Summer transfer window/Firesale 2018

Post by deadbuzzardalive on Fri Jul 06, 2018 5:28 pm

Not our player of course, but Grabban has now officially joined Forest. Bunn's being linked with Albion and Kodjia with Leeds. I suspect most of our transfer activity will be outgoings if not all of it, and things could start happening very soon, as the transfer window closes in early August this year.

If Xia starts asset stripping it will be much worse than selling the players, hopefully it doesn't come to that.

Being linked with a loan move for Harry Wilson from Liverpool. looks a very exciting player, almost like a Snodgrass type but with more pace, can see some similarities with Grealish as well. So I can see why we'd be interested, but whether Liverpool would let him come here under the current circumstances is another question.

Wilson sounds ideal, also being linked with Sam Gallagher the ex Blue nose.

Looks like Jedinak might be on the way out, told he can leave, and it's being reported that he's found a new club in Europe... Obviously we don't want to rely on them, but it would be nice if this means our young midfielders like Doyle-Hayes and Jack Clarke get closer to the first team, both technically very good, and they're also in Portugal, so must be in the managers thoughts for the first team.

Hopefully that means Thor gets to stay in DM but I suspect it means we'll get to see every player in the Championship run rings round Whelan.

I don't have any issue with Jedi going, we need to take this opportunity to lose a lot of the old players and start to break in the youngsters. We've tried 'experience' and 'real men' and now need to sprinkle a little 'football', 'passing' and 'energy' through the team. And if Hogan's the only top class striker remaining at the club we're going to have to pass the ball on the ground anyway!

The younger players have to be in the plans because they will be the only ones left! Look, we’re being forced to do what we should have done 2yrs ago. I’ve no problem with players such as Jedinak leaving as they’re on big money with no resale value if we keep them for the season. Somehow we have to seek to become a younger, more mobile team with a sprinkling of enough quality to allow us to compete. To date we really don’t know if any of our youth players are good enough as they’ve not been given any chance for any period of time. We THINK we have some quality in O’Hare, Green, Davis, RHM, etc, but we just can’t be sure and so can’t put all our eggs in one basket with them. The one glaring problem we have is the manager, as we know he simply does not do youth players and dynamic football. If the young players are to be used and Bruce sends them out as he always does then they will fall on their arses very quickly and we’ll struggle like hell. Maybe when all our summer business is done we can look at replacing Bruce, though I’m assuming he’ll get time unfortunately. Every player is for sale and I honestly think we’ve seen the last of Grealish, Kodjia, Chester, Thor, Jedinak, & Adomah. Those 6 going probably equates to around £8m annual salary savings, and we should be recouping around £50m in transfer fees. Add that to the salary savings of around £8m per annum that must have been made with the loans going and we have some big numbers. I think we’ll still only see frees and loans coming in but that should allow us to compete on salary with some of the better available loans and frees. Ideally Richards would have the decency to retire and McCormack would look to leave for the last years of his career, then we can save another £4m per annum in salary. Definitely not holding my breath on that one though. I haven’t even mentioned Hogan, who is apparently wanted by Sheffield United, though I read they are looking to loan, which surely we’d not be stupid enough to do?

Dean Marney, just released by Burnley, training with us, surely we have enough central midfielders. He'll be 35 in January as well, Bruce's obsession with slow past their best players continues... Despite all the talk of giving youth a chance next season, I wouldn't be surprised if Green and Davis are the only ones who Bruce gives any meaningful game-time to.

If it was an experienced central defender we taking a look at I could understand it, but not another central midfielder.

Crazy, do we never learn but certainly not unexpected with Bruce in charge!

We already have Whelan in the middle as Bruce's liability player, we don't need two slow and old midfielders there solely to cover each other. This 'real man' shit needs to go out the window but then maybe Bruce is going with 'try, try, try again' or 'third time lucky'.
