Sporadically, I'm not saying don't sell. Not saying don't buy Hugill either...but we would lose a bit of wow factor. 

Yeah we would! however I'd like to think we will sign one maybe two who can change games and have abit of showmanship and hopefully be consistent with it.

Time will tell I suppose!

Some good points made about Forestieri been in the last year of his contract. Think his value has dropped significantly after another poor season by his standards. Somebody would take a gamble at 5 or 6 million and the sooner we can get rid of Rhodes wages the better, I’d even take a minimal fee or another loan and João is is definitely ready for a move. Again someone would gamble for 3 or 4 million.

I’ve thought for sometime that with the Bruno Lage link that Joao is more likely to end up at Benfica than anywhere else? I’m not sure where Forrestieri will end up, if anywhere else this season? I still think Rhodes will end up at Norwich. They want him and it would seem he wants to go there?

 

Yes I don’t share the hilarity about Joao playing for Benfica myself. There’s no money in Portugal these days and their expectations of doing well in the champions league is the same as in Scotland. Their clubs main priority now is develop young players and sell them and build cheap squads that can win their domestic competitions.  Joao on their bench wouldn’t look out of place in their domestic games.  I wouldn’t be surprised if we sold Joao to a club like Benfica for about £3m. But clearly Chansiri is pushing for up to £8m

Joao has ability but just isn't consistent and too often anonymous in games

He certainly does have ability, it just dosent look like the penny is going to drop with him that he has to work hard! 

I wonder how he performs in training! I also wonder if his fellow players think he is a lazy ass!

Put your rumours in here.

 

Snodgrass.

 

Of course, when creating this thread, which is definitely not a mega-thread, I already knew about the increased player budget.

 

As Snodgrass said 2-3 months ago, speaking to Uncle Biggsy, “I have a bit of banter with the Wednesday fans, and Wednesday are a great club. I would never say no to playing for a great club like Wednesday, and playing for Steve Bruce is a no-brainer, he’s a great manager and anyone would jump through hoops to play for that manager and club combo. Who knows, me and my agent were talking about a possible move this summer, let’s see what happens.”

I think we have to bite the bullet and start letting players go. This should free up at least 90k per week in wages and realistically we should get circa 10m for these 3

 

Hugill is an upgrade on Nuhui so strengthens that bit of the forward line. Providing Bruce is given the rest of the money to bring in another pacey forward then I’m all for it

 

These 3 scored approx 20 league between them last season whereas players like Pukki, Sharp etc were getting more than 20 by themselves. We can’t be carrying passengers any longer

 

The money could also allow us to bid for Hector

Good point about ff last year contract, DC should be offering him a contract now if he wants to keep him if not sell him

Also worth noting the Hugill signing would be a loan and we also have Leeds interested in him. Same with the Ben Gibson link, he signed for Burnley for £15m last season so that would be a loan but I personally feel getting Gibson would be a huge signing, I’m expecting Bruce will be utilising the loan market

To be fair I thought Hugill was a handful for Preston. But since his move to West Ham he’s not done much. Very similar to a fletcher, holds the ball up, bullies defenders but not an out and out goal scorer. If we’re going to trade the 3 players we are for him, I’d hope there’s another forward on Bruce’s list too.

 

I'm not a fan of Hugill, and wouldn't say he is that much similar to Fletcher.

 

In my opinion he had couple of decent seasons at Preston, and that's all he ever did in the game. For transfer fee and wages he would probably demand doesn't look like a worthwhile gamble to me.

 

Cosgrove from Aberdeen is a same type of player, younger then Hugill and would cost lot less. Although I'm not huge fan, if we need that type of striker I would rather gamble on him then Hugill.

Those two on loan would be excellent.

Joao and FF are worth 20 goals between them at least. Hugill unlikely to match that, so I don’t think he’d be the only target but we may go one up front (Fletcher, Hugill, Nuhiu) and bring in more players who play attacking midfield and score from there

Benfica should have plenty of spare cash once they’ve sold Joao Felix but I don’t think for one minute we’ll get £8m for Lucas. We might get as you say £3m plus add-ons?

I would imagine we have an optional 1 year extension, much like we had with Westwood

I think we should value our players higher than that but not as high as Chansiri does. I mean Forest are talking £15M for Joe Lolley for example. Hugill was sold for £10M. Madine for £6M. Joao is worth mpre than £3M to us. I'd rather keep him.

8m is bang on for Joao in this market as per my previous post in this thread. Leeds want 30m for Phillips! If selling him doesn’t allow us to buy a direct replacement or one or two key players there’s no point as we’d be short of 10 goals a season.

I agree.

 

By the same token I can understand if he doesn't fit Bruce's ethos and he wants rid.

 

João is a very talented player but he doesn't suit the high press style.

I can see both sides of it that's all.

 

I like João but he has to fit Bruce's plan or there is no point keeping him.

I wouldn't be against Hugill. He's a mobile targetman of good age. Can understand people's concerns re binning Joao & FF to do it though. They are the two in our squad capable of summat special - apart from a long-ranger from Reach of course. Sell those two and replace with Harris n Hugill...we'd have zero flair. 

I used to think that but I’ve seen Cardiff, Huddersfield and the pigs win promotion in the last couple of years, and they all had zero flair. I’d gladly cash in on FF, Reach and Joao if it meant Bruce could get his own players in
