Struggling eh lad, did you not write in your earlier post

"Thank god it is the Sun that has reported it .We are safe if they have reported blades fans .Would not believe the date in that toilet paper".

Well forgive me if I am wrong, but you seem to be saying because it was reported in The Sun, it's probably wrong, which also means your probably safe from signing Forrestieri because he is clearly not the sort of player you want or need at S2 …….. am I correct ?

My point being, in my sarcastic post which clearly confused you, that criticising The Sun is the sort of garbage spouted by Guardian readers and that if You lot did sign Forestieri he would suddenly become a wonderful Bladesman, like the rest of the ex Wednesday players have when they have turned up at S2 …… fickle ….. prove me wrong or explain your confusion !

Is your first language English .I WILL FORGIVE YOU NEVER BOUGHT THE GUARDIAN IN MY LIFE and someone would have to hold a gun to my head to buy that toilet paper called the Sun I USE ANDREX.AS FOR FOREST GUMP I think he would be the last player I would sign for my beloved Blades .Did he do a runner without telling anyone that he had gone home/Turned up when HE decided the time was right and then only puts 50%effort in if he thinks he;s not bothered.I tell you mate he would not last a month at the lane he would have his a--e well and truly kicked.Only been one from the dark side that's been up to scratch and that was Quinn all the others were poor.I say so now and I said so at the time now whats fickle about that?There is not one in the Owls team I would swap for any of ours and if you look at the final league table I think even a small minded Sun reader could spot why.That's if the Sun has printed it correct of course.I am not holding my breath.

That price tag though 😂 It's even had a good few Wednesday fans laughing!

 

For that you could buy any of Daniel Sturridge, Javier Hernandez, Dom Calvert Lewin, Danny Welbeck, Danny Ings, Rondon, Troy Deeney..... Literally a whole host of players with Premier League goalscoring experience. 

 

What exactly has Forestieri done to warrant such a hefty price tag?... I reiterate that famous saying! You are only as good as your last season!

 

Proper goalscorers with recent form such as Ollie McBurnie, Gwight Gayle and Jay Rodriguez would all be more than attainable on those sorts of valuations! All with 20+ goals this season and multiple assists!

 

All of which have actually touched the Premier League playing field at some point, all of which in very fine form.....

 

I'd much rather punt for Neil Maupay, he'd be available for that sort of money. Again hasn't touched a blade of Premier League grass, but neither has Forestieri....But, he has a rich form of late.

 

If wednesday accept a more realistic valuation of around £5m, then maybe I would consider playing ball.

 

Anyone who believes that a bloke who is 30, with a world beating 32 Championship goals over the last 3 seasons is worth anything more??....Who are you kidding seriously!

 

Cracking goal against Norwich, is this where we get the sudden, ridiculous, over-inflated valuation from?

 

Don't get me wrong, I do like Forestieri despite the earlier jest.... But that said, I probably like the forestieri of a few years ago as opposed to the one who hasn't really done much of late. Be more realistic in valuation and yeah, i'd give him a chance, but not for half Chansiri's asking price!

Curran did a bit of a cutting his nose off to spite his face move, Big Jack didn't cave into his demands at S6 so he jumped ship in retaliation.

People seem to forget Curran dropped two divisions to play for the club he supported and loved,VERY FEW footballers do that,but Terry did and took a haircut wages wise.I cant think of any first teamers off hand that have done that?

He only asked for a compatable wage,it wasnt extortion,the rests history,obviously our neighbours offered him the terms we wouldnt and he made his point by pulling on a utd shirt

Only one place Mcburnies going to and its home town club,leeds,can see him running down his contract to get his way,cracking player at this level,Gayle and rodriguez would command decent fees in todays market,25M plus,Id put maupay in the same bracket,Brentford arent mugz and asked Burnley to pay 21M for one of thier fullbacks ,inflated prices filter down when when clubs get minted

Spot on with FF valuation,if we got 5/6M id be well chuffed

You do realise this "valuation" is the speculation of a journalist who's widely know to be a little economical with the truth.

What do you really think he is worth?   I like him and the Championship is cruel to some very skillfull players and he has suffered. He needs a fresh start and maybe will get one under SB. If he is for sale I would say £6m and CW may be tempted (subject to terms)

He would fit into our style

3-4m tops. He's been injured a lot since his first season.

He's a decent player, probably worth 8-10 million if performing at his peak. I can't see FF and CW hitting it off though:)

 

My bet is on this being a Wednesday initiated story to make sure that people know he's available and to try to hike the price a bit.

A bit of an overview - He was fantastic in his first season, one of the tp 5 players in the division, a player who could win a game on his own.

 

2nd season we had the Norwich debacle which was nver fully explained but possibly resulted in other players coming in on more money, he never quite picked up the pace that season.

 

3rd season he had an opertaion to cure an injury but broke down soon after this led to a further op on a cruciate ligament which put him out for months, he made a comeback towards the end of that season and had a great run of games scoring goals again.

 

4th season started the season under Jos but was in and out with hamstring problems, also had the farciacal Mansfield court case hanging over him, returned to apparent full fitness at the end of the season and scored one of the goals of the season at Norwich.

 

His current value would be about £5-8m if he could have a good pre-season and comeback fit under Bruce he could be a key player.

I can only see the opposite of what you think mate to be honest. 

 

There's one thing that Wilder demands in abundance and that is personality and self expression... the sort of things that a player of Forestieri's nature thrives off. A typical Wilder team talk being to go out there, enjoy it, express yourself, do what you do best and do whatever you can to bring me 3 points back. 

 

I think it was evident that negative minded tactics don't suit Forestieri. He is the type of player who wants to get at players and to impose himself. Wilder's positive mindset plays into Forestieri's capabilities and I think if any manager is to get the best from him.....it would be Wilder. 

 

All in all, it has the makings of another Wilder signing.... Smooth off the rough edges, promote self expression on the football pitch and just enjoy it. 

 

It's a huge gamble and one that unfortunately becomes high risk when thinking above £5m. Potential to be a superb signing if he comes over with the right mindset and application.

Yes it is, so before you criticise I suggest you check your own writing skills, back to the point though, and most football fans are fickle and 'dem Blades' have cheered many ex Owls over the years, regardless of your personal opinion of their worthiness, you do know you have not always played like Barcelona eh ?

I'm looking forward to see how Wilders brand of football holds up in the Premier League, he's done well in the lower leagues, I will give him that, I suggest you enjoy the moment though, from what I have seen both Leeds and Villa already look better equipped for the top flight than you lot will be :wink:

What a load of garbage I can see you are a Sun reader and thanks for admitting we are playing like Barcelona great attacking football do you know what that is?You and a few others may get a shock next year just as you did the year before when according to the dark side we would struggle in the Championship and we would not last two seasons in it.Well you were all right we did not last more than two seasons 🤣.Thanks to the best manager in football which all managers have agreed we are in the prem not that I like the prem but the money is handy.You are right of course you are Leeds and Villa are well equipped to deal with the prem they are full of actors and cheats and divers so they should do well.If we come down so what we will have 75 mill parachute money to help us with our terrible loss😂One thing for  sure it will not be a team from the Dark side that will take our place. We will look down on you from our Ivory towers while you struggle yet again in the Second class league .You have not got alot going for you really have you in Sheff 6 it must be hurting when you glance across the city at our surging run up the football pyramid don't worry it is something you will get used to in time.
