Summer Transfer Window 2018.

Recommended Posts

As much as I really do want this one to be true, there’s just no way. He played the full 90 minutes in West Ham’s first game of the season. So unless he has fallen out with Pellegrini since then I can’t think of any other reason why they would be willing to let him go out on loan. And if, and it’s a massive if, that has happened then I’m sure Villa, Stoke, Swansea, etc will be ahead of us on the list of clubs that want him on loan.

 

Unfortunately I think it’s either a case of mistaken identity or someone making up a few stories.

Villa - getting Bolasie

 

Stoke - Already have Tom Ince

 

Swansea - whats so great about them?

 

 

After the last game where Antonio wasnt in the match squad Pellegrini said 'now everyone is fit there are some players who wont play'.

Having read down the lads tweets, he seems to be a bit of a wind up. It nearly looks as though he’s made it up just to try and wind a few Villa fans up, saying that we’ve thrown them a dummy with Bolasie to get Antonio under the radar.

Snodgrass was chosen ahead of him, they also have yarmalenko, Anderson, Perez, masuaku and arnautovic who can all play wide. There was a strong suggestion earlier in the summer that Antonio was for sale for 15mil.

 

It's not completely out of the question. Again, not getting my hopes up but there is a chance.

I’m trying to convince myself that it can never ever happen so that I’m not gutted when it doesn’t happen.

 

You aren’t helping Lino...

I'd be absolutely gobsmacked if Bolasie was above Antonio in our list. If he genuinely is there, he must have just become available. Which seems unlikely given West Ham have already used him as a starting member of their team this season and wouldn't be able to replace him in their squad.

 

Would love to be proven wrong so here's hoping but I sincerely can't see it happening.

He’s probably seen VLP and got them mixed up.

 

Noticed the Huddersfield fans are gutted about him going btw

Yeah reading the Huddersfield view on Twitter has altered my view. Haven't seen a single person say they'll be glad to see him go and most are adamant they want him to stay.

yep hes been great for them since he signed. hes not a bad player at all. done well at saints wen they rose up the league to. check that it was brighton he went up with. getting mixed up with that dutch lad they had forget his name now.

 

right third time after checking. hardly played for brighton but his first season at wolves he got 10 assists and 1 goal. that was our promotion season with kranky. must have remembered that.

 

he got 7 of the assists in a purple patch from new year to end of feb. good going that like. hope he can hit form like that for us (if he signs) only 27 to, thought he was older.

 

also his stats might look bad, but consider when he was at wolves they were dog turd and relegated. then when at hudders they are in prem and barely score goals. involved in 107 champo games 5 goals 16 assists, roughly 1 in 5 he gets an assist. not the worst we could do i suppose. but seems to be a decent lad.

If the Antonio thing is true, the club have done well to keep it quiet and then one twitter post like that can alert numerous clubs to players availability, as soon as it catches on. Its nearly impossible to do deals under the radar now.

 

I wouldn't think the Bolasie thing has much to do with it either, looks like Antonio for the right and Bolasie for the left but Bolasie fell through so we're after VLP. (If its true of course).

 

Edit - Just had a thought. Could this be a reason why we werent in for Byram ? If we knew we wanted Hugill, we couldn't have got Byram and Antonio aswell as him, would make sense as to why we never bothered with Byram.

If we got Antonio, targett and vlp in now it would be an unbelievable end to the transfer window. It would make all the pain and near misses worth while and transform us from a side fighting for play offs to a side fighting for autos.

Antonio would be an outrageous signing if we pulled it off but I just do not believe its an option, why would West Ham loan him out? He's a very good player, his only issue is his injury problems. I really can't see him being allowed out on loan, don't West Ham love him?

Fans I’ve spoken to or seen talking about him are very split and some were very happy to sell when Palace showed an interest over the summer but I think that depended on Townsend joining Newcastle.

Antonio isn’t staying at Rockliffe.

 

Very much doubt we have any chance of signing him.

    • We beat forest with pace , effort and will to win tonight . whoever it is would have to be good at those traits . Even Britt can not be critisised tonight , he put a shift in and scored . Would we offer him another contract on lesser terms ? Only Neil will know that . on Grosicki / Bolasie , why sign old , high wage players ?  Massive no .  
    • Delighted with that win. Keeps us in the mix for the playoffs. Oh for two or three quality signings. Bola is unrecognisable. Full credit to him and the coaching team. Howson was at his best tonight. Been a fan of his since watching him at Leeds. Tonight was one of the few times I have watched him and though I remember why I liked you.
    • A thoroughly deserved victory & typical Boro who were cruising had us biting our fingernails for the final few minutes We should have been 4 goals clear & here we were hanging on But we came through & winning at a team on 7 games unbeaten run, apart from the final 3 minutes, quite comfortably  Well done Boro & NW
    • Thats kind of what I meant. They had a lot of possession and passed it around quite nicely, but without really troubling us defensively. Whereas we had to chase a lot, but when we did counter we looked pacey and dangerous.  
    • Don't think they played the better football really, by and large they played the football we let them play, in front of us and horizontally. We didn't let them threaten at all, which is what we set up to do, they can have as much of the ball as they want in their own half! Thought we were excellent today! Howson MOTM, Tav 2nd place and probably Bola in 3rd, thought he was quality defensively again. Special shout out to Britt too, one of his best games ever for us. Also I see Forest fans calling the red card soft but IMO he should have been off for the Stamp seconds before anyway so it evens out. Think they got very lucky card wise, you could argue Ribeiro should have already been off & Knockaert could have had 2 yellows in 2 seconds with his stunt at the end.
