Summer 2021 transfer thread.

Recommended Posts

I can’t get upset about the thought of losing Neco Williams. He had a couple of decent league cup games initially, but I think he’s been a serious weak link in few games he played last season. 
 

The 2 away games against Brighton, he was really poor. Really poor at Lincoln as well. 
 

Maybe he’s just not kicked on as would hoped?

I'd love for us to be in for someone like Halaand and it not be some far fetched fantasy but a genuinely realistic move. 

Only City,Chelsea,PSG and a stretch United can afford 100mill plus wages in the middle of pandemic

Or no need to replace Gini as young Curtis will fill the role saving millions another FSG moneyball masterstroke etc

Did you say that when Trent replaced Clyne?

Some fans writing off Neco at this point is fucking nuts. Expecting a young lad to come in once every few months and just turn it on is crazy. Many experienced pros find it hard with no rhythm to perform. He may not prove good enough but judging a lad just turned 20 on the back of 4 or 5 starts is absolute bollocks. If we weren't desperate to find cash for transfers yiu loan the lad out. But the penny pinching means you sell

sorry not following you here you saying there no need to replace gini as we got curtis?

No, there is no need to replace Gini because that's Thiago. There is no need to bring another midfielder in as we have Curtis Jones. 

 

It isn't proof to 'moneyball'. Its recognising how good Jones is.

True. But the reports (which we are all basing this on) were clear it is his decision. We won't loan him though. May as well swap him for Boyle i guess.

Although true, we don’t see him train every day. I’m sure if Klopp had more trust in him, we’d have seen him more often. 
 

He did play a reasonable amount before Xmas - thinking about, I can only remember bad performances.

Finding out we’re selling Nico.                                     Finding out Milner is the

                                                                                     back up right-back

Come on, he'll never make it here. It's so obvious.

There's usually a small window where our youngsters are still highly rated, but before they've been seen - and exposed - much in top flight action; that's the time to sell. Once in a while a Trent or Jones will come along, but Williams - though promising - isn't really up there.

 

He's a full international, and needs games. £10m would leave everyone happy.

Obvious on 600 odd minutes of which tbe vast majority have been in second string teams or the odd 10 mins off the bench. He's just turned 20 most defenders are miles off at that age.

What would be the point with Neco anyway? Even if he was good, Trent is our right back. 

There is no point.  If he's any good when/if we sell him they'll be a buy back clause.  I bet we never take up the option.

I’ll make a realistic transfer prediction now, before August The Echo will run a story about how our most important new arrival of the summer will be the returning fans and how they give us an edge on the opposition.

I'm pretty sure they ran that one weeks ago.

You need backup but you don't need backup in the form of an up until now crap youngster who will want more games than we can offer him.

I’ve seen him hooked at half time more than other player and he’s played about ten times.

 

Sell him or not, we’ve fuck all cover there.  Just like the last few years.

Neco can be a back up to trent and it wouldn't be wise to let him go. He's a good young player and would probably be OK waiting on the bench. As we can't afford to have multi million pounds players sitting on the bench like City and some other teams have we need cheaper cover. 

Gini going will leave a massive hole in midfield, his work rate and quality can't be matched by any of the others. Jones is hot and cold until he's given a longer run of games.

You said what’s the point “even if he was good”

That is a fair point. But they are not arguing that they don't have cover - just it will be Boyes, Milner or Gomez!
