And? Just because Hull made a daft deal with us doesn't mean other clubs should do likewise. We were also the only club in for Robbo and it doesn't sound like that's the case this time. 

 

For the record, I'm not advocating we splurge 20m on this lad given he wouldn't be a regular. But Norwich's valuation isn't that unrealistic given his age, experience and talent. 

 

 

 

He's 22 and has been average all season.  £20million is well over the top.

The thing is, I'm not asking for the moon on a stick. It'd just nice to be able to know that if Robertson got injured, we weren't relying on a 35 year-old midfielder as back up, or if any of the front three needed a rest, we weren't having to call on a midfielder with 43 goals in an 11 season career to fill in.

 

Maybe it's passé these days, but I like the principle that you should have two players for each position, plus an extra goalkeeper.

At a rough guess I'd say the club will be working on backups.  It's not a secret that we're light in that department.  But that doesn't necessarily need the sums of money spunked on it that many seem to think it does.

Or you could argue he is young and english and the prem champs want him, which means he has value.

As a backup to a club with no money.  He won't move anywhere for that though I hope they stick to that value as we'll certainly won't sign him.

People always moan about values of players back and forth all the time.  The reality is the owning club decide whatever the value is to them.  It’s down to the buying club to match it or fuck off.

Why is it? It’s more than we signed Robertson for! 

That was 3 years ago and Robertson only had a year left on his contract.

 

I don't think Lewis is worth £20 million,but young British players nearly always cost way over the odds.

Oh don't get me wrong he aint worth 20 mil, but that doesn't mean Norwich have to just give him to us.

I'd rather they kept him.

I usually sit on the FF sidelines and just soak up all the information from more knowledgeable and experienced posters.

 

What I don't understand about this apparent lack of transfer funds or activity, is how anyone can be comfortable defending it with the season we've just had (English/Europe/World Champions) when the most basic tenet of professional sports is if you don't move forward, you're moving backward.

 

I kind of agree with Senor Stroganoff for the most part that the money should be there, and they should be investing in the team.

 

I'll go back to the cat thread now.

 

 

If you look at the agents fees for the last couple of years it's obvious they've been spending loadsamoney buying extra years of existing players.

 

Money isn't the only gating item though.  Klopp has said many times, he wants a small squad, so that even marginal players get a meaningful # of games.  It's what keeps everyone @ 100%+ he reckons.

Looks like Everton aren't signing any players then, apart from a 37 year old Ivanovic. Still waiting for Usmanov.

Usmanov is even older. They're taking this 'pace goals don't count' too far, in order to make a point.

The selling club sets the price not the buying club. 
 

It’s not that difficult.

Obviously, I was replying to someone saying that's a realistic fee for him.  Which it isn't he's an average player.

 

Norwich can set whatever fee they want.  He won't sell for that so its an unrealistic fee.

Have you seen the fees we’ve demanded for shit? 
 

I don’t like it but it’s the way it works.

We couldn't even get what we wanted for a League, Champs League wining full international centre back.  I'm not interested what happened before the Crisis most clubs are feeling the pinch with.

 

As I've said I hope Norwich stick to that valuation.

Bit of a difference between a 31 year old centre back, proven to be utter shite, never going to get any better and a young 22 year old English premium full back. 

 

If we're judging signings by the Robertson fee.  Get used to people pretending Milner can still do a job there.

Doesn't matter we still wanted a higher fee for him.  Like us Norwich won't get what they want (£20m) for Lewis.
