    So how long was that?

    Only if we had been watching him six months ago we could have got him for 250k like FC Zurich
    Is that true? Sure I read the chairman owns both clubs why he sold (moved him on) on the cheap.

      He didn't know, so he didn't answer.
      Perhaps he should have initially been asked, or as a follow up, 'how long has he been on the clubs radar'.

      Just guesswork but I read that conversation as - players a, b, c & d are now too expensive.
      Winstanley turned the page over in his note pad and said 'what about this fella?

      I doubt he was scouted as a primary target, they are now all too expensive, but the recruitment team were aware of him.
      They've had 4 or 5 league games to watch him as a main target and have pulled the trigger on the deal.

      Sadly £10-12m isn't a gamble for a Premier League centre forward, is barely above bargain basement, age and contract etc.



      .....and this is the problem. £10m seems like a hell of a lot of dosh to us from where we've come from but relative to the money being spent elsewhere in the PL we are shopping in the bargain basement where purchases are made in the hope that the risk will pay off rather than in the certitude that the player will become a genuine PL player that we can sell on a couple of years down the line for a massive profit.

      Relative to our likely season revenue, I guess it's the equivalent of paying a couple of million a season or two ago. It's mental.

      It absolutely is. Hyper-inflation, what would've been worth 2 or 3 million a year ago is now 4 or 5 times more expensive. Southampton have just paid 15 million for Wesley Hoedt who has made a couple of appearances for the Dutch national team.
      All transfer fees are relative now.

      Changed mind today. No way will Bloom pin all our hopes on this unknown from a noddy league regardless of the potential.

      We WILL be signing someone of note still.

      Obviously nobody every knows for sure, but given his age, experience and pedigree up until this point I'd imagine that Dwamena is going to need time to settle in and get used to English football and living in a new country. We must remember that he's only 21 and be realistic with our expectations.

      My fear is that if he doesn't look like the finished article in the first game the usual suspects (who constantly slated Barnes/Hemed/Skalak etc) are going to be on his back straight away.

      There's a few who have already made up their mind.
