Well Up For It!

2015/16 Ins & Outs

Recommended Posts

Any time I've seen him play for United he's dived all over the penalty box - not a trait we want to encourage at Fir Park.

Aye, I'm really glad Fletcher stayed on his feet and stumbled around the box at Tynecastle. I had a wee smile thinking "I'm glad our players are completely honest, and don't dive".

‘Well braced for Johnson bid

BOURNEMOUTH are preparing a bid for Motherwell winger Marvin Johnson, believed to be in the region of £1 million.

The former Kidderminster star has made over 30 appearances for Motherwell but could be tempted by the English Premier League. (Various)

If it's a million, that would be a great bit of business.

 

Still don't believe it, though.

If it happens...For 10 good games in a Motherwell shirt, turn a £150k investment into £1M is job well done. Reinvest in another 2 or 3 from the scouting list and pay off some debts.

So since we discussed 1 million on messageboard the 1 million the price has now appeared.

 

Surley we won't sell for less than £5 million? ;-)

Plus add-ons.

I'll believe it when I see it, but if it were to happen it would be a fantastic piece of business.

2) Pay back Les' loan

3) Profit!

£1m for Marvin plus a future % sell on clause......where do we sign?

 

i'd love to keep him but a £950k profit for a year of inconsistency, I think that'd be an unbelievable RESULT!!!

 

Well done that man Baraclough!!

Earlier in the thread it was mentioned that teams in the EPL will receive an average in excess of £10m for every league game played next season. if that's true then even paying £1m could be a punt worth taking from their point of view. On his day Marvin can tear teams apart....the problem being consistency. I'm pretty sure his agent could put together a pretty good DVD making Marvin look like a worldbeater. Looking at the way Bournemouth like to play, Marvin could fit into their system fairly easily. And if it did not work out, I'm pretty sure he could easily find another club in the Championship or Div 1.

 

Smaller EPL clubs are willing to gamble relatively small sums in the hope of unearthing a gem. For instance, Mahrez only cost Leicester £400k and could be on his way to Man Utd for upwards of £20m.

 

To a degree it would be the same on us taking a £50k punt on an unknown from Kidderminster.

 

 

 

And if we were to get an offer remotely approaching £1m there really is no option but to accept it.

I was thinking Motherwell sources leaked the 'story' given its the Daily Mail.

 

i think the message has been clear since McGhee came in that we have an asset in Marvin who was in danger of going wayward. We must therefore look to maximise his value in the relative short term.

 

In the meantime Ainsworth is shunned to the side despite sharing similar weaknesses to Johnson.

I agree with parts of what you said but I think Johnson is a much better player tha ainsworth

Typical Ross-shire media trying to unsettle the opposition before a monumental lower/mid table clash.

McNamara knows all about fuds. So if even he doesnae fancy Straker? I struggle to remember a player with less understanding of the game. Andy Roddie perhaps.
