Summer Transfer Window 2018.

Recommended Posts

Gibson hasn’t travelled to Millwall

 

Presumably the lack of mention means Adama has?

 

Pulis confirmed this morning that Adama returned to training today and he's good to go, nothing serious. What a huge boost that would be if he features in some capacity tomorrow.

 

Where did he confirm this.

The pre match press conference this morning.

 

Thats good news then, especially if we manage to hold on to him.

 

I will have to watch the press conference, only read some of the gazettes report so far and it didn't exactly says he was good to go.

BREAKING: Burnley have agreed a fee of £15m with Middlesbrough for Ben Gibson. The Clarets had failed with two previous bids of £12m & £13m over the past 48 hours.

 

From Sky Sports Keith

 

£15M is a bit too cheap, should be between £18M-£20M at least.

 

Why do we keep giving our players away on the cheap, then paying a premium for the one's we bring in.

Another centre half should absolutely not be a priority I assumed Flint was brought into replace Gibson but it’s just taken longer than expected to sell Gibbo.

 

I think a Left wing, left back, striker, right back and centre mid would all be higher on my priority list than another centre half

I mean just because he was running again doesn't mean he's fit to play, I didn't take out of that press conference that he was going to be in the squad, just that he's recovering well (which is no surprise for an athlete like him).

 

Might still be sore and you don't want to rush anyone back. After all, he's no good to anyone if he's injured. It's one of those where if he ended up with a longer term injury then he might as well not be playing for us whether Wolves match the clause or not. I can only see it deterring them if he wouldn't offer anything for them until near enough January and that's no good for us either.

Was thinking the exact same snowblind, but I'm concerned that we haven't been linked with a single right back and that we tried fry and mcnair there in preseason. I think we're sticking with what we have in that position sadly.

 

Aye, 6 days to go... We do know Sam Byram is available, but not sure he's what Pulis would go for. We were linked with Alan Hutton, so you'd hope there'd be more names than just him on the RB list from earlier in the window - but there's always the option for a loan too once the window shuts on Thursday.

 

There's not a lot of talent in the Championship at RB...

Another problem ston season ticket holders view on hugi 'Will give 100 per cent all the time. Leads the line quite well. Finishing a bit hit and miss and doesn't possess a lot of pace. West ham paid us 10 million which was way too much. Not a premier league player in my eyes just an average championship player. But like I said he'll give you all on the pitch'

    • I use to always tease people by claiming that cricket is not a sport. Anything that takes 5 days to end up in a draw can’t possibly be a sport. I once said that to one of the other dads at my boys football match. How was I supposed to know that it was Pete Trego 🤷‍♂️ (True story) 
    • I honestly wouldn't mind trying NML up front, makes very little difference to me. It really can't be worse than having Britt or Akpom up front right now, individually there's not a lot going on without someone actually winning the ball in the air, Akpom and Britt have shown they can't do it. Christ, we'd be better off putting Grant Hall up front in this system than any of those 3.
    • A fter reading through the replies on this thread im still unable to add any half decent suggestions to the questions raisedin the OP. T he main conmclusion going thru my mindis that its thrown up another importantly needed addition in the summer. no-one in the current squad stands out as a serios contender and my personal take on Britt being given it was to try to give him more reason to involve himself in games but it hsnt happened. 
    • Watmore up front for me with Johnson and Kebano out wide. No doubt we will see Britt huffing and puffing until he is taken off for Akpom to replicate the exact same neutered performance. What I would give to see a mean, hungry, angry Striker with a point to prove.  Oh well, keep smiling.
