    Let's get Jarrod bowen

    Everybody seems to think Bowen is a striker, but isn't he an attacking midfielder? So people are just picking potential signings off the top scorers list now

    Completely different position!

    Farke getting off lightly

    Adam Webster has a very rare ability for any player, yet alone a centre back, he is ambidextrous (or either footed). Of course a ball playing centre back who can use either foot is worth money. Buendia, and I loathe to say this on here fearing backlash, is not as good as James Maddison. Maddison has that sudden change of pace to get away from players, is a bigger goal threat, can dictate the tempo of the game, and benefits from the homegrown player premium. We won't see a player as good as him at Carrow Road for another generation, maybe two, the legacy he will eventually leave in the game and the trophy's he will win will show that. Buendia will interest teams like West Ham and Aston Villa if they stay up. That's the reality, we are nowhere near as good as people on here seem to think, probably because they don't watch enough Premier League football to see that every team in this league is capable of beautiful football... Even Newcastle under Bruce. Norwich fans talk about us like we're Brendan Rodgers era Swansea, when we're rooted to the bottom of the table and look shocking as often as we look impressive. I remember when Leitner was going to run things! Truth is that a lot of our mature players have been found out at this level, in the case of our youngsters a few of them look a lot further away than we thought. Pure pace not enough for Godfrey up here, when was his last MOTM performance? At £30m+ some of you are definitely over valuing our players. I honestly think it's only the two full backs who will see serious interest at the moment and offers we may not be able to refuse. Still don't think it will be £30m a piece though!

    You say that the market will inflate, but will it really? Several clubs in this league now walking a FFP tightrope including Everton and presumably Villa, may find that its an austere summer. Those are two clubs who look to overspend on players, Mings and Sigurdsson fees ridiculous, but they won't be doing that this summer else as they have made heavy losses. Chelsea will be throwing money around because they've been under embargo, but with Tomori at centre back, and Reece James at right back, that's Godfrey and Aarons that they already don't need. Spurs need a right back, so Aarons a possible, but are hardly going to fancy Cantwell as an Erikson replacement haha. Realistically if Brighton were to sell Lewis Dunk for £50m they'd be looking to spend a fraction of that on a replacement, but having signed Matt Clarke for £5m and then loaning him straight out, perhaps they already have that replacement?

    Sure, but the price for 'potential' in the case of Daniel James was £15m. For Ryan Sessegnon it was £25m. For James Maddison it was £23m. But for some reason everybody is saying all of our young players are worth £30m a piece, when that seems to actually be above the current range when applying the domestic player premium. Market seems to give something more like a range of £10m to £25m for young English players with potential, I don't understand where this £30m figure has come from that people keep banding about, feels very optimistic to me, we saying our youngsters are so good that they will raise the threshold of the entire market? There are other young talents who don't play for Norwich for the big teams to fight over, they aren't exclusive to us, that Aaron Connolly looks the business, and Aaron Ramsdale at Bournemouth, Eze at QPR and McNeil at Burnley. I think some fans are going to end up a bit disappointed by some of the transfer fees, the upfront money in particular, I expect to see transfer fees which come packed with clauses and sell on percentages. They may go on and succeed like Maddison, but they could end up back in the Championship like the Murphy's. The other day somebody said £40m a piece for the three defenders, yet Harry Maguire had two years of regular England caps and three full years of Premier League football to realise £55m. Out of the young bunch the one who is closest to being 'ready' for the XI of a stronger team at this level is actually currently on our bench, Jamal Lewis by far the most consistent... is Ryan Bertrand any better, for example? Max Aarons perhaps the most valuable as he's a year or two behind the rest. I'd expect a Cantwell fee to be something more like £15m + add ons, he's good but he's just not at the level of a James Maddison.

    Signing the injury prone Drmic hasn't helped us much. I've said this before, if you knowingly sign injury prone players to try and save money you can't then consider yourself "unlucky" when you have a lot of players out injured. Byram is one such gamble which looks to be paying off though.
  7. Don't see any reason why we'd need to lose Trybull, he's a handy squad player and in the second tier can play a couple of roles.
  8. Every player has always had their price.

    Never really rated him, first touch is shocking. Chipped in with a few important goals last season, and worked his socks off, but he hasn't got much finesse has he and his work rate has dropped this season.

    Philipp Lahm could play inverted left back, right back, defensive midfield, and right wing. His nickname was the "magic dwarf", which is a bit ironic as I've just noticed your username, he won 113 caps for Germany, Champions League winner, and World Cup winner and World Club Cup winner. Perhaps versatility is something they try to harness in Germany? In England there seems to be a belief that if a young player doesn't play consistently in the same position they become a jack of all trades and master of none. But he would be the best example, and literally was a World beater at both club and international level.

    What overseas CBs do you know of who would be available in January?

    Chris Sutton came through as a centre back, went on to become the most expensive player in Britain football history and a Premier League winner as a striker, and then often played in centre midfield for Celtic towards the end of his career where he could split a defence open to feed Larsson. Could then wake up the morning after the game and go and hit a century on the cricket field.

    Not lacking in termsn of numbers but this bloke could be an upgrade in quality? We will see.

    Or we could sign a homegrown centre back. Or send Ralf back, sign a domestic keeper and a foreign centre back.
