Toney has joined Brentford 09:54 - Aug 31 with 1266 viewsdavblue

Good signing that, and a team in our league that’s lost a good player.

Not sure that matters in terms of us as we won’t be anywhere near challenging with Lambert in charge.

He'll go for £20m next summer.

Does that give us a better indication of Downes’ value? £3-4m. Love them or loathe Peterborough, they know their strikers and invariably get excellent mark ups on their investments.

Poll: Where are we going to finish?

I was thinking about that earlier.

In theory you would think 5 or 6million would be a fair price being as strikers go for more money. But I’m not sure we would get that. Have to get add ons included and what it shows is Palace are trying it on at 2 million, there’s not an 8 million pound difference between the 2 players.

Need to factor in Newcastle’s share as well as the fee will be almost all profit.

They've replaced him with Clarke-Harris though, who had a one-in-two record for a much less creative team. Imagine what we'd be capable of if we operated with an iota of the clarity and vision Peterborough show.

The highest fee paid in L1 for a midfielder was Dele Ali to Spurs from MK dons for £5M and I think Delph went for something like 4.5M. Downes is good but not sure he's as good as those 2 are. £4M seems about right if you look at it that way especially as he's not a Grealish or Maddison either.

That was 5 years ago. Have you seen the Premier player price inflation since?

The rumour is the whole of Brentford's BMW forward line is being sold.

I have but do you really think anyone is going to buy a defensive midfielder from a L1 club for more than £5M.

We have:

Murphy sold - Leon best comes in.
Jackson/Norwood to go - Hawkins comes in.

Oh see what you mean!!

'Defensive midfielder' doesn't do Downes justice I don't think.

It doesn't and he's a better player than that but he's not a Grealish or Maddison, we won't see him skipping past players and bending them in from 25yards over the wall, he does a lot of the hard work and box to box stuff ( he should have a lot more goals than he does and he's got the ability to score as well ). We have to admit he's not going to get the fee we think he should as he's not a glory player or one of those who's going to score 15+ and create many many more and they sadly get the money.

No absolutely not, but he doesn't have to be a Maddison or Grealish to command a decent fee. He's probably not the kind of player that everyone would want, but the right team could see him a making a big difference to them, and so could be worth a lot to the right buyer.

What do you think is his perceived worth and his actual worth at this stage?

Perhaps not but if he'd come here he'd have immediately been our front-line centre forward, no sweat.

Bit sad this transfer. More because of Brentford being light years ahead of us. Even After landslide down the table and losing in the playoff semi ourselves our business the following year wasn't as good as this

I think he's worth between 7-8M and I think we'll accept between 4-5M, we can rightly laugh at Palace offering only 2M, they clearly think we need to sell when we don't.
