For some reason I still think we have Vydra lined up if we do sell JRod.

What would peoples opinions be if we sold Rondon and Jay this week and brought in the following:

Gayle
one of Vydra/Assombolonga/Maddison

Would people be happy with that business?

I don’t think that would be the worst outcome. They certainly have proven pedigree in this league.

I've advocated Vydra and Gayle since the end of last season.

Vydra wants 50 grand a week if report's are to be believed, that's why his recent transfer fell through. I can't see us agreeing to his wage demands.

I can see those demands dropping if no one else comes in for him and his only other option is to sit on the derby bench for the season.

We'd still be a striker short in that scenario. In fact, we'd be 2 strikers short if one of the players was Maddison.

At £2.5m, we should be able to sign Maddison without it being dependent on anything else. It wouldn't be a costly experiment if it didn't work out, but he might just blossom still further at a higher level. I regard it as a no-brainer to sign him.

I suppose they will offer 50% of what we want and the remainder payable over 5  years linked to number of goals, games played in the Champions League, World Cup appearances for Outer Mongolia or some other unachievable targets so as to waste our time, unsettle the player and any payment to be made on the 8th August at 9:30 pm by cheque 8)

that would be a generous offer by Levy standards.

While I get Spurs being interested, I can't see Levy paying a fee that would interest us at this late stage.

Rodriguez would be very difficult to replace, as he can play in 3 different roles in our forward line, something the likes of Vydra cannot do.

I feel clubs have left it too late now to get Rodriguez, especially with Rondon having left

He can't though he's a better than average centre forward who is dreadful when played wide or off the striker.

If Spurs are interested and that would be a big IF, I would ask for Jansen as part of the deal !

Like Rodriguez but if we can get 18 or close to that we could get 2 quality championship players for that price (a creative midfielder, Centre Half and Striker are a must).

If we replace him then 18 million is an fantastic amount for a player of his ability. I would like 2 strikers a vydra and a target man just as a plan B.. maybe a bargain like Matt Smith from QPR. Newcastle did the same with Daryl Murphy when they came up, he was only ever a signing for the championship.

I think he looks lost when played anywhere other than up front and central. Let's get specialists in their positions rather than rely on someone else being able to "do a job" in more than one role.

Look how good he was when he started for us - it's because he started up top. For me, him and Gayle are competing to start and then we player a number 10 with whomever gets picked.

Vydra looks set to sign for Burnley, could this mean the end of their interest in J-Rod? Hopefully that's that, still have to hope Dawson stays though.

Hope we knock that on the head, if true. He is a very important part of the strike force which will be needed over 46 games.

Who ever goes now, we have to make sure we have some one lined up before letting them go.
Does that mean Vydra is still available, surely Burnley dont want both?

I would take £18m all day provided we have a cast iron replacement.
For me Rodriguez has never been more than ok for us, not really set the world alight and looked very poor on Saturday. Think he will be one of those that didn't really work out and to make a shrewd profit would not be bad business.
If, however, it moves Hal Robson Cannot up the pecking order then we should hold out for at least £273m. Plus add ons.
