True. Perhaps it was irrelevant if they were losing to a bunch of limp-wristed Brazilian dancers .
Hopefully he'll be too good for Everton!!
Haven’t you heard? No one is too good for Everton.
Details from Brazil have emerged about the payments we're making to Fluminese for him:
€2.5m fee up front (paid already)
€1.5m if he gets an English work permit
€2m in potential bonuses depending on his performances when he arrives here
€4m in potential bonuses for his performances before coming here
Now for the interesting one: We're paying Fluminese €100k each time he plays 45 minutes (or more) for their first team (which only activates after he's played 10 games).
So as Fluminese are apparently in a bad financial state, we're encouraging them to play and develop the lad for us in return for more money. A fantastically structured deal.
Pretty damn clever !
Just a little news from his twitter feed - he's already taking English lessons.
An even better deal for us once the Brazilian club realise you can’t even use Euros in Brazil.
As long as they don't do something stupid like overplay him/ refuse to take him off, and end up causing/ aggravating an injury, then that's a stroke of genius.
Is he at the ‘In this moment, amazin’ level yet.
I await the announcement he is ‘heppy’ to be joining Watford.
Is Slav subbing as the club's English teacher while looking for another manager gig?
Sadly, the UK is simply too dangerous for Serbs these days.
I will be berry berry heppy for his to be announcing in this moment . Tree points.
Yes, a great plan for us - but I'd have been furious if Man City had influenced our team selections and we'd been induced to pick (say) Sancho before he was ready
Why? 3 games and we'd be quids in compared to what we got for him.
We wouldn't have known that at the time we had to pick him
We had no say in Sancho leaving, due to a rule that allowed the big sides to steal talented players for minimal compensation.
We put in a bid for Pedro which was accepted. We are now paying the cash stripped club additional money if they play him. It's really not the same thing.
Yes I know, but I was considering how we would react in the same situation
If we were close to administration and bolton said - start marvin sordell and we'll pay an extra 50k per game. We'd have been happy to do so. Win-win
I think it's a win-win because he's clearly talented, but without the payment there'd likely be a lot of pressure to NOT play him in favour of the prospects they were keeping. If he were rubbish we wouldn't have bought him. So the likelihood that he's being elevated abve more deserving players is small. This is insurance against the opposite. Next year he can come play in Europe.
Goodison Park ?
I’d been even happier if they d paid us not to pay him .
Really? I don't recall him being that bad for us, but perhaps my memory is patchy. His career certainly nosedived after he left, but I think he did OK for us considering his age, and certainly considering the squad we had at a time (crap by Champ standards, probably League 1 quality).
With the benefit of hindsight, some of our managers back then really pulled some rabbits out for us (coupled with Danny Graham being rather good).
He still is knocking in the goals at age 33 for Blackburn
Agreed he was pretty decent , I was just making a cheap gag.
Oh fair enough - went right over my head.
In my defense I'm sick as a dog and dosed up to the gills.
Or I would be, if I was a fish.
...I'm pretty sure I'm not a fish.
This is just what you want us to think. Are you aren't Octodad?
