2022/23 Wednesday transfer thread...


Recommended Posts

Kyle Joseph reminds me a bit of George Hirst which is probably why Cowley is also tracking him. 

He's quicker than he looks and isn't afraid to have a go but he's far from being a finished article (which Hirst was beginning to look like at this level during the last couple of months at Portsmouth) and a lot of things don't come off. He needs to just keep it simple and he'd benefit.

We have prospects at the club that are not far behind him and if we're bringing Joseph in just as cover then I'd rather see one of own get that chance.

Who is just behind him? The lad has nearly 50 appearances in the EFL, 10 of them in the Championship

I'm talking application of ability. As I said in my original post he is far from the finished article and if we're taking him to polish him up and send him back to Swansea then I'd rather give that game time to one of ours. I've already likened him to Hirst and think back to Hirst's loan at Rotherham. 

And on his game time. Those 10 Championship appearances. 7 of them under 10 mins and 5 of those were 2 mins or less. The other 3 were 16, 30 and 35. 

For Cheltenham he played 19 started 13 and only lasted 90 mins in 4 of those. In the others his sub appearances average around 20mins. 

Would you not give that bench place to one of our 23s instead of one of Swansea's?

Give me a name. Cadamarteri isn’t ready, he needs time with the 23’s and if all goes well a loan move to National League level could be on the cards.

I’ve never seen this kid play I don’t think but just the experience he’s had so far means he’s a better option than calling on our kids. With that behind him, he could be ready to develop even further this season

Nev. I purposely stayed away from naming 23s as it doesn't have to be a forward. If Joseph comes then he'll be behind Gregory, Windass, Smith, Paterson (and hopefully Wilks) in the pecking order. That makes him, based on his previous experience and our current squad, 4th choice at best. So who's to say Zottos, Cadamarteri, Durrant, Dunn or the new 23s forward (there will be at least one coming in) can't have that bench spot by mid October.

We need to show a pathway or there's no point to our 23s

I absolutely 100% refuse to click on any link to the Star. Life's far too short to trawl through the 8 million popups, subscription requests and videos autoplaying.

Plus the paper version is shit and they're just shit stirring wankers anyway.

In fairness Walks I haven't been unhappy with our business, is it 6 we've brought in so far with a striker clearly in the pipeline/being worked on too?

That doesn't far off replace what we've lost. I was half presuming we might have been waiting on the Prem squads to pick up another 1 or 2 and that'd be that?!

I was counting Hunt as a 6th. I presumed Wilks to be the pacy winger/striker and I know Dean has been mentioned, but not sure if there's legs in that?

Feels like left wing back has been an issue for about 3 years now, do we reckon Brown will be kicked the the kerb?

Based on what I've seen of him, my opinion 

For Northampton or Scunny 

 

Cos there's no way you're basing that on his Brentford or Pigs stints, he's started less than a dingle handful in the league in 2 years

Northampton, Brentford and pigs, seen him play 5 or 6 times and always been impressed, apart from his sending off for the pigs mind, madness that

 

What's your opinion of him? Wank because he played 2 games for pigs? 😄

Pleased for Brennan. If he can deal with the physical side he could be a really handy defender who is comfy on the ball. 
 

It’s been a slow week given what came before. Must be waiting for one or two where we may not be first option or clubs wanting to hold on for a bit. Wouldn’t be surprised if some of derbies “agreed in principle” players are on our radar and waiting to see how that goes. Barkhuizen was mentioned on here I think.

The majority of the loan market deals won't start for another one to two weeks after PL and Championship clubs start to firm up their own squads. 

We could be waiting for that to fill a couple of spots

Mendez-Laing to dirbeh 

Well he insinuated he was worth more than we offered, now he's signed for a club who are under restrictions,if that limits what they can pay we must have offered a real take it or leave it or derbys paying him in Charlie.

Wednesday sign youngster after he leaves Blackburn

They're a bit behind. He signed for us on June 23rd and it was announced on the club website a day later. 

Really good attacking midfield prospect who played a couple of 23s games for us at the back end of last season and scored a cracking goal against Millwall. The ability is there but there were previous questions over his aptitude and attitude. If we iron those out then we could have a decent player on our hands
