Summer Transfer Window 2019

Recommended Posts

There have been some rumblings from the club about youngsters pushing for loan moves rather than the club shunting them out, relative to Travis, Nyambe, Nuttall, Magloire, etc. sticking around and eventually getting appearances. Probably more in reference to Platt and Hardcastle who went out and hardly played, but Wharton may be pushing for these loans himself too. He's at least played a decent amount with Cambridge, Lincoln, and Bury these past few years, although it was odd he didn't move up to League One this year. I vaguely recall Mowbray saying a L1 loan deal fell through, so he returned to Lincoln as he was well-liked there, but then Lincoln added Shackell a few weeks after Wharton re-signed, who pushed Wharton out of their regular lineup.

I also recall he had a poorly timed injury, accompanied by a poor run of form with the u23s (it was suggested Platt and Grayson had moved ahead of him...), when a spot may have opened up for him at the start of our horrid 16-17 year. (There were also rumours about preventing him from earning an appearance-based raise, but he did sign a new contract last September...)

Probably would be nice to have him around as depth right now, but I don't think his development has necessarily been stunted this year. Still one for the future. Let him compete for a spot in camp next year and then re-evaluate.

Problem is though, if he's barely playing when he's out on loan in League 2, it seems unlikely next season that he'll get in a team on a weekly basis a division higher.....

I think he's played 21 games for Lincoln/Bury this season. Interestingly he's played 6 times for Bury and scored 2 goals----that's 2 more than Brereton!

A mate of mine who is a Cambridge fan said he played really well for them, scoring in his nine appearances. he did well enough and was liked by the fans at Lincoln to be asked to return. The shackell signing hampered his first team appearances. Scoring twice in his first stint and once In his second stint and he currently has two goals for bury in 6 appearances. He also has a goal for us if I remember rightly. So he is decent at both ends going off the stats. He really should have had more chances here. I'd seriously see what the lad can do and rate him alot more than Tyler who needs alot more polishing before being considered a first team regular

The Wharton thing doesn’t smell right. He can’t get near the team but has signed a new contract. I think he will be sold to a L1 or L2 side and the contract is just to protect our investment.

Hope I’m wrong as I think he should be still here and getting the opportunities that are now coming Magloire’s way.

Surely this kind of link should be in the Academy thread?

This can’t be the kind of player Mowbray is looking to bring in for the first team.

You're right, we need to save space for all the senior players we are being linked with.

Oh, wait...

At the very least the next keeper needs to be one who directly challenges Raya for a first team place but in all likelihood this lad will get another deal Mowbray signed him after all.

Would be happy Fielding signing. He is experience at this level

He's small and average, bit like what we already have....we should be aiming to make someone like Ruddy first choice...

Someone like Karl Darlow from Newcastle could be an option.

Which might cause a bit of embarrassment to Bowyer who had him on trial in 2014. Could also ask why Lowe did not rate Bednarek the previous close season, a player who has gone on to play for his country.

Did we? 

Can you tell me about Lowe not rating Bednarek?

Is this a specific question to me and if so do you expect a different answer to the information I have already provided. Or is this a question to the readership in general to confirm whether my facts are right?

I'm asking for more detail about Will Vaulks being on trial here? Like when was it? Was he free agent? 

Did you know why Lowe didnt rate  Bednarek? Was this summer 2017? Or before?

Which Lowe? David Lowe? Jason *spits* Lowe? Confused why anyone in charge would not sign him due to either of their opinions.

With our women's team doing so well, perhaps it would be a bit awkward having him lurking around the facilities. Especially during the events where kids have a day out with coaches and players to improve their skills.

Championship and prem clubs have to complete all perm and loan signings by August 9th for next season.

We're screwed.
