Facts, I wouldn't post it if I'd just made it up.
We would be off our tits to turn down anything north of £15,000,000. If he stays we get next to nothing for him next year. Huge gamble.
For where we are as a club we need to take this money, use it to sign 3 decent players that will help us get into the play off's and hope that Brentford might agree to loan him back for a year as I think most would agree he isn't quite ready in the way Bowen was. If that means only getting £10mil plus add on's instead of £15/20mil then it would still be a decent deal for me. Trying to keep him here for one year until he can walk for peanuts is madness, pinning all our hopes on a promotion to make him want to sign a new deal.
I don’t think anyone believes he’s not going, it’s just the club trying to get as much as they can for him. If he goes to Brentford, as seems likely, they won’t be loaning him back. They’re not a Spurs type who can shell out £10+ million & then loan him back or to some other team for a year.
I also doubt anyone really believes we’ll be in touching distance of the play offs, let alone any sort of promotion this coming season, so KLP will be off, hopefully sooner rather than later, so we can see where we’re at by the start of the season!
Looks like Everton have sold Richarlison for a £50m fee. Interesting to see if they put an offer in for KLP now, although not sure how strong their interest was.
Foook off !!!!
I will keep your name sir if that’s ok, I’m on with one at the moment, fiction mind but based on hull.
Off topic, & I don’t usually get enthused by shirts, but York’s effort, for this coming season, looks very nice.
Brennan Johnson has agreed a new long-term deal with Forest.
I agree, it really looks good.
Getting our own tv channel?
Acun Ilıcalı will turn the TV8.5 channel into a sports channel. He made deals with important names.

Too right I would. £12m going to £15m all day long.
We've got Allahyar for around £2m. Haji Wright will move for £2m. Even Muleka who scored 12 in 14 is only going to cost about £2.5m, although it looks like he's off to Burnley.
If you want an older options, El Kaabi and Lobzhanidze both have an asking price of around £4m each. Even players like Isak only went to Sociedad for £6.5m and Osimhen only cost Lille £15m.
You can replace him for £6m without a shadow of a doubt. If you get the recruitment right you can probably replace him for £2m. He only got 12 goals, it's hardly like we have to sign the next superstar.
But we do need the money to go into other areas. We now need a holding midfielder, an attacking midfielder and a RB along with 2 strikers.
All that being said, I'd fancy Longman and Allahyar to replace his 12 goals and 3 assists anyway.
Yes, probably not to us but he'll move for £2m.
And how many will he score in the Championship next season? If it's so easy picking up KLP's replacement..
But no transfer's a guarantee. We could sign Brereton Diaz, Gayle, Vydra and there's no guarantee they'd score 15.
This only works because you can play the odds. If KLP's replacement was going to cost £8m, it wouldn't be worth the risk at all and we'd be better off keeping Keano.
But, for the £16m we are getting, we could hypothetically sign 8 of the Allahyar/Wright types. If just 2 of those worked, we'd be in profit.
This can only happen though when you've got good knowledge of foreign league/s and why many clubs struggle. If you're just targeting the domestic leagues (and Scotland), replacing KLP becomes so much harder.
You don't say!
How on earth do you sign 8 players and give them all an equal opportunity in the side? Stop playing FM for a second and actually think about this.
I think I could count on one hand the number of times a player has been sold for a huge fee and the side has successfully replaced their output with a scattergun approach. How did Spurs, Liverpool or Villa cope when they lost their talismans?
That’s fine Red Top … if I can be of help then my pleasure to help a fellow Tiger! Good luck with it
Plus you end up paying 8 wages not 1.
Yeah I didn't even bother with that element as if transfer fees are the entire outlay in a transfer.
I do think it would be possible, given young English talent does carry a premium, to buy a perhaps older, overseas player capable of posting KLP's stats over last season for less than we've been offered however.
