Benrahma ended up going to West Ham on a loan basis, I believe. No doubt there was a loan fee & if all goes well a full transfer will no doubt be arranged at the end of the season. Even so, they can't be short of cash, so what are we thinking; £3 million each or £5 million for the pair?Brentford can't be short of cash with the Ollie money, how much did they get for Benrahma?
Peak value for ECFC could be summer 2021 then especially if we are in league 1 next season.I believe both have 18 months left then its a tribunal fee. I hope they sign new deals but expect their agents are advising them against it.
George was bought by Middlesbrough for £100k but from Doncaster not Wolves. It was at Donny that George started to progress again after being released by Wolves.I also see similarities between Key and Friend but remember that although Friend went to Wolves at age 21 he didn't feature much at all and was loaned out to various clubs (including us!) before being sold (for just 100k) to Middlesborough where his career took off. Similar story with Grimes, he had to step back before he stepped up, although he did end up at the club we sold him to.
Me too. Randall in particular is so good with the ball at his feet especially in and around the edge of the box he just seems to be able to shift the ball around with such quality!I have been incredibly impressed by the technical skill of the ex academy players, their maturity and also their commitment / workrate.
That would be because he is right footed. His left foot is so good though it can be hard to tell. I only worked it by seeing him take corners in the u23's. It gives him a big advantage of being able to go both ways.For a left footer, the ball he played across the box with the outside of his right for one of Bowman's goals was sublime.
