Adam Webster - Now signed

Recommended Posts

Pete O'Rourke saying we want Webster from Ipswich as Flint's replacement.

Wanted a quality leader not another young lad - we're never going to progress properly and stop throwing away stupid leads if we don't have some experienced heads. No thank you.

Best one I can think of to replace Flint. Better than that Clarke from Pompey from what I’ve seen, plus already proven in the Championship.

Massively rated by Ipswich fans.

Just been saying on Clarke thread. A top talent. Only 23, but experienced enough at this level. The ball playing defender we need, but also very tall and good in the air.

An improvement on flint. Should cost more as well (he won’t because of stuff)

What stuff? A clause in his contract? a bad egg? Ipswich desperate for cash? enlighten us please

Why would he come here? We couldn't even guarantee him first team football which he's getting at Ipswich 

he would be our best centre back if he came here

ipswich have another year option so effectively a two year contract. Would be happy if we paid for him whatever we get from Flint deal

He would be in competition with the club captain. Unless he was given cast iron guarantees, why would he come? And if he was, what would be do with the captain? Bench?

Yeah I'm also wondering if they will even replace Flinty. 

We have Baker and Wright as first choice CB pairing. Vyner and Kelly as cover along with Hegeler. If Bryan leaves maybe someone who is a specialist LB but can cover LCB would be all we want?

Better than Wright and Baker so hope he comes and strengthens us hugely.

Would hope Johnson picks strongest team.  Not sure any players get cast iron guarantees of a starting place

I'd personally have Webster and Wright. Baker made a number of mistakes second half of season. I think Wright is very underrated by many of our fans. We'd be very weak if we don't replace flint imo. Kelly not ready centrally and will surely be left back next season, no guarantees Vyner is ready as he looked a bit weak physically for Plymouth against scunny. Hegeler clearly dodgy.

I agree and expect us to sign an upcoming player from L1. Jordan Willis being one we are monitoring, for example.

Namely a year left on his contract. 

They will want £15m.......

Having only 12 months left on his contract makes NO difference..........

Check out the thread re Bobby for proof of that.......

£15 million I think is ludicrous when I’ve seen others suggest they’d let him go for £3-4 million.

He’s also whilst played a lot of games suffered an injury at the end of last season. Injury prone I don’t know?

I think it would be reasonable that we’d pay similar that of the price we sold Flint.

Pretty sure he can play RB too, with Pisano’s availability record he and Wright might well both be accommodated..

I was being ironic fella - referring to those that believe  WE will get £15m for a player in his last year.

I got in contact with an Ipswich fan and he said he’s a good CB and good at playing out from the back. He wasn’t as good last season because McCarthys style of play is hoofing it long. But he only rated him at 2.5 mill

Sky transfers reporting £5m fee agreed with Ipswich and believe he is in Bristol for a medical. 

High fee. But defensively he seems an upgrade on Flint. Obviously he doesn't score goals but he seems a very competent defender.

Ipswich fans seem to really rate him WHEN FIT which is a bit worrying.

Yep. Baker is top class...WHEN FIT. Having two top class defenders would be a coup for us. Perhaps we have to risk things like this for quality and perhaps why we have got a different medical team in?

Ipswich reckons he should be gone for more than £5m and a possibility of being worth a fair bit more in the future.

I know there has been a bit of a meltdown over Flint and Bobby but I think Webster is a very good player, with championship experience and should we get Marriot as a replacement for Bobby thats not bad business either.

So if £5m is to be believed then £17m in for Reid and Flint, £11.5m potentially on Webster and Marriott. 

Seems a lot but possibly saving on wages which too which would be the bigger deal. Just read on their forum someone else reporting fee is 2m which sounds a bit better. Think 3-4m would be fair and about right though it seems they rate him and think he could be a 10-15m prem target if he stays fit

Friend of a a friend is an Ipswich ST holder and he said anything over £2.5m and they would be absolutely laughing.  Just one persons persepctive but at least it’s valid!

Indeed, like I say just one persons opinion but at least he watches him every week. I know very little to nothing apart from what people have posted here previously but positives have to be age and experience. Downfall seems to be injuries but here is hoping he can get over that.

Well there you go negative posters. A top championship centre back. Unless he only looks quality when I happen to have watched him, this guy looks a top talent and no where near the general peak age of a centre back.

Can't say I know much about him either tbh. The Injury thing is a bit of a worry given that we already have Baker who is the same.

I think if this goes through it shows where we are and is a statement, yes we are probably still below Middlesbrough but to then nip in and take an asset from Ipswich who are an established Championship side means we are heading in the right direction.

Hopefully as he is still young the injuries can be attributed to ‘growing up’ especially given his CB position.

Honestly didn't expect this to happen but pretty pleased with it I suppose.

However people claiming it's an upgrade on AF need to give their head a collective wobble. Flint is superb. He might one day be better than Flint, but right now, no.

So back to the real question, whose Lee dropping so Wright stays in the team as captain :fear:

The more time goes on the more stupid a decision that looks. Saying nothing about Wright's credentials to be captain, why give him that role if he's not even gonna play?????

Wilbraham wasn't a regular player but was club captain before, we had the likes of Smith and Pack to take the armband on the pitch so you don't need your official captain in the starting XI.

It just doesn't make sense when from the outside looking in, KS was captain material in the fullest sense of the word. 

Whatever, LJ knows his players.
