also that speech at the end of the game did not go down well I bet and I also think Gibson will look on that as a final straw once the manager starts looking for scrape goats to blame for his mistakes there is no way back in my book. Why he never changed a thing at half time was rather baffling we were only a goal behind and when that team plays together they can easily get that goal plus more against weak teams like Luton.
    • From what I've heard the 'no foreigner' policy was a club decision rather than a Monk decision.  During the Premier league season there was apparently a divided dressing room between the English and Spanish speaking players. I think there was a desire to prevent that happening again.
