January transfer window 19/20 season Post Mortem

Recommended Posts

£10m plus Gibson would do it for me. Although I'd rather we just bought Gibson & had them both.

I kinda view Gibson funding the deal to sign Gibson back as more his own thing tbh.. like the fact he's spent £50m on his big daft (ugly) house. He probably just wants his nephew back, so *** it, let him do it.

10mill for Fry rejected. Honestly that’s not far from what I’d be inclined to accept. Maybe 13-14. 

What value do people think Fry is worth?

Do we need to rush into selling him? I think the question is how much could we sell him for in the future? Don't get me wrong he has had a difficult season but does this mean we get rid after the first real interest shown in him.

just asked windowcleaner about Dael as he also takes care of his house....Fry has no interest in being a benchwarmer miles from the rest of his family and unless forced out, would rather earn and play here where life suits him at the moment...obviously circumstances can change but "he would not be the first defender out the door".........don't know what last bit meant but guy said he had promised not to pass on something he had been told and I can understand that as he has to earn a living

I'd imagine Shotton will be the first defender out the door.

OK then. Traore? Not good enough for barca and villa? It does happen you know. Teams let players go and they end up good 

 

Traore left Barcelona because he wanted a massive pay rise and they weren't willing to give him it at that time.  He left Villa because he was on big money, they'd been relegated and wanted shot of him.  I know people go on like Traore is a superstar but this season is the first season that he's done anything of note at the top level anywhere.  I do get what you mean, but there are far more players who teams let go and end up being right than there are mistakes.  If the lad is on good money then you have to factor that into how much you want him.

It would be easier getting rid of piles, then getting shot of Gestede.

Or the window, whichever is quickest.

So Shotton has sold up his house up here and bought a new one outskirts of Stoke. Club have the option of extending for another yr which they were considering... the injury has caused issues as both Wigan and Stoke were keen before then. If club extends he will just live at Rockcliffe hotel.

It’s been mentioned that Shotton is on fairly big wages and if that’s true I can’t see the club extending. However if we can’t offload him I don’t think we will be bringing in two defenders. He should be back in contention at the start of February so bringing in another two will likely be too much.

Can’t think of a single reason why on Earth we would want to extend Shotton’s contract. Wages too high and a donkey on the pitch, let him go on a free ASAP

to get a fee, agree getting rid would be my first choice but if there's money to be made and we don't end up supporting his next wage etc.

Gazette reporting nothing in Oxford links.

Not surprised. Not a fan of him tbh. Honestly don't think we need much. Got players coming back too so be even less need. Summer is the one where we will see some overhauling on the squad.

I didn't realise we'd moved Mitchell Curry and Sam Stubbs away from their Scottish loans.

Curry is now at Gateshead and Sam Stubbs is in the Eredivisie with Alan Pardews ADO Den Haag. They both snuck by me.

    • Hi everyone and I hope all are doing as well as can be under the circumstances? Still no sign of this nightmare abating for a while yet. Plenty of examples of people still not understanding the social distancing rules or maybe defying the advise or instruction. Plenty of conspiracy theories going around and certainly G5 towers being damaged because of it. Where will it end I wonder as I would not be surprised to see further examples of social unrest down the line. Are any of you feeling the brunt of the reality of COVID 19 or know of friends, family that are going through it, if so hopes of a pull through are sent to you? So much time on our hands now, use it well and take good care of yourselves. 
    • Wonder who Sky sports would employ to slate boro if Keith Andrews goes...🤔
    • As is typical of the FAI Robbie Keane signed a 4 year deal at the time that McCarthy signed a 2 year deal so he still has a contract. However it is understood that Stephen Kenny does not want him in the senior set up. Kenny wishes to work with Keith Andrews as his assistant and Damien Duff as coach.
    • Hello everyone, Hope you are all well, I see ROI have bought forward  theyu21 boss appointment as boss of senior teams to replace Mick McCarthy. Does anyone know if that means Robbie Keane also left? Cant find anything other than FA thanking Mick and his staff for they work.
