Bamford to Middlesbrough

Recommended Posts

I read this morning that Patrick Bamford is meant to be joining Middlesbrough for £10,000,000!

TEN MILLION POUNDS?!!!!

FOR PATRICK BAMFORD?

HAS THE WORLD GONE MAD!!!!?!!????

Now, don''t get me wrong - I didn''t mind him as a player, there may be some talent there that Karanka can ''activate'' but £10 million for a 23/24 year whose barely played in 2-odd years is mental!

Are Middlesbrough basing their player valuations on the Chinese market?! Jeez!

Under this logic, me, as a 49 year old, after two cruciate ligament ops, should still be worth about 2 million.

Nah you guys are reading it wrong, that figure is clearly 10 thousandy hundred.

To be fair, it''s said to be £6m upfront which isn''t bad in the current market for a young promising British player.

Correct me if I''m wrong, but I do believe he hasn''t scored a league goal since 2015!

I don''t believe he has ever played first team football for Chelsea and they reap £10m.

Is this a first?

They''ve also had loan fees from the likes of us and his wages paid for a lot of the time as well.

In true Alex Neil style his costly loan spell at Carrow Road was characterised by a bit of in out, in out until he hardly kicked a ball in anger for us.

He showed glimpses of class , but never had the opportunity to thrive.

More waste.

Re: Incoming players - Rumour mill

Patrick has a huge amount to offer.

I have great sympathy with him and his difficulties in fitting in with the football environment.

He has made mistakes and could perhaps have compromised more - without changing himself and who he is - though I would argue that his (relative) failure to justify his talent is a salutary example of much of what is wrong with the current English football system and environment.

Patrick Bamford would have been (and may yet be) a great success in another country or - I genuinely hope - with a different British club.

Parma

Parma[/quote]Do you genuinely think he''s worth 10 million smackers though?

[quote user="Parma Hams gone mouldy"]I think it''s a good time for Chelsea to look like powerful negotiators and for Middlesboro to look ambitious....
