January transfer window 19/20 season Post Mortem

Recommended Posts

All deals to sell to Leeds need to be agreed then have a 30% DLT added to the deal ( dirty Leeds tax) So a £10m deal becomes £13 etc

same thing should be done to all sales to divisional rivals when deals involve key players.

Won't happen anyway, Leeds are looking to strengthen their attacking options not replace

The entire conversation was a bit tongue-in-cheek, I'm just surprised that anyone wouldn't accept that deal if it was realistically available.

I'm still surprised at how much people rate Bamford on here.

The bar for strikers over the last decade or so is awfully low - is it really surprising that people rate Bamford highly, when he probably is up there in the conversation for best striker we've had in years?

I'm surprised people on here still don't realise he's far better than what we have now. And the best championship striker we've had for years. But hey.

That's not a high bar.

He's the best striker we've had in the Championship in the entire decade we've been here, in my opinion. We've had a bunch of relatively high scoring strikers during the past decade, Emnes, McDonald, Bamford and Britt. I think Bamford sits at the top of that list.

I think how much people rate Bamford is quite bizarre also. It certainly isn't a hands down decision between Britt and Bamford.

In fact between the 2 their goalscoring records in the championship are remarkably similar. Bamford has 55 in 147 where Britt has 65 from 169, meaning Britts is marginally better. However, I know people are going to say for at least 15-20 of those games Bamford didn't play as a striker but Assombalonga played more under Pulis which is even more of a disadvantage. On a side note, I know Pulis and a number of his staff really didn't see eye to eye with Assombalonga but I can't blame Britt for being a bit annoyed at the tactics being employed which didn't suit his or most strikers games.

 

I personally think Britt is a better goalscorer than Bamford but Bamford is a more intelligent player. Britt misses more than Bamford granted but he puts himself in those situations to score/miss a lot more than Bamford does also.

 

Anyhow sorry for sidetracking the thread further I just think the tunnel vision related to Bamford at times is barmy!

Got to wonder what these journalists do all day to make stuff up....

All they are challenged to do is create a sellable story.

I can’t believe people don’t rate him based on his record alone,  which would have been more flattering had he been given more starts and in his rightful position. 
I rate him as one the best we have had since being in the Championship and possibly, had he been given better support we might well have been in the Premiership. 
On that note, I want to add the championship is were we are best suited.

I love Kike as much as the next Boro fan but I'd take Paddy every time.

Kike was in my opinion totally underrated.

    • I said that it’s “foreseeable” that she could have made it up. That’s a completely different thing to the way that you have interpreted it, which triggered you into attacking me. Again, your reaction is what I was pushing back against; that of someone instinctively jumping on Randolph as being guilty based upon, so far, unfounded allegations. The police will investigate and the CPS will decide whether a prosecution is warranted. Up until then, any public lynching of Randolph is dangerous. Please read my above post about how thorough the CPS are with high profile domestic abuse allegations, especially when compared to other areas of the law. If he is charged and subsequently found guilty then I will be equally strong in my condemnation. Your view is based entirely upon his ex telling the truth. My view is based upon no one knowing who is telling the truth, and trusting a police investigation to come to the bottom of it. I’m confident that my approach is fairer and more reasonable than your lynch mob approach.
    • First part, I have no doubt that he didn't want those players in January.  The players he did want weren't exactly a guarantee of success however.  But putting that to one side, we signed lots of players in the summer and we won 4 games out of 27.  I don't know what was going on behind the scenes and who was bringing in players etc but I see no reason to think that the January transfer window would have seen an improvement in our form if we'd signed the likes of Jese or Bojan.  So no, January wasn't his downfall in my opinion. Second part, to me as a fan, being crap in one league is no different to being crap in another league was my point.  You might love the idea of watching us lose in the Premier League rather than the Championship but I don't.  Losing is losing and playing badly is playing badly.  Who gives a crap what league you're in when you're doing that?  I don't, makes absolutely no difference to me at all.  The last two Premier League seasons we've had have been two of the worst seasons in my life.  If you're saying that Karanka could come in, make us play better in this league then yeah I think he probably could, he certainly couldn't do much worse.  But aren't we looking for more?  Maybe it's just me because whenever we have these conversations I seem to be one of the few saying it but I want to see a good team, playing good football and being as successful as we can be.  I don't believe Karanka did that with us so I'm not pining for him in the way that others are and I don't think that Woodgate doing a bad job means I want to accept a repeat of what happened while Karanka was here.
    • Can we not just all agree that our last ten managers have all been rubbish and probably the ten before them. 
    • I understand that but my point is if you're rubbish then you're rubbish.  I've got no problem with saying that Karanka is a better manager than Woodgate because I'm certain that he is and if he was here with this squad then we'd be higher up the league table.  I'm just saying that we were rubbish when Karanka was sacked, he wasn't unlucky or anything, we were rubbish.
    • For teams like us the average points per game each season in the Championship is much higher than in the Premier League. Look at Burnley’s recent points in the Championship vs Premier League. Getting promoted from the Championship requires roughly double the number of points per season (slightly different per game as over 46 games as opposed to 38) compared to avoiding relegation from the Premier League. It’s on that basis that I’m saying form between the Championship and the Premier League is incomparable.
