Keeping my fingers crossed for tomorrow morning. Last week there was clickbait of a 15m bid. Monday morning it turned into a real bid. Hoping the clickbait this weekend of 18m is just that clickbait. Dreading opening my newsnow feed tomorrow
New £20m offer for McBurnie according to the bbchttps://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/49150355
It sounds like the same deal with with some addons which may or may not happen.It makes more sense to hold on to Oli, if we decide we want to cash in the January window, then at least we will know where we stand in the league. I dont believe Oli’s value is likely to diminish much and if we get less say £15m in January, then at least we will have have Oli scoring goals and given our new HoR to get a viable replacement.
@Cadleigh Essentially that means we are selling Oli in order to keep Ayew, Borja and Montero for another year. They will be gone then and so will Oli.Definitely a case of selling the family silver to pay the billsIf we wait we might get an Ayew or Montero off on loan instead.
It is our clubs MO the way this McBurnie deal is going. They wait until near the end of the transfer window to get as much as they can, and in doing so they completely mess up our season, and ruin all the good atmosphere at the club.They have a track record of not replacing with similar quality, if he goes, we will just have an average season maybe 14th or lower.Without Mcburnie, I can also see attendances drop by 2k or 3k a game. It will end up being of no benefit to selling him
