View Full Version : Tom Ince/Danny Ings

Will be interesting to see the outcome of the tribunal set for Thursday which will determine the fee for Tom Ince. If Danny leaves us at the end of his contract, there w I'll be a few parallels with the atom Ince move to Hull.

Another good parallel would be Daniel Sturridge's transfer to Chelsea from Manchester City. Although Sturridge was slightly younger he was an England U21 international and the fee was:

Chelsea paid an initial fee of 3.5 million, with additional payments of 500,000 after each of 10, 20, 30 and 40 first-team competitive appearances. There would also be a further payment of 1 million if Sturridge made a full international appearance.

Surely we can expect a similar deal if Danny moves to one of the top clubs in England?

I'd have thought it would be somewhere in between those two.

Ince is a decent comparison, except Ings has played and shown he can cut it at Premier League level.

Sturridge had played more in the Premier League (I think) and I think the fact he'd been there from youth days (unlike Danny or Ince) will have also increased the fee City received. As, no doubt, will the fact their Man City (wrong though that may be).

If it came to it, and we got anything like what Hull have to pay for Ince then there is something horrendously wrong with the system. Ince has managed to start only 8 Premier League games since going to Palace last January.

also worth nothing that Tom Ince is an anagram of 'to mince'.

apt, i feel.

Tom Ince has a famous dad so is worth approximately 3 times more than Danny.

Take that point Tony, but don't think value him as of last summer, without taking into account how much he's played or otherwise this season?

Otherwise, surely the system would be open to being gamed by big clubs who just keep those players in the reserves until after the tribunal?

is his dad Frank Lampard Snr?

13-01-2015, 12:36 PM
He'd not got a game hardly for Palace up to the summer and I remain convinced no one wanted him until Bruce did his dad a favour.

13-01-2015, 12:39 PM
What you on about- Inter wanted him!!!!

13-01-2015, 12:43 PM
'is his dad Frank Lampard Snr?'

No, it's the comedian Robin Ince, you doughnut.

What would we get if he moves abroad . Graham Hunter , who cover Spanish football , was on TalkSport this morning and suggesting that although he had no specific information, he wouldn't be surprised if Moyes tried to sign him.

13-01-2015, 01:49 PM
I wrote on here a while ago,Tom ince has been struggling to get in any side,paul ince and Steve Bruce were neighbours for a long time in bramhall Cheshire, so Bruce has taken him as a favour for paul nice,all the rumours about him going abroad were coming from paul nice !!!

13-01-2015, 03:12 PM
He needs to sign a new contract and stop ****ing about!!!

13-01-2015, 04:20 PM
I said on a previous thread I wouldn't be surprised if Moyey tried to lure him to La Liga.

13-01-2015, 05:10 PM
Just can't see him being interested in playing abroad at this stage of his career.

his Dad is the guv'nor don't you know...
