We now been linked with E Vryma Nandh Isdog.

{Ed001's Note - you are linked with him every season Markro!}

Oh, believe me, I know.

Arnautovic linked with a return. Why am I not surprised?

Markro

1.) 03 May 2021 23:14:52
we have been linked with everyone and his dog nothing i see online or in the press surprises me.


2.) 05 May 2021 20:33:52
Well as stated we are and have been linked with a lot of players but for me only one stands out and the only one that has played in the premiership who scores regular is Abraham. If we can't afford him then look for someone in the lower leagues but don't get anyone who hasn't
played in any of our leagues. Learn from our past mistakes with overseas players. If we qualify for Europe we need another centre forward to complement Micky so make your mind up board if u want to play with the big boys find the money for Moyes
Also a priority is get Lingard in,
What do the rest of u guys think?


3.) 06 May 2021 08:43:54
Have to ask why Abraham isn't getting into the Chelsea side whilst Werner isn't scoring goals. Would love to hear from Chelsea fans what they think of him

He can obviously score goals but is their an attitude problem.


We have a great dressing room at the moment wouldn't like to see that change.


4.) 06 May 2021 11:32:58
Mercerl, if you look at the stats, Abraham and Giroud both score more goals than Werner, but they don't create anywhere near as many chances for their team mates. in that stat alone, Werner is in a league of his own when compared to the other two.


5.) 06 May 2021 14:08:45
It is to do with Style of play. Tammy does not have the attributes to play in a Tuchel team, just like Haller was not suited to the style of play WHU had to play.
At PSG Tuchel had Neymar, Di Maria and Mbappe, while at Chelsea he clearly prefers a combo of Werner, Haevertz, Pulisic and Zyech with Mount in behind them. Abraham and Giroud both stand out as completely different types of player to the other mentioned. He clearly likes thee quick and technical players up front as they are quite a conservative team who are set out not to concede.
This is why i am not 100% sold on Tammy. Very expensive numbers being touted about for him, and he may not be ideal.

{Ed002's Note - It is nothing to do with style of play.}

Results haven’t gone our way this weekend, but things are in our hands.

I am, however, concerned about our lack of depth in the squad. Rice and Antonio are serious absentees.

Markro

1.) 11 Apr 2021 03:36:47
I think we all agree with you Marko, Moyes is still building and i'm sure he has his eyes on who he wants to sign in the summer, we are going in the right direction which we haven't done for a long time.
[The likes of big Sam who thinks staying in the premiership is good enough for WH] well Sam it wasn't.
Its been a great journey with Moyes and his backroom, let's see where he takes us, and see who arrives in the next transfer window.


2.) 11 Apr 2021 21:59:20
weekend ain't over yet markro.

Some interesting Patson Daka media noise.

Markro

1.) 10 Jan 2021 14:27:46
He is some player . Would love to see us sign him.


2.) 10 Jan 2021 15:04:56
We are being linked by the media to anyone and everyone, we wait and see but not surprised if either we sign no-one or Arnie returns.


3.) 11 Jan 2021 08:07:17
exwhuemployee has said on his pateron that our main 3 targets are daka, dia and adam armstrong.


4.) 11 Jan 2021 10:29:16
I just read all the rumours on news sites and it appears we will have 5 new strikers by next week - happy days, the options we will have at our disposal is fantastic - or is this just the standard transfer window where we will get someone on the last day who was our fourth choice?


5.) 11 Jan 2021 10:42:35
I'd be happy with any of them 3.


6.) 11 Jan 2021 11:03:53
After loosing a mint on Hallar i would leave overseas players alone unless they are under 5mil. or have already have played in our Prem. or Championship.
Hallar was a big lose and it looks like we are going to take another big hit on Anderson.
We picked our best foreward AM from stoke, a lot of clubs are struggling now, its time to look in our own back yard. We can't afford another buying another 20 mil player who can't handle the English game.
Clubs look at overseas payer and the do look good in the French league but its a big gamble if they can adapt to our league Chelea have brought 3 forwards 240mil. not one of them would replace a fit Antonio,


7.) 11 Jan 2021 15:57:01
I agree Bideford, it is important Moyes and the board choose wisely. France may be a place to pick up bargains ATM but still NO guarnatee they will transition to PL. Dia and Daka have pace and LOOK like they have the physical attributes we need, and they are young and fit the "young and hungry" RedBull mantra Moyes is after. But will they transition or just be another Batshuayi?
Josh King however does offer proven PL quality though, and at the right price i think he would be a good option for us. At 28 though he will not represent much of a return on investment once he has played two years with us. While I agree (and said myself) that he has played a lot out wide in the past (worth noting if any of you look at his scoring stats), but from going to a LOT of Bmouth games (i live here and had a season ticket to accompany my nephew) i always said to my Bmouth mates that Josh is at his BEST up front and not out wide.
I really do not know enough about the others to have a worthwhile opinion, other than Youtube vids. Maybe Ed's can lend us their opinions on whether they could cut it in the PL.

{Ed001's Note - don't know anything about Dia, but Daka does look a bit special. Bit too fond of talking about how great he is going to become though, which worries me. If he was going to say Real Madrid, then that's not so much of a problem, but going to West Ham might see him agitate for a move because he thinks he is better than the Hammers. Bit like Arnautovic did etc.

As for Armstrong, I have seen a little bit of him this season, he has changed so much from when I saw him as a kid with Newcastle. So much improvement playing regular football and looks like the kind of player Moyes would work well with. I am not so sure King is, as he is too fragile, and Moyes likes his players to work hard, King would pop his hamstring. Armstrong looks a decent bet, though he is not one I would have expected Moyes to be so keen on as he looks short when I have seen him. Moyes normally likes a player, in pretty much every position, who is particularly good in the air.}


8.) 11 Jan 2021 16:56:57
He's under 6ft 5'8 i think I read which is definitely small for moyes, but needs must maybe?

{Ed001's Note - maybe he is learning to work a different way? Moyes has had a lot of time to think about things, so maybe he is evolving his football ideology a bit.}


9.) 11 Jan 2021 17:16:39
He likes the red bull model and is definitely moving to a young strong and motivated squad, maybe he has had his eyes opened to new ways, let's see shall we Ed.


10.) 12 Jan 2021 09:11:40
moyes likes the red bull model problem is you need owners to help fund that to but our owner is to busy adding his son and wife to our board of directors.


11.) 12 Jan 2021 11:28:41
Im. keeping an open mind :) forever optimistic.

It’s official. Haller has gone.

Markro

1.) 08 Jan 2021 10:52:23
Yep, but what's the plan we wonder?


2.) 08 Jan 2021 12:34:36
I don’t think they will drag out finding a replacement as we’ve got a good winnable run of games coming up so we need a striker to give us the best possible chance of winning those games and maybe getting us to our best finish in the prem since it started.


3.) 08 Jan 2021 13:23:17
TBH I am delighted we are acting and not standing still in this window. Haller is still a very good footballer, BUT the guy just doesn't suit Moyes's football, and does not have the attributes we need for our system. Moyes was stubborn by not adapting slightly, but I really like to see that we are TAKING ACTION to get what Moyes wants/ needs despite taking a financial loss on Haller. Board could have easily said no we are not taking a loss this big. Credit to the BOARD and credit to MOYES. Let's hope Moyes doesn't buy another Hugill to replace him . I have faith.
I'd also like to correct fans on here who have been saying he does not work hard. You are frankly wrong in my opinion. He does work hard and run, he just doesn't have the attributes to do it the way we want/ need. For this reason I am very happy we are selling. We need PACE, and Haller simply doesn't have it. Don't ask a man to give birth!
Haller has worked hard in what has clearly been a role he cannot play, and that must be very frustrating for him but i still belive he gave it his best shot. I wish him all the best at Ajax.

We do NOT want any competitive, crunching tackles between Rice and Soucek tonight, thank you.

Markro

 

 

27 May 2021 18:33:10
The Lingard loan was win/ win. Brilliant for him as well as us. It looks like we might not sign him permanently. If so, I’ve no regrets.

Thx, Jesse.

Markro

1.) 28 May 2021 08:11:42
He tailed off towards the end of the campaign but if the truth be told I am not sure we'd of been in contention without him.

I wouldn't be disappointed if we signed him permanently, but at the same time. if it doesn't happen and we sign another player (Pereira from West Brom has been linked) . I won't be disappointed either.


 

 

26 May 2021 10:03:38
. and so the window speculation machine creaks into gear.

Great way to end the season. It’s been a brilliant ride this year.

Irrespective of what happens tomorrow, we have had a fantastic season.

That’s the post.

Markro

1.) 22 May 2021 22:51:31
and without a recognized striker.


2.) 23 May 2021 08:58:29
I think we’re more or less guaranteed 7th unless there’s a big swing in goal difference with Everton, so we will be playing in Europe one way or another, but we really want 6th place, just hope they will turn it on in front of 10k fans.

We have been very lucky with Rice/ Soucek fitness, but this is a real blow
and highlights how desperately we need CM back up like Kral.

Good keeper and he wants gam time. Pope would be another of interest to us.

It’s all pinch of salt stuff until the signing is done.

I’m thinking we should preface our transfer speculation posts with, “It has been reported that…”.
