Djed Spence is increasingly being linked with a move away to the PL. What would people want for him? I think £10m or above and its a good deal (with the standard sell on clause that are inserted these days)

Sell at that price, with a sell on clause.

He's been decent in a number of games going forwards, but I think he's largely looked better than he is because we've been so poor. Absolutely nothing special defensively.

No real ties to the area and he's already had an attitude issue under Woodgate.

We're only just avoiding relegation as it stands, and he's only been good in parts, so I don't think it's the same as the Traore situation where he was far and away our best player and could have been the difference in a promotion push.

depends on who we sell to, lower prem £10+ with a sell on clause upper prem as much up front as possible, incase he never makes it.

I cant believe it. Talking about selling one of our few young exciting prospects. Give over. We will have plenty of gaps in the squad to fill as it is.

We will snap anyone’s hands off for 10 million and will probably sell for much less. Good prospect but that’s a lot of money and we already have Dijksteel to take the position.

I honestly disagree. I don't think we want to sell Djed and it would take a silly bid for us to do so. 10m IMO is getting into silly bid territory, so I wouldn't be surprised, but I don't think we'll sell for "much less".

Well I hope you are right because I like to watch him.

I dont want him sold either and there are others to make some money on ie McNair/Saville/Fry who would be eaier to replace and less talented. However if the starting price was 10 million plus then i dont think it could be turned down. I dont think though the offers would be close to that anyway.

I think we need some experienced heads in. Hard to do but need to import a captain 

Definitely need a talker. Despite our plethora of centre mids we need something different in there. Our midfield combinations have been mediocre at best the past few seasons.

I'd happily take £10mil for Spence but like selling anyone under the age of 23 now I think we should be including a sell on fee percentage so we don't get stung like previous.

Seems way too early to consider cashing in on spence. 10 mil is a lot obviously but if he keeps yo the same standard through next season we should be able to get a huge fee for him.

He's good and has a lot of potential.. but is he so good a skint Champo team can turn down 10+ mil? No.. And I'd trust Warnock to bring in 3-4 good value players in return.

Unpopular opinion: Spence is severely overrated 😬

£10million?! What’s he genuinely done to warrant such a fee. Last few games he’s been completely anonymous. Can’t defend either, and looks to have lapses in concentration all the time.

I'd snap any clubs hands off if they offered us £10m for Spence.

As said, a sell on fee would be ideal too.

Looking at warnocks dealings last summer I wouldn't be so sure.

    • (Apologies to Erimus for referencing matches he's previously referred to - we haven't played on 7 August very often!) August 7th 1971 Boro 4 Hibernian 2  (Yes, Erimus - Hibs again!) Boro looked in fine fettle a week ahead of the 1971/72 season as they swept aside Hibernian more comfortably than the scoreline suggests. New signings Stuart Boam and Nobby Stiles appeared to be settling in well. Boam bought more presence to the defence, albeit looking hesitant at times, while Stiles used his experience to control the game from the middle of the park before coming off at half time. He said that he had done so partly to give someone else a run out and partly to have a look at the team from a trainer's perspective and that having done so he had a feeling that it wouldn't be too long before he was playing at Old Trafford again. As it turned out, he was right, but only because Boro drew Manchester United in the FA Cup later in the season. Against Hibs, Boro were 4-0 up by the interval as Hibs' young goalkeeper, who was only playing because their new first choice keeper's international clearance papers hadn't arrived, was regularly left stranded by his statuesque defence. John Hickton helped himself to a hat trick and Joe Laidlaw chipped in with another. Hickton got the first after just two minutes with a glancing header from a free kick from wide on the left. It was 2-0 after five minutes after a goalmouth mix up allowed Laidlaw to score off the post. Laidlaw turned provider after 20 minutes, crossing from the right for Hickton to head home, and Big John completed his hat trick on 35 minutes with another simple header. Boro relaxed in the second half, allowing Hibs to make the score more respectable with two quick headed goals of their own. The first came from Joe Baker after 52 minutes, with second half substitute Hazel adding the second on 58 minutes. All in all though, a good performance by Boro. They now had a midweek friendly with Benfica to look forward to (which famously brought back together Stiles and Eusebio) and then it was all set for the opening league fixture at Portsmouth. (This is Boro we're talking about - you know what happened next).   In the news - 2800 shipyard workers at Swan Hunter voted by just 45 votes to remain on strike after the latest pay offer fell 25p a week below their demands, two brothers were rescued off the North Sea coast after cutting the roof off their van and paddling out to sea on it (yes, really), the crew of Apollo 15 splashed down safely in the Pacific and three soldiers were shot during rioting in Belfast. Top of the charts - Get it On by T Rex.
    • No my friend you have voluteered and your name is on the list, I appreciated the efforts made last time out
