Signed for Peterborough for 7 figure sum . 

 

So at least we got our money back .

Hopefully a good sell on fee for when he signs for Liverpool for 50,000, 000.

DM said in video that they have broken their transfer record. Anyone know what it was previously?

Good business all round. Mo wasn’t going to get a look in any time soon and sounds like we’ve recouped our £1m and maybe made a bit of profit.

I wonder if he’ll become a championship striker in a few years and come back to haunt us though?

Good luck to the lad . Didn’t have a chance with us . But wouldn’t be surprised to see him score goals for them

They've a good history of signing strikers from leagues below. Good move for him and I'm sure he can be a success there. Record signing for them as well.

Better to recoup most of the money given the chance now than lose even more by not playing the kid ala Engvall. LJ said we are looking for Premier League ready footballers, I guess he didn’t see that in him. Probably best for all parties. Good luck to him.

Well we’ve certainly freed some wages up so far . Going to be a busy and exciting summer.

Paid 800k to Cheltenham didn't we ?

Got over 1.25m from Posh by most accounts.

Good business but shame it didn't work out for him here, he should do well for them.

Clearing the ranks for major investment up front? Wouldnt be surprised to see Taylor and even Diedhiou also leave.

I’ll be surprised if Diedhiou left. We need to add to him not start all over. At the end of the day he is very comparable to Assombolonga statistically. Think to get promoted you need quality depth in attacking areas. Adding to what we have is key for me.

Not pointless at all, We bought a prolific lower league striker who had every chance to make the step up. It didn't work out, we got our money back plus some.

Good luck to eisa, but he wasnt going to make the grade here. 

Hopefully we start the season with a real top striker along with famara, weimann with semenyo as first reserve.

If Taylor goes as well then I expect us to sign 2. That'll be 5 strikers, possibly Szmodics coming too who can play up top, so that's plenty of options.

Club record transfer apparently, meaning that it’s over £1.25m - another good bit of business by City 👍

Wonder if 01.06.2019 is so it goes into 19/20’s accounts....a little bit of transfer profit won’t harm.

Was he ever given that chance? We were crying out for somone to put the ball in the net on a regular basis all season

There was a point to signing him though so surely that doesn't make it pointless?

Hope Weimann is warming the bench most of the time, for all his running he ain't nowhere near being a "real top striker", never has been or will be.

Spotted this on the P'Boro site from Darren Ferguson, didn't have to say it so nice to hear.

“I want to thank Lee Johnson and everyone at Bristol City because this has been going on for a little while and they have conducted themselves superbly throughout the process.

Absolutely and more evidence of the stability and sustainability mantra of buy ‘em cheap, develop them and sell on at a profit.

Obviously Eisa wasn’t quite ready to make the step up in standard and has moved into the level just below. Good move for all concerned.

Disagree mate 2 new, Diedhou and Szmodics would not be enough if we had 2 injured and 1 suspended we would be struggling.

Don't forget we lost 5 strikers season before last and only brought Eisa in we never replaced Duric and Engvail.

Yes he was given a chance. He was in training with the squad for the entire season but seemingly didn't have the quality needed.

Yes, recently reported by Jon Palmer (journo who is pretty reliable) that it was £1m (£800k up front, £200k this summer).

From an FFP perspective we will have amortised £333k, so if they’ve broken their record, then probably a fee in the region of £1.5m, so £833k transfer profit in 2019/20’s accounts already.  Wonder if the deal was specifically 01.06 to fall into this year’s accounts?

Diedhiou, Striker A, Striker B, Weimann and Sememyo. Szmodics as an emergency 6th option. I guess it depends what type Striker A and striker B are, but I think another on top of that would mean at least one probably never plays.

Yes good business , some people saying 1.6 million but had on good authority that it was 800 k plus plus , but we do now need to bring class in

He adds so much more to our game than just running. 

He's a good finisher with brilliant movement and has plenty of experience. 

Personally I'd be more than happy to see him starting for us next season

And he was very poor against Plymouth. Like you say, if he isn't looking very good in training then what's he going to be like on match day? Probably not very good.

I forgot about Weimann :laugh: I can see Sememyo going out on loan to be honest.

I think we need a fox in the box type striker and a big lump like Keiffer Moore and a bulldozer like Britt Assombalonga

How did they know he was any good? are they like we did going on his previous record at Cheltenham because they sure as hell didn't see much of him here, well not at a decent level anyway.

A good bit of business for everyone and I hope it works out for him. The Championship was probably a stretch too far this early in his career, given his non-league roots.

They were after him last summer before we got him.

Likely to be a decent sell-on too and with their track record every likelihood that they will move him on in a year or two for a much bigger fee.

Cant see the negativity with some. We are a lower level Chelsea that invest in young talent whether or not they eventually make the grade with us. It’s a numbers game but by coming to us most will raise their value. There will always be some we don’t recoup but as long as we make good profit overall then we’re winning.

...since last summer 😂😂😂😂😂

Think Lincoln we’re in for Mo too, so Peterborough will be glad to get their man.

You are talking shite one of our best players last season who rarely got a chance to lead the line but when he did he scored or assisted

So we signed Mo for an estimated 800k, he appeared 5 times.

We have now sold him for somewhere in the region of 1mil - possibly more with add-ons. (Assuming that the posts on this thread are accurate)

That's two thirds of a Tilson profit.

You're right he does have the qualities you describe.

However, what we need - and the point the post you replied to was making - is that what we need is "a real top striker".

None of the strikers currently at the club fit that bill - fingers crossed we sign one.

It’s mad how football has changed in such a short amount of time. The turnover of inept players in the last few years is incredible. So many have come and gone in such a short period. Previously managers were judged and ultimately sacked based on the success of their signings. Now we seem to be fine with taking gambles that tally up into the millions. It has coincided with LJ’s appointment but I’m not really sure if it’s down to his relationship with Steve Lansdown that he’s been given this freedom or whether this is the way we are going to go about are business going forward even after Johnson leaves the club. The club certainly never used to make the amount of signings we do now or gambles on young players. Managers certainly couldn’t spend money on players for the future like we do now. It makes you wonder if the money we’d spent on the likes of Engvall, Djuric, O’Neil, Watkins, Adelukan, Hegeler, Moore, Magnússon etc could have gone on 1 or 2 real quality signings, and not on gambles. It’s a shame sky money has ruined football really as prem teams can’t get an average player for £20m these days and there’s been a knock on effect down throughout the leagues. Engvall was our club record signing at the time. If you break your record to sign a striker 10-15 years ago he was being handed the number 9 shirt and was starting every game. Now we are spunking millions on players that aren’t anywhere near first team ready. Crazy
