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?

    • I don't even blame the majority of the people getting on the trains because most of them will be key workers. However, if we can't manage the situation better then the tube would be better off just being closed, doctors and nurses could be put up in hotels close to their place of work or taxis should be laid on.  A packed tube will be like an incubator for the virus and the situation surely can't carry on like this. Another point is that apparently the construction sites are still supposed to be working as normal in London which will also add to the passenger numbers on public transport. Why aren't the government clamping down on the construction industry?  I'm glad to have lived in a society where we have a lot of freedom but in the current situation I think the government needs to exert more control especially in London. 
    • I mean, it was a stupid ass decision to reduce the number of services in the hope it would reduce the number of people per tube. Khan is saying drivers are self-isolating or are ill themselves. Obviously the latter is unavoidable but given the scale of the tube usage, surely tube drivers should be considered key workers too? How many of them will be in self-enforced isolation who could feasibly be working? Though I'm willing to bet it's not just key workers who are using them and perhaps an alternative is to start ensuring valid reasons for travel instead of just letting anyone use them. There's potential problems with all of the solutions but the main problem as ever is the people who use them. I lived there, anyone else who has or does and has dealt with the Central Line for a short period of time, never mind the 3 years I did, will know it feels like 90% of the people going to work in the capital every day felt they were more important and more significant to the world than the people around them, the very peak of the capitalist society we live in where some people would step on their dead grandmother for an extra few bob. It gets in your bones too, it's almost beyond your control to be the same as them because you know as soon as you hold open a metaphorical door for the more vulnerable, those who are perfectly fine will capitalise on your good gesture and will never give you credit for your good deed. This virus has levelled the playing field significantly in that we are reminded about how individually, we are all important and all our individual decisions can impact so many other people. The maths is simple. If you can feasibly do so, staying at home is going to be hugely positive in delaying the spread of this virus. It's important that those of us who can, do so, in order to allow those who can't to be less at risk.
    • It's sounding most likely that the season will be completed in June/July behind closed doors.
    • We would even settle for you up front Alan with Teddy as your support striker 😂
