tribunal avoided. 

What the hell was all that about!
Who needs a left back Blush
soon find out if the club was right or wrong on this one .
My guess is it'll be £4-5m.

I can only presume that the football department, Pulis or both didn't feel he was worth it. Begs the question why we wasted so much time chasing him though.
Think it'll be more than that Peach.

Leeds will have shown we've made offers of 4-5m, should it have gone to tribunal, and they rejected them, and Burnley are well documented to have 30m from Keane, plus the Prem money so will see any potential replacement target's price vastly inflated.

I think we'll see the actual price coming out at £7-8m which I suppose we felt was too rich, especially if Smalling is available at £10m, and TP's general lack of a requirement for a fullback and preference for experienced players.

5m.  We were never in for him smokescreen for Gibbs errrr....
I thought we had actually agreed a fee at one point but then pulled out after that to focus on other areas of the squad ?

My theory with Burnley and Leeds is that Leeds have been asking for X amount all summer, Burnley originally felt that fee was too high but then realised the fees were getting more and more mental as the summer went on and so crumbled to Leeds demands.
Sellers are driving the prices higher and higher.

Let's wait and see what's said.

At the end of the day he's out of contract and only ever played chump football. I know the markets inflated but I'd be surprised if he goes for £8m. If he had a long contract fair enough but a free transfer id be surprised.
It really does`nt matter good luck to both Taylor and Burnley but we moved on ,to either prioritize on another left back or other position`s.
