Just a few names that have been mentioned on various 'rumours' sites for discussion.
Rob Holding (Arsenal)
James Wilson (Man U)
Connor Wickham (Palace)
Personally I'd take all 3?

UTV.

Allyp1972

{Ed001's Note - if Wilson has recovered from his ACL injury, he would be a fantastic signing. Problem is that it can take years to fully recover from those injuries.}


1.) 03 Dec 2017 11:21:59
I've read it that he's got 5 goals in 5 games for the Man U U23's, with Ibrahimovic back he's not going to get near a 1st team start, I didn't know about the injury tbh, but I don't know if this is true, we had a shot at buying Falcao from River Plate not long after he had a similar injury for £2M, we got Heskey in instead, sums Villa up don't it lol?

UTV.

{Ed001's Note - it is a waste of talent for him to be playing in the U23s. Falcao didn't suffer his ACL injury until a long time later mate. He was playing in Europe when it went. What a player he was and it took him 3 years to get back to anything like his best, but he was much older when he did his.}


2.) 03 Dec 2017 12:00:42
Holding would be decent, when he’s played for Arsenal 90% of the time he makes the centre halves around him look like the inexperienced ones. Can’t see that happening tho as I’m sure they’ve only got 4 centrebacks and they got tore a new one yesterday. I remover Wilson doing well at Brighton didn’t know he’d done his ACL. Wickham would fit right in, we set up for a big man who can hold it up and wait for players to get around them.

{Ed001's Note - it was Wilson doing his ACL that started the chain of events that led to Rashford getting a shot. Though it was meant to be Ashley Fletcher, he had to pull out at the last minute, Rashford was drafted in and the rest, as they say, is history.}


3.) 03 Dec 2017 13:30:28
What about Origi from Liverpool on loan until the end of the season?

He needs games to put himself into contention for bBelgium and also to put himself into the shop window too.

{Ed001's Note - he is on loan with Wolfsburg.}


4.) 03 Dec 2017 17:36:40
Hasn’t thought of Wickham till he was mentioned, would be good at this level. Solanke would be excellent but he gets minutes occasionally for Liverpool. Ings is a quality striker but if hogan can’t get a sniff in our system, be hard to see Ings doing well. We spread goals around the team and play best when we have a forward who plays with their back to goal, give the centre halves something to think about and hold it up until others get around them. But Leeds exposed that as they bullied Davis and then we couldn’t get up the pitch. Hopefully when (not if) we go up we get benteke back, really kept us up alone for 3 seasons, can play the big man with back to goal but just as good with it on the deck running at and in behind a back line.


5.) 04 Dec 2017 09:13:31
I obviously was watching a different game chris, Davis led the line well it was josh and the midfield who failed to support the striker for the first half.


6.) 04 Dec 2017 21:08:48
You must of been mate, Davis won probably 20% of duels and got bullied left right and centre.


 

 

12 Nov 2017 21:56:11
Got a name to throw in for Jan that with a bit of wheeling and dealing could do a job for us, Lee Cattermole? he's 29, nasty, can play a bit, familiar to Bruce at 2 clubs he's managed, The Mackems are going nowhere, only snag is he's contracted till 2021. Putting it out there, it's just a suggestion

UTV.

Allyp1972

1.) 13 Nov 2017 06:40:41
I do like him but he gets sent off a lot mate and we alright have big jed an whelen that can play that role. From what Bruce has said we have to sell to buy we have a big squad whether its a good squad only time will tell if we buy anybody has to be a lbk an a cbk but that's all down to moving players on. Facts are mate we had our parachutw money and wasted it on the likes of hogan an mcormack so if we don't go up this year we are stuck down here.


2.) 13 Nov 2017 07:09:37
Fair enough, I'm just going on that Whelan gets a lot of stick, and the wheeling/ dealing I meant was Evra is toast at Marseille so they need to secure Amavi sharpish, he's in the shop window now

UTV.


3.) 13 Nov 2017 11:06:27
Who need to secure him? He’s already been sold.


4.) 13 Nov 2017 16:14:07
He's on loan

UTV.


5.) 13 Nov 2017 17:31:44
He’s not anymore.


6.) 13 Nov 2017 18:05:09
Amavi deal is done mate apparentley went through already because he played a certain about of games. Shame evra is banned I would of took him till the end of the season. If we had to sell a few Allyp who would you sell to get money to buy others? UTV Great thinking by the way Allyp good to think outside the box.


7.) 13 Nov 2017 18:10:40
Loan with buying option = money not in the bank

UTV.


8.) 13 Nov 2017 18:33:25
He’s definitely been sold, Loan with appearance clause if met they have to buy him. Met it game before he was called up to the national team. Whether we want to stop it or not, his their player. Whether he breaks a leg and never plays again his their player. So there’s no securing him as you mentioned, unfortunately.


9.) 13 Nov 2017 20:41:24
My bad WTW and Chris, does this mean we have money in Jan then because I'd have thought Amavi going on loan was a 1 in 1 out, in respect of wages, ffp etc.? I'd have a bidding war for Kodjia in Jan, there's teams in the Prem in the bottom half of the table who need goals, I know Kodjia ain't getting them at the mo but a fool and his money are soon parted it is said. Ship him out, go for someone like Ings, Austin or of that proven Championship quality on loan with view to buy, any spare cash spend where needed, go up, have a party, I'll bring the beers, sorted 👍🏻

UTV.


10.) 13 Nov 2017 23:17:00
Sounds a plan mate well the beers part anyway I wouldn't mind if we didn't sign anybody we have a big squad lansbury bjarnson dieing for a game gabby is also after few games now I know there not great but Bruce brought them i for 1 think Bjarnson is a central mid so why has he not had 1 game there since been brought his been made to look bad because Bruce don't play him in central mid for Iceland his great Lansbury can still do a job aswel.

The squads more than good enough ok Terrys injuryed elphick and Samba an Richards if your not going to play these lads don't you think we should sell or rip up there deals? Not saying few players wouldn't improve us but we can't keep buying players when we have a huge squad I say let's either play or sell them. Playoff final here we come mate so you might need to buy champagne mate aww expensive round mate heard Flackie loves the stuff. UTV.


 

 

31 Aug 2017 16:37:23
This is a bit of a sketchy 1 but mate has heard rumblings about Vermalen from Barca, Gardner to Barnsley on loan and Supermac move back on to Sunderland, I've got nothing else

UTV.

Allyp1972

1.) 31 Aug 2017 16:59:21
Sunderland don't want to pay a loan fee and don't want to cover all his wages, until that changes he won't go, fortunately Tom Fox isn't in charge anymore.


 

 

29 May 2017 18:27:01
Haven't been on here for a while and been catching up on the mood. Just got a shout for a new GK, it might have already been said, John Ruddy, free agent from Norwich, 30 years old, ex England, ticks all the boxes if we haven't got as much money to throw around

UTV.

Allyp1972

1.) 29 May 2017 21:18:13
I totally agree mate. But do think it's a fine deal for Johnstone.


2.) 29 May 2017 22:11:31
Meant done deal!
(But fine fits! )


3.) 30 May 2017 12:01:54
yeah like sounds of that might even go as far as saying get them both in and let what we have already go, don't see any of the keepers we already have as worth keeping and ruddy would be very good for helping johnstone learning off.


4.) 04 Jun 2017 14:12:03
Would be a great signing👍🏼.


 

 

29 May 2017 11:08:03
Grant Hanley is a solid rumour, definitely talks happening, Elphick on the way out, there's another 1 that everyone wants on here that probs won't happen till at least January but my lips are sealed lol

Danny ings I would like.


 

 

23 Aug 2017 19:50:11
If Hogan and Davis play well together on Friday, look like they'd be unstoppable, what would you do if a Prem club came in with a £30M+ bid for Kodjia.? I'm just thinking of this FFP business and the Prem clubs with ridiculous amounts of money to spend and the window closing in a week's time? As a disclaimer, I'm not suggesting that we sell him, I'm asking what would you do?

UTV.

Allyp1972

1.) 23 Aug 2017 20:07:52
That would leave us with Gabby and RHM, presuming we sell McCormack which seems likely. Neither of the two can stay fit for 5 minutes so we would be stupidly short in that department.


2.) 23 Aug 2017 20:53:21
No. 100m if we get promoted. He will get 15-20 goals this year.


3.) 23 Aug 2017 21:01:54
The ideal would be McCormack going for something like £8M, was thinking someone like Everton would be sniffing around Kodjia, if they sold Barkley. You've got to excuse me, I'm big on conspiracy theories, The Illuminati etc, it's just how I think. If I can put it another way, if Kodjia was to go for £30M+, who would you replace him with, taking into consideration that we couldn't spend all that money, I think we need some KingVilla mathematics to find out how much it could be? If McCormack was to go too, my suggestions would be Shane Long and Robbie Keane, if you're going like for like

UTV.


4.) 23 Aug 2017 20:59:48
Not been here for a while, plus I forgot my login details, to answer Allyp, we have to keep Kodjia as it's along hard season and if our strikers start scoring and tormenting defenders on regular basis you can bet your bottom dollar they are going to get injured, so yes no sale.


5.) 23 Aug 2017 21:04:59
I agree with Chris, you can bet you bottom dollar they will be kicked and fouled on a regular basis

The interesting for me is we've won two games and already the vultures are circling Andre Green or its just poor journalism.

And I'd like to say hi to my fellow villains, use to be on this forum a few years back but forgot my login. UTV.


6.) 23 Aug 2017 22:01:21
I agree with what you're saying, I'm just getting twitchy as we get closer to the window closing, and trying to come up with contingency plans for any variables that might happen. IMO Kodjia is made for the Prem, hope it is for us when we go up 👍🏻

UTV.


7.) 23 Aug 2017 22:46:39
Robbie Keane is a like for like replacement for Kodjia? Allyp mate your either off your rocker completely or living 10 years ago. To answer your question if we were to sell Kodjia for 30mil+ I'd go for Shane long, Forestieri, lassa Vibe - someone who can beat a man, that's Kodjias biggest strength. Dwight Gayle maybe.


8.) 24 Aug 2017 05:31:47
Keane for McCormack as a like for like, as he is not an out and out striker, I was taking into account that we wouldn't have all of £30M+ to spend, maybe half of that, £15M for Long, Keane just wages. It's FFP again, the maths on the players you've mentioned Chris would be over £30M so back to square 1. If Keane doesn't do it for ya, how about Gary Hooper, wouldn't cost the earth, better than Gabby?

UTV.


9.) 24 Aug 2017 09:37:38
15million for Shane long? Don't think anyone would pay that even if they asked. Lassa Vibe has had bids of 4mil rejected quite recently so push that to 6, forestieri wanted to leave not so long ago and is temperamental, you dangle the carrot and he'll be handing in transfer requests, 10mil. Dwight Gayle would be the only one in which we'd probably be happy to pay over 10 for, even in today's market. Not really much point talking about it however because no ones left yet, Kodjia hasn't been linked away and he's crocked at the minute so don't worry too much.


 

 

19 Aug 2017 22:01:37
The season starts now then fellas? Kodjia back soon, players getting fitter, got a sneaky 1 that Leeds might go in for McCormack (transfer only, no loan or forget it) now it looks like Wood is off and they've got the cash. Bang the kids in against Wigan and give them the freedom to go for it, 3 points against Bristol with rested players, a surprise loan signing or 2, onwards and upwards

2.) 20 Aug 2017 00:09:40
Tick my agree box and because you have, someone will disagree with you, even though you have been positive, and we can't be having those shenanigans going on round here WTW lol? 😉 On another subject, Davies, roughly the same age as Kane when he started off becoming a goal machine because his manager stuck with him, and at a higher level than the Championship, could be the 1 we've been waiting for?

I didn't mean literally swap him lol, I'd rather him than Kodjia in as much as he's a team player and not a selfish player, selfish worked for Shearer and works for Kane, Kodjia ain't nowhere near their standard. As an aside, didn't Bruce sign Long for Hull? So he fancies Long, not literally again lol?

Not going to throw names in here, but there's got to be a market for players who represent a 'lesser' country in next years World Cup, that are warming the bench at their clubs, without a sniff of a regular run. I'm thinking someone who's a superstar in Africa or wherever but plays for Milan or Sevilla etc, Scandinavian players even?
