WHO SHOULD WE SIGN?


Guest

Recommended Posts

SL has said we should buy players from league 1, so who would YOU sign and why?

From a brief look at the player stats a guy called Bradley Dack from Gillingham seems to be the stand out player.

21yrs old(soon to be 22), 25 appearances, 10 goals, attacking midfielder.

Seems to fit the bill?

We all knew about him from playing them 5 times last season and he'd be great competition for Freeman. Sam Morsy from Chesterfield, Jamie Allen from Rochdale, Matty Done from Sheffield Utd, Tom Bradshaw from Walsall, Daniel Bentley from Southend, Conor Washington and Marcus Maddison from Peterborough all seem to catch the headlines. When we signed Marvin Elliott many had never heard of him even though we'd played against him twice in league 1 the season before. What a signing he turned out to be in that first season in the championship. Maybe there is another diamond in the rough waiting for someone to take a chance on him.

I don't think Dack has ever been mentioned on here before.....

Certainly there are a few good names on jambodinho's list.

If SL's comments in midweek can be taken as an indication that we are going down the lower leagues route again, then the keeper Ingram at Wycombe, centre back Egan at Gillingham, and Morsy (as mentioned) are all worth a look. As for Done, as the biggest club at their level I just can't see Sheffield United selling us their players.

Not at all sure that Bradshaw can step up in the hardest position to find good players so I'd be happy if we took another punt in Ligue 2, there must be another quality (French speaking) striker there, or maybe in Belgium?

In whatever position it is I think bringing in another French speaker would be a very good move as keeping Kodjia happy and feeling included could well be a big part of whether we stay up.

Bentley from Southend.

Moore extended loan.

Bennett on permanent.

Experienced head in CM - Wigans McCann?

Kermagant from Bournemouth.

 

 

Saw in the tabloids a few weeks ago that Kermorgant has just bought a new top of the range Porsche 911, he certainly didn't buy that on £2k a week, did he?

Bentley wouldn't join us, but McCann however is a very good shout, though Wigan pay wages far in excess of League One.

In fact their new chairman made a bit of a prat of himself in the summer when he said their budget was seven times the size of many clubs at their level...

So SL want's us to go after the L1's best players.

Um......ok, that worked really well last season when we were actually in L1.

We are now in the Championship where these L1 players are struggling, so I can't see the logic of going
after anymore L1 players who will most likely struggle as well.

If we do, and we go down, blimey! we'll be L1 champions again before next Xmas, come back up again and be in the exact situation that we find ourselves in now!

We couldn't organize a piss up in a brewery!:badmood:

And to answer the question, Bentley from Southend please, who I feel could cut it in the Championship.

Isn't the big question, WHO should be spending the money?

You either get rid of Cotts before the window, and give the dosh to the new geyser, or back Cotts, even if he spends big and takes us down.

:badmood:

(Christmas week - getting depressed already).

Bennett, Bentley, Kasim. Not Matt Smith though, need someone mobile enough to press. At least Wilbs isn't awfully slow. A cheaper Chris wood is the person we need.

If or when we go down, we'll lose half our squad because they won't want to drop their wages. So rather than bounce back up in one season, we'll have to start rebuilding the squad from scratch.

Another long stay down with the dross!

I know it's been done to death but I'd still be going in for Matt Smith. Since Fulham's change of manager he has only managed the subs bench, for me would be ideal foil for Kodjia and we already know fits well into our system.

For me, worth paying top dollar for.

 

Or would he just add to the ranks of players we have that were too good for league one, but struggle to have much impact in the championship..?

The obvious question is why didn't we adopt this strategy in the summer if that's what SL wanted. I'm sure we could have (pretty much) had our pick of the best of last year's L1 talent after the season we had. 

If we'd have done that instead of twatting about trying to sign players who were never realistic targets we might have had a more successful summer.

Presuming wage reduction on relegation is in their contracts ( and it damn well should be) they won't have that option.

If we allowed contracted players to move on it would be City's decision alone and presumably we'd only do so if adequately compensated.

Especially as a number of the players likely to be sought by other clubs in the eventuality of relegation extended their contracts only a few months ago.

Heard a whisper from our end the possibility of a deal concerning Kasim and El Abd.

But, beware. Kasim has been very poor for us since he came back from the African Cup of Nations last February.

A lot of it, I think, is an attitude problem. He saw 3 or 4 teammates leave for bigger clubs and nobody came in for him.

Maybe a move to you would freshen him up.

What do you think of El Abd?
