    I really don’t get his comments at all.

    ‘I’m the new president of the club. I’m also a lawyer. A contract was made before I got this role and there’s nothing untoward about it. I just don’t like it. So I’m going to see what I can do to go about breaking it.’

    That isn’t how it works. You’d think a lawyer would know that. And claiming he wants to do it to make him stay in Brazil a bit longer and nothing to do with the fact he thinks he’d get mega bucks from Spain.

    I’m not sure they’d be able to if a contract is signed and legal as the guy himself has stated. But if they get in the players ear about moving elsewhere....then who knows.

    A loophole can usually be found in most contracts by the top lawyers.

    It's exactly how it works.
    There may be some re-translation issues in what he says, but he's basically going to look for any ambiguity, lack of clarity in the agreement and see if he can use that to renegotiate. In every legal agreement I review there are always grey areas and there will probably be some here where you have a bunch of Italians entering an agreement with a bunch of Brazilians, probably in English.

    I’ve written to watford claiming I’m Pedro’s long lost cousin, in the hope they give me a shirt, a pair of Elton John tickets & the red ******* lion !

    They'll make a film about this transfer one day.

    A gripping legal thriller, starring Ryan Gosling as the maverick Fluminese Lawyer / Club President hero and Paul Giamatti as the scheming Gino Pozzo.

    Five Stars.

    If he had cojones he'd put his hand in his pocket and pay us the 20 million euros now.

    I think IF anything were to come of Pedro going to another club surely we would launch some form of complaint to FIFA - sets a very bad precedent if a signed agreed transfer was broken because the big boys came in.

    Am I being greedy in wanting this lad to be the next big thing in football and to actually see him play for Watford for at least a season or two?
     
  16. NO!

    Oooh the fixtures mean young Pedro could get his debut hat trick against....

    Wolves (if the deal is officially done on the 1st jan)...quite like that.
    If not....Bournemouth! Ahh the joy that would bring.
    Or the FA Cup 3rd round away at L@@@n....oh my.

    With IBB as the token female fan and Harry Hornet as himself. Jason Statham will of course play Gino's enforcer.

    I suppose there is the possibility that Gino and the Barca bloke discussed the Cricket World Cup and argued about what cheese is the best (as exclusively revealed by WFCForums.com).

    Apparently offering some hospitality to his family and agents recently has already paid dividends:

    Doesn't he have an office at the training ground? Surely the players see him all the time.
     
  30. No one gets to see Gino unless they have passed seven trials and proved themselves worthy.

    Then after the first introduction, they will see him one more time if they do good, and two more times if they do bad.
