Thread: Get Wilson.

  1. #1

    Get Wilson.

    Yes I know they’re tightening the belt but with the strange collection of very average players we’ve been signing we need at least one more good player to back up our remaining handful of quality players.
    £10M is a lot of money but it’d make the difference between some possibly of promotion and a retreat into heroic mediocrity.

    They’ve saved a lot and they probably could afford this one extravagance because it’d make financial sense in the medium to long term.

    we have 35 million less to play with than we did last season, we won't be spending 10 million on anyone.

    Wilson will probably go to Brentford

    How much have you seen of our four new players then?

    Re: Get Wilson.

    I'd probably agree if he was someone to really increase the chances of promotion but I'm not sure he is that player, as good as he no doubt is at this level.

    Re: Get Wilson.

    I don't think we'll be challenging for promotion for a few years

    It's going to be heroic mediocrity, I'm afraid. Anything more will be a huge bonus next season

    Transfer embargo for a start.

    Re: Get Wilson.

    Wilson's wages would be out of reach let alone the £10m transfer fee. Liverpool contributed last season probably. And he's not that good anyway.

    Re: Get Wilson.

    I don't think we should be spending 10m on anyone. Will any championship clubs be spending big?

    There is no transfer embargo. Check the EFL embargo site. It was all a damp squib.

    How much do you need to see.
    Collins is a decent player at this level but the rest have no pedigree. Of course , one of them could be the next Ronaldo since everyone has got to start somewhere, but no reason to expect much from any of them .

    What's your sauce (sic) for your financial insight

    Re: Get Wilson.

    If we're going to spend that much (hypothetically) then I'd want to spend it on a better player than Wilson

    Darren Carter is a free agent now. Should we get Carter?

    Wilson is a quality player at this level, easily worth that much, which is why they won't be short of offers.

    with him I'd say we have a chance of getting into the playoffs, without him very little chance.
    that differential isn't worth 10m we don't have though.

    I'd love to see him back here, but we shouldn't be spending that kind of money

    He's only 37. Three year deal on the cards.
