With the news filtering through that the Aussie has signed, now we are reporting that a bid for an Iranian forward has been rebuffed, but we are going back in for him .
Point 1 is where are we going to fit in al these forward thinking players
Point 2 is who are we selling to level the spending up a bit?

Agree0 Disagree0

I was thinking the same. Doesn't look good for us signing Jota permanently IMO.

10 Jan 2022 15:25:56
These players are costing nothing compared to the outlay for Jota and CCV -
If we move 3 or 4 players out, our net spend will be less than £10 Million.

10 Jan 2022 15:35:00
They're different players there's no huge outlay and we have been cursed all season with Injuries, better having too many as not enough.

10 Jan 2022 15:56:52
It's worth remembering the size of the squad rebuild that Ange faced in the summer and I'm delighted he's wasted no time in continuing this.

The J-League bhoys combined cost was less than 2.5M.

Barkas, Bolingoli, Soro, Ajeti will hopefully be moved on soon. Tunrbull is out for the foreseeable and for months we've been saying how poor the bench is.

I've also read that we were close to completing a deal for Jota - hopefully that goes through.

I totally agree mally as we have been crippled with injuries, just not sure where they are all going to fit in. I don’t think we are signing these as we aren’t getting jota by the way, maybe ange is seeing a couple of the Japanese lads might need a bit of time to settle in and was potentially easing them in for next season.
Either way hopefully when qualifiers come around we won’t be searching around for players as most have been signed this season.

Jota will sign. What player have we signed that can play Jota position.

10 Jan 2022 16:32:31
We don't really work on net spend we work on amortization. With everyone we have at the moment our annual amortization sits at £14.5m APPROX. If we get rid of Soro, Ajeti, Barkas and Boli. We reduce this by £3.4m per season. Interestingly with Jullien entering the final year of his contract we would reduce this by a further 1.5m if he resigns.

Given the historical accounts we seem happy with the amortization figure being between 13-15.5m per season. So if needed i think we still have a few quid we could spend.

10 Jan 2022 16:33:29
I should have mentioned the £14.5m figure incorporates Jota, CCV and McGree as permanent transfers.

10 Jan 2022 16:48:24
I honestly think they are planing life without Forrest and going to bin Mikey Johnstone nobody is safe no matter how long you've been at the club Ange clearly wants players that can step up and be called on right now Forrest and Johnstone are bringing nothing to the table right now in the way of injury prone or just under performing it's not got anything to do with not signing Jota on a permanent basis Ange wants his own lads in.

10 Jan 2022 17:25:02
I really hope we can and will get Jota and CCV on permanent contracts. And we do have something like 35 players now if that happens but there is a few that shouldn't be at the club and I hope we can shift them out in this window.

10 Jan 2022 18:24:04
I don’t really think we could bin Forrest AND Johnston. We need 4 homegrown and 4 association players in our 25 man Euro squad or we lose a place.

At moment we have

Welsh - if we don’t sell currently qualifies as B squad but won’t next year


Bain - who arguably time may be up

So we’re pretty thin on the homegrown players. And from the looks not sure if we have anyone ready to make the big step in the B team and don’t think there much association talent within our reach. I thought Hickey may have been a good answer but way out our price range now.

Tbhoy - another reason to bring Ferguson in? Lad would add a bit of steel to the midfield.

11 Jan 2022 07:03:30
We fit some in 1st half and some in second half. allowing us to play fast pace for 90 mins

Nearly every game i've watched we've blasted teams for at least 30 mins in 1st half with not much goal penetration, exception hibs away. we seem to naturally take a dip in levels during game also.

If these players can do whst ange wants then we have a bench capable of coming on and frightening teams when 1st 11 is hitting the natural dip in energy levels. not to mention cover for the injuries our intensity of play can cause.

11 Jan 2022 13:40:01
I think McGree if he comes will add steel and pace to our midfield, we don't need Ferguson imo.
