January transfer window 19/20 season Post Mortem

Recommended Posts

My issue with Randolph is that if we dont sell him now is we get even less for him in summer. At moment we are getting our money back and for FFP purposes it is going down as a profit. In the summer neither of above 2 will be happening if he stays beyond Jan

Sorry I just needed to see kids as off to London tomorrow until saturday.

 

Randolph - West Ham tried to renegotiate with us and wanted a loa  as they couldn't be sure with injury... woody said buy or do one basically.

 

Ayala - Injury doesn't look great, ankle still swollen but heads south with squad on Monday.

Spence - Negotiations moving forward , all looks positive. 4 prem teams have asked to kept informed of any changes.

Howson - pretty much all agreed ... 3yr deal.

Britt - lots of loan interest but everyone told the same 10mil or not interested.

Robert's - Boro keen to do perm , city open to it , Roberts open to it , prem I test kn summer could be an issue.

 

Transfers in.. Woody and club desperate to get Ben back , player keen even looking at a buy

Swiss keeper all agreed apart from medical if Randz goes.

Woody wants 2 on top of that if we can do it.

Any idea on Britt’s injury? Woodgate said he went to see a specialist a week or two ago in one of his press conferences I think

Don’t really see why we are so keen to bring Gibson back. I loved him when he was here and he was class. 
But he has barely played for 2 years, so I don’t get why we are so eager to get him back here.

cant imagine him being cheap, surely there are better options out there?

Thank you for all that @Smoggydownsouth. Really appreciate it.

Does club still expect Randolph to go?

Any news on Clarke?

You know you said woody wants 2 on top of swizz gk and ben. U know positions of other 2?

Great news on Howson's contract and Spence sounds positive as well. Would love Roberts on a permanent, suspect he’ll be in high demand if he becomes available though

Roberts looks a top quality player. I’d happily take us selling Randolph and Assombalonga to help fund signing him on a permanent deal. The way he glides with the ball past players in tight spaces is reminiscent of Juninho.

    • 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 😂
