January Plans

Recommended Posts

1.  Brands has stated publicly many times he doesn't like the january window

2.  We aren't pushing for top 4 and barely for top 7, saving the money and investing more wisely in the summer is the better long game

3.  Wage bill and transfer spend has been astronomical lately, it needs to even out eventually

4.  We don't have many injuries (for once) so reinforcements for that are not needed

 

 

some or all of the above i figure

Not sussed at all by the lack of signings. Was hoping, however, that there would be more sales. Take advantage of desperate teams. Bolasie would be a great start but Schneiderlin and Browning should be sold. Can we not convert the loans to permanent deals for Sandro, Pennington, Mirallas, Martina and Tarashaj at least? Williams and Garbutt are free agents in the summer.

i'm guessing brands was hoping the loans would help them in the shop window but it doesn't seem to have been beneficial for any of them.  i'm sure it will be a fire sale this summer which teams will be well aware of and we will sell the whole lot for about a quarter to a third of what we paid for them in total.  honestly at this point i'm fine with it because i just want the dead wood gone and an younger squad with promise that Brands can assemble.  I don't even need big money signings.  I'm confident a couple pieces here and there in the summer could really help us.  RB and CM being the big ones we need to sign for me.

We need one big money signing in midfield this player needs to have been there and done it before he needs to be someone the rest of the team would look up to, he needs to be an all rounder be able to tackle defend pass go forward and get the odd goal, and most importantly he needs to be a leader he has to be able to give direction fire fucks into others when needed.

Brands go find he's out there somewhere, and with a RB and CF to follow we won't be far away.

No team will convert the loans into sales early, it’s just not beneficial in any way. Makes no sense at all.

The players may have interested parties, but they are on loan at the moment and aren’t going anywhere. We need to let the loans run down and then make the next step with them.

Unless it's us and Gomes!

We’re still loaning him and Silva said Brands both said they will wait till the end ofhis Liam to make any decision didn’t they? 

Or have I missed something?

Wouldnt mind is getting something sorted there to be honest.

As long as we don’t seel Gana, I can wait till the summer. If we sell him we need to have a replacement come in first.

We don't we will be no worse without him as far as this season goes.

We have Davies who has shown that isn’t the same level, McCarthy that hasn’t played in months. And Benni that’s all but disappeared back to the U23s. 

Last time Gana don’t play we lost 6-2. I would say we need a replacment before we let him go. Regardless of you dating him or not, you must see that we are weak in that department.

If we sold Gana we would be selling our 2nd best midfielder, and the only midfielder we have (other than McCarthy) in that mould who is proven at that level this season.

We need midfielders without selling a member of the starting 11 first.

I would still be tempted with a massive offer because I think it would exceed his value and his importance that team on the assumption that we others lined up and ready to sign to replace him.

Theoretically though this would leave us with a completely new midfield for next season if Gomes doesnt sign, which isnt ideal either.

I've never been out with him in my life and even if we are weak in that department you date him he seems your type, I'm strictly heterosexual darling 💗

I don’t think the signings depend on the manager. This season is a write off now, if the players aren’t there what’s the point? It’s all about next season now 

I disagree. Signings absolutely depend on the manager.

Who in their right minds are going to buy the shite we have with the wages they are on? Even money off, even doing a buy one get one free offer will not make teams take these shitehawks and their big earnings on. That's the stumbling block. I'm sure, for example, Palace would like to have Bolasie back but they probably cant justify either matching or improving his wages.

I can't even justify supplying him with football boots, so I don't blame them for that.

I have feeling most of them will have to take a wage cut to get more playing time.  I think a good few of them will, but yeah there will be some holdouts.

Cant blame them for not wanting to take a wage cut either. Especially the younger players. Sandro will probably happily keep going out on loan, picking up his £120k a week until the end of his contract then go sign a bumper deal somewhere else.

With no Schneiderlin or Gueye in the squad tonight maybe both are off. I know Schneiderlin has missed many squads but with Gueye out, you’d expect he’d at least make the bench. I’m happy for both to go in the hope/expectancy that Brands has got something lined up.

 

Of course, Gueye could just be out as his head’s not right and Schneiderlin as he’s as mobile as a lamppost but it’s good to speculate!

Silva had said Schneiderlin was injured in the pre-game press conference yesterday.

I'd love us to take a punt on Che Adams from Birmingham for around £10m. Saw him score two goals in about 10 mins as a sub against Spurs for Sheff Utd in the League Cup a few years back. Lightning fast and a natural finisher, still only 22 and all.

What's his control and hold-up play like?

Sorry yeah... No positional sense, runs around like a headless chicken, can't play raking 60 yard diagonal balls, doesn't track back, can't play three positions at once... 

Let's go spend three times as much on a player the Fifa geeks have heard of :)
