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?

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.

    • Interesting.   I've been having a little think about who we could potentially target, outside the obvious and those we've already been linked with in the past. Buying from the Premier League appears highly unlikely for me, what with the astronomical fees that Premier League clubs will want in the Winter window.   I've also ruled out clubs playing in the Champions League, as they'll be less inclined to sell during the season, especially if they progress beyond the group stages.   Here are who I think could be intriguing potential targets that I like the look of:   Nikola Milenkovic at Fiorentina Kristoffer Ajer up at Celtic. I'd also consider a flyer on Connor Goldson at Rangers as he ticks the homegrown box, without the ridiculous price hike.   Milenkovic would the be most expensive of those 3, but with Fiorentina not in European competition this season, and in all likelihood they won't be again next season, the young Serb ticks a lot of boxes for me. Contracted to Florence club until the end of the 2022 season. I reckon he could be had in the region of £25-£30 million.   23 years old, but with good experience at International level having won 23 caps for Serbia already. He's a fraction taller than Virgil, so would help cover the loss of Virgil's aerial ability. He's also very comfortable playing at right back too, as he's played a number of games there for Fiorentina, so offers a touch of versatility if we ever did consider changing to a back 3, or if we ran into injury issues in that position.   Ajer is a player I've seen a fair bit of over the past couple of seasons, and one who to me needs a move to a better league to kick on. Again, he has some versatility about him, as he's very comfortable playing further up the park in a defensive midfield role.   Very composed on the ball, and another 6'5" lad who is more than decent in the air. Just 22 years old and is contracted to Celtic until the end of the 2022 season. Quite surprised that he didn't move on in the Summer, as there were plenty of rumours floating around that he wanted to move on from Celtic Park. A fee of £12-£15 million would be more than enough to secure his signature.   As for the flyer in Connor Goldson, I considered homegrown players outside the Premier League, and barring a few young potentials, Goldson ticks a number of boxes.   He's 27, so is more experienced than those above in terms of age, and has played in all tiers of the Professional Leagues in England. He's also a leader, having captained Rangers on a number of occasions.    A touch smaller than Virgil, he's still very good in the air, though he lacks the ball playing ability in comparison with the others. Again, he's contract until the end of the 2022 season, so I reckon he could be snapped up for £10 million at the most. A big plus for Goldson is his homegrown status, and I reckon he'd jump at a move down South to give any aspirations he has of playing International football that little more of a push.   I've gone off to Squawka to grab their comparison matrix to compare the domestic seasons of the 3 above, as well as Caleta-Car that Ne Moe mentioned.   https://www.squawka.com/en/comparison-matrix/?compare=hU63Iyjx1EX1vtv0ZtyK7  
    • It's like Rocky blaming Spider Rico for damaging his brain.   If his injury was that that bad he played 85 minutes and almost set up a goal with his cross. Didn't look like a player who was injured or struggling after a nasty challenge. 
    • A happy little celebration dance, because he's got 100% confidence in Fabinho preventing the goal.
    • This guy makes a pretty compelling case to take a look at Duje Caleta-Car.   Marseilles already agreed to sell him for 20m to West Ham in the summer, he rejected the move, but at least the price is reasonable. Only 24, but best of all, he's a great passer, which is something we're sure to miss with Virgil out. Also wins a good percentage of his duels, a bit of a poor man's Virgil in his style if you'll forgive the comparison.   One to keep an eye out for, maybe.
