Paid over the odds for Johnson too.
Yeah good point. Also worth remembering that while we all agree that you ideally want your top target sometimes the 2nd, slightly cheaper, option works out super well. We were obviously put off a bit with Tapsoba’s asking price but we ended up getting the best defender who’s ever lived, VDV.

But seriously if he's available we have to get him. He makes everything look so easy. Would transform our attack

Sonny was second choice when we got him as well.

Sorry if I’m being stupid but what are people taking from that update? Sitting on our perch? As in waiting to see what others do for now before deciding what we’re going to do ourselves?

Watching how the situation with him develops over the summer I guess. We like him but aren’t moving for him currently however that could change if the right circumstances arise. Essentially watching on from afar in case.

But I could be way off.

I think he will come good eventually and will be worth the money in the end.
We always need someone to have an immediate impact as there is a lack of consistency.
I'm waiting for another season before I make judgement.

Id say you're spot on.

If no other serious bidders come in we'll make a move if we have a free run at it...to keep the price down as much as we can realistically expect

My post wasn’t a judgment of the player, merely the fee.

Hey humpty get off the wall!

Logically A judgement of the fee is based on the return received which is dependent on player performance.
If he had scored 50 goals then one would say that it was not expensive!

Im not sure the price will come down.

He reportedly has a release clause

Not sure what the point of that is. If they don’t get 60M they aren’t going to sell him. If we think he’s worth 60M (he is) we should offer it (we should) Worst case he says no and we can move on quickly

I would love him here but I’m struggling to see where he starts for us in the team?
Can he play RW? Or are we looking at him being son back up?
Or madders back up ?
I just can’t see it.

Have you been watching Maddison for the past 6 months?

Needs competition.
