At the start of this skein,Ivor,, you suggested we should haggle to get Sorba Thomas, and I’m sure our management would, if they were interested. Me, if I were offered a £4 million house for £750k, I would move hell and high water to find the money.
PS. On all those lists it’s not till the last one, successful crosses, that I saw a Swansea badge, Josh Tymon at 13th

I had no idea of his actual value when I posted and suggested a haggle on the basis that the asking price is usually negotiable when you buy anything. That said, once I'd investigated further, my inclination was to pay the asking price before anyone else grabs him. I think he'd be a real asset in a decent team, which Terriers were not. I wonder if our lot are even aware of him?

I'm hearing that Sheffield Wednesday and Cardiff City are both sniffing around Sorba Thomas. Be gutted if we miss out on him - particularly to the latter!! :eek: With that in mind I enlisted the help of @Ladygargar who supplied me with some possible contacts. I've already phoned one who couldn't help but he supplied an email address for someone who might. I'm mailing him today.

It's so frustrating! A few years back I'd have just strolled into the club, met a player or two that I knew and passed on the info. Can't do that nowadays and it's even more difficult right now because it's the close season. Anyway I'll keep trying and keep the forum informed.

Being reported today that Swans are interested in Gambia international centre forward Adama Sidibeh of St Johnston. Aged 25 he was signed from non-league Warrington Rylands and has scored 2 goals in 10 outings. His transfer value is 250k Euros and it seems we're in at £500k. Now, I don't know a thing about Adama but it seems to me that Sorba Thomas is better and more proven value. Have our scouts got their heads up their arses?

Sidibeh scored 5 in 15. He played 10 games in the regular season, and then 5 games in the relegation play-offs. In the last 5 games he scored 3 goals and helped St Johnston to stay in the league.

I don't know a thing about Adama but it seems to me that Sorba Thomas is better and more proven value.
Yes, he is. But how about both? :)
