Liverpool offered £4m, Chelski wanted £12m and apparently a tribunal came up with an undisclosed figure between the two.

It’s simple player ‘farming’. Big clubs hoard talented kids & talk them up as the next big thing which increases their perceived value leading to smaller clubs taking a gamble on them at inflated fees. If they then go on to develop into their full potential the bigger club can simply buy them back, albeit at an even bigger cost. The ratio of success means they generally end up better off due to the sheer number that don’t make it & have none of the development costs/hassle in the meantime.

or put in a sell on clause and make some cash.

Think some on here just love having a go at SP and RH. Seems they can't wait for something to go awry. Neither of the aforementioned lied, Solanke is injured and didn't suit our immediate needs.

Totally agree with all of this ..... and for £19m, I'd expect to be buying someone who is 100% fit now.
£19m for an unproven prem player who is injured ???
Surely there must be a better option.

 


We move in the direction of our thoughts.
Just think a little.

Maybe there was also a requirement to buy. Built into the loan agreement?

look at all the numbers being thrown around its madness.

we need to forget signing any striker at all and promote the best young attacking prospect we have to the 1st team matchday squad as of todays game.

otherwise whats the point in investing all this money into the academy!

I agree but does Roy? We’d still have Ward at right-back had it not been for injuries.

just read the below on tue indipendant “

On that same theme Crystal Palace had some fitness concerns in relation to Dominic Solanke and pulled out of signing the forward this week because Liverpool were against the idea of linking part of the loan fee to appearances.”

He wasn't 'unproven', of course, but Wasn't Mama injured when we signed him for God knows how many millions?

but unless soroth or wickham go out on loan or ayew goes back to swansea then were effectivly signing a 4rd backup striker for big ben.

weve gone all season without a scoring striker and we are doing ok, and not going to get relegated.

seeming as we dont have money to throw around on a whim like others,we may aswell gauge how ben & connor look with minutes under their belt and re-assess in the summer.

Not really the same though, I think we were right to walk away and look for a stricker who can play now!!

You're spot on with Mama but I'll still assess DS as unproven in the prem league as a striker.

he IS unproven! lol youth and international youth doesn't count towards proven whatsoever.

and comparing a purchase of a defender in close season when we had Dann and a couple of others as back up, buying an short term injured defender wasn't a big issue as needing a striker to bang in goals next weekend or we may end up relegated.

comparison just isn't there.
