Just had a glance on the Norwich forum and they were saying how good he was and they wouldn’t mind signing him. Easy to forget how lucky we are to have him, going to be crucial to any success we have this year, he’s not even fully fit yet.

Somebody mentioned hyam being the best signing of the Robins era... For me it's dabo or Kelly

I reckon Dabo is gone in the summer. A good season in the championship and he'll attract large bids from lower teams in the Premiership. It'll be the same as always: "We cannot stand in his way". If Robins is smart he's already scouting his replacement.

He will cost, 2.5 years left on his deal and were a championship club now, providing we stay up

It is frightening that Dabo played whilst being sick. Still recovering from no preseason and minor injuries, but we know there is still more to come as he continues to build his fitness. Keep him fit and the refs give him protection, we should comfortably stay up and build on for next season.

Dabo £10m
Hamer £15m
Walker £7m
This figures are realistic. Can't see any of them going to be premier league level yet. But certainly have the potential never to play below this level for rest of their careers.

They need to be home established Championship performers first.

I guess from context you meant unrealistic? Yes, of course, these figures depend upon them all having very good seasons. If Walker knocks in close to 20 this season he'll be worth much more than £7m though. Hamer is a banker I'd say, Sky commentators pick him out every time we play, so he's obviously 'en vogue'.

If they all have a decent season what would you value them at?
Nowhere near that they’d have to be in the end of season best league team to get anywhere near those sort of fees.

None would attract premier league interest so which championship club would spend £15m on Hamer? Full backs rarely get close to those fees. Walker would need a very very high scoring season to attract such levels

Hamer will get a premiership suitor once established.

Walker will prove himself at this level. How much did Toney cost from a L1 club?

Dabo after a decent championship season or two will be playing in the premiership.

That pass by Hamer to Giles was worth £5m alone !!

So we have 3 if the best players in this league then?

wow. Sell sell sell !.

That would secure our future for the next 3 years and gets us to the next meaningful stadium news
Plus Klopp might move for Max if their injury crisis deepens. Kerrrching !!

If these figure are true we need to increase out expectations and expect far more from Robins than scraping by as we have it seems 3 of the most talented players in championship history

Ah yes still Hamer and Dabo would on these levels be two of the top 15 - 20 in history. Also it seems Hyam is up there as well. We have it seems £40 million of talent at our disposal in 4 players alone
