I know you’ve, apparently, got quite a bit of inside knowledge - any insight as to why this ‘double’ didn’t happen? Seems AA is off to Forest? 

Wages offered?

Probably, but @Knighty posted lots on this thread indicating it was probably going to happen - surely with his insider knowledge he’d have known early on whether wages would have scuppered the deal?!

Out of contract....might’ve thought he might come back for a sensible wage, hence get the analysis team on him....then other clubs start offering more than we feel he’s worth.

[guesswork from me]

As stated a million times it’s an avenue we were looking at.... plan a b c d e f. If we never got Kalas do u think that been it? Or de Silva? No there would of been other targets...

thats my mate role to seek targets n analyse them along with his team of people.

Think a lot of u think city got one striker there looking at etc.. No there are 4/5 targets that are being looked at...

what happens if brownhill n pack break a leg in ore season or eliasson???? Targets, back up plans are in place... welcome to modern football..

as for adomah it’s another of the many things he told me that doesn’t look like coming off? Why he or I aren’t prevvy to that... 

i know johnson spoke to him maybe callum is changing his mind? Maybe with the other teams in wages were too much. 

Who knows I’m sick or trying to explain to people my posts...

A lot of people have little concept of what happens inside a pro club.

To be fair, you did yourself no favours on this one by making it sound like a done deal in a brief early post. If you’d just said City were considering whether to bring Albert back, no harm would have been done.

See Adomah just signed a 2 year contract with Florist.   I wish him all the best, and hope he personally has a great season, but also hope Florist finish in the bottom half of the table. It would have been brilliant to see him return to Ashton Gate........but the timing was wrong, and he doesn't fit into our policy of signing younger players. Good Luck Albert!

Exactly. There are lists, and then lists of lists with all scenarios covered, promotion, relegation, who stays who goes.

I’ve said in the past I had through knowledge of a player several years ago now. He had one year left and no sooner than the season started he was already deciding on where he would be playing the following season. He had offers of loan deals for the January window too, all this was happening in August/September and was very distracting. There was a deal from the club on the table too, but only for a further year and he wanted two. He had a manager who he had previously played for phone him at home, all hours of the night and was quite a nuisance. All whilst he was playing for us.

If that went on several years ago for a player who was on his way down I can only imagine what up and coming players are getting distracted with, they must have 10 times the offers this player did.

This player played all the season with this in mind, that’s what staggered me.

I never once believed we would be in for Albert. He is getting older and slower. Not the kind of player we would bring in on high wages.

If we really wanted him then surely we would have beaten Forest to him.

I expect he found his way onto a list, how high up, dunno?  

Suspect our analysts looked at him.

Suspect we may have even inquired / enquired (someone correct me) what wages he might want.

Suspect our interest waned at that point.

You’d think our analysts would look at probably all free agents with that sort of experience in our league. Especially one from a club who has just been promoted. 

Personally I expect there was genuine interest on both sides, but when discussing and figuring out his role, probably all realised it was nostalgia rather than the right fit.
