Batth wouldn't be much of a loss. Sign a RB, have Shotton challenge for RB and CB. Wood is there if needs be with injuries too.

 

Tend to agree. Big plus having him in the squad but we have Shotton and Fry who can play CB. Their original positions and Mcnair to sub in at RB should we get an injury or two

 

We are probably also covering Batths entire wage packet which I would imagine is around 25k or more. It would be much better with a specialised RB.

Is this being done to enable us to sign Adama on loan. Isn't there some rule that prevents you from signing more than one player from a club on loan?

 

I think that only applies to Premier League clubs.

We've had 2+ Chelsea players before now

16 year old centre back in a promotion push .. what could go wrong

 

Or we could just play Fry there, in his actual position.

 

I think you missed the word 'challenge.' As in, be one of several options. Fry, Ayala, Flint, Shotton, Wood, Friend (system depending).

 

And on Wood being 16 - If you're good enough, you're old enough. And as I said; only if needs must.

B. Dortmund at looking to offload Shinji Kagawa for a fee of £2-3m. For that price he’s a bargain and exactly the type of AM we could do with. Could be this seasons Rameirez. Not that I think we could attract him but we should be looking at this or similar

He has what? 8 or 9 all together? Barely played, no support and doesn't take the pens.. A different manager might have lined us up with a front 3 of Tav, Britt and Chapman. Instead we've got 5 centre mids and Hugill. Sickening.

 

Britt is a one in two striker in this league. They don't just grow on trees.

 

Silly question...Britt gets goals but has limitations, and would probably score more in an attacking team, such as Villa, if we could get a striker like Abrahams in to replace him, would that be acceptable or not (unlikely, but given Villa's current position, could he be tempted?)

 

If you look at the way Britt plays he always looks to get in behind the back line for 1on1s with the keeper, problem is that is his only trick, i've been to games this season where teams have sat deep on the edge of the box and he still tries to make those runs in behind the defence when there is simply no space to do it, it's either cut out or rolls straight onto the keeper, if you look at a lot of top strikers they come deep to create space a lot more often. Braithwaite did this brilliantly and it creates gaps for midfielders/a second striker to run into the gaps it creates. Britt doesn't do this, hence the lack of speed in our play around the box, a clever striker understands his job isn't just to score goals but to create space for others to score too, especially this day in age where most teams love to camp on the edge of their box.

 

Don't get me wrong i think Britt is a quality player and an asset to the team if he's playing against a side not camped on their box/ alongside clever players that will create space for him to run into but as a lone striker in our system (and with the players we have) he'll never be a 20+ a season player, so it's up to Pulis whether he tries to bring in those players to help him (and the team) flourish or whether he replaces him with someone who can create that space (seems silly having just sold Braithwaite and that we don't actually have willing runners) or someone who can get on the end of crosses. (but we'd have to have someone who can actually cross the ball).

 

Last option and probably the easiest option is to teach britt how to make those little clever movements to create space for others before then getting himself into a scoring position, that's what coaches are for, right?

"Boro are now set to let him join their Championship rivals in a permanent deal, with the Teesside club having a number of add-ons including a sizeable sell-on in the deal.

 

Rovers boss Tony Mowbray hopes to have Chapman signed within the next 48 hours, and it will see him land a player he has been chasing for months."

I don't think it's the worst thing to be honest that he is solely looking to get in behind, it pushes the oppositions defensive line back, the problem at the moment is that we don't have anyone exploiting space opened up in between the midfield and defence.

 

He's also good with crosses into the box, was second in the league for headed goals last season. At this level it's alright to be a one dimensional striker as long as you're good at what you do.

i get everyone panicking over britt leaving. but lets be honest 15mill and 45k a week. not worth it. he's pretty *** and only capable of looking decent in the box with the ball it his feet.

cant pass, cant dribble, zero creativity. he is not the answer in a 451 or a 4231. if we get the right player in to replace him, we'll be sound. if we dont then i think i'll be annoyed to say the least.

I have a feeling that britt will go. And we won't replace him or will replace him with a loan.

 

It's a worrying trend over the last 2 windows that were selling players for big money and not sufficiently replacing them and just stashing the cash.
