Transfer targets 2020/21

I don't normally bash on other leagues, in fact I'm pretty keen to do the opposite, particularly in this section of foxestalk. So I hope when I say this it doesn't come off like I've just got some entrenched, elitist view of the Bundesliga - if Bailey played in the Prem he'd be just another Demarai Gray. 

 

His end product and football intelligence are shocking. For me, the biggest difference between Gray and Bailey is that at a young age, Bailey was playing against muck, starting regularly, built up his confidence and got a reputation. 

 

It's like we were saying about Edouard the other day and young guys benefiting from being at Celtic for a few years. 

 

Gray gets bought up by us early, then barely gets a kick, occasionally finds himself chucked in at a club where he's then out of his depth, does **** all, doesn't progress and stagnates.

 

But they're actually both massively limited. Bailey has these odd purple patches every eighteen months where he scores a few goals, gets a bit of hype, gets some love on FIFA cos he's fast, everyone starts buzzing about him on social media, linking him to big clubs etc. Then he just vanishes in to being his usual bollocks self again. 

 

He's a great example of a player that doesn't really live up to his hype. 

 

Given what we'd have to pay, I wouldn't really want him here. He'd frustrate the **** out of everyone. I mean there's people on here that have concluded already that Under is wasteful and/or frustrating, wait til they see Bailey. 

 

I get your point but I've seen a lot of Bailey this season and he looks to be starting to realise his potential. He looks a completely different player to last season. In terms of the comparison with Under I don't think that's close to being valid or accurate, Bailey has produced far more than Under in terms of end product. This season alone he's got 17 goal involvements, 9 of which are goals at the half-way point. You'd imagine those stats will be even more impressive by the end of the season if he maintains that sort of form. If he does the big clubs will be sniffing around him again.

 

Under has never got close to producing that in he last two years, in fact the most he's ever managed in an entire season is 16 goal involvements, 3 years ago. 

 

If he was available for decent money last season he wuld have been exactly the type of player I could have seen Rodgers moving his game onto another level.

 

Like Ric said he's probably not value given what it'd cost to get him this season due to him playing well but if he can maintain this form he'll be lightyears beyond what guys like Gray and Under have or will ever produce. Only time will tell I guess.

Definitely after an attacking mid if we can get one in then

 

 

And it'll definitely be a loan. Don't often hear him come out and say stuff like that so you'd assume so as saying something like that would really push up transfer fees

Still think we’ll end up getting Lingard on a short loan to replace Praet. Especially now he’s been cut form the Man Utd squad. To be fair he has a lot to prove and does have talent. Maybe BR could get something out of him?

Was just about to come on here and suggest Lingard. Would offer a similar type of player as Praet in his ability to go beyond the front man, and decent pressing ability.

With him being cut from the United squad I would imagine the finances could be decent on the deal too.


Only issue could be United not wanting him to go to a direct rival?

The sort of player like Barkley and Alli that everyone takes the piss out of but as soon as they go on loan and kickstart their career, they'd be going wild that their club didn't have a risk free punt at them on loan.

With Rodgers now definitely wanting another attacking midfielder...

 

Of course Alli and Lingard will more than likely leave their respective clubs, Alli like Eriksen would probably be out of our wage range, Lingard can fvck off.

 

I said yesterday, I’d look at the situation in Ligue 1; however I’d be tempted to enquire to Leipzig about the possibility of taking one of their players on loan.

 

They are loaded with attacking midfielders, they’ve just added yet another one in Dominik Szoboszlai.
