£3.5 million, Could We Get Moore?

£3.5 million, Could We Get Moore?

According to reports today Rangers have been told to cough up £3.5 million if they want to land striker Luke Moore.

The 21 year old hasn't had the best of times since his shoulder injury, and he hasn't recaptured his form, regardless of the possible reasoning behind that.

Martin O'Neill admitted to the Evening Mail that Rangers manager Walter Smith contacted him last week about a possible move.

'Luke is a Premier League player and that's what he would cost in this day and age.

'Rangers haven't come in for Luke in terms of a bid, but Walter Smith asked me about him and that's as far as it's gone.

'Is there a £3.5m price tag? Well, yes, obviously because Luke is a Premier League player and that's what he would cost in this day and age.

'I spoke to Walter maybe about a week ago and he hasn't been in touch with me since.'

To be fair if we do let Moore go, it should be for more, not reasonably the same price we paid for Marlon.

£3.5m for Luke Moore a fairish price I would say, agree we need numbers in not out, but Rangers have not been back maybe they think he is overvalued. He has just signed a one year extension but the agent seems to be touting him around and maybe the attitude isn't right. It is of course possible that the level he is most comfortable at is the same as his brothers, after all the championship is comparable (just) to the SPL isn't it

Isn't it the case that a couple of years ago we were so short of players that members of the youth team were promoted to the first team. They did OK in terms that we weren't relegated but we were in the bottom half of the table. As they were in the first team then, they believe they have the right to be there now. Luke is one of these and his performances this season have been poor. £3.5m is about right for someone with an attitude. Last Summer we though Steven Davis should stay. He didn't and what has he done since?If the former youth players don't want to knuckle down and fight for a place - like Harewood, Maloney, Curtis Davies and even Petrov to some extent but feel they have right to a place in the team, then it is possible time they went. I like Cahill but if he has the same attitude, then this applies to him too.

Luke Moore is not the best in terms of a never say die attitude and yes he is on a downer. That said, it is still an unknown what he would be like with his confudence back on a high. He could look like £15 m rather than £3.5m. In these circumstances in my view he is not worth selling. If he comes good he will be worth a lot more either to keep or to sell. If he doesn't come good we will still get £3.5m. I still hope he makes it and think he is massively underperforming. The end of last season his instinctive striking was no fluke - just him playing with belief> Get that feeling back and he will come good again and we would all want to keep him then

Luke's lost his way - bit like Hendrie - too much money and not enough ambition and grit. He'll just fade away - pity loads of talent but has a couldn't care less attitude.

3.5 quid for an England U21 International seems reasonable. After all we paid 9.5 for Young and all the potential he offered.

Luke is on the downhill slope, and whatever happens, wherever he ends up, he absolutely has to get his act together and quick. The individual talent is there, but he's definitely lacking important components. Just another forgotten name in 24 months time if he doesn't get himself sorted.
