    A brief assessment of our transfer window.

    Posted by MentalHatter on 1/2/2023, 10:13:54

    [=] Bree out and Drameh in:
    Time will tell but really encouraged by what I saw of Drameh last night. Could even be a net gain for this season however a longer term replacement might be more difficult to find come the summer.

    [-] Cornick+Jerome out, Taylor+Muskwe in:
    Cornick is a loss as we haven't replaced his pace/reliability off the bench. I don't expect Taylor to feature more than a couple cameos which leaves Muskwe as our Cornick/Jerome replacement. Hopefully he's developed a bit on his loan but I don't think we can spin this into a positive.

    [+] Sublime Nkamba in: we've lacked a defensive midfield option and Nkamba looks like the perfect signing. Won Aston Villa's player of the month award in the premier league and they paid 12m for him. He's 29 so should be ready to chuck in straight away. There's also a great clip of him wiping out a Man city player somewhere online.

    [?] Remaining deals: Not sure what the reasoning with the back up keeper from Barnsley and losing Isted was, likewise with our development player moving to Serie A.


    Overall I think we're in a stronger position to compete for the rest of the season. We had a lot of attacking options so losing 2 of these for an upgrade in the CDM role isn't too bad. Drameh looks the real deal too. I'm a bit concerned for next summer and finding long term replacements but trust the recruitment. COYH!

      Pretty much agree with above, its bit of a mixed bag.

      Our midfield with the addition of Nkamba looks spot on, hopefully having a strong defensive midfielder can help us defend the lead better at home and also release Clarke to play further up field where I think he is so much more effective.. So definitely a huge positive.



      Up front: at this moment in time we have basically swapped Cornick and Jerome for Muskwe, really struggling to see how that can be a positive.

      Right Back: Drameh a bright start and I suspect what with his pace and energy going forward he will be a better prospect than Bree in respect to getting forward he wasn't really put under to much pressure last night so cant really comment on the defensive aspect. We will miss Bree's versability and set pieces, overall Drameh is still bit of a unknown quality, Bree has been consistent over two seasons. Jury is out in this regard.

      GK until Shea is fit we now have 2 first team keepers instead of 3. So atm in time a negative but can improve depending on how Shea recovers.

      Overall
      Disappointing we didn't strengthen at Center-Back or bring in some Right-Back cover but that is how it goes sometimes.

      If Drameh performs as hoped then I think the "first 11" is pretty much as we were if not a little stronger in midfield, but as a overall squad I think we are weaker, we have less quality in depth, if we can avoid injuries to key players then this wont be such a problem but I can see us being just two big injuries away from really struggling.

        Bradley's return could be critical if we get injuries. Drameh looked very good yesterday.If Marvelous is fully recovered from his injury then he should be great. RE might be able to get more from Admiral Musqe. A few unknowns still ,and some players take a while to establish themselves.

          I'm sure that Fred's return to fitness played into the thinking regarding the forwards.

          RE has been talking positively about him in recent weeks, and last nights performance supported that. Probably more efefctive that HC would have been.
