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.

    • Sorry but this is such a naive perspective, BD. There is literally no one on this planet who has the authority to say that this virus is not dangerous in circumstances that literally involves close contact with other human beings. Nobody knows of a way to absolutely 100% not transmit the virus other than to literally not be next to people when you have it. Generally speaking, you have a point, I get that we can't just hide away in our homes forever. But the idea that there are circumstances in which people can be in physical contact with each other as they used to be and still be 100% safe really undermines where you're going with this. There are varying rates of risk and we can't move forward until everyone acknowledges that.
    • My hope is relegated clubs/those aiming for promotion might see Britt as a cheaper alternative to the other prolific strikers in this league. Dont want to start a debate on whether Britt is prolific but hope fellow board members get point am trying to make? He is viewed as one of the more established leading forwards at this level given he virtually guarantees you double figures each season at this level (bar this one) I imagine any offer of approx £4m+ gets you Britt..
    • I reckon the championship restart be a week later but the fixture schedule is gonna be ridiculous!
    • Or maybe there won’t be one. We can’t keep everything under lockdown until the virus is completely gone or there is a 100% cure. Obviously money is a question because a lot of jobs depend on the football industry but the professional sport itself is a very safe environment for everyone that’s in it.  The governments around Europe are simply starting various businesses up that is deemed safe and professional football behind closed doors isn’t dangerous in any way. 
    • I suspect much of  the league is going to be in a similar position. We're quite lucky to have so many players running out of contract just as this economic crash is coming. I can see most of the league desperately trying to cut their wage bills.  Biggest downside is no one will be willing to spend money on Britt.
