Summer Transfer Window 2019/20 Season

Recommended Posts

as it stands the central defender is maybe the most pressing  position we need filling.  Shotton is a liability in there, Ayala will pick up injuries and bans and Fry is going to attract  attention which eventually may well be too good to turn down.  also the new guy needs to be  a regular starter or on a par with fry and ayala  at the very least  .  we do need a rb and rw too   and a striker  if  can manage it.

Maybe i'm living in fantasy land, but Ben Gibson on loan would be nice, as would Reece James, although I fear they are both off to other Premier League clubs - Gibson permanently and James on loan.

No chance in my humble opinion.

Talking about Clayton .. 

Do we need a player of his type as back up?  Or can Howson or McNair fill in? They are not similar to Clayton's style, so we might need that type for this new system... If he God forbid got injured

Possibly the most important position in the system we have. I think we definitely need someone else.

I think so too! 

Saville never did it for me as the anchored CM

Possibly. I haven’t really seen enough of him in midfield to know. Saville and Howson for me would be a definite no though.

Wasn't Malley thought of by the club to be making that role his own by the end of the season? 

I thought the U23 coach said he was more a number 10 when we beat Bishop Aukland.

I think we will get a cheap right back, possibly Hutton, and loans for a winger and centre back. Getting too late for significant long term signings now.

I feel for those we've missed out on. We are a great club and have what looks to be a good coaching team

 The lad who's gone to Reading has been sold a dud.

We couldn't get him in because we can't shift Rudy, that's not him choosing Reading over us.

dont think we need another cb personally, well at least not as a priority. we have ayala and fry likely first choice which is about as good as you get in the champo. shotton and friend as backups. friend bola and coulson at left back, might see george play in the middle more. which i'm totally fine with as its good to have a left footer on left cb.

the attacking right back is priority with a cm and a shotton covering until we get a genuine one. cant just hoy spence in. especially while we have new blood on the other side.

deffo need a attacking mid, if wing is injured where are the goals coming from? i dont rate saville at all, tbh i dont even know what he supposed to bring to the team. he doesnt move the ball quickly at all just ambles round. hes average af. never mind monk tranfers being questioned flint and saville ones smell of back handers to me. 

another winger needed, johnson and browne with fletch capable. not enough at all. once we have the new winger fletch will probably be cover for britt mainly.

bomb gestede out asap and saville please. not a real priority but i'd like to sell shotton, pulling my hair out watching him bomb long balls or completely waste possession giving a simple pass straight to the other team. ***.

But he could have been told to wait. Come Wednesday Gibson may have signed it off. Agent just wanted his money I guess.

    • Not to prolong the point for too long as last night exhausted me so much so that I want to frankly rid politics and politicians from the system for a couple of years, right now... 😂 but the proposed funding for the NHS doesn't stack up. Admittedly, contrary to what some on the left say, I'm pretty sure the Tories recently have been putting more in even in real terms and that's all well and good... but the NHS is becoming more expensive due to the ageing population without even considering the strain that the level of funding is putting on workers, especially with little to no financial reward from it. It's one of the best things about our country and for it to remain that way, we have to fund it more than we ever have. I'd frankly throw a lot of the nationalisation policies in the bin if it meant we just gave the NHS the money it needed to keep being great. If as I suspect, we do enter into a trade deal with the US with anything to do with health on the table, that number will rise even more. Tories are more likely to make tax cuts than ask for more tax to pay for anything so by that measure, the lowest rungs on the societal ladder of our country will fall off first. The NHS, mental health, social care, etc. there's not enough going in to solve these problems. Labour's spending plans were through the roof but the Tories are barely spending anything at all based on their plans. I was listening to Mark Francois on LBC the other week talking to a fella with a wife and 2 kids who looks after both his now disabled parents as a carer so their only income is his carer's allowance and his wife's job, £14k for looking after children with special needs, something like £18k overall? He asks Francois what the Tories will do for him and the best he can come up with is that over time, he'll be able to keep more of his money from tax. I sincerely worry for people like that who contribute so much in a very small, localised circle getting little support from this government. It genuinely makes me sad that people who can't do anything but put a brave face on every day and just get by get nothing in return for it.
    • I mean, I know it's pretty difficult to trust any politician, especially Johnson, but the NHS and improving it was like the first key point (after Brexit obviously) that he talked about, so fingers crossed he actually legitimately sticks to what he said in his speech, because I didn't disagree with any of it. Now I suppose we just have to wait and see..
    • We need to go with 2 strikers up top. If Britt is fit off course he comes back in but if not I’d give Walker a go alongside Fletcher. Look very weak leaving Fletcher up front isolated. 
    • I feel like it could be another 7-0 win for us, I really do.
