    Hi thanks for you input and kind words. Do you know for sure if everything is agreed and done and dusted? Is it now just subject to a satisfactory medical?

    Good point. Let's hope so. We probably need to 2 strikers now given Samuel's injury.

    If Tony signs Jack Rodwell I hope that he has done “due diligence “ by talking to Chris Coleman and others as to his current attitude, fitness and ability rather than relying on what he was like in his “glory” days.

    I don’t think that we will pay more than £5-6M for Brereton. The total with addons May be £8-9M but I suspect the addons will be promotion and senior England appearances based I.e. possible future costs not this season. It is still a bit of a gamble, if we signed him but he will give us NOW speed, skill and no little bullying of the defenders. He is out wide because he runs the channels and stretches the defenders with his speed and power. This would leave space for Dack and Armstrong to exploit. With the players we have he will only get better. Being able to bring on Graham late in a game is a hell of an option to have available. I also think that we will sign Chapman and then we would have a team that could frighten the living daylights out of most teams in this division.

    To say he is only 19 now he was used a lot last year. It is only because of the new experienced strikers they have now that are keeping him out of the starting line up.

    Seems sensible to me. 😀 If I suggested 9m then the message board would go mental saying why is the club paying so much for him. Let’s keep it based on the facts (albeit from Nixon) otherwise people will get carried away. 👍

    Where has the £7M come from I thought that it had risen from £5M to £6M? Either way Mowbray is not going to pay that much outright just like he didn’t pay £3M for Armstrong. We would be paying for potential, which is fair enough, so it will be a lowish figure with lots of add ons,subject to success criteria. This will to get to a final potential figure that Forrest would be happy to disclose to disgruntled supporters, just like we did with Newcastle. It won’t be a flat fee of 4,5,6 or7 million. Mowbray won’t want to take too much of a gamble. Payment based on delivered success like promotion or playing for the full England team is fair enough and would be reflected in his increased value.

    I asked the question to some Peterborough fans and they said that the majority appreciated what he did for the team ie goals and assists, but he dived a lot wouldn’t tackle and didn’t track back. Although I would love him to join us for his end product, I can’t see how that behaviour would go down well with our team.

    Thursday deadline.

    You and me too. That is going beyond tongue in cheek.

    Thursday deadline.

    Tony won’t want to risk buying him until he is convinced he is the same player that he was before the injury. That’s why I think that he is playing the waiting game. I would expect him to come in on Monday as a loan with a view to buy in January. Being in his last year of his contract Boro would most likely prefer a sale if they don’t want him anymore so it makes sense. We certainly need a player like him when we are chasing a game.
