Summer Transfer Window 2018.

Pretty much, I could get on board with Hugill to a extent although I don't think either are anywhere near a upgrade on Britt.

If hes signing Waghorn for the left then I just don't know what to say.

One or the other id have thought, for all Waghorn had a good season last year I'd personally prefer Hugill, marginally quicker and will have potential for at least breaking even if we chose to sell, no chance with Waghorn unless he bangs in 25 next season at his age.

Most of the questions put to him were good, however there was one bloke who said "I didn't want you here to start with, and I don't want you here now" 

 

I thought Tudders had gone quiet on here for a bit.

 

Hahaha. Not likely to get me in the same room as that fella. Though love the answer about only wanting players who want to be here given what someone (rafsmog possibly) said about him not wanting to be here after next season. A little hypocritical I'd say.

He kept highlighting the importance of having players here who want to be here, and said he'd done his research and noticed we've signed lots of players in the past who aren't from the area, and don't want to stay here long-term. He said he wants players with character who actually want to be here long-term. Also said he'd like players here who are from the North-East, which makes me think he was hinting towards Waghorn possibly signing.

 

 

So Waghorn and Hugill then?

 

Hopefully Raf can confirm or deny... 5mil bid for him rising to 7m if promoted was what I was just told but I personally can’t see Wham accepting it...

Maybe after the favour we did them with Fletcher they could just help us out with this one  :D

West ham reportedly in for 4 Portuguese players. Suggests to me that players are on their way out. I'm not a hugill fan but id rather him than waghorn

Well with all of the money they are splashing out they might be happy to get something back in for a player they presumably don't want.  I wonder why they signed him in the first place though.

To be fair I think we'd be doing them another favour. They think hes an absolute joke of a player from what I've read. Nowhere near prem standard.

He gave Gibbo and Ayala the run around last season when he was at Preston especially at the Riverside

I would take everything a West ham fan says with a pinch of salt, they are an absolutely disgusting horrendous club, oh and he's played 22 minutes in the premier league.

We definitely bid 2m loan fee for Hugill. Not sure if that’s changed to a permanent if he’s coming

To be fair we were bloody awful that day all across the park and Ayala didn't play.  That was the game we played a weird sort of three at the back I think with Friend alongside Gibson and Fry?  God knows what Monk was doing  :funny:

I notice Sam Byram still hasn't moved anywhere and is miles down the pecking order, not originally from up here but did spend a ton of time at Leeds if Pulis is only signing northern lads.

Would probably only happen if Traore left and we needed a fullback who could play football.

    • This is what I would want to see. More of a 3-5-2 which has worked for us at times this season. I feel like we need Howson in midfield as our midfielders are just useless and lack any leadership, he can at least make a tackle. Saville to start if we want more balance or Tav if we wanna go for it. Roberts behind the striker and just let him run at them on the counter attack, maybe him and Britt could get something going. Let Spence and Coulson offer our pace and width as wingsback.                                          Stojanovic    Spence - Fry - Moukoudi - Friend/Shotton - Coulson                          Howson - McNair - Saville/Tav                                       Roberts                                               Britt/Fletch                             Not that it matters like, don't have much hope for this game.
    • Half-way through Mad Men and just started series 5 of The Bureau, both excellent. 
    • Warnock's had a good shuffle of the pack now. That's the desperate hope that his selections will finally click and maybe lady luck will smile on us too.

    • At this point I'd usually go check out how Millwall were doing and figure out how we could beat them. But whilst Stoke wasn't exactly a masterclass, the last two games in particular have left me bereft of confidence in this side. This squad isn't built out of League One quality players and yet the lack of quality coming from players at the moment makes it look like they are. Our passing and movement is so key to the way Warnock wants us to play but I just don't think anyone is really tackling this task together right now. We see some individual quality on display, particularly from Roberts and Britt at times in the last few games, but it's just not coming together as a unit. The final ball or decision is made too late, too strong or too weak. I agree with some others that I don't think that effort is necessarily the issue... it's just quality when and where it matters. We don't have a single player in the squad right now who's capable of planting a ball on a player's noggin on a consistent basis from a dead ball, never mind when in the flow of play. Still, the team? Hopefully Spence is back... this is what comes to mind. Stojanovic Spence Fry Friend Coulson Tav Howson Saville Roberts Fletcher Britt
