    It sounds to me like we're not willing to sit back and wait for them to make their mind up. Waiting until Saturday means we'd have Sunday and Monday to get them over the line. I can only imagine waiting until after those games is because their own business isn't going as well as they'd hope. So what happens if they don't sign anyone? We get nobody.

    It's a big risk to wait it out at this point, I don't think we should play the waiting game unless the alternatives don't actually improve us at all.

    We haven't played the waiting game, because we've got Yannick in to not be left empty handed. 

    If we've agreed the financial details with the clubs & the players, and all are happy to proceed, leaving just their managers consent, if that consent comes late in the day on Monday, you'd expect us to be the 1st phone call with 1st refusual.  We then make a decision based on can we now afford them (or need them) if we've signed another/others.

    I get a gut feeling this option will present itself with one of the two players, it just depends on if we're still interested. 

    So not completely dead.

    This 32Red thing almost reads like 3rd party ownership 

    We need Bulkhaul to sponsor Britt's wages if we start to sail too close to FFP.

    Derby are starting to take the piddle though, and the EFL need to look into dealings like this.

    Personally I don’t think Derby or other clubs doing anything wrong with their business models and oblique internal sales. I blame the EFL who make rules, but then when forced to enforce them interpret them in such a way that it would be clearer and simpler not to have the rules anyway.

    imo nothing worse than having a good rule then having it interpreted and enforced by those that don’t and won’t. 

    I often think the whole "if you can't beat them, join them" on the Stadium sale loophole , but as you only really get 1 go at it the timing needs to be right. 

    If I understand correctly the FFP measurement is based on the most recent 3 seasons. Looking at our last 3 seasons where 2 of which included parachute payments, I would suggest we are compliant.  I've nerded a bit and reckon playing this trump card (if needed) wouldn't be until the 2021/22 season (provided we've not secured promotion beforehand).   But I would guess by that time the EFL would have closed such loopholes with rule amendments. 

    Just thinking out loud.

    They are very uncomplimentary towards Middlesbrough. I wonder how many have ever been to the area.

    At least he won't need a stab vest to walk down to the local.  How any Londoner can call anywhere else a  5 hit-hole is beyond me.  2 bit mockney muppets .
