Summer Transfer Window 2019/20 Season

Recommended Posts

Maybe the summer transfer thread has run it's course now because little by little there are posts referring to what might be happening.

Although early maybe someone could author a winter transfer window thread because there will be "links" rumours and speculation both in's and outs and with our current plight there is a lot of potential to debate in the forthcoming weeks.

Going to close this now (should have done weeks ago as it still drifts along)

I think someone made the point that a transfer thread should just be a constant thing and I kind of agree to be honest. Maybe time to put an end to the Winter/Summer threads.

Hmmm I don't know history tells me that members like both windows to be discussed otherwise it will always be an on-going saga with big gaps!

Also and especially with our current state if this continues and we drop further then people will want to use the winter window thread even more so. There will be plenty of activity when up and running I am sure

I think this may have been me. One thread to discuss transfers as there is never really a break in speculation despite the windows. Just makes sense to me

Come on, you cannot always have your way 😛 Your constant crying made way for the NFL thread to be moved, now this .. A five billion pages thread is not the answer .. A new fresh thread for each window brings more meaning, then one can go back in the archive and easier find something if needed in the future. 🤡

makes absolutely no difference to me either way .  i can see sense in both sides of the arguement.  but sadly the  outcome itself just looks like turning into a *** contest  .

I think it's better to just have a thread per transfer window otherwise we are going to have this thread with a million pages in! Also makes it more difficult to archive a transfer window as we may want too look back at how depressed we were in 4 year time 😂. The compromise could be a 19-20 season long transfer feed. Then next summer a 20-21 one is created?

I think when a thread causes arguments it is time to close them.

This is why we used to close previous threads because folks got fed up with it.

I am a bit of a traditionalist and like to see threads dedicated for both windows and whilst I appreciate others view points I see no reason to change a tried and tested way.

Therefore title changed and thread closed

    • 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.
