Summer Transfer Window 2019


Recommended Posts

Luca Jovic looked a right handful tonight for Eintract Frankfurt although after a bit of skim reading looks like a lot of teams are interested
Somehow I don't think we'll be in for the most in demand young striker in European football on the market. Barcelona or Madrid.

Yeah, I made a dog's dinner of the conversation from 1.78m, which is what Wikipedia claims he is. 5.8 feet is not the same as 5' 8". He's 5' 10" according to that - but I'm more than prepared to believe he's taller, having never seen him (or maybe I have but didn't notice him).

 

A tall left sided centre back with pace is something we could seriously use (albeit he sounds like one for the future).

Lots of pace and left footedness there.

Your personal method is irrelevant. Of course (non-shoot out) penalties count in goal tallies.

 

Personally I don't count free kicks either, or headers if you're over 6 foot tall, unfair advantage. Turns out when you minus off penalties and free kicks for messi and headers too for ronaldo, neither are actually that good.

Mitrovic has scored 11 goals this season last bloody player to do that for us was Mane/Pelle he also has three assists and is first in the PL for Aerial battles won Imagine having a striker upfront who could actually win some headers when the ball is pumped aimlessly forward from our back line. I don't now if Mitrovic is the answer or if we would ever spend 30 million on him.... but I really want us to get a forward that can win the ball in the air, hold it up with his back to goal to bring other players into the game and get his head on our crosses to turn them into goals (ideally with a mean penalty and free kick ability)…..god I miss having Lambert upfront.

Us seemingly moving away from the Lambert/Pelle model of striker was one of many misguided moves we made.

SSN reporting Man Utd close to agreeing £15m fee with Swansea for Daniel James.
Not that we would likely have got him, but this has to be bad news for clubs like ours if it happens.

 

This is 'our' market, last thing you want is the big clubs dropping into it and moving for the likes of James, Adams, Bowen etc.

Moving away from Lambert/Pelle type strikers is why we finished 6th in 2016. Pelle got injured, Long replaced him and we ended up with the 2nd best record 2nd half of 2015/16. A one paced lump upfront is the last thing I want, if our defenders punt aimless long balls forward I would rather replace them.

Wierd then that we've had Shane long available since Pelle left and err yeah it's been great.....

I’m sure I read somewhere that Giggs had recommended him to OGS.

 

Great move for the lad from a wage/prestige perspective, though hard to see him being a regular there. Will probably end up out on loan somewhere in the next 12 months.

I do kind of agree with you here.

 

The flip side is that there might be more players available from the big clubs for season long loans - OK, not great for our long-term revenue, but we might get the benefit of a gem or two for a season.

I agree with Mitrovic. Still young enough to improve and something different to what we currently have.

 

I think what we all have to bear in mind is that we have fallen a long way in three years. We finished 17th last season and will finish this season 15th-17th.

 

Someone like Mitrovic would improve our squad, in my opinion.

Agree, it also shows the problem with clubs being able to have such massive squads, they just hoover up everyone who might have some ability, even the ones form lower divisions. I thought there would be competition for him but wasn't expecting it to be Manchester United...

 

I remember a sesaon or two ago I was looking through stats in foreign leagues to see if there might be some players at smaller clubs who could be a target for us - I found someone I'd never heard of before, googled him and he was already linked with Chelsea. The rules (or lack of them) just makes everything harder to compete with the big clubs now unfortunately.

I fully understand why James would go to United (if the rumour is remotely true)

Should he go, give him 2 seasons max before he is loaned out.

 

He will play cup games until they get to latter stages (if they do) and get an odd bench appearance.

 

United need big time players to close the gap to city and the scousers as quickly as possible

I like the look of Tammy Abraham but no idea if we could ever get him.
Wolves (likely Europa League qualifiers) wanted him in January.

 

The player still believes he can make the grade at Chelsea. Given that they've got a transfer ban and only two over the hill strikers in their current squad (and in any case Higuian is only on loan), Abraham might be wise to keep his powder dry for another season or so. Chances may be about to open up.

That James transfer has got a lot of the Patrick Roberts about it, as has been said I wouldn’t be surprised if this is a really bad move for his career

 

Alan Nixon just tweeted that Bournemouth think/thought they had him before the united 'interest'

I would have hoped the Sancho / Hudson Odoi effect would kick in & make young players only move for first team action.

Looks like Austin could be hinting that hes leaving. Not surprised but im wondering if RH has already informed those not in his plans for next season

I thought that it was common knowledge that Ralph had told Austin to find a new club.

His agent said he doesn't want a top club move yet as doesn't want to suffer a loss of game time. Would suit Chelsea etc, but not the elite.

Augustin wasn't in the RBL squad today and I don't think he's injured.

 

He hasn't been in the squad for the last few games, and has been out of the RBL starting 11 for months now.

 

He tends to get 5-10 minutes max in games that RBL are 2/3-0 up in and hasn't scored a league goal since September

 

Either poor form or not fancied at all at Red Bull

Should see the suggested £35m come tumbling down though.

Exactly. Clearly Rangnick the current manager doesn't fancy him as much as Ralph his previous manager for whom his stats were much better. As we well know he wouldn't be the first player to perform better under Ralph than other managers. eg JWP.

 

As you say it should mean that his price comes down and hopefully , if Ralph still wants him, we can get him on the cheap.

austrian media mentioning Thomas Goinginger, 14 goals and 17 assists this season...

Thats quite some surname he has?

 

IMHO we need two strikers plus we are stuck with Ings who I would prefer as a super sub.

Would love Haller who gave Chelsea so much trouble when he came on but I think he’s out of our price range now.

Always wary of stats like that for playing outside the PL ...Moi had 11 goals and 14 assists (plus 2 more goals and 2 assists in the CL) the season before we signed him. Of course the problem is why can't really afford good proven PL players so we have to take a punt on players in other leagues and hope they can step it up.

There are very few clubs who buy 'good proven Premier League' players. Other clubs do manage to sign players from the top leagues in Portugal, France, Germany, or Spain though. I think we'd be better off looking for up and coming players from those leagues instead of 25 year olds who have a great season against lower quality competition.

You might be right, but we have had some success signing players from 'lesser' league in the past- Mane, Pelle, Tadic, Van Dijk etc. Then you look at the likes of Carillo, playing in a better league but not great.

 

I think either way it is a gamble and very much depends on the quality of your recruitment department.

While that is definitely true, it's also (probably) the case where a player who is capable of delivering in the PL will have great numbers in other leagues. Differentiating Suarez from Afonso Alves, or Mane from Elyounoussi (ok Austrian League vs Swiss League but I'm not going to spend more time thinking of equivalents!) is where you have to hope the scouts earn their money.

 

Teji Savanier has pretty impressive stats in Ligue 1 and is playing for Nimes. No idea whether he's got the ability but he's 27 so probably doesn't fit our model anyway.

Was that post just about his hair change. Channeling the Aguero look, if not the Aguero skill set.

We are hardly likely to get any decent players wanting to come to SFC at the moment

 

When you consider where we were 4 years ago under Mopo and then Koeman the drop has been heavy in performances, transfers, club profile, fan optimism and expectations. In everyway the club has declined heavily.

 

On the positives we have a potentially top manager and we still have our premier league status.

 

Hopefully we hit rock bottom when Hughes/Reed we fired and the climb back has started slowly but surely
