Title: Other Transfer News
Post by: manc_don on July 30, 2010, 03:15:19 PM
David James moves to Bristol City :O

http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport1/hi/football/teams/b/bristol_city/8866521.stm

Quite surprised by that. Quite a coup for City. Unlucky Septic  :wave:

Mark hughes is Fulham's new manager. Think that is a more than decent appointment. Hopefully he can build on Roy's success and ensure they retain a few of their key players from last season.

Mark hughes is Fulham's new manager. Think that is a more than decent appointment. Hopefully he can build on Roy's success and ensure they retain a few of their key players from last season.

Think so too Manc, he was disgracefully treated by Man City.  The Fiver had quite a good bit on him yesterday:

Quote
Almost everywhere he has been, Mark Hughes has commanded respect. On the pitch, where even opponents couldn't help but admire his formidable blend of combativeness and finesse; in Wales and Blackeye Rovers, where he transformed threadbare outfits into robust ensembles; in the press room, where, throughout his stint at Manchester City in particular, even the most jealous hacks appreciated his intelligence and dignity in the face of questions so loaded they probably went on to chuck TV sets out of hotel windows or drown in swimming pools of their own vomit; and on the burger phone-owning Home and Away star lookalike circuit, where he has been earning rave reviews since being ushered out of Eastlands 221 days ago.

Pretty much the only place where Hughes has not been respected, in fact, was in the City dressing room, where certain divas openly scoffed at his attempts to get them to actually justify their humongous wages and strops. That does not fully explain his failure at City he must bear much of the blame himself, notably for a slew of spectacularly ill-advised purchases (a chronically crocked Roque Santa Cruz for £17.5m? No wonder Hughes is still a hero at Blackeye), persistent defensive knack, and some uncharacteristically unbalanced tactics towards the end of his reign but there is no doubt that some of the City players were about as easy to work with as a whiskey-and-bleach-induced hangover. Happily for Hughes, that is not a problem with which he is likely to have to contend in his new job: for he is about to be appointed as manager of Fulham, a stable club with players who are as diligent as they are talented.

Having inherited such a squad, been spared the task of blazing a trail to Big Vase final again and promised enough resources to make a couple of quick recruits (starting with Craig Bellamy, it says here), there is no obvious reason why Hughes should not replicate his achievements at Blackeye and push Fulham beyond the 12th place in which they finished last season. Of course, if the Blackeye model is anything to go by, they almost certainly won't retain their spot at the top of the Fair Play league.

Agreed.

Reckon Hughes will be successful at Fulham too if he gets a few bodies in. Got well and truly done at City, not a big enough name for the new owners. I expect the current boss to get the dunt much as these moneybags appointments end up.

I think he does actually, he also isn't as old as I used to think he was.

Remember him playing against us for Dundee, must have been 93/94, in the league cup at Dens Park and it went to extra time after we got a late equalizer, and he scored at our end in extra time and he gave it big licks in front of us after it.  I was amazed to find out later that he was actually a Dons fan.

Well, if it's £94million over 4 years, that works at about £24million per year.

There are 52 weeks in a year, so dividing the £24million by 52 gives you £461,538.46 per week, which is 'roughly' £500,000 per week.

So no. Not a misprint.

He looks a decent player at times (eg against Scotland) but too often flatters to decieve or just doesn't turn up.  £500,000k per week or anything in that ball park is utter madness.

I never knew about this until a minute ago:

Quote
Further to an initial statement issued on Thursday 22nd July, Motherwell Football Club have today issued the following press release relating to the transfer of Paul Quinn to Cardiff City FC.

Cardiff City owe Motherwell Football Club £175,000 plus interest and costs for the transfer of Paul Quinn which took place in June 2009, almost 14 months ago.

Fully understanding their difficulties, the Board of Motherwell FC have pursued this claim firmly but courteously.

Having failed to receive a proper business like response, the Club eventually had no option but to pursue the matter in Hamilton Sheriff Court. The petition was considered on Friday yet Cardiff did not even turn up or submit a defence to our petition.

Commenting, Motherwell Chief Executive, Leeann Dempster, said: “It is critical that clubs work constructively with each other to ensure we can manage a very difficult financial climate for the game. We have given Cardiff every chance to do the right thing.

“The Board now believe that Cardiff’s position is untenable given their activity in the transfer market acquiring Jason Koumas, Tom Heaton, Danny Drinkwater, Seyi Olofinjana, Martin John and today, the loan signing of Manchester City’s Craig Bellamy.

“Given all these circumstances and with legal and moral weight behind us, Motherwell FC have no option but to immediately pursue all legal routes to ensure this significant sum is paid to us as quickly as possible.

“These may include issuing a winding up order, arresting assets or physically sending bailiffs to their ground on match day to take possession of cash. Every option will be fully considered and implemented as soon as possible.

“We want Cardiff fans to know that we appreciate the concerns this will give them. We can only urge them to look to how they would feel in our position and urge them to put pressure on their own Board to ensure the excellent long-term reputation of their club is not diminished by the leadership of one board.

“We have a job to promote and protect the interests of our own employees, fans and shareholders and we will. We would also suggest to the Championship and the English FA that they look with great care at the conduct of Cardiff in handling this matter.

“Even at this very late stage, I would urge Gethin Jenkins of Cardiff to pay this money plus costs and interest by return in order to save his club acute embarrassment and the football community in general unwarranted bad publicity”.

Motherwell have every right to proceed with further action

Emmanuel Adebayor has agreed to take a pay cut to join Real Madrid on loan from Manchester City, with what the Spanish club describe as a "unilateral option" of a £15m transfer at the end of the season.

However, the Spanish club are unlikely to want to be tied to anything more than a six-month contract. The deal is a victory for the Real coach, José Mourinho, who has persisted in his pursuit of a new striker despite resistance from the board.

"Real Madrid and Manchester City have reached a deal that will see Emmanuel Adebayor play on loan," said Real in a statement. "The player will remain at Real Madrid until the end of the current season, at which point the club hold a unilateral option to purchase the player."

The Spaniards have turned to Adebayor after being unable to persuade Hamburg to allow Ruud van Nistelrooy to return to the Bernabéu to fill in for the Argentinian Gonzalo Higuaín, who is out for up to four months with a back injury. Madrid also looked at signing the Germany striker Miroslav Klose but Adebayor's availability for the Champions League makes him a more attractive proposition.

I think he'll do quite well at Real.

 ;D  the Pienaar one kind of slipped under the radar for me.  I can see why he's the type of midfielder Redknapp wanted - tenacious, not bad with the ball at his feet but works for the team in a Jason Park type of way, however there is something about the player himself that makes me think he's making a mistake leaving Everton as he was a perfect fit for them and I think he may not be quite as effective for Spurs.

In saying that, I've also had a feeling Everton are a bit stale and need an overhaul, maybe this is the start of it ahead of the summer window?

His end product better improve, gets himself into some great positions but fails to deliver a lot of the time.  I think he can be an exciting player on his day, but consistency levels would have to step up now he's at United.

I think he may actually be played through the middle some of the time. Can't see him budging Valencia from the side and would imagine Nani would be picked ahead of him mostly as well.

Centre mid. would like Modric in there as he can go box to box as well as being a playmaker type (i.e. what we all used to call - remarkably enough - "a midfielder"). Don't see where Sneijder would fit in as he would occupy the same area of the pitch as Rooney when he drops back.

Yep modric is indeed what used to be called a central midfielder before everyone had to be either defensive or attacking (i blame the americans for this polarised view entering football, it all started after usa 94). Modric for me is easily the best midfielder in england and in perspective to the inflated transfer market easily worth 35-40 mill

I actually think it's a cop out when you class midfielders as one or the other. When I first heard it being used I just used to think "so he can't tackle and has no interest in running towards his own goal" or "he can't shoot or hit a long range pass, but can tackle and run about a lot".

No definitely a good idea in the lower leagues. Although not twitter, Martin Allen did a similar thing when he was at Cheltenham and was one of his few good ideas. Plenty of lower league fans are football fans first and foremost and will go watch the local non league sides rather than sit in watching the telly. One of my best friends rarely goes a night without taking in a match and I know of several others at Cheltenham who do similar. When you consider the average L2 club and most of L1 have virtually no budget for scouting and a lot use a company (I forget what it is called but I'm sure an ex-Cheltenham player is involved somewhere) to scout players. Is it too far removed to have knowledgeable fans doing the donkey work for free.

Villa sign Given, very astute signing in my opinion.

The Fiver's piece on Given going to Villa... have to say i agree with this and have always thought he could command his area better:

Quote
ANY GIVEN MONDAY
In his increasingly rare moments of clarity, the Fiver's drink-addled, pig-toting knobbly-stick-waving Irish cousin Theme Pub O'Fiver has a theory about Shay Given from the County Donegal. To borrow a phrase from his opinionated champagne-swilling brother in arms Eamon Dunphy, Theme Pub is prepared to concede that while Shay Given from the County Donegal is a good goalkeeper, he is not a great goalkeeper. It is a point of view that has earned poor auld Theme Pub the opprobrium and slaps of many compatriots who worship at the altar of St Shay of Given and will not hear a bad word said about the goalkeeper, who hails from the County Donegal.

What Theme Pub has noticed, albeit through half-open bloodshot eyes, is that Shay Given from the County Donegal has played behind some terrible defences in his time; terrible defences starring players who became a laughing stock when they played in front of Given, but strangely went on to resurrect their careers elsewhere, lining up in back fours that played in front of goalkeepers that conspicuously weren't Shay Given from the County Donegal. Yes, Titus Bramble the Fiver is looking at you. And you Fabricio Coloccini and Joleon Lescott ... the rest of you know who you are.

But while Given has been described by Roberto Mancini as "one of the five best goalkeepers in the world", he is not the best goalkeeper at Manchester City and has subsequently been shipped out. As is customary, no club that Jamie Redknapp would describe as "top top top top" has come in for him, so instead he has been sentenced to five years at Aston Villa for a fee believed to be in the region of £4m. It's a good bit of business for Villa, who have got themselves a goalie renowned as "a great shot-stopper", but whose ability to command his six-yard box is a mite questionable.

"Aston Villa is a huge football club and I'm really excited to be joining," said Given upon inking his contract, as you do. "I'm looking forward to training and playing with the players here. They're a good bunch of lads, very talented and I know several of them already which will help." Be afraid Richard Dunne and James Collins. Be very, very afraid. For that man in green anchored to his goalline not coming for that cross is Shay Given from the County Donegal.

Scotland B international Alan Gow is to join Indian I-League outfit Kingfisher East Bengal after a successful trial.

The 28-year-old forward was a free agent after being released by Notts County following six months at the League One club.

Gow's move to India will go through as soon as some visa issues are concluded.

East Bengal, who finished runners-up last season, become the eighth club for the player who had a particularly productive spell at Falkirk.

Before spending two seasons with the Bairns, Gow was with hometown club Clydebank and Airdrie United.

His form for Falkirk led to a move to Rangers, but he failed to become a first-team regular and had loan spells with Blackpool and Norwich City before joining Plymouth Argyle in 2009.

The Championship club farmed him out to Hibernian and he then began last season with Motherwell before joining County in January.

Sports journalism works a bit differently though. Managers, boards, agents and players constantly lie to the press meaning much of the stuff printed is utter charlie allen (even if there ARE quotes).

So on the one hand we have dishonesty and on the other we have no morals or ethics. Awesome.

But Mertesacker looked ok to me at the world cup, much better than what Arsenal have and there's no too many sprinters at CB. He's been bought primarily as a ball winner I'd have thought.

True but I was meaning more he was quick, built like a tank and liked going forward.  At full back he caused a lot of problems when he went on the overlap and had an alright cross.  Unfortunatley this was always tempered with the minimum 3 major fuck ups a game when  he was in (and i use this word loosely) position.  Moving him forward potentially could have been good for him.  Pointless speculation now

Manchester United and Wayne Rooney have been made aware of the theme of an article in tomorrow's Independent newspaper.
 
We have not seen the detail but can assure all United fans that the Manager and the Club are committed to Wayne Rooney and Wayne is committed to the Manager and the Club.
 
The player and the Manager have always had and retain the utmost respect for each other and look forward to working together in the coming seasons.

Calum Elliot has agreed a two-year contract with Lithuanian side VMFD Zalgiris.

As revealed last week by STV, the former Hearts striker will move to Vilnius on a free transfer, having turned down the opportunity of a trial spell with MLS side Houston Dynamo.

Elliot will travel to Lithuania on Thursday to conclude the deal. The 24-year-old was released from his contract at Hearts at the start of the transfer window, having scored 16 goals in 124 appearances for the Edinburgh club.

Zalgiris finished second in last season's Lithuanian top flight, finishing eight points behind champions Ekranas. The club will participate in next season's Europa League, entering in the first qualifying round.

Elliot's last competitive appearance came during a loan spell with Dundee, where he failed to find the net in six games.

The former Scotland Under-21 international has also had spells on loan at Motherwell and Livingston in his career, scoring two and 11 goals respectively.

“Everything has been agreed,” Elliot told the Scotsman of the move. “I’m delighted and it’s obviously a big move for me. The longer you go without a club the more you worry.

“You could say it’s a step into the unknown so there’s an element of trepidation. But I phoned Marius Zaliukas, who I’m friendly with from my time at Hearts.

"He says Vilnius is an ideal place to live in, so it helped put my mind at rest a bit.”

Mark Kerr has agreed to join Dunfermline Athletic until the end of the season.

The former Falkirk, Dundee United and Aberdeen midfielder has been training with Jim McIntyre’s side recently, having left Greek club Asteras Tripolis.

Kerr, 29, left Scotland in June 2010 and will have to wait on international clearance before being available to resume his career in his homeland.

"We are signing a player of real quality who will give us real energy in the middle of the park," Pars boss Jim McIntyre told the club’s official website.

“He is a box to box midfielder, he can play the holding role or an attacking midfielder role. So he gives us good options."

Kerr played 397 times during 12 years in Scotland, spending five years with Falkirk and Dundee United respectively, before two seasons with Aberdeen.

I see Falkirk have sold two lads for 6 figure sums, one for £700,000!!

Quote
Huddersfield have signed centre-half Murray Wallace and striker Kallum Higginbotham from Scottish First Division side Falkirk.

Wallace, 19, made his Bairns debut in August and has since made 22 starts for Steven Pressley's side.

The initial fee is £300,000 rising to £700,000 and he will play for Falkirk on loan until the end of the season.

Higginbotham, 22, began his career at Oldham and moves from Falkirk for what the Bairns say is a "six-figure sum".

His deal at Huddersfield does not involve a loan back to the club.


Anyone got a team by team list of transfers?  All Good Morning Scotland talked about was Jalavic and folk that celtic didn't sign

Agreed. Defoe is a better player and even he doesn't get a game.

Don't agree. Defoe isn't a better player than Saha. If you keep Saha fit (a big if, for sure) he can get you any type of goal; headers, long range, poacher-type goals... superb in the air, quick and is a brilliant link up player.  Defoe is a good player and one I've always liked but he doesn't have the all-round game Saha does.  Maybe Saha's injuries have caught up with him as he has been off the boil at Everton so far this season, but he definitely benefits playing in a team who like to get the ball wide, as Spurs do.

Back-up to one of the aging epl goalies I'd guess.

Why?

Reliable, good goalie, free and probably reasonable wage demands, and if he only makes say 6-10 appearances unlikely to be as injury prone.

Or maybe a target for one of the promoted sides?

Riordan is on trial at a few la Liga sides  :o

Quote
Derek Riordan could be perfect for the glamorous Spanish La Liga, provided he gets fit and re-discovers his hunger for goalscoring.

The first time I read that Riordan will have a trial at a La Liga club I felt shocked, but after thinking about it more calmly I thought that it could probably be the perfect place for a footballer like Riordan.

He is not the classic Scottish striker - big and strong in attacking long balls. He can link up properly with his strike partners.

The most important thing for Riordan is to have a strong character - sometimes his is too strong. Character will be essential to help his club reach its goals, which will surely be to avoid relegation.

There are some clubs that might want Riordan in their squad, all smaller clubs who needs a known forward with little money.

Teams like the newly-promoted Real Valladolid, Real Zaragoza or Rayo Vallecano, a smaller club in the outskirts of Madrid where Riordan might be an idol for his rebellious attitude, and Levante could be his destination.

Of course, to win an opportunity in La Liga, Riordan will need to improve his fitness, probably lost after his last year between China and the few weeks at St Johnstone.

He should know that this is his last great opportunity in a European top flight team and if he takes it he could have a good contract after some bad years.

Aye think it's just a loan move. Would be a good move for both parties IMO. Kaka gets a new environment and more possibility of playing time and recapturing the form that made him World Player of the Year and Man United get a world class midfielder they have been crying out for, for the past few seasons.

Agreed GS, Rhodes could probably have got a game for a more stable EPL team, let alone one that lurched from one fuck up to another with some pretty fickle fans.

Berbatov heading to Fulham too, could be a good bit of business for Jol.
Title: Re: Summer Transfer Window 2012 (non AFC)
Post by: RDU_64 on August 30, 2012, 08:11:27 PM
Aye, I find Rhodes's move to Blackburn very strange and a bit disappointing to be honest. Another good season at Championship level and more Premiership teams would surely have been taking notice of him. Exactly TF, I wouldn't touch Blackburn with a barge pole if I was Rhodes. Terrible owners, terrible manager, relegated, fans revolting against the whole club and all this whilst attempting to win the Championship. Not the best for an up and coming striker.

Also, another strange transfer is Scott Sinclair. Well not so strange, given the fact that it will significantly increase his weekly wage, but I mean, does he really expect to play? Does he really expect to get a regular game? City have just sold Adam Johnson, a very good player IMO and one that is definitely worthy of being a first team regular in just about every other Premier League team. You would think that would be some kind of warning sign to the boy. Swansea seems to be a really good club with a good chairman, seemingly good managerial appointments and play football in a very-pleasing-on-the-eye style. He has left Chelsea earlier on his career in order to get first team football and I would imagine Sinclair will be doing the same again in 6/12/18 months.

Joe Cole away to West Ham and pool are paying 50k of his wages or summingk like that. who makes the decisions at anfield? this and andy carrol make em seem totally brain-dead sometimes.

quite like sturridge tho tbf.


Damien Comolli.  :hammer:

This useless cunt paid in the region of £75m for Downing, Carroll and Henderson and gave them mental wages. TBF be fair to the current staff at Liverpool who is going to take Cole for £80k a week? No one. So either have him in the reserves and pay all his wages or let him play for another club and save almost £2.5m for the duration of his deal. No wonder the guy got the dunt.

Motherwell sign Huddersfield Town forward Kallum Higginbotham on loan until the end of the season. The 23-year old told the club's website: "Things haven't quite worked out as well as I would have liked at Huddersfield but with 18 months left on my deal there, this is a great opportunity to show what I can do at a great club in a strong, competitive league."

Are you listening Master Fraser?

Baffles me. I'm sure it will happen. If he's going for £8.2m I'm gutted that Liverpool aren't all over that. Seems odd. Hasn't played for Inter for months because he rejected a hefty wage cut. Why Inter wanted to force him out I don't know. Absolutely cracking player.

Think Inter are serious financial trouble so possible they need him out to get money in and also reduce the wages bill.

Not sure what's going on here. He probably would have settled for what he was on at Inter and in England there are several clubs that can pay that. He clearly didn't want to move to Gala and I'm really frustrated that Liverpool didn't go for him.

He's a winger so I imagine he'll be competition for Nani / Valencia.  Very exciting player and can certainly get passed players.  Not sure if they need a CM.  Cleverly seems to have come on leaps and bounds over the past few months and Carrick seems to be showing the form he was signed for.

Completely agree. The boy Butland is a good goalkeeper and this is a very good move by Stoke; I imagine all the big teams will be in for Begovic in the summer and it'll inflate his fee a bit.  Langfield plus cash will do me...

The former Everton player sealed a return to his first club Motherwell on Monday but Brown admitted he tried everything he could to persuade the 29-year-old to move to  Pittodrie.
Aberdeen’s vice-chairman George Yule had arranged to meet  McFadden, capped 48 times by Scotland, and his representatives in Glasgow yesterday, but the player opted to sign for the Steelmen instead.

Midfielder David Wotherspoon has signed a two-year deal with hometown club St Johnstone following his release from Scottish top flight rivals Hibernian.
    The 23-year-old moved to Easter Road in 2007, having been with Saints and Celtic as a youth.
    He made a scoring debut for Hibs in 2009 and was rewarded with a four-year contract later that year.
    The former Scotland Under-21 international scored four goals in 38 appearances last season.

Goodwillie back to the arabs on loan
Quote
    Scotland striker David Goodwillie is returning to Dundee United on a six-month loan from Blackburn Rovers.
    The 24-year-old scored 40 goals in 136 games for United before moving to Ewood Park in a £2m switch in August 2011.
    But Goodwillie made just 10 starts for Rovers last season and endured an unhappy loan stint at Crystal Palace.
    "I am striving to improve Dundee United in both the short and long term and adding a player of David's quality will help," said manager Jackie McNamara.

Seem to be creaming themselves about the "signing" of Goodwillie.
Have I missed something here, thought he was only on a six month loan.
Reckon it'll take more than that to replace the quality they've lost over the summer. Perhaps the couple of trialists from English football's SIXTH tier and the striker who has scored one goal in 35 games can do it for them ;)

Precisely, national bias aside, the confederations cup showed us exactly what he we knew he was capable of.  Hopefully he just needed a season to bed in at United and Moyes uses him correctly.


Regards to Fellaini, i could easily see him at Chelsea, suits his style of play.

I am perplexed, Kow. Perplexed that Arsenal are suddenly going after ready-made players that cost money. That's not been their style. Why any team wouldn't want Suarez is beyond me. Why yous can't figure that out is beyond me too. Aye ok, there's a mean streak to him that will see him pick up suspensions now and again but for the love of fuck, what a player the man is. I'm absolutely gutted that he wants to go to Arsenal also delighted that Liverpool aren't letting themselves get bent over just because the player wants to leave and are holding out for a value that suits them as they are entitled to do. And I can see their logic. Cavani just went for £55m. He isn't a better player than Suarez. Suarez is worth the same (if not more) to Liverpool was when Torres left and he went for £50m. If any club really wants him they'll have to break the bank. Even with £50m in their hipper Liverpool would not be able to find a replacement of anywhere near the same ability. I hope this helps yous understand why clubs want him.
Title: Re: Summer Transfer Window 2013 (non AFC)

Given all the suspensions he gets, his value should be lower than other decent strikers.  Liverpool should be biting Arsenal's hand off as CtS says.

Nah. You, sir, have been listing to the hype machine. Karl Henry and to a lesser extent Joey Barton are genuine filthy cunts. Thugs. They have both tried their best to inflict serious injury upon fellow pros and have succeeded in some cases. Battering teenagers in the street and breaking the legs of fellow players, in my opinion, is lower than a half-hearted bite.

The player is worth more than £40m to Liverpool. Suspensions or not. Fair play to them I say.

Much as you'd think they'd be getting some decent players in you can't get past the previous business models and more so than ever they can skate the league.

It'd be better all round if they bought the best going in Scotland for decent money, spreading the wealth, but they don't.

I think it could well be about the French tax system, obviously the tax situation in Monaco is pretty lax but I'm sure I read that AS Monaco would have to abide by the French tax system if they wanted to play in the French league. 

Assume they gave Falcao an astronomical wage based on not paying much tax and cant afford to increase it to ensure he takes home the same pay.

Still a strange situation!

Barry's a good guy, hope he does well too.
Falcao - Personally reckon that he's realised Monaco is a fucking shithole. But supposedly he's saying that promises on the "Monaco Project" have been broken ergo it's a breach of contract. In saying that, he played and scored today so not sure how accurate those reports are.

So did some footballers agree to go and football at some football teams?

Don't know about anyone else, but I couldn't care less about how disruptive the transfer windows are, I'm mainly just fucked off with how mind numbingly boring they make everything.

Last few years of Fabreghas/Bale etc unending masturbation has been bad enough, but a club like us should be able to do a deal whenever we can manufacture one to happen. We can't compete for bargains in a tiny window where hundreds of other clubs are also aggressively competing.

The whole thing's a total piss take. It's all designed for morons to sit and get a semi when men in suits talk about multi-million £ deals.

If it wasn't for foreign football there's no way I'd have the patience to watch anything in the UK anymore on the off chance it might become interesting again. Every facet of it on the pitch and off is stale garbage. At least in Scotland it's inexpensive stale garbage compared to England, but the price they charge on the gate is hardly cheap.

If it wasn't for tranny windows I'm not sure it'd all annoy me so much at this time of the year. But here we are, however many seasons in a row and we don't have the players to fill 11 first team jerseys in all required positions. And that's the tranny window shut, so the only chance we have of rectifying that is waiting on someone being released from jail and available on a free. Amazing.

I still don't get why the transfer window closes after the season has started?
 
Who benefits from that other than the rich clubs?
 
Teams set out their stall for the upcoming season and then as they're off and running their best players are yanked out of the club and whisked off.
 
Makes no sense to me.

I was saying the other day (although I can't remember who to. Maybe myself?) that a transfer fee in the region of £25m - £30m would usually mean one of the world's top players was moving but these days this price tag is almost the norm and poorer and poorer players are going for silly sums. Don't get me wrong. I'm a fan of Fellaini and I do rate him but not for the guts of £30m. Then again if Bale is worth £85m (and he isn't) then maybe Fellaini is worth £28m (and he isn't).

Are you not aware that he's brilliant footballer? ??? You act as if the bitey side of him is all we ever see. He'd walk into any team in the world bar none. That's why clubs appear to be willing to give him more chances than he maybe deserves. That's why Barcelona still want him. And with players like Neymar and Messi they can probably afford the risk of him being banned more than other clubs.

Plus I'm sure they see an opportunity to get him for half of what he was worth a week ago.

Brilliant footballer is one thing

Brilliant footballer who you have to pay despite him not being allowed anywhere near your stadium or training facilities for the entire pre-season and first couple of months of the new season is another

Particularly if your team hits the ground running and go several points clear only for boardroom pressure to dictate you throw him straight into the team  as soon as he is available thereby upsetting the dressing room when an unprepared and non match fit liability upsets the balance.

Has any of these teams said 'we want him and if Liverpool sell up we are going to spend a piece of the cash we saved on the transfer fee sending him on a 3month session with several psychologists to find out what exactly makes him do these stupid things and actually help him?'

His last match before England was on May 11th - A mere 6 weeks during which he was training (or at least had the option of) with his national squad and/ or Liverpool.

His next match wont be until the end of October - A Mere 17 weeks during which time he is banned from training with any team and isnt even allowed into Anfield (or whereever he ends up) to take a piss.

Cantona & Ferdinand got 8 & 9 months but were still allowed to train with Man United and go into old Trafford.

The playing ban is irrelevant compared to the ban on ALL football activity. It is effectively solitary football solitary confinement.

Doesn't matter how good you are, that is going to affect you.

Maybe so. But it's looking less and less likely that it will be Liverpool's problem.

The 4 month ban from playing is one thing. And can't really be argued. But the ban from training with your team? That's why some people are saying it's harsh.

Great move for Man U IF they keep De Gea too, would really push De Gea to keep up his impressive form so far this season and provide a great back up for the times that De Gea is rested/out of form.

However, BBC Scotland has learned that the SPFL will stick with tradition and allocate that end of the ground to Celtic fans.

That's not a bad move for him actually, he should get plenty games for them you would think but only warm a bench at best for AFCB.  He didn't play enough last season and ipswich will likely challenge for the play offs so its a decent side for him to go and try to improve.  This is a big season for Fraser IMO, if he doesn't get more game time now then his career has hugely stalled at a crucial part of his previously promising career.

It seems to have gone under the radar a bit but Ross County signed Andrew Davies at the same time as the signed Foster.

Davies was formerly a million pound player, an England u21 with bags of Premiership and Championship experience.  Previously at Boro, QPR, Southampton, Derby, Stoke and Palace, as well as a few others.  He's managed about 30 games a year for the last three years at Bradford so he's nae exactly constantly injured either, despite a few fitness issues.  Still only 30 too.  Could easy be the signing of the summer.

I remember him being asked by a journo about being overlooked for Scotland because he apparently can't play as a lone striker as he isn't very mobile outside the box. He just replied that he played that role for over 100 games for Blackburn and had score over 50 goals that point. (This was prior to season when Rhodes played alongside Gestede when Blackburn went with 2 upfront.)

On another note Blackburn will be f**ked in terms of getting into the play-offs if we do let Rhodes go IMO.

This will just be a highest bidder scenario.  Sheff Wed will send him to whoever will pay the biggest chunk of his wages.  If he's on the reported 8k, I canna see us paying more than 50% absolute max.  I think others will have deeper pockets.  If we canna compete for May, move quickly for McKay.

Aye but Pogba probably was a lot more shite back then than he is now? If he's demanding to play fitba and he's not ready for the United first team back then then what choice do United have but to sell him? Same with Kevin De Bruyne at Chelsea. The clubs get a lot of criticism for selling them and then buying them back after they've developed for a lot more cash but again if the players are demanding to play first team football/leave then what can they do?

Cracking business for Juve and Wolfsburg respectively. Bottom line is that Chelsea and Man Utd can afford these mental fees.

A lot has been said about the fee for Pogba (and it is an obscene amount of money), but the fee Juve have paid for Higuain is even more bonkers. 28 years old, no potential re-sale, £75m.  Undoubtedly a good player, but Pogba has the potential to be the best midfielder in the world, Higuain won't be the best striker in the world now.

United reckon Pogba will make them £40m in his first season alone....should just about cover his first month's wages...  ::)

Agree. I went to the Emirates once - we got tickets 5 minutes before kick off from a couple of guys outside the ground - and in the "Platinum Club", there were all these guys in ties and pink shirts etc. Having been to the old Highbury, it had a great feel about it, pints could be bought at the back of the North Stand, proper football men but these Emirates cunts paying £6.5k for their season tickets (free booze at HT - I managed 3 pints for the record) knew FUCK ALL about the game.

Anyway, the spending in England made the BBC Scotland news ahead of the dons new signing (as did Utd signing Andreu for some reason). I would have thought that listing all the Scottish deadline day transfers would have been quite easy, and relegate this EPL pish to the bottom of the website somewhere. It's like we're supposed to be impressed by big numbers. I see the EPL like a spoiled child that should just be ignored.

Aye, I get what he was saying. All I meant was that there was no longer the working class fan to sell the game to, it doesn't have to be their target market. How else can people not be horrified by someone getting paid £300K a week to play football? Rather, it's seen as something admirable.

For me it's all about the critical mass. Football used to be accessible by everyone. Now, particularly in Engerlund, you need to be earning good dough to be able to afford a season ticket. If we make it so that the game is only accessed by a certain demographic, we cut deeply and adversely into the grass roots potential. Sure the fat thick cunt could save money by quitting fags and stop buying tabloids and go easy on the takeaway junk food and cutting back on his horrendous alcohol intake to be able to afford to get him and his sons a ST, but that's just who he is.

Agree that their target market is money. My point is that in doing so - and particularly when the football administrators are absolutely inept quango types* - they alienate the total potential market and total potential players to come through.

* A boss of mine once gave me a directive before advertising for a management position. "If he's ever worked in the public sector, or has a wife or parents that works in the public sector, or even if he's just walked past a public sector building, don't interview the cunt".

The reason I said "particularly in England" was that if the ST demographic has changed then the less affluent will be lesser represented. Historically, footballers were generally from the lower half of the socio-economic scale. Exactly 50% of the population is in the "lower half" of course but an examination of the "classes" (when there were such things) from where footballers came from was vast majority "working", some "middle" and very few if any "upper". Let's not get into pedantic counters about the working class being more than 50% of the population at one time, before gradual, and then dramatic increases in the middle class aspiring wannabe proportion. Let's stick to the line of argument and see the picture without having to spell it all out.

On an aside, interesting that Jock Stein hated the dentist Lisbon Lion, the only one who wasn't "real working class", the only one who he couldn't bully, the only one who wasn't intimidated by him, the one who was more intelligent than him. It was said that Stein "never trusted him" but the truth was that Stein knew his own limitations and didn't want to get found out. Parallels in certain respects can be drawn from his protege and mentee, Sir Alex Ferguson.

There are many other contributory reasons why football is suffering, all of which should have been tracked, monitored and known about over the decades by the administrators but in Ernie Walker, Jim Farrell etc. and the current balloons, you're never going to get anything but self-interest and gravy-training. Innovative thinking and even seeing what's going on are functions well beyond them.

I don't think that Scottish Football price admissions are generally prohibitive. I do think that they are in England. There will be a bigger socio-economic divide in the EPL stadia tan in this country at the expense of the less affluent.

We're facing difficult times simply because the grass roots has been neglected. That programme I saw the other day about the football club that opened 30 years ago and has bred Woodgate, Downing and many other inc. current Middlesboro players was heart-warming. That was a private initiative, fuck all to do with the FA or owt.

The biggest problem is that the clubs, indeed the whole game isn't thinking long term and part of that will undoubtedly be related to what it costs to be a fan.

What in the world of fuck? £1M? The boy is fucking atrocious. He's basically Storey, a total headless chicken with nae skill whatsoever but a bit of strength and pace. They (Ipswich) also signed Garner. There must be some sort of hun-based conspiracy going on there, there's no way any club would pay money for those pair of cunts.

Found the fee for Waghorn incredible for a guy in the final year of a contract (who has performed as badly recently).

Took a quick shufty on sevco media and they're saying that its bullcrap, the fee is around 250k. I'd still say they've overpaid but apparently Waghorn once went for £3million from Sunderland to Leicester.

Probably see sevco now bump up their bid for Walker to about 750k, Fartz would be mad not to accept. I hope to hell we get Moult in the next couple of days because I can see sevco targetting him too once they get the Walker deal over the line...

I'll always remember Waghorn for that time they were getting roundly pumped off the Tims at Hampden and he tried to control the ball on the touchline, completely unmarked, stumbled, hoofed it out of play and fell over.  Utter fucking jobber. 

I've a pal that supports Ipswich Town and he's all excited that they're getting another top class player off of Sevco, especially after Garner got the winner for them at the weekend.  Oofya.  Also from what he tells me about their financial circumstances, I would be inclined to view the million quid rumour as utter horseshit.  Daily Record fabricated pish IMO.

750k bid turned down earlier in the week, popcorn teeth called it derisory.To be honest I have to agree....he will replace Darren Fletcher long term in the scotland team.  I reckon they'll need to double it to get him.

According to Sportsound last saturday of that £750K hibs would only see about £500k as the rest would be heading to St Mirren.

Particular favourites are the Jamie Walker thread.....that walking talking nocturnal emission King Kirk assures the orc hordes that Fartz will buckle in the last hour of the window and theyll get him for 500k or less (so get your cash on him signing for the dhims any minute, everything King Kirk touches turns immediately to a mammoth dungheap).....
 And then an unexpected ( actually no its very expected from these deluded self important phannies) late entry...the Fabian Delph thread. Excuse me whilst I nip out for an emergency packet of tenaman pads...

Yep, he's a cracking player. Unfortunately - for us - they still have a big hold on players in this country through supporting them as a youngster. Obviously they'll be paying him a wedge as well, but the move is helped along by his childhood allegiances. It'd be interesting to see the stats on young kids coming (have come) through the ranks over the last decade and who they supported. I reckon you'd be 30+% hun.

Has either club officially mentioned that figure or has it likely been "let slip" by huns to appease their followers.

Sevco have an exceptional record of signing up highly rated players who you'd think would do well for them only for them to do the square root of feck all but cost them a fortune (Templeton, O'Halloran just a couple off the top of my head), here's hoping Murphy falls into that category!

£142m for Coutinho, a) I don't think he's worth it and b) when / how will it stop?  Surely these fees cannot continue to increase?  He's a very good player, but fuck me, no cunt is worth that much.

He started on fire but his performances tailed off and in the last 2 months of his loan he was mainly used as an impact sub......but had very little impact. I really wasn't all that fussed when Norwich took him back in the January.

Can't say I've seen his performances since though obviously he has been mentioned a fair bit in the press recently. I hope he has filled out in the past year, always felt that he was too slightly built to have any chance of really hitting the big time.

Same for me. Nothing about his ability - he clearly has a lot of talent, but I just don't think he suited our style; we always wanted to keep the ball moving and have the early pass played, he always wanted to hold on to it.  Good luck to him though, I hope he goes far.

It doesn't matter what the bid is what they hope to achieve is turning the players head in the hope that they try and force a move through, then we hear the usual shyte of them supporting them since he was a boy. The good thing is nowadays is that players are beginning to see moving to either of the bigot brothers isn't quite the dream move they may once have thought.

What makes you say that players are starting to think a move to the old firm isn’t that good? Jack just did it, the boy from St Mirren did too. Totally think Christie wants to be back at Celtic even though I see him having a similar impact to Jonny Hayes. Sadly they are both still a huge attraction and in Rangers case in particular, despite all of what they have been through.

A director loan of £190000 would cover the £10k p/w part of his wages till the end of May, then said director could convert said loan to equity at a later date (or be repaid once season ticket money for next season has come in).

Aye noticed yesterday someone on twitter pointing out there were two teams in china with Gwangzhou in their name and both had their limit of overseas players; so the hun media have changed the team who are bidding this morning...

Arseholes, complicit aresholes...

Best thing is, this rather transparent fantasy, designed to both inflate Morelos's value and imply the club is so financially solvent they can turn such offers down, appears to have only pissed off Murty and massively unsettled Morelos:

Quote from: Murty in a paper I will not link to
"We can definitely improve him and I don’t think agents and media and all this kind of stuff helps him because we’ve got a confused young man who sees astronomical figures thrown at him.

"And it’s nothing to do with the player - he's just confused and sees an opportunity of taking care of his family for a very long time.

"I’m not sure how much of it was substantially there for him.

Even funnier thing is, I read yesterday in an unrelated article (it was about Oscar’s move last January) that Chinese clubs must now pay 100% tax on signings, hence the apparent slow down in that market. Effectively £16 million.

If he's in control of his demons then he's the best centre half in Scotland by a million miles and an incredible signing by Dundee. Unfortunately, the fact he's signed for Dundee is probably a reflection of the faith managers in the championship down south have in him being in control. Hope I'm wrong and that he has a great end to the season, followed by a summer move to Pittodrie  :thumbsup:

Hibs are signing a fair few players most of which have had an immediate impact.

Who have they actually signed that wasn't already there? Mallan*?

Has Mallan had more of an impact than Ferguson? Devlin**? Arguable. What about the rest of their signings? We've had two successful signings, one who looks an upgrade on O'Connor (Hoban) and two questionable in Gleeson and Forrester. Above 50% is decent for us I'd say.

*I think Mallan is a good player who I'd be surprised if we weren't in for. That said, he probably wasn't in a priority area for us and not an area where we'd have wanted to spend a large part of our budget which we seem to be saving for the elusive striker.

**I'm including Devlin as one of this seasons signings as it was clear he was going to be out for last season.

Okay, so Kamberi for Devlin then. Both equally as important and equally as likely to have an impact. Ferguson cancels out Mallan and Ball cancels out MacLaren (both average returning players). So we're left with:

Bogdan, Hyndman an Agyepong versus Hoban, Gleeson, Forrester and Cerny. I've no idea who's best from that bunch (although Bogdan clearly strengthens them whereas Cerny was only ever a backup).

I'd say it's about even and I expect neither team is finished. They desperately need a centre mid and we desperately need a striker. It'll certainly be an interesting match up when we face them. I also see your point to an extent because they've signed a striker and a decent forward player whereas we've not managed to land a striker. We should at least give McInnes until the end of the window before being too harsh though. A hell of a lot riding on our striker signing I'd say, and I expect McInnes is well aware of that.

McLaren I think is better than Kamberi. 6 full Aussie caps and was in their World Cup squad. So not really on the same level as Ball

Edit.....And now Lennon has around £1.85million or so if my maths are correct from the sale of McGinn. Even if he is only given half that its still about twice what we have to improve our squad. He's got his front line sorted, defence looks ok so its his midfield I'd guess they want to improve. There are more midfielders around than anyone else so with his budget I think he will. We have £500k to get us a decent striker. NOT convinced we will get a good 'un

I thought MacLaren looked pap against us, and Kamberi was decent. Aussie caps are not widely relevant in my books. I call it the Zdrilic effect.

We have £1M of DNA scam money to spend. We're about even in that regard. Although you're right about midfielders being more widely available. I think we'll struggle to get a striker better than Kamberi for £500K.

Some folk somewhere - I canna mine (maybe TC on here?) - were suggesting that we had a 22.5% sell-on clause. That'd be some fuckin deal if so, but I doubt it. What sort of figure do they pay for the likes of Fraser doon Sooth? Must be near £20M given he starts every week (I think)? Even at 10% it wouldn't surprise me if we end up getting more for Fraser than we do for McKenna.

Yes and yes. Tierney is already a very good player, who will only get better with the experience of training and playing at a higher standard than he currently does. If Palace are looking for £40m plus for a 20yo right back who has only played one season in the first team then £25m for Tierney isn’t unreasonable. Celtic don’t need to sell him and he doesn’t appear to be in a rush to leave so they can ask whatever they like for him.
Title: Re: Other Transfer News

Definitely good enough, just not quite as good as Robertson. Typical Scotland to have 2 world class players at the same time for the first time in decades and both play the same feckin position...

And £15 million is a joke. Robertson is reckoned to be valued at £60-80 million now.....Tierney is certainly worth half that

I hope you are right wee toon, always like to see Scots going south and doing well.  I guess the difference with the guy at Palace is he has already proven he can play at that level whereas Tierney is largely unproven at the very top level except for a handful of Champions League games.  Just thinking that since the top six in England became mega rich and able to afford anyone in the world we have probably only had Robertson playing for one of them, no other Scots I can think of have nailed down a first team place on a regular basis at a top six team in England really in the last five or six years.
Title: Re: Other Transfer News
Post by: KennyFuckinPowers on June 24, 2019, 04:34:45 PM
He's proven to be a decent SPFL full back, nothing more. Robertson is streets ahead of him, as is the likes of Danny Rose, Lucas Digne, Marcos Alonso, Ryan Bertrand etc... This is typical bollocks surrounding The Tims and their massively overrated wankers ( See Scott Brown ) The likes of McFadden saying he's in the top 2 Left Backs in Britain, if not Europe, and Bonner saying Arsenal are not big enough for him, fuck right off.

They should have bitten Arsenal's hands off for that 15 Million, he's a good age, yes, he can improve under different training regimes and playing against a higher standard of opposition ( Although he may also struggle? ) But I absolutely guarantee you, Max Lowe, even the lad Greg Taylor at Kilmarnock, would have the same impact on Celtic's team if they were to replace Tierney.

Title: Re: Other Transfer News
Post by: Ten Caat on June 24, 2019, 05:06:31 PM
Don't agree that Robertson is streets ahead but is the better overall of the 2. As a pure defender, Tierney edges it...and gives an option of covering left centre back in emergency that Robertson doesn't.

As an attacking full back Robertson has the edge and is quicker over the ground. As I've said before....Robertson's value is estimated now at £60millon or so. If Tierney was at a club in the EPL of a similar level as Celtic...maybe Wolves or West Ham.....he'd be worth at least £25-£30million. I don't think Celtic will get that purely because they're Scottish but I think they're correct to reject £15million. Probably they'll bite at £20millon

Robertson earned his move to a Club like Liverpool by going to Hull City if I remember correctly, playing and proving that he can play, against far superior players than we have up here, 2 seasons of Premier League and a season in the Championship, where he played over 90 matches. He's now Scotland's Captain, Liverpool's 1st Choice Left Back, a Premier League Runner Up and a Champions League Winner, he's only 25 years old. That's why he is worth that figure. He is absolutely streets ahead of Kieran Tierney, who is only 3 years younger and done nothing apart from play in a Domestic League utterly dominated by Celtic.

Like I said, there's potential there given that he may well improve the way Robertson improved, because let's not forget that Robertson wasn't playing initially as Klopp didn't think he was ready, but right now, he's a Bournemouth/Burnley Left Back at best.

Ben Chilwell is Leicester's Left Back, Tierney won't be played ahead of him, Napoli have Marco Rui, who is the Portugal Left Back, he's not going to play ahead of him either.

Arsenal I can understand, Monreal ageing and Kolasinac isn't really that good, but he wouldn't walk into their team, and yes Paki Bonnar, they're more than big enough for him you fucking balloon.

I'm not disputing his potential TC, but I will not buy into the " He's worth 25 million, he's more than good enough etc... " he's far from it. If the likes of Bournemouth, Burnley or a Brighton, took a punt on him between 8-15 Million, and he was successful, then I understand a bigger club going in for him, but as it stands, on the basis of what exactly? Does he merit a 25 million pound price tag, and the possibility that Arsenal are not a big enough Club for him?

At least with Robertson, we saw he was more than capable of stepping up after his successful stint at Hull City, in the Premier League. Even then, it took him a while to step up.

And lets see how concrete any interest is, Leicester obviously being linked due to the Rogers connection, probably fuck all in that one.

I disagree, for reasons I stated earlier. If Tierney was at Leicester or Burnley and doing well, his price tag would be £50m or £60m when the big guys come calling like the guy Wan-Bissaka that Man U are paying Palace £50m for. It doesn't seem unrealistic to me that to buy a player from Celtic, with international and Champions League experience in addition to whatever talents he has, should cost a decent whack.

And to suggest Tierney is just a decent SPFL full back is petty in the extreme.

But he's not playing for Leicester or Burnley, and doing well, is he? The boy Wan Bissaka was put in and proved he's capable, I am not for one minute suggesting that he's worth the price tag they're throwing about for him either, that's English football though. I didn't see any noticeable difference between Max Lowe, in the short time we had him and seen him, than I saw in Tierney in the lengthy time I have seen him. Both athletic, like to get up and down the wing and both relatively quick, although I'd say Lowe was quicker, is Lowe worth the same as Tierney based on that?

I haven't disputed his potential have I?, given he's only 22, I have disputed that he hasn't shown anything other than being a decent SPFL Full Back, don't see what's petty there? How has he proved he's anything other than a decent SPFL Full Back? Tavernier has scored a fair whack of goals, up there in the assists and is also quick, athletic etc... He's a better player than Tierney FFS, what is he worth?

No denying his attacking qualities and for sure if he had a Scottish granny would be our first choice international right back but Tierney is just better overall in the same way that Robertson is better than Tierney

He scored 14 goals, assisted 14 goals and was part of a defence that conceded 27 goals in 38 games. Not bad for a full back. 9 Goals and double figure assists the season before that. He was atrocious defensively last season, but he improved on that this season. Only him & that tit Goldson were the mainstays in their back 4, LB & other CB were rotated numerous times.

I will say it again, I am not disputing that Tierney could go on and play at a higher standard, I am saying from what I have seen of him, in the 4-5 seasons he's been around, he's not much to write home about, good young Scottish full back, part of a dominating Celtic team, domestically, yet when in Europe, don't fair too well, a higher standard of opposition, which is natural, we'd struggle as well. I have seen nothing to suggest he's worth 25 Million and certainly seen nothing to suggest he's good enough to play in an Arsenal team, again, maybe earn stripes at a Burnley, Brighton etc... first.

That’s my point tho, if he establishes himself at Burnley then one of the big guns would have to pay £50m for him, so why should Celtic settle for a tenth of that from the same team? Fair enough you don’t rate him but he’s easily the best prospect in Scottish football at the moment and arsenal wouldn’t be in for him if they thought he was only as good as Tavernier or Taylor. Check how many tavernier goals were penalties btw.

It really does boggle my mind at how little people understand about how transfers work.

The remaining value of the players contract always plays a big part in figuring out the players worth.  At the moment for tierney I would guesstimate that it's 5 mill.  From that point of view 15 isn't so bad but I can understand why they said no.  If he goes it will be for between 20 and 25 most likely unless someone REALLY wants him.

Where have I stated that I don't rate him? Please point that out. I don't buy into the sycophancy around someone who hasn't proved anything outside of Domestic Football in Scotland, and again, IF he went to Burnley then established himself, he'd have shown by then he's capable of the far superior demand of the Premier League, as it stands, he hasn't.

Not at any point have I said I didn't rate him, he's the best Left Back in Scotland, that doesn't mean he's automatically worth 25 Million, or that Arsenal " Might not be big enough for him " that's just fucking lunacy on both parts. And he's not even in the top 10 LB's in Europe, referencing McFadden's comment that he's in the top 2  in Britain, if not Europe.

If they did sell him, and they replaced him with Max Lowe, I guarantee you that Lowe would make the exact same impact, if not better.

Looking at his scoring record over the last three years, I'd suggest it's far worse than Curtis Main's

Think it’s a bit misleading as fair number of his games are as substitute so goals to 90 minutes played is 1 in 3. Have To say when I have seen him play he has not impressed. Mind you neither has Main.

Dom Ball signs for QPR.

Fair play to the guy that is a decent enough sized club to be joining, but I didn't expect a player who couldn't get a game for Rotherham in the Championship to be signing for another Championship club, even more so a club who I would say are bigger with greater expectations.

Good luck to him.

Ball was signed on loan for sevco by the breadman and possibly also knew him from his time as a youth player at Watford. So Warburton obviously agrees with DM here.....he's a valuable, versatile addition to a squad. Obviously his face just didn't fit at Rotherham. It happens. Remember the greatest manager in the history of football was once fired by St Mirren....

Hibs have signed midfielder Josh Vela from Bolton on a three year deal. Immediately being hailed by their fans as much better than Ojo because they are not bitter about Ojo picking us over them. Not in the slightest.

Sevco claiming the story is coming from Morelos' representatives

Slippy was apparently furious at his presser earlier.....got irritated at the journos all questioning him about it and said he would try to get Morelos out in person so he could answer. Looks like Freddo is trying to work his ticket outta Govan asap.

Could be more to it, but on the face of things it looks like Juve have shafted Spurs massively by changing their minds on selling Dybala to them at the last minute.

Apparently we had a clause that if they didn't sell him before the end of his contract we get him back.

I'm wondering if it will make any difference to the way we negotiate these add on clauses. It seems Bournemouth turned down effectively £20 million at least for him. That would have been £4 million for us. Could we put in clauses that if they get an offer they reject we would be due a percentage of the highest offer when they leave on a free?

No

Next question?
