    Default Walker watch

    From the Sunday Mirror.

    "Liverpool, Arsenal, Spurs and Manchester United are tracking teenage Nottingham Forest striker Tyler Walker, 18, who is the son of former England star Des."

    Nothing in this story btw. Clubs watch other clubs players all the time, just stick a few big clubs names in a headline and you have yourself a story. Incredibly lazy journalism.

    Des scored only once? What about the cup final... and the playoffs?

    In any case, he's just signed a contract with us, so he's staying here for however long that is for, and clearly happy to do so.

    Really hope he has at least one season with us, Next season should be his time to shine , IF he turns into the next Harry Kane we would get alot more money for him the following summer just in time for Britt to be back to full fitness.

    He's not going anywhere. It won't impact on FFP and his wages will be peanuts. Besides, I'll guarantee Des will want him to stay at Forest. Give him a few games near the end of the season and I'm get him ready. He's just signed a professional contact - not going anywhere. Bamford was sold as we were desperate

    Given that DF was a striker I'm sure he can spot a footballer and an imposter! Tyler will be ahead of Lars in the pecking order

    Bamford was sold because he refused to sign a professional contract.

    I think that Tyler is here to stay for a while at least.

    We'll get a few years out of him... If he's good enough of course!

    I think he could well be good enough, we need to start playing to the strengths of our strikers.

    They'll probably invoke the EPPP, grab him for a peppercorn transfer rate, and he'll go on to be United's best striker for years.

    I don't think they can as he has a pro deal.

    Definitely, balls into feet and round the back. DF might see Fryatt and Blackstock as similar strikers. Yesterday was clearly not appropriate for young Tyler. I think we might start seeing him on the bench in the next few games. Especially if he goes with both Dex and Matty up top. Can see Cash, Walker, Grant and Burke playing a part over the next season. Surely they'll be cheaper and can add just as much as expensive loans like Chalabah. I'll probably be lambasted for saying so but with Reid, Cohen, Lansbury, Vaughan and Osborn. I can't help but think Tesche is superfluous - and probably quite expensive

    I think you are right there, although isn't there a panel to decide transfer fees for young pros?

    Agree, but as long as we are suitably compensated.

    Are you saying Lars is an imposter?

    EPP is only for youth contracts in academies, if he signed a pro deal they have to agree a value with us first. Bamford went because he refused our biggest ever contract and we needed the money for Harewood

    Eppp only applies to players under 18. Walker is 18 so it won't apply, also the fees are set and depending on appearances made will increase the fee.
