The fees are insane. 

£30m rejected for a sprog who has hardly kicked a ball.

Now £19m for another one.

No wonder we have to loan players.

 

Utterly staggering sums of money ( plus wages) for people who haven’t even established a place on the football pitch !

Snake City have confirmed Afobe and Ryan Woods on permanent deals according to SSN.

I haven't yet checked the oatcake forum for reactions - maybe @Lambchopcould find a couple of select cuts imagining how these players will benefit from Gary and the team's coaching 😂

Can't be bothered to look for quotes, but I'm sure I've seen them say that Woods has regressed from the promise he originally showed, and that Afobe has been isolated and ineffective in Rowett's system. 

Don't imagine they'll be particularly thrilled, but McClean is the one that annoys them the most.

Worth a mention as it’s a player who’s name pops up a lot as a potential loan signing. 

Well he certainly seems excited at the thought of it ...😦

Wood it be premature to start the puns yet?  Maybe this will cum to nothing? It's a hard one to call.

He’s certainly got what it takes to get in behind with the quality of his balls. 🤭

Paid double what any of them are worth.

I actually think Solanke for £19m is very good value. I had the pleasure of watching him in a lot of youth team games when he was at Chelsea and he was unbelievable. Tammy Abraham was coming through, a year behind at the time, and he was scoring at the same rate but didn't have anywhere near the technical ability. I'm surprised it hasn't happened for him yet, although he hasn't had a proper chance. I'd be delighted as a Bournemouth fan based on what I've seen, even if it was 4-5 years ago now. He was comfortably the best young player I watched at Academy level. 

As for another signing that caught my eye - Celtic have signed Oli Burke on loan from WBA. He was dynamite when he first started out at Forest. He scored four goals in five games in the first month of the 2017 season. He hasn't done much since then, but I'd have definitely taken a chance on him.

Yer like nearly 20 million quid for Butterfield, Anya and Johnson was an inspired piece of transfer business

When you think barely a couple of years earlier we picked up, Forsyth, Martin, Bryson, Russell, Ward, Keogh, Buxton for he price of two pints and a bag of pork scratchings.
