Summer Transfer Window 2019 (closed)

Recommended Posts

Apparently we sent scouts to watch the Ligue 1 game between Bordeaux and Metz over the weekend.

Wonder who we were looking at?

Probably Josh Maja (Bordeaux) formally of Sunderland.

Or maybe even Ibrahima Niane of Metz who is a good, young striker. 20 year old Senegal u20 international player.

He got 12 minutes :D 

Obviously clubs can't know who will or will not play.

Nope I’ve been lots games where player hasn’t even made Matchday squad or came off bench. It’s s hope they play situation for scouts otherwise it’s to again another week 

 

did Habib Diallo  play for Metz in the game ?

Played the full 90 mins and got a 5.9 on Whoscored.

was the worst player on the pitch according to them.

Really wished we got Maupay and Benrahma over the line. 1 injury to Kodjia and 1 suspension to Trez and suddenly Keinan Davis is our only attacking option off the bench.

We really shot ourselves in the foot not bringing in another forward player.

Having to rely on a relative unknown in Wesley with only Kodija and Davis as backup is almost as bad as last season with the CB situation.

Really not looking forward to Jan when were held to ransom by teams because they know how desperate we will be.

I hope the next 10 minutes proves me wrong. 

But our attackers are not premier league quality. 

Keeper, defence and midfield all sorted. We **** up with wingers and striker.

Yeah not even sure how to change it up. Not many quality freebies available

Can see us being in for Bowen, hopefully. Our wide options are really poor.

In Jan.

So frustrating that as fans we saw we needed another striker/winger and now it's costing us dearly. It's understandable that it's hard to get these things over the line but we have really shot ourselves in the foot.

Maybe we can tempt proven top flight goalscorer Mr Aston Villa out of retirement

We went for a stable base in the summer but we’ve left ourselves short upfront. It was kind of obvious that’s the annoying thing.

Spending 24 million on two DMs, 12m on a reserve CB and £14m on a reserve LB is looking like it would have made a big big difference spent further up the pitch.

Definitely need another forward and a winger, our options from the bench aren’t the best

You’d like to hope we are already in discussions for signings to be made early January
