Summer Transfer Window 2019/20 Season

Recommended Posts

So, is there any reports on bids on any of our players other than Shotton? It looks like everyone is into one of those meltdown spirals again, over nothing

Was right behind the goal for that. Couldn’t believe my eyes. Every pre season game (and Luton) he’s made a huge error and looked uncomfortable in Woody’s system for 90 minutes. Will be scenes if sold.

Surely the points on Britt are all valid

- He scores goals

- He doesn't score enough goals

- He needs service

- He may or may not be suited to a pressing game

- He cost a lot and is paid a lot

- We could possibly get as good for less money

- We could easily spend a lot on a player who fails

- If he stays we are guaranteed at least 15 goals from him

- If he scores 20+ this season he could go for £25m+ after that

 

On balance I prefer for him to stay but I have to say that if he goes it is not the season ender some are claiming.  At this late stage in the window though it just seems daft to sell him unless we have something else lined up that will pretty much guarantee his 15 goals at least

If the money's there the first thing I do tomorrow is give Fry a new contract offer top him up to what Shotton was on he's so important for us.

When we're trying to bring down the wage bill, yeah that makes sense.

Just classic meltdown. Some of it is justified as we don't seem to adress the lack of winger/creativity again with the clock ticking down. I don't think we are selling anyone important ie. Britt, Fry or Randolph. I wouldn't mind any midfielder bar Wing leave if it meant funds for a decent winger.

1) Deserves parity with Friend and Ayala.

2) Incentivise him to stay see off near future whispers of 30/40k a week to Burnley secures our highest priced asset.

3) He's probably on 15kish on his 2018 contract it's not that much extra onto the wage bill.

It makes total sense?

A 21 year old youth graduate on 15k? Even at Prem Clubs they aren't on that!

If he’s as happy as Woodgate says he is why would we even offer the contract?

Graeme Bailey tweeting that Success at Watford has championship interest if they sign a winger, so that’s probably who was being talked about earlier. Would be a great signing

I doubt he'd get that much at Burnley, didn't sds say Gibbo had to take a paycut to go there?

    • Liverpool recently posted profits that was in the tens of millions. They don’t need to furlough non-playing staff as they can afford to comfortably pay them. They are expecting the ordinary tax payer to pay their staff wages so they can hang on to their millions. It’s morally wrong to go down this route when they can well afford to pay the wages.
    • Liverpool are getting a lot of flack for furloughing their non-playing staff, whilst paying the players their full salary. I’m sure I’ve read that Boro have done something similar, yet another case of the big clubs getting all the attention. 
    • It seems that way. Oh well. He can just focus on our being our assistant manager then.
    • FAI are trying to save face regarding Keane. Personally I think he will be paid off to leave 'We're in discussions with Robbie' - Keane could still have role with FAI - That’s a quote from over here in Ireland from the new CEO.
    • @Blanco. Looks like Robbie Keane could be on his way out as assistant boss? As you said above, Andrews and Duff have now been confirmed as part of new set up. Apparently there was a rumour Keane could take over u21S but that not happening as u21 boss also been confirmed.
