Summer Transfer Window 2018.

Recommended Posts

If you throw him in with the other targets Ojo/Targett/Puncheon/Besic/La Parra it doesn't look too bad a lineup of targets, I think he does the job Pulis wants from a winger he's a direct runner who works hard had a full pre season he's not too bad as a replacement to be honest I always felt like he's had the potential to do more with his talent maybe Pulis can unlock that in him.

 

If you take Van La Parra out of that list it looks even better. He's garbage.

That's a goal contribution almost every 9 games on average...

 

His record is poor.

 

I hope there is someone a bit better than that available

 

On the flipside, played 40 games for a promoted team, so must have been doing something right.

 

bit of trivia....he is the brother of Wijnaldum at Liverpool.....does that improve him any  :cheese:

La Parra played 33 premier league games last year for a team that comfortably stayed up so can't be too bad. At least he's not a permacrock or in the reserves somewhere - could be a handy addition to the squad and leaves budget for others too.

One down, 4 more to go

 

It's actually 2 and 5, because Besic and Hugill will both be in our matchday squad.

More likely three more, as we have 2 on Loan already. Looks like it’s a loan deal rather than loan to buy.

 

Good to have him back.

La Parra covers both wings, splits Huddersfield fans opinion and always seems capable of doing more... He's going to be Adomah v2.0 isn't he?

Nice to have him back, a tremendous player in this league, I bet Clayton is not very happy though as it will probably his place he will be taking. Please width and full backs now.

    • Merson, Gazza, Maradona and Best had their demons but were brilliant players. Jones is immature and has little natural talent to compensate for his indiscretions. Not much correlation between him and the others, IMO, and very little reason for us to spend money we don't appear to have on him.
    • He was banned from driving after a dangerous piece of driving around Glasgow which showed his decision making isn't particularly clever not to mention being irresponsible and selfish with scant regard to others. Thankfully he didn't kill anyone like others in the profession before him have. It's sad that the likes of Merson, Gazza, Maradona and Best etc. all had their demons but were still able to perform and function, the majority crash and burn, destroying their careers in the process.
    • Until we realise whatever another club is prepared to pay for them we can only estimate what we think their value is worth. McNair wasn't cheap and until this season he looked just about OK for the money we spent. We spent a million pounds Goalkeeper now out on loan replacing him with a nomad in footballing terms (Stoj is still on the books but not in the squad). Then there was the ridiculous fee paid for Saville (not his fault nor Britt's come to that). If you think that the squad isn't decreasing in value then you are entitled to your opinion but I only see a downwards trend. The sale of Bamford probably was the defining reality from which we haven't altered direction then we have Randolph's replacement who wasn't to the same monetary value (or ability). Without doubt we have some good prospects but that doesn't alter that we are now trying to buy cheap and sell high as oppose to years of buying high and selling low. I haven't a problem with following that business model, it's how we existed for decades before SG arrived, selling the likes of Souness, Mills, Johnson and later on Pallister etc. but to me the value trend of our squad is a diminishing one.
    • He was banned for 7 matches after attending a party, he's not even made the bench since. Before that he'd finally got back in to the side and scored. He's burned his bridges, but it's not just down to ability. Funny thing is, dozens of players have done the same thing in the top flight in England and gotten away with it without punishment.
    • I don't think Jones has the ability at this level so I wouldn't want to bring him back. Then the off field issues that led to him leaving Boro in the first place don't seem to have improved any at Rangers. We have had some of the best from the Old Firm that seriously struggled down here before in the Championship. That he can't even force his way into Gerrard's thinking tells me where his future level is.
