Sell, sell, sell.

 

29 next, resale value plummeting, injury prone.

 

we could get 3 solid players for that combined cost.

 

We can’t make the same mistakes as before, we have to learn to sell at the right time.

I Agree, but i'd deffo go in with a counter offer and see how far they'll go.

Pointed this out in another thread but the key point for me is the quote from the Talleres President saying they have an agreement with Windass and now just be appearing to agree on a fee.

First rule of business...never accept the first offer. Everyone puts a low offer in first to test the water, everyone always asks more for an item than their minimum selling price.

 

If they offer £1m and we say we want £2m then we start negotiating. We will meet somewhere between those figures or their maximum will be lower than our minimum asking price and we both decide a deal isn't possible.

 

Psycholocically if you are buying a £200k house and you offer £190k and it gets accepted you will wonder if you could have got it for £180k, it leaves that little niggle in your mind that you might have over paid.

 

I accept we might sell but there's more money to be had.

Year and a half? Does his contract end on a New Year's Eve?

 

Off he goes, looks like he wants away if he's ready to jump to a very different place.

Whatever you think about the player and the deal it’s a very strange way to do business. Tin pot. This £1m might be payable in 45 installments and linked to Windass winning Eurovision for all we know. Something just doesn’t seem right.

£2.5M? 👀 We finally know DC’s Owlstalk account!

It's what i'd like, not what I think we'd get.

You never go in with your best offer first & if the £1m is true, we might stretch another 3 or 4 hundred grand out of them. i'd hope anyway.

I think that’s wholly unrealistic, For a player we paid circa £500k for and struggled to kick a ball last season 

 

 

Maybe mate, but if you don't ask you don't get. i'd like to think we could squeeze abit more out of them.
