Dyches last good signing

Post by cricketfieldclarets » Mon May 13, 2019 2:34 pm

Who was it, how much and when?

Genuine question.

An area hopefuly Rigg will help push to the next level this summer.

Westwood, he's been fantastic this season.

If we can get him a partner, we could have a very good central pairing at this level

I think our front 2 have done really well, both into double figures again...is no mean feat...but defo Westwood what a bargain.

Will be really interesting to see where we are at in August with a proper pre-season. The likes of Brady, Defour will hopefully reap the benefits of it...Dwight aswell. Hes done brilliantly, but struggled beyond 70 mins at times, not sure if he was fully involved in the last (interupted) pre season.

Joey Barton was pretty exceptional, in many ways and all for the price of an omelette, which the boss funded himself.

Not sure of his involvement with some. Perhaps players well down his 'possibles' list.

Vydra looks like a decent player....in his short playing moments

JBG? Pope? Ward? Did he sign Tarks? Wood? Cork (last season any road). Taylor? Did he sign Heaton? Hendrick?

I think Gibson will turn out to be a good signing. He wasn't cheap but we probably paid about the going rate for that level of defender. We were pretty fortunate with injuries/suspensions in defence this season with them only missing a handful of games but we certainly needed someone else in there just in case.

He’s signed players that have, in the main, fit into the team - not necessarily great individuals but key components in how we play and what we have achieved.

I think there is a lot more to it than just looking at a player as an individual (probably a lot more than most of us see from 90 minutes each week).

Gibson could still prove to be a great signing, maybe Vydra too.

Dyche has made some signings that still raise eyebrows but in the main, most have contributed significantly to our achievements over the last four years or so.

I wouldn't be surprised if Gibson went this summer. He can't be happy, how is he ever going to get a chance when Ben Mee is clearly undroppable?

All I will say is if we start next season with the only acquisitions during the transfer window being 39 year old media darlings in a similar vein to Podcast Pete we will be nailed on relegation fodder.

Our consistent “ difficult market” approach to transfer windows means, this time, we could be in for Razor Ruddock as back up for Tarks......

You actually mean "latest good signing" as "last good signing" means that he won't make any more.
Sorry to be such a pedant, but there you go.
I'll go with offering a full contract to Dwight McNeil

Andre Gray and Barton-these two guys got us back in the PL. Two great signings at the time.I sense we would still be in the Championship. Grays goals got us a huge points tally

last good signing would imply that he is is not going to make any more.

I'm sure he will make good signings in the future.

I could add another way of putting it "SD's most recent good signing" :D

Wood was the last good signing, he was after Westwood I think, what ever you think, his goal return for £15m is very good

Dyche has signed good players more often than not. All managers get a certain percentage wrong. You can't point to the Howe signings and talk about inherited players anymore. We have avoided relegation in part because of Dyche's ability to pick a player that will fit the ethos and the system. If anything it is this ability that we rely on. Pre-Rigg it was all about Dyche in transfer dealings.

Wood although streaky and frustrating has provided a solid goals return. Taylor, Bardsley and Westwood helped us turn our season around. If Tarky leaves Gibson will be a great replacement.

The Crouch signing was lamentable though. Even then, I can see the rationale behind him signing a year extension as a fourth striker if it allows us to strengthen central midfield.
