Gallagher 00:29 - Jan 29 with 5932 viewsPimsNumber1

According to the Sun we are offering nearly 2m and a 3 year contract to yhis old crock.
We must be desperate and I know we are but this is madness .Try the Iraq striker but this bloke is crazy money and if we go up we are stuck with him for 2.5 years

Duh - Think we are fast becoming past desperate!

It difficult with players you never how things will turn out and how they will fit- Who is glad we didn't get Simms now?

I am more optimistic about getting our Iranian Womble - Like what I am seeing about him and potentially becoming a crowd favorite.

Al-Hamadi has elements of Sinclair Armstrong about him and is still on 21 himself, presumably gets decent coaching and grounding with some international football too so it's an interesting one

I'm not sure I would be happy with him only but he definitely looks an exciting prospect to learn alongside a more experienced team mate?

Alcohol is the answer but I can't remember the question!

2m is relatively peanuts. We were paying 2.5m for Stewart TWENTY THREE YEARS AGO.

Only seen a limited sample of clips but his pressing and ball winning excites me, he also looks intelligent and cool headed with his choice of passing and shots. Some players stand out as too good and I would love to see him live.

The Womble fans absolutely love him from the comments I have read but most seem to believe he is too good for the league - big step up but some achieve it and I really feel optimistic about this one.

Indeed, and our desperation will increase the price substantially. The obviousness of our desperation has been signposted by getting rid of Ladapo, which surely was not the right call at the time, without a replacement lined up. I'm very sanguine about losing Ladapo once someone is through the door, but this way round just creates a ransom position for selling clubs.

You are right re Simms. Whilst Kieran can get a tune out of less than obvious players, as long as they fit his system correctly (and he is clearly the best judge of that point), Simms has been an expensive flop at Coventry given what they would reasonably have been expecting. Hirst has been more effective and was a fraction of the cost.

So let's cross our fingers we can unearth another bargain. The Womble is a fascinating target. He's Iraqi rather than Iranian, mind, just as a minor point of order.

I'm less excited by Gallagher personally, but (a) in Kieran we trust, and (b) we're desperate in that department!

What do you really know about football, and Gallagher?

Posts like this are frankly immature and stupid.

I, like any sensible supporter of ITFC trust McKenna and his management team.

If it didn't pee me off so much, I would and should ignore a post like yours.

Sam Gallagher for £2M ? Yes please. Same type as Hirst, but with bag loads of experience. Hirst will learn a hell of a lot off of him if nothing else. Gallagher is an experienced Championship forward, which is exactly what we need right now.

I suspect the fee has been inflated by the Sun. Remember when they said Evans had offered Lambert a huge war chest to keep us up and we signed Colin Quaner, an injured Will Keane and a equally injured Alan Judge.

If you consider how much we are quoted for inexperienced prem loans per season the £2m for an experienced championship striker, one presumably with a back log of demonstrated performances, it’s a know quantity. If he fits the mould then he must be reasonable value.

Did I expect to be quoted that value for a player that has not been prolific, probably not but attributes rule these days not only goals.

It’s a bit like Ellis Simms at £8.5m.

He cost nowhere like that much, but with add ons it could reach that sum.

I expect Gallagher is circa £1M with the rest of the fee related to promotion and games played.

They want his wages off their books too, otherwise they would have triggered his 12 month extension

Hardly a crock ths is his first Yr with a injury keeping him out for a sustained period. As for goals over half the matches Blackburn have played him as a winger.
He will do well as he is a team player works his nuts off hopefully we get both much needed. Experience and potential.

If he's fit and over his injuries then what we're spending on him is reasonable and it should be good business to get him in and alternate with Al Hamadi who looks to be quite an exciting signing.

He's about as close as we're likely to get to a like for like replacement for Hirst, he's big, mobile, works hard. And he's proven at this level over several years. He's 28 which in football today is not exactly over the hill. If we get him for £2m or less then that's a good bit of business, imo. We aren't going to find better. If we also get Al-Hamadi as another option and more of a development project then all the better. So few dry nights on TWTD these days. Anyone would think we were second bottom of the Championship, not second top.

It's the 97th of January, we're all fed up, and here comes Phil to pile in with some more doom and gloom.

To be more cheerful, I think there's more chance of it happening now than there was a couple of days ago.
