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.

Ah right yeah, that was it, my bad.

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:

    • Brace yourself for the defeat Kenny and assume the defeat, anything else will be a bonus and a nice surprise!
    • I'd go with: GK: Stoj RB: Spence LB: Coulson CB: Moukoudi CB: Fry CDM: Clayton CDM: Howson AM: Morrison AM: Roberts AM: Tavernier CF: Fletcher Reasons being, We need to attack. Morrison showed he has a great touch and could pick out a pass if he had some movement in front of him. I'd like to think that Roberts, Tav and Fletch could provide that movement. Spence and Coulson provide width. Clayton and Howson provided added metal at the back. 4231 or 424 formation. I could be wrong and people might argue that this selection would get battered, I'd be interested to see what people think.
    • The fat lady hasn't sung yet, that's what I keep telling myself. Everyone's expecting a defeat now so we're bound to win.
    • Well after Stoke I really fancied us to beat Hull and QPR, it shows how carried away I got. After Hull and QPR I can't see where the next point is coming from.  All the proposed teams on this thread show that we don't have a clue who our best eleven is. That was backed up the other day by Warnock's team selection.  I'm going to predict a hammering (3-0) to Millwall and hope I'm as wrong as I have been for the last few games. 
    • This is what I would want to see. More of a 3-5-2 which has worked for us at times this season. I feel like we need Howson in midfield as our midfielders are just useless and lack any leadership, he can at least make a tackle. Saville to start if we want more balance or Tav if we wanna go for it. Roberts behind the striker and just let him run at them on the counter attack, maybe him and Britt could get something going. Let Spence and Coulson offer our pace and width as wingsback.                                          Stojanovic    Spence - Fry - Moukoudi - Friend/Shotton - Coulson                          Howson - McNair - Saville/Tav                                       Roberts                                               Britt/Fletch                             Not that it matters like, don't have much hope for this game.
