January transfer window

Recommended Posts

I did wonder against Leeds that despite all the money we've spent (and a bloated squad) we only really have Murphy as an option when Grabban is injured and we were playing a midfielder at centre half.

Yes, as someone already mentioned we could do with a new keeper and some additional firepower up front ... or at least give the young Appiah lad a fair crack. Murphy had a decent game against Leeds but we can’t really rely on him as our only option next to Grabban.

Apparently a fee has been agreed to sell tachtsidis to leece. Did we sign him for free? Another kapino deal to help with ffp?

We got him for nowt didn’t we? I’m guessing Ansifarad will go the same way. Seems a bit dodgy however if it helps us out and is within the rules then I’m all for it.

Looks like he’s gone on loan, not a transfer? 

Loan with a deal in place for a permanent move in the summer.

I interpreted the transfer as being optional, must have read it wrong.

Bournemouth have agreed an 18 month loan out to rangers for Defoe so looks like that's done and Sean dyche says he has 3 marvellous keepers that he wants to choose from so looks like nick pope won't be going anywhere. 

Boro, west brom and Leeds are also interested in top goal scorer from Pompey -Jamal Lowe as well as us, I never feel like we do well at recruiting when other teams like that are interested so would be surprised to see that go through

Dyche can enjoy the fact he's got 3 keepers all he likes but at least one of them will surely be pissed off at playing for England one minute and Burnley Reserves the next.

So are we going to do any business in the last few days?

My priorities would be;

Priority 1 is to ship out those players who aren’t rated by the club and who are unlikely to feature for the rest of the season. These are Henderson, Yates, Bridcutt, Ward and Clough. (I know Yates has been on the bench recently but realistically he is 6th choice for a centre midfield spot).

Priority 2 is defence. We already have injury issues and if Fox is going as well, then we probably need two players. Mings and Blackett are both being touted and I would be happy with both.

Priority 3 is attacking midfielders/forwards. It would be nice to bring in a few more options but I think that depends on what MON thinks of Gonçalves, Soudani and Ansarifard. If he likes them all then there isn’t really any point in bringing anyone else in.

if Soudani is still injured then it would be difficult to move him on, but I’m sure there would be interest in Gonçalves and Ansarifard. If it’s true that we made an £8m for Oxford then how about we use that money to make an ambitious move for Che Adams instead? Alongside McClean on loan, then we would be a lot more dynamic upfront.

Who’ve we been linked with so far? King, Mings, Blackett and that Russian ‘keeper are the names I’ve seen us linked with so far.

That Russian keeper  (Lodygin) has signed for Oly on loan for remainder of season. He's out of contract in the summer. Wouldn't be surprised to see him join us during the summer.

Villa looks the likely destination for Mings. Rumour has it they've offered better terms than West Brom.

If we did sign Mings you can guarantee that he'd be out for the season after a game or two, don't need any more of those players.

We definitely need at least two centre backs though considering we currently have none.

Well Fox has gone to Wigan so there's at least one new player coming in. Let's hope it's one of quality rather than 3 shit oxygen thieves as per usual.

Dias scores for Olympiacos in tonight’s EL game against Kiev. Did he ever manage to score for us? 🙄

He'll do well at Oly. Hopefully, his performances there will serve as some sort of measurement on why Marinakis and his cronies should stop sending us over players that won't compete in this league.
