If we didn't sign him when we did somebody else would have - No question.


Villa and us had a gentlemens agreement that we both bid the same price and offer the same package to the player and leave it up to the player so that we dont get into a bidding war

I was waiting for that fozzie - Ashton was not a proven Premiership striker at that time - so I am afraid that argument hold no water - Now he's played less than 20 games in the Prem and scored a few goals over a very short period he is worth 7.5M.

You are not comparing apples with apples Fozzie, when you talk of his 3M transfer, you have to go on his latest transfer fee to compare him to Beattie.

All the players I listed and their fees where for stiker proven at the top level in their respective leagues (if from overseas). i.e the bracket Beattie is in.

Its like now comparing Robbie Keane vs Nugent as targets. Proven Keane for 6m or unproven Nugent for 3M.

I for one would have taken Beattie over Ashton and still would likewise id take Keane over Nugent.

Moyes made the correct decision with Beattie.

Agree with Rob here plus he has score 40% of our goals this season...

unfortunately that says as much about our other 'strikers' as it does about BT!

weve still gotta negative goal record! thats not a great reference.

but he's putting in the effort and i hope he does get a lot more goals and a chance to get into the world cup.

If BT carries on playing like that of late - then he could pip somebody to a world cup place - but its unlikely. He is a good player and he is finding his feet. Most of my RS mates would swap him for Morientes or crouch at the drop of a hat.

He is starting to impress and I think, when Moyes pulls the finger out and signs another striker, BT will come good.

Top quality!
