Summer Transfer Window 2019

Recommended Posts

Seriously considering putting a tenner on rovers to go down this season. Mowbary is a clown. Absolutely clueless when it comes to transfers. Clueless when it comes to tactics.

Never bet against your own team! 

Bit harsh, I admit I’m also concerned we don’t have a first choice ‘keeper of new defenders, but there is time...

Though I will feel much better if these issues are addressed before we kick off against Charlton...

That is pretty damming evidence, but you did omit Dann, so I take it you are only looking at the time since we went down. Still, damning no doubt... 

In fairness you could look at any position before Mowbray took over and see the same story. He had a few weeks left to buck the trend this window. 

Let's just saw though we get a good centre half on loan. Not my ideal scenario, I think we should buy one, but let's just say. No doubt there will be uproar here, but would that be an over reaction, if, as I said, the one we get on loan is good? 

Yeah  I was focusing on those who have appeared since relegation whereas Dann was a Premier League signing.

Very concerning looking at the list above.

I'm just letting off some steam. I won't make a bet but I have felt very little for rovers since venkys have come to town. When they're gone it will feel like clean air again. I just think mowbary is out of his depth at this level

£5m is a lot to pay for a substitute, but we'll be thankful of the Gallagher signing if Graham gets injured, otherwise we'd be in trouble.

I think we'd all feel a lot better if we signed a keeper and a couple of decent defenders to go straight into the first XI.

No no no no no no. We aren’t paying 5 million for him too play on the f**king wing mate. He’s got too take Graham’s place in the side, if he comes in and hits the ground running then that will happen but I’m not having him shoe horned in on the wing when he’s a striker. 

Would you call Sadio Mane a winger?

A player that nets 12 goals a season..on top of what we have. I'll take it.

 

3 other teams would love to have got him

Ya, indeed. If he doesn't come good at some point during his contract, that deal will look even worse. Spending the money there made no sense in hindsight as things stand. 

Some of us didn't need hindsight. It was pretty obvious that it was a strange signing.

Yeah he'd plenty of impact, especially on opposition forwards !

There’s a page about him in one of Fergie’s books - the only defender SAF was ever scared to play against, and that was when they were both in their teams’ reserves!

Mane Firmino and Salah all interchange and are good enough too do it. Mane can run at people and take them on as well as being able to cross, but also he can cut inside and play central very well. Sam Gallagher is not Sadio Mane.

that's the role in the formation. It's not "on the wing"

McNamee wouldn't have a career in the modern game. He came from an era when tackling from behind was legal and running studs down opponent;s shins seen as part and parcel of the game. As a tough nut and leader though, we could do with someone of his character

But playing on the right of a front three regardless, at some point you will be stuck on the wing having to run at and beat people, we saw it with Brereton last season. That is not Gallaghers game just as it clearly isn’t Brereton’s.

LOL 

Backtracking faster than Williams playing left back up against a tricky right winger

Oh ya. Had you heard of him before we bid for him? Honest question.

I think our only signings now need to be in the back 4 and GK. We have plenty options and cover accross all mid and att positions now.

We could do with shipping some out perma and on loan, but thats a work in progress I guess.

So we need bare minimum a goalkeeper.

Pretty well need a good centre back

In an ideal world we could do with 1 or 2 full backs who would start in the best 11 also

I only had to watch his "highlights" video to see he wasn't a Danny Graham replacement. Neither is Gallagher for that matter.

Out of interest, What would be the better transfer window?

 

Our current signings and presuming we sign Gallagher for 5 million and a keeper on a free/loan. 

or

Bauer on a free, Harrison Reed for 5 million and keep Raya?

So perhaps we are not going to replace Graham. But change the formation
