Jack Marriott signs for Derby (Merged)

That’s what I call a decent bit of evidence. Is there any more?

Brum based journo said he believes he's coming here, Posh paper reporting Bet Victor stopped the book on where Marriott is going due to a large amount of money going on him to join us. MacAnthony (Posh Chairman) responding to a tweet with rumoured price to us and not denying he was coming to us, just the price tag.

He's definitely signed for someone (said 'thanks' to Tyrone Mings in a tweet) and we're the only club that has been linked with any substance.

Basically, welcome to the greatest city in the world Jack   :thumbsup:

Think this one is done.

Not sure about that but it narrows it down a little!

I'm pretty excited about this one. Someone I watch on YouTube who makes Football Manager videos is a Posh fan, often speaks about the club, did their matchday announcing one time in fact. Always speaks so highly of Marriott, and from the stats and videos that have been posted here, he looks the part. Obviously there's risk in any deal but I'd love to see him in a City shirt.

Leeds interst has been whispered around the W Yorkshire media, no definite evidence that he hasn't signed for them.

If we have signed him then it's surely a replacement for Bobby.

To be honest - it’s a whole host of things, built up over time by series of posts and threads.

I believe there are people who are very unhappy with the way the club is run - fine.

I also believe there are people who look to scrutinise and criticise the club for every move made on and off the pitch - fine again - but sometimes you see inconsistencies in what people say as long as it suits their agenda.

And finally, i’m making the point (it was actually pretty tongue in cheek, but I appreciate it’s hard to see context/intention on the Internet, seeing the defensive reaction) that those who want the club to involve the fans more can see quite how divided we as bunch on are certain issues. 

Youre damned if you do, damned it you don’t. 

But NEVER once have I said people can’t have different opinions; so don’t know why that keeps being levelled at me. Anyone who has debated with me will know i’ll fiercely fight for my opinion, but I’m always open to others, even if I disagree because I appreciate football and BCFC mean different things to different people.  

Yeah that's fair enough. Tbh I was just responding to how I read that one particular post - meaning we can't group our supporters one minute and seperate them the next.

Just to be clear wasn't accusing you of not letting people have differenet opinions - it just seemed to conflict the point you were making - appreciate the context may have been lost!! But, yes agree, an opinion is one thing, and when it can be substantiated with reason then I think most will respect it even if they disagree - but working backwards from an agenda is dishonest and I agree it seems to happen all too often on here.

Also, I think the "moaner" v "happy clapper" situation creates a picture of fan division. I think these extremes are the minority tbh and most of us can see that the reality lies somewhere in the midde. I hope so anyway!

Seems this is what swayed the betting market, can't be a big market you'd think.

IF we're letting Taylor go, aren't we still a striker short once Bobby leaves?

Famara / Milan

Marriott / ?????

Hinds and McCoulsky aren't ready I assume?

I miss Sam Baldock in the same way I miss being in the same division as Swindon Town.

Meanwhile he’s been part of a promotion winning squad while we’ve done nothing. Would improve our team without a shadow of a doubt.

Is this the same Baldock who we sold after 4 games (during which he had failed to score a single goal) and we went on to secure promotion, storming the division and scoring 96 goals in the process?

The same Baldock whose highest ever total at Championship level is 11 goals, and who has scored the grand total of 18 league goals in the 4 seasons since he left AG?

We haven't ever missed Baldock one bit, an extremely over rated player who has had a very fortuitous career considering his mediocre talent.

I trust Marriott will be on a different level altogether to Baldock should he end up at AG.

We’ve been over it a million times and we’ll never agree on him. That’s cool. 

Chris Hughton knew better though.

No because he wouldn’t improve us. And I thought it went without saying that I meant promotion from the Championship!

Pascal Cygan won the Premier League, doesn't make him a world beater.

In the 2016/17 season he played 29 games and scored 5. 

For comparison, this year Matty Taylor played 22, largely off the bench too, and scored 3. 

Think I'd rather take my chances elsewhere to be honest. Much better value about.

FWIW I’m not saying we should bring him back. Simply that we’ve never had a direct replacement for him. If you ever watched him off the ball - which clearly few did - what he brings to his team is exceptional. 

Sidwell’s ‘firework’ goal vs ROD all started because of Baldock’s off the ball harrying. Taylor is the closest we’ve got to a direct replacement and as much as I like MT Baldock is the better player by far.

“Posh director of football Barry Fry delivered the news to the Peterborough Telegraph from the Football League chairman’s conference in Portugal.

He also gave the latest lowdown on the future of Posh striker Jack Marriott, suggesting the 33-goal striker could yet stay at the ABAX Stadium.

Bookmakers suspended betting on Marriott’s destination this week after receiving a flurry of wagers on Championship clubs Bristol City and Nottingham Forest, but Fry insists they have acted hastily. 

“Eight clubs are chasing Jack, but I still haven’t received a bid worthy of taking to the board of directors,” Fry said. 

“It’s not a problem. We are prepared to keep Jack if we don’t get a good enough offer. We are prepared to sell him, but not because we have to for financial reasons.”

Would be funny if that's true however one suspects no-one has told Bazza that the cat has been let out of the bag.

Mings (ex-Ipswich) and Ipswich physio tweets would suggest there's been a leak in Suffolk!

From the info/evidence already out there it would appear that Marriott has either signed or agreed a deal at least with one of the chasing clubs, if not more.

Barry Fry having always been a bit of a market trader has probably been told to keep it under wraps or is disappointed with the amount and trying to bring someone else in last minute to make a better offer.

Yeah, because Barry Fry has never been economical with the truth...

NB I have absolutely no evidence to contradict BF, just trust what he says less than the guy I bought my first car from (I had to scrap it after 18 months and £1200 of work to the clutch)

Barry Fry will want a bigger fee, because he gets a cut.

It's not unknown nowadays for clubs to allow players and agents to talk to clubs if they are looking to sale. There is every chance that we are in negotiations with Peterborough over a fee or deal, but we have already agreed terms with the player / players agent. Player has told his friends and so on, and it's just down to the clubs to iron out the best deal. So we may have effectively agreed terms with the player and it's a goer, but at present we haven't met a suitable valuation, which means one of three things will happen, we decline to increase our offer and walk away, in which case the player may hand in a transfer request, we meet Peterborough's demands, or there's still room for negotiation. Whatever happens unless it's a transfer record, which it very well could be, it's more than likely any agreement will go down as undisclosed.

IF it IS us, no doubt the fee will be 'undisclosed' allowing Posh to claim whatever deal they want. However, I can't believe we would smash our transfer record and not mention the fact that we had done so meaning it would be less than we paid for Fammy if it IS 'undisclosed'.

David May is always my go to guy for this argument.

Averages something like 10 games a season over 9 years at Utd, wins 2 Prem titles, 2 FA Cups and the Champions League.

Work smart, not hard people.

He won't see much defending like that in the Championship, as Matty found, but natural poachers are hard to come by so well worth signing.

I never saw Taylor as a poacher.  Thought he scored all different types of goals, scored in streaks and wasn’t clinical.  Always felt he’d swing a foot at one from 25 yards for us, and that would kick-start a streak.

19 hours ago, BobBobSuperBob said:

Agree

And would be my major concern

Interesting you compare him to Taylor as they are not dissimilar IMHO (but Marriot looks to me a more accomplished finisher)

But , he’s looked a poacher / scorer since he first appeared at Luton and plenty like him have carried on scoring as they rise soma difficult call 

 

So annoying that we could have picked him up for £200-300k max from Luton when we signed Hinds and Bakinson :grr:

At 4/5 million a far more difficult call !!!!

 

Marriott looks a far more composed finisher than Taylor, and looks to do his work inside the box.

Is he better than Matty Taylor ? 

 

We’ll see.  I’m certainly not his biggest fan, but his best two games for us were alongside Famara in the league cup, and therefore it would be hasty to let him go, should Bobby go.  I quite like the options of perming Diedhiou, Marriott and Taylor...with Djúric a different option.

Assuming Reid goes, any striker worth his salt is gonna fancy 6 games to prove his worth before Diedhiou returns.
