Me too. Just a feckin expensive publicity stunt IMO. It’s all about the big names for Derby. Pathetic.
Their tactic is weird...I think it makes them feel more important if they bring someone famous in. Not really sure of the long term plan there...in fact none of the 'stadium selling clubs' have a long term plan, hence why they resorted to that.

Not really ,hes a fantastic player and the young players will learn a lot just by training with him.

i think people just dont like him so refuse to accept how good a player he is.

Rooney was a fantastic player, but has the body of someone who will 'decline' early is possibly a polite way of putting that. He will be a great example to those around him, and he has always been interested in coaching players. But Derby have resorted to the 'big name first' strategy recently, it all just feels a bit on the nose.

I don't like the guy particularly, but annoyingly it's hard to see him not being useful as a player, on the training ground, and as a sheer motivational lift to the team/club.

They've played a blinder getting Matt Clarke for the season and Bielik from Arsenal. They're going to be much better than I thought they would be a week ago in fact I'd probably have them down as one of the best three in the division now.

Because you only post negative stuff/moans...

How about posting something positive about something the club is doing.

Your posts relate to stuff the club are supposedly NOT doing.
Yet these transfers, for strikers, have probably been in the pipeline for weeks but something needed to kick start before it happened.

Revel in the joy the club is bringing.

Amiens fans point out that Ghoddos in training with them today - so unlikely to be done, if at all, today.

Dunno how medicals get done in tight time-scenarios (perhaps he could have seen a medic yesterday evening for example - and results been given to club on phone/email prior to specifics being worked out).
Or perhaps deal can be signed with temporary get-out clause for the Bees if he fails a medical post-deadline.
One would assume legal paperwork could just be emailed/faxed and signed then sent back scanned/faxed.

This is the Tweet, he is the one behind the arm at the very right of the second photo.

When the photo was taken is unclear (likely this morning), but does indicate that things weren't as close as we're being led to believe. That said it's possible that they're discussing terms now and that he could fly over later. It's all a bit too speculative at this point though...

Quite conceivable that once terms are agreed with the player he can pop over tomorrow or even be en route now to complete his medical

Is there any necessity that he do his medical here? I’d expect there to be suitable medical facilities in Amiens and no real difficulty in getting BFC’s preferred doctor(s) etc over there. Similarly, there’s no real reason why physical signature of the contract has to be in the UK (the contract could be signed in counterparts so doesn’t even need to be the same piece of paper- could do it by docusign on his phone while looking like he’s instagramming his training session).

Trouble is with being this close to the end of the window is that agent can really push on the personal terms...

And the local community. The street workers can't wait for his arrival! :D

Is there still interest in Lyall Thomas, or is that dead?
Not sure if you are pulling our legs but he is the Sky journalist.

He actually mentioned his namesake Lyle Taylor 10 mins ago if that helps...

#BrentfordFC in talks with Saman Ghoddos over personal terms after agreeing a deal with Amiens. Hoping to make him Maupay's successor. Also remain interested in Lyle Taylor. Target Albian Ajeti heading for #WestHam #Bees (link: https://www.skysports.com/transfer-centre) skysports.com/transfer-centre

So what Mbuemo played a league match the night before he joined us and have you forgotten how many training session pictures there were of Maupay?

Calm down - merely pointing out that he was pictured in training. The day of Maupay's deal - he hadn't been pictured. So just pointing out, for all the 'announce Ghoddos' people out there that he probably won't be signing today. The 'if at all' part - maybe he is the backup option to the Lyle Taylor deal??
