Just seen this news, it seems a bit of a waste to spend so long trying to sign him to not get a deal done now. 

 

I get not being ripped off by agents, however this is the same for all clubs, and most manage to get big deals done (as this is how football works nowadays, like it or not) or don't take six months to realise they are being played.

 

I still think it'll get done tbh. It's not a positive if we have to go further down Howe's wishlist, however it might try to be spun.

For the first time in about 15 years I've got complete and total faith in the people trying to sign players for the club. I didn't have it in January as they were still a bit of an unknown quantity at the time but they absolutely delivered 100% when they needed to. That urgency, understandably, isn't there this summer as it's a different situation with different aims. 

 

Under Ashley there was always the nagging doubt about players being bought for the wrong reasons plus they were clearly sketchy, dishonest and shady as fuck. Wouldn't have trusted them to buy a packet of fucking crisps the fucking arseholes. But this is different, the trust is now there and if they walk away from the deal for this kid then fair enough, I'll trust them. If they're trying to force a better deal by leaking shit then fair enough, I'll trust them. If they're already working on another deal for a different player that we don't even know about then fair enough, I'll trust them.

 

Basically I'm chilled as fuck about this window, have total faith in the people running the gaff and I trust them to get it right more often than not. It's much, much nicer this way and I like it :)

@ManDoon& @HTT II to a lesser degree. You're arguing something I have never disagreed with. I believe players should get paid their worth. I just think they are overvalued due to the obscene amounts of money the game fleeces from the average supporter. And unless you have any other justification for their value beyond, "the money has to go somewhere" I think we should stop the discussion.

Maybe footballers who deserved their mutli million pound boot deal, because it's a short career, and their image rights, because it's a short career, and their signing on fees, because it's a short career, and a job in the media at the end of their short career, deserve to be have their rape charges viewed differently, because of the money they generate for their victims.  Does the victim not have the right to exploit their earning potential if a high profile star assaults them?

I know I'm getting ridiculous you don't have to tell me.

:lol: No you’re right, what Marx would actually want is the employee to be crushed by the corp who owns him, and for them to profit wildly off the fruits of their Labour. Marx being a famous hater of workers 

Keep inventing arguments that I've never offered all you want mate.

Footballers should get the value of their labour, but they get too much because fans shouldn't be getting ripped off for the amount that that value is.

 

There you go, now you're both right.

Agent seems like a cunt, there needs to be some kind of regulation for them, if a fee and terms have been agreed theres no way an agent should be able to stall the deal.

 

Edit: If the reports are true.

If he signs, from what we know his agent could be a massive pain in the arse going forward. Sticking him in the shop window at every opportunity, digging in at contract renewal time, etc. I hope he bins him or it has the potential to become a headache for the club.

Centrist stuff :bluestar:. Nah you’re right though, I just fail to see why it’s always them that come in for criticism when everyone else is revered for high earning. 

Nobody was criticising the players. You were defending agents.

Was thinking that. Most people on twitter have concluded that because he's put an "N" in there, it's quite obviously directed towards us.[emoji38]

I don't get it? Why people feeling insulted over it?

It’s a screen shot from a TikTok video he posted 2 days ago from his birthday. On the video it says “enjoy” repeatedly. Literally nothing to it at all

The backtracking if he signs will be sensational. As if folk genuinely believe a 20 year old footballer living in France has been listening to Keith Downie and Graeme Bailey all day and thought "have this you cunts..."
