    No problem with him or Wilson, however I saw that the press were putting a £25m price tag on King. If thats true then I dont see him coming to Spurs as I cant see us spending that on a 28 year old back-up this season

    25m quoted means 12m after Levy has been negotiating.

    Which is more realistic
    Problem with him or Wilson is their injury issues

    I see that Brentford have signed Ivan Toney from Peterborough, Toney was top scorer in league 1 last season. Only £5m as well. I expect they'll sell Watkins in the coming week or two now and be £12 million or so up overall.

    They seem to do very impressive business there. Do they have a DoF type of set up?

    They do, but it's their setup that's the key. They have the same owner as Danish side Midtjylland and both clubs are run on the 'moneyball' principles. Statistical data and mathematical modelling.

    I saw that Brentford were being linked with taking Jack Clarke on loan earlier in the window. I think that'd be an excellent move for us.

    Two DOFs who basically debate and agree everything and an owner who made his money in sports betting and data
    Their comfortably the best run club in the U.K. IMO
    They have everything right to suit them and they progress year on year
    New stadium too

    If we was to buy a Norwegian.. Get Alexander Sørloth, yea I know he failed at Crystal P. But hes 24 fast and at Trabzonspor he scored 24 goals in 34 games, this season he has 7 goals in 7 games...

    Can’t see them selling him and Wilson and the latter is done for Newcastle now

    True, but with 10 months left on his contract, and now in the Championship, can they really write-off say £10m-£15m? They'd be gambling that keeping him can get them back into the PL

    Nope you could argue not
    But if they can get back promoted it’s a gamble worth taking
    Goals in that division get you promoted
    TBH I haven’t a clue who else they have as an option to okay up top but didn’t they just put 5 past West Ham so their capable ... as much as west ham are awful

    They have Solanke and some other young bloke I can't remember. Have no idea what your first paragraph is supposed to mean :confused:

    That was meant to say they can gamble on get promoted by keeping him, as it’s worth more

    solanke is imo awful big the championship is his level and I forgot about him

    Can’t comment on the other player as I haven’t a clue

    guess it all depends on the aspirations they have now as a club

    They can of course gamble, they can take any gamble they want.

    That doesn't make it a good gamble to take.
