Footage has been shown of Maxi Gomez arriving at Valencia airport.

Odd that.

I would have thought you could fly direct to London from Montevideo.

TBF, he does seem to have mellowed a bit (Scooters and fuckwit bar owners excepted), especially on the pitch. I can't really see him coming to blows with Pellegrini like he apparently did with Mancini and I reckon Pelle would be able to get the best out of him. I could honestly see him becoming a fan favourite since we seem to really love a maverick. Especially lunatic Italians.

Besides, it wouldn't be WHUFC without a head case in our squad! A year long contract with an extension if he behaves isn't really that much of a risk - his wages are surprisingly not mega either. I think we'd be mental not to at least consider him, especially as he's free.
Italian :lol:

Assuming they did want him badly, maybe he was the golden egg rather than all the eggs in one basket? Either way it looks like we won't be dipping our soldiers in him next season.
I'm not too worried as whoever they get I'm sure we'll all be eggstatic.
Pellegrini wont be happy to hear the twins were willing to activate the buy out clause but not willing to stump up the cash in one hit.
Amazingly, they have nothing to do with it. Husillos is given a budget and some boundary conditions and left to get on with it.

It’s the way with some on here, will knock anything board have done.

Strike a deal, sign a player, Husillos is wonderful.

Fail to sign a player it’s all the boards fault!
On this occasion I think the “some on here” may have a point.
It’s all very well giving it Charlie big potato’s and offering releases clauses to show the world they are serious and ambitious but another thing entirely to do it knowing the fee has to be paid in full yet having no intentions of doing so .

Now , that may not be Sullivan’s fault that the club can’t afford to do that . Not many can . But to make Husillos go through the rigmarole of attempting to negotiate a deal inevitably resulting in having to offer the full release amount and then pulling the plug just so he can once again announce “we tried” most certainly is.
Husillos well & truly chucked under the latest bus.

Vigo knew we wouldn’t pay up front that’s why they refused to negotiate .
They far preferred the incoming Valencia striker deal.
Surely Husillos would of had all the parameters before negotiating? Rather than been thrown under bus it just could be he fucked it up

It’s not what you do it is the way that you do it.

Are you sure about that ? I'm guessing but surely Husillos would have the physical budget but surely the actual nuances of how any deal was structured would need board approval.

And in the end the player needs to want to cone to us........You can negotiate all you want.....but in the end it's down to the player to sign off on the deal.....irrespective of how the deals are structured between the two clubs

Yup. I am.

I think the only time they need to go back to the board is if the deal was a completely non-standard setup and the structured payments we offered is a pretty standard arrangement.

It was more that we tried and failed to convince them. Worth a try but ultimately they want the money or players up front as they nearly got relegated last season and so they have to rebuild.

...and as Andy says, I think the player wanted to stay in Spain. We tried to lure him with money but ultimately it didnt work out.

The comparison between Balotelli and Dicanio is amusing, one is actually Italian and the other is not really.
