He hit 18 goals in League 1 and then 17 goals in League 1 the season after, getting Millwall promoted. At that point he dropped down to 10 in 17/18 and 12 in 18/19, which are perfectly acceptable figures, when you add his 11 assists across the two seasons as well. 

Talking solely league games for Stoke, he has scored only 7 in 42, but he's only played 2,239 minutes across those 42 games, which is an average of about 53 minutes a game. Again add in his 3 assists and he's contributing to a goal more than once every 3 games if my maths is correct (one ever 223.9 minutes), which is right around his Millwall average in the Championship. 

Christ sake, he went a spell of 15 games where he never cracked more than 34 minutes on the pitch, and he only cracked the 20 minute mark 3 times. The last 5 games where he's started and played 70+ minutes? 3 goals in 5 games.

 

Lets agree to disagree, you clearly have a much higher opinion of him than I do.

I can’t understand why this deal wouldn’t go through to be honest. Parent club have no use at all and want him moved on, player wants the move. Surely someone covering 20% of his wage and him playing is better than nothing at all

You just have to laugh 

I would but its more frightening than laughable in that he would be in the top wage earners at the Club. If he is still on Merseyside he may have just been used as a shield to get someone else in under the radar.

I don't have that high an opinion of him, you're just basing your opinion on a load of rubbish.

That's fair enough then, not much point in discussing him any further if its becoming emotive.

Warnock said this morning that Bolasie would be touch and go, and that if it was going to be done, it would be done late. It wasn't as though he was ever nailed on to be coming.

I must admit I thought we’d at least get one in but doesn’t even look like that will be happening now.

If the deal is agreed by 5.00pm there is until 7.00pm tonight for the Paperwork to be submitted so we may not hear anything until then.

How is Akpom getting on in Quarantine after travelling to Portugal for a champions league game he played in Greece?

 

 

Well done mate. You got me 👍🏻 Was told quarantine but was isolating waiting for a test result to come back before announcement. Wrong term from my mate.  Apologies though - I accept that it’s not on to get stuff wrong on football message board transfer rumour threads.

People need to stop buying into transfer deadline day so much, deadline day is nothing more than your gamble to win your money back on the last race of the day

You're mad if you think there are any guarantees

    • Merson, Gazza, Maradona and Best had their demons but were brilliant players. Jones is immature and has little natural talent to compensate for his indiscretions. Not much correlation between him and the others, IMO, and very little reason for us to spend money we don't appear to have on him.
    • He was banned from driving after a dangerous piece of driving around Glasgow which showed his decision making isn't particularly clever not to mention being irresponsible and selfish with scant regard to others. Thankfully he didn't kill anyone like others in the profession before him have. It's sad that the likes of Merson, Gazza, Maradona and Best etc. all had their demons but were still able to perform and function, the majority crash and burn, destroying their careers in the process.
    • Until we realise whatever another club is prepared to pay for them we can only estimate what we think their value is worth. McNair wasn't cheap and until this season he looked just about OK for the money we spent. We spent a million pounds Goalkeeper now out on loan replacing him with a nomad in footballing terms (Stoj is still on the books but not in the squad). Then there was the ridiculous fee paid for Saville (not his fault nor Britt's come to that). If you think that the squad isn't decreasing in value then you are entitled to your opinion but I only see a downwards trend. The sale of Bamford probably was the defining reality from which we haven't altered direction then we have Randolph's replacement who wasn't to the same monetary value (or ability). Without doubt we have some good prospects but that doesn't alter that we are now trying to buy cheap and sell high as oppose to years of buying high and selling low. I haven't a problem with following that business model, it's how we existed for decades before SG arrived, selling the likes of Souness, Mills, Johnson and later on Pallister etc. but to me the value trend of our squad is a diminishing one.
    • He was banned for 7 matches after attending a party, he's not even made the bench since. Before that he'd finally got back in to the side and scored. He's burned his bridges, but it's not just down to ability. Funny thing is, dozens of players have done the same thing in the top flight in England and gotten away with it without punishment.
    • I don't think Jones has the ability at this level so I wouldn't want to bring him back. Then the off field issues that led to him leaving Boro in the first place don't seem to have improved any at Rangers. We have had some of the best from the Old Firm that seriously struggled down here before in the Championship. That he can't even force his way into Gerrard's thinking tells me where his future level is.
