The boy is a player , potentially a top player but £28 mil is ludicrous for a player who has not played any top flight games .


Reading that spurs didnt bid because the price went well above our valuation.

Same with callum wilson.

Yea both imo were over priced , Wilson was never a right fit for us .
Watkins would be but the fee is too much of a gamble so I understand not pursuing him.

That being said itís another window that feels a little underwhelming for us.

It is ludicrous but we have to look at players in lower divisions because we havent the money to nick the best players from the prems also rans anymore.

Those days are long gone and only the likes of the 2 mancs and liverpool can do that these days.

Even players from teams that have bombed out the prem are out of our range (look what bournemouth want ) for pretty well average joes.


Another problem may be the one in one out scenario and its use to raise funds when Levy is involved. Levy will try to get billions for a few guys barely worth millions anymore:

Aurier is a baller in my mind (skill wise), but hes a fn ostrich in his own....

Sissoko is useful at what? For me only in a purely defensive role and as he ain't a CB you have to be happy at the idea of a FB who can't do anything going forward... So worthless

Ndombele so much promise and F'all practical, he wants out.. Gotta let him go!

Sanchez who at 6.3 manages to miss read long balls and only jumps 5.3.

Possibly 10 game lamela as well and Danny R.

But how much "Realistically" could we get for these guys? and who would buy them from Levy? We can't even raise funds for big Troy.

We are fckd - Jose to walk by November! Poch to come back and realise still no Dembele replacement (as if ever) and walk by Jan. Arry to save us from relegation by April.

Hopefully Enic will leave but who would buy? Who wants to haggle with Levy about anything. He did a great Job a few years ago but had outstayed his welcome.

To be honest i am surprised sanchez is still with us ? didnt mourinho target him as a weak link in the europa cup final 2017 = man utd vs ajax ?

Yeah sissoko has his fans on here but what i see is a player that can defend and run up field with the ball only to give it back to the opposition and we are back defending again.
At least get the fking ball and pass it to one of our players ?

Aurier is a bencher now but not a bad option ! he will walk when his contract ends in 2 years time unless levy sells him before that happens.

Rose was a good left back and tells it like it is but is not very diplomatic! he,s on his way.

Lamela i dont mind on the bench because he gets stuck in when he comes on.

N,dombele is an enigma but clubs want him ! problem is they want him cheap.

While we are quoted £20 m for wilson and £28 m for watkins why should we do cut price deals for foreign clubs ?

With no money the emphasis is on the scouting system to find bargains ? thing is once we show interest in a player the price doubles.

The academy needs a wider outreach much in the vein of chelsea's .

We had 5 youngsters out on loan last term while chelsea had about 25.

Yeah they got a great little finisher there.

I was banging on about him most days during the summer.

We were in for him but brentford,s valuation was a bit too high for us.

You have to respect the price daniel put on the player but as i said at the time if he turns out to be a success he will be permanently out of our price range.

Early days but the goals have dried up a little for the player after that hat trick vs liverpool.

I wanted us to buy him but not at any price......! £28m possibly rising to £33m was too much for a player who was only going to be signed to fill in for kane.

TransferMarkt are not usually generous with their player valuations but they have him down at £27m.

I would have thought levy probably went to £22m & i would have thought thats about right .

I certainly would,nt have wanted spurs to pay £28m for him.

I for one don't care that we missed out on him. Don't get me wrong he's a good prospect but we've done magnificently in the transfer market, especially the forward line with Bale and Vinnie coming in giving us a strong first and second choice front three. Parrott and Skipp will be the future so nothing to worry about there.

No doubt he has scoring ability but as other have said we do have players in the area and if we had him then we would be overloaded in the area some would,nt get game time and want to leave. Good luck to the lad.

He would get the same game time as vinicius gets with us now but i think levy's valuation was correcr.

No regrets not buying him but interesting to see how he gets on.
