Sheffield United remain intent on keeping Sander Berge at Bramall Lane this summer but Arsenal may have a player that could be of interest to the Blades
On a permanent then yeah makes sense if he was part of a deal. But if they want us to knock off the price of one of our assets so we can take one of there’s pay his wages and return him a better player. No thanks.Sheffield United remain intent on keeping Sander Berge at Bramall Lane this summer but Arsenal may have a player that could be of interest to the Bladeswww.examinerlive.co.uk
He was an exception
I just look at Carter Vickers and EEL and even Ampadu to some extent
Yes hed did well in L1Harsh on EEL that. He was fine in the League 1 season and scored a few important goals to boot?
I was just making the point that Man U had a plan for Henderson.
Given it's worked very well for them, there's a good chance there are other PL clubs with players who were on loan at L1 last season but are looking at a PL loan this season. Don't just write them off.
Norwich sold Godfrey to Everton for £20 million.Cashing in on Berge and buying 2/3 average squad players (eg Freeman) is the old United way. Look at teams that have bounced back like Norwich. Despite relegation they kept their ‘star’ assets and they played to win the chance to go back to the PL.
If Berge wants PL footy there’s 2 ways he can do it either get a transfer to a PL side or pull his laces tight and earn it. He’s spent a big part of his career with us injured and not shown much of his capability when he has played just highlights of what he can do.
So, if his headset is that he will earn a place in the PL keep him, if it’s up to his Agent to buy a place in the PL for him let him go but play hard ball.
So that’s 2…
Im talking about loan players specifically mainly those that have been associated with the BladesSo that’s 2…
Decent level, ok, fair enough. So let’s look at the England squad shall we?
Harry Kane was in League One with Leyton Orient.
Jack Grealish was at Notts County in League One.
Maguire was with us in League One.
Ben Godfrey was at Shrewsbury in League One.
Ben White was even worse off, Newport in League 2 before he went to Leeds and transformed their back line when they won the league.
Ollie Watkins was in L2 with Exeter before Brentford bought him.
Sam Johnstone was at a plethora of L1 clubs before Villa got him.
Pickford the same.
well, apart from them??
Want some a bit closer to home?
DCL was at Northampton in League 2 from us, as was Kyle Walker.
Ramsdale was at both Chezvegas and Wimbledon.
I'm not sure of the point you're making then?Im talking about loan players specifically mainly those that have been associated with the Blades
Not players that have come from L1 and below to become good players
Im sure I could find a list of players that have come from a PL club been on loan in L1 and never played above that level that list would be a hell of a lot longer
They were OUR players not players we loaned in
As above Im sure I could find you a very long list of players we have loaned out to L1 and L2 clubs that have never played above that level and many that have drifted into non league or out of the game completely
I'm not sure of the point you're making then?
Should we just not sign players from League One at all, even if they're better than the PL reject equivalents?
The problem with that is players that have done well on loan in the championship tend to go on loan to a PL club. It’s part of their progression.The OP suggested Ballard as a loan option from the PL
My opinion is that if we are loaning from the PL we probably should be looking at players that have had a previous loan spell in the Championship and done well and not be going for players that have been loaned to L1 clubs as we are looking to be top end of Championship (hopefully)
I have no problem us signing permanently the very best L1 players like Toney etc
Agree totally.Let them come up with the money or fuck off. The only alternative is if they give us money and a couple of their top young players on permanent deals.
While keeping Buendia, Cantwell, Pukki, Aarons etc, it’s all about losing the players you can replace and keeping those who are irreplaceable ie Buendia. The question is who we can recoup good money for and replace with decent quality. The thought of Berge playing in the right formation and tactical set up next season…Norwich sold Godfrey to Everton for £20 million.
