View Full Version : Austin

on his way to Southampton (4 million) following medical!

his knee must have improved since Bruce looked at it! :/

He deserves to be playing in the Premier League and I'm sure he'll do well there. Just glad he's leaving QPR to be honest, really despise that club and glad they are struggling. Austin leaving will hopefully ensure further struggles for them.

Great signing - amazed no one else has snapped him up sooner. OK so he may have a few injuries but he will get goals wherever he plays. Good luck to him.

great , bring Jay back and get him fighting fit back home (won't happen I know :-) )

Charlie + Jay together again

'bring Jay back'

Fanciful,I agree but what a coup that would be. Don't know how he is currently regarding fitness but if he is at a stage where he needs game time it would be ideal for both parties. Jay must be looking at next season now and no chance of international involvement until at least then. As I said, fanciful and highly improbable but not impossible.

This can't be true ! Because CT said he has the same agent as Ings and he was going to leave on a free at the end of the season.........

I'm confused I thought CT knew everything about every club in the land.

There may be a hint of sarcasm in this post.

A steal for a club like Southampton that. He'll bang in a decent amount for them. Surprised at the 4 1/2 year contract though

Are we entitled to any money ?
Is it just a percentage of the profit you get ?
How much did we sell him for ?

16-01-2016, 11:26 AM
That sort of money is a steal for a proven goalscorer. If he can stay fit he'll do very well. I imagine QPR are pleased to get him off the wage bill though.

"Because CT said he has the same agent as Ings and he was going to leave on a free at the end of the season"

I was quoting Austin himself. He said he had no intention of leaving until the end of the season. I also pointed out that he does have the same agent as Danny Ings, he's called David Threlfall I think,

QPR have done well here to get the money for him given he was a couple of weeks away from having no monetary value.

We won't get anything I wouldn't have thought - QPR haven't made a profit.

'We won't get anything I wouldn't have thought - QPR haven't made a profit.'

Wonder if thats the reason that they seem to have accepted pretty much the first offer, without pushing the fee up. Seems pretty un QPR like the ease and speed of the deal going through. Presume if theyd have asked for a million or so more on the fee, a substantial chunk would have gone to us which we could have used on another wage/transfer fee.

Good signing. At that price Man United should have gone in for him - they look short of goals and would be low risk.

16-01-2016, 12:23 PM
I am of the understanding we should get something as he was sold for less than the 4 million he he is now being sold for. but also it is my understanding that a sell on clause is not about profit made more just the sell on figure.

16-01-2016, 01:06 PM
Sell on clauses are almost all based on profit.

Fans of the bigger clubs don't want him, not a stellar enough signing / foreign enough sounding / or has a low scoring rate abroad meaning he's guaranteed to score in the UK (delete as applicable) .

Cheap as chips at that price. Watch him go!

16-01-2016, 04:47 PM
Yes a grand signing and well short of that silly 15m they were quoting at the beginning of the season.

CT was right. Austin had said he was seeing out his contract. A south coast team with mates must be appealing. QPR responded well!

Terrific value. I wish we'd bought him.
