    It’s very sad, JR is a player we had coveted for years and comes across as a great lad. Very disappointing that it just hasn’t worked for him here.

    I'd drive him there myself if it wasn't such an awful route consisting of mainly A Roads and a high possibility of getting stuck behind lorries and tractors several times for long periods during the journey.

    I'd have thought the bare minimum would be a fee that covers whatever Middlesbro are owed this season ... plus 100% of his wages for the duration of the loan ... plus something for the kitty We aren't a charity after all

    We should have gone for Marshall when we signed Rhodes. Marshall even made Madine look a decent striker. Norwich are piecing the jigsaw together well. Don't let him go out cheap Wednesday, or that's a promotion place given away.

    Maybe I'm slow, but I've just noticed "PRO-FIT" is an obvious play on the word "profit".

    and as he is only on loan, and he recovers his form, then we get him back when all the other guys currently in their last year of contracts move on.

    The sale of Hunt is very dependent on his replacement...assuming there is one. If we bring in a young, athletic wing back, then fine. I'd still feel that £1.6m for a modern day full back in his prime is having your pants pulled down...regardless of his contract status. For a comparison...Bristol's Joe Bryan, is very similar to Hunt in terms of the type of player he is, has played a lot less games at this level, but is a couple of years younger...he's out of contract in 12 months time...what is Bristol's asking price? £10m. I'm not saying they'll get that...but it's a long way off the £1.6m were been robbed for. However, if we rely on Liam Palmer and Ash Baker...we'll soon realise how fortunate we were having Hunt at right back. I simply cannot agree with anybody who tries to justify Palmer as a suitable ready made replacement. Palmer is lazy, has the heart of a pea, and is inferior both offensively and defensively. He's poor...always has been, and has shown no improvement since he's been moved to right back. From the brief performance we saw from Baker on the final day, I'd suggest Baker has more in his locker than Palmer has, already. A loan deal for Byram...just doesn't add up. By all accounts a move to Forest is agreed, they are just waiting for West Ham to sign a right back themselves. But a loan deal for Byram wouldn't be cheap also. I reckon we'd be looking at a loan fee of close to Hunt's transfer fee, and his wages will undoubtedly be higher than Hunt's. All that for a player that isn't our own. It wouldn't make any financial sense whatsoever. A loan move for Ola Aina, who was at Hull last season, may be an interesting alternative. Still pretty raw, but played a lot of games last season, is lightening quick and physically strong. If we're looking to reinvest, Nathan Byrne could be a shrewd signing. He's out of contract in 12 months time, and so should cost less than Hunt, both in transfer fee and wages. Can play all the way down the right flank, and has pace and a bit of quality in the final third also.

    He's a really nice bloke ... But this is serious stuff .. Unless tactically Jos Lukhay Has completely changed the way our team plays to accommodate a goal hanging striker then its get rid time .. Been around the block too many times now this discussion it's sink or swim? Jo Brand or Mark Spitz You decide ? ..........

    Our struggles last season just highlighted that he is our most important player. Without him we're nothing more than a mid-table side.

    It's to help increase traffic on fans forums. People can argue for years about whether Jordan Rhodes cost 8 or 10 million. You should be pleased Neil.

    My main worry about letting him go has always been that he will rediscover his goal-scoring form of old. Because the only clubs which can afford him are our rivals. And bearing in mind his record against us, well, I hardly need to say ...

    What an absolutely fatuous and juvenile remark - implying that people who are not interested/do not follow/don't care about the national football team actually despise their own country. Looks like you may be becoming a caricature of your own avatar.

    Bit of a scaremongering title really. Every club in the entire football league will have quality players in the same situation as B.B. It’s part and parcel of the modern game and unfair to highlight it as exclusive to Wednesday.

    Generally thats what happens when different people have different opinions. Some people don't rate him, others do. Or are you suggesting you remember every posters opinion on Jack Hunt and their opinions have now changed? Please clarify.

    Fair point too. DC has done the loan first to permanent deals on 3 or 4 occasions now (another if we get Venancio) so it seems to be his preferred route. Obviously this is all speculation but whether Wolves would do that who knows.

    So what makes you think differently? Who have we signed? Why have we sold our first choice right back to a rival for less than we paid for him , when he is under contract. ?

    Bit disappointed if I'm honest. a) Although he has his detractors overall he's surely one of our better players b) He's the only good Championship quality full back in the squad (in my opinion) c) In a time of vastly inflated transfer fees we're somehow managing to sell him for less than we paid - typical Wednesday. Of course, we'll only know if this is a good move when we see who we replace him with. If Palmer & Baker are our only right-backs then it doesn't bode well. If however we get in a bargain / loan and use some of the money to buy Venancio then overall I'd say it's decent business. Must have been brewing for a few days cos on reflection he was the only member of the first team squad (except Winnall) that wasn't at Hillsborough on Sunday.

    Agreed Always has been my choice too. I seriously hope we don’t go into the season with Liam Palmer as our first choice. No where near good enough. Id hope for Sam Bryon on loan perhaps?
