Lumley?

The one and only time I'll be itk- Lad fell out with Gardner and bowyer after they got him to sign a new deal with the promise of first team opportunity and they never followed through.  Giv

Thing that’s *** me off with this Tav talk is the disrespect from our fans on social media and forums, more so social media but I have seen comments today like ‘ I will drive him there’ in regards to

That would be too cheap for me. Minimum should be 12m or we should keep him

Rather not sell if we don’t have too. Guess it depends on who we replace him with. But not sure how we can quote clubs a minimum of 12m for him. Not that I’d complain like

Could be an interesting week. I'm guessing those with COVID won't be able to move clubs. Be good to get some players in an get the game on Saturday played.

I'm guessing we won't here much from the club until Friday in terms of who is for and who isn't.

On another note, a friend tells me Brighton are monitoring Isaiah Jones very closely with a view to a bid in the summer, they expect their competition to be Leeds

I think I must be living in an alternative universe 8 million, 15 million for Tavernier, have I missed something?

I 100% agree with your sentiment but it’s the way of the world. 15 seems extreme but I can certainly see 8. True value for me = 3. I don’t think he’s a premier league standard player but you have desperados with bottomless pockets ready to spunk it on average players. For once we are in the box seat on this.

I appreciate the passing of info and sharing however Payero has not been entirely accurate in the past so personally not taking this as concrete right now.

I’m in no doubt any bid for our big players would need to be seriously over our valuation to sell, especially in January when we’ve just started flying in-form.

We got 12m for Downing. Tav is as important to us now as he was then. Especially if we don’t need to sell, that should be our minimum price IMO

Nah, Downing was miles better, but of course football transfer fees have moved on.

Is he? What are his actual stats this season re goals and assists?

1 goal, 1 assist in 23 games. Again, just don’t know how people think he’s worth 15m.

I don’t go for stats or any of that stuff (that’s CT’s department) I work solely off the eye test and I’m telling you that if we remove Tav from our team we will be a lot worse off for it. The guy is everywhere on the pitch. A proper player for me.

Have no inside info on this but I think we will see Tav go this window and I think it will be for 5-6 million.(Not saying this is what I'd sell for but I think the club will)

    • I honestly believe a full season under Wilder in the LCM role would show everyone just how good he is. I think if you took him out of our midfield you'd see how bad and unbalanced it is. McGree and Crooks won't work because neither of them cover enough ground or do the defensive side of the game.  Howson I love but let's be honest he's not a traditional out and out CDM. He losses the ball too often in bad positions and his positioning for CDM can be quite poor. He brings commitment, energy and workrate though.  For me in midfield we need a LWB, CDM and an RCM. I would drop Crooks to the bench or move him on. I know that he's scored ten goals this season but I believe we can sign players that more suit Wilders system with energy, pressing and intensity. I would keep him for the bench but personally would look to replace him in the starting team. Tavernier was in the Top 10 for both Key Passes and Tackles Won. He was ranked 3rd for passes in the final third. He's expected goals and assists combined for this season was 15. I could see him getting 15-20 goal contributions in a full season under Wilder. He had 10 this season and has shown real signs of improvement. He does a lot more than what people realise for the team.  Tavernier was given corners because he was the only real left-footed option in the team. I do agree though that most of his deliveries were relatively poor considering he's our designated corner kick tacker they didn't look practiced.
    • Wouldn't call it interesting personally (i.e. not sure what there is to draw from it), think it just reinforces the club are happy they moved on from him. I can't remember the last time they did a season long goals montage so I could be wrong but it feels like this alone is a little out of the ordinary and perhaps only put together because Wilder is at the helm. I think the club is just continuing to want to push Wilder and positivity around him, that's how they approached the Season Card campaign too. It's not necessarily wanting to reflect on the season just gone as a whole but more to give an idea of what's to come.
    • I don't think corner taking ability is really something that pushes someone over that £10m threshold. He can be both one of our better corner takers, and still not be a particularly good corner taker, but that really feels like grasping at straws for something to still criticise him with. 
    • For what it’s worth with Tav, I genuinely think he would flourish as a left wing back, and simplified his game.  Tav travels well with the ball, is energetic and I can’t fault his work ethic at all. He always puts a shift in. But I just think he could use it so much better than he is currently doing from watching him this season. I still think he has some work to do in the final third, which ironically was where we struggled most to break teams down. I just don’t think he’s there yet and I don’t think he does a job which an additional player in midfielder couldn’t do (he’s replaceable).   For a player who takes corners, you’d expect better delivery on a more consistent basis for him to be worth 10m + which some are quoting on various platforms.    I realise that Tav is very polarised on the opinion poll. Like I say, I don’t hate him and think he’s ‘bad’, he’s just not consistent enough yet to be deemed as integral to how we play in midfield in my view  
    • Maybe if he was Slovenian and not from our academy he'd be the best thing since sliced bread 🤷
