Help them? Leeds like to play a very fast paced style of football, Britt will slow it way down 👍🏼

I think we should be thinking about ourselves first, if we can get good money I say send him on his way.

Britt for Bamford swap deal, I'd snap your bloody hands off.

There is no way Bamford is worth that much. If we think Britt is worth 10 mil (mainly because we overpaid) then you'd be willing to pay that for Bamford? No way.

Bamford won’t leave Leeds but he’s a far better player than Britt, no doubt whatsoever.

He was worth 10m when we sold him and I don't think he's hurt his value all that much at Leeds.

Try asking Leeds fans. Iv'e seen plenty of times that they are not happy with him and he's not close to being worth 10 mil. And I agree. I don't think he is a 10 million pound striker. But neither is Britt. Some Championship clubs pay way over. I guess players are worth whatever a club is willing to pay, but I wouldn't pay above 6 mil. for Bamford.

I'd sooner have Bamford than Britt, even though I've really gone off him with his constant diving, cheating and all round lack of sportsmanship.

I can't see him ever coming back here though. Even just on this season, I'm sure he'd sooner be floundering and playing poorly at a club 2nd in the table than move back to a club in the bottom half of the table that sold him and he had a bit of a tiff with.

It's all moot anyway, they won't sell their only striker to bring in another striker.

Man Britt to Leeds I mean they're gambling with that Prem money in my opinion they're assuming they'll go up with Britt so in 6 months his fee and wages + FFP stuff will not matter as much but he's going to cost them there's no chance we sell cheap or Britt doesn't get a tidy promotion wage home clause from 2nd in the league Leeds.

I'd say 9-10 million I'd be happy with and to be honest take a punt on Shankhill he'd suit our pressing system to a tee. I've got no real sentiment to Britt or Randolph as harsh as it seems for the financial health of the club we do have to cash out on Britt between now and August we have too much tied up in him to let his contract run any further.

fans are often super critical of their own teams players; comes with the territory. Doesn't mean they're right. I know he's maybe had a bit of an inconsistent season, but he's still joint 10th in the scoring charts atm. I don't see how Leeds would ever let him go for less than they paid for him.

Who is a £10 million pound striker then?

Well there are some very obvious answers to that - Mitrovic, Watkins and Bowen are three right off the top of my head. Although they're probably all 15m+ (also I know Bowen isn't technically an out and out striker but I think 16 goals already qualifies you for the conversation)

I came to say this!

I would be over the moon. Bamford would suit this team and vice versa!

You'd have to be a top scorer in the league to be in that bracket, and that might not even be enough. I'd say Bamford was about a 10 mil. player when he broke through with us all those years ago, but it's gone downhill since. He's not a player a Prem team would look at anymore and that puts him further down regarding a fee.

I just don't get these ambiguous valuations picked out of the air, so they're £15mill plus but Bamford isn't £6m?

Not that it matters anyway, valuation and worth are subjective to the buyers and sellers I.e. the clubs so fan valuations are irrelevant.

    • Brilliant shout erimus & my mates favourite player Not long after signing for the Boro he was mistaken as one of the members of the Great train robbery team, released soon after though  I should have thought of him, he would have definetly gone in to my fact of the day  He also ran a pub back in Swansea 
    • You were missed after the Derby game, it's good to see you back. Two goals in two games now, the lad is on fire 💪
    • Assombalonga wasn't a mythical striker who scored goals for fun at this level though.  He scored 15 goals and then 14 goals before he joined us.  He then scored 15 goals and 14 goals for us.  We got exactly what we paid for, it's just that we paid far too much for him in the first place.  I'm not sure what it is about this that people don't get, unless they convinced themselves he was a 20+ striker somehow? Hugill is a beast of a striker.  The best season Hugill has had at this level was last season when he scored 13 goals.  He's only ever hit double figures twice at this level.  When they played in the same team, Hugill got 6 goals, Assombalonga got 14, albeit Assombalonga played more minutes, but he didn't play double the minutes.  Ah, but Hugill is the better all round player.  Hugill has 7 assists in his career at this level, Assombalonga has 6.  Hugill is a beast, Assombalonga is rubbish 🤷‍♂️ I think the bigger problem we have is the expectations that we place on some of these players.  The likes of Boyd and McDonald were players who had done ok at a relatively weak level of competition only.  Rhodes did well at this level but in a different set up to the one he joined when he came here, and we made no attempt to replicate that - that's one reason why an owner shouldn't decide to buy players. I'd say that we have three strikers who appear to be much of a muchness.  I doubt any of them would hit 20 a season at this level, they'd all top out at around 15 I reckon.  All you can do, as you mention, is attempt to play to their strengths as much as possible, or accept that if you don't then you will get inconsistent performances.  15 goals a season from a striker is fine, unless you spent £15m on that striker, in which case that's your own fault for not understanding what you are purchasing.
