The Big Transfer Thread 2020

Recommended Posts

If we keep Ramsbottom on, someone needs to be sacked.  If he is out of contract, that's a result.

Bob on the latest weekly update. Seems a really nice fella. Certainly goes with my well wishes. 

 

12 goals this season, whilst not playing/being injured/season cut short. 

 

A goal in ever 3 games is not a bad return for a Morton player who suffered a few injuries


TIME FOR CHANGE!

Decent return for a striker, by Morton standards anyway. Wish him all the best (subject to who the other club that made him the offer turns out to be).

Fair play to him. All the best Bob, hoped he would sign on again for this season as he’s really came on adding a bit more to his overall game. Hopefully we manage to keep as much of the squad together as possible without the obvious ones that aren’t quite up to it.

Frank Ross released by Aberdeen as well, would anyone have him back?

Aye, lots of ability but maybe not the attitude. A decent gamble of a manager can get the best out of him.

If we needed a winger I'd happily take him, but we'll be looking to keep Cadden & Nesbitt and we already have McGuffie signed up, as well as Salkeld & Orsi who can also play there even if they're primarily used at centre forward. Another winger is the last thing we should be spending wages on.

We'll not be hearing about new signings for a while since we don't even know when we'll be allowed back for pre-season training yet. Regardless, thinking how we could look for next season, on the basis of continuing with the same 4-3-3/4-5-1.

 

New (Rogers?)

 

Tumilty - New (Gunning?) - New - Strapp

 

Jacobs - Colville/Lyon - New

 

Nesbitt - New - Cadden

 

Wylie

New defensive cover x2

McAlister

Colville/Lyon

Blues

McGuffie

Orsi

Salkeld

Sutton

Easdale

 

Wylie & Easdale included since they're the youth players the club mentioned when giving an update on first team contracts, Ramsbottom, McLean, McGinty, Millar, Muirhead and Doolan not included because I wouldn't keep any of them.

 

If we got credible centre backs and a centre forward capable of double figures there's no reason that shouldn't be capable of a serious playoff challenge, but as with last season a below par goalkeeper and centre backs could undermine everything and a striker with those credentials isn't easy to find.

 

I'm assuming Hopkin would prefer two of the middle three to be more defensive minded which is why I've said only one of Colville & Lyon starting, with a new signing in there assuming McAlister can't start every game at 35. I suppose though if we have a more solid defence we could maybe get away with less protection from midfield and have both Lyon and Colville beside Jacobs, but I'd be surprised. There's also the option to be more positive with Nesbitt through the middle off a striker and McGuffie coming in.

 

We saw last season that Hopkin is willing to change formations readily so we might never see a set up like this anyway, but thought it was worth doing to see what signings we really need. The centre backs are going to be a big challenge.
