Jack Marriott signs for Derby (Merged)

I’m with @JoeAman08 on this.  If I could get Marriott for £4m, great, if we’re talking £5m, £6m, now £7m, I would be passing.

No problem if it was £4m with £3m add-ons, e.g. £1m for 20 goals, £2m for promotion, that sort of thing.

There has got to be a point where you pull out of an auction, definitely where Peterborough are the auctioneer.

Fry won’t go along with that. He’s a grubby Second-hand car salesman, not a gullible buyer.

Calm down dear. 

Remember when you had a mare the other week and starting slinging shit in every direction? You had to tell yourself off and logged off for a few days. 

We wouldn't want a stroppy tantrum again.. Would we? :yawn:

You may well be right, but can you at least try to resist biting with the insults whenever anybody disagrees with you?

It leaves a sour taste every time.

Bob.

I’ve never argued with you.

And tbh, although I disagree with a lot of your output, I respect your right to say it. 

But, FFS, why do you want to start fights all the time?

TBH I have thought of putting you on ignore for that sole reason.

If you’re as informed and as intelligent as you claim/look to be why waste the time?

It demeans you. Either by indicating you know jack shit (which I don’t think is the case), or by indicating you’re a stroppy teen (which I’m sure isn’t the case)

Basically, calm the **** down. You’ll live longer, and might even enjoy it

Did it really take you 20 hours to come up with that? You’re losing your edge Robert.

Stop bitching FFS people please, you're better than this. If you want to carry on, do it via PM will you?

Normally, like most, I'm pretty laid back and enjoy a bit of banter but when I see a load of new posts on this thread, I hope to read that we've agreed a fee or something, not this drivel.

Thanks.

It’s a shame. And as much as like BBSB posts . It’s seems to be getting out of hand. And I have ****** up a few times.

More likely Barry Fry wanting Derby to get involved . A bidding war drives up the fee and Bazzer gets a bigger cut of a bigger fee.

Know someone who was involved with Matthew Etherington when he was at Posh. Spurs wanted him when he was 17 , but Fry wouldn't agree the deal because he knew that if he held on to him for another year or so the fee would then be much higher. 

I think we are talking to Peterborough regarding Marriott but if they or the player don’t want to know than don’t hang it out , if you look at the stats , goals per minute etc would be worth going for someone like Lewis  Grabban , from all accounts 5 million or less for a proven championship Goalscorer , maybe be 30 but few years left and that much needed experience

@BobBobSuperBob's not available by PM.

If he was I'd be advising him to stop rising to the bait, enlarge his ignore list asap, and confine his comments to BCFC matters where imo. he's a fine poster who makes a very valuable contribution to the forum.

Let's not forget we're all on here for one reason, and one reason only - to talk about BCFC -  so if there are personal clashes it's up to Bob, and others, to make full use of the ignore facility so we have less squabbling and can all concentrate on talking about City.

If he doesn't sign soon does that mean he is waiting to see if Derby step up? If that is the case let's move on, if we aren't his first choice then we don't want him.

Held face to face talks with our club representatives today, not been told how they've gone but I'm hopeful. He's interested.

But that's 5 Mil we will never see back plus 4.5mil in wages over a 3 yr contract.

We won't be entering into these types of scenarios anytime soon.

I’ve ignored plenty recently Nogs

But when the little possee gather , cackle and attack together I am happy to stand up for myself

Generally recently I’ve ignored it but give it out and sometimes they are going to get a reply

 

Personally I Thought the fact that some of the worst offenders can’t even support the forum that they want to police was somewhat ironic

some right sad little pot stirrers on here mind :laughcont: and some in particular who are very selective as to what or rather who , they make comment on , whilst numerous threads and content far worse or extreme go along without any comment from them 

Some that I didn’t highlight , that always pipe up , at least bother to support the forum with their subscriptions

Im going to leave this particular thread subject for now

I honestly don't know why contributers to OTIB get so involved personally, after all I'm pretty certain that BobBobSuperBob isn't even your real name .

My take on the possible transfer;

The bloke knows where the net is and could be an excellent signing but not at any price .

We want value from our signings and if those greedy fockers at Posh take it all then there isn't any.

The ridiculous fees being quoted for him would bring in much better quality than a L1 player who has had one outstanding season .

I just hope that we don't get sucked into the selling club's little game wanting to show the world how great we are at negociating by unveiling this player at 5 or 6 million with the inevitable add ons .

 I won't count on it though .

He scores goals, and goalscorers will always cost a premium. Reminds me of a Pitman that can run. Think he's well worth it personally, with the obvious caveat that I'm not paying anything towards it. 

Yep. People obsessing at the fee but times have changed. 

If a proven Champ striker is £10-15m then £5-6m for the best of the next tier feels about right if you think he has the capacity to step up the level. 

Given that Posh fans rate him higher than Gayle and Assombalonga I’d say that money sounds like it’s not bad in context of the market and the individual.

He might be particularly interested to see how  our strikers in recent seasons have fared.

Kodjia did well and moved on to Villa for big money. Tammy, although not our player, did very well in his season here and moved on to the prem and now one of our own players has moved to the prem for big money after a stellar season. He might think that to further his career as a striker we are a good choice.

This!

Some people still get a sweat on when we start talking 7 figures. Indeed times have changed, and the Championship as we all know is a brutal division. Unfortunately if you don't dig deep then you'll be back to L1 in the blink of an eye. Yes you can pick up the odd bargain now and again (Kodjia) but they are rare, but most of the time if you want any sort of quality you have to pay for it!

Look at Forest at the moment, going completely crazy with their spending. Will FFP come into it? That's another team that will probably push us down a notch, then someone else spends big, and we go down another notch, and suddenly the L1 trap door is in sight again. I'm not saying we go mad ourselves but we have to at least compete.

Funny enough, thought the same.  Think it’s his running style, albeit a bit quicker.  Quickness of the brain and feet is the key though.

Wasnt it Mickey Quinn who said he was the quickest player over 1 yard in the 1st Division?

I was gonna say that I still think £5-6m is too much for a League One player and then saw this?5CAB7A3C-7779-48AE-BACF-29254A62C210.thumb.jpeg.89d6e88665917ac8a977da8dc3650243.jpeg

 

Maybe that’s the going rate really.  Still seems a lot, but hey-ho.

Hold your own where you feel strongly on City related matters by all means - most of us try to - but the rest is a complete waste of time and energy.

There are clearly a couple of posters who would like nothing better than to see you ejected from the forum and continually attempt to rile you to that end.

It seems to me you're going to give them the satisfaction of succeeding unless you stop rising to the bait.

When you're getting angry/frustrated with a poster you feel is baiting you make your first thought to be to hit the ignore button rather than replying, and you'll find the forum a relaxing and pleasant place to visit rather than stressful.

Your 'likes' total indicates most posters really appreciate your BCFC input so just stick to that if i were you and literally ignore the rest - don't allow needless squabbling to overshadow your otherwise very positive contribution.

If we’ve got 10m for Bobby and spend 5-6 on Marriot I think that’s fair enough. It sounds a lot but at the end of the day it’s the going rate now a days and still leaves us with a tidy profit.

which we can piss away on some untested overseas players who will end up on loan...;)

If you’re including me in that, I’m absolutely not. Read my posts and you’ll see that I’ve only ever tried to rein in the belittling comments about other posters Bob sometimes makes. He acknowledged at the time of his ban that he should try to calm down. I’ve always praised the general content of his otherwise excellent posts and tried to make balanced comments about him. Clearly that doesn’t work in his eyes or yours presumably. How am I attempting to rile him by asking him not to insult other people?

To my knowledge I’ve never insulted him, as far as I can remember.
