Summer Transfers Window 2020


Recommended Posts

I wouldn't be looking for another forward unless one falls into our lap as it were. We have two competent forwards and the back-up should be ready in 3 months. If we are that unlucky that Watkins and Davis get inured then Traore can do a job until wesley is back. Given where we are with our squad there are more important areas to fill like centre-mid - although ramsey is putting up a good shout for consideration for the matchday 18.

This makes me very nervous. Watkins gets injured before Xmas and it's Davis up front = not many goals. Put Traore up front and it's AEG starting on the wing = wasted chances. Not getting another striker in will weaken us.

I seem to remember us being linked with Eliasson of Bristol City some time last season - he looked to be pretty decent last night, certainly a lot more use than Taylor. Might be worth a shout as back up to Targett.

Well it will  only weaken us if we get the injuries that we had last season and that's not a guarantee. It would of course it would be nice to get another forward in but there is a limit to what we can spend. I'd prefer to see c/m and c/b shored up.

There was a link a few weeks ago.  I thought he was a winger?

Why the panic? Have faith, there is 2weeks left and we've had a good window already. There's no chance we have finished yet.

We've got essential team members in, now we have time on our side to bargain prices down. Everyone thinks we've spent all our money ;)

Derp - Yeah, you're right, I thought he was playing as a wing-back 🤣

Kinda hard to tell the difference these days with all the overlapping and defensive work... (that's my excuse and I'm sticking to it)

I wouldn't be surprised to see benteke on loan.

I wouldn’t be surprised I’d be shocked and horrified. Nice memories but that’s all I’m afraid.

I'm not saying I would want him back. But if the conversation is about getting a back-up forward in, then I think a loan deal is most likely for a prem forward rather than shelling out what's left of our budget on someone to sit on the bench for a large part of the season.

Not sure I fully believe that. We wouldn't just be hanging around like the lonely person in the club waiting for the good looking people to be snapped up before you get your chance. We'd walk away if we know he's looking for something else.
