PL Net spend so far + your 10 best signings

Page 3 of 3

I think Bale is going to have a huge impact. Hopefully we'll be able to return to games some time this season and get to see him in the flesh, again.

2.Leeds United are spending a lot of money, i'm not overly impressed with the players they have bought but they are designed to fit the system so will probably do well.

---------------

Sky sports etc a bit misleading, 15 million was for Costa, who was already with us, (loan to buy), same with Meslier 5 million, and around 10 million for 4 players that go into the U23s..

so its a bit misleading if you're outside looking in.. we've only actually boought two new first teamers..

how is chelsea's net spend this summer £130 million when they have spent close to £250 million and I'm not aware of them selling anyone

posted 4 weeks ago

Same with Leicester.

Sold Chilwell for £45m to £50m

Bought Castagne for £21m to £25m

Net spend - minus £25m or thereabouts

Only other signing is Under on loan.

Morata was sold this summer and so was Palasic and the spend is around 200m

Fees came out this summer though.

Rodrigo, Koch, Llorente all first teamers surely.

In terms of points totals I don't see how Thiago makes Liverpool better in that regard. What he does do is make them a much more rounded side and less reliant on the full backs for creativity. For me the best signing of the window and will allow them to compete on multiple fronts. Hope I'm wrong though.

When I say creativity I don't mean assists. His stats aren't that great but he's not that type of player. Will allow ball retention and progression through the middle.

sorry yeah, 3 first teamers..

that said, currently, Rodrigo 27 millions worth isn't even in Bielsa's first 11.. he only started vs Fulham because Pablo injured in the warm up

Bielsa likes to integrate them first though so wouldn't read much into that just yet, he's been bought to play.

Once he's got the system he will play.

still gotta wait on bale/thiago, well most of these signings really till we can properly judge.
Thiago coming on against an injury stricken chelsea side who were down to 10 men doesn't really give you an idea, and he gave away a pen.

Going to have to wait a few months before we judge

So - £50m for Mendy!!!

Where do some people get their information from!

The top 10 list of best signings this summer seems to be the one's who have captured the most media attention rather than "the best". Obviously I agree with some like Bale, Thiago, James Rodriguez, etc.

Emiliano Martinez could prove to be one heck of a signing for Villa in terms of their season for instance.

Chelsea have spent £250m but Liverpool have only spent about 30 quid of their signings’ full fees, it’s funny how the mind of a Liverpool fan works.

How often do Wolves get transfers wrong?
====
Quite regularly.

Cutrone, Afobe, Bonatini, Miranda, Mir are a few. They are run like a top Portuguese club, buy in bulk, hope enough turn out good.
----------------------------------------------------------------------

I think you can only really class Cutrone and Miranda as us getting it wrong. Bonatini was top goalscorer in our promotion season and cost us £5 million. I think that's a good deal.

Adobe we loaned to give us more options in the championship with an obligation to buy. Got promoted, signed him for £10 million and then sold him for £12 million to Stoke the same summer. I would class that as good business.

Mir we signed for a few million and has spent his whole time out on loan in Spain. He is now playing in La Liga and we stand to make a profit when he moves on. Has attracted interest from quite a few La Liga teams for when his 18 month loan ends.

Even Cutrone looked ok to be fair. He just got homesick and never settled.

Nelson Semedo has the potential to be a great signing, will suit us perfectly. He and Traore on the same side will give LBs kittens

Semedo’s crap going forward.

What are you going on about? The structures of our deals have been published so we know we’ve paid very little up front, so no idea what your point is?
