Hi guys! PAOK fan here from Greece. You are getting a really hard worker in Akpom. He is a top lad and a good professional. When he first came, he was considered a bench player. It was the 2018-19 sea

Morsy nearly done

Williams fee nearly agreed. 1.75million rising to 2.5 (So 1.75 then 😂).

I would imagine that most of our players market values have increased now we have proper coaches, but very likely if anyone put in bids over £5m for anyone in squad, it would be seriously considered. After that it depends on whether player would rather be playing regularly or a "squad member". Most players know they have a span of about ten years to earn enough to set themselves up for when career ends and agents exploit this, so clubs like us either end up as investors, or yo-yos, depending on their ability to convince players that future prospects are better than present. Dijksteel will earn money for us, as will most of younger players, but some of the "established" players, we will probably lose out on in current financial situation. The serious money would come if he ever got near the Dutch national team and as far as I know, he never made their U23 side, so likely to find that difficult. I would find it difficult to put values on most of the players as it all boils down to the circumstances of the club wanting to buy and how far they are willing to push things. Fulham, WBA and Sheff U might want to splash out in New Year and Burnley might have new money, so Neil could think, sell one, buy three or he could say keep squad together and I will give you two more years if you want. Either way, we just have to hope whatever decisions taken are best for club in long term, every one has a price and we have to make sure that A) It is paid and B) we don't sell someone that can't be replaced without great difficulty.

I think Dijksteel is safe for the next 18 months at least. Its paddy im worried about. Will be coming into his last year, will likely want more money than he's currently on, been one of the stand out players in the division, Premier league experience and has caught the eye internationally too. Hes also a quality technical footballer which is rare in this division for a defender and though dijksteel is a decent baller himself, he's not quite in paddy's league in terms of passing and delivery.

Im not worried about summer for him, im worried about January.  Seems a perfect signing for a lower prem team.

Very true, I think we'll have a job on our hands to keep him here, really hope we manage it though. 

McNair has been our best player this season, in the best defence in England, and there are always players poached from the Championship in January.

I think we will do well to hang onto him, to be honest, I would like to have seen him being given captaincy rather than Britt as he is more of an influence on team. I've griped about him in past because he seemed to be "coasting" in some games, but the lad has stepped up to a higher level this season and maybe putting him behind Saville (relatively speaking) rather than alongside has made the difference as he is beginning to remind me a little of the way Souness played when he runs forward. Certainly if I was given a choice of keeping one or the other (Britt), on this season's form it's a no-brainer, so hopefully Neil arranges for one of the Wycombe lads to sideline him for four weeks to remove the temptation. Joking aside, it might take making him club top earner, but he could be difference between playoff challenge and midtable, so we need to make him an offer he can't refuse.

So how much would people be ‘happy’ to sell McNair for in January if he was to leave? 

Impossible to say. A lot depends on what's available out there and at what price. Selling an important player like McNair you'd arguably want enough to strengthen at least two positions ie. the vacant position when he leaves and maybe a winger or a target man.

Tbh there is probably only two players that I'd actively want to sell and that's Wing and Britt. Wing seems uneffective under Warnock and if we can somehow fetch a couple of millions on him they could be invested more wisely. Britt is simply on too much money for his output. I like Britt and I do think he works hard but I get the feeling a bigger target man would be more of use. I also think it will be difficult to get him to sign a new contract on much reduced terms and the last thing we want is to let a 15 million pound player leave for free after also spending 35-40k a week for 4 years. This coming january might be the best time to get a decent fee for him.

Who knows what covid will do for player values in the longer term but in more recent history you've had Matty Cash go for 15m and Webster went for something crazy like 22m. I'd watched those 2 players quite a few times and honestly I wouldn't swap them for any of Djiksteel, McNair or Fry. 

As poor as we are at buying players we tend to be pretty good at getting decent fees for players. I'd put all 3 of those mentioned at well over 10m. Hopefully Bola carrys on his upward projectory and we are looking at a exceptional back 4 at which to build on.

    • If Muniz does fall through we really do need to get some players in sharpish We've lost 30 goals from the players who've left, including 6 of our 8 top scorers (assuming Akpom leaves) and so far have brought in 15 goals with Ikpeazu, Crooks and Ameobi  This for a side that's already notoriously low scoring and lacking in creativity What worries me is the absence of links to wingers and attacking midfielders other than Lazaro and a few washed up has beens  11 days till Fulham...    
    • What will happen is; Muniz will go to Athletico We will bid for Lazaro We will agree a deal for Lazaro  Fulham will bid for lazaro We will buy Smith from Rotherham
    • Get begging Muniz to join us Twitter link
    • He will undoubtedly sign for Fulham and play for one of the most inoffensive clubs in English football in one of the least intimidating grounds in England.  He won't have a clue though. 
    • Yeah that is what I meant. Fulham never technically beat us to Bryan. They beat Villa to him. We were technically not in running for Bryan as far as player was concerned. His 3rd and final choice.
