There's always a sucker somewhere, ready to part with their money.

Football Insider claiming Bolasie is wanting 50k a week and is pricing himself out of staying.
 

He must be fast asleep dreaming if he thinks he’s getting anywhere near that. He was on 70 at his peak and has since dropped dramatically, had career threatening injuries and had 3 failed loan spells. I wouldn’t go any higher than 20.

That does seem a touch high 🙂

Might not be true though of course.

I don't particularly blame the lad for still wanting a high salary as such. It's very unlikely he'll get that whilst staying in this country and especially in this division but that is still a £20k a week drop from what he is currently on, right? It represents a significant shift down.

Even if that is his current asking price though, that's probably highballing it and will represent a point at which anyone who wants him will have to negotiate down.

Having said that, if he's highballing at £50k, I don't think any salary he is willing to accept will ultimately represent good business for the club. I'd like him to stay but like you say, any higher than £20k I think is risky for us. The only way I can see us offering anything significantly more than that is if it's a 1-year deal, maybe with an option on our end to extend.

Yeah he's been good for us since signing but nowhere near that good. Can't see a prem club wanting him, only really had any kind of form with us over the past 2-3 years. Think he needs to decide whether playing or earning is more important for him. Given his age I wouldn't be surprised or disappointed if he chose one last big payday but I was hoping he could be part of the squad next season.

I don’t believe this. He wouldn’t even get that if he went to Turkey and he absolutely knows we can’t pay it. It makes no sense as a story.

Unpopular opinion, I actually don’t think he’s been that good. He’s looked hungry in some games. But in others he’s been absent. I can’t work out if that’s down to our tactics or not though. 
 

I wouldn’t want us to pay more than 15k for him but think we would stretch to 20 on a short term deal. I doubt he would want to stay here though on that money, but stranger things have happened.

Had an update on the GK that I mentioned a week ago - the lad has three offers on the table, us and two other clubs that are currently involved in promotion/relegation battles. We were hoping to have him up on Monday for a medical, wanting it locked away quickly but not sure it’s going to happen that soon.

Probably don’t want to say much beyond what I said a week ago - I’m not being given the info to share. English, mid-20’s. He’s got good pedigree, came through a Premier League Academy before moving on to get game time. He knows Warnock. I’ll reach out and see if I can give a bit more.

    • Indeed and boy the Americans love a franchise, perhaps this one will move Derby back to the States!
    • What! that time already? Talk about wishing your life away!🤪
    • For me, we need to appoint a manager with some sort of track record that has a style and philosophy that fits the brief set by Gibson and given to Scott. A newbie would be a huge risk as there is no evidence to back up management style, newbies could be anything. Yes, they can work out, successful managers have to start somewhere, but more fail than make it. A newbie with pulling power like Bryan Robson would attract players on reputation, but without tactical nous and man management skills it can unravel quickly.  Scott will likely be the big influencer for Gibson. His vision needs to fit into recruitment strategy, but also retention,  taking account of the squad we currently have. As said above, while the jigsaw analogy is a fair one, getting the balance right is no easy task. Too experienced a coach and they can be set in their ways, tried and trusted styles that have been successful only work if the players at the club can adapt quickly. I would like to see someone who is early in their management career, with a decent grounding as a manager at a lower level, improved the team or teams he has been at, has drive and ambition to get to the top, but not someone who sees Boro as a mere stepping stone, someone who wants to hang around and be a part of any future success. Someone who has good man management skills and a vision that mirrors that of the clubs forward strategy. As for names, I really don’t have any, I will leave that to Scott and Gibson and place my trust that they get things right between them at the first time of asking.   
    • Or as someone who allegedly loved his particularly young fresh Oats so much he was actually named after them once said "I am just going outside and may be some time." 
    • Maybe what's happened is the Ameobi Experiment.  We signed him and then tried to make him invisible to opposition players.  Something went wrong with the experiment however, and whilst to anyone looking on we did indeed make him disappear, he is not actually invisible, but has in fact travelled through time to the year 1984.  Or, he has a dicky knee.  Could be either 🤷‍♂️
