Summer Transfer Window 2018.

Recommended Posts

pog was pretty average i recall. a poor left back but okay cb. always had a mistake in him with reckless challenges.

 

I won't hear any besmirching of Mad Dog, take that back!

 

He's literally bled for this team!

I was joking because it's Foogle's picture.

 

But this led me to think, who would win in a fight between Pogatetz and Besic?

Haha, I can't see profile pics as I always visit this site on my phone!

 

Pog would murder Besic.

Or it’s possible besic will be taking claytons spot and saville would challenge wing.

 

Are we just pretending we didn't sign McNair then?

It's a long season and I expect we'll be almost 2 different midfield rotations at times

A few Millwall people on Twitter are talking about Saville as though he's definitely coming here. Really weird that all the info is leaking from the selling club. And even weirder that we're apparently signing someone in a position where we're well stocked.

Have to assume either McNair is going to be used as a defender, or at least two of De Sart, Leadbitter and Clayton are off.

Saville has played a few positions, but has been a CM/DM for 90% of the games he's played, so I can't see him being brought in to play anywhere else.

Maybe they're leaking a fake 7m transfer knowing that it's going to guarantee a 7.1m bid from Villa

DM? hasn't Saville been more of an attacking midfielder for Millwall?

This is a weird one automatically you'd think no chance then you look into it a bit you see the Southwark paper guy saying Saville's unlikely to be involved at the weekend and Millwall are chasing loan to buy deals for 2 midfielders from League 1. Financially for them if we are willing to match the 7/8 they want they'd probably sell him, rumours the players head was turned in the last few days of the window with the money being talked about I think the talk is he's on 15k we'd probably table north of 20k maybe 25k a week for him and the chance to go up.

 

I think Millwall fans have decent reasons to be concerned the fact their local journo said Saville won't be involved at the weekend coupled with the rumoured interest in the League 1 mids and I don't know maybe there's some fire to this smoke.

 

Makes 0 sense to me unless we view Saville as an alternative to the Luke Freeman signing as a advanced CM I know the guy has a deadly touch around the box but I thought that's what McNair was for...

Saville is left footed and got good delivery. I saw that when at Wolves he had also covered at Left Back so may kill more than one bird etc

He did also go off injured at about 60 minutes in on their last game, so this may account for him not featuring this weekend!

He’s more of an attack minded midfielder, McNair can play in several positions, a handy guy to have in the squad. I can’t see De Sart staying, he’s not featured at all, Leadbitter wages are too high for another club to loan him, unless the club contribute.

 

I would say that if Saville came in, it would probably mean that Braithwaite is on his way out.

 

If Pulis gets the players he wants, I can seeJohnson, De Sart and Braithwaite being the 3 to leave.

A!ways thought of McNair as a box to box CM arriving late in the box, didn't look comfortable with his back to goal apparently.

 

McNair/Howson

Clayton/Besic

Wing/Saville

    • I've noticed a lot of online users have signed on this week, so for you this is the history of Magic Lamp.   Little of the history of Magic Lamp has ever been published, but after helping Huddersfield to their only FA Cup win in 1922 Magic lamp disappeared for nearly forty years resurfacing in the mid sixties, found in an attic of a pawn dealer in Dagenham by a schoolboy friend of Alf Ramsey. After a bit of research he found that this indeed was the Lamp that helped Huddersfield  win the FA Cup and as a bit of joke passed the lamp onto Alf for good luck with The World Cup about to start.   Of course England went on to win, however, what wasn't known was that there was a dressing room ritual with the Magic Lamp never before published that will astound the public. In some recently discovered papers, an unpublished interview with Alf Ramsey penned by Cassandra of the Daily Mirror, which were overlooked upon his premature death in 1967, that only now can the contents be revealed.   Cassandra writes, Jimmy Greaves tipped me off about this strange ritual, intrigued I sought out Alf and he granted me an interview at his modest Ipswich bungalow and said it all started off as a bit of a joke, but it was really to take the pressure off the team and footballers being a superstitious mix embraced it. By the time we got to the Argentina match the players were starting to believe in it. Greaves was injured and refused to rub Magic lamp, I had a decision to make and brought in Hurst to the fold. Magic Lamp came to the fore that day causing Rattin to speak incomprehensible nonsense to the referee and got himself sent off, them Geoff scored a marvellous goal. By the time the final came Greavsie was fit, the press were clamouring for his return and I had a decision to make. I said to Jimmy are you a believer and he replied no and then picked up the lamp and hurled it at the dressing room wall, shouting I'm the star of this fecking team not some Magic Lamp. By good fortune Gordon (Banks) was stood at the wall talking to George Cohen and he instinctively caught Magic Lamp saving irreparable damage So my mind was made up, an unchanged team and the rest is history. As the full time time whistle blew Magic Lamp said to me, you've already won it once, tell them to go out and win it again.   There was great celebrating in the dressing room afterwards and the players said the only thing better than drinking champagne out of The World Cup, was sipping it from the delicate lips of Magic Lamp.   Alf said he wanted to take Magic Lamp to Mexico. Magic Lamp declined the offer saying he needed at least another forty year rest before exerting himself again.   Cassandra. Thank you Alf. The nation indeed owes a debt of gratitude to Magic Lamp...                                              
    • We didn’t even talk to Viduka about a new contract until it was too late. If it’s happened to Downing and Schwarzer, it probably happened to Viduka as well.
    • Wonder if Assombalonga plays this as he has a epic record against Birmingham. Also they is doubt about Watmore starting after today comments from Warnock about him suffering Covid the worst. Everything in the form book points to a easy Boro home win but this is football and we could have a typical Boro moment of Clayton or Friend scoring a hatrick 😂
