Hojbjerg: Official - Signs for Spurs

It’s not typically our ‘style’ to go raiding the relegated teams from what i can recall - but Lerma, Billing, Douglas Luiz, McGinn (lol absolutely no chance) would all fit the bill as a Hojbjerg replacement imo. Appreciate some of them aren’t doing a spectacular job at the moment but think all would compliment Prowsey well.

Douglas Luiz, really? I think he's garbage and has been all season for Villa. Very hyped and doesn't do a great deal aside from give the ball away from the games I've seen

15m wasted.

Lerma for me :toppa: 

he is physical, quick, sly and all action - breaks up play and counter attacks - exactly what we need

Luiz is pretty popular among Villa fans, seems to be high energy and for a player playing his first season in England and not speaking a single word of English when he arrived, I think he’s done well in some games i’ve seen. Likes a shot from outside the box too, with a couple of good goals this season, we could do a lot worse imo.

Nothing particularly new here;

Still favours a move to Spurs, apparently. 

 

So it isn't about champions league football then. If it was just about that he would move to Ajax. Looking at Spurs and the improvement of Chelsea and Man United i cant see them playing champions league football for a few years now.

This makes sense but I'd guess there's a shedload of haggling to be done.

Bidding war! (I hope)

When did we last have one of them?

Wow I thought we were going to lose him for around £10m, which would have been a bit disappointing. If someone offers £35m we'd be bonkers to knock it back (we won't, and no-one will). Anything over £20m would be pretty good given his contract situation I feel.

I'd be happy enough for him to stay because I think he works well in our system and you can't guarantee a replacement will be successful - and he would need to be replaced. I'd rather not have to worry about that and focus strengthening other areas. However, if we get decent money for him I'm not going to be too gutted - he has good games but he also has poor ones. He covers a lot of ground but also gives the ball away cheaply and has poor composure.

Gutted he wants to go to Spurs, really.

Everton are the sort of club who will bid £45m when you want £35m.

If someone has bid £25million we need to accept it right now and wrap him in cotton wool. That amount of money could be used to such good effect.

One topic that this entire forum is united on is that Hojberg is shite. We can't all be wrong.

He’s actually got me questioning Guardiolas management skills given how much he is meant to rate him.

If Harry Reed were to come back as Hojbjerg's replacement, surely that would be an upgrade? Unless it was an arm tattoo contest?

Even Reed before a full seasons experience with Fulham was better than the performances we're seeing from Hojberg. I'll be really annoyed if we waste an opportunity to gain £25million or thereabouts without needing to sign a replacement player.

He's not shite, he's just very average. 

Personally if we could get around £10M plus KWP from Spurs and then give Reed a chance as his replacement, I would be pretty happy.

According to Liverpool Echo, Everton have started transfer talks with a fee of £18m mentioned but Saints seem keen to include a player(s) that Everton prepared to let go.

From BBC match report, the last bit is hilarious - 

They may soon lose midfielder Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg, however. News broke during the match that Everton have opened talks with Southampton for the Denmark international - who actually filled in at right-back to good effect.

Looking at their squad I can't see anyone I would consider in both categories of Everton being prepared to let go and us wanting them, with the exception of perhaps Yannick Bolasie.

Will be Jonjoe Kenny I imagine, seeing as they know we want a right-back.

Isn't he seen as their replacement in waiting for Coleman? That's why I didn't include him.

They’ve got Sidibe, so I don’t know. 🤷‍♂️

Yeah you’re right. I don’t know then.

Really can’t see many other realistic players we’d be interested in as you say.

Exactly. Reed's been one of the best players in the Championship this season. He can definitely do a job for us.

Yes, fair enough. He's got a level of energy and all-action nature that is of some use, sometimes. But he can't pass for shit and more often than not a liability.

But all this talk of him being good enough to command £30m fees. Insane.

I’d like to see some passing stats comparing JWP and Hojbjerg. It seems to me JWP rarely gives the ball away whereas Hojbjerg is doing so on a regular basis.

Funnily enough I thought exactly the same so I looked them up on Whoscored the other day and they were more similar than I thought. We all know though that PEH is a much poorer passer than JWP.

PEH mainly plays safe balls back and sideways and still cocks up.

Yeah, PEH's states are influenced by the fact he goes backwards more often than not. When he does keep the ball it's in a very passive and safe way. Slows the entire team down when he's in it. Even Romeu offers more incisive passing than he does.

We are lucky Everton want him.  Should hopefully speed Tottenham up a bit.
