It's ok though, Gibson, Bevington and Bausor have a cunning plan.

We're going to start buying good players this season.

 

TBF I think the one positive we can say about our signings so far is that if they don't make it, at least we've not spunked tons of money bringing them in. And we won't be spending a whole lot more on wages either. They're the right kind of signings who could indeed be just as useless to us over time.

I find the concept of selling Fry and keeping Britt nonsensical, certainly for the fees talked about. A lot fo rumours and nonsense occur during the transfer period, and I'm hoping this is one of them.

Remember we need to sort ourselves out for FFP. So15mill for Britt, against an amortised 3.75m fee in this financial year and 1.75m in wage reduction = 6.5 reduction in costs from a FFP perspective + whatever portion of 15m fee we got up front. That sale alone could put us back on the straight as far as FFP goes.

 

Fry wouldn't do that. There is no amortised fee on our books, just his wage cost which must be a 1/4 of Britts, because a) he isn't a striker, and b) he's only a kid.

The fee to sell Fry would surely need to be astronomical, something mad like 25+m and mostly up front to have a strong impact on our FFP AND we would still need to get Britt off our books in 12m, with 1 year on his contract, if we don't go up.

Out:

Britt - 14m

Fry - 15m + Gibson 

Shotton - 3m?

In:

Gibson (Fry Deal)

Eze - 8m

McKenna - 7m

Kent - 4m plus add-ons

Dijksteel - 2m (pretty much confirmed already)

Striker (Frey/Samatta) - 4/5m? - cheeky punt for Paddy even at the 10m Leeds never paid us last season ??

I think that lowers the wage bill a bit and also makes us a bit of coin in transfer fees. I'd love to keep Fry and Britt but if we cant and it helps us flesh out the squad it may not be a total disaster!

 

Seen SDS say it's not Gibbo included in the part ex. If that's the case would hope it was Vydra to play as a false 9 and we will need to buy another CB instead of another striker

 

We get Michael Frey I'm OK

    • Businesses should be means tested much like people are for social welfare. There is no way bajillionaires like Branson should get away with furloughing staff, neither should businesses with 100's of millions of pounds income per year. 
    • Liverpool have reversed the decision now. Rightly so, in my opinion. 
    • I don’t think it’s down to the working class nature of football, boxers don’t get the same flack, I think it’s because clubs are very often the heart of a community. I remember chatting to a woman I met a few years ago who wouldn’t let her kids watch football because footballers were payed an obscene amount of money. I asked her if she allowed her kids to watch Hollywood movies, of course, she said!  
    • Wherever you stand on it... Footballers do always seem to be fair game when it comes to having a pop at the rich. Is it the working class nature of football? I've always wondered.  Where are the calls for musicians, actors, or even athletes from other well-paid sports to give up their earnings for the less fortunate? Or the bankers and CEOs who squirrel millions away into offshore accounts, taking from society and never giving back? At least footballers bring a bit of joy and entertainment to millions of people a couple of times a week. 
    • Yep, its a real sob story.  But in normal life, imagine if you could live comfortably on 10% of your takehome after buying your house and car. You would only have day to day expenses, holidays, etc. You take the rest of your salary and put it in one of those long term savings accounts (or whatever) that you cannot touch for 2 years. Then your salary is reduced and that 10% is no longer enough to cover your day to day. Regardless of how much actual money that is, when you try to force people to change their living circumstances you will always have push-back.  Now of course nobody earning decent money should be in that situation. It is recommended to split your savings, some in short term (easily retrieved), some in medium term (normally a wait period to retrieve) and some in long term (not normally retrievable) eg Property and pension.  On one hand it does highlight that these are just people, like all of us. On the other hand, they are fabulously wealthy and a target for those less well off who are revered when times are good and reviled when times are bad.  I don't blame the players for earning what they do, you make hay while the sun shines and we would all probably try to earn the same if circumstances were different. The clubs though are a different story and should be looking after the non mega-rich employees.
