Summer Transfer Window

Twist it all you like. Think I've been clear I enough explaining the difference. 

 Most the teams we beat in that run clearly had issues. We still got comfortably beat by Fulham and couldn't break down Palace or beat Spurs reserves. But apparently that's okay as we beat Man United who were on a come down from the champions league 

Compare Tosun and Walcott under Alladyce to under Silva. Last season Tosun looked like a headless chicken and Walcott wasn't utilised often enough. Blame Walsh for signing him, I don't care, point I'm making is Alladyce got more out of those two players. 

Stats look similar but over 90 minutes he played better for Alladyce. Like I say above he looked like a headless chicken under Silva. I'm not saying Alladyce is the messiah, just that he knew how to use Walcott and Tosun better. 

It’s not hard Pete. U have a fast winger and  a striker that needs said wingers. God forbid what would have happened if Sam would have stayed . That wasn’t Sam with a point to prove ala Bolton. He was padding out his pension and used us accordingly

I'll be crucified for saying this but since we missed on Zouma I think our CB cover should be Gary Cahill on a free. Ideally one yr contract but we have to go to two yrs. He'd bring a certain mentality to the dressing room which Holgate and Mina could benefit from. Certainly has enough in him to fill in for a few weeks if need be. Most importantly allows us to chase dynamic attacking players.

To be honest, I’d be taking him in any case, but more as a 4/5th CB option, purely for the influence in the dressing room.

Based on what? He literally hasn't played premier league football since 17/18 season. That's a very long time, absolutely zero foundation to that claim, I would presume it would be quite the opposite. He will have lost the pace of the league, nevermind age taking its toll. Those few weeks you mention, are they worth the fortune he will want? Nevermind the signing on fee.

A major no from me soz.

I think Aaron is right in that it would be a risk but if you could get him training with the team and he did alright then I wouldnt be against a year of Cahill. Although I would question why we just didnt do more to keep Jags for another year.

Can someone work out how much we've received so far for players and how much we've spent on them? I know we're currently at a profit but I'm interested to know how much. I can't find an accurate figure for how much we sold Vlasic for.

spent 30m so far (22 gomes 8 delph)

sold 65.5m (2 robinson 12 vlasic 22.5 lookman 29 gana)

galloway sambou and williams are negligible other than wages as fees haven't been mentioned

Galloway and Sambou are free transfers. Think we’re getting around £2m for Williams.

Kean comes in we are breaking even. Winger £30-£40 mill, centre mid £30 mill, centre back £30 mill and a right back? So that’s about £100 mill to spend. Can’t see us getting much back in sales from now on 

We are not spending 100 Mill! Stop dreaming! Lol

Yes but he thought we would spend 100 Mill on top of Kean. (Net spend) 

If we somehow manage to get a centre half as well then I’d expect us to. 

I think we’ll spend over £100m in the next week regardless. 

With Kean, that midfielder from Mainz, a centre back and a winger it could be more like £130m pretty easily.

That Midfielder from Mainz I think you mean Jean-Philppe Gbamin,  just read that he played centre half for two years till he moved to D MF . He could probably cover for the centre half positions if needed.

Would prefer him to Lemina,  but we should go all out for Zaha, if we throw in Mc Carthy it should swing the deal cos Palace want him.

I’m not sure throwing McCarthy in the deal would be a deal breaker bill. We have two recognised centre backs and Mina likes an injury. No way are we going to sign a midfielder to cover a centre back position in a league he’s never played in before. We must still be negotiating for Zouma otherwise Marco would have said the deal is dead let’s move on. Maybe lampard will get Cahill back as a free agent as back up?  We definitely need a centre back either way. I’ve said before Jonathan tah would be my ideal signing. If not him maybe a try for lascelles at Newcastle. Lots of fringe players we could offer them

In what regard? 

In respect of making bad news appear less bad. It just seems a bit strange that we hadnt heard much on the transfer front and then on one day we get 3 big bits of transfer news on the same day we sell Gana and then it goes quiet again. 

Im not saying we wont get these players in btw.

cynical.  it was journos trying to get clicks.  the minute gana was gone they knew we needed a replacement so out come 3 replacements.  whether true or not they are getting clicks

Broadhead has gone to burton after signing a new deal 

Well we definitely need another winger then. We have three established first teamers. I don't think Silva/Brands would let Broadhead go unless we had something in the pipeline.

Seems like we're getting a striker in Kean, and the CB/CDM problem is potentially solved by Gbamin. A winger has to be our next priority.

Buzzing about this - one of my local teams and loved going to see them when in league one (stopped going when in Championship) so will definitely get down to a few on none EFC weekends next season.

Getting exited now. Hearing Ziyech from Ajax could happen. Really good player. We still have time you sell to European teams as their windows close after ours. Then there’s always China. 

I thought the Chinese window was closed, hence the Bale tantrum.

I’ve been worrying about FFP and us spending too much. Then I read it only comes into effect if you are in Europe competions? Maybe this is the time to buy and spend what we need to then we can comply with that after the fact? If we spend large this summer. Add the young Brazilian in January then we need one or two if that every window

Bit depressing that we've not sold a single one of the deadwood in the squad this summer. The only sales are players that wanted to leave.  

We’ll be having to wait until until their contracts run out because they’re either absolutely shite or on huge wages.

Can’t see how you can possibly say that!

We’ve managed to offload Jags,Ashley Williams, Joe Williams, Vlasic, Lookman and Galloway

Granted we still have a lot of shite to get rid of but the window hasn’t closed yet so I don’t think we are doing too badly myself

Even if the window closed tonight I think this would have to go down as a successful window

Not saying we haven't had a good window. Buying wise, and loans for the youngsters have been first rate. But not a single buyer for any of the shite, our only outgoing transfers have been commodities. If we aren't going to sell, may as well let them leave on a free and be done with it.
