The January Transfer Window 2019!

Recommended Posts

Expect lots of activity in the summer. Hopefully some of the loanees (Hoedt, Cedric, Carillo etc) will turn into permanent transfers which will raise cash for incoming transfers, and RH will get a couple of players he wants in. Given how bloated the squad had become and the poor quality signings of the past couple of years its going to take a while to sort it all out. Just getting players who don't want to be here away from the club has to be positive. Would be nice for it to happen quickly, but we have already blown the Van Dijk money on mediocrity so have to sell players to raise the cash.

Austin has turned down a move to a championship side according to Talksport. Wants to stay and fight for his place rather than move to championship

 

Austin wants to stay in the Premier League.

SFC want to sell rather than loan out.

No Premier League club will (at time of writing) offer to buy him.

 

We have a stalemate of Theresa May/EU proportions. Who will blink first?

Wanting to stay and continue with the trappings of his Premier League contract is pretty commendable actually.

 

I changed it for you.

Imagine if we were in the Championship and a PL team came in for our top scorer :lol:

 

Would have been gone on 1st January

 

Like when we sold Lambert?

I think it would be different nowdays to be honest. Lallana, Lambert, Morgan. All off if we had a sniff of money.

We didn't have wee Ross, Ralph and Les in charge during those times.

11 years since we cleared out the 'deadwood' of Rasiak and Skacel on deadline day, then nearly got relegated. I'd say that was a worse January window at the time.

Can't wait for the summer when krugar still claims we have no money.
Any sensible chief would say we have no money. Simply to try and minimize we have to pay for people.

Yes but we don't practice what we preach. We ask for £10 million for Austin and expect to get Adams on the cheap.

Is not difficult.

 

When you sell, put your offer price high and people barter you down.

 

When you buy, put your offer price low and people barter you up.

Or, just price too high, and refuse to buy high, and end up with nothing happening.

 

Which now looks most likely.

Crook says any incomings is now very unlikely.

 

Ie. There aren't any new press rumours and the window is closing soon.

What a load of cack. Arguably, we're pretty exposed in key positions. Like defending and attacking.

If we don't sign anyone what are you all going to do ?

 

1) Trust Ralph as he said he is happy with squad

2) Moan about Ralph being wrong saying should be buying as you know better than him

3) Blame RK and Wilson

4) Moan and whinge about it every time we lose/draw/concede

5) Blame Les

6)

7)

Actually dislike Charlie Austin even more now. It's all his fault.

No player is ever going to take a pay cut. If we're serious about getting rid then we'd have to subsidise his wages. It feels like we're not really serious about getting rid

I still don't understand letting Cedric go on loan. By all means let him go but he should've only left on a permanent deal with the proceeds funding a replacement. There could of course be a late incoming transfer but why leave ourselves sort in an area for which we have little cover to save buttons by letting Cedric go out on loan? Bizarrely he could be back in the summer!

I'm readying the incontinence pads as we speak as it has been a really poor window so far.

 

What gives me some hope is that Adam's Blackmore and Leitch have not yet tweeted we are done (yet).

 

Even when Leitch tweeted in the summer we were done we signed Ings, who he had previously said we were not interested in.

 

Alex Crook has also said we are unlikely to do anything which gives me more hope than anything.

Don't want to see any more good money thrown at any more wasters,but it appears very little has been learnt from last season.

I really hope Ralph is truly on board with the current scenario.

 

He'll have total confidence he can keep this squad up, I've no doubt. And he will.

 

I'm not that bothered now but the summer is big. No excuses then, we have a good manager and we need to back him with 2 or 3 quality signings.

F*cking Mickey Mouse.

 

When you’re in a relegation battle you don’t make your squad weaker.

 

W*nkers.

 

(Hope to be proved wrong).

 

They were nothing but deadwood mate

 

 

Apparently

We've got rid of the deadwood, which was what really needed. One or two additions would have been nice but no big deal, we're not going down. Regroup in the summer, get back to where we ought to be.

Even if we were midtable, i doubt we would be throwing money around in this window because the players that are really wanted are not available, unless crazy money appears.

How’s it going anyway? Are we close to signing anyone?

 

How long before I can break out the "Foo Kin No Wan" Korean signing news?

 

Smith Rowe gone to Leipzig. JKA free to leave now?

 

He's a wide midfielder isn't he?

Heard the loan price was just his plane fare over and we are currently waiting for permission from Mr Gao to pay the £215.

Fingers crossed we can get this one over the line in time.

All those posters imploring people to wait until the end of the window are quite quiet...
They're probably busy polishing the medals that will be awarded to the self-congratulatory "told you so" brigade... ;)
