If we can't afford to offer Bates £7500 a week when there is a genuine possibility that he might become a decent defender with an actual sale value then what hope have we got of signing late career players on £50000 a week with no resale value. The lure of playing for Stevie g won't make up for a £30000 a week loss. There is no lure of champions league football or guaranteed silverware to cushion the blow either. What we should be hoping for is being linked with young players that you have never heard of who come in do a job and then we sell them on. Iam sure every fan is sick of hearing 'the wages are a stumbling block' get Your Andy Robertson's at a young age. We need to take a chance. Iam sure we would have been more attractive than hull. My source says we are fundamentally flawed with our recruitment strategy. Apart from cumdog and Morales not one signing this season has a resale value.

No one said we couldn’t afford it, we weren’t willing to meet his demands, bit of difference in that.

Bates is nowhere near good enough. Looked ok because the rest of our defenders were horrendous

18 May 2018 08:23:19
Bates is very average Ausbear. He will get found out in Germany. He’s not the answer, we need stronger defenders to compete than him sir!

18 May 2018 08:24:42
I'm ok with 2 or 3 experience players, but don't want to be spending our budget on them.

Keep the majority of budget for the players who are on their way up with future value.

Bates did not deserve 7500 a week

18 May 2018 10:45:06
Hamburg offered hin 10k a week. Simply put Rangers didn't value him anywhere near that just now. Better to let him leave and usr those wages for another player.

18 May 2018 10:47:03
If bates was Italian or Spanish we’d be saying he’s the best thing since sliced bread but because he came from Raith Rovers he’ll alwats be average or not you’d enough. He was brilliant at defending. how hard is it to get a solid no nonsense defender. every defender these days thinks he’s Madini. we won’t sign a defender better than him this season.

I grant you that david bates was an old fashioned, no nonsense, decent centre half, but common hollow55,to say we won't sign a better centre half than him, this summer is ludicrous mate! Martin skrtel is streets ahead of bates! So is the stoke city captain, ryan shawcross, who gerrard is also linked to! Think mate before coming away with statements like that!

18 May 2018 12:25:59
Won't sign a better CB than Bates? Contender for most outrageous post of the year there

18 May 2018 13:26:31
Come on to **** Supercooper, do you honestly think we’re getting Skrtel? We’re looking at a guy who can’t get a game at Brighton and a guy from Plymouth! Don’t believe all this Lucis and Skrtel talk mate, only being mentioned to sell season tickets and papers!

18 May 2018 14:30:50
I honestly do believe were getting Skrtel hollow55. And with regards to the guy who can't get a game for Brighton the consensus amongst the Brighton fans is that he should be getting a game for them and that we can't afford him. Was reading the comment sections on an article about the transfer on a Brighton newspaper

18 May 2018 14:47:37
I read the same article and commments which were mostly directed at the standard of Scottish football. Bottom line he doesn’t get a game and gas only played 40+ games in 3 years. That is honestly our standard just now, him or people who used to be good. I think Skrtel would be great however being a friend of Stevie G isn’t worth dropping £30k a week.
