Transfer Stats

Postby Greeners » Sun Jul 23, 2017 2:14 pm

Hi
Using the BBC transfer pages and Chromes "find on this page" function I have just checked for free transfers and loans during June and July.

Free June 138 July 92 Total 320
Loan June 27 July 73 Total 100

I haven't counted the total transfers as the find function can't do that, but the thought of that number of Free transfers in less than 2 months does make one wonder how secure Football is as a career. Many of those players would have been wondering "what do I do next if nobody else wants me?".

The loans are presumably generally players from higher levels out on loan for experience in the hope that they will develop further.

I know development potential are not regarded by some posters as a good thing but hopefully they will prove to be good for FGR this season

About FGR

We’re a club that looks to the future, but our identity is forged from a rich 128-year history. Founded in 1889, we’re one of the oldest football clubs in the world.

In 2017, we were promoted to the Football League for the first time in our history – which means we can spread our sustainability message to an even bigger audience. FIFA recently described us as the greenest football club in the world. That’s quite an accolade, and it shows how we’ve been able to bring together football and environmental consciousness at the highest levels of the game.
