That’s a no then. 

 

Our recruitment activity is the main reason why we ended up with up with a bunch of overpaid duffers lower in the league than when we started with DC. 

Of course it’s a no!

The clue is in the reply, Sherlock

Of course Chelsea will want £5m for Hector. They paid £4m for him and they’ll want to make a profit on him. That’s business.

 

For me, Hector was excellent next season and it’s a no brainer to bring him back to the club. It’s tried and tested and limited risk. I would go up to £3.5m fee and an additional £500k based on promotion. Obviously, I’d start negotiating at a lower price. Still think this could happen.

 

Rhodes at £7m is laughable. I think the maximum we can expect is £3m and we may not even get that.

We're lucky Norwich want him back. I was hoping DC would make the most of that, not scare them off with a silly price.

Apparantly Delia is only giving him 20 Million to spend so no way he's going to spaff 7milll on Rhodes, 2 million tops. 

Depends how the deal is structured, could be 2 - 3 mill up front and the rest in add-ons, like another 2 mill if they stay up. 

 

Also if you don't ask....No one thought the loan deal would go through, but that got negotiated and agreed in the end.

 

Maybe DC has a point. Start off high and meet in the middle.

Chelsea paid 4 million for Hector from Reading and he's not progressed from that Championship level so 4 million is still about right though prices are rising. A deal of money up front and money later might work. If not then it's alternatives. Sort the squad overall and later payment should prove workable.

I'd agree with you until the last 12 months. 

The 1m loan fee for Rhodes, Iorfa for 250k. The Hector loan. Bannan and Joao contracts.The Bruce arrival and letting him start at his choosing.

That's been an improvement to be fair so there might be light at the end of the tunnel.

We dont have a problem bringing in, its the selling of theres an issue, you have to generate income from selling as well.

It’s called negotiation!

Ask for 7, Offered 2, agree on 3.5!

Also the hypocrisy on here over a Nixon article is laughable, usually any of his stories are met with comments of “It’s only Nixon, he knows fukall” etc, etc. But because it can be seen as a stick to beat the Chairman with it’s suddenly gospel and manna from heaven for all the usual Chansiri haters!

 

That is not how to negotiate.

 

Negotiation is about setting a desired price and the lowest price you are prepared to go to then (usually) settle on something in between. There is a difference between a desired price and an unrealistic one. If you had a house valued at around £100,000 but you advertised it £200,000, all you would do is put off potential purchasers.

Thing is, we don’t negotiate. That’s been proven, time after time.

Aye, that's quite a different matter. Put that one down to Mr Chansiri's business acumen.

If Van Aiken is worth the £4m we paid then Hector is a bargain at 5 million

 

Agreed but nobody would rate VA as worth even a quarter of what we paid for him. As for Hector he'd be worth 5 million to Fulham so that's where he will probably end up. Disappointing but we've got to be realistic.

Agreed. Lets look at this another way, how many players have we made a profit on since DC has been here?

Maybe the clue to your question is ‘transfer embargo’ ?

I agree with most of that but then you have to figure in other market forces like promotion to the PL and current market value.

Madine’s £6m move to Cardiff could be seen as a reasonable benchmark from where to start negotiations!
