Re: Weekend Football

Norwich will take a few hammering this season. But they'll also cause bottom half teams problems and will get enough wins to stay up.

Re: Favourite signing of the summer

In relative terms, yes; didn't Lita break our then transfer record? And before that iirc Caskey at 750K. Ended up not a bad player. “Big money” moves to Reading since 1985 Hurlock - success Canoville - success Curle - success Moran - flop Maskell - success Meaker - flop Caskey - success Asaba - suc...

Re: Rumour - Danny Loader to Wolves

This. As Hound and Hendo both pointed out, the European Leagues Tranfer window runs to late August. Juventus and a couple of big German sides have been sniffing. Also, with L1 & 2 windows open until the end of August, could a season long loan move be on the cards on the back of signing a lucrat...

Re: Any more out the door?

Barrow not playing tomorrow. Off to Turkey to discuss terms with a couple of clubs.

Apparently loan with option to buy - must say that surprises me. I would expect we want a decent fee.

Re: Are we screwed?

Interesting view. At least these signings are a bit younger. If it doesn't work out for Puscas, Jaoa and Rafael, I'd still expect them to be easier to shift than Aluko, Edwards, Meyler, Baldock and Mannone. Many of the others, as you say, are on loan. I understand concerns they may not perform as pe...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Hull City (a) sponsored by Nigel Adkins

windermereROYAL Can anyone guess David Prutten`s prediction for tomorrow?

Ha! I didn't use to follow him that closely, but he really does seem to doubt us every week. Last season his prediction table had as bottom by quite a long way.

Re: The generic transfer thread

Sanguine
The Enfield Royal71
NotARacist How old is he now?


Does that matter?


It's a little bit of context. He's just turned 19, so he's got a few years to 'make it' at a higher level.

When Bale was around the same age Spurs were considering moving him on under Redknapp

Re: MATCHWATCH : Hull City (a) sponsored by Nigel Adkins

I'd feel comfortable throwing Ejaria and Joao straight in. Pele also has Championship experience too so probably safe to play. Rafael is better than what we have, even if ideally we'd give him time to settle. Puscas and Boye can start on bench and play against Northampton. I expect them to really st...

Re: Where will we finish?

You can get 16/1 for us to have a top 6 finish with Unibet. I don't expect us to make it, but a price of 6/1 or so would definitely reflect reality better after the deadline. I'm definitely going to put on £30.

Re: Where will we finish?

My only concern with the signings is the owners' expectations. Top 6 would be great, but we shouldn't necessarily expect it. Gomes did a miraculous job keeping us up last year and I'm convinced he's the long term man to take us to the Premier League. But, not necessarily this year. If we play good f...

Re: Rumour - Danny Loader to Wolves

Maneki Neko Offer was 8 million I've heard
Fell through due to the Kennedy deal going south

Source? If he doesn't sign a new contract, no way a tribunal will set the fee that high. He'll probably be a bit part player for us this season. Bonkers decision if true.

Re: Rumour - Danny Loader to Wolves

I wonder if the Kenedy, Ejaria and Loader deals were all related. Plan a: Kenedy on loan, £3m on Ejaria to ensure only 5 loanees in squad, sell Loader to meet FFP. Kenedy pulls out, we negotiate loan with Liverpool and don't sell Loader. I expect he'll be pissed off short term and may well be left o...

Re: Where will we finish?

I think we can cool top 6 expectations; this is a newly assembled squad that will take time to gel. Mid table is fine.

Next summer, make 2 or 3 quality additions to build on this squad and aim to be right in the mix.

First choice starting XI

Simple question. If the whole squad is available, how would you line up? What formation? It seems we're blessed with many options. For the sake of this, I'm leaving out Loader as I expect an announcement soon. Leaving Barrow in though. Rafael Yiadom Miazga Moore Obita Rinomhota Pele Meite Ejaria Boy...

Re: Favourite signing of the summer

I went Ejaria. I think he will go from strength to strength. Assuming it becomes permanent we could be selling him for £15m in a few years. I think he's better than Swift. Overall, it's a great transfer window. A mix of experience and younger talent. All in positions where there is a need. Looks lik...

Re: Kenedy - Rumour

Sutekh Looks like this one is not happening. Rumour Ejaria on loan again so Kenedy would be a 6th loan.

I thought that too. Does this also mean Barrow stays? Ejaria and Loader could be the extent of our business. Would be an excellent window tbf.

Re: Rumour - Ovie Ejaria

Adam Goodwin (some freelance journalist I hadn't heard of) reporting that this is happening. Loan, presumably with option or obligation to buy.

Re: Rumour - Ovie Ejaria

I'm losing faith here. Don't forget, nothing needs to be announced at 5. As long as the deal sheet is in, medicals and etc can still happen and be announced a few hours later. Surely medical needs to come before deal sheet? Otherwise you could be left with a crocked player? I expect you could rever...

Re: Kenedy - Rumour

Sounds like he's in 2 mins whether to drop down or stay and compete at Chelsea. He'd have to have a blinder of a season here to advance his chances at Chelsea to be fair. Maybe using cup games and training is a better way forward for him
