Summer Transfer Window 2018.

Recommended Posts

Stoke are about to loan Ashley Williams from Everton. Can’t say I’m bothered about that as I never really rated him. But Everton will be needing a defender quick and their pursuit of Mina has gone dead.

Hoping there will be some movement today.

 

Those 2 signings that RAF mentioned - hopefully they are going to be the much needed players for problem positions.

It'll be Hugill and Waghorn

I thought that initially but then because Pulis mentioned Besic by name i thought maybe it would be him.

 

I really want Joe Bryan now having watched a lot of highlights on him over the summer

We seem to have a 'theme' every transfer window, then throw it out and start again.

 

Let's sign old players...

Let's sign Scottish players...

Let's sign Spanish players...

Let's sign injured players...

Let's sign young English players...

Let's sign tall players...

Let's sign players from the North East...

 

Have I missed any?

The question is "what are the problem positions?" I think I know where they are and most fans do too but are they the areas tp thinks need looking at?

 

Most of us want a new pacey left winger. However, maybe downing is nailed on as a starter in tp's mind. Maybe the winger he is potentially looking at is replacement for Adama to play opposite downing. He did say he wants players from the north east.

 

We all seem to want a left back but I can't see George not being picked. If anything he is loyal and tp seems to reward loyalty.

 

A lot of fans think creativity through the centre needs attention but again tp seems happy with Clayton, howson and mcnair so maybe that's not a problem area in his head.

 

I can see us buying another striker that 'Can' play on the wing and potentially a winger to replace adama.

Maybe we've received a sensible bid for Ripley (or in some way, his departure is expected) and are just signing someone on a free to cover for his departure. Makes sense to me. Gives us a bit extra in the kitty and whilst it's sad to see him not make his name here, he can't even get in ahead of Dimi in the pecking order so it doesn't say much for him.

I’m assuming Ripley will be going out on loan again then. I sort of wanted to see Ripley be our back up keeper this year but it is probably better for him going out on loan and getting game time rather than sitting on our bench behind Randolph all season.

    • Businesses should be means tested much like people are for social welfare. There is no way bajillionaires like Branson should get away with furloughing staff, neither should businesses with 100's of millions of pounds income per year. 
    • Liverpool have reversed the decision now. Rightly so, in my opinion. 
    • I don’t think it’s down to the working class nature of football, boxers don’t get the same flack, I think it’s because clubs are very often the heart of a community. I remember chatting to a woman I met a few years ago who wouldn’t let her kids watch football because footballers were payed an obscene amount of money. I asked her if she allowed her kids to watch Hollywood movies, of course, she said!  
    • Wherever you stand on it... Footballers do always seem to be fair game when it comes to having a pop at the rich. Is it the working class nature of football? I've always wondered.  Where are the calls for musicians, actors, or even athletes from other well-paid sports to give up their earnings for the less fortunate? Or the bankers and CEOs who squirrel millions away into offshore accounts, taking from society and never giving back? At least footballers bring a bit of joy and entertainment to millions of people a couple of times a week. 
    • Yep, its a real sob story.  But in normal life, imagine if you could live comfortably on 10% of your takehome after buying your house and car. You would only have day to day expenses, holidays, etc. You take the rest of your salary and put it in one of those long term savings accounts (or whatever) that you cannot touch for 2 years. Then your salary is reduced and that 10% is no longer enough to cover your day to day. Regardless of how much actual money that is, when you try to force people to change their living circumstances you will always have push-back.  Now of course nobody earning decent money should be in that situation. It is recommended to split your savings, some in short term (easily retrieved), some in medium term (normally a wait period to retrieve) and some in long term (not normally retrievable) eg Property and pension.  On one hand it does highlight that these are just people, like all of us. On the other hand, they are fabulously wealthy and a target for those less well off who are revered when times are good and reviled when times are bad.  I don't blame the players for earning what they do, you make hay while the sun shines and we would all probably try to earn the same if circumstances were different. The clubs though are a different story and should be looking after the non mega-rich employees.
