How much £££ for BR in transfer window.

Eh, I'd argue Maguire had done little to warrant his fee to be honest. You could also argue Mahrez form had dipped before he was sold and they still spent a lot, for them, on him. 

 

Transfer fees are about what someone's willing to pay in context and what the seller can afford to say no to. 

 

I personally think, given covid, we'll need the money and given the depth of our squad we'll need to buy. 

 

So I'm pretty sure a first team player will leave but it'll probably be for the same inflated rate we sell everyone to one of the same top four clubs that seem to have a hard on for our development. If we can get 40+ for Chilwell I can see it happening, full backs shouldn't be too expensive to replace. 

 

Madders would still be worth 70+ IMO, I'd be amazed if we settled for much less given he's the beating heart of our team. The only way we'd fold and let him go for less is if he plays hardball with his own contract negotiations.

I agree with that and I would guess that part of the reason a contract hasn't been signed yet would be that he and his agent may have been stalling to see whether or not we did actually qualify for the Champions League  and you can't blame them really. The same might go for any other player which is entirely reasonable in the circumstances from a purely career and business point of view.

There will be money to spend. Our owners aren't that daft to sink it all into the training ground. How much? we will have to wait and see but depending on how we finish this season Rogers may get a welcome cash boost. I just hope he spends it wisely. He can't afford to cock it up that's for sure!

we dont play with wingers.

Because ours are crap, i'd be very surprised if we don't bring at least 1 in. Benrahma surely is the main target if they don't come up.

Sad but true 

If that was true we'd not have taken out a long term loan to pay for it. Makes no sense to pay for things up front like that in football.

2 x wingers, 2 x CB's, 1 x forward vardy style and 1 x cam like Grealish. Minimum we need. Trouble is how much cash? And no Bennett either. 

 

BR will want to quickly move the team onto the next level next year and ive no doubt that the owners are aware of that and gave him their blessing when they signed new contracts. 

 

We have to spend big if we want to finish high up the table next year with the demands of European football.

Well that maybe what we need but to get quality in all those positions you're looking close on 200 million and we sure won't be spending anything like that unless we sell a couple of players.

I’d say as a minimum 1 cb, 1 winger and a striker.

obviously more would be great If we managed to get rid of squad players. And also versatile players would be a smart move. You mention grealish, and that would be ideal whilst I think it’s complete dreamland, someone who can play out wide and centrally would be smart.

Not realistic and not going to happen in a million years.

2We have 25 squad places.  We have some good players.  We will probably retain 19 of our current squad; that means there is room to recruit up to 6.  I think Thomas and Dewsbury-Hall, as U21s need to be in next season's squad to give numbers if there are to be 9 on the bench.  Presumably, Justin will be one of the 25 next year.

 

Three keepers:  Scmeichell, Ward, Jakupovic/Iversen

 

Defenders (8 or 9):  Perreira, Justin, Chilwell, Fuchs, Evans, Soyuncu.

 

If any of these leave, they need replacing.  We need a player who can play at right back until Perreira has recovered, ahead of, or as back up to Justin. Thomas does not count as one of the 25.  Benkovic can return.  Bennett is not what we need and is Morgan too old?  Unfortunately, Amartey looks like he is done here. We need another central defender, preferably with a bit of pace.  We either need a right back and central defender  or a player who can cover both positions.

 

Midfield: (6 or 7) N'didi, Choudhury, Tielemans, Maddison, Praet

 

I assume Mendy will go.  I can't see James being in the 25.  Dewsbury-Hall can be available.  We need to bring in at least one player who will probably be back up.  It may be that Knight might do a job Iin  the squad (would Matty James have done as well at Peterboro?)

 

Forwards (7ish):  Vardy, Barnes, Ienacho, Perez, Albrighton and possibly Gray.

 

Hopefully, we can make a marquee signing of a right winger.  We could bring in another central striker.

 

Six would be a lot of players to bring in.  When all of our players are fit, we have a strong team.  Two big signings and other sensible signings seems to be what we need.

But that'll ruin Congerton's contract talks with Andros Townsend and Phil Jones

lol What about Scott Sinclair. He'll be the winger we're after.

not a chance are we spending that much. 2 wingers that are PL standard= £70-£100m 2 CB's= £50m 1 striker=£30-£50m and  CAM of grealish quality at least £60m. At the very least that's £200m.

I agree. But looking at our squad as a whole and with our aspirations of retaining and becoming a top 6 club next year, then that's what we need.

With such a big outlay along comes the increased wages.Not going to happen.The club will continue to try and recruit the half hidden gems of the French,Belgium and Portuguese leagues and hope for our youth to come good.

Yes but we need to be smart and find value signings, that work, like Jonny Evans!

Why do I keep hearing about this Maguire money not been spent?

 

In the same window we brought Tielemans.  Plus our accounts show we need to make a profit on player trading to cover losses elsewhere in the club.

Does anyone know the difference in cash between Europa and CL as a ball park? 

Just done abit of research and not sure if it’s 100% accurate but what I can see is you get an initial €15.25mil for group stage of Champs League and €2.7mil for a win and €900k for a draw. In the Europa league it’s an initial €2.92 for the group stage, €570k for a win and €190k for a draw. Quite a big difference.
