Ed you seen it's being reported that when the bhoy fae Man city signs there will be a clause for us to sign him permanently?
So Man city are now signing players loaning them straight out and selling them without ever doing any work with them.

{Ed007's Note - They done it with Aaron Mooy as well.}

Agree0 Disagree0

That's a joke eh?

{Ed007's Note - Chelsea do it as well, they had 38 players out on loan last season. Did Lukaku make any Chelsea appearances?}

03 Aug 2018 13:52:06
What's the point in them doing that?

{Ed007's Note - They make money out of the deals Mooy was signed on a free and the set price was £8 million rising to £10 and they put buyback clauses (and probably a sell on clause too) in the deal. I think it's set at £20 million for Mooy, so if they sign him back they're basically getting a good Pub League player for £10 million and if someone else signs him City will get a decent cut of it.}

Sure he played about a dozen times did he not?

{Ed007's Note - Yeah it seems he did play 15 games -12 in his first season and at the start of his second. I'm surprised by that but I'm a at a bad age and my memory isn't what it was lol.}

03 Aug 2018 15:06:04
I still watched it at that time and I can mind them saying he was the natural replacement for drogba
Is that guy mooy the same one that broke a bone in his back playing for st mirren or st Johnstone?

{Ed007's Note - That's him, he was at St Mirren for a couple of seasons.}

03 Aug 2018 15:46:39
That's all I remember about him. Had a bit of a round about career eh.

03 Aug 2018 17:03:36
Aye Kev, Mooy scores a goal in the premiership so he’s now worth 45 million - if only he was English they could say 65 million.

Kev its frightening that Mooney went for £8mill. Look at Armstrong. £7mill and he will not be out of place in EPL. Mc Ginn £4mill. Its nothing for these clubs. Armstrong could go sell on for double his fee after 1 season in EPL. Look at Robertson with Liverpool. Went for hee haw and now talking about £35mill to take him out of Liverpool. We have at least 9 players who could get a game in 13 or 14 EPL teams. But we would only get half the transfer fee, if that.
Tierney, Ajar, N'tcham, Brown, Forrest, eddy, Dembele, McGregor, Rogic could all hold their own in all but maybe top 6 EPL clubs.

38 players on loan? Seriosly? That is just so fu (k£d up.

{Ed007's Note - It's crazy isn't it? Tore Andre Flo works for Chelsea and his job is solely to look after the players out on loan. Here's a list of them all:

I'm sort of speechless, Ed. My god!

So at the moment UEFA have narrowed the CL down to a dozen or a half dozen plausible victors such teams are enabled to commandeer the bulk of available playing talent on every continent globally. Nice. Hard to avoid the conclusion that the jig is up. Isn't there a monopolies commission or something? Be interesting to hear what the likes PL think about this.

{Ed007's Note - It's all geared towards the bigger clubs. I remember Ed002 telling me recently that there was a feeling growing throughout football that only a handful of teams can afford the top, TOP talent and that it's only going to get worse.}

03 Aug 2018 18:45:04
Also makes me think Paddy was a bit naive if not delusional at least the first time round when he determined to go back and fight for a role there. The system just isn't set up like that.

Sorry I'm just trying to wrap my head around this. Wow.

{Ed007's Note - Paddy was always going to struggle to have any long-term future at City and Guardiola coming in wasn't going to help with that.}

03 Aug 2018 21:41:15
I think Paddy will struggle in EPL. He will end up at a good championship club.

03 Aug 2018 22:40:27
Maybe Chelsea should host a competition in the Dubai every year where the 4 different teams of loanees battle it out to have a 1 in 4 chance of a sub spot in cup ties the following season. Everyone's a winner.

signing up any half decent players removes any chance of your opposition getting them.
