Summer Transfer Window 2019


Recommended Posts

Watching Villa last night, I thought Mings was excellent at CB. We could certainly do a lot worse than taking at look at him (Stephens and Hodet as an example). Quick, strong and good on the ball would also offer good cover at LB.

 

Certainly not the leader at the back we need (I’d take him and another at CB), but would improve us without a doubt.

32 games in 4 years? Injury prone or just not picked?

Yes.

 

Mings has done his ACL at least twice, and when he has played for Bournemouth, he's been pretty shocking. And ill disciplined - got a long ban for stamping on Ibrahimovich's head. So they've generally not selected him unless they had to.

 

Moving down to the championship, he seems to have found his level. Not saying he's much worse than our collection of catastrophes, but he's not likely to be an improvement.

Chances of a firesale to reduce Gao's debt further, with a few average sops brought in for peanuts? Mid to good.

 

I'm sure clubs are just lining up to offer us money for our talented super stars. Teams across the league are probably casting envious eyes over our fantastic players thinking just what an improvement these, almost relegated twice in two seasons, players would make to their squads....

A firesale, with a few average sops brought in, would improve our squad significantly. I'd be very happy with this. The only players we have who would be difficult to replace would be hojberg and redmond.

Fire sale lol does he need £20 that badly

Who do you think we could sell we finished 16th

Yet we don’t want hardly anyone from the relegated clubs!!

There are probably 2-3 players with value.

The rest we will struggle due to wages

Joe Aribo linked again. Available on a free.

 

5live last night mentioned that Man City were keen on him as a squad player so he must have something about him.

 

Worth a watch in the Playoffs and low risk signing so could be a good option for us - no real downside.

Just saw this link as well, Dusic. Has definitely been mentioned before.

 

GOAL report Rangers, Celtic interested too.

Would much rather have Tomori from Derby

Was he linked before then? Excellent if that's the case. When I posted about him on here previously I didn't think we'd be looking, assuming that story is accurate (more likely just an agent drumming up trade). He's a real talent. The best player in League 1 if you ask me. A two league jump would be no mean feat, but at worst we could loan him out for a season. Got to grab him now.

Yeah, he was def linked last season.

 

He's an interesting one because, like you say, it's a BIG jump up from 2 leagues down.

So was Dele Alli though... all comes down to opportunity, 1st team exposure and the quality of the coach. Must be worth a punt

Don't rate Mings. He was no good for the Cherries.

 

Ideally, we need a CB with an experienced head and some leadership. We then have two of those (new guy, plus Yoshi) to help bring Bednarek and Vestergaard along. There's go to be someone knocking around the Bundesliga that Ralph could identify?

Clearly agent chatter trying to find him a new club. No interest from us I would imagine.

 

It’s weird isn’t it? I get that this is what an agent is supposed to do, but when the link is clearly made up (Ralph says recently we are going back to signing players we can develop and sell on, bolasie is 29 and on circa £70k pw) I’d be pretty p*ssed off with him if I was Bolasie. At least make up a rumour that is plausible?

Surely you just go with Everton and West Ham? Obviously Everton doesn't work here so the best rumour is West Ham.

 

You could also add a bit of intrigue by saying that Villa are preparing a "warchest" and want to spaff some of it on Bolasie if they win the play off final.

 

Where do I get my agent's licence?

Niklas Stark, perhaps. Although I prefer Hertha teammate Jordan Torunarigha as a real prospect for the future, as we're desperate for pace in the back line. Desperate.

 

Personally, I'd be happy to sack off pretty much all our centre backs bar probably Bednarek and bring in two young, fast guns like Fikayo Tomori and Torunarigha and try and develop them. Yes, they'll make mistakes due to their inexperience, but our current centre backs make loads of mistakes anyway - what's their excuse?

 

We can't afford the "finished article". Bidding for the most mediocre of them starts at around £30m these days, so we either invest in potential, or blow our budget on established dregs like Vestergaard.

You’re right, he was bang average at Bournemouth despite joining with high expectations. His time was hit with injured (he done his ACL) and he was in and out of the team. He was also playing at LB.

 

By all accounts, since joining Villa and being played at CB he’s been superb.

 

Agree we need a commanding leader at CB, but the jury is still out on a lot of our CB’s

Vestergard - hit and miss, for me, too slow for the PL and the way Ralph wants to play.

Bednerak - looks great in a 3, been disappointed with him as a 2 (could be down to the squad as a whole though)

Yoshida - is what he is, great servant, getting on a bit and Not good enough to be relied on as a first choice.

Stephens - just dreadful.

 

I’d like to see us get rid of 2 of the above and bring another 2 in. One thing Mings does have, which we don’t have in that back line, is pace.

Mings is one of THE biggest C Unts in English football. Solid "No thank you" from me.

Dael Fry would be a much better buy. He is the best central defender in the Championship but on the downside he got badly injured towards the end of the season.

Don’t know if already mentioned but The Sun linking us to Bolasie

First Aribo, now Bolasie. It's like the papers have been reading my posts on the transfer window threads. If Bolasie has shown any signs of the pace and power prior to his injury its a no brainer for me, but if not then we should stay well away, sadly.

Pulis said out for 12 weeks. That is one hell of a torn hamstring. Good player though.

Alan Nixon suggesting we're keen on Mooy.

 

As as Aussie I'd be pleased, but I can't really see him in a Ralph side. Although Mooy > Moi, I'd like to think we could be better yet.

 

See how he goes tonight if he plays.

 

 

From what I've seen of Mooy I think he'd be a great fit personally. Hope we go get him.

yeh! and we should also get de bruyne for our midfield, and buy Mane back to play up front with Kane. Maybe get de Gea in goal, although he is off the boil, he still has potential?

 

I'm guessing you're a "lets get Gary Cahill" type fan.

Is he not the one type of player that we don't really need though? I haven't seen him enough to be sure but strikes me as an all-round good energy general midfielder, not dissimilar to Hojbjerg, JWP, Lemina and maybe even Romeu. Perhaps he's capable of playing a bit further forward but doesn't strike me as a proper attacking midfielder.

Quite like Mooy but absolutely not to type of player we should be spending money on, there are enough other positions which should be a priority. And if we're buying a midfielder, it should be an upgrade on Romeu, not another player who can play in the position slightly further forward IMO
