Summer Transfer Window 2018.

Recommended Posts

I'm still confident on getting a couple of the below,

Bolasie

Ojo

Martina

Byram

Kalas

Martina

But just not today.

 

Today is about getting permanents over the line I reckon,

Besic

Freeman

Wallace

 

I was hoping for Sergi Canos, but not a peep on that front.

Yeah I'm getting nervous. We started the summer needing two wingers and we haven't got any in and have lost another. The lack of creativity from wide could be the difference between promotion or mid table

The deadline is looming, anyone else getting nervous?

 

Our permanent targets appear to be Besic, Freeman, Wallace

 

Besic seems to be close to being done. The others are the ones I’m nervous about. QPR again said Freeman not going so I’d be surprised if that does happen (hope it does though) Wallace hasn’t really been mentioned other than Mirror this morning so don’t know if that’s going anywhere.

 

I think we’re working on someone other than Bolasie, hoping for a surprise

Very quiet on the Adomah front. Anyone know anything?

 

The last I heard was a few weeks ago when he mentioned to a member of the Villa coaching staff that if he moved he would like to move back down South

I reckon if we pull Freeman, Martina and Besic off we're two senior wingers short left and right given our first choice is Bolasie at 15 million it'll be a hard one to take if we end up with none but we'll see what happens.

Nah We are going to “set piece” our way to the top, if it’s good enough for England!

I just popped in to talk about Martina... Now my best mate is an Everton fan, in fact 4 of my close mates are, so I end up seeing plenty of them.

 

My mate describes Martina as the worst professional footballer he's ever seen and can't stop laughing that we're looking at him. I've seen a fair bit of him and honestly, he absolutely appalling. I have no idea what we see in him, he genuinely is terrible. You know that saying "he's got two left feet", Cuco plays like he's got buckets at the end of his legs.

 

Having said all that; Freeman, Besic, Bolasie and Wallace would be really good additions, so you take the rough with the smooth I guess! If Bolasie can get near his pre-injury form he'll tear it apart, and I don't think anyone needs me to tell them about the other three. Really happy if we can get those over the line.

 

what would your everton fan mates make of shotton playing right back for them. just to gauge the comparison :D

 

 to be fair the everton fans probably still think they should be a champions league team. they have always overestimated their stature. guess its a liverpool shadow thing, like the mackems always being in jawdees shadow so they try to overcompensate by bigging it up.

 

Haha there's definitely an element of that with them, I see that a lot, especially when they were talking about trying to get Ancelotti in as manager.... BUT! On this occasion, I can verify that he is in fact that bad. As I say, I unfortunately end up watching a lot of Everton and he is bloody hopeless! Conversely, he's not over the moon abut selling Besic as he really rates him.

 

MAYBE NOT GET TO EXCITED ABOUT THIS ONE THEN LOL. did he struggle at the bigger club and that ruin his confidence? like when we have signed players not quite as good as we have and they sort of realize it and a resigned to that fact they are not good enough. like guerdiora et al. but maybe we will get more from him.

Not nervous. I was resigned to us signing no one permanently and bringing in a few loans. Anything more is a bonus.

 

The only nerves I have is about buying rubbish/panic buys. Hopefully not though.

 

In six months time though how many of these potential signings will we be talking about as last minute buys that have failed.

 

Sorry for the pessimism, but from here I can only be surprised in a good way :D

Last time Freeman was on set pieces and Flint in the box he got Flint 15 goals in League 1 I know Wing's corners were good but every ***house team needs a set piece specialist et voilà we'll have Freeman.

Didn't someone used to update the front page with the ins, outs and rumours? Rather than 23 people posting the same thing in a different order? :)

 

Would still happen!

Martina is definitely fit for purpose at Championship level. He didn't look out of place at Southampton, Would say he's lower prem team standard.

 

Everton fans just hate most of the players that came in under Koeman because of that awful Transfer window and season. All football fans are guilty of the same thing, once someone is perceived as bad, they are bad for life and every little mistake they make will be pointed out.

He came from Southampton with Koeman, before that he was in Holland. You might be right that we can get more out of him, but I wouldn't get excited! Tony will have to use whatever voodoo magic he was sprinkling on Adama! :D

Everton fans also say Besic is *** so maybe it’s time we stopped listening to them, they are clearly a pack of doyles

    • Still depends on what you're looking for. I'd say some of the bigger ones include: World of Warcraft Guild Wars 2 The Elder Scrolls Online Final Fantasy XIV EVE Online Runescape Black Desert Online. There's a new one coming in early 2021 that looks quite interesting called New World.  
    • i said it last season, the kids will keep improving and be even better as time goes on. thats what we see now. some of the football today was nice and need fast football. players involved were the young lads and bola. they know eachothers game they are pretty familiar and now the confidence is coming for them we are seeing them express themselves. the shackles are coming off and the young lads are starting to show us what they can do. give it a few months if this form keeps up these kids will be flyin and the goals will be flowing. lot more to come from us yet. well done NW you can see they all love him he's like a grandad figure to them never mind a father figure. he'll give them the love and build their confidence and we'll keep seeing the results of that in their performances, UTB.
    • NW says he has been training at Rockcliffe for the last couple of weeks so his knee must be ok now. NW wants to get him so who would argue with his judgement? Not me.
    • I can't believe it was 5 years ago when I posted this.  Are there any good new ones out that people know about?
    • Yeah I thought he had a bit of promise a few years back.  Terrible luck with the injuries, like a few of our lot a while back - McMahon and Bates in particular.
