    Alan Nixon on twitter (usually more reliable than most on twitter, but that isn't saying much!) has suggested a couple of times that we are one of the teams in for Solanke on loan.

    Something came up which stopped the deal happening with Palace. At the time I thought Liverpool were potentially inserting a minimum game time clause and that's why Palace pulled out but who knows.

    From the admittedly little I've seen of Solanke, he is pretty poor.

    Just another Jerome Sinclair. Has credit because of the U20 World Cup thing and the laughable England cap he earned by joining Liverpool. But as you said, has looked out of his depth anytime I've seen him in the EPL™.

    Never heard of him, but if he's good enough for Liverpool, Chelsea and England, he must be decent

    Hmm, I'm going to buck the trend here, from the few games I've seen of him, he looks an ideal Prem league player. Tall, relatively strong, can dribble, pick a pass and looks technically gifted. However, he doesn't have enough 1st team experience at any level to demonstrate he'd be an instant hit. Fairly pointless if he's a 'work in progress' to have him short term.

    Surely Origi is better?

  9. He was reported in Sunday's press to have said that he prefers Palace over Watford or Rangers.

    On that basis, I hope Gino tells him to bugger off.

    Better still, make him a fantastic offer, keep him warm, and then drop him at 10pm on deadline day.

  16. Maybe they soon expect to be playing in a second rate league?

    It’s because Callum Wilson is wanted by Chelsea and he is trying to force a move. He doesn’t want to be at Bournemouth anymore and doesn’t want this opportunity to pass by. If Bournemouth continue to get in his way, he will hand in a transfer request to force the move through.

    Tammy Abraham seems much better value to me for what is likely to be similar money. Solanke literally has no pedigree in senior football yet.

    Yes would much prefer Abraham at their prices.

    The Telegraph reporting it's £19m plus add ons

    Yeah we're never paying that for that level of unknown. But will probably do well at Bournemouth.
  22. Maybe, maybe not. I seem to remember that they pipped us to the signature of Juan Iturbe - a loan deal with the option of signing permanently at the end for a similar fee.

    They dumped him after two games.

    If it means Wilson can't dive/score against us again then this is fantastic news

    Be even worse at Chelsea...as they will attack more and get decisions going their way.

    Confirmed by Bournemouth!

    Cannot believe they have spent £19m+ on him

    Ah cute cuddly little Muff, battling the odds, tiny ground with no money, getting by on a wing and a prayer. All that is good about football.

    Shows what you have to pay to buy an unproven player who has the words "English" and "Striker" on his CV.

    Lots of great comments on the bbc website including;
    "My old Ford Mondeo’s on its way out. We Buy Any Car offered me £300 for it, but I want £40,000 for it. Might give Eddie Howe a call."

    Isn't he simply Jordon on the back of his shirt?

    Sure sign of a top, top player.

    Just heard that Howe is weighing up a bid for Arthur Scargill.

    This is mind boggling. Liverpool paid £3m for him at tribunal 18 months ago, he's since made 7 starts and a whole bunch of timewasting sub appearances, managing just one goal for them and now Bournemouth have snapped him up for £19m plus add ons. Madness.

    Severe downgrade for Muff.

    Highly rated but price appears ridiculous. Bournemouth won't be going down this year so guess there is little risk at this stage

    Would prefer Origi or Abraham if we are going splash out for a striker this window. Okaka going has got me excited. OR Fast-track Wilmot at CB, get in another midfielder (Denis Suarez) and push him up front...problem solved.
