At the end of every window we have frustrated members questioning their fellow posters, it's a rumour thread, some pan out, some don't but they post in sincerity imo.

 

Thanks ladies & gents for your input.  UTB

Which sounds like really bad planning by those who set such deadlines to me...

Is Reading that good?

well Reading will have been training with the first team this season, he clearly hasn't done enough to impress Woodgate

My thoughts on the window;

Financially we have done pretty well, we've shifted out a high earner and have brought a direct replacement in, on what can only be assumed, much lower wages. We've also added players to the squad without being tied down with the financial burden of their wages past this coming summer.

In terms of the players we have brought in, I can't help but feel a little unimpressed, but am happy to be proved wrong. Nmecha and Morrison both have experience in this league, but haven't exactly set it alight in the past. After seeing Nmecha, it does look like he could be a useful player for us however. Stojanovic is a relative unknown quantity, but he does have plenty of first team experience, and hopefully has his best years ahead of him. Moukoudi is again an unknown quantity, but plays in a position we are currently lacking some depth in. Roberts looks like he will be a very important player for us once he is back from injury. All in all we have added depth to an incredibly thin squad.

Long term strategy wise through there is definitely a lot of room to improve. As most of these players will be back off to their parent clubs, leaving us once again needing to strengthen in the same positions come the summer. If the rumours are true and we have options to extend Nmecha and Robert's loan deals until the end of next season that will go some way in helping us come the summer.

we've traded supermarkets by the sound of it...lost a Liddle and gained a Morrison

If only we can sign somebody called Hinton before the window closes, 😂

I think our financial position means that a player with the name Aldi just abit too expensive.

Looks like Gibson is staying at Burnley. What a mess that move has been. Wasted 2 years of his career.

If he has any sense he will do what he needs to do to get out of that club.

I loved Hintons!  They were the Aldi of their time without the foreign influence

looks like the summer thread is going to be busy. as I see it we have 

Pears, Stojanovic, Mejias

Spence, Dijksteel, Coulson, Bola

Fry, Woods

Mcnair, Saville, Wing, Tav, Browne

Britt, Fletcher, Walker

Lots to do.

Burnley forcing him to stay there and not play for yet another few months will surely only harden his intention to come back here. I’m sure if he could turn back time he’d have never left us in the first place.

Totally how is the club actually going to pull the right signings off required for a top 6 push in the summer.

I'd say if we tie Howson and Ayala up on new deals that will help lessen the amount of work we would need to do. 

Plus we will hopefully have the young lads, that have gone on loan, coming back with half a season of first team football under their belts, looking to push for a place.

    • Great news OMG it will be good to keep the PL going it's a great feature and good fun. MM you underplay you're efforts, fantastic job for the last few seasons, I'm sure on behalf of the forum a big thank you for all your hard work and frequent updates. I hope you continue to take part.  
    • Are we ready for a relegation battle? No. Are we more ready for a relegation battle than the teams around us (which is perhaps the more important question)? Time will tell. I have my concerns, though. Charlton in particular came out of pre-season much more strongly than we did, and we are kind of restarting the season again after another preseason.  I'm not confident that Woodgate has the managerial experience to get us to be where we need to be in terms of preparation and match sharpness by the end of this mid-season preseason.
    • My worry is our goalscoring, if teams get in front we'll then struggle & with the new rules of 5 subs per game teams will just kill games We are as bad as the other 5, 6 teams at the wrong end with not much breathing space between us all, whoever starts late in the mini bottom league will go down  Defensively we're fine, IMHO, 
    • Didn’t realise Taylor was 30. Thought he was a young up-and-coming
    • Agree. I think a lower end PL team will take a punt on him as a 2nd or 3rd choice striker. They got little to lose. Free transfer and if they offer him even 15k it will probs triple his current wages.
