In Tifo’s Sensible Transfer series’, we analyse teams, identify problem areas, and suggest solutions in the form of incoming transfers. We don’t follow gossip, rumours or conjecture, we don’t have inside information, and broadly speaking we don’t consider the brand value of players – merely their suitability to the team in question.
Some of our choices might be a touch niche, and some of them would be unlikely to ever happen – but the game isn’t to make predictions; it’s to make suggestions.
So, how do we come up with these suggestions? Well, in much the same way that football clubs do. By scouting.
