There's something about Burke that I like. There's a player in there somewhere. Somewhere. Somewhere very deep. Pity Jacques Cousteau's dead as he could have come in handy  ;D .

I know I shouldn't be but I'm quietly impressed with the amount of whooshes the quoted post has attracted  ;D .

I'd be pleased if we can get £2m or £3m for the guy, just to get his wages of the books.

Wishful thinking.

The best we can hope for given what terrible player he is, is someone just taking over the remainder of his contract.

Great to one day find our what we actually paid and lost from his signing.

You know when we get linked to odd random players and people rightly suspect it is an agent trying to generate a bit of interest in their player or get an interested party to get a move on I think the club has just done that with Oliver Burke.

https://www.expressandstar.com/sport/football/west-bromwich-albion/2020/08/21/clubs-line-up-to-grab-west-broms-oliver-burke/

This is the equivalent of an auctioneer picking bids up from the wall in a slow auction. Look there is massive interest in Olly Burke you really don't want to miss out we have already rejected a loan bid come and get your Olly Burke while you still can.

If this works whoever is doing it gets a statue although I wouldn't be commissioning the artist just yet.

Every time I see another addition to this thread I get a little excited in the hope that somebody has been as daft as us and bought him.

'Clubs line up to sign Ollie Burke'
Express and star headline  ;D

I hope whoever is doing the sell on Burke is also concentrating as hard on incomings

A stopped clock is right twice a day and that is about as frequently as the Turkish press is right about a transfer story, please let this be one of the two times they are right today.

Hope its a permanent deal. Otherwise this will drag on next year.

I wonder if a ‘Taxi to Turkey’ would cost more than the Burke is worth?

A taxi from Moor St Station to New Street station would cost more than Burke is worth.

An absolute t urd of a player brought to us by Pulis' £5m Court case loss imo.

if the straight swap for Robinson goes ahead I think Wilder may just be about to come unstuck after a brilliant run.

Burke's one of those that looks like he has all the tools to be a decent player. At a knockdown price, Wilder obviously thinks he has what it takes to unlock his talent. Personally I think it would take a combination of Derren Brown and Merlin the Magician to get a tune out of him so get the deal done, before Wilder comes to his senses!

Great news this!  Wilder must be mad and it proves he's a good championship manager punching above his weight. He should be looking at real quality.

At least Robinson has got a modicum of skill plus reasonable pace.

Mr Wilder if you reading this take no notice of the other contributors to this thread and go ahead and purchase Oliver Burke AS SOON AS POSSIBLE!!!

He is an absolute gem of a player whose tactical nous puts the rest of the team in the shadow.   I've no hesitation in saying that he plays a different game to the most professional footballers.

People on hear are merely trying to dissuade you from getting your inimitable managerial hands on Oliver because they want to retain him at all costs but I being a reasonable bloke want what's best for him and so I send you this endorsement.
