If the owners are 5 million in debt they have been blowing a million a season on average? I’m guessing they’re not that keen on adding to it? Although regularly chucking a million here and there at the club doesn’t seem a problem for some supporters? Unless it was their money of course, where they go beserk if the club stick an extra 10p on a cup of Bovril?

If you'd tasted the Bovril recently you'd understand. Wink

I agree that was have been unsustainable for the last few years, but it would have been in more particular around when the mysterious Chinese money appeared and disappeared, and with Van Veen, Crooks and now Turnbull gone and with money even come back to us for two of them, I imagine we're no longer hemorrhagging at the same rate any more. Probably still losing money, but at a rate that the owners can tolerate now.

Why do say the buying club makes this decision? Surely if we said we got 1m for Goode, every player we went in for IF they were under contract the selling club would be asking for an inflated transfer fee? Also if a player was out of contract their Agent would be asking for inflated wages, knowing the we'd got a few quid?
I agree, but P*sh chairman, and I think Acrington chairman, has said it pretty much every transfer window when asked. I think there is a general consensus that it should be banned but it doesnt just happen to us

If transfer fees are undisclosed and media/social media reports say we got £1m for a player, but we actually only got £700k, then this could go against us when agents come around hawking their players.....they know we've got money, they just guess how much and would often think we had more than we actually got.

If the club have any sense they’ll be buying players before they sell Goode

The club have already said that we are going to be signing players later into the window. The window is open until October so I have no doubt there will be a few incomings after the season has started.

Over half the teams in League one havnt signed anyone yet, so I am not worried at all. Whoever holds their nerve is going to pick up some very good deals.

The point I am making is you buy your players before anyone has chance to know how much you’ve raked in from sales
Seems as we currently have half a team you’d hope they’d do that before the season is under way

Makes no sense.

Buy loads of players with the plan to sell Goode. Goode gets season long injury so nobody ends up buying him.

Other clubs also know that all income is soon swallowed up in running the club. Particularly with no or limited crowds. Big money players want big wages, can we do that?

You buy your players on Monday before anyone knows you’ve got x amount coming in for Goode on Friday.

You sell Goode for x amount on Monday and then the price of your targets goes up because everyone knows you’ve got cash in the bank to spend on Friday.

If Goode trips over his cat in between it’s hard luck I’m not suggesting you do this during pre season training...

If Goode’s off he won’t be doing a preseason with us anyway in case he gets a knock.

Hasn't stopped Peterborough from making some substantial bids then selling them on for big bucks! Sort of knocks your theory how to buy players!

Following that logic, I'm off to buy a Porsche on the assumption I'll win the lottery tomorrow night.

You would do if you knew you were going to win the lottery.

If there is a £1M deal that can be signed off on Friday and just needs the signature you can then buy players knowing that.

Isn't that similar to what was done when (5Usports) were on the horizon and why we have a debit column larger than it should have been?

If Jadon Sancho is worth 60 million smackers then Goode must be worth at least 6 mill. Stands to reason.

But if you sit down to reality he is not.

On another subject I see that our former midfield wizard Jack Bridge is having trials with Bristol Rovers.

Exactly. The world is starting to reverse on its axis.

Would have thought big Vadaine had until today (end of the month) to sign his contract...

Can't hang around forever & I assume players will be back training from Monday...

A possible replacement for Oliver could have been Ollie Palmer who's turned down a new deal with Crawley but looks set to sign for Wimbledon.
