Care to name me some of these £1.2 million players available who are as good as Paterson?
Even if we identified someone, that club would inflate the asking price knowing we'd just been paid over the odds for Paterson.
Show Burnley some £££££££££ signs and the people who run the club don't see the long-term.
nowhere near a proven scorer as Pato was for Scunthorpe before we signed him
Would we get Ings or Rhodes for £1.2 million? I doubt we'd get Rhodes for that and Ings is nowhere near a proven scorer as Pato was for Scunthorpe before we signed him.
I don't rate either as highly as a fit Pato.
I think BK & Co want a striker in first to pacify the fans before they sell Pato.
I think Paterson is aware that Portsmouth are going to offer him a lot bigger wages than he's currently on which has turned his head this summer. I was told Howe had rejected a transfer request from him before the players reported back for pre season.
Danny Ings is definately on Howe's wanted list.
It bl**dy says something when Pompey can offer Paterson "much bigger wages" than Burnley.
The Football League should bring in much harsher financial penalties to prevent clubs like this signing players after they have failed to pay local businesses, St John Ambulance Brigade etc... what they are owed.
Pompey should only be allowed to pay peanuts to players until ALL their debts are repaid
I'll wager Paterson scores more goals than Austin this season whatever the club.
Neither may be at Burnley come the end of the season.
What if hclaret is proved right? It'll just be him posting, alone, forever.
