I can't get rid of this comment box for some off reason on phone. 

 

 

But, Brewster not favourite to join Palace. 

Wonder if Wilder has anyone else lined up incase this doesn't go through? 

Brewster agent will no doubt be driving the wages up for his client with a few clubs interested.

Remind me again of the charity shield story will ya? Was it something along the lines of they should have played but didn't for some reason so they just said they'd won? 

 

 

The "Charity Shield win" that they refer to is actually the Sheriff Of London Charity Shield, a predecessor of the current one which was briefly played between the best professional and best amateur clubs in the country, rather than the league champions vs FA Cup winners format which began later. Not quite sure how it worked and if they rotated the professional side between the league and cup winners or something, because Wednesday were league champions in 1903 and 1904 yet played in it in 1905.

In 1898 dem blavdes drew twice with Corinthians and therefore shared the trophy. Yet they're still falsely claiming it as a "Charity Shield win" on their honours list, proudly displaying it alongside all those semi final defeats - so tinpot. Wednesday won it outright in 1905 but don't even bother mentioning it in our honours list on the website, just the "real" Charity Shield win in 1935 and runners up in 1930. We didn't play in it after winning the league in 1929, that was one of the years in the 1920s where they did a "Professionals v Amateurs" game instead.

19mil

6mil addons

37mil buy back.

 

That's what SSN are reporting, bid from Palace. 

 

So potentially £25mil and if he does well, a 12mil profit as Liverpool will activate that as soon as he starts banging in goals and gets interest from other clubs.

The buyback clause is interesting, presumably the difference between the 25 million and the 37 million buyback is pretty much his salary over 3/4 years, so it costs Liverpool virtually nothing to have a player developed who they are unsure of 

 

If he and palace fail they still trouser £19 m..... Very clever business from them
