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?

    • If you are that way inclined, here is a link to this years championship relegation and promotion calculator.  https://thefishy.co.uk/calculator1.php   I’m a glass full type of person, but I can see us falling short in our quest for the playoffs.
    • Not really. Most clubs don't share owners with 5 other teams, we'd be part of the Red Bull franchise. The City Group is worse, because of the disgusting human rights abuses, but even ignoring that I find the idea of people and companies owning multiple clubs very off putting.
    • I don't think a Red Bull takeover would be ruinous for the club: 1. We already play in red and white, so a splash of yellow in our kit isn't going to change it the way a red/white/yellow kit would materially affect Chelsea or West Brom. 2. Red Bull couldn't change our club's name under FA rules. Our history and identity would be protected to a degree, at least. 3.  It's not like they'd have to build a new stadium to enable MFC to flourish. The Riverside is fine. Again, heritage preserved. 4. If they wanted to rename the stadium the Red Bull Riverside, is it really worse than the BT Cellnet Riverside? 5. Our club is sinking into obscurity at present. Red Bull have a proven track record of making clubs successful, and after the last ten years, we could do with their guidance. 6. There are far fewer ethical concerns about being owned by an energy drinks company than by Emiratis, obscure shell corporations or Mike Ashley. Or Karl Oyston. Or Steve Dale. Or anyone else who decides to make Steve Gibson an offer in future. 7. I'd much rather see people walking around Middlesbrough advertising energy drinks on their replica shirts than the assorted pawnbrokers and bookmakers we've been sponsored by since the late Noughties. 8. It does appear Steve Gibson is losing interest in MFC, and his decision making over the last decade has been fairly absymal. Wouldn't it be nice to have a clear identity, a sense of direction, and a long-term plan? Even a Director of Football, for Christ's sake? As for the reactions of other clubs' supporters, (a) IDGAF, and (b) they'd just be jealous. Red Bull are a typically efficient Germanic organisation who have successfully disrupted every industry they've entered. They know what they're doing. Can the same be said for our current owner, who has been trading on past glories for over a decade?
    • Sorry if this has been asked already but is there going to be a match thread for Barnsley game?
