  1. Love Max but he must be sat there like
  2. Scouts check Instagram for players?
  3. I hope that’s the case, gets a bit murky though. If he’s waiting to see what else happens, that’s a problem anyway.
  4. No, this is how these deals work. Take a look at Frankfurt and Jovic if you need further proof.
  5. Cause it is part of the loan agreement, that’s how these deals work. On June 1st the loan expires, clause and all, and he officially goes back to Chelsea. This isn’t a gentlemen’s agreement, it’s a set-in-stone clause in the loan contract. No loan contract, no £2m deal. Even then, I’m not sure. Thinking of it, it makes no sense for Jay not to sign regardless of what he wants to do. We could just do a Frankfurt, sign him for the pre-agreed peanuts fee then sell him on for a big profit.
  6. My point is that that fee expires on May 31st, no one else can bid for him until after that date. So if he’s waiting for other offers our deal will expire and I imagine we’d have to pay a lot more than £2m.
  7. If he’s waiting for other offers, we’re screwed tbh. We’d have to pay way more, I imagine, than the current deal and likely wouldn’t get him anyway. Hopefully the knock on of Lloyd going is Jay realising he’s undisputed first choice now.
  8. We only have until May 31st to get him for that pre-agreed fee, so I agree that it’s getting a bit strange now. Given that triggering his kind of deal should really just be a formality.
  9. I guess signing a 22 year old from non-league is a bold move.
  10. Definitely agree with Brentford, their scouting has been brilliant. Even Benrhama only cost them £1.5m, what we were doing in France when Brentford was finding these guys?
  11. For me, this season, it’s Ajax, Frankfurt and RB Salzburg. All three have punched hugely above their weight by mixing quality playstyles with youth and some great scouting and signings. All three have mixed youth with experience and gotten by on relatively modest budgets (despite Ajax and Salzburg both being fairly minted). Looking at some of the signings they’ve made in recent years, Salzburg and Frankfurt in particular, it’s astonishing what you can get for very little these days. I’d love to see City push the boat out and go abroad a bit more, there’s so many leagues and players out there yet we’re once again linked with a £4m bloke from League 1. Buying from England is, by and large, so expensive these days. For comparison here’s some of the fees Frankfurt and Salzburg have paid in recent years: Salzburg: £4m- Munas Dabbur (turned into a £15m sale) £1.9m- Dayot Upamecano (turned into £9m sale) Their current starting CB pairing of Pongracic and Onguene cost less than £3m combined. Frankfurt: £1.8m-Ante Rebic (Now worth £31m) £8m- Sebastian Haller (Now worth £36m) £900k- Danny Da Costa (Now worth £10m) £6m- Luka Jovic (Now worth £60m) These guys also all play lovely football, Salzburg especially, and even if it meant sacrificing Eliasson I’d love to see us set up like they do.
  12. On football manager I always book in a pre-season game against Rovers. Always nice to get a good laugh in during pre-season.
  13. They don’t have much say, I should say. Again, look at Jovic. Benfica probably wanted to keep him and sell him but he opted to, potentially, do the same at Frankfurt. It’s really all down to Jay now. Yeah, definitely in Jay’s hands more than anything else. Hope he realises what he could do here. Fingers crossed.
