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.

    • 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?
