Supposed to have had a 650 grand bid for doughty rejected. if we want the boy stop messing about jyst go and get him. he would provide competition for moi.

{Ed007's Note - I think Doughty's being targeted to play at LWB.}

Agree0 Disagree0

Hopefully don't know much about the boy ed but he seems highly rated by bowyer.

{Ed007's Note - Doughty can play anywhere on the left, in CM and he has also played on the RW.}

Will this lad come straight in the team? Seem like a young lad, maybe one of these projects we seem to love buying! Would like to see an experienced left sided player coming in to be honest.

{Ed007's Note - He'd go straight into the first team squad.}

U seen any of him ED? Is he any god? Bit underwhelming for me. would liked a more seasoned player in that position if lennon wants to go ahead with the 352.u think we’ll bid again or pick him up on a pre contract?

{Ed007's Note - I've not seen much of him but Doughty is very highly rated and Fulham have been long term admirers along with West Ham. WBA, Crystal Palace, Brighton and Aston Villa who have all scouted him and there's also a raft of interest from Championship teams since Charlton got relegated.
If Lawwell plans on playing hardball to wait and offer him a precontract then we may lose out - there's no way we are the only Club negotiating with Charlton.}

Why if they really want him go in with the winning bid then if he wants too much wages etc then we know celtic did what they could the player no wanting to come we then live with that and we move on.

14 Sep 2020 17:13:16
So if PL doesn't get his finger out the player going somewhere else would we be better just sticking with the process of a LWB natural or have Forrest or even Frimpong play there?

14 Sep 2020 17:54:53
Why do we have to play these 'Cairo Market place' games with every player we pursue? Look at the bigger picture Celts! If he is as good as you think and he is young enough to actually improve, then pay the money and look at it as an investment. If we were more assertive and proactive from the off, we could actually have a pretty decent team in place before the CL qualifiers.

We need to stop pissing around in the transfer window and get someone in to replace forest he has become complacent, he needs competition.

15 Sep 2020 13:34:56
You have to wonder what the mindset is in our transfer dealings, Alfie Doughty we raise our bids in increments of 100k hoping to get it done. Players like Bayo, Compper, Shved, Morgan, Hendry, Soro etc, its millions out the door and little in return. I know that isn't being fair on Soro just yet but the others we paid good money for and ended up with nothing in return.

The new scouting team seem a bit better than the last, go pay the 1.2m or whatever it will take to get this boy, especially with Bolis wage off the books.

15 Sep 2020 13:47:22
Is he better than young Luca who can play at the back and CM? If he isn't what the F are we playing at? Plus, Lawell trying to save ten bob will probably eff it up anyway. Give Luca a chance.

15 Sep 2020 18:57:51
I'd also like to see Luca given a chance. From the little I've seen of him he's tenacious for his size and has some great technical ability.

If not then would be good to get him out on loan in SPL to get some games under his belt. Same applies for young Oxflex, Henderson and Harper.
