Official Summer Transfer Rumours Thread 2020-2021


Recommended Posts

Zohore would be a great signing.  Would think he is out of our price range though and might get some good game time in the prem this season with WBA>

You make 2 plans for each scenario.Its called managing.Its not rocket science.The excuses for Monk and whoever at the club is some times astounding.

Get rid of 4 attackers end of contracts,and have none lined up to come in early for pre season...???...

UTO

Theres no way we were ever going to get a list of 6-8 players all scouted, all negotiated with clubs/agents ready for the start of the season. That would be one list of players for if we stayed up and covid has no effect on finances, another list if we stayed up and covid does have an effect on finances, another list if we were relegated but still allowed crowds in and another list for relegated but not allowed crowds back. Add onto this that the clubs we could be negotiating with would also face these problems but you think theres Potentially 30+ players all sat there chomping at the bit ready to join us it aint going to happen. 

 

Fact is we arent an attractive proposition for any players. We have no money, no chance of promotion, not in a particularly attractive part of the country to live in (for a footballer) our days of paying high wages are gone so agents wont be pushing their players our way, a chairman who (allegedly) micro manages every aspect of the club who will have most likely spent most of the last few months outside the UK. We never started a season  with players in ready to go before the first game when we were throwing money around so quite why you think this season would be any different is beyond me.

Maybe we are getting a bit desperate and have realised that we need to throw a few more ££s at this

Quick read up on Zohore and West Brom don't rate him at all and fans want him off the books.🤣😑

He is a big unit, and warnock got a good tune out of him playing direct as we will be.  WBA tap it about, not his sort of team.

Coventry don’t seem to be having those problems?

The season starts on Saturday.  We could already be effectively down by October if we still have negative points at that stage.

 

Unless you know of some way of postponing our fixtures until the transfer window closes.

 

Our squad currently isn't fit to be competitive.

 

 

FF should have been sold after he refused to get on the coach to Norwich.  That mistake was then compounded by giving him a bumper 4 year contract on big wages.

 

An error I criticised at the time.

Only cheap hookers go down in October

That was his value at the time.

Derby or not.


Obviously it wasn’t otherwise we’d have sold him. Derby were promotion rivals. Easy to talk about how we should’ve sold him in hindsight.

You're right about hindsight but I'm coming at it from the position of wanting him gone since Norwich.

Was pretty obvious they were going up well before the end of the season so that’s half the job straight away. 2 of their signings were also on loan to them last season so they may have been loan to buys upon promotion.

Heard a rumour recently on this now Att following? Obviously a link with Man City which is great. Dont know too much about him other than City signed from Valenica at 16 and highly regard forward.

Is that a recent follow? 
 

Looks to me like he’s been following him for some time.
