Propose a Tav replacement

I don’t think we will go for a like for like replacement. Maybe get more of a ball player who retains possession more, but probably won’t have the same energy as Tav. Not sure whom, but Wilder and Scott will no doubt have some plans for this happening.

Not sure what I've seen he is ready for prem yet, great feed, moves really well with the ball, powerful consistent striker of the ball, but he looks a bit heavy to me, needs to work on his fitness and the best way is to play week in week out


Reminds me of a young Ross Barkley


Would be a great move for us. I remember Barkley playing against us for Sheff Wed, and he was the best player on the pitch at 19

My first choice would probably be Callum Styles from Barnsley (Maybe put a £2m bid in?).
22 years old, Hungarian international, used to be a LM but played in the CM role last season - Can also play RM and possibly CDM.

I like O'Hare, Willock, Bowler, etc... but I think Callum Styles is the closest "like for like" replacement in terms of attributes.

Total wildcard, and he's definitely not as good as Tavernier... But I think we should throw £1 million in for Paddy Lane from Fleetwood too.
He's 21, played for Northern Ireland U21s with Boyd-Munce, and he was league 1 young player of the year last season.
He had 13 goal contributions in 37 games for a team which nearly got relegated. He can also play CDM.

We could also use the money we've got to build a younger squad for future seasons...
CB - Ronnie Edwards from Peterborough (19)
RWB - Alex Scott from Bristol City (18)
LB/CB - Shadrach Ogie from Leyton Orient (20)
CM/CDM - Jordan James from Birmingham (18)
CM/CAM - Finn Azaz from Plymouth (21)

Loads of championships clubs do it every season, and have done it this summer.
Huddersfield just signed Jack Rudoni from Wimbledon for 800k.

Plenty of really good suggestions on this thread.
I really don’t think we’ll miss Tav as much as people think. Hard work and stamina are far easier to replace than goals and assists, and let’s be honest, Tav’s effort and engine were his best attributes.

I would have suggested Joe Rothwell but just realised he's (also) gone to Bournemouth!

Will Onomah get much game time at Fulham this season?

Great shout with Onomah - the only issue is he'd probably cost most of what we sell tav for.

I think that Boyd-Munce was one of those type of signings, get them into the U23s if they flourish they get on the first team bench and get to push for a start. Wilder has mentioned we need more from our U23 squad, we need to look at that model.

Josh Bowler - Blackpool, good age, good pace, good energy, and plenty of quality, out of contract in the summer so should be a reasonable price, got a decent scoring record and can also provide left wing back cover at a push, not played a lot of football so still has improvement in him and I think he'll suit Wilderball.
It will confuse commentators if Bola and Bowler form the left side.

There's no risk - I don't know why we don't do it more... Boyd-Munce is probably on £500 a week.

Players like Luke Jephcott from Plymouth. Striker who's scored 12 goals last season and 18 goals the season before.... Yeah, he's from League 2, but what's the worse that can happen... We buy him for 200k and sell him for 150k because he wasn't good enough?
