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.

    • Agree. He is still a bit green. But I think he's acquitted himself pretty decently, considering the circumstances. I also can't understand why Mejias wasn't the default replacement for Randolph. Guess Woody doesn't like him for some reason.  
    • In as much as he played one game against Man United in the League Cup, and in the subsequent defeat to Everton. Pears has already played more English league football than Meijas, and Meijas is 30. There's a reason we started playing an aging Greek journeyman over a keeper we'd signed from Real Madrid, and it wasn't because Dimi was an outstanding keeper.
    • You can't judge any player on 1 game. Pears actually made a good double save when Swansea were only ahead by the penalty. He's also made good saves in other recent games. Check the highlights of the Charlton & Burnley games. But he's young, inexperienced and will make more mistakes than you'd expect from older players. Also, in fairness, its not like he's getting a lot of help from our defence.  
    • Pears is not a bad keeper, he's just not ready for the Championship. Why on earth we're not playing Mejias instead I have no idea, the guy has PL experience FFS!
    • Which is why it is SO urgent that Gibson takes action, sooner rather than later. Bad morale is like a disease that eventually infects everyone. Even the keen youngsters like Spence, Walker etc. will see whats going on, not see any light at the end of the tunnel and start thinking they may be better off elsewhere.
