Summer Transfers 2014

Recommended Posts

Big summer, yeah... was it this or the next one though? It always seems to be the next one.

 

I'm waiting for that big summer since Moores sold the club... I won't hold my breath for this summer either.

According the Alan Smith of Sky fame we have conceded lots of goals, so need definitely a need centre half and maybe a full back. These people really don't watch football.

Was talking to a Saints fan yesterday and he said Lallana is a boss player, but that he often doesn't finish games and is taken off after 60-70 minutes. I checked today and he came off after 70 minutes. My immediate thought would be concern about this when he's at a club like Southampton. Does he have a history of injury? Btw I really like him so I'm not being critical.

 

My dream summer;

Shaw - lb, coleman - rb, a top notch no nonsense centre half, another winger that ideally can play both sides to give us options, another striker - remy or benzema would be my shouts and a top centre midfielder.

 

Obviously, massively expensive but if we can sell on a few players, a lot of it could be achievable. Lucas and Johnno would raise a few quid I'd hope among others. The defence would be my main concern. For me, both Sakho and Mig are similar. They will either become real liverpool legends or we will be selling them to Marseille in a year or two for a few million.

Just watching the Sothampton v United game now. So far Lallana has been excellent and will be great for us if we get him.

 

Secondly, I'll be sick whoever Luke Shaw ends up at. He's outstanding and would be worth every penny of £30m. Best leftback in the league this season

Buy the two for 50 mil spend the rest on a top quality right back like Coleman. All player sales should then go into finding a world class young midfield player over the next couple of transfer windows.

I was all for a couple of fullbacks and maybe a defensive midfielder but on consideration I think we should get some more goals. The reason we came up short is when we needed something else we had Joe Allen or nothing, city had negredo, Nasri, dzecko, jovetic or navas. 3 more game changers please Brendan, we'll look at the defensive side of things next year.

Ray Houghton has just been making this same point.

 

Lallana played brilliantly in this game against United and is the captain but was subbed. He was saying he's subbed in half of all Southamptons games (their most subbed player)and goes missing without the ball.

 

Must be a big concern that he's gassed after 70 mins. Not as if he's a youngster. Being a liverpool player you'd need him to be putting 90 minute shifts in

Sky reporting Mancs have bid £27 million for Shaw.

 

Who is making the decision to buy these new players?  

 

They don't have a manager.

Just checked his numbers on premier league.com and he seems fine to me. 4 times in 20 games he didn't play at least 80 minutes. Generally players of his position are usually the ones subbed so I wouldn't be too concerned.

Rich club bids £30m for a defender shocker.

 

You don't need a manager for that, it's just what happens. Got to keep season ticket sales coming in for next season....

 

So they are just spending £30 million before they get a new manager.  Doesn't make much sense.

Shaw is supposed to be a mad Chelsea fan, so if the Mancs have a chance of getting him, then we certainly should be in there. Even if it's 30 million, it's well worth it. With coleman, the blues are always ready to talk money, but they'll be talking crazy money. The thing is they are so skint, he's obtainable. I'd be very happy to offer them 2-3 players and 10-15 million. That's two top quality young fullbacks that know the premier league and would be perfect for the way Brendan has us playing.

 

That's a massive part of our budget blown on those two, but I'd be over the moon getting them in. Guys like mascherano or Xabi might be obtainable for next to nothing to replace Lucas. Not only are they still miles better, but even if they are past it, they are the kind of old pros that we need. Mascherano has played centre half for Barca as well. If we could have money to get a top winger, I'd be over the moon.

They should go for Cole seeing as he's retired from International duty due to the Owl giving him the Summer off.  He can keep Young company down the left.

Whilst we're in make-believe World about signing an Everton player Barkley is the one to get fuck Coleman.

Would love Barkley but reckon they wouldn't sell for under 40 million especially not to us. Not sure, he'd even come here, even it was a goer. Don't agree that it's "make believe world" - Everton would sell to anyone, but they would only sell for crazy money to us. It really would depend on how badly we want him and if we feel that he and Shaw are worth such massive investment. In my opinion, they are.

£27 million is a huge amount for a left back, although Shaw does look like the type of fullback that would flourish here.

 

It would also infuriate the Mancs if we were to muscle in and steal him from right underneath their noses!
