    January Transfer Window Talk

    The window starts on Thursday 17th May

    Get ready for the action ..... on August 8th!!



    From Sky
    The Premier League will this week confirm that the summer transfer window will open on the earlier date of Thursday May 17 to fall into line with FIFA rules.

    The regulations of the world's governing body state that every league must have at least one transfer window in a calendar year that lasts for 12 weeks.

    It was agreed earlier this season that the window would close on August 9, instead of the usual August 31, to allow clubs to avoid disruption to their squads once the league season has kicked off on August 11.

    Not sure we will have to wait until August 8th OC.

    We now have FIVE players right in our sights.

    Terms still to be finalised and fees agreed, but I expect FOUR of them on board within the next month!

    This comes from a really good "source" who is not often way off the mark.

    Sadly, two more senior players are leaving, which means we need at least another two, to add to the four potential inbounds.

    I'll bet SD is not enjoying his "rest"?

    That’s encouraging - who is leaving Bardsley, Walters ..

    You have already mentioned it OC.

    Two previous stalwarts, Heaton and Mee.

    If Mee goes we need two top class CBs in, that could be problematic, we couldn't even bring one in last summer.

    Transfermarkt values Tom at £4m and Ben at £8m so I guess we should expect £15-£20m for Tom with 2 years left and £25-35m for Ben with one year.
    West Ham stories value Tom at £10m so they are going to need to up that a lot.

    Despite the injury and lack of game time since, Tom's surely still worth way more than £10M?

    "That’s encouraging - who is leaving Bardsley, Walters" I liked that one too!

    "If Mee goes we need two top class CBs in...we couldn't even bring one in last summer." How hard did we actually try? With the benefit of hindsight, I'd suggest that SD had far more confidence in Tarks last May than the rest of us? In addition, in the summer of 2017 'class' players and their Agents too probably saw Burnley as a major relegation risk, I expect Turf Moor will look a much more attractive destination to them this summer.

    I don't know about the rest of us but I had every confidence in Tarko last summer, even predicting he'd be playing for England. There was no doubt in my mind that he was Sean's choice to replace Keane, but I fully expected a replacement to be signed for the bench. It was taking an enormous risk to go with just 3 CBs, as Sean has more or less admitted, I doubt he'll want to risk it again, especially with
    the Europa League to cope with as well.

    I was blowing Tarkas trumpet on here long before last season,anyone who knows about football could see what a good player he is..

    He still makes me feel nervous. Bobby Moore he ain't!

    Real Madrid trying to pinch Courtois from Chelsea could create more competition for Tom or Nick!

    Don't think Tom or BM will be leaving unless we get a silly offer for either. 10m won't do it for Tom it will take double that at least and certainly won't be to West Ham I would be more worried if it was Liverpool sniffing around Tom.

    Bobby isn’t doing any defending these days so most players would be pleased not to be him.

    Simply the best footballer I ever saw was Bobby Moore.

    He came to the Turf and had Andy Lochhead and Willie Irvine in his pocket and that was not easy to do!

    He's not one of mine BT, and his social skills were non existent also if you go off alf's dealings with him.
