The Transfer Thread.

Lazar Markovic seems to be a player who desperately needs a loan move that will give him game time to reignite his career. With us being desperate for another winger I'm pretty sure that he'll be somewhere on our list of RW options.

 

Away from home we can get away with playing central midfielders in wide positions but at home we're going to need far more creativity, pace and quality to break through teams who are happy to sit in and hold their shape.

 

I don’t know about him, since his Liverpool move has he ever done anything at all worth talking about?

 

In his 6 year career he’s only ever made more than 15 appearances once, his seasonal average seems to be 5 games.

 

He hasn’t played a competitive game for 2 years and his goal stats are 7 in 81 making him a 1 goal in 11/12 player.

 

Seems like nobody wants to touch this guy and when they do he rarely plays, must be a pretty serious problem somewhere along the line.

Was a hI’ve prospect but has completely stalled. I don’t think his personality is something pulis would value. Could turn out to be a Gaston-risqué signing if he could find his old form. But that’s a huge IF because he’s been away for so long.

Tbf his last loan in England he was at hull where he played 12 games getting 2 goals. If he came here and repeated that form over 19 games he’d get about 3 goals, give benefit of the doubt that at a lower level he’d get a couple more so maybe 5 or 6. Which wouldn’t be to bad.

 

However for a wide forward type player his assist stats are awful so you couldn’t say he would create a boatload. Also when he was at Hull I can’t remember if that was between summer and January or January and summer. He went to sporting Lisbon in the same season apparently so did hull send him back in January or not renew his loan?

 

Full of red flags this guy, huge gamble, last resort for me.

What positions are these players or what positions are we concentrating on? All forwards, youngish, lesser known types? Like a future Ollie Watkins/Jarrod Bowen? Or are we trying to pull off a bigger name signing also?

All forward and young players with bags of potential and already living up to it. With an experienced striker for good measure

Aston Villa have recalled winger Andre Green from Portsmouth. That could have a significant impact upon the future of Jamal Lowe as they're going to be even more reluctant to lose another key winger.

 

We're most likely going to have to wait for Premier League clubs to get their incomings before they're willing to loan out their back-up players.

    • Just looking at the actual comments made by BD, a couple of things come to mind. For one, the comment BD responded to was the one suggesting we go to the foreign market to buy players, not them. Secondly, BD has said it wasn't personal, that it could have been phrased better and I guess that's up to you whether you believe that or not but it's worth remembering that whilst they demonstrate excellent English skills, they aren't English and perhaps it would be mindful to think about that before jumping on them. Finally, BD is right, people do make comments like DR said. To look at the European market where better, cheaper transfers can be found, DR isn't alone in that. A lot of people do and have done even in the years following the original vote. That will be people all across the ~50/50, of course and it stands to reason there will be plenty of people annoyed by the fact 'we' voted that way not just for, but inclusive of the way we wanted our football club to be run. But ultimately BD is right that it is at the very least naïve to think we can operate in that market the way others have done in the past. We'll see how the laws around work permits change from here on but we left the EU and lost the freedom of movement and that inevitably brought challenges to recruitment, not just in the football industry. If you remember the time around the vote itself, immigration was a bloody huge topic so I'd be surprised if it changed that much. After all, why should footballers be any different? There are arguments for and against the long-term effects too, perhaps the development of players in this country can improve with a league less saturated by foreign talent. But opportunity isn't the only thing that drives the collective improvement of football, even at our level. There can surely be no doubt that the influence of foreign, especially European players and coaches has been felt in English football. Previous to us leaving, that was just less chance of us bringing those people to the Championship and lower levels. It feels like that gap to talent is only getting made bigger between the top level and below with these changes in the long-term. The best teams will still be able to justify bringing the best players and coaches in, we might less capable.
    • With puns like that you should emulate Ukraine's no. 25....  Positively Netherlands 13 :)..     good end to end game..  Ukrainian keeper MOTM  
    • borodanes point on Brexit is stating fact - get over it people - you voted for it! As for previous signings Woody seems to have done ok but was hounded out by the keyboard warriors who are better than him . Similar to Mogga really but ..... As for the “uninspiring” potential signings perhaps someone wants to Chuck a few million to Gibbo so that he can sign a world beater or two ...thought not! the World is in a bad place and my only hope is that there is a Boro in 12/24 months time as there will be teams that go under. If we offer x and a player wants y then we say thanks but no thanks and move on. If that means a Wyke or a Smith is wearing the shirt then I am fine with that
