Yeah, when have we ever signed a decent player from bloody Barnsley, eh!?

 

:duntmatter:

Of course there was one 30 years ago who turned out well but this is a Barnsley side just promoted from the pub league and we are nearly 2 years into our mega money assault on the premiere league.

Don't get me wrong if these 2 sign from Barnsley they will get my full support. That's not my point,  if we were signing a couple of Brighton players or a couple from a premiere league players I could understand it but 36 pages on Owlstalk about a couple of Barnsley players.

Barnsley are doing ok this year good luck to them. I've nothing against them but we should be shopping at Harrods not Lidl if we are serious about promotion.

Where a player comes from makes no difference if they're good enough. And if we can sign good players at low cost due to them coming from 'lesser' clubs...even better!

 

Kieran Lee came from Oldham Athletic, and he's one of our best players.

You shop wherever they have the goods.

So we should be just blowing huge sums of money then for the sake of it? 

 

Nonsense.

Let's blow £10 million on Rhodes instead of less than half of that on Winnall and Hourihane just because Rhodes plays for a PL side.

Exactly. 

 

Such an odd mentality. 

 

Some fans are seemingly only happy if the club is splashing out huge sums in terms of transfer fees. 

 

As I pointed out earlier: many of our key players were signed on free or nominal fees.

I think big price tag puts a lot of pressure on some players.

You want to go out there and just play not be saddled by am I worth 15m quid thoughts.

Some players are beat before they've even started with a new club.

Look at Adam Reach. 

 

Every time he has an indifferent game all we hear about is the 5 million we are meant to have spent on him.

No I'm not against a bargain, I'm not even against these 2 players in particular. I'm commenting about Owlstalkers wetting their shorts about 2 half decent players.

 

I thought we had moved on. Set our sights a bit higher. This is so Milan Mandaric.

Rhodes is a little bit like Alan Clarke, did very little other than score 25 or 30 goals a season lol Problem is who would play the part of Mick Jones for Rhodes. BIt risky IMO

It's a new signing (potentially). 

 

They'll always be a daft amount of pages. 

 

A lot of those key players were signed during the Mandaric era btw.

We have been poo for years at not identifying young talent from the lower leagues! Plus we were never patient enough with them - Grant Holt springs to mind!
