There are a few excpetions to that Hoever being one, but the question applied to the whole acadmey system, and was including wages, staff to develope them, the training ground etc, and what of those players who join the club at a young age go through the developement and training and are just released somewhere down the line. I am sure that there have been a hell of a lot more than have been sold, or even that we have made money on
Prephaps someone can do a tread on how much it cost the club to develope young academy players players
No no no - costs other than transfers fees paid don’t count when you’re looking at youth investment.
Peter said so.
I have zero time for that Manchester Harry Potter Class of 2010, however I firmly believe that that Edwards guy or whoever the fuck is in charge of our transfers deserves some credit because of our dealings over the past couple of years. I hate the lizards as much as anyone but it's not like some random guy on Twitter decided Brewster should be sold based on his Youtube highlights
We were never going to sign Werner and Sarr anyway, so even to start with that's a BS comparison, and that's before examining whether any of those claims are actually true.
Were Norwich and Wolves demanding payment up front? Isn't that highly unusual for transfers? The norm is instalments over several years.
Edwards is clearly taking the piss each season.
4M upfront only for Jota. Lol.
OK.. Thank Peter for me LOL
It was bound to happen (the rumour that is)
I can't believe we've not bought anyone from Southampton ...it's been ages
Gruijc linked with a move to Gladbach, we want 20 mill £.
Can see that move happening.
Wolves are interested in signing 27-year-old Liverpool and England midfielder Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain. (Sunday Mirror)
Wolves are becoming our Bournemouth replacement.
Hoever and Ox for Jota (indirectly) will be a great bit of business.
Why get rid of ox ?
If we can keep him, we should do just that , no point in trimming the squad down too aggressively
That’s cos Jota is an upgrade of Ox. There are similarities in terms of playing style but Jota isn’t as injury prone as Ox.
Wolves need a like for like replacement, they think Ox is that player and they are willing to pay. If we demand 25 Mil, and Wolves end up paying, Edwards deserves to be knighted.
Jota, Jones, Elliot
Because he's unlikely to get much match time, it looks like he's way down the order now and it wouldn't surprise me in the slightest if we were to sell him, he probably recognises this too.
Bank the cash while he is still in his prime.
He's on relatively big wages for the amount he plays too, I think his base wages aren't far off the top earners.
Factor in the injuries, & if get shut.
