I think Faye might be considered more as back up. He's a frigging beast though, which is something we could probably do with against some teams.

Aye, I think we're going after him to add depth rather than anything else.

Like we did with Amdy.

 

 

:woosh:

 

On a serious note. That's another player(if he signs) that will miss a month or so with the African Nations :

 

Martins, Baba(no loss), Geremi(our freaking captain), Faye.

I've heard Giles Barnes mentioned as a replacement for Dyer and/or Solano.

 

I fucking hope so, really rate Barnes, he has shone in every one of the few Derby games I saw him play in last year.

 

Exercising caution, I remember about 8/9 years ago us being linked with an equally high-rated young player who was on Ipswich's books and everyone being excited at the prospect of him joining....

The only difference is if we sign Barnes we sell him on once fees of £25 million are being quoted :woosh:

True :woosh:

 

I know we all say "if only we'd flogged Dyer to Leeds for £20m" but can you honestly, hand on heart say that the money would have been wisely re-invested? I think it's fair to say that SBR wasn't the one handling the transfer deals <_<

No, but who's to say it wouldn't be wisely reinvested? We may have got a player who didn't spend half his career getting his legs rubbed off Derek Wright
