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.

Let's not kick up a fuss over nothing.

Let's sign overly expensive players that we can't get rid of...

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.

    • Howson was bloody dreadful against Luton, one of the worst performers. I know he's out of position but he's had much better performances than that at centre-back against forwards who were actually capable of troubling him. I know Woodgate won't drop him but Spence has to play right wing-back for me. I'd probably put Howson into midfield if he's got to be anywhere as I thought Paddy, playing in midfield, was the worst of the worst. My team would perhaps be: Pears Spence Shotton Moukoudi Friend Coulson Saville  Wing Morrison Tav Fletcher
    • I would go with following Pears Shotton Harold Friend Howson Paddy Wing Tav Coulson Britt Fletch Not against Spence but we need to get back to being strong and that back 3 has good experience and 2 out the 3 are naturally centre backs. So hopefully that offers the solidity we need Harsh on Sav but i think we need Tav in team as he carries the ball well from CM towards the strikers. And the link between midfield n forwards of late has been non existent. I deliberated whether to play Ravel or Britt with Fletch. Gone with Britt in hope of extra firepower. I am hoping Tavs inclusion means creativity of Ravel is less needed. Nmecha n Rudy not done much of late. I accept neither has Britt but hoping thats down to him feeling his way back after injury. For all his faults his record in this league is good and i hope he can find the form he showed towards in last 6 games of last season where he went on a run.
    • I’m going to work it out tomorrow! It’s not dead.. 
    • More than anything I hope we win. Not sure of what team he is going to put out or what formation he is going to play and I suppose it doesn't really matter if we get 3 points. It has been a complete waste of a season for me. I can normally see the positives in most things, even Pulis, but we just seem to be drifting into ever increasing mediocrity. 
    • Playoffs here we come 😜
