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.

    • One big plus at least Scotland players don't have far to travel home, and up and down the pubs and bars in Scotland they'll be able to talk about the mighty nil nil with England for years to come.
    • Yes me too I was hoping for a last gasp equaliser, I'm hoping that the team are brilliant next game and prove me wrong, but I just feel the other teams have players who can produce that bit of individual brilliance needed, we look stifled and devoid of ideas to create chances. I had high hopes before the tournament started but the manager gives me no confidence, the most inform fullback we have in the squad is Chillwell good defender and fast going forward, the striker  with the best heading ability is Calvert Lewin outstanding season for Everton, neither have had a look in, narrow minded manager who has Plan A and nothing more this squad deserves much better.  
    • Has he whinged about Villa, Liverpool and West Ham like? I'm pretty sure he's spoken about West Ham at least and had nothing but positive things to say about his time there. In comparison with Karanka, he had plenty of good to say about Big Sam too, if I remember rightly. And in his situation, would you feel aggrieved or would you sit there after over a decade's worth of combined service to a club and think "At least I got that chance"? It's a two way street and it always has been with Downing. When he's been here, he's always worked hard and at least earned the chance to justify us keeping him around. He's never downed tools like Braithwaite did, for example. The season Braithwaite signed, Downing was pushed into the under-23s by Monk, they tried to force him out the club and sell to Birmingham and he worked his way back into the team. That same player got demonised as if he was a catalyst for Karanka's departure, got booed by his own fans and still came back trying to fight for the cause. It doesn't matter if I'd been in my job for 1 year or 20, if I made agreements with someone to extend a contract and they then backed out when it suited them and left me in the lurch, I'd be pretty bloody annoyed about it. If he wants to talk about that, he has the right and players who are hung out to dry by clubs don't have any reason to shirk talking about it. Especially with the situation here, where he didn't just have a promise made to him, he made a decision to waive a contractual agreement previously made in part so he would have his future worked out. We got what we wanted in the short term and long term and Downing was forced to leave. How can anyone possibly look at that level of unprofessional behaviour by the club and still think Downing's the problem is completely beyond me. It just seems to be a long term hatchet job continued on from a time when everyone blamed Downing for Karanka nearly leaving the first time and actually leaving eventually. Mixed in with the fact people thought Downing wasn't a good player which for some reason created value judgements of him as a person. People already don't like him and see him in one way so aren't open to the idea that he's in the right. The comment above, "don't get me started" on him, I have to wonder where that comes from when everything Downing says matches up to the absolute shittery we see at the top level of our club every year and especially since Karanka and Orta left.
    • dont get me started on Downing.
    • @wilsoncgp agree with everything you said. Just seems to me that he loves to whinge about how each club dealt with him “unprofessionally” upon leaving them. I have no doubt Boro did probably mess him about in Pulis final yesr but he needs to weigh that off woth how much good our club has done for him over the years, especially the owner who he also slagged off in that Schwarzer interview In every interview I read of his he seems to give of the vibe of there being a sense of self-entitlement with him. Just my opinion and others might see him differently
