Summer Transfer Window 2018.

Recommended Posts

That thing about Gibson attempting to dribble is the same thing I love about Ayala. He might be a tall, hard, old school *** but that lad can bring the ball out. Hell, I still remember his run down the right wing :D

With Villa's financial plight, apparently £75m needs to be made up this season... and Traore looking increasingly likely to stay for this season. If there is a sell on clause in his contract, would it be prudent to offer say £1m upfront to get rid of the clause?

Newcastle fan at work has just told me they are after Albert Adomah.

BirminghamLive says there is a 20% sell-on clause in Adamas contract. As someone else mentioned earlier we may be able to negotiate that out if he is still here come the end of the transfer window as Villa badly need the money. Best scenario is Traore stays, signs a new contract and we pay off Villa to remove that clause.

If he's staying why even bother removing the clause? Put the money towards a player instead. Then if we do get promoted he probably would sign a new contract.

You don't think we can maybe sell him in the future?

 

If we don't remove it it will still be there in the future even if he signs a new contract. If we can exploit Villas financial woes we can potentially save a lot of money. Southampton missed out on a lot of money when Spurs sold Bale to Madrid as Spurs offered them a bit of money to remove that sell on clause at a time when Southampton was desperate for money,

The Gazette refuted that claim on Twitter not long ago, didn't they? Said something along the lines of it being their understanding that the clause became inactive when we were relegated or something. Can't remember specifically what was said but it's their understanding that no such clause remains active.

That was about the supposed release clause of £18m, which I guess is probably only active for 1 year from being relegated.

We most likely will sell him in the future I'm just saying promotion is our main priority and every penny counts when it comes to getting players in.

 

To estimate how much the clause is worth Villa will put their own value on traore which would be around £25m, they would ask us for £5m to cancel the clause, even if we negotiate it down to £3m it's not the kind of money we can afford to just write off.

It would be 20% on any profit, so say we go on the £18m price quoted it would be 20% of £11m which is £2.2m. They have really bad cash flow problems so if we offered them £1.5m upfront I'm not sure they could turn it down. Think it would be a wise investment for Gibbo because he could go for a much bigger sum in the future...

Well why not just do that next summer or even January?

 

Even £1.5m is a good players wage for a year.

 

If we have the money available then yea go for it just don't think it should be a priority if at least for now he's staying.

Which would also explain that it was Boro all along who released fake news that there is an 18 million clause in his contract :)

BREAKING: Birmingham have been placed under a transfer embargo after breaching FFP rules during their spending spree last season when they signed 13 players! Birmingham will face further punishment if new signing Kristian Pedersen plays after the EFL declined to register him!

 

That's a blow for us trying to shift Johnson and Fletcher to Monk.

Neil Bausor completes the plot twist by lifting off his mask to reveal he was really M. Night Shyamalan all along :omg:

    • I remember sitting in a pub in the Algarve that had a load of different games in TV for that 8-1 game. Was with my dad and brother, next to a bunch of united fans (were playing Wigan who were just above us going into that final weekend). Drunkenly said to one of them that I'll get a round of shots in for every goal they put past Wigan, and one of their group chimed in that he'd do the same every time we scored.   Safe to say I got the better deal
    • I think you may be right. I seem to remember moaning about the lack of goals we scored that season. 
    • That City game was a freak game rather than a brilliant performance.  It was common knowledge that Ericsson was going to be sacked after the game so I don't think their players were fully motivated, City went down to 10 men and a few of their players threw the towel in after that. We scored a few great goals in that game but it felt a bit like a friendly game towards the end of the match.  I think that result has become more famous over the years because of how big City have become, before they had the money they were no bigger than us as a club and it felt like we used to beat them every season. 
    • Funnily enough enough as far as I remember that 8-1 was the only game that entire season when we scored more than 2 goals. I may be wrong but it's what I remember, didn't bother checking haha. 
    • I went for Brentford.  I think the games I'd like to see are the last game at Ayresome Park, Boro 4-1 vs United and Man City 8-1. The last 2 would be a great reminder to the recent Boro teams you are allowed to win by more than a goal and score more than 3 on occasions.
