It's not the case that it's old. If we plan to make money on players and become as close to self sufficient as we can we need to sell players when it makes sense to.Whats with everyone thinking 28/29 is old? Those are peak years for a footballer
While I agree about Kamara, Jack is just as good for me, he was a big miss for us on Thursday especially during the first half, I'm pretty certain the gaffer knows it
A quick look at our books should help them.Clear to see that a lot of fans are going to struggle with our inevitable transition to a proper selling club as we progress year on year.
This isn't a guy who has had one or two good performances, it's being a standout against top teams regularly for both us and Finland. If a team want him then they'll pay the top dollar he's worth.
I think this much is obvious.
Kamara for me is a £25 million pound player, he’s just turned 25, has 3 years left on his contract and is only going to get better.
I don’t want him going anywhere and we’ve no need to sell so it’s up to a buying club to give us a price that makes us unable to turn down. Anything below £25 million doesn’t do that.
Correct, but the fans can’t act like babies when these players are eventually sold.I reckon we'll sell a few players this summer. Especially if we win the title. A few of them will likely feel like they can further their careers elsewhere. Kamara has been in Scotland for quite a while, he maybe fancies a challenge in a new league. That's pure speculation on my part of course but it shouldn't be a surprise to anyone.
This sucks to hear, but we really do need to take the next step and begin selling players for our business model to workout. Alfredo Morelos wins a title this year and his form picks up, he'll likely go in the summer. I wouldn't be surprised to see us sell one more and would not be surprised if that was Kamara, especially after the damage Covid has done. I love them both and would love for both to hang around a while longer but it's how we replace them that matters most to me. I'd sooner sell Kamara than say Goldson. We win the league we'll get bids from all over the place and for a lot of our squad. Barisic is another one I expect will gain a lot of interest, especially, if Croatia have a strong Euros.
We cant keep talking about our 'business model' and then not actually sell any of the assets. I know we'll hopefully have Champions League football by then, but all of these internationalists that we are so fond of, some of them could still be playing while those qualifiers are taking place in the summer.
