Sell, not good enough, may be ok in the championship, but he will have higher aspirations.

Can’t see him coming back but does anyone want him given they have to cover his full wage with a loan deal? Might be better to give us 5 million and negotiate a lower wage

Bring him back into midfield, we could use yet another sideways and backwards specialist.

He's bought a new house in Spain for him and his family hasn't he? The RedBull sponsor puts us in a far better negotiating position for wantaway players.

Gone out on loan again. Great bit of business, sign a player for £10m on a 4 year deal. Have him play for you for one season, then go out on loan for a couple of years whilst his contract winds down and his value plummets.

Roca is the first of the MOTs voters requests to move on.

So $2.5M/yr for amortization (I don’t have the pound sign on my keypad so please don’t hold that against me). Should we get promoted (we better), there will be 1 year on his deal. Any transfer over $2.5M would be a profit, which I think is reasonable to achieve, no?

That's just in terms of FFP/PNS

There's still general accounting and common sense that says if you paid 10 million quid, it would be nice to sell for 10 million quid. Those numbers were quoted as having to recoup 75 million in transfers this season and 120 million over the next 2 seasons. The Red Bull money probably took care of any short fall in the accounts. But, ideally, you don't want to be losing money on all your transfers.

Totally agree AJS, I was just trying to find a silver lining. No way we’re getting $10 million back at this point. $6-7M if we’re lucky.

Do you really think Jesse would've had the chance to have a say in the matter ?

The clown was a bully, he ran the shitshow, what he wanted came, it's as simple as that.

You're saying don't back the manager by refusing to add players he wants ... Roca was a must buy for us, Marsch wanted him, he is a good footballer and he was very cheap for the premiership. We paid a lot more comparatively for Piroe who was left on the bench a lot.

What made you come to that conclusion?
