Just read in the Times today that West Ham have made a modest offer to us for Julian Speroni. Anyone else see this?

The report says they dont know whether or not it would be as back-up to Green. If Jules does go I'll wish him all the best, but I seriously hope he only leaves to be a Number 1 somewhere.

Modest offer? Julian won't be going anywhere for whatever their modest offer is. Those two will just be taking the piss out of our predicament.

I wouldn't go to West Ham given the recent turmoil, but given our current predicament, it highlights the need for the takeover to be completed sooner rather than later...we like all the players need there to be stability.

If I was in Speroni's shoes I would be getting my agent to point out to a certain Frenchman in Nth London that I was a hell of a better keeper than any he has there at the moment.

I would be okay with that. Hes to good for this league, and it would really piss me off he went sideways to QPR. At least West Ham is a step up for him.

What for a modest offer? If West Ham want him they should pay the price which should be 3million plus. Their modest offer knowing them means more like 300k.

I've often thought that he'll end up at the arse. They could (both) do a whole lot worse.

I can confirm it was a modest offer - just 5m.

I can confirm it was a modest offer - just 5m.

Really don't want him to go but I think that 5m would take Agilo off our backs for ever (rot in hell) and would pave the way for Parish and the consortium to take over without a firesale. That just might be the price we have to pay to stay alive and to be able to compete in the Championship next season. Julian won't want to go but nobody could blame him if he did and saved the Club.

kettle
05-05-2010, 08:24 AM
If it was 5m, why not wait for a 2nd offer, if we reject it. I could see a deal of 6-7m being offered. Plus I would want it up front, not dependant on appearances etc.etc.

Sodermalm
05-05-2010, 08:26 AM
Don't be so stupid - it would almost certainly not be 5m even if our finances were ok!

Ralph
05-05-2010, 08:28 AM
5M!!?? Can I ask how you know this, I really think Jules is a top top keeper but the best thing he could ever do for us in our current predicament is join WHU. This really could secure our future. Amazing if true. Getting the true value for a player given our circumstances. Makes me even prouder of what Jules has achieved in his time here. Desperately want him to play in the World Cup.

EagleinOz
05-05-2010, 08:29 AM
I'd be astounded if Wet Sham are looking at throwing that sort of money at a potentially back-up* keeper.

*DISCLAIMER: I rate Jules as much as the rest of us and firmly believe if he goes anywhere it should be as number 1.

I think we can safely assume that GF was taking the mickey with the 5m comment. Probably more a case of knock a zero off that :sob:

There is no way West Ham would have offered 5m for Speroni - they of all people know exactly what our finances are like and as West Ham's situation is pretty ropey too they are not going to be handing out charitable amounts. An offer I can believe as they know that we will need the money unless CPFC 2010 agree to fund the Summer but we would be lucky if it was 1m

He is an amzing shot stopper and has done well to help us stay in the division but, he can be replaced.

Sadly I make you right.

In the current financial climate, with our plight as it is, someone is going to get him for a steal. Like, 750k.

As others have said, I desperately hope it isn't QPR. :(

05-05-2010, 08:49 AM
In a perfect fair world we would get 3m. However in the position we are in we would probably get 500k up front with another 250k based on appearences etc. Really not worth selling any player at the moment if they want to stay and we can afford the salary.

ANDYEAGLE
05-05-2010, 09:16 AM
At the start of this thread the article says a modest fee from West Ham.
This means 500k max. Realistically if the takeover goes through any offer for our high wage earners over 1.5 million would be very tempting. Even Danns and Ambrose have only a year on their contracts.
At the moment we must have about ten of our squad players on 6-10k a week.
There has to be drastic cuts.

On reflection that's about it. We can't be blamed for being anxious about the takeover and survival of the Club even if it means falling for a joke.... that said an Argentinian goal keeper crisis at the World Cup with Jules stepping up and saving the penalty that wins them the cup Cup .... 5m would be just enough tocover his agent's fee :)

Oh and I'm really looking forward to seeing the Spammers go down by Christmas next season as the Porno men get their just deserts

kolinkins
05-05-2010, 09:34 AM
And this is why CPFC2010 need to move ASAP and hurry things along.

all while they linger, our best players will leave for under 1m (which surely, if say we lose Speroni, ambrose, Clyne and Danns for 750k each [3m] rather than 2m each on average, would negate any price difference between what they want to pay for SP and what the ground admin want?)

MasterYoda
05-05-2010, 09:37 AM
problem with Jules, unlike any other player in the team, we couldn't even think about replacing him for anything reasonable.

Our one player who is worth far more to us than any money we might expect to get. Yeah Ambrose scored 20 goals, Jules probably saved more.

I'm not sure how much that is true to be honest. The takeover uncertainty is only one of a number of factors depressing the value of those players. With the exception of Clyne (who I would hope we would do all we can to keep), they are all going into the last year of their contracts, and are probably on wages we can't afford to match for a new contract offer.

Therefore even if the takeover goes through tomorrow, those players are likely to be sold, and sold for less than we would like. The alternative is either for them to sit on high wages for a year, before going for nothing next summer, or renewing their contracts on wages that we know are unaffordable. Of those three choices, sales now probably represent the "least worst" option.

Isn't it amazing... 3 years ago most people were wanting us to ship Speroni out ASAP... Fast forward to 2010 and we're touting him as an Argentine international worth 5m... :o Oh how times change!!!

If West Ham were to offer say 1 million for Jules, then it would have to be considered, it could well allow us another month in which to get the takeover completed.

I noticed Ian Bennett is available on a free, a fair keeper at this level.

full on squad rapage unless cpfc2010 actually complete the takeover. unless they get this done and dusted soon it will be the first of many. can't they see it will decimate the squad

The problem is, that the squad needs to be decimated. A quick look on the "wage bill" thread gives an idea of the scale of the problem. We got into the mess we did by our outgoings exceeding our income over a long period of time. That simply cannot continue, and on this basis the current squad is simply unaffordable.

Yes, this will have an impact on our competitiveness on the pitch next season, we should be in no doubt of that. But we need to understand that the first job of the new owners isn't to enable us to push for the Premiership. It isn't even to keep us in the CCC (although that is proably the realistic objective we should have for the next few years). It is to make sure that the mess that we have now been in twice never happens again. If we need to lose our best players to do this, so be it.

FraserH

I will conceed his kicking is not brilliant but his catching has been very good! He would be very difficult to adequately replace.

Jason

:sob: so you would want to get rid of jules? he is the most important player imo that we should keep, its not easy to replace a keeper of his quality.

Of course I don't want to get rid of Jules. Likewise I dont want to "get rid" of Ambrose, Danns, Lee or anyone else. But, going forward we have to live within our means. This means that we shouldn't be paying anyone more than 4k per week (at the absolute max). If Jules, Ambrose, Danns would be happy to sign new long term contracts at those levels, I would be very very happy indeed.

However, my expectation (although I acknowledge I don't know for sure) is that they would not be. They are professional players, llooking to do the best they can for themsevles. Realistically, we are unlikely to be able to match what others will pay, while remaining solvent. As such, the long term health of the club means that we will probably have to lose a number of players that we would rather keep

Son of Ron
06-05-2010, 11:01 AM
apart from the really top keepers like Buffon and the ridiculously overpriced ones like Craig Gordon, keepers never tend to attract the big fees even though they're one of the most important players in any team.

I reckon we'd do well to get 2m for Speroni under normal circumstances and 1m given our precarious situation. 5m is just laughable.

I can see him making the move to a team of West Ham's standing though; I think Green has been linked to Arsenal previously. Mind you quite a few should be on the look out for a keeper......

Man Utd - Van Der Sar must be about 47 by now and the back up like Kuzcsak and Foster are yet to convince

Chelsea - Cech never quite the same after his injury and backup of Hilario and Turnbull are hardly top class

Arsenal - Almunia, Fabianski, Mannone - say no more.

Spurs - Gomes has come good, but still prone to clangers. Cudicini out injured and getting on.

Birmingham - now Hart will go back to Man City

Fulham - Schwarzer is about 37

Aston Villa - Friedel turns 40 next season and again Guzan the backup is dodgy and Stuart Taylor injury prone

etc etc

I would have thought that out of our current crop of players, Speroni is the player who has been the most consistently impressive and reliable and if i was a Premiership manager, it would be the first player in our team that id enquire about.

Certainly agree with you Son of Ron that there are plenty of Premiership teams that need a decent goalie as there are not many around at the mo.

AJ
06-05-2010, 12:22 PM
In a perfect fair world we would get 3m.

I think that is still way to high. No one would pay that sort of money for a Championship goalkeeper unless they were a) stupid or b) desperate. We all think he is worth more and is the best in the division, but, the other pro's in the league didn't even vote him in the Championship team of the season(it went to Lee Camp of Forest).

I completely agree with your sentiments.

However administration or not, All Championship clubs are in the same boat.

I too want a well run club with players on realistic wages. We can even get a head start on this, even if it means mid table boredom for a couple of years, whilst the rest of the clubs in the championship fall over like a pack of cards into administration due to their existing debts.

I am fed up of every football club keeping up with the Jones's with money it doesn't have.

However that said it still doesn't mean we should ever sell our best assets lower than what they are worth.

Speroni is worth 3M end off, and others have said, there are not many great keepers about.

I hope the CPFC2010 consortium wont take too long to conclude, to stop us selling players on the cheap and run like a well run organisation

West Ham have got that sort of money if Sullivan and Gold want the player.
They have just offered 4 million for Dorans.
I don't think the suggestion that we would get 5 million for speroni was serious anyway. If West Ham have offered anything at the moment it would not be more than 500k. The most we could hope to get for Julian would be 2 million imo.

I must be in the minority, but, I don't think Green is all that much better than what Arsenal already have. Green was hyped as this great goalkeeper when at Norwich, but, the few times I have seen him on the box this season he tends to make mistakes quite frequently.

You can add Stoke - he is better than Sorensen, Simonsen is getting on and never been first choice since he left Tranmere. Wolves - Hannemahn is getting to the end of his sell by date and Hennessey has looked a bag of nerves at times. Bolton -Jaaskaleinen is not the keeper he was a few seasons ago. Wigan - Kirkland often out injured, the Slovenian ? back up keeper doesn't look a great shake.

Personally hope he doesn't go anywhere, will be the hardest to replace of all the players we are likely to lose this summer.

If today's press rumours are to be believed that West Ham are selling Green for 6million and Speroni is to be his replacement then I think it's only fair we let him go and play in the premiership. Maybe he'll get the international recognition he deserves.

Having said that, West Ham can double their 1million offer at the very least.

Julian Speroni will wait on the outcome of CPFC 2010's takeover of Crystal Palace before making a decision on his future.

The goalkeeper, who was named player of the year for a record third season running on Saturday, has already been linked with Queens Park Rangers and Middlesbrough this summer and could be sold to help fund player wages.

Although he says he would like to say at Palace for the rest of his life, he admits he might have to move on to further his career but will wait for news on the takeover before choosing where he will play next season.

"I'm waiting for next week to see if we have any news on the future owners of the club," said the 30-year-old, who flew back to Argentina yesterday to spend six weeks with his family.

"I'm looking forward to that and seeing where we are and what to do in the near future.

"I hear all the rumours about me but I am just waiting, I don't have anything else.

"I am still a Palace player and I am happy with that, I just have to wait and see.

"I have said many times before I would play here all my life if I could.

"I am comfortable and I am happy and my relationship with the fans is fantastic.

"If I could play here all my life, then why not?

"A footballer's career is a short career though and sometimes you have to do what's best for your family and yourself.

"A lot of things are going on at the moment though so we will see what happens."

Speroni beat top scorer Darren Ambrose to player of the year at Saturday's award ceremony, equalling Jim Cannon as the only player to win it three times, although he is the first to win three in a row.

"It was a special night and the fans were unbelievable with their support," he said.

"The loved they showed me was impressive and my team-mates as well, they were outstanding with me.

"I can't actually remember what happened when I got the award, lots of things were going through my head at that moment.

"Of course it is special to players, it is an award from the fans and the people that really love this club.

"To have that recognition from them is really special, you feel loved and you feel wanted."

Can someone confirm if his contract runs out in 2011 or 2012

If it's only a year, we're not in a good position

Speroni is an excellent keeper & worth more than what cheap skates West Ham & QPR will offer. But we need money!!

It's bollocks though, a site run by six year olds who trawl football sites if they are allowed up that late, or if not just make it up. They never have any quotes. Julian is not out of contract and is in Argentina on holiday so how can he be in negotiations with them?
Not saying we might not lose him over the summer but that crappy website will not be getting any scoops.

also if Jules went to the Prem I wouldn't be surprised if it was for more than double his current wage!

Speroni has one year left

He has been spoken to and as I understand it, been persuaded to see what happens with Palace and what the new owners can hopefully offer him

QPR will have to wait to bring Julian Speroni to Loftus Road.

This week the Crystal Palace keeper won his club’s player of the year award for the third season in a row and is apparently being courted by Premiership clubs and Middlesbrough.

The 30-year-old is going back to Argentina for a break and waiting to see what other offers come in, and his former manager will have to look elsewhere if a move to the top flight materialises.

Speroni said: "A footballer’s career is a short career and sometimes you have to do what’s best for your family and yourself.

“A lot of things are going on at the moment though, so we will see what happens."

No way have they offered 5million, everyone knows you havent got a pot to piss in.
If they Sold Green to get him of there wage bill and then got Speroni in for 1 million if your lucky you should snap there hands off.

I agree its probably not what hes worth but you cant exactly haggle in your situation at present.

Hopefully, we'll be able to keep hold of him, if we get bought/funded through the summer in the next few weeks.
