Premier League Transfer Window Grade: Swansea City

3 Comments

Window Shopping: Coming into the January transfer window Swansea City needed, at the least, to add depth at striker for the injured Michu and soon-to-be overworked Wilfried Bony, a flexible central midfielder and a right-back to provide cover for an under-whelming duo of Angel Rangel and Dwight Tiendalli.

A series of low-profile moves addressed some, but not all, of these issues as strikers David N’Gog and Marvin Emnes, as well as left-back/center mid Raheem Hanley, right-back/center mid Adam King and center midfielder Jay Fulton, all made their way to the Liberty Stadium.

Players InDavid Ngog (Bolton, $1.3m), Jay Fulton (Falkirk, $33,000), Adam King (Hearts, Undisclosed), Raheem Hanley (Blackburn, Undisclosed), Marvin Emnes (Middlesbrough, Loan).

Players Out: Daniel Alfei (Portsmouth, Loan), Alan Tate (Aberdeen, Loan), Lee Lucas (Cheltenham, Loan), Rory Donnelly (Coventry, Loan)

Grade: D

Two points shy of the relegation zone with 14 league matches to play and the Europa League set to start up, Swansea City are in the muck and did little transfer-wise to give themselves hope of getting out of it. They desperately needed to land players who could contribute straight away and failed to do so.

N’Gog and perhaps Emnes are the only players of the lot who could potentially make an impact in the top flight. The 24-year old N’Gog has Premier League experience with Liverpool and Bolton and although he didn’t exactly light it up, there were matches where the 6’3″ Frenchman showed promise. The 25-year old Emnes scored 24 goals in 141 matches at Championship side Middlesborough, hardly numbers that will have the Jacks thinking the Dutchman can make an impact at the Liberty. Meanwhile Fulton, King and Hanley are all under the age of 20 and are projects for the future.

It was bargain basement shopping by Huw Jenkins. Over time, one or two of these players might pan out but the likelihood any will have a significant impact this spring is extremely low. Making things worse, Jenkins also went ahead and fired manager Michael Laudrup this week (appointing long-time defender Gary Monk as caretaker manager), so things at the South Wales club are, without a doubt, in shambles.

Watch Live: West Ham United vs. Swansea (Lineups and Discuss)

Leave a comment

With a win over Swansea at Upton Park today, West Ham could pull themselves out of the relegation zone (7:45 a.m. ET, watch live online on NBC Sports Live Extra).

The Irons have had an interesting time of it over the past couple months, with their normally stoic defense often falling to pieces, most notably in cup matches. But West Ham managed to hold Chelsea to a goalless draw midweek, and by bringing in five players on loan this January, it’s clear they mean to do whatever they can to stay in the Premier League.

That may include Sam Allardyce sticking to his traditional tactics against Swansea, particularly as it proved so fruitful midweek. The Swans are no Chelsea – especially without Michu – but they’ve still managed to make things tough for the opposition. The reverse fixture ended in a 0-0 draw, and Allardyce just might decide to play for that point once more.

West Ham may have made a splash in the transfer market, swooping in to snag quite a few out of favor players from Serie A, but none of the new signings make the Starting XI. Allardyce makes just two changes to the side that held Chelsea midweek, with Joey O’Brien and Mohamed Diamé both injured. Matt Jarvis and George McCartney step in to help prop up the Irons’ defense.

Swansea didn’t make as many waves in the transfer market – rather surprisingly, considering the injuries they’ve faced this season – but newcomer David Ngog makes the bench. Michael Laudrup has made three changes to the side that beat Fulham midweek, with Angel Rangel, Leon Britton and Pablo Hernández dropping to the bench, and Dwight Tiendalli, Jordi Amat and Nathan Dyer taking their place.

LINEUPS

West Ham United: Adrian, McCartney, Nolan, Tomkins, Jarvis, Carroll, Taylor, Noble, Collins, Demel, Downing

Subs: Jaaskelainen, Reid, Morrison, C.Cole, Johnson, Borriello, Nocerino

Swansea City: Tremmel, Tiendalli, Chico, Williams, Davies, Amat, de Guzman, Shelvey, Dyer, Routledge, Bony

Subs: Cornell, Rangel, Britton, Pozuelo, Lamah, Hernandez, Ngog

Premier League Transfer Needs: What all 20 teams need before the window shuts

2 Comments

With not long to go until the January transfer window slams shut, it’s time to assess what each Premier League team needs. Some need to splash the cash big time in their quest to make the top four, or stay up, while other may resist the urge to spend.

All this week at ProSoccerTalk, we’ve been breaking down the transfer needs of every PL team. 

Now we’ve put the transfer desires of all 20 teams in one place, as this post is brimming with the business each club should do.

Joe Prince-Wright and Mike Prindiville break the transfer needs down, as time is running out…

ARSENAL

Arsenal’s sole need is for a striker. Olivier Giroud has been a revelation but overuse is a worry and with winger-come-striker Theo Walcott out for the season and Nicholas Bendtner being, well, Nicholas Bendtner, Arsenal need to add a new piece up top. Tha assumes, of course, that the Gunners want to win a title (Champions League or Premier League).

Famously content with his players, there’s no guarantee Arsene Wenger will bring someone in. If he does un-latch the money clip, Wenger could do the business on the cheap – Wolfburg’s Diego (free) and Fulham’s Dimitar Berbatov (£2m) – or on the Mesut Ozil type level – Schalke’s Julian Draxler (£37m) and Atletico Madrid’s Diego Costa (£32m). Of course, attacking midfielders like Diego and Draxler would be striker-converts but would nevertheless be major boosts to Arsenal’s front line. MP

ASTON VILLA

Despite their vanilla form over the first half of the season Aston Villa are actually a squad with decent depth. Having already brought in striker Grant Holt and full-back Ryan Bertrand on loan, Villa now set their sites on a center midfielder with gusto. Karim El Ahmadi, Ashley Westwood and Fabian Delph form a strong core of center midfielders but none possess true creative, attacking talent.

Paul Lambert was rumored to be hot on the tails of Belgian midfielder Steven Defour, who the Villa manager dismissed talk of swooping for last week, and Norwich City playmaker Wes Hoolahan, who Lambert previously coached at Carrow Road. MP

CARDIFF CITY

Suddenly Cardiff find themselves in last place and in desperate need of some new blood. With only 17 goals through 22 matches, a striker would be nice and Ole Gunnar Solksjaer had hoped to land Mame Diouf from Hannover only for the Bundesliga club to refuse selling him. The new manager has already signed Heerenveen attacking midfielder Magnus Wolff Eikrem Molde and  versatile midfielder Matts Moeller Daehli.

Chelsea add Egyptian winger Mohammed Salah.

Midfield is another area the Bluebirds could use some spice and Solksjaer would be happy to take Ravel Morrison off West Ham’s hands but luring the former Manchester United player to Wales is proving difficult. Solksjaer has done plenty of business in the window, as Norwegian Jo Inge Berget, Stoke City’s Kenwyne Jones and Manchester United duo Wilfried Zaha and Fabio all signed in the final week of the window.

CHELSEA

With 20+ players on loan and having already bought attacking midfielder Bertrand Traoré (already sent on loan to Vitesse) and Benfica’s midfield destroyer Nemanja Matic (£22m), the Blues are one of the few Premier League clubs all set for a spring time run. But after agreeing to sell Juan Mata to Manchester United, Jose Mourinho couldn’t resist having another pop in the market, buying Egyptian winger Mohammed Salah from FC Basel for $17 million. MP

CRYSTAL PALACE

With the worst goals-per-game ratio in the Premier League, a striker is an obvious need but after missing out on former Everton striker Nikica Jelavic (to Hull City) and Carlton Cole (re-signed at West Ham) their options have dwindled. Stoke City striker Peter Crouch remains on Tony Pulis‘ radar as does Lyon striker Bafetimbi Gomis and Chelsea’s Demba Ba, who would arrive at Selhurst Park on loan.

Damien Delaney and Danny Gabbidon have formed a remarkably strong center-back partnership but defensive depth will be key if the Eagles are to avoid relegation. Look for Tony Pulis to bolster the back line with a move for a player with Premier League experience. Blackburn defender Scott Dann would certainly fit the bill. MP

EVERTON

One striker and another versatile defender who can be used as cover. The Toffees lost Jelavic and could lose John Heitinga and I’m assuming Martinez will be looking for replacements. The signing of Aiden McGeady is a good one, and another attacking options should be Everton’s priority if they’re going to make their Champions League dream a reality. A loan deal for Monaco striker Lacina Traore will help massively with that, as the top four beckons for a young and talented Toffees side. JPW

FULHAM

Most Fulham fans would argue a clean sweep is necessary, but the area that needs must help is defense. The likes of Philippe Senderos and Fernando Amorebieta have struggled this season and the Cottagers need to stop leaking a bucket load of goals. If they can do that they have offensive weapons that can hurt most teams. JPW

Traore has joined Everton on loan from Monaco. the giant forward could hold the key to a top four finish.

HULL CITY

The Tigers are pretty set after doing their business early in the window. I would’ve said they needed a top striker to help with their scoring problems, and Steve Bruce went out and bought two last week in Nikica Jelavic and Shane Long. Job done. JPW

LIVERPOOL

I truly believe Liverpool need one more striker to really turn them into a top four contender. But I don’t think they will land one. Defensive reinforcements would be nice, as the likes of Martin Skrtel and Kolo Toure have been liabilities as times this season. In midfield they are set, although a tricky winger may tempt Rodgers as summer signings Victor Moses and Iago Aspas haven’t shone thus far.

The Reds look to have missed out on Salah, as Chelsea nipped in with a last-minute bid for the Egyptian winger. JPW

MANCHESTER CITY

City are pretty set in every position. But if they wanted to strengthen in one position, it may be left back. Gael Clichy and Aleksandar Kolarov have both been sharing the role for most of the season but neither have looked that great. Going forward they both add a lot, but defensively they leave plenty to be desire. Maybe City will splash the cash to make sure their squad is absolutely stacked heading into the final stretch. JPW

Mata is finalizing his move to Untied, will he be the catalyst for a Red Devils revival?

MANCHESTER UNITED

Where do we start with the Red Devils? Arguably only four players have done enough to warrant not being replaced this season: David de Gea, Adnan Januzaj, Wayne Rooney and Robin van Persie. The real problem area is midfield as United tried desperately to bring in a whole host of players in the summer window and failed.

A move for Juan Mata for a club record fee of around $61 million sent out a huge message to everyone that the club backs David Moyes, as the Spanish midfielder will bring a whole new dimension to United’s midfield. A top four spot is dependent on United splashing the cash, and they’ve done that by bringing in Mata. Will more arrive in January? We will have to wait and see, but Moyes’ rebuild has finally got moving. JPW

NEWCASTLE UNITED

No massive needs for Newcastle, as they are banging goals in from all over the pitch and look pretty solid at the back. Keeping hold of the likes of Yohan Cabaye and Tim Krul will be crucial in this window, but adding another striker to compliment Loic Remy would be worthwhile. Dutchman Luuk De Jong is close to a loan move, as Alan Pardew’s side have an outside chance of making the top four.

However it does look as though Cabaye is on his way to Paris Saint-Germain before the window shuts, as the Magpies have had big money bids come in for their French international midfielder and a fee has reportedly been agreed. JPW

NORWICH CITY

The Canaries still need more firepower, after summer signings Gary Hooper, Ricky van Wolfswinkel and Johan Elmander haven’t delivered more goals. Apart from that Norwich are solid across midfield and in defense, and have impressive strength in-depth. But if Chris Hughton’s men want to stave off relegation, a new striker is a must. JPW

SOUTHAMPTON

Much like Newcastle, Southampton only really need to add one player but focus on keeping their star performers at the club. The likes of Luke Shaw, Jay Rodriguez, Rickie Lambert and Adam Lallana have all been linked with moves away but Mauricio Pochettino is adamant nobody will leave. A few injuries could see Saints dipping into the loan market, Pochettino knows La Liga well so don’t be surprised if he heads in that direction for a playmaker/defender. JPW

Will Yohan Cabaye leave Newcastle in January?

STOKE CITY

The Potters must shed a few off the wage bill before they can bring players in, and Mark Hughes must do that quickly if he’s going to make his squad stronger. Notoriously Stoke always do plenty of business on deadline day, and it will need to be another big window if they aren’t going to get dragged into the relegation battle. One quality new player up front, in midfield and in defense is needed. Stoke did buy USMNT forward Juan Agudelo after work permit issues, but they’ve immediately loaned him out to FC Utrecht in Holland. While Stephen Ireland has sealed a permanent move to the Britannia and striker John Guidetti has arrived on loan from Man City.

Peter Odemwingie arriving from Cardiff in exchange for Kenwyne Jones seems like a decent deal, but the Potters need plenty more business like that in the final few days. JPW

SUNDERLAND

Sunderland needed to strengthen a leaky defense and got down to business early in January, acquiring full-back Marcos Alonso (from Fiorentina) and center-back Santiago Vergini (from Estudiantes). As loanees both players are mere stop-gaps, meaning the Black Cats will reassess the back line come this summer. Argentine goalkeeper Oscar Ustari joined on loaned from Spanish side Almeria as another short-term replacement. On the offensive side of the ball Gus Poyet’s side has quality in Steven Fletcher and a talented group of wingers (Fabio Borini, Emanuel Giaccherini, Seb Larsson, Adam Johnson) but could use a more dependable holding midfielder to provide an alternative to Lee Cattermole.

Ignacio Scocco is close to sealing a switch, as the Black Cats look to add more firepower with the Argentine striker coming in to help with the relegation scrap. MP

SWANSEA CITY

The Swans are in a free-fall and need to add depth if they plan on continuing their Europa League run while avoiding relegation. Wilfried Bony has improved of late but with Michu‘s injury, the Swans should look to bring in another option up top. On the wings, Pablo Hernandez and Nathan Dyer‘s health issues could demand a new player be brought in while the center of the park has been solid with the likes of Jonjo Shelvey, Jonathan De Guzman and Jose Canas. Michael Laudrup can’t afford to lose anyone from his defense, especially Ashley Williams, and could use some added strength at right-back where Angel Rangel and Dwight Tiendalli have been average at best.

Laudrup has signed a new striker, as Bolton forward David Ngog has joined on loan for the rest of the season. I’m sure that’s not the type of signing Swans fans were hoping for. While Tom Ince has held talks with the Swans, as the tricky England U-21 winger is set to move on from Blackpool during the window. If he signs for Swansea, it will be a massive boost to the relegation hopes. MP

Will Spurs add another striker after Defoe moved to TFC?

TOTTENHAM

Spurs arguably have more depth than any club in the Premier League so purchases are unlikely although we may see Tim Sherwood bring in a young striker to replace the loss of Jermain Defoe (to Toronto FC) and add cover to Emmanuel Adebayor and Roberto SoldadoMP

WEST HAM UNITED

If West Ham are to avoid relegation they must purchase a new striker. Andy Carroll recently returned from injury but the Hammers must provide cover in case the injury-prone Geordie goes down again. In the midfield, holding on to Ravel Morrison is an absolute must while bringing in another creative force to operate behind the strikers could be a good move considering Kevin Nolan‘s underwhelming season and Mo Diame’s new knee injury. At the back, Roger Johnson was brought in earlier this month but has struggled meaning Sam Allardyce would do well to bring in a center-back of proven quality.

The Hammers have added two notable players from Serie A, as Roma striker Marco Borriello and AC Milan midfielder Antonio Nocerino both joined the Upton Park side on loan. MP

WEST BROMWICH ALBION

The Albion made the unpopular decision to sell Shane Long but have cover up top in Saido Berahino, Nicholas Anelka and Victor Anichebe. Pepe Mel’s side could use some strengthening at right-back where Billy Jones has been average at best but money issues will constrict their ability to buy. MP

With just over a week left in the January transfer window, it’s time to assess what each Premier League team needs. Some need to splash the cash big time in their quest to make the top four, or stay up, while other may resist the urge to spend.
