Nahki Wells - SIGNING CONFIRMED


Recommended Posts

Just to confirm, is this a player LJ wanted ? Or is out MA ? Or does it depend on how he performs ? 

Decent mature player, at his peak, championship ready. We will never know the real numbers (clearly played with)  but good for JB to get is chance and helps with FFP. 

If Afobe comes back, and we can sign him, good  forwards for the Championship. 

Where will Wells play ?

Fair enough, I’ve had a ‘mare there.

TBH it’s been a tough day at work, so I’ve had a few and totally forgot JD existed because of his injuries so far this season. 😢

Haha fair enough it’s an impossible puzzle. Only way I can really see Palmer and Wells playing together is the former behind the latter. Assuming Elliason plays

Preston have a 20% sell on clause so we will have to pay them 1.8 million.

We don’t owe Preston a penny.  Burnley may have to pay Preston 20% of any profit they made on the player, unless they sold him to us for less than they paid for him, in which case they don’t owe Preston a penny either.

I still think people are hung up on starting 11’s when it’s so clearly a 14 man game these days. I like the idea of NE coming off the bench with 20 to go against tired fullbacks. Or playing 70 minutes flat out knowing he will be replaced as we change up. There are several possibilities with the way the squad is coming together.

Bloody hell , we’d get ripped apart with that line up. Square pegs in square holes, shouldn’t play players out of position imo. 
you could play 4141-4231 like we did Tuesday with a perm of  wells, wiemann, elliasson, Palmer , pato behind fam or without fam

Easily the funniest thing I've read on OTIB. The thought of the club actually doing this for fun is killing me!

It’s Preston’s sell on clause on Brownhill...

Good signing to get over the line.  Not the ideal age and expensive but definite quality and match sharp - will get goals.

I'd see this being an opportunity to get Palmer into the side and give Fam a rest.

Something like this:

.......................Bentley.........................

Hunt........Williams...Baker......Dasilva

................Smith.......Massengo...........

Paterson........Palmer...........Elliasson

......................Wells..............................

Start trying to play with movement and passing instead of direct.

Good team but would struggle at defending corners

I’d argue that by signing a proven and in form Championship striker that City have strengthened the squad. 
According to Ashton there could well be more incoming tomorrow......

Yeh but you’ve been totally against that and have fallen in behind SL’s strategy for years - don’t try and and insinuate that you agree with signing older, proven geezers now ...

That’s my first choice team right there and it excites me greatly!
