Doyle stays at Bradford. We sign Grigg on loan.

Doyle is free in June. The fee we would have paid Bradford for him can now go direct to Doyle as a signing on fee. We give him a 2 year contract. Everyone’s a winner!

I would expect that as we are in a standoff with Bradford re his perm transfer means that any contract we would offer Doyle is acceptable to him. Just waiting for the nod from Bradford. Or not.

I guess that may depend how the rest of the season goes. If he gets lost in Bradford's set up and can only muster a few between now and the end of the season it will raise questions over whether his form here was just a blip. Coming here for the rest of the season would give him a chance to reach 30-35 goals and show it wasn't.

That said, I can't see him returning for the rest of the season and think a new loanee is far more likely. But what do I know.

I'd bet we're getting a bit ahead of ourselves if we think it's Grigg or Doyle, let alone both as has earlier been posited.

Enquiring and talking is one thing, stumping up is another.

I'd be delighted to be proved wrong.

We must look a decent prospect to players at the moment top of the league and the Doyle situation has probably helped with him being top scorer here and in the league, players know they will get chances to score goals here and enhance the reputation and get a move.

I suspect Doyle is pissed at Bradford recalling him he made enough noises before the recall that he did not want to return to them, and leaving his twitter bio at swindon suggests he wants to be here not there.

Will it happen ? I can only see it at the end of the month if he has still not scored a goal for them as it then puts Bradford in a situation where they have a player on big wages, does not want to be there, is not scoring in their team do they get a bit of cash and reinvest quickly or run the risk of him disrupting them team even further.

But Wellens may not wait and may move on to other targets though....hopefully there is a deal to be done either now or in the summer and Doyle returns to the stfc fold, he knows he will score goals when he is here (and his wife seemed to be happy as well), and if he goes elsewhere he runs the risk of another Bradford......tick tock

Quite a difficult technique that though in this case. Don't you think?

No. If you have Grigg lined up and are in negotiations or some dialog with Bradford over Doyle you don’t tell them you have Grigg in the bag you push them hard on a deal that’s acceptable to you over Doyle and tell them thy have 48 hours to agree what you have offered. If they say no or do not respond in 48 hours you sign Grigg. We need Grigg or Doyle now, there are as mentioned four games until the end of January that is a potential 12 points to gain or throw away. I’d rather have Grigg now than wait till the end of January to maybe land Doyle. After all if they think we have no one lined up they can keep us hanging on until it is to late to get anyone.

Oh and regarding the training ground being a long way away, that too could be a RH. I know they try to use Swindome but won’t pay the rental asked, they may have stumped up and gone there it is after all under cover and a long way from say beversbrook.

Not sure if I'm missing something here. But if pele really wanted to come back here couldn't he just hand in a transfer request? " I want to leave for swindon, please take their offer or I walk for nothing in the summer"   ...just a thought.

True so I'd have thought Bradford would rather make at least something back on him.

You'd think the plan would be for him to fire them to promotion, which would likely make more money than they would get by selling him.

Whether or not the plan works remains to be seen. He got no service on Saturday by all accounts, which comes as no surprise.
