    Agree.

    TBF, could still score goals at this level in the right system. Brighton could do worse.

    He will need to take a significant paycut if he is to leave in the summer.

    Doesn't it depend where he goes?

    I would have thought we'd let him leave cheaper to help with the buyers' wages?

    In January Sky said the some Premier League clubs had inquired about him but we wouldn’t sell as we didn’t have a replacement lined up.

    I’ve heard he’s got three houses on Park Lane, so he can probably afford to take a pay cut.

    I thought at the open trading he looked sharp and his attitude stood out.

    If Shane Long falls over in the box and there’s nobody near him, does he still make a sound?

    I like him as an asset to the football club, seems to be great for the group, but nowhere near good enough to play football in the premier league

    Birmingham or QPR?

    Under the right scheme he can score in the PL. This is not Ralphs scheme. Any of the Championship teams coming up, Brighton, Burnley, etc could all use him.
    Frankly though, going back to QPR where is he still is a hero may be his best option.

    He doesnít hold the ball up enough to suit Brighton or Burnley. I know youíve had a crush on him but heís washed at a PL level.

    Good news if we've got a taker.

    Always felt like Palace would be a good fit for him, albeit they may play on the counter a bit much for him, but with balls constantly coming into the box he’d still be lethal at this level

    I would not be surprised if he is a 'makeweight' in the deal to buy Mitrovic from Fulham !

    I would because we won't be signing Mitrovic.

    He doesn't fit any of the criteria that RH has spoken about with regard to signings.

    Part exchange for Che Adams would be nice. Straight swap would be even nicer.

    Doubt they could afford Austin's wages and pie bill.

    Straight swap? Dream on.

    This could end up like the Jones/John or Bridge/Le Saux transfers where it’s not officially p/ex. But kind of is.

    Are there any houses on Park Lane, don't recall seeing any? Did you mean Park Lane, Bournemouth perhaps next to the flash hair salon.

    I imagine we'll be subsidising the wages of pretty much every chunk of deadwood we finally get shot of.

    Disappointing as Austin was 1 of the few I thought we had half a chance of shifting.

    We do and probably will but Austin is worth nowhere near the wages we are paying him. At least it’s only for a year, unlike Carrillo or Forster.

    Or let him go on a free and they pay a bulk of the wages.

    And we did only pay 4m for him. Standard in those instances to see higher wages.

    As far as I know his preference is not to move that far north (Birmingham max) but obviously money talks, it might be that he (or the club) don’t get many offers and he has to take whatever is available.

    Rangers are a big club, he would do well north of the border and still earn a good wage. Would be a tempting offer rather than playing in the Championship or lower league PL.

    Do you think Defoe is paid peanuts at Rangers?
    They can afford his wages but I think will end up at QPR anyway the owner will love signing him back

    I think Bournemouth are subsidising a lot of Defoe’s wages.

    They can’t afford all of Austin’s.

    He already plays for a Lower League PL club.

    Even ings has been transformed to a striker who cannot score, do you still think that it is the strikers' problems and not ours?

    Even Ings? The most goals he's ever scored in a Premier League season is 11. So, two major knee injuries later and a shadow of the player he used to be, having lost his pace, which was his main asset, a return of 7 goals is probably as good as anyone could've expected.

    We signed a briefly half-decent striker whose best days are far behind him. I don't think it's any more complicated than that.
