So Spence to link up with Jose at Roma 😂

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

Can we buy Peterboroughs scouting team instead?

HES 20 YEARS OLD.  I've said this so many times, the majority of players his age haven't even made a first team appearance yet and are still developing in the underage groups or in the lower divi

Has Fry been sold yet? 😉 It is mad seeing how different Fry is viewed compared to last season through some people's eyes. Similar to Spence this season, if Spence stays and has a quality sea

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.

    • Can i ask where the sudden love and appreciation for Mendez Gomez has come from on this board? I seen people mention him a fee times in last couple days especially when not being happy at the signing of Michale Smith. Despite fact ones a winger and other is a striker so am not even understanding the comparison  Did anyone even know who Mendez Gomes was until @diggerlad07 mentioned we scouted him? And now he suddenly this up and coming talent in everyones eyes that we must sign? Reminds me last summer when this board had a meltdown at the club for losing out to Brentford for Charlie Goode and we all know how well he did for Brentford.
    • Ah..  the eighties..  when haircuts were weird and so were footballers 🙂
    • Why would we do that when we could sign a donkey in the back end of an average career for a manager who's gone in a year?
    • I don't really equate that Schick goal as being a 'screamer' from distance, though. Same with the Beckham goal from the half-way line. If I'm remembering correctly, Charlie Adam and Xabi Alonso scored similar ones, those goals took skill for sure but I just wouldn't put them in the same 'long-range screamer' category of those where the keeper was actually in a position to try to save the shot. Like those where the player spots the keeper off their line and give it a go and the keeper just tips it over. The first thing that comes to mind to me is what the hell was he doing so far off his line to begin with. Might make a Herculean effort to sprint back and adjust his body to tip it over but was often their own fault for having to do that at all!
    • We paid nearly 3mil on akpom last summer and we were more hamstrung with wages then, so I'm not sure it can be ruled out
