January transfer window 19/20 season Post Mortem

Recommended Posts

It's 1000% a Gary Gill special we've tracked him for over a year the Gazette say and whoever's done the tracking has the sway to get Gibson to greenlight a 7 figure transfer fee to a European team for a guy with 6 months left. We know Gary has his almost gots like Lindelof but he also has his misses (De Sart, Fischer etc) his latest special we know about I'm not sure if it's a near miss or not Becker got injured almost immediately.

I'm glad we're looking to Europe again there's value and quality there if you source it right and Gill's a little murky on actual deliverables but if he's the most senior recruiting voice right now I'm glad he has more influence in replacing Randolph than Bevington being the senior recruitment guy.

Also on Britt staying or going there is yet another 2 million pound ballpark value striker linked with us today apparently we've watched him closely over recent months just as we have with Cosgrove and that name is Lawrence Shankland at Dundee.

Suggests we're preparing to invest in a new striker(s) you'd guess right now it's contingency planning for this window just in case Britt leaves but the next window all of these 2-3 million pound striker links will probably give us an inkling of who we'll move for and in what market if we cut losses on Britt as people expect.

Why? Isn’t only the ultra unreliable Graeme Bailey who’s said that? I don’t have anything to back up my claim though so I’m just trying to be realistic. 

The Swiss outlets are reporting 1.5 million CHF (1.2 million sterling) so if anything Bailey's undershot the fee it seems.

The selling club always max out the potential fee though I'd guess a chunk is in future add ons but we definitely paid a premium fee that's for sure, you wonder what they'd have quoted us last summer if we sold Randolph then probably 2.5 to 3 million!

It’s in the gazette piece. Over a million.

I'm sure it's not as simple as just a million quid transferred from our bank to theirs. It'll be performance related, if we get promoted etc

Shankland is an interesting one. An analyst I speak to regularly raves about him. His scoring record is outrageous but I wonder how hed handle the step up in quality.

Seriously why are people so bothered about a relatively small fee?

I’d imagine it’s because it’s a significant portion of our relatively small budget

Why as fans are we bothered though? The coaching team clearly have a plan and he's an important part of that. Equally the budget is adaptable, it clearly depends on when and how it's paid.

Genuinely don't get the obsession with football fans and fees

only an issue if it's all upfront, and seriously doubt that.

The data analyst for Portsmouth on twitter seems to think that Stojanovic is a great keeper. Thinks he’ll be no1

Did the same apply to Bola and Browne in the summer? Was part of the plan having to send them back to their previous clubs because of how poor they’ve been?

I agree smogzilla, it is a big jump and we’d probably have to pay a premium as Dundee United are going for promotion.

    • The good news is that matches are not decided on current form or there'd be no need for bookies, or anything. That's what we all love about the game its unpredictability...  If we perform we'll gain some sort of result.
