Signed for Barnsley

Terrible player.

Maidstoned Eagle 01-07-2017 07:20 PM

Thanks for that one assist.

cpfcben 01-07-2017 07:24 PM

atrocious signing by us.

WorthingEagle 01-07-2017 07:29 PM

What was it? £3m? Due diligence indeed. More like 'He's played for Man Utd and Spurs, he must be good".

Kai 01-07-2017 07:32 PM

Surprised he got a deal with a decent Championship side. Would've expected League One for him

desperado 01-07-2017 07:37 PM

Another panic signing on the last day of a transfer window this one in the summer of 2014

Not surprised he played so few games nowhere near Premier League standard

Allardyce said in his last press conferences at the end of last season on planning for 2017-18 - 'important to get your targets identified early, even more important to get them signed early

Going in to our fifth season in the Premier League we still haven't learned

Bet you wouldn't be moaning if Allardyce was here and he hadn't signed anyone yet. Let De Boer have a chance first and see how this plays out.

Hopefully there were a number of clauses on that deal that was never met. Having seen the Lucas Lima leaked fax, I imagine that is how a lot of deals get done but the overall figure is released/increased for sensationalism.... I hope.

Good luck to the young man. Seemed to have his confidence shattered.

Hope he can find a home for himself at enjoy his football again. Always came across as somewhat shy, which is not good trait for a professional footballer in 2017.

Are you Richard Glen on Twitter? Because people are laughing at you for saying this on there, just as much as we are on here.

Did Allardyce leave any nuggets of wisdom on how to catch up on transfers after the manager buggers off out of the blue?

desperado 01-07-2017 08:37 PM

I'm talking about the quality of signings we have made since we got promoted

We have had eight transfer windows and have six or seven players of genuine Premier League quality and another six or seven who are good enough to be Premier League squad members

When this season's twenty five man squad is named it will contain five players who played in the play-off final in May 2013, Speroni, Ward, Delaney, Williams and Zaha

Since we got promoted we have signed a whole squad of twenty five who have not improved our starting eleven

Neal Alexander, Jack Hunt, Barry Bannan, Elliott Grandin, Florian Marange, Adlene Guédiora, Jimmy Kébé, Jerome Thomas, José Campaña, Tom Ince, Zeki Fryers, Fraizer Campbell, Kevin Doyle, Andrew Johnson, Chung-Yong Lee, Jordon Mutch, Foluwashola Ameobi, Yaya Sanogo, Emmanuel Adebayor, Patrick Bamford, Alex McCarthy, Bakary Sako, Steve Mandanda, Mathieu Flamini, Loïc Rémy

Maybe people think these players have been value for money and have improved the squad?

That Andrew Johnson did OK.

Not this time round, it's true.

We appear to still be in the division, unlike clubs who have spent more than us. As for the list, you could start right at the top with the clubs winning everything, and still find plenty of dud signings, even though they can take their pick of whoever they want.

Additionally, many of the players you mention were not signed for the purpose of 'improving our first eleven' anyway

Yeah, good luck to him for mugging off 3 Premier League clubs who have made him a multi millionaire for doing **** all.

A great example of all that's wrong with British footballers..

Good riddance Fryers.

Wow - tough crowd tonight!

Sums it up really; worth remembering too that were hopelessly unprepared for promotion and given the likelihood of relegation struggled to recruit under Holloway. As for Fryers, clearly not good enough but Spurs fans at the time felt we had a decent signing - had played a dozen or more games for them the previous season as they rotated with Europa League. Didn't seem to look out of place there. Don't wish him ill, but clearly not good enough in a team that can't cover for his mistakes. Needs to rebuild a career at a lower level, hopefully the experience here will have chastened him.
