    Couldn’t give a *, I think we were quite right to go in and offer about 4M and say if take it or we’ll get him on a pre-contract. Not as if clubs were falling over themselves to buy him.

    End of the day we got Ajeti, who is proven at European level, not League 1.

    Something a lot of people forget..

    Toney is spoken about as a real prospect and Ajeti isn't. Maybe due to Ajeti being a lot more proven..

    Whoever he is he can pipe down, I don't really want us paying 9m plus for that kind of player. If he's as good as they claim I'm sure he'll be fine regardless of all the carry on. Case is closed, can move on.

    Considering though how this peterborough guy has spouted * and tried to be a wheeler dealer with this entire saga, I am more willing to give our board the benefit of the doubt here. In the sense that this guy sounds like he is acting the big man in all of this, he is the one running to the press and slinging mud around, that's unprofessional.

    We bid (rumoured) £6million, they wanted and got £9million, I am okay with that. If there is any truth to us saying we would wait till January, I hardly doubt it was in a Del Trotter style like he is making out, more that we would have offered the max we wanted to at £6million and left it at that, with the knowledge of January coming around - doubt Lawwell went around threatening it.

    I am one of the first to put the boot in to the board, but this lad has been at it since day one with this saga, so I am choosing on this occasion not to believe him on this either.

    In isolation I would be inclined to agree with you, it's not though. Petrie at Hibs made comment, as did the Lyon president I'm sure...and that's only the ones that ones that have spoke out.

    To be clear I did not want us to pay anything like £9m for this guy but I also want us to be moving on from targets a bit more promptly if the disparity in what we are prepared to offer and what they're asking for is too great.

    I think we've got the better player in Ajeti for a lesser fee but I also think there are deficiencies in our transfer strategy that need to be looked at.

    You've got to laugh. Why are they still banging on about it? We offered a decent offer, but they wanted more, which they got. We could've got him for nothing next summer and completely agree with our tactics with this one. I'd rather miss out on Toney than spend £9m on him.

    Notice how they are throwing their toys out the pram about our negotiation tactics but only one club continuously airs their dirty laundry in public before, during and after negotiations.

    If Toney was as good as they say, why didn't he get them promoted? Why didn't they get a £25m-£35m fee?

    You couldn’t complain about the price tag if he’d torn up the league at 20 but he’s 24 years old! The reason we got so much for KT is the same reason Eddy’s being quoted as being worth what he is, because they’re young and can develop further. Toney would be 27 after 3 years with us, no chance are premier league teams paying £35m for a peak-of-his-career striker with no experience other than league one and SPFL. They pay for potential

    It looks like they only got £5Mill and the rest depending on various other things that`s more likely why he`s * off. That nobody was in all honesty meeting what he was hoping to get for him.
