Official Summer 2019 Transfer Rumours Thread

Recommended Posts

Wilks is a good signing for them. Talented, and pace to burn.

All rumours. Yet used as a stick to beat the club with!  Love our fans. 

They are rumours. But since taking over Chansiri has sold 1 player, not enough income from player sales. That is a fact, not beating our club with a stick. 

Too proud to take loss on Rhodes when most can see he is not the player he was. Whatever the truth was about Emanuelson is, it was a waste of money. Stockpiled strikers when we needed a young replacement for Loovens. Took 2 players from Burnley at the end of their careers and paid them a fortune for 2 years.

 

DC still has a lot to learn.

But the root of the problem, is agents and players taking Chansiri for a mug. He needed expert advice from the get go and it seems he lost trust in the commitee pretty soon, when the ultimate leaches latched onto him...big deal players like Abdi, Urby, Jones, Rhodes etc...we'll still be feeling the effects of them today

We paid too much in wages and it is why they take some moving. In some cases thousands per week more than they could have got anywhere else.

All about the price. DC needs to let the football men do the negotiations. Norwich want him but not at 7million.

 

Lad just signed form LCFC from Luton for £8m - never played above League 1.

The reason they are not linked is because we are not realistic over the prices. Its rumoured we want 8m for Joao. 7m for Rhodes and 14m for Forestieri.

 

And I would hazard a guess we would want about 25m for Reach.

 

Didn't we turn down a bid for David Jones only for him to never kick a ball for us again.

 

If we dont want to sell a player then fair enough put a ridiculous price tag on him. But if we do then make sure we accept the first reasonable bid that comes along. Otherwise all we are going to do is hoard players on stupid contracts then release them on a free.

 

We need to wake up a bit.....

It is wages the players are on what is the problem.

 

Somebody wanted Jones on loan. We thentold them wages and that was it. Basically we would have had to pay 80% of wage if he had gone on loan. 

 

We paid too much for many players and that is what is hurting us.

To sell players someone has to want to buy

Someone on Twitter has shared the fact he is sponsoring K Lee this season, so he has obviously signed.

Sorry if pope dead.

Whether there have been offers or not, this regime has got itself into a position where it cannot or will not sell. It is unfeasible to think we have not had offers for just Jack Hunt. 

The wage structure meant that some players weren't prepared to leave.

FF refused to play, within two months was given a payrise.

Weak leadership and a lack of understanding of his environment, but he didn't learn quickly enough.

Carlos mentioned one for Reach (although I’m glad we kept him) 

 

Forestieri to Norwich perhaps?

 

I had heard Hull made a bid for Bannan and Burnley for Lees a couple of years ago.

 

Cardiff for Westwood.

 

Not saying they were wrong to reject all those btw but they are the ones that have been suggested since 2015.

You need to go back to the beginning mate and read through - I would. You've missed so much, it's the journey of a lifetime.

Not the type of midfielder we need really. We already have Lee and Bannan.
