Chopra - £4m

Recommended Posts

According to one of the papers this morning, Man City and Everton are sniffing around him for £4m. Now I think they'd be making a mistake, but it's just typical Newcastle to lose someone one year and him have a £4m pricetag less than a year later. :lol:

No doubt we'll be buying him back for £10m+ in three or four years!

 

I haven't seen much of him this season but I have been impressed by the variety of goals he's scored as well as the quantity. I always expected him to knock them in from within the six yard box but I was surprised to see him hitting free kicks in too!

He was always a lad that everybody wanted to do well but i don't know if he got a fair crack of the whip - none of the management rated him enough to make him first choice but you never know - the doylies we've had in charge i wouldn't be surprised if he came to the premiership and got a shedload

I hope we've got some sort of sell-on clause.

 

Unlikely as we didn't sell him, he turned down a contract and left for Cardif. The fee we got was decided by a tribunal.

I wouldn't put it past Roeder to make a bid for him. :D

:lol: You know, I was thinking along those lines myself.

He might have a clause in his contract that allows him to talk to us.

A thread about Chopra, and nobody has mentioned how Ameobi was given more of a chance?

People mention it because its true, whether you rate him or not, and i didn't think he'd make it myself.

 

The fact is though, if the people who run this club knew what they were doing, when he still had a couple of years or more on his contract they have loaned him for a year to a championship side (instead of him festering away in the reserves and warming the bench), then if he bangs in a shitload we can sell him for decent fee as people will want him.

Erm, he did go out on loan, didn't he? :D

With the Ameobi/Chopra thing it's not even a case of positive discrimination either as surely due to the lack of Asians in the Premiership then Chopra would have been the one positively discriminated for.

Shola is a light year ahead of Chopra as a footballer at any level. Chopra probably strikes the ball better but I dont think he has the physical attributes or the pace to do much at premiership level. Thats not to say Shola is a world beater but he is a decent premiership player.

Whoever said it was? Just because Shola's black you think that could be a reason why he was picked over Chopra?

I know he went for a while, but not a whole year unless i've remembered wrong! I think if he'd had a whole season and reached the kind of goals tally he has at Cardiff then we could have been looking at a decent fee for him as people will always take a gamble on goalscorers, even if they've done it at a lower level.

I left out the safety smiley on purpose and you were the first person to be reeled in by it. :)
