Summer Transfer Window 2018.

Recommended Posts

Well I think this next week is going to be one of the busiest on here with incomings, but more intriguingly outgoings. Pulis keeps stating he wants 18 senior pros and 4 young lads. If we are after another 6 incomings surely we would need to shift 5 or 6 not including Gibson and Traore. I am guessing Britt, Braithwaite and Grant but who else may be off. Cant see Clayton going but maybe Howson. I think we are going to have an exciting season with a much changed squad

So we've got Gibson and Traore set to leave, Ayala on long-term sick and a group of 4 strikers who Pulis doesn't rate.

 

Out of those strikers Braithwaite doesn't want to be here, we massively overpaid for Britt and Fletcher so we'll lose money on them when we eventually get rid and Gestede is completely useless.

 

We've still got no creativity in the squad and the likes of Downing, Friend and Leadbitter are on big wages while not being good enough anymore.

 

Those who think we'll be chasing promotion might need to readjust their expectations, this feels like a 12 month rebuilding job and Pulis has 24 hours to try and do it.

This feels like 1986 all over again

If Gibbo goes who gets the captaincy? Friend might lose his place if we sign Bryan.

 

It's going to be Downing isn't it ..................

I would give it to Clayton, if he is in the team

Confession to make, I thought the window closed today, that's why a few of my posts probably sound like I'm overreacting a bit! Ha ha

Hmmm maybe the tweet that I have just seen is wrong...

West London Sport reporting that sources have said QPR will sell Freeman if the price is right and Boro are in talks with QPR. Sounds like that could be one to watch out for.

Presumably the lack of mention means Adama has?

It's from our old friend pink ponce, if I'm right to say. Tends to keep his knowledge to himself these days but always seemed pretty well placed.

    • I think Hugill was all too often on the ground and I couldn't stand that in a big physical lad, more-so than the regular diving player... but I also think he'd have scored more goals under Woodgate than he did Pulis. Though you could probably apply that to a lot of strikers.
    • I disagree. Replacing Britt is not the hard part imo. Getting a good fee for him under the current circumstances with 1yr left on his deal is the hard part. Ultimately we need to find a striker who gets between 12-15 goals a season as that is what we would lose with Britt.    One of the ITK members on here said we are looking at Lyle Taylor who out of contract at end of season. He has 11 goals to his name and has missed a decent chunk of season. Other players include Nakhi Wells who cost Bristol £5m (same fee as we are maybe looking at for Britt) and has 15 goals. Hugill on loan at QPR has 11 goals Woodrow at Barnsely has 14 goals Out of contract Fletcher at Sheff Wed has 13 goals. I am not suggesting we should look at any of them but they have all offered better value for money than britt so getting more bang for your buck than we have from Britt is not hard. Might be for us due to our past incompetent scouting department but some other clubs managed it. Maybe we can this summer...
    • Played as a striker he was a immense. A proper poacher and could shoot from distance too.
