Summer Transfer Window 2019/20 Season

Recommended Posts

While Randolph is the best keeper in the league and I’d love to keep him, if a huge bid comes in we surely can’t turn it down if it means we can spend that on wingers/striker

we went up with Dimi so you don’t need to have a top quality keeper to get promoted there’ll be plenty of decent keepers we could look at on the cheap

We also played ridiculously awesomely defensively that year - I don't know for sure but I would hazard a guess we would be near the top in least shots conceded per game the playoff and promotion years.

We went up despite Dimi being in the team. He barely had any saves to make most games which is why he kept so many clean sheets. Our defence were the heroes that season.

Why would Randolph want to go to Stoke? And why on Earth would we possibly consider selling him to a championship rival who finished lower in the league than us last season?

Other than a big pay rise I can't really think of a reason but that is a pretty good reason especially when you're playing at the same level.

We'll sell anyone to anyone if the money is right.

I don't mean to poke fun at you, well ok I do, but 'ridiculously awesomely defensively'?  If this is what twitter does to people then I'm even more grateful not to be involved in it ?

It also says that we are interested in signing Butland if you read it properly ?

That's harsh. While our defence definitely boosted Dimi's stats, he never really let the side down that season, and massively exceeded any expectations the majority of us had for him

If we get offered 10 million for a 32 year old GK with 2 years left on his contract and turn it down it'd be horrendous business to be honest.

We could get a solid enough GK aged 23-26 for 5 million no problem I'd rather have a new GK 9-6 years younger on half the wages and 5 million in the bank than let Randolph run down his contract a further 12 months. I'd be shocked if we would turn down 8 figures for Randolph it's a no brainer if that kind of offer came in. Look at it this way Randolph's probably got 2 more years left at a good level do we force him to have them with us and run his contract out for nothing or take the opportunity to get 8 figures for a high earning 32 year old?

We must be remembering that season very differently then clearly as I recall him making a number of mistakes that in the PL would have led to goals, most of them from long range shots where our defenders could hardly take the blame.

Long range shots are what I remember aswell, could definately understand why he never got a look in in the premiership.

He should always have been #3 behind Valdes and Guzan but as soon as we were officially relegated and it was public that Guzan was leaving he should have been given a game just to say he'd played in the PL.

Go on, i'll bite. 

 

Who?

Haha i was not actually asking for a bite but expressing a genuine opinion. There is Adrian who now a free agent from West Ham and who if i recall some of our fans wanted ahead of Randolph. Fraser Forster is currently 3rd choice at Saints. I accept his form has declined in last 12-18mths but maybe he just needs a move to kick start his career as he was a top PL GK 2 seasons ago. Burnley got 3 GKs. I accept Hart has struggled in PL but could he do a solid job in league below? 

Begovic at Bornmouth another who was dropped last season and if Butland goes to bornmuff could find himself 3rd choice.

    • At this point I'd usually go check out how Millwall were doing and figure out how we could beat them. But whilst Stoke wasn't exactly a masterclass, the last two games in particular have left me bereft of confidence in this side. This squad isn't built out of League One quality players and yet the lack of quality coming from players at the moment makes it look like they are. Our passing and movement is so key to the way Warnock wants us to play but I just don't think anyone is really tackling this task together right now. We see some individual quality on display, particularly from Roberts and Britt at times in the last few games, but it's just not coming together as a unit. The final ball or decision is made too late, too strong or too weak. I agree with some others that I don't think that effort is necessarily the issue... it's just quality when and where it matters. We don't have a single player in the squad right now who's capable of planting a ball on a player's noggin on a consistent basis from a dead ball, never mind when in the flow of play. Still, the team? Hopefully Spence is back... this is what comes to mind. Stojanovic Spence Fry Friend Coulson Tav Howson Saville Roberts Fletcher Britt
    • I so thought that this match was on at 5pm.  Let's hope my 2pm work meeting takes less than an hour.  (Or do I want the meeting to go on for ages so that I avoid seeing how rubbish we are?)
