Summer Transfer Window 2018.

Recommended Posts

Is it just me or are other members on here feeling sorry for Lewis Wing. After a solid pre season he made his breakthrough and gave us something we have been lacking for a long time, forward thinking passing. He then has a couple of man of the match awards and is now dropped and pushed down to about fourth choice  If I was him my transfer request would be signed and delivered, no wonder young talent go nowhere.

 

Not at all, that’s football, he would never have expected to be in the first team, he took his chance, played well, he was only left out against WBA because we changed the team shape and bought in an extra CB. If he hands in a transfer request 3 days before the end of the LOAN window because he’s only played 3 and a bit games out of 5, so far he would be a very unstable and unsavoury character indeed.

I reckon you could be appearing on that Twitter account soon with stuff like this

I mentioned previously that I thought him being left out was wrong and he offered us something more progressive. Also said that my guess was we would see cameos from him at best from now on which is a huge shame (and a step backwards imo). I could be wrong though (maybe he will be back in the team next game).

 

I wouldn't go overboard at the minute with regards to transfer requests however. He has only just broken into the first team and has to accept that he needs to firmly nail down a starting place both by putting in good performances and showing the right attitude, application and quality on the training pitch.

 

However, most fans love to cite the idea of never changing a winning team, and we did so he has a right to be a little annoyed.

don't forget he's only 23 and has never played anywhere near this level before, I'm sure Pulis has said he doesn't wanna burn him out basically so he won't start every game

My favourite rumour so far...

 

Felipe Caicedo. Currently at Lazio, didn’t do so well last year but just what Pulis likes. Big, tough and generally good at link up play. He has also played in England when he was young for Man City.

 

I wonder if there is any truth...

He was probably an alternative target to Hugill

Wow so much hostility, perhaps I worded it wrong. As an ex footballer I was just feeling sorry for a kid trying to make his way in the world. Time to have a break from this forum, sorry if I upset you.

Don’t think you upset anyone. He has been given a chance of pro football eith Boro after playing non league. He would walk into most league one teams but he is now being asked to function at upper championship level. That is a massive ask and needs some protection.

The local Leganes guy, their Vickers, has said Leganes have followed/wanted Braithwaite for a long time we've set them a price of 8 million euros but there's competition from other La Liga teams so they want to get him on a 1 year loan an option/obligation.

 

By all accounts I guess word's out that Braithwaite's yours for 8 million euros after that the competition is who can put together the finances for it.

Try not to take it personally. I did my best to disagree in a non-hostile way. There's nothing quite like feeling targeted because you're views (however extreme) differ to the majority.

Song for Lewis

 

Making your way in the world today

Takes everything you've got

Taking a break from all your worries

Sure would help a lot

Wouldn't you like to get away - Transfer request

Sometimes you want to go

Where everybody knows your name - Shildon

And they're always glad you came - Shildon

You want to be where you can see

Our troubles are all the same

You want to be where everybody knows your name - Shildon.

Something gives me the impression Millwall fans aren't too hot on the prospect of taking Fletcher on loan as part of the Saville deal...

Norvern?

 

Really? Either it's that difficult to spell for these Southern ***ing morons or they were that desperate to save the femtosecond it would take to change one letter and add another after it.

He played for west ham. May (or may not) have something to do with it.

    • oh an besides the goal, I thought we played alright today.   Just need to get someone to pick that final ball out and we'll be fine - where's Tomlin when you need him 😉
    • I'm absolutely incensed about what happened to Fry today and the abject standard of refereeing in the Championship. I totally agreed with Warnock's post-match comments- it was an absolute travesty of justice. Taking aside the fact he could have ended Fry's career with such a dangerous tackle, he almost blinded him in one eye. That decision completely changes the game - Blackburn do not deserve to have 11 men on the pitch. They also deserve to face a penalty. Even if we had missed the penalty, we'd have had 70- odd minutes with a man advantage. How can a linesman and a referee miss something like that, and even if they missed it in real time, they clearly could have seen a coming together and then Fry with his face smashed up like a dropped Parmo. Then he could use his bloody common sense and take action.   I hate playing Blackburn, and anything involved with them, - going back to the three points debacle, to Gestede scoring that flipping goal against us, to the fact we got absolutely robbed today. And I was hugely disappointed in Mowbray's reaction - he didn't need to say "it's a man's game" - that's poor form.   I just had to vent - I've not been this angry in a long time after a game.   Also, hello to all the oldies, I've been away a long old while 🙂 Ham x      
    • Personally, we ask our CM's to drop into a defensive CB's sweeper roles when defending so I can see what Howson is doing in that position but he just ends up far too deep for my liking especially after losing Armstrong. He should be balling at Spence to get into the right back position and leave Rothwell to himself but like you say Spence has drifted all the way over from RB to CB to mark Rothwell leaving another 2 players free at the back post. Shocking/confusing defending all over but Spence is at fault. @pikerman I wouldn't agree with me though, because certain posters will manipulate your words because you ain't entitled to see football in a different way. 👍 UTB. I will leave that argument there and use my social media platform tomorrow night to further vent my frustration.  
    • You can argue about Spence and/or Howson not doing their jobs (and they probably didn't) until the cows come home but the fact remains that the man who would have been there to stop it had been taken off with a smashed eye/cheek after being assaulted by a Blackburn player who clearly should have been red carded by a total incompetent Referee. As an experienced official there really is no excuse for his performance today Mr Whitestone has quite a history with us as it turns out 12th May 2014 sent off Ayala in away win at Burnley 3rd Jan 2015 sent off Clayton in away win at Barnsley 14th Dec 2019 sent off Browne and McNair in away loss at Swansea His career total Championship sendings off is 7! It may well be another 4 year gap before he Refs us again Oh yes - he's a copper as well
    • Once they scored we just did not look like getting back in the game, we just needed to put one of them chances away which we seemed really unlucky at times. Weirdly today in Moggas team I saw Pulis that's exactly how id expect his teams to setup and play which is kind of weird as wouldn't have expected that from one of his teams. A lot of what I wanted to say has already been covered further up the thread by majority so don't want to go over that.  One of things though I noticed again, Roberts promises a lot is really exciting but when does he actually deliver? again today he was trying to do way too much and kept losing it, I actually thought we were worse when he came on. First season he was here I thought get a good team around him and he be great as he will trust other players more with the ball so will use his skills but not try do it all, we have a better team than last season but hes still trying to do it all himself and maybe that's the issue hes a talented player but will never reach his potential because he tries to do too much. Unfortunately at this point this season now we are scoring more team goals than individual pieces of brilliance I would send him back.
