Not many I've heard of tbh on that list , personally although I don't see nationality as an issue , the ability to communicate and organise is essential for a GK , so any keeper who doesn't speak Any English I would have to rule out , sure i recognise the Greek lad was he at Ajax or PSV one of the big Dutch clubs 

A bit better list this, GK's with ending contracts next summer. Contains three of our "targets".

Ajayi available for £2m. Leeds sniffing round now.

The thing I love about Ajayi is you could have Mulgrew standing on Lenihans shoulders and you still wouldn’t beat him in the air.

So, £12m on Gallagher and Brereton - is that right?

Don’t.

I believe this is what you call a rhetorical question...

Didn't think he was that old, could Adrian be an option for us?

Other GK's on free.

No idea what he did in real life but Oscar Ustari was a beast on football manager back in the day...

Happy with Gallagher. Lad was closely linked with the likes of Bristol, Stoke and Brentford. Good to get the better of the kinds of clubs we want to be competing with for top 6.

He was desperate to play for us.

I guess devils advocate it's probably more like £8m and if it ends up being 12 they'll have done ok for the club...

 

Doesn't look good on paper does it?

Tbf whether it ends up £8m or £12m it’s not big money for two strikers in the Champ!

It is for 2 strikers with 25 total Championship goals between them prior to that, neither of which get into our starting 11.

Probably not... as long as they do the business.

In all honestly I have no idea what the given value of a footballer at any level is these days. Fees get waved around, I shrug, sure; why wouldn't a player in the championship I've never heard of be worth £25m...

What about £12m for two young strikers with the potential to score boat loads of goals in the future?

It's big money to us.  Especially if they don't shine. I've said before I'm not Gallagher's biggest fan but he made more of an Immediate  impact than Brereton.

Well, we did need a back up for Graham so in a sense we have something we needed... I just don't think many of us would have wanted to pay £5m for that. Makes last season's Brereton signing even more confusing to me. He's now assumedly 3rd choice striker at the very least, and he's not likely to be first choice on the right side of midfield either. 

£12M for those 2---utterly absurd.

I am not convinced that either do have said potential, especially the dearer one, but we can only hope now.

Liverpool, Utd, City etc can put the boat out and buy potential, we aren't in that position. To be honest we haven't been in that position for 10 years now at least.

It's a lot of money for a club like ours to be spending on potential. Especially when other areas desperately need addressing.

Gallagher scored goals in a team managed by Coyle that contained Lowe, Akpan and Feeney in midfield with Dack providing service he'll score a hatful great signing

I think Gallagher will be the 20 goal a season guy

 

Brereton is still looking like a flop but he is so young that his potential is still high

 

Might be the vodka talking but if those two click we are looking fucking tasty

No matter what your opinion of Gallagher is I think you need to give him some credit for holding out for us when he had other options available. He could have got better wages and stayed nearer Southampton rather than uproot the length of the country. Any player that shows dedication to the club deserves some credit from me. Personally I quite like him, think he will do well for us. 

Loans to pick up from next week. 

Believe gk is closing 

Maybe he likes the regime at Rovers, It doesn't strike me as being too demanding.

Gallagher has scored 18 goals in his entire career, so nobody should be expecting 20 goals out of him. If he matches the 11 he managed in his first spell here then that will be good going in all honesty. Most of those goals were scored in Coyle's 'what's a defence?' system, not Mowbray's 'what's a defence?' system so it remains to be seen if he can reproduce that form. Particularly if he's playing right wing.

Vodka? More like jet fuel!

Do you really think TM will play those 2 upfront and Dack in the same team?
