I was not expecting such honesty. Fair enough. 

He always comes across as a decent bloke, plus it's definitely his right to name the price. I wonder if we could throw one or two loans his way to help?

Sounds to me like the £6.5m figure isn't correct. I doubt we would've made 3 bids if we needed to wait for players to leave before completing the deal

Comes across as a man that’s looking to get an auction going for his player, using social media to alert other clubs. 

Most likely slapped a whacky price on his head, will either end up going for a bit more than what’s been offered late on with the player lacking fitness having missed out on pre season. Or a club comes in pure panic and desperation, pays the whacky price. Looking at Leeds United when I say this.

Is he the players agent because he sure sounds like it

Fair play to posh for the way they do business its worked for them so far... In a way I hope he doesn't move cos they are being too greedy and they will lose out on a lot of money.

Them asking for 6.5m for a league 1 player is like us asking for 30m for Vydra and not being willing to negotiate.

Ultimately the player is the one that misses out.

I very much think we will need to offload a few to get this one over the line. 

Did he play as a lone striker last season or was he part of a front two?

It’s a very similar situation to us with Vydra. Their season also starts in 2 weeks, and he hasn’t played a minute of football. That interview leads you to believe that he won’t be featuring in the next friendly either, as his head isn’t in the right place. 

Their fee is probably too high, so it’ll be interesting to see if they lower it as the window nears closure and he still isn’t match fit.

Derby have put in 3 bids. They're 'not gonna give the Golden Boot winner away'.

Personally I think the risk for the money is too high. There's lots of strikers out there - we've just signed a quick winger. There's more to football than pace.

There's clearly something about him if Lampard's identified him as his no.1 target as someone (I think SDSR?) told us a while ago
