Summer Transfer Window 2018.

Recommended Posts

TP: Adama was my best buddy. At the beginning he looked a bit sullen, at the end he was bright. I hope the fans realise the want to play in the PL @ the top level. I don’t know if it’s a done deal, I’ve just come out of the dressing room.

If we’re now playing wing backs, why oh why did we sell Christie! We can’t have Shotton playing right wing back surely

What did he say about Braithwaite? Someone elsewhere suggested as though it sounds like he will be going as well.

The only thing I've seen so far is:

 

TP: Martin has done well, Britt did well for an hour - tired toward the end. But to pick one would be unfair.

I think we just played 3-5-2 in that game to match up against Sheffield United. Nullifies them well because we had a more talented player in every position.

He basically repeated his "you have to want to be here" speech when asked about Braithwaite on bbctees.

Precisely. We did the exact same in the 2nd half at Bramall Lane last season and pretty much dominated them after a shocking first half. He adapted us into a formation that suited playing against them and he even changed us back by the 2nd half when Woodburn came on. They lost their shape so we went back to something we knew and understood better. Then we were pretty much playing 5-4-1 at the end.

I'm more confused after reading all his comments than I was before he talked to Gibson which is good but I mean we're at Tuesday we've known the state of play on Adama, Gibson and Waghorn since Saturday not sure what's meant to have happened in between. It just feels like given the choice between us who have George Friend in the team and Villa who have Neil Taylor if I was Joe Bryan I'd probably choose Villa just because I can see an easier path into the team.

 

I think we need 3 permanents by Thursday and if we're going to throw around Braithwaite still leaving then the loan market talk rings a little hollow I mean we'd be fighting half the league for the same loan targets from the Prem I don't see how we can fill all of our gaps with loans unless we make 3-4 permanent signings of top end targets we'll see.

Sounds like Braithwaite wants away still.

No Championship fixtures until Saturday now so we should start seeing some real action tomorrow

So this is what he says about Braithwaite

 

"Everyone wanted Adama to stay. Everyone wanted Gibbo to stay. Everyone wanted Patrick to stay. But that's not the world today that we live in. You know, if the lads are offered stuff and they wanna go, it's very, very difficult to stop them."

The presser has just gone up. 2 things of note, first that someone asked about Braithwaite's future and Pulis responded saying something along the lines of:

 

"Everyone wanted Adama to stay, everybody wanted Gibbo to stay, everybody wanted Bamford to stay... but players get offered things and they might want to take up those options"

 

The other thing of note, I detected a certain Phil Tallentire in the audience, his very distinctive tone... are the Gazette allowed back in altogether? Or are they just choosing to send Phil and Vickers now and leave Dom out of it?

What’s he trying to say? That if a good offer comes along Braithwaite wants to move and we can’t stop him? I suppose that’s the reality of being a championship team and not a top division team.

I dont think the Gazette were ever banned, just those 2 individual ones so the whole gazette decided to do a boycoutt or whatever.

    • 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.
