Knighty

Albert Adomah Signs For Forest (Merged)

Recommended Posts

Surely signing Albert would go against everything that we're working towards. 

And he'd miss out on his last chance of being in a Premier league squad.

And his wages must be high.

Great rumour apart from that though!

There was two.  Chris Martin and David Stockdale. He was adamant on both. Sad attention seeker. Might as well lock thread.

Like Oneil was against our strategy?

Sometimes you need that bit if experience and know how in the team. Albert would be welcomed back by the fans and to be honest he has been in a few promotion winning sides. A 2 year contract should suffice and hopefully some of his magic can run off on our team and get us promoted

Isn't O'Neil a cautionary tale about why older players carry extra risk?

I can actually see this one happening, if it’s a Free Transfer.

AA nearly re-joined is a couple of years ago and still has a house in Bristol

Stranger things have happened and I for one, would like to see him back, especially with COD in his way

Genuine question - why are we waiting two weeks if you're so certain? Things happen very quickly in football and I can't see why anything would be concrete now if it was to be announced in two weeks. Villa also got promoted two days ago, I'd be shocked if they would have communicated their plans to Adomah already; he started in the PO final which makes it even more strange.

Players get told way before it goes public. Remember Pisanos tweets. I can see this happening if Albert is willing to fit in with our wage structure. 2 year deal on sensible wages. The guy is quality on and off the pitch. Would be a great signing!!!!

Im calling bullshit. Nowhere near the player he was and we’re looking to progress. 

I was told start of the season he wanted to come back but LJ didn’t want him. Don’t know if there’s any truth in that either.

Yeah but the discussions would not have been ongoing before the play-off final. Villa wouldn't have allowed the player to be distracted given that he is a starter. Given that all club employees were probably celebrating the win late on Monday and into Tuesday, negotiations would've got very far. Albert wouldn't have been told where he sits at Villa next season so he will be waiting to sit down with them later this week/early next week. Like I said, I'm very sceptical and I hope I'm right as he's not really what I need in my opinion.

Don’t think Knighty is bad. In January he said we were looking at a player up north who wanted to move back south. We signed Kasey Palmer. Think he had a few others close to the mark too. 

As for Albert, I am reluctant to think we would sign him. However there are plenty of reasons why it could happen. He is out of contract so no fee and he therefore would be earning nothing. He loves it here and knows the fanbase loves him. Seems sensible enough not to expect 30k a week here. As a club we are not against signing experience for low fees or frees for a couple seasons.

It is probably as likely a free signing we could make and would easily soften the blow of losing COD. Meaning his fee in its whole can be used elsewhere.

I thought Kightly had a strong record. Isn’t he the chap close to an analyst? I wouldnt write this off, although I wouldn’t want us after Albert. He doesn’t suit our current system... not against LJ to have different systems in mind, a change in primary for the next season or clubs in bag mind.

Be funny If he is revealed within two weeks.

Also really coincidental but I worked with a lad, surname Knight who said he knew someone on the analyst team. Took the job when SC was in charge.

Been told by my mate that once Eire game are finished there be movement on Callum.... in the mean time we been looking at Albert as he is free and surplus to requirements, also want to look at moussat on loan from Bournemouth, been told Johnson really likes him and always asking about him. Believe what u like I got Pisano, Eisa and Palmer spit on... as I said before on my post I got told some that come off some that don’t... the scouting team looking at many players.. but this year we going for more established again and not many Eisa risks

Well the rumour goes that we will sign albert on a free transfer as he is out of contract.

Problem is, Albert signed a 4 year contract with Villa in 2016, so this is nonsense.

I'd love us to sign him tho. Quality player at this level.

A lot of Villa fans on Twitter referencing his contract expiring

I remember there were games where we were a one man attack with Albert. The defence would win the ball and just look for him. He used be exhausted by 70 minutes!

It was quite strange to watch. Teams picked up on it and would double or triple mark him and he’d still get away.

Imagine if we’d of had Albert one side, Bolasie the other and Chris Wood and Pitman up front!

Stats have really not been great for someone playing in a playoff winning team. I wouldn't see the logic to this transfer as it would impede Eliasson's progression who has the ability to be a lot better than Albert and would cost us much higher wages for a player who looks to be winding down. 

And if you can't already tell I absolutely loved Alberts time here, brings back great memories of being at school on a Friday buzzing to get back in the east end to see him tear it up on a Saturday!

But rationally speaking, I can't see why we would be pursuing this transfer and not looking for the next Albert.

Adomah's contract is up next summer so that's wrong. Only right one out of all of them this guy has got right is Eisa. Pisano was by some work experience person who took photo.

Numerous sources saying his contract is up. I get it was announced as a 4 year deal but we do four year deals in a 3+ 1 team option. 

Anyway, I would not pay a fee for him and I would not offer him more than 15k in wages. I think it would be unlikely but there is sense to it

Whether Albert has a 3 or 4 year contract is irrelevant as , these days, contracts don’t mean much. If Villa want to get rid of him, due to promotion, and he wants to go a deal could easily be done. I can see Albert leaving Villa, as his career is coming to an end, and he might not now be Premier League standard, but I can’t see him coming to City. LJ has said he wants to sign players who could play in the Premier League if promotion happens in a years time, and that’s not really Albert

Might want to read what I said at the time... we were looking at them as option... loads of targets and proplevmeeting criteria.... like they did at the time... we obviously went different option.

if people dnt believe fine, I never claimed I knew it all just I have a mate who knows more than we do... nd some names he told me were after some he doesn’t 

he told me we hit palace in pre season 2 weeks before it was announced. But guess I would been lying then as well

Fair play, just can’t see Albert here myself. Think we tried for moussett before before Bournemouth signed him

It does mean something to us. It means a fee for a 31 year old.

Out of contract makes it worthwhile.
