Mowbray is expecting to agree a fee with Boro to sign Pears. Should be around £300,000.

Warnock is trying to drum up the price though by encouraging more interested buyers.

The good news is it's a decent second keeper. 

The bad news is the fee. Surely there would be a decent back up who doesn't cost a fee. Especially when we really need a centre back and left back.

It seems a lot to pay for a probable bench warmer. I would have thought a decent second in line could be got for quite a bit less than that  Maybe Mowbray has heard Pears looks like a decent outfield player in training, he could slot him in at left back.

Or maybe he's sorting his mates son out with a decent contract for a few years....we have 3 keepers here who could do what he's going to do.  Stinks and another feather in the Mowbray nest.

Mowbray finally said the dreaded words of “Last week of transfer window clubs get desperate & Lots of deals are done on the last day especially “

 

He seems to aiming for that but never learns from his past experiences....

I agree with this. Nyambe can also kick inside if needed, and would have no qualms with sticking JRC in at Full Back, where he had his best preseason game vs Blackpool there.

JRC is as much of a FB as Bennett is. If you're playing him there in a competitive fixture you'd better have a raft of defensive injuries.

Aye but as has been mentioned before, you need to look at the deal for the duration of a contract. If Pears costs 300k and is on (for arguments sake) 8k per week over 3 years that is an outlay of just shy of 1.55mil. 

If we got an older Gk on a free but he was on 14k per week that would cost us just over 2.18 mil over 3 years. 

Just an example as a fee can sometimes be a distraction on here.

Eric Oelschlägel is another name which has cropped up this morning in the goalkeeper hunt. A player who was flagged by the European scouts whilst playing for Borussia Dortmund II. His contract expired this summer. Wages would be an issue I fear. Pears is still preferred.

Was on £2k at Dortmund according to FM20, and he only ever played one game for Dortmund first team. You'd hope wages wouldn't be an issue!

Absolutely get that it's just an example, and totally agree with the principle. But I sure hope we aren't paying anything like either of those wages for a backup keeper!

That's true I suppose and makes me feel a bit better about it. 

That said can a reserve keeper really command that much of a wage (relatively speaking)? Also it assumes length of contract in both cases is the same. You're right it is more complex than just the fee - a free transfer may have a signing on fee too for example. 

Maybe it is just a distraction. Perhaps it's who we are buying - he hasn't had huge amounts of football and had it been £300k for.someone else I'd be less fussed. Maybe it's our general malaise in the market that makes me negative. I would have thought though there were better deals out there though. 

Still, any port in a storm...
