Summer Transfer Window 2019 (closed)

Recommended Posts

Funny to think that Alf Ramsey's (then innovative) 4-3-3 side were dubbed 'wingless wonders'. Smith's 4-3-3 is definitely not wingless.

I think people underestimate what good teams Sheff Utd and Norwich are. We had to buy this many players in order to stand still. Luiz, a GK, another MF and ST will see us improve I think. Those teams have good settled teams already and know how to play together. That counts for a lot. I think Norwich especially will surprise a few.

They had very good seasons last year in the Championship, but for me like Cardiff they will find it hard to do enough to stay in the PL, with much the same team they had last year. 

We have acted in this transfer window to strengthen, what for me was a team that would have been a match for both of these clubs, had we only replaced the loan players we couldn't sign again and been otherwise like them, pretty much unchanged from last season. 

I expect both of these teams to finish in the bottom six. I back us to finish above them both and hopefully outside the bottom six, with the work we have done and plan to do in this window.

I agree. It's not like their flying without Mings.

Not injured, he's not....Benfica pulled out for a reason, failed medical i understand.

He is the goal keeping equivalent to Sturridge. Probably best avoided unless you like big medical bills.

I'm what way? It looks like he played mainly full seasons at Genoa apart from one. It doesn't read like he's out injured for large periods every season.

This is just posturing on our part. We want butland and are trying to play hard ball with stoke. 

No we appear to have Registered an interest in Perin

I see Darren Gough on Talksport yesterday and Villa supporting Rupert Bell this morning, said that Big Sam had been wrong to say our spending mirrored Fulham's last year. Some rare sense talked there. 😉

Mattia Perin's injury history taken from Transfermarkt, doesn't look great and would mean he's current injured?

I actually suggested him earlier in the summer but reading his injury history I'm not so sure anymore

I doubt Perin would come cheap and would say 15m Euros spent on him represent a better deal for us than forking out enough to bring in Butland?

They both have international caps, but Butland has more games behind him and we haven't had too much luck with signing keepers such as Gollini of late, have we?

I also fear that Perin would regularly trot out lame excuses for being late for training such as:

"11 minutes late, staff shortages Nine Elms"

11 minutes late, somebody had stolen the lines at Surbiton"

"17 minutes late, defective bogey at Earlsfield"

 "17 minutes late, water seeping through the cables at Effingham Junction - there was a lot of Effingham and a good deal of Blindingham

 "22 minutes late, badger ate a junction box at New Malden"

"22 minutes late, fed up by train delays, came by bike. Slow puncture at Peckham." 😀

Friend of mine who is a Juve fan says Perin is a class keeper and he would prefer they kept him.

Him and many other Juve fans rates him highly.

Perin I think has great quality, but his injuries are a concern. If we could maybe get him on loan would be the safer bet, though if he is a sick note Steer will play a lot (or Kalinic). Might save us a bit though and we could then invest in another quality attacking player.

I once worked with a lad whos surname was Perrin. 

His parents must have liked Worcester sauce because his first name was Liam.

at 84 overall would be comfortably our highest rated fifa 19 player...higher than pickford...that's good enough for me

The days injured stat is exceptionally misleading, and i would argue that its incorrect, as they cant know if his injury was such a long time out of season.

Looking at games missed rather than days, he has only missed a significant number of games once.

Seems sensationalist to suggest he is a sick note or like sturridge.

The multiple occurrences of a shoulder injury in a gk though would put me off as this will deteriorate with age.
