The key word is "better". To use one of your valuations. Let's value Obiang at £10 million and imagine that's the price we ask for him. Now let's assume Danny Drinkwater comes on the market at £15 million. In my book that would be tantamount to throwing £5 million away , assuming both prices were met, and not improving the squad one iota. On the other hand if Victor Camarasa could be secured for £15 million that would represent an improvement. Under those circumstances to free up funds it might be considered prudent to reduce the Obiang rate to move him on.mkhammer wrote: ↑Thu May 16, 2019 5:14 pmSeems the prob with us at the moment...quite often is with us,we seem to be always in a situationWhiskyman wrote: ↑Thu May 16, 2019 2:05 pm
Players are only worth what someone is prepared to pay. No more, no less. Ability, age, length of contract remaining are all factors but if someone wants a player badly enough they'll pay for him. We shouldn't be pressured into letting people go for cut prices and I'm hopeful Husillos is clued up enough to know what players elsewhere are changing hands for.
And we need to replace with better. Which includes better value for money imo. Hopefully the days of the Twitchy scattergun approach to transfers are over.
of being dictated to by the buyers or the sellers...at the moment sides know we have to get rid to get
in...we've got stock nobody really wants,but at the right price...maybe...
Like the Market trader flogging Apples/Bananas or whatever...starts of full price £2 a pound,
end of the day..and he really needs to shift them,make room for tomorrows stock,he's at £1 a pound
and people are buying apples that maybe didn't really want cos they're cheap.
Be interesting see what we get for Obi,Byram,Chico,and others...prob all still be here next year..
Our business mantra is ...Buy High...Sell Low... Always has been....if there's any people
in the footie world that know all about that basic business stuff,it's our owners...
Just goes to show what crap their Football Knowledge of Players is...
But they/we...Nah THEY... made a Million a month on the french bloke...and everyone
says it was a bad deal and we lost out....Spuds had done that ,everyone goes what a brilliant
piece of business that was.
But your right things are swinging round....reckon we could sell all last years incoming, that played
that is, at a profit...first time I've known that happen.
If that makes sense.
