Can't believe we've sold Murphy!!!!!
« on: August 14, 2015, 06:56:40 pm »
Heard rumours earlier and just had it confirmed that we've sold Jamie Murphy to Brighton.

Undisclosed fee but 'substantial' we'd already turned down 7 figure bids but this one was "in the best interests of the club" and Murph said he wanted to speak to them. It's always a difficult one when the player wants to leave but I'm still gutted!!

On the face of it this deal is shite.......but, the reported £1.75 million fee is a good price and ONLY if it is reinvested in the squad could it be beneficial for us.

I don't believe that our main problems are up front and this money can really strengthen our shocking defence.

Adams can play wide and when fit, Done and Flynn are more than capable........it's not all bad IMO

UTB :ok:

And, let's be honest, Murphy was very hit and miss.......undoubted quality and head and shoulders better than anyone on his day but sadly, that was mainly in big games against better opposition and rarely against bread and butter league opposition.

agreed Ash - I loved Murphy when he was really on his game, but a lot of the time he was just another bloke in a red and white shirt.

No problems with the deal, the club, or the player. It's football. Now Nigel - make us believe we didn't need him.

I agree with Ash, that, on his day, Murphy was very good. However, these were not on a regular basis. If the fee is around the suggested £1.75m then it is a reasonable price. How much did we pay for him?

I do hope the money goes towards the team, but I have this sinking feeling that it might be destined for Mctwats back pocket.

I think we paid £250k Bolts, so from a business point of view a good deal.

Interesting bit in the article I just read which said Clough was going to sell Murphy this summer so he could strengthen elsewhere - in the belief that Adams' progress was so rapid we could do without Murphy.
