Summer Transfer Window

Recommended Posts

As much as we've obviously signed some quality players, I have a niggling worry. On the assumption that players only come on loan if they're going to get game time, we've got Trybull to fit in the midfield 3 with Evans, Travis, Johnson, Rothwell, Rankin-Costello (maybe) and Holtby. Are we going to rotate constantly or drop some on-form players? I'm working on the idea that Dack and Armstrong are in our front 3 somewhere which leaves 1 spot for Elliott, Dolan, Brereton, Gallagher, Rankin-Costello (I haven't worked him out yet), Chapman and perhaps even Bell wide left. Dear God that's verging on too much depth if money for wages is supposed to be tight. Would rather have signed another centre back myself....

Where is Bolasie?

Turns out we were never serious and Warnock is not all that enthusiastic at Boro either.

Meanwhilst Josh King is having a good old moan at Bournemouth.

Agreed, outrage, Mowbray Out.

Pears has signed for 4 years. 

Do we ever learn with ridiculously long contracts for average players.

On paper it looks like a good transfer window, although I'd have rather seen another centre back come in than another keeper. It's now up to Mowbray to get this team into 6th place at the very minimum, he can have no excuses for failing to do so.

What a window! Cracking business and we now have a very exciting squad mixed with experience and exciting talent. There’s no reason why we can’t be competing for playoffs at the absolute minimum. 
Elliot out of nowhere is very exciting. He’s been around the first team for the best team in the Country and arguably Europe. There’s no doubt he will be getting a lot of match time.

Surely you must have more to say than just that. You’ve been touting no signings at all for the entire summer.

Good work by TM. A favour pushed through in final day mayhem.

The Vs won't even notice.

Its been a very good window though and I cant help but think those above have tired of the slow build and told TM and Waggott that this is the P*-Season

* Promotion or P45

Cracking window that. Kept our best players and added quality. Another CB as cover would have been perfect but all in all better than anyone could have hoped for. 

 

Inlaws are liverpool fans, rate elliot a lot and from what I've seen of him he looks a decent prospect. 

Feels like they're targeting promotion.

eastham,hilton and fisher must be pretty p****d off,not a snowballs chance in hell of them ever playing first team football here,good transfer window but this goalkeeper situation is frankly silly,you don`t need six goalkeepers on the books

It's a crazy change from last year. Funny thing is that even without seeing two of them I bet all 3 we have signed are better than Walton

What an amazing transfer window. We’ve finally addressed our defence, got what looks like a great keeper in, and some exciting talent from the premier league.

Time to get excited about a promising season for me, and I feel that top 6 is a realistic aim now. How good to be able to say that 😀 

Additionally, it has been illuminating to see some try to put any negative spin possible - Elliot is on a massive wage and has a bad attitude 😂 we’ve now got too big a squad 😆 I sometimes think that people have an entrenched opinion about Mowbray and his tenure, and that they are sticking to their opinion until something goes wrong and they can say “I told you so”. It makes for amusing reading.

I think Trybull will find it the hardest but he will be an able backup rather than somebody that slots straight in. That said, he is in last year of contract and there will not be stipulations that he has to play an x amount of games etc. Different kind of loan to Elliott. He will have to prove himself to get a contract from us at end of season - same goes for Douglas but he should surely be in over Bell (has to be).

Happy with the signing of Elliott if he signs in that I felt that we are light in the wide areas and mentioned as such yesterday. It has come out of the blue and I hope we get it done and over the line.

Ideally we could get someone like Wilson, a proven performer at this level. Obviously that was financially beyond us and we have had to go for someone who is really raw, but he has looked a real talent whenever I have seen him for Liverpool in the cups.

Talk about him rotating with Dolan seems naive, he has not come to sit on our bench, we must have guaranteed to Klopp that he has come to play hence him not planning to even loan him out. I suspect that he will jump above Dolan, Brereton, Rankin Costello etc in the pecking order.

I am also glad that Fisher has been let go permanently. With Pears also signing, it made no sense to cling on to him, with a year left to go letting him go is correct.

4 am in Newcastle, Australia. 
 

Wow. 
 

That is an impressive window. And we didn’t even look like selling one of our goodies.
 

What an impressive squad. 
 

Seriously, do we have the strongest (Championship) squad on paper? Or is that just me being overly optimistic?

Maaaannnn ....

He isnt in his final year:

I am also unconvinced that he is coming as back up.

Best transfer window since Venkys rolled up.

We've filled gaps in the squad (Kaminski, Ayala), improved what we have/created competition (Douglas, Elliott), and have a capable placeholder covering for a key squad member (Trybull). Over to you Tone...

As someone said yesterday, fixtures are going to come thick and fast this season so it could we be the team with the biggest squad that goes up.

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.
