Summer Transfer Window 2019/20 Season

I think Woodgate has learned from past transfer windows. We are always hearing we are aiming to get 3/4 in coming up to deadline which we invariably fail to do and fans kick off. But by saying we are only likely to get 1 target in then ending up with 3/4 the club will be hailed as heroes. 

The tell is he himself bemoaned a 'thin' squad 6 days ago saying he needed a 'few' in since then we've signed 1 in Dijksteel.

My guess is Vickers is correct we're after a specialist RB that isn't Hutton and a Prem attacking midfielder who can play striker if we only get 1 it'll look par if we get both it'll look good. I think if we get a pacey prem Winger-Striker and a RB we're pretty well covered everywhere except actual CBs but if he believes Friend's genuinely going to be a good LCB we have to go with it.

Not for us, no. Although I think we can still send players to leagues 1 and 2 till the end of August.

If it's anyone, it may be Kent. It sounded like one we were struggling to get sorted. Which you'd imagine the Kent one would be. But he fits the bill of the type of signing we should be making still.

I reckon it'll most likely be that Wes Burns as he is an attacking midfielder who can play as a striker.

Bit of update... batted off enquiries for Britt Dael Tav Wing today..  not actively looking to sell though if the offer gets stupid people will be sold. One more is a winger / ST. The other RB will probably be Hutton as he is a free agent so less pressure to get the deal done by tomorrow. We are not being held to Ransom. Refreshing to know we aren't being used as a payday though I still think there will be a twist in the tail.

How bloody hard is it to sign a proper winger? We havent signed a winger thats slotted into our first 11 since we brought bloody Stewart downing back.  And even he was in and out depending on the manager. Let that sink in.

    • Businesses should be means tested much like people are for social welfare. There is no way bajillionaires like Branson should get away with furloughing staff, neither should businesses with 100's of millions of pounds income per year. 
    • Liverpool have reversed the decision now. Rightly so, in my opinion. 
    • I don’t think it’s down to the working class nature of football, boxers don’t get the same flack, I think it’s because clubs are very often the heart of a community. I remember chatting to a woman I met a few years ago who wouldn’t let her kids watch football because footballers were payed an obscene amount of money. I asked her if she allowed her kids to watch Hollywood movies, of course, she said!  
    • Wherever you stand on it... Footballers do always seem to be fair game when it comes to having a pop at the rich. Is it the working class nature of football? I've always wondered.  Where are the calls for musicians, actors, or even athletes from other well-paid sports to give up their earnings for the less fortunate? Or the bankers and CEOs who squirrel millions away into offshore accounts, taking from society and never giving back? At least footballers bring a bit of joy and entertainment to millions of people a couple of times a week. 
    • Yep, its a real sob story.  But in normal life, imagine if you could live comfortably on 10% of your takehome after buying your house and car. You would only have day to day expenses, holidays, etc. You take the rest of your salary and put it in one of those long term savings accounts (or whatever) that you cannot touch for 2 years. Then your salary is reduced and that 10% is no longer enough to cover your day to day. Regardless of how much actual money that is, when you try to force people to change their living circumstances you will always have push-back.  Now of course nobody earning decent money should be in that situation. It is recommended to split your savings, some in short term (easily retrieved), some in medium term (normally a wait period to retrieve) and some in long term (not normally retrievable) eg Property and pension.  On one hand it does highlight that these are just people, like all of us. On the other hand, they are fabulously wealthy and a target for those less well off who are revered when times are good and reviled when times are bad.  I don't blame the players for earning what they do, you make hay while the sun shines and we would all probably try to earn the same if circumstances were different. The clubs though are a different story and should be looking after the non mega-rich employees.
