Are there any comparable clubs? Apart from Huddersfield they all have foreign owners, willing to invest, or bigger fan bases, with the money that generates.
We are unique.

As frustrating that is for us as supporters imagine how Garlick, Rigg and Dyche feel. Thankfully Garlick has the balls not to take punts on players like Niasse just to appease you.

If we don't sign anyone it's because they don't believe it would be right for the club or they wouldn't come anyway. Garlick will know he'll take grief if no one new is signed but will deal with that rather than take punts


So we aren't prepared to take a gamble on anyone, but then we aren't prepared to pay for proven quality either? So what exactly is our strategy?

Burnley can't compete with Fulham for a transfer. They spent £100m+ this year and wages to match.

I agree, we're in a pretty unique position. On our side, we used to have the fact that it looked like we'd be 100% safe for another year but we don't even have that now.

Not saying there's an obvious solution, but only long term plan seems to be scouting at a lower level for those hidden gems.

Not really that much in common with us have they ?!!

I agree that Huddersfield are probably the nearest equivalent club to us in this league in terms of size, ownership, transfer spend etc. We may have a bigger wage bill than them but that may just reflect us having a few more seasons in this league

I'm sure we miss out on targets all the time, but I can't see many where I'm surprised the player picked the other club.

If we dont sign anybody will the remaining transfer budget get carried over for the next season ?

Dyche expected a tough window and it is certainly proving to be a triple glazed window for some UTC posters. Get spending Garlick FFS, if you believe some UTC posters we make £50m per year :roll:

We've got money to spend but so has everyone else. Even Championship clubs have got £10m+ to spend on players.

I think we should have taken a few more gambles on lower league players though.

Read what he actually said - it was about missing out on signings to “comparable” clubs...not transfers like Mawson.

The only signings I can think of to a comparable club that we may have been interested in are Clucas and Pritchard. One was a £16m disaster and the other is apparently on £100k a week and about to be relegated....so probably dodged a bullet with both

Pritchard on 100k a week at 'Udders? No chance...

As for Niasse: I believe that a striker like Niasse or similar, would be ideal for us to bring on to run the channels hard when we are leading late in the game for a counter attack!

We're actually crying out for it

Somebody posted a link on here a while ago showing Pritchards wages...£5m a year.
Don’t know whether it was factual or not but the other wages on the link seemed realistic.

I was more shocked at the £16m fee.

We agreed 8m or thereabouts for Clucas before pulling out of the deal.

Ian Butterworth is our Head of European Recruitment, at least I think he is.

In all honesty I'm not entirely sure that he is still with us, he might have moved on. Going off the influx of foreign players since June 2017 it's a bit difficult to tell if we have anyone in that particular role at the moment.

Hull to Swansea not Swansea to Stoke.
Think we were bidding about £12m first time round till a desperate Clement paid silly money.

John McGInn and Joe Bryan in the last window, possibly.

Steven Zuber, who went to relegation candidates Vfb Stuttgart on loan in this window.

From the outside looking in our major failing seems to be that when we target players we don't pay enough attention to how likely a player is to move. In the last window we spent an eternity dicking about over J Rod and Dawson to no avail.

Then we went after Hart, Vydra and Gibson who where all readily identifiable as "easy movers" and we signed them up quickly with no fuss for respectable prices.

It's no use looking at players who tick all of our boxes and setting out our stall to bring them in if the chance of them leaving their current club is slim to non. The best outcome that we can expect in such cases is for their club to charge a very hefty premium to release a player that they would rather keep. With far less movement in the winter window this consideration becomes even more important. The longer duration and increased amount of player buying/selling in the Summer window gives clubs a bit more freedom.

It's one of the reasons why Arsenal are targetting Denis Suarez. You only have to look at the Barca and Barca B squads to see that they are over flowing with quality midfielders and probably wouldn't be averse to moving a couple on. If they where trying to buy him instead of loan him then he would already be in their squad. I'm guessing that the only reason they are struggling is because Barca suspect that if they sanction the deal he will fill a stop gap role for Arsenal until the Summer window and they have no real intention of buying him at the end of his loan.

The point is you don't form your short list based on your ideal "love to have" players, you form it from the players who are most likely to move. That is the best way to ensure respectable prices and increase the possibility of getting a deal over the line. You identify the "easy movers" in a window first and then you carefully weed out all the ones incapable of doing the job required. The ones that are left are the ones you go after.

The problem with fixating on "the one" is that you generally end up with nobody.

We are a professional football club making consecutive 22m and 30m profits whilst in our 4th season in the premier league, do you think we would really be making "half hearted" offers for players?

Yes, it doesnt go any where else, just adds to the budgets year on year.

We wouldnt advertise making consecutive 22m and 30m profits if it just dissapears.

If it isnt worth spending ( or you are just going to waste it ) save it up for a rainy day.

I would say we make at least two half hearted bids for every player we try and sign. We always try and get value.

If we go down, I guess it depends on whether any players leave and need replacing. If no players were to leave (first teamers), I doubt we'd need to sign any/many to come back up, so they'd sit on the money.

Some might want to stay in the PL and others would go backwards. The reason coming straight back up isn’t as easy as it sounds.

Well as long as we keep the season ticket prices frozen that's the main thing.
That's the thing that benefits us as fans.

Suppose we can't have it both ways

We were heavily linked with Bryan but given he went to Fulham and the way they beat us to Mawson then not sure we can compete (or choose not to) with what they are paying.
Don’t think we were ever after or linked with McGinn or Zuber.

The rest of your post I think everyone agrees our approach has not been perfect by a long way but it has us what it is

As for Niasse: I believe that a striker like Niasse or similar, would be ideal for us to bring on to run the channels hard when we are leading late in the game for a counter attack!

We're actually crying out for it


WE may well be. Not sure the coaching staff are tho...

We are a professional football club making consecutive 22m and 30m profits whilst in our 4th season in the premier league, do you think we would really be making "half hearted" offers for players?

Yes

Why we don't/can't sign players from players from prem clubs that are not playing. Have a look at SPOTRAC.COM.

So £50m profit from two successive PL seasons? . It’s not really that much is it. You could soon whittle it away with two £15-£18 m signings plus wages that might not work out too well. Then you’d have ‘no’ profit.

But you might still be getting 100m a year.

I'm not (yet) as frustrated as I might have been with our dealings :roll: this window, because nobody else is really dealing either bar the odd loan move, so it seems it's not just us who can't get players to move and are somewhat stagnant.
