If Lowry was to be promoted into the first team squad and take bacuna’s place would people be happy with that? While I think we will sign a right wing could this be clearing out some deadwood to give youth a chance?
I would like to see the young guys get a chance,but it has to be gradual,but I'd prefer giving them their chance ahead of the likes of the Barkers and Bacunas, at least they'll be hungry to make an impact,like Paterson did

Really doesn't look good in terms of incomings

I don't think Patterson leaving surprised us either.

My concern is that we would surely have moved with a degree of urgency if the money was there upon Patterson leaving.

Yes, the Hagi injury is a factor but that issue doesn't create money.

Always said about our overspending that we can't go from one extreme to the other & while COVID is a factor, we've done it again. Just like the days of Minty. Firewall then buy loads of players...rinse and repeat.

Another one outed.

Hopefully this means we are putting together a package to make Skov Olsen the highest paid player in the history of the club IMO.
I’ve never seen Olsen, but I hope you are joking with this considering we had a goalie 20 years ago on nearly double what the current highest paid player gets.

I think our hit rate overall is really quite poor, scouting wise. Are only big sale to date is home grown. Greegs and Davis were knowns so exclude them, thereafter them and excluding Alfie who was from the previous era…it’s not that great.
Our hit rate with midfielders needs to improve, no more Zungus or Bacunas please.
We did alright initially when Gerrard came in and those players are still holding us together in there.

I think the problem we have is we have progressed our starting 11 over the last few years from potenial to 5-10 million pound players, some even more and to say we'll bring in better than what we already have is tricky.

DM me and I'd be happy to prove you wrong, otherwise keep the accusations to yourself.

Unless I've just returned from a parallel universe, plenty of people on social media have expressed similar sentiment.

Also corrected the first line and acknowledged I hadn't worded it well

You not think we could possibly get away with no RB cover brought in?

If we did that and it put more wages to another player in RW/AM then it's a risk I'd take.
I’d rather not no. Tavernier became a better player consistently when he had Patterson pushing him week on week. We said we wouldn’t come out the window with a weaker squad. Going from having two good RB’s to a RB and a CB for cover is weaker.

You'd think we paid £5m for Bacuna in the summer & were now paying him off in full the way some folk are going on.

I don't think there were high expectations from either side on this one.

My mate has just messaged saying it's a 'disaster'.....think because we didn't do much business in the summer there was too much expected from some

Is that not a Teesside dish?

Parmo - lovely if is too.

Simpson and barker out would be a good departure window.

If we could get a decent midfielder in for Bacuna it may even allow lundstram to go

Hope we are working hard on extensions (oo er)

Next summer we have a lot of good players ooc

Alfie and aribo and helander need to sign before summer or be sold to keep that standard up

I've just been told he was one of our highest earners and was who Goldson was moaning about.

Some people just talk utter nonsense :))

Indeed. When GvB was asked about Lowry becoming a member of the First Team squad - like King now is - he was very non-committal. Lowry trains with them but hasn't been moved up, and given his initials on the kit, the same way King has.

As you say, Lowry did well the other night - but it wasn't the stellar performance suggested by the hyperbole on here.

I think he might get another run out tonight from the bench.
Gio needs to make a decision now with Lowry is he going to play minutes that will then make him ineligible for the B team meaning he has nowhere to go other than the bench or is he going to keep him developing with the B team. He certainly earned his chance to start tonight after his performance on Friday but if Arfield is fit enough I suspect he will start ahead of him.

Huddersfield are due a large sell on fee.
Not sure about the sell on percentage but we paid very little up front with future payments based on performance

We will probably not lose anything and get his full wages of the books

What are we expecting in the door ? Loans or permanents ?

I still can't see us forking out serious dough this window.

That point will come. Can feature 5 times for the First Team before it renders him ineligible for the B Team. However, the way that was worded in the rules said once you'd played 5 times you couldn't switch until the next window opens. Not sure how games DURING a transfer window count.

When you think about logically my man he only has to make that decision after 4games so there’s no instant right now demand on that

Re Lowry London to a Lemon the same urgent posts of play him will swiftly reverse to ripping his confidence apart if he were to be exposed to the crushing demands of Rangers first team starter .

We paid nothing up front.

All appearance based with a large sell on.

Decent structure of deal for us.

I think the three possibles we have a feel of genuine interest albeit that all appeared pre-GvB are Skov Olsen , Rothwell and Wallace . Realistically all three are fees if they become a GvB arrival this window

do we no owe huddersfield money for him?
“It’s appearance-based, European-based, with a big sell-on, we’ve got a significant sell-on, where we will ultimately at least get our money back.”

Thats what their chairman said in September about the deal. When he says money back he's referring to the £2m they paid for him from Groningen.

Loans.

I'll be surprised if we're committing significant money when the transfer budget could radically change (for the better) in the Summer. I think it's a calculated risk that the current squad has enough to see us to the title.

Surely what they get back is purely dependent on how much we sell him for? For them to get their money back he'd need to be going for a significant fee which I can't see happening
