The Transfer Thread.

Recommended Posts

It's a small world, apparently vlp is my nieces best friends uncle.

 

So does this officially make you ITK ;)

 

I asked if there were any other uncles we could have. My nephew plays for Amsterdam football club, which is a popular youth feeder club for Ajax (he's only 10 though)

 

Can your nephew play wide on the right or as a number 10?

 

He is a forward, plays an age group above his age and has a good goal record. Not sure if he has the commitment needed though

 

Sounds like another Ramirez.. no thank you.

He is a bit of a wimp, doesn't like it when I sweep his legs

I would happily move on any of our midfielders for a genuine number 10. Seeing as besic, Saville and Downing are unlikely and I want to keep Wing it leaves Howson and Clayton. Out of those two I think we’d have more interest Clayton.

I'd honestly consider letting Besic go back to Everton. I certainly wouldn't be chasing him in the summer at this rate. A shame as I think there's a player in there, just not really something we're seeing or something we drastically need.

I'm still baffled by the Saville signing, don't get me wrong as I do like him, it's just £7m for player that we already have in Howson, Besic, Wing and to an extent McNair.

We're so overloaded in central midfield it's criminal and as much as Sawyers is a very good player and a decent playmaker I just don't think we can justify signing him unless we move on atleast 2 of our current CMs

listening to pulis Saville is a signing for the future. besic is a loan and Clayton and Howson are upper 20s.

 

he thinks Saville will captain the club.

I still don't see much of what Howson does apart from being able to cover a lot of ground.

I think Saville will be good for our club, I just think we have to many of the same player.

For me I'd like to see Saville replace Howson in the team, I'd love to see a midfield 3 of Besic, Wing and Saville but the only issue is weather Besic is disaplinned enough to play the holding role that Clayton does

Is more flexible and adds balance than the Clayton and Besic.

He has 5 assists in the league this season to be fair to him

I don't think he'll get as good a contract as we've probably given him so I don't think he will. We won't make much money on him other than getting him off the wage bill. I like Howson though, I think he's a pretty solid midfielder, bit jack of all trades but master of none but he puts the yards in and is one of the only midfielders who doesn't actually look that knackered at the end of matches where we've played with a high press, thought him and Wing were a good partnership early on.

 

I wouldn't sell Clayton unless it's for daft money that we could replace him with and then some, he's still got a few years left in him I think and I think certainly at this level, what he can do and does is invaluable. People still undervaluing him even in a team that sets up how we do makes me chuckle a bit. I wouldn't trust our recruitment team to find a good replacement for him either.

Besic played the Clayton role last home game and I thought he was far more effective. For me Clayton is the biggest problem we've had this season - slow, negative and limited. Even Leadbitter showed him how to play the role v Pbro.

    • How anyone can watch those ŕeplays and claim its a definate penalty is beyond everybody else. It was not a foul.
    • What I will say is I wish we played like we did in the 2nd half all the time because we'd be a far better team. Ball on the floor and use the technical players we have to create spaces and opportunities. Not long ball after long ball to 6ft and under forwards up against giant centre halves!  For me the play offs is a tall order now unless we go on a great run, which with our inconsistency so far this season looks unlikely. However, next season if we can retain the likes of Bolasie, Kebano, NML and add a quality goalkeeper and striker I think we'll have a great chance. 
    • Well... What a ****heap of a day... I don't get to follow much in Lockdown as I spend 7.5 hours online tutoring on saturdays - but having watched back? Jesus Christ. Our play-off hopes are diminishing. If we don't make it, I'll be rooting for Barnsley. The turnaround under Ismaël is nothing short of incredible. They're also the only other viable northern club in contention...
    • Surprised by Quest as last week they were talking about how abuse of refs isn't right. But they has to be something done want some sort of VAR  in the championship as is very much a big spotlight on it. If a ref makes a blunder it can hinder their career like the Blackburn ref he hasn't had a game since.  I don't want VAR to rule of finger nail offsides but if they could see these game defining incidents would be alot less controversy and loss in reputation for the refs. As that ref must be feeling very anxious his decisions been shared all across social media right around the world. If was VAR the spotlight wouldn't be on him he wouldn't be receiving the abuse. Its needed to protect the refs really otherwise spirals out control.  In league 1 or 2 isn't the same like spotlight on it doesn't matter as much.
