General Discussion / Re: Joachim Andersen
« Last post by Denver Fulham on March 08, 2021, 11:48:47 PM »
I really really hope we have a strong option to buy Andersen. He is the best loanee we have ever had by a mile. We need Lemina to stay and Maja, we need Areola to stay, we need Tete.We still need another striker, we do not need Cav or RLC.

Andersen is at the very top of the list though.

Tete is already our player. He's not a loanee.

If we do stay up and if these players want to stay at Fulham (with Andersen and Areola obviously having big-club options, and Lookman, too, depending on how things shake out for him), you're probably talking 70m in fees and huge wages for just the three of them, before you take up Lemina's relatively cheap option, talk about Aina or RLC staying on, or adding a top-class striker and/or winger and/or central midfielder to help the attack, or any additional needed depth. We've been really fortunate with injuries so far on the whole; our legitimate bench is about three players deep.

It will be VERY expensive to keep this together. We'll see what the budget looks like, but hard to see us keeping most of the key guys for numerous reasons, none of which may be "They're not happy here." The spirit this team is showing is astounding for how many loanees there are. It's night and day to 2019.

I would sign every single loanee if we stay up, will cost us close to 100mill but would be worth it. If we sign them all we will probably only need a prem quality Right winger and a proven goalscorer. So probably looking at 120 mill next spend, we will also get additional TV money as we stay up so we are likely to be able to afford it

Agreed, although I think we'll severely struggle to get two PL quality forwards for the £20m you've budgeted. But if we offload the deadwood (Fabri, MLM, Seri, Mawson, Knockaert...) I reckon we'll have a bit more than £120m to spend, plus we can always have a few fresh loans next season if we make this season's loanees permanent. 

Another thing to consider as well if we stay up is that the PL income would make FPP look vastly better would it not which would allow another splurge in the transfer market? Over the rolling three years with two years of PL income, t should give us much more wiggle room in theory, and we've also ended up with some players who have vastly inflated their price tag based on this season, so worst comes to the worst we could flog one of them to a lazy top six club with more money than sense

We should target achieving at a minimum 14 more points out of a possible 30 points. There is lots of good reasons why we can reach that amount as our good form is no coincidence especially as the likes of Brighton, Burnley and Newcastle will be also fighting for every point.

39 points should do it.

If we keep this run of form up we could sneak 16th place.

Don’t want to get ahead of ourselves though - goals are still very thin on the ground.

Sign Areola, Anderson, Aina minimum.

Lookman would be a bonus.

Anymore presumably would push FFP if we hadn’t already.

Suspect Mawson, Knockaert, etc would all need to go to balance books.. however still £30-40m short I imagine so.. Anguissa? Mitro?


If the 4 you mentioned cost 100 million and they all signed 4 yr contracts, then you only have to amortize 25 million plus salary. The issue won't be next season, but how far do you push the boat out over the next 3 seasons following. I don't think it is as a big of a risk because all 4 have shown themselves to be top level players, no guess work with them. Think each like FZA can be moved on if needed at any point in a pinch, but it is not my money that would be on the line.

Lemina would basically cost you the price of selling S. Sess or Kamara for next season. That is a no brainer.

This season the issue is you could not push it out too far because if you went back down you still have to amortize for 35 million in players plus salary next season. On top of that some of your biggest FFP price tags are guys like MLM/Seri. Mawson, and Knock all who are not with the club at this point and have little to no sell on value.

IF we stay up, i think we can sign 6 of the loans for 40-60m, Andersen is not going to happen.
Areola - PSG - Option? Yes
Aina - Torino - Option? Yes
Lemina - Southampton - Option? Yes
Lookman - RB Leipzig - Option? No
Maja - Bordeaux - Option? Yes
Loftus-Cheek - Chelsea - Option? No - On a huge salary down the road, can't see him joining us this summer. Also don't think anyone else will sign him, another loan to us might be a good solution for them as well. He is more likely to come good here than anywhere else...he has had a decent season but he needs to have a great season for them to get him off their books.

A few more signing and we are good to go for next year. Tuanzebe? Reiss? Armstrong? Kongolo (basically a new signing if we can get him fit...)

Andersen - Lyon - Option? No - Will play Champions League next season, now out of out reach.

Another thing he brings to the team is strong leadership. He thrives in his captaincy role and he might be tempted by a Fulham project built around him. He sees football differently than the average player, hopefully becoming the leader of an established PL side will appeal to his values.
He didn't dismiss the idea of staying here in his recent interview.
