I honestly can't see us getting more than £4m for him. The fact Watford apparently tested the water with just £2m suggests it'll end up being somewhere between £2-4m (probably £3m). He is significantly better than Cosgrove, and also McKenna, so we should be holding out for £3-4m with sell on clause and everything else you'd expect these days. The main thing counting against him is that he hasn't got a Scotland cap yet. If he hangs around for the rest of this season, scores double figures again, catches the eye in big games, and bags a Scotland cap, then we might be looking at £5m+

I don’t think not having a scotland cap makes much of a difference, he could get a cap against San Marino or shitty friendly against Cyprus wouldnt put his price tag up. With all the games he’s been excellent in I think it should be starting at at least 5 million. 
Watford were just taking the piss, you could see that with also the bid they put in for the boy at hibs.

Reynolds is a fine loon. One of the soundest cunts you’ll meet, and sure to make a great engineer.

Aye he moved to Dundee 2 or 3 years ago. Moved back to Kingswells to a house a stone’s throw from where he used to dwell. Will no doubt be looking at a career in the oil industry post football.

I'm sure he's studying a law degree. Seem to remember him saying that in an interview when he was playing with us.

There was a rumour that Watford were going to try again for Ferguson and if it wasn’t accepted, they would go for McGrath at St Mirren

Let’s be truthful here, Watford are trying to be penny pinching chancers and think teams in Scotland will sell for any price and be grateful for the pittance they offer. 

If I was Ferguson I’d get my head down like he seems to be doing and trying to attract the attention of better teams than Watford yo-yoing between EPL and championship

No rumours or hints that we're looking to bring anyone else in? or maybe everything's on hold until we know what's happening with Ferguson, the money from his sale would definitely help bring a couple of players in. Regardless, we really do need more backup, we're threadbare at the moment and between injuries and covid, we are only a couple of players out away from being a disaster. 

Cormack said at half-time last week they’re working on more deals.

That’s like going to a garage to buy a Ferrari but instead of wanting to pay 100 grand offering 25000 and coming away with a Fiat

Hearing rumours of Blackburn wanting Hedges, best business we could do just now is get him a new deal. Based on last year gee him 5/6k like the biggest earners as we’d miss him a lot!!

If they did want him what money would you accept? It's difficult with only 12 months left on his contract. I'd still be looking for around £1m in all honesty. He's the most creative player in the team and we have no-one that can replace him. Not even sure there's a player in Scotland you could replace him with. Mowbray would have his work cut out there that's for sure.

A million for Hedges wouldn't be such a bad outcome tbh. 

We could then offer Hibs the reported £500k min release fee for Boyle. Not exactly like for like but he'd surely bring us more goals over a season than Hedges would.

I honestly think there's a very good reason that the interest in Hedges is coming from Blackburn, as opposed to the likes of Burnley or even a top end Championship club. One footed players are ten a penny.......he just isn't absolutely top drawer and so I'm sure he is certainly replaceable with someone of similar quality. Mowbray must know of such players in the EFL

If we are getting offers close to a million for someone who can go for fuck all next summer, we need to take it.

I think weve done this one on the Ryan Hedges thread. £600k will do.

Glass has himself said that he highly doubts the squad as it stands will be the same one that finishes the season.

We have 4 weeks. Players will leave and players will come in.

You’d think McGeouch & Kennedy would be “available”.

There’s also a decent chance Fergie goes.

Potentially a large fee & about £8k-£9k per week in wages to play with if those three are away.

I think Ferguson will stay for one more year.

Both McGeouch and Kennedy are available as you say.

We need to get rid of the 'surplus' in the team. That's the likes of Kennedy and McGeouch, probably Ojo as well despite him impressing the management team. Cormack mentioned in the podcast with Spiers that our wage budget is higher already than last season.

We need to lose the dead weight to get players in who will improve the starting eleven.

Ojo, McGeouch, Campbell and Virtanen should all be getting a clean slate. I'm not sure we should automatically think its Campbell who should be at the front of that queue. I wonder if he'd benefit from a loan spell away

He probably would. Depending on those leaving permanently in August he may well go out. Would be good for him to play every week and get minutes under his belt. He's not going to be a starter yet if Ferguson and Brown are starting every week. 

Virtanen doesnt look like he's going to make it here. Best if he leaves to for his own sake. Although the majority of us have no idea what type of player he is.

If Hedges leaves we've basically got no pace in the entire team and we lose a large part of our creativity and excitement / entertainment value. If he can leave next year for nothing we would likely need to sell if we got offered a million. I could see him linking well with big JET as they are both very neat footballers. Hedges would not be easy to replace - outwith Rangers and Celtic, he's the best winger / attacking midfielder in the league. I'm actually surprised one of them haven't been sniffing about him.

That’ll come out in the press the Thursday before we play the huns as per usual.

Genuinely think our best chance of getting McGrath is if we offer them McLennan &/or Kennedy for free & continue paying their wages. Loan until end of contract basically but make it permanent on paper so they have chance to sell either if they want. 
 

Add a small fee if needed to make up to their realistic valuation. 
 

doubt they would go for basic loan as they have no sell on benefits if either somehow managed to attract interest.

 

Joking aside rgds their ability but maybe a club like St Mirren would work for them

 

edit, also the likes of McGeouch/Ojo

 

just as St Mirren who they want 🤣

I was more implying he’ll likely go for free or minimal fee in Jan rather than selling now.

True but it's so random he's like 5-6 years older than Ramsay.

One of the best players in the championship 2 seasons ago.

It's poor squad management we have him as the 7th or 8th centre mid. He's more than good enough to be 4th or 5th alllowing us to divert money to other positions

For his own good he needs to take a step backwards, maybe to take a step forwards, but at the very least to get a game most weeks.
