    Jury is out weather he comes good or not he’s not been great here so to double our money if it was 500k inside 6 months is brilliant business he don’t fit the system we play no brainier to cash in.

    How is 8 goals 31 appearances ‘awful’ for a 21 year old?!

    excluding penalties? And you are the main striker? And you miss a fair few?
    He was a bad buy, it happens. This is good business.

    Am I right in thinking he's the last of the ex pompey boys to go to? Doyle, O'Brien, Davies and Chaplin.

    You are quite right - didn't have the stature for either Santa or sky blue Sam!

    You seemingly like to bash our players.

    Evidently not a bad buy if teams in the division above are willing to pay him for more.

    He could’ve done better, but at 22, was definitely always going to improve.

    I’m willing to let him go if it facilitates the right transfers, after all, every single player has a price.

    Not even a Pompey sell on clause...

    Surely Pompey have a sell on clause?

    Wow. Short sighted on their part. Unless we said we would pay 500k with no add ons, or no deal?

    Not if he plays like his dad - I don't want a centre forward playing in our own half making clearances and tackling.

    In all seriousness Walker was a very decent player and scored a cracker of an OG in the cup final.

    Hit the nail on the head with this one. He was terrible for most of the season. He probably missed more 1:1’s last season than he scored

    “Bad season”

    The kid was on for 16 goals over a full season at 21 in his first season away from his hometown club.

    Some people need some perspective.

    He's a talented player, you can see that in his movement, but he isn't / wasn't the out-and-out goalscorer we probably hoped for. Perhaps our expectations were wrong.

    Your goals per minute references are a bit tiresome - Mick Harford was a 240 a season striker by your logic

    Never rated him, missed far too many chances and offered very little in terms of build up play... a poacher who can’t finish... sounds like we have had their pants down.

    Cash in and move on. Not enough goals.

    Barnsley fans on their forum talking about how fast he is. Going to be disappointed if they think he's a rapid striker. I like him and do think he could have come good for us. But £1m far too good to turn down. Would have probably taken £500k and moved on tbh.

    His lack of pace was his biggest weakness.
    Us playing him too deep was our fault.

    Doesn’t work like that sadly. You can only really count the actual amount of games played and actual amount of goals scored in those games.

    I doubt it we have a replacement lined up and will have to find one as I doubt we were planning on selling him

    You have to look at ratios, they normalise out injury and the like. Not perfect but better than comparing someone who played ten minutes with someone who played 20,000

    He got an injury. He did OK is my only point. To claim he had a bad season just isn’t correct IMO.

    Good time to cash in, if he stays and doesn't do very well, we would never get anywhere near £1M for him.

    I agree that Robins probably didn't plan to sell him this summer, but I reckon the recruitment team have thought about different possible scenarios already. Chris Badlan and Dave Boddy seem very on the ball and I bet there has been a lot of talk about who Robins could get after Barnsley's original offer of £700k was turned down.

    Fact is the biggest issue we had last year was score goals. Chaplin for the money we paid wasn’t the hero we thought he would be. Hiwula has been better value. Again Thomas did some great things but at the same time should have scored more.

    Robins recognises this and has new forward line with Wesley, Kastaneer and attach minded Allen. Hiwula I feel will make an improvement to his first season with us. All we need is an out and out proven goal scorer.

    I also think this dea has been bubbling away for weeks and Robins never denied it. Replacement should be lined up.

    There is no guarantee we'll reinvest the money. We've already spent this summer, the Wilson deal didn't happen and there is a massive hole in the finances because of reduced ST sales.

    Maybe we will, but I'm not expecting it, and if we do it'll be borrowed money.

    You can’t be happy with Hiwula and not Chaplin on those stats.

    That’s a bit before my time.

    10 mins per goal more and roughly 50% more assists per minute as well.

    And IMO strikers need runs of games which Jordy had more of.

    I think we had three OK strikers last season. None set the world alight but none were terrible either. If we clicked more as a team any one of them is a potential 20 goal striker IMO.
