i can't see him going to Liverpool they have Divock Origi who they loaned out to Lillie coming back next year

He looked pants from what i saw of him in the week against Everton.

If a club came in with 25million in January then I would snap their hands off.

If we reject it and Saido goes on to have a poor rest of the season then there is no way he would fetch that money in the summer.

you sound like a finance director. not a football fan.

I think we all know £25mill would be enough.
It is a mistake to theorize before one has the facts. Insensibly one begins to twist facts to suit theories, instead of theories to suit facts.

No we don't.

A direct replacement would be £12-15 minimum. Selling him to make a small profit would be very short sighted. Young, British, Scoring.... Worth more than money to us and I'd be very surprised at a sale this Jan.

We'd definitely sell at £25 million. The direct replacement is Ideye, that's the Albion for you.

we would HAVE to sell at 25 mil because we could not possibly make him so unhappy - I'm all for fighting player power but stopping a move to Liverpool or Arsenal is going too far and is in no-ones best interest.

aside from all of that its the right thing to do anyway - sure he may kick on and score goals all his acreer but at least 30% chance he turns out to be a flash in the pan.

Does make the 10 we paid for Brown a look a bit toppytho doesnt it.

cant believe that anyone thinks we will actually have a choice in whether to sell or not

if he keeps this form up he'll be gone next summer. really hope he doesn't go in Jan.

if he gets 15-20 goals + couple of england caps, we should easily get £25m for him.

Don't know if he will want to go in the summer he may have his head screwed on and at least have another season where he can develop and the fans will give him time and not be waiting for results straight away. I also doubt very much he'll leave for anyone in January has he's currently scoring freely for us and as anyone knows it won't matter how much we get for him you can't buy anyone decent in the January sales

Definitely wouldn't sell him at all. Whatever the money, he's a goalscorer and you don't find many of those. If we haven't progressed as a club and are no where near Europe in the next couple of seasons then I won't begrudge him a move away if he has outgrown us. It would have to be a big offer though as we are in a strong position financially.
Ohhhhh Albion we love you!

Lets be honest there's no way we would turn down £25 million.

It's easy to say we should not sell him no matter what the price but if a genuine big offer came in, it would be hard for a club of our size to turn down.

Going on the crazy prices paid for british players recently I would say £25million was about where that offer becomes tempting.

However, there isn't a club at the moment that I would say would be willing to splash that on him and that's why I think he will stay at least until the summer.

I would love him to stay, become and Albion legend and win a couple of trophies but sadly it don't work like that anymore and he'll be off as soon as a tempting offer comes his way, no matter how much he comes out and says different.

The risk of course of not selling is that he is a one season wonder or he gets injured and ends up like Ishmael Miller did.

Of course it's a risk, if he was 100% going to have a similar goalscoring record over the next 12 years like Defoe for a random example, then in the modern market that's worth £30mill all day long. We risk by selling him and they risk by buying him.

If you have a guy scoring 15+ Prem goals a season in your team you'd be hard pressed to go down. You'd like to go Mowbray in the defence. He's worth more here than mere money, but if he won't sign a contract (no reason to believe he won't) then we may have to sell to be prudent.

Why would we accept £25 million from the Scousers when they were happy to pay £50 million for Andy Carroll?

It was £35 mil for Carroll they sold Torres for £50 mil to Chelski.


Personally think £25 mil is about right.  We'll need a good percentage of that to bring in another equivalent striker who is perhaps more proven.

It's dependant on their contract, but common practice is 10%, unless they hand in a transfer request, in which case it's 0% (which is the whole point of the fuss behind transfer requests/plus it's a public deceleration.

As the contract he signed was a 1st proper one after being a youth, i doubt there's anything special in it.

Strong rumours around the stadium, Said could be off in Jan for £25m+, top PL teams like Liverpool, Arsenal, Spurs all sniffing, and with Brown waiting in wings, they could well accept.

Round the stadium? Is there a game on we don't know of?
