From what i've heard from my Huddersfield supporting mates he's a big target for them and they are talking £10m

£12m with Kachunga or Quaner coming our way would be ideal.

This is typical Wednesdayite thinking AT ALL TIMES.  Buy a player relatively cheaply by today's prices, get him fully fit, up and running, scoring freely, making himself almost a match winner on his own, and almost indispensible. THEN SELL HIM irrespective of FFP or such.

Its the Wednesday way.

 

All clubs do this, I’d argue Wednesday don’t do it enough, players values are up and down all the time dependant on the form they’re in. Selling a player when their stock is high is just good business, because inevitably their value will drop. We should have sold forestieri 18 months ago when he was flying. Reported 8 figure bids were coming in which we turned down. And since then he’s been constantly in and out of the side through injury and his form has dried up, probably costing us millions

We just have to hope there are a couple of clubs considering him. A bit of competition will drive the price up.

Let's hope that NOBODY is interested in him and he stays with us to play at Wembley in May next year.

If you all don't mind, I'm going to masturbatorally quote a post I made on the 28th December 2016

 

 

I think as far as relative to the cost of some of the signings we've made, Reach at £5 million has been poor. 0 goals and 2 assists for a wide attacking player isn't good.

I think as far as relative to the cost of the transfer market in general these days, Reach at £5 million is a fantastic piece of business and an excellent long-term investment.

Personally, I'm very happy we got him, and I think the price we got him isn't anywhere near as inflated or over the top as some might think. It's hard to view things differently because he's one of Wednesday's most expensive transfers ever, so you expect with that label him to be a show stopper most games. Reality is, he's not, and it's more a reflection of how little Wednesday have spent in the market rather than him being a poor signing.

 

Just y'all wait, in 24 months that £5 million will seem like an absolute steal 

 

 

 

I'm good lol 

Oh who's a clever little student then.

Any idea of Saturday's lotto numbers?

Maybe apart from his cameo appearance in the playoff semi when he tore us a new one :duntmatter:

Pathetic how people are constantly clamouring to sell our best players. Huddersfiield ffs.

We need to sell them to meet FFP requirements as specified by Premier Dejphon. £20m for Reach clears our worries and would free up funds for new players.

New players nowhere near as good as the ones we have. Now what would that achieve on the football field?

What players are nowhere near as good as what we have? We haven't signed anyone. No need to be so negative.

I'm  just applying the logic that says you get what you pay for. To improve on Reach we would have to spend more than we received for him, so unless we did that the team would be weakened.

Udders not really ambitious for Reach. Possibly be relegated and playing against us next season.

So what do you suggest when he declines a new contract and leaves for nothing? Obviously in an ideal world our best players will stay, but football isn’t like that. The club has to spot when we can make the best return on players and use the funds to reinvest/keep us out of an FFP embargo.

It’s not though is it?  

 

We’re in the mess we are because we haven’t sold any players.

Listen to offers for anybody.

 

Sell for any that are decent.

 

Let's recoup some of the daft money spent from someone else spending daft money and then take the opportunity to ease some of the financial pressure and bring in some positive, winning mentality.

 

Freeze season ticket prices, show some ambition and chuck a bit at some feelgood PR to build some bridges - 4 or 5 cheap POTG offers, one kid, one free, pensioners day with free pie and Bovril and not forgetting a Couples Masturbation Matchday Special on The Kop for Valentines Day with complimentary club crest embossed wetwipes.  They'll be coming in droves.

Not really. To get Reach we didn’t have to spend more than we might get for him so we wouldn’t necessarily have to spend more to replace him. That’s what championships clubs often need to do. Buy low, sell high, replace lower.

This and sonofbert2

Reach has come on leaps and bounds as a player... yes he still neshes challenges but he is a clever footballer and will suit the prem... actually maybe he neshes challenges to never get injured because he is clever.

Don't think he has ever missed a game for us thru injury.

Sell when his stock has value... hate to say it but the Derby model is the way to go. Sell the likes of Vydra.

Similar to Leeds selling Wood.

We should have sold Tom Lees when Burnley came asking. 

Venancio could have done the job for us at 20% of the price.

With that kind of attitude Liverpool wouldn’t have the team they have now. They have consistently sold their best player for huge profits for the last few years in a row. If you think that the transfer policy of championship Sheff Wednesday which has been sign everyone and sell no one is sustainable however then great, it’s served us well over the last 3 years hasn’t it?
