Summer Transfer Window 2018.

Recommended Posts

It's just a random fan account with just 2,5k followers. Wouldn't worry about it although it's a bit weird that we haven't loaned him yet. Maybe Everton are just waiting to see if there is a European club ready to buy him.

 

I'm willing to bet we're still trying to buy him and thus probably still dealing with his agent's lofty demands.

 

Maybe. I would suggest that the club put out some rumours that we are looking at other targets if his agent is still being a greedy ***. Andy King is someone I'd very much see on loan if Besic is proving difficult.

when asked the other day if we were going to go back in for mo, pulis said something along the lines of "no idea you'd have to ask neil"

 

think that was him just keeping stuff close?

Maybe Besic has told his agent to find him another club.

 

I mentioned to Brunners over the weekend that I was told by someone we actually changed the goalposts in respect of the terms of his contract so that we could facilitate other potential signings. Probably not true but I'll be surprised to see the Besic thing happen now sounds like it's dead in the water.

I don't think we have any need for Besic. We've got Howson, Clayton, McNair, Leadbitter, Wing. It might not be creative enough but let's be honest, neither is Besic, he's a box to box midfielder who likes to run with the ball and get stuck in. He's good, but he's not the missing piece, for me.

 

Far more important that we get some full back cover and a right winger.

True fullback and wingers more important but leadbitter should be nowhere near the first team and wing's form will dip at some point so cover would be good

Agree with you both. More quality in the middle is certainly always welcome for depth but the other areas are more pressing. If there is only room for 3 more players I'd rather it was a full back that can cover both sides like Cuco Martina and two attacking players/wingers.

Sam Byram was a different case with a lack of competition for his signature to take him on loan. West Ham were forced to subsidise his wages to enable his move to Forest to go through. Byram is thought to earn £30,000 per week with Forest picking up around £18,000 per week of that for the season. The Hammers will make up the difference and again the Hammers are hoping he gets a lot of game time to increase his value for a possible sale next Summer.

So this situation is what we are hoping for Bolasie

If Grant goes on loan then we'd need another CM but as Paddy can't break the starting 11 it doesn't seem to me to be that pressing to bring in another CM.

As people have said the wide positions are where we are still lacking, 2 wide players up top and fullback cover would be my immediate concern, after that we can add quality to other positions if it's available.

(Don't believe we moved the goal posts on anybody, what would be the point)

If we get Besic then fair enough, but if we don’t I’m not too bothered. I know a lot of it is luck with injuries etc but currently we have that position covered, we can always revisit it in January if needed.

Whether we think we NEED him or not, it doesn't matter. The manager has sold off his best players, raised money for the club and thinks this is the best way to strengthen. If we lose out on Besic (especially Besic, considering how highly he speaks of him) to rivals, after that awful transfer window, it could be a tipping point for him. I wouldn't blame him if he felt he was being lied to, said *** it and went home to his family.

You are assuming that TP isn't involved in the decision making, which personally i can't see being the case.

    • I'm simply going by the fact that it doesn't seem to mentioned anywhere that they haven't been paid.  The Charlton forums I looked at haven't mentioned it and generally you'd expect to see it there.  It's not like that kind of thing stays secret for very long, and with all of the grief he's getting, it would be reasonable to assume that if he wasn't being paid, that he'd say so to defend himself.  All he's said is that the decision has been a really difficult one for him to make but that his fear of injury is such that he doesn't want to play, and that he knows he'll be seen by some as being greedy.  It's also perhaps worth pointing out that he was missing for two months earlier in the season after being injured playing for Montserrat and I assume he still received his Charlton wages then as well.  All in all, he'll have played about 4 months for Charlton this season but been paid for all 12 months, unless they refuse to pay him this month, which they should.
    • Apart from some unfounded speculation on here I have seen nothing to suggest he hasn’t been paid. Do you know that he hasn’t been paid? If he hasn’t, then I’m surprised he hasn’t just said so, instead of saying he can understand if people think he is a money grabbing player with no loyalty, but hopes that people will forgive him for only thinking about himself.  There is nothing to suggest he hasn’t been happy taking his pay during the last few months without lifting a finger and now he can only think about himself. 
    • Report on Moukoudi which can be filed in the section 'complete bullshit' https://www.hitc.com/en-gb/2020/06/04/report-woodgate-signing-already-facing-middlesbrough-exit-pl-clubs-will-bid-9m/
    • Where is the evidence to prove he has or hasn't getting paid? I haven't personally seen it yet.
    • Aye, it does put it all into perspective when you say it like that 😰
