Swansea City Transfer Thread 07:15 - May 17 with 78252 viewsHeadmaster

Thought we might need one of these now that silly season has started.

Matt Grimes is open to joining Everton from "Football Insider" - how reliable are they? They say in another article that Brighton are looking at Chris Wilder after being frustrated in their attempt to talk to Potter.

Also a report in the Evening Standard saying James to Man United for 15-20 million. Rumor on Twitter (I know) is that we're getting Chong on loan.

TBH I can see both struggle in the PL.
While Grimes has improved immensely from the start of the season t has been his adaptability that has impressed - sold everywhere.
James ... has he got the natural awareness to turn his speed into something really effective in the upper echelons? No sure. His work rate and defensive duties at Swansea may be less called for in a different team and therefore he can concentrate almost solely on attack.
But both will leave.
What's needed?
Depends if you are desperate for promotion or take a longer term view.
IMO, we can reasonable expect to be in the top 6 next season with the squad we now have. So no need to spend on players who are not going to improve the team.
Once again left back is light and right back also needs topping up if Naughton leaves. Surprised Tyler Reid was released as Rushesha is probably a year or two of regular fist team appearances and Govea seems injury prone.
CB - fine
Midfield - depends on Grimes, Celina, James and Routledge but replacing Routs & Grimes would be the most difficult. Not sure about Byers YBH head drops quickly and is prone to losing concentration. Give Asoro the same game time as James and he'll be more than good enough, might Dhanda take over from Celina?
Strikers - CBR alongside McBurnie works but he doesn't seem to be capable of take up the mantle of 20 goal a season player should McBurnie leave or is injured.

In addition to out of contract leavers and those loaned - players who I wouldn't mss - Fulton, John, McKay,
If improvements can be brought in - anywhere really with striker, DCM and fullbacks being priority.

Poll: Which team would win?

Totally agree with Mckay. Haven't seen anything in Asoro so far but happy to be proved wrong. Centre half could well be an issue if VDH is sold and with CCV loan spell at an end. Both Fulton and John can do a job IMHO particularly John if in the right formation

Not much to disagree with but for me John (and increasingly) Roberts are both good gong forward but not great full backs.

I’d take a look at Tunnicliffe who’s been released by millwall. Was rated in the same youth team as Pogba. Hasn’t quite clicked for him yet after Fulham and Millwall, but there’s a player there. We need Trevor to take us back to this style of player, who hasn’t worked elsewhere but given a bit of confidence here, can flourish.

Sheff Utd have been interested for a while. Another bidding war, hopefully.

McBurnie to the Prem for the kind of price we should be asking would be a hell of a gamble. The game is littered with prolific Championship strikers who failed to make the step up.

Pain or damage don't end the world. Or despair, or f*cking beatings. The world ends when you're dead. Until then, you got more punishment in store. Stand it like a man... and give some back.

So if McBurnie goes who will be our striker for next season? CBR? We were lacking in that department to begin with.

Centre half from Peterborough was outstanding for them last season according to report. .

He'll go, more likely Brighton now?

Cardiff fans thought they might have gone for him, at least if it stops that!

More likely Brighton because Sheff Utd's owners are taking each other to court which is going to make business very tricky for them this summer.

Ollie going. James going. I expect more will follow. Even our self serving Chairman buggaring off as it is so bad. This plus redundancy notices everywhere. Oh deep joy.
....and people have the nerve to diss Potter for jumping ship.

There’s a race? At last some good news. Let’s hope they don’t trip up before the finish line or realise that it’s pretty much one horse.

Not related to swansea, however i think it highlights how some of the posters on here clearly know nothing about football...
