Was only a couple of years ago that people were shouting for us to just pay the money when it came to the rumoured £8m wanted for Scott Sinclair. With that in mind I'm happy enough to trust the club on this one.

As I said before I just see it as posturing from both clubs and do believe there is a compromise to be found but it could come down to the player handing in a transfer request.
That's one example though, how often do we lose out over a few quid and end up with cheaper options that don't cut it.
I agree re trusting the club, but the scouting team are a massive part of that and if they identify someone that they really want then we should go for it, even if it means paying a bit more. Quality over quantity.
We all know that wingers are our priority this window, so let's make a point of doing everything in our power to get our first choice targets.

We have our valuations of players while the selling clubs have theirs. If someone is willing to pay what the selling club wants and we don't want to match it then so be it that is the name of the game.

7-8 million for a player who's cv reads Blackpool-relegated from prem
                                                                          QPR -        relegated rrom prem
 Says it all really lets move on.                             

Equally Big Vics CV says never relegated from the PL  :P

On a serious note, was it last year or the year before when Hoillet wouldn't join us because we wouldn't meet his 60k week demands? He can rot in the Chump for me.....

I'd rather us go to 8m for Philips than 6m Antonio

Nani went for 4.3m. Would not pay more than 6m

http://www.theguardian.com/football/blog/2015/jul/07/nani-manchester-united-fenerbahce

Nani only had one year left on his contract, while Philips has two years left.  This is a big factor in player values.   Important to compare like with like.

Phillips would want 40/50k? Nani was on 115k. Pretty much why he was sold so cheap no one should be paying that a week for Nani!

According to tonight's E&S we may forget Phillips and go for Forest's Antonio, we made an offer for him in January but wouldn't pay the asking price. What was it, anyone remember? £2m that would be about right for us.

Jeez.

I'd rather we were looking at the likes of Jarvis and Downing, players with top flight experience before Antonio. My mates a Forest fan and hardly raves about him.

Someone who I know his information is quite reliable says we've agreed a fee of 8.2m

Slightly too much for me but I'd be happy with this to come off even at 8.2m

Well you weren't wrong about the badge on the Albion kit so hopefully you're right again!

Unless there's been some quiet bids inbetween, I doubt we'd jump from £5m to £8.2....but we will see.

It's been widely reported/rumoured we had a bid of £7m turned down.

It was 5 million we had rejected not 7.

Named in the QPR squad for their training camp in Italy that sets off today so doesn't look like anything has been agreed.

The sources on Twitter who claimed the fee was agreed, one of which is at the QPR end, are still adamant that its agreed and don't see why he's been named.

Can only assume that A) it hasn't been agreed B) it has and he doesn't want to come and has no interest in talking to us or C) it was agreed so late yesterday that none of the QPR media knew to change or could be bothered to change the press releases for today.

Or D) It's generally bad practice to freeze out and/or not train one of your players when it's not 100% guaranteed he will be going, so he can go and start pre-season with them, and then we don't end up with a player 1-2 weeks behind the rest of the squad
