I was shocked to see the sort of wages Inter are paying players, especially given we are regularly beating AC to players which I assume is down to wages?

 

They both got new Chinese investors over the last few years and have slowly been on the way back. The difference is that Inter's lot actually looked competent and recruitment looked a lot better, AC up until recently have been buying absolute pump.

 

It had been looking like the buyers (who borrowed massively to take control) might not quite have the clout they first appeared to. This was confirmed when they defaulted on their loans from an American hedge fund which then took ownership. 

 

From that point, they've turned it around quite a lot and the current Serie A table isn't all that surprising.

Could we be trying to sign Otavio now for a smallish fee? Rodgers said in the PC yesterday they would like to bring in an attacking midfielder

 

“I think in this window if we could bring in an attacking midfield player, that would be fantastic,” said Rodgers at his press conference ahead of the FA Cup fourth-round tie at Brentford.

Good shout . I was thinking David Oldfield and Wayne Clarke but that was probably the back in Pleat’s time here as “manager” 

Mike Newell went to Everton & we got Wayne Clarke. Oldfield came from Man City.

 

Edit: Clarke went to Man City in a swap with Oldfield. I didn't remember that.

The Global Voice of the Fans tweeting that we've bid 10m #neverwrong

 

 

10mil when the quoted cost for buyout was 3mil? I mean I’ve only read that one so know clue and I am so not in the know lol  But at either cost not huge layout for hopefully a decent squad player. Must really want cover for Praet if we don’t wanna wait for the free transfer.

His wage demands are 4m a year annually not the cost of the transfer. Hence why AC Milans bid was rejected for 5m

Just to confirm, these figures are wages, not transfer fee! Lol

 

Best offer from Arabia was 4.5m a year (unconfirmed whether £ or €), if GBP that’s around £85000 a week, if Euros it’s around £75000 a week.

 

First offer from Milan was 2.2m a year, roughly half of that.

After watching a few of this guys YouTube videos he looks perfect for us.

 

Skilful, technically good and scrappy.

Yeah he really does. If we can't get him then Lindstrom at Brondby looks a star. Work permits issues but he has just made his debut for Denmark, I'm convinced he will go somewhere like Ajax or Atalanta and be unreal.

If Sean’s tweeted it then it’s probably happening he’s not wrong often.

He's wrong loads of times. So many players he said we'd bid for (e.g. Watkins, Ruben Diaz, McNeil) we weren't after and he got it wrong on Chilwell, saying he's staying just before the Telegraph reported a deal had been agreed with Chelsea.

 

That said, he does get it right very occasionally on signings, for example Under. But if you have lots of guesses/report what's been rumoured in other publications, then you're bound to get one correct. 

 

Only thing he consistently gets correct is the team line ups.
