Post subject:  Transfers....

Ok so now it's that boring part of the year where we get flooded with media news that "WFC are said to be interested in..." (insert one of a dozen names) and yet nothing comes out of it.
I have a feeling the club has no intention of lashing out on many players, and will only do so is say a Doucoure, GD, or Pereyra leaves? Britos is gone and Prodl will probably go also, but we will have Wilmot available so it makes sense that we are looking at this Barca lad (assuming he's any good.?) I bet we will go for one of the out of contract Prem players if wages are right, nobody jumps out at me but I wouldn't be at all surprised to get one in as a squad player.
We've just got to wait now on the players we know might be leaving for the next six weeks.!!!!!!

We need to get younger and better at the back. We dodged a bullet on Holebas's health this past year, but the calendar always wins. Mariappa too. Wilmot is still unproven and our fullbacks can't defend against pace 1v1. We need at least 2 in at the back who we think are top-half quality.

If the Pozzos have gone out to Barcelona then our interest in the young defender must be strong whereas most rumours are just that...

We do need some younger players I feel but not totally inexperienced.

As you say the whole team could do with more pace and composure.

Craig Dawson linked - a good solid defender who can play centre half and right back.

Also WO think we are getting this young chap but then packing him off to Udinese.

Omg, what a load of tosh going around about so called potential signings.! It's worse that last year.!!

WO just basically copy and paste articles from other scoures now !

Dawson sounds the most likely to join .

Certainly not a 35 year old striker released from a Turkish club .

Post subject:  Re: Transfers....

There seemed to be some firm denials that we were in talks with Dawson, but maybe that's a smoke screen as I think GP did the same on a player that did eventually join.?
All the real news has been about players we are sending out on loan, but I guess most players are either still away on their hols, or playing internationals. At least most of our players get a proper break in the summer..

I saw that but as you say who knows!

The Pozzos don't tend to be public in who they are after.

I doubt the Pozzos are after Dawson. He's a tough defender, but not a strong passer. I doubt they see a need to pay an "English premium" to get someone like that. We need at least one centre-half who can defend AND pass the ball. Ideally oen who has more pace than the ones we have now. The big reasons that the top sides abuse are our lack of pace at the back and that our centre-halves can be pressed into errors/errant passes easily.

1st signing on the way ?

Would be a solid addition to central midfield. Not spectacular, but certainly able to give Capoue or Doucs a rest. Is he a strong enough deep-lying defender to let them get forward more do you think? Honestly haven't watched him that much.

Sounds like Dawson will sign for 5.5 million..

Evidently my keen analytical skills have been shown to be, erm, rubbish yet again....

Haha, well tbh we never really know what GP is up to over the summer, so it's basically a guessing game...

Think we have been linked to this guy before so clearly got an eye on him.

Post subject:  Re: Transfers....

Hmm, this is the time when we want to know who is leaving, so we have an idea of which positions need filling. This guy is good, so is he a Deulefeu replacement or a Gray replacement.? After all the big talk from Douc and Deulefeu last season I would expect to see them gone by now, but its earily quiet on leavers. GD will never be a happy bunny in this squad so he can go, but I would love it if Douc decided to stay...

Mings gone to Villa for £25m??! Craziness
Author:  dorsetway [ Sun Jul 07, 2019 6:27 pm ]
Post subject:  Re: Transfers....

Yes there are moments when you really understand the Pozzo model.... So many big money transfers end up in disappointment, we see them every year, especial players coming from overseas leagues. 25 mil gives no gtees so why would Villa spend that much on a fairly anonymous player... Mad.!
OK we splashed a bit on Gray, but mainly we spent around £4 to £11 mil on a player in our first seasons in the Prem, with bargains like Chabs and Hughes and we have Strong mid table team....

They also signed a Southampton reserve full back for 17 million too...

Clearly thinking big - will it work?

Usually not.! Not unless you have several Prem class players already in your ranks. As we well know from years ago, you can gain promotion, desperately try to add a couple of key names to the squad, but it just doesn't work out...

And bid £7m for Heaton.

Lad in from Man City - on a 6 year deal - 20 years old.

Another one for the future?

Navarro gone out on loan and Willmott to join Swnasea?
Author:  Inayellowshirt [ Thu Jul 25, 2019 8:48 am ]
Post subject:  Re: Transfers....

Was hoping Wilmot may push for our first team this year, but another year at a good side will do him better than sitting on our bench most of the year.

Think he is gonna be a class player
