Summer Transfer Window 2019


Recommended Posts

My predictions for this summer

2 Centre backs we need to spend big on

Lewis Dunk

Pontus Jannson

 

Harry Reed will replace Romeu

Che Adams in to replace Austin

Boufal to come back

Norwegian right back in to support Valery

Lots of others by the wayside out the door

 

Very close to what I would hope for.

Plus I would want to bring in a fast striker option if Boufal is not good enough.

Finally, If we can offload Ings and get a replacement it would be great.

Watched Leeds v Villa yesterday and paid particular attention to Kalvin Phillips and what a decent young player he looks to be who could play in a variety of roles in the midfield.

Centre Back wise, we should go hell for leather to try and sign Willi Orban from Leipzig. He has been linked to us before, and my German mate tells me he is a commanding presence at the back who is pretty good at heading goals at corners too.

A couple of pacy forwards needed too, and I rather get the feeling that Ralph has some candidates in mind here, but £35m for Agustin who we know has been linked will not happen, so maybe there is mileage in this French chap Aye.

Leipzig have just qualified for the Champions' League again. Seems pretty unlikely that their best players will swap that for scrapping around in the lower reaches of the Premier League.

But Wages turn a players head?

One good season in the premier would treble his wages even more as he would be in demand from even bigger clubs.

Certainly understand your point, but he has been at Leipzig for a few seasons now and maybe they have hit their ceiling in doing what they are doing - Not sure they can push on towards Munich or Dortmund as the top 2 and they are losing their star striker to Bayern this year.

 

Maybe he would fancy a new challenge on bigger wages and a chance to be reunited with Ralph..

Leipzig are also about to bring in a new manager, Nagelsmann, who will probably want to bring in players to build his team. I wouldn't rule this out.

 

Caution though - Vestergaard was considered one of the better CB's in the Bundesliga, and he's not really been a dominant presence for us this season.

Ralph H - "this is the best league in the world; I am so glad I came here."

If he can get transfer targets to think that to, we can get players in.

Was he though? Or was that just by Les Reed?

When did that happen? Would be rubbish piece of business if we were to sell him. I'm not worried.

 

Kruegar said on more than one occasion (as has Ralph H) that elite clubs are and have been watching Hoj.

Obviously why they would let that 'slip'

Obviously if a big bid comes in for him, we won't turn it down.

 

I'd be surprised however if any elite club wants him just yet - he's been great on the whole for us, but still makes too many rash decisions for me. If he has a consistent season next year, I think he'll go after then.

Who want's some rumours?

 

Welcome back pal - was worried that ALWAYS had you locked up in his dungeon after pm’ing you all those pics and meetup requests. But looks like you’re fine. Hope you’ll be sticking around for a busy window and sharing any news.

Agree on this seasons form you'd have to think JWP and Bednarek would be in more demand the Hoj.

Can someone explain to me why Lewis Dunk is so highly rated on here? He seems pretty average to me; he's playing in a team that defend deep where all he has to do is head it away.

surely we can get Augustin for 20m- 25. considering he's not playing any football for them.? we see how it works with our own players that don't play first team, we usually have to take less money if we want to sell.

 

tbh che Adams will probably also cost 20 m+ now especially with the amount of clubs looking at him. I still think jka looks a lot better so really hoping we go for this.

I like looking at the lower leagues for possibles. The way David Brooks has played this season shows that there is still genuine talent in the football league that can make the jump (as the likes of Lallana did for us of course).

 

Joe Aribo might be that next gem. He looked absolutely terrific when I saw Charlton this year. He has brilliant feet, great vision and surprising strength for a `gangly' type build. The only thing that let him down was his shooting - he seemed to scuff everything - which reminded me of Lallana. I still think we have a lack of flair in the final third and he might offer us that. A two league jump might seem crazy, I know, but this guy just looked head and shoulders above anyone at that level and I think he might make the leap...OK, it's too big a gamble and one for the future, but watch him get snapped up in the summer if they fail to make the play offs. This guy is (as the kids say) a `baller'.

 

Maybe I need to focus on the championship. I really liked the look of Harry Wilson (on loan at Derby from Liverpool) when they played us. Another with obvious ability and the much needed flair in the final third. Might not quite have the pace or power we need to go with that talent, but you can never have too much quality. Big gamble as I am sure he will very expensive. Jamal Lewis at Norwich looked decent too in the Norwich games I saw, but that ship has sailed I suppose.

 

One player I have always wanted to list on this type of thread is John Marquis. I go to watch Donny a few times a year and over the last three years or so he is always impressed me. Great first touch (which is probably the most important thing to determine if you can play at our level), leads the line well and gets in good positions to score goals. He's a one in two scorer, all be it at a lower level. He's not Ricky Lambert, but everyone says we need a target man and I have always wondered if he could replicate at a higher level. OK, so this isnt going to work, but I am posting this anyway.

100%. At times him and Duffy have been like keystone cops defending. Not good enough on the ball either which i anticipate that RH will be demanding next season

So it's just a little wish list from your latest football manager, full of random unknowns and a couple of pointlessly unrealstic options, just on there in case - out of a random situation, they become avaliable. Sule, i mean ffs. :lol:

What don’t you grasp about “rumours”? I don’t play football manager, game is ruined, like ya brain.

Austin has definitely been told he can look for a new club, I'd also heard Long too. Both of these were on Saturday so recent news. Also heard we're going "balls out" for a quality striker.

Jean-Kévin Augustin??

didn't we sell Gabbi in January? If we can sell him again in the summer then that's a great piece of business

I should have mentioned that he's out of contract this summer, so will be available for bobbins.

Let's hope that's true. Should've done that straight after Pelle left. But better late than never.

Selling Ings before we have bought Jim, that's novel. Treat your trove with the contempt it deserves.

Hard to take you seriously as Gabbiadini was sold in January. He is not a Southampton player. He is not out on loan.

Sounds like a more technical Antonio. If he’s ooc as well then worth a look. Marquis I’ve seen play for Torquay and stood out in L2, but I’d like to see him get a run in the Champ first.

 

Interesting info from Eric, not surprised about Austin but thought Long might see out his contract. This little run of scoring might get him a buyer though.

 

Swansea’s winger - Daniel James - he would be one I’d be targeting. Pace and takes people on. Looks good technically when I’ve seen him as well. Maupay at Brentford another and Bowen at Hull. Che Adams might be too expensive now.
