Summer Transfer/Rumours and the 'Golden Thread' Summer 2019

Recommended Posts

All the players mentioned in the last page or two were all during Orta's time here. So it could be argued that he was responsible for finding them, as opposed to the current scouts.

Good point tbf, but didn’t gill also say he had been following de roons and Fischer for a few seasons? Suggests they were his targets?

Maybe gill wanted Fischer and orta wanted Ziyech

Could be some truth to that.  The current lot are more the Van La Parra and Flint selections really.  And Hugill.  So we're in safe hands.

I dont know what our scouting department have been doing the last 2 and a half years to be honest. Every one of our signings could have been picked out by anyone with a casual interest in the top couple of divisions in England. Wing has probably been the only signing that would have required any work at all.

Read a piece the other day saying Liverpool scout a player for 20+ straight games to get a balanced opinion.

Lindlof was apparently all but signed for £3m before they pulled the plug due to an injury crisis. The rest is history.

Pretty sure that Wing was definitely Gill

I might be being a bit harsh here but hasn't he been kinda underwhelming for Man Utd?  I accept that they signed him for big money and of course it's all relative but I haven't really seen what they paid it all for so far.  On top of that we're talking about a central defender, which let's face it wasn't really one of the areas we needed to improve upon.  I can't say I'm remotely bothered about missing out on him and until he starts playing consistently well I'll see him more as a £3m player than a £30m one.

I believe he was seen as a RB/CB AND he would have been an improvement on all the RB's we had at the time but it's all about perceptions

To prove the point people on here where up in arms when we went after Maguire now Leicester are wanting £80m+ .

Lol, I think you'll find there was one very specific poster up in arms about Maguire, the rest of us were fine with it lol.
