Buy & Sell...

Post by Smudge3920 »

Anyone think we should sell Tyler Roberts and go after Yan Dhanda?... Another creative MF with an ability to break down teams and find a way through (according to scouting reports)...

Morning Smudge

I'm on the side of loaning out Tyler - unless he's guaranteed more game time, he's still young and as we saw at the weekend he was one of our better players when he came on

I'd never heard of Yan Dhanda until he was mentioned along with us last week so don't know if he's an improvement on Tyler or not

Not pulling any trees up at Swansea

One goal, one assist & 2 yellows in his 9 appearances

A average rating of 6.5 in the championship

Is he good enough for the prem?

I suggest we require better & stop thinking like we are a club still in the 2nd tier of English football.

Five Championship clubs - Derby County, Sheffield Wednesday, Bournemouth, Preston North End and Cardiff City - have been credited with an interest in the Wales international.


Bielsa reaffirmed his commitment to Roberts and his faith in the young striker in a recent press conference but was not forthcoming on how much of role the 22-year-old could be expected to play in the second half of the season.

he's not available on a free

also he's not even had a full good season yet, just seems to be having a purple patch, time will tell if he's actually any good - PB has more top division goals than him this season

My error... he was a free agent when last picked up...and of course that changes everything about my opinion... and tbc I did not think for a minute he would replace Paddy

I’d look at bringing in some more bodies, but on the basis that there are departures as well.

The club ought to be considering having a conversation with Adam Forshaw, and realistically Berardi isn’t going to be able to contribute towards a top half finish.

That won’t bring cash in, but will free up some wages to use.

I’d consider selling Roberts if the price was right, along with either a permanent deal for Costa or a loan for Poveda.

Buying is different with Bielsa. There may be another player like Raphinha out there that would come at a great price and get in the 1st team quickly. But more likely we'd only be looking at players that would be a couple of months away from starting.

Since I'm not thinking about anyone coming in, I don't see much chance of selling anyone. But several players could surely benefit from a loan: Davis, Roberts, Poveda, Shackleton, Strujik. Probably don't see any going out though since Bielsa seems to want to have them as an option.

If we send them out on loan we'd probably struggle to fill the subs bench!
