Summer Transfer Window


Recommended Posts

I think us, Forest and Cardiff have been the biggest movers in the transfer window. When you look through Forests squad its just wow. Cardiff, not so much but they have brought in some good players but i dont think they were the right club for Wilson (probably the only one willing to stump up for him).

Bristol City, Birmingham, ourselves, Cardiff and maybe QPR have had good windows for me. Sheffield Wednesday decent too, and Watford have done well to keep so many of their best players.

Derby and Huddersfield have had particularly strange windows. Not sure on Forest, plenty of quality but also plenty of holding midfielders and far too many bodies. That being said, their last 2 of Knockaert and Hughton are very impressive.

Preston a strange one. Very quiet but plenty of players with only a year on their contract.

Harvey will play. No way Liverpool would have let him come here without some kind of verbal promise that Harvey will get game time, especially as they had no intention of letting him go until TM put up a strong case. Him and Dolan will compete for the right attacking spot. 

The signings today probably spell the end for Davenport and Chapman. 

 

Maybe Evans too?

Summary of other clubs:

Cardiff got Dillon Phillips

Millwall bagged Zohore on loan

Forest loaned Knockheart

Cardiff loaned Harry Wilson (odd fit in my book)

Swansea loaned Palmer (odd same division loan for someone Bristol spent quite a bit on)

Those are the bigger ones, have I missed any?

 

Forest got Grosicki too. Hopefully neither play against us tomorrow.

I read somewhere that they essentially offered us Elliot or Wilson. Guessing finances dictated who we went for, but as you say, great to have that relationship!

I’ve read on from the Liverpool journos and Sharpe that Liverpool never planned to let him go until we submitted a detailed plan for Elliott...that’s top class!!

Forest have signed Knockeart and already have the likes of Lolley, Lyle Taylor, Grabban, Freeman, Ameobi and Guerrero fighting for their advanced positions. On paper their squad is crazy and with a good manager, which they now have, they should be challenging.

More important  ..how has Harvey got past Mowbray with a hairstyle like that ...? Questions need to be asked and answered ...

He saw an image thought it was a photo of Gallagher playing out wide.  He thought maybe if we play Harvey out there everyone will think it's the lad I spent $7 million quid on

I know I’m a positive person but today’s deals have totally blown me away! I could never have envisaged such personnel arriving and even getting Mulgrew to sign for Fleetwood!

I’ m sure every club wants to strengthen during the window but I can’t think of another club in our league who has done as well as us.

Time for a little bet on the top 6 at least.

Surely you can top Mercer's £150 @ 13-2? And from memory, that's for promotion. Think really big; and who knows, you might be able to buy the club from our owners!??

Very different season to come.  Mowbray gets what he wants (more or less) Venkys put another 18 million into the club presumably to keep us afloat over Covid but also to cover salaries for our new players.

For the first time, Mowbray now needs to deliver.

He delivered by getting us promoted and moving the club into mid table safety.

Are you feeling okay? Dack is still by far our best player! 

Read my last sentence.

I am just saying that our strength in depth has meant that even our best players will be squirming a bit more.

He did deliver but let’s be honest promotion from league 1 was the simple bit for a club of our stature.  We where up against the likes of Shrewsbury for heavens sake.  He did get us into mid table safety but some of his decisions have been abysmal when playing players out of position, how many right sided players did he play on the left?  
I believe now we have a squad, at least on paper that can compete, so having got his recruitment sorted, he needs to deliver, otherwise he will be on his bike and quite rightly.

Not that it matters overall but Elliot has to be registered as he’s a loan player.

We did this all earlier. We have quite a few under 21s such as Dolan, the Nick the Greek, Buckley etc that don't have to register...so should fit all in.

I've just lumped on us to finish top 6 at 9/4. It's been a brilliant window but I'm not sure I trust us to get promoted ?

He didn't deliver though, he had 15 games for us not to get relegated and we did.

Yes, a club of our stature should breeze through League 1. Btw, when do we play Sunderland this year?
