How much did city sign him for, if a big fee should be a no brainer as an exceptional talent?

 

Him signing recently means very little imo, big teams often sign young players then loan them out. 

 

Up here makes sense if it's for the culture and language and not to be far from his base in England as the championship is now closed. 

 

Going abroad gives him game time but nothing else. 

 

A Japanese player in maroon must happen now, i want to see it. 

Me too! Something quite cool and exciting about it.

you would have to imagine if he comes in along with Whelan then also with Damour then that's the three starting midfielders.What about project Clare?Anyway,i seem to be alone here when i say i don't want a tie in with any club in order to be an academy for their talent.I don't mind the random loan system which allows us to look around but not this.It just doesn't sit right with me for some reason.This young man will not know what has hit him when he comes up against opponents in our league.Will he be good or bad for the likes of Mcdonald and Connor smith?Raise their game or push them out the picture?Not all positive about this i have to say

It depends on which team. If it’s Man City then it’s a no brainer. They have two starting 11s who could win the premier league. If we are looking to loan any player outwith that- say from 23-44 then they will still be incredible. Patrick Roberts at Celtic was brilliant and he was probably at the #30 on the list of a much weaker squad at city.

We'll see a lot of Japanese fans at games as well.

One of the lads I know runs the JSoccer magazine. I've asked him for the lowdown on this guy as he's a fountain of knowledge in relation to Japanese players.

 

I'm (overly?) excited at this potential signing.

I see what you mean and hope he is good. 

 

However it's worth bearing in mind that Patrick Roberts played for Celtic at the time and not us :) It's easier as a loan player to settle into a winning team

True, but he was still a stand out every time I saw him.

Celtic have had a few great players from City, Hibs have had two average wingers from them and Smith-Brown wasn’t up to much. It’s still a bit hit and miss to be honest.

Yeah I agree. If we make a good case for us being a good place to develop players we could be trusted with the better ones that would usually be reserved for Celtic/championship/lower prem teams though. 

 

FWIW I think Brandon Barker was a Good player. He always causes trouble and was a bit of an old school winger which we’ve lacked for a while.

We will see how he gets on at Rangers, didn’t do much against us which is how I usually rate a player.

Yep.

Apparently Forest want some money for him. I don’t know if CL would have him though.

He’d be the final piece of the jigsaw for me.

They can either train on the Tynecastle pitch or the community pitches just outside which they sometimes do, where the old ticket office used to be near the wheatfield.

We definitely need another striker and he may be a good cheap option.

I spoke with Cummings outside my mates wedding about a month back. 

 

He would jump at the chance to play for us but we point blank aren’t interested.

He’s made it known to Nottingham, Hearts and his agent he wants to sign for us. CL is having none of it.

Cummings would be a risky signing. Scored goals in the Championship for them but struggled since heading down south. 
 

If he were a free transfer, I’d take him. I’m not 100% that we should part with a sizeable fee for him. I don’t think we can afford that kind of gamble.

Whelan? FOH funding going to paying Budge for shares at the moment. No FOH funded anything for now.

Seems strange that Forest would be looking for a fee for him. He will almost certainly be going somewhere with lower wages. I would have thought it is more likely Forest will have to pay him off. May be a negotiating ploy to try and convince the recieving team to contribute more to the overall deal. I guess it could be a couple of hundred thousand fee, allowing the club to sign him on lower wages for a multi-year contract, with Forest using the transfer fee to contribute to paying the difference in his wages for this season.

 

If it is money that is the issue, then it might well go to the end of the window. Forest likely to be easier to deal with when faced with having him hanging around until January minimum, with no real prospect of a fee in January either given his contract runs until next summer. But sounds from others like the issue might be that Hearts just don't want him.

 

For what it's worth, I'd take him. I think a finisher/ poacher is the final signing we need to make this window.

No Forest want him off books wont cost much if anything.  He is desperate for a deal up here so wages not a problem.

Cummings is going to end up at Hibs as he wants back to Edinburgh. He’s desperate to sign for us but Craig doesn’t want him.
