Got a bit of deadwood off the squad, mostly loans, without replacing them. Moreno looks an excellent signing already but the only other was Duran who will need to be hungry like the wolf to get a chance. Saying that, he is one of two strikers we have now. Shame we didnt get a backup CM or striker
Genuinely thought we wouldn’t get any one in so it’s been alright i guess.
Only ever seen the midfield lad against us and he was better than our midfielders so that’s alright, weghorsts shit but you know what you’re gonna get so can work round it rather than relying on someone who can’t play 60% of the time.
If we don’t get bought i think this seasons gonna be a false dawn though because we won’t be able to bring anyone in in the summer and we’re desperate for a striker.
4/10 for anyone else probably a 8/10 based on current circumstances
Sold: two fringe players (Victor Jensen, Lissandro Magallan)
Released: one first choice player (Daley Blind)
Loaned out: two young players (Jay Gorter, Kik Pierie)
Loan cancelled: two fringe players (Lucas Ocampos, Mohamed Ihattaren)
Bought: one goalkeeper (Geronimo Rulli) and one youngster (Mika Godts)
A new goalie was an urgent requirement but there are loads of other gaps in the squad to be filled. Looks like nothing significant will happen until a new manager has been installed.
5/10 for Oxford. Got depth in a couple of areas we badly needed depth in, and looks like pretty quality incoming too.
But two sort of heartbreaking outgoings - our coach John Mousinho went to manage Pompey, and for some reason at the very end of deadline day we sent our best striker Matty Taylor on loan to Port Vale. Absolutely gutted about that.
Wout Weghorst - 10/10, no complaints, one of the greatest things to have happened in the history of the club
Jack Butland - As above
Marcel Sabitzer - Dunno, nobody has ever seen him play football before
Spent quite a bit on players I don’t really know much about
BUT didn’t sack the PE teacher, and not sure getting a load of players in before a new manager (when the manager definitely won’t be here in 6 months) is the way to do business with transfers tbh.
