Utrecht kicking up a fuss about a sell on clause not being given to them after Vorms move to Spurs, threatening to take Swansea to Fifa for action.

YateleyRoyal How would you define bigger, Kes?


In this case, I don't think I have to define 'bigger' as it's so obvious, Forest and Sheff Wed are.

Can't believe he's only played 110 PL games there in the last 5 years :shock:

Division club should be in on "pedigree"?

I've argued this the other way but at the end of the day,"pedigree" is a load of bollocks.

Pedigree is what makes Bury a bigger club than Fulham or Wigan.

Unless of course they are using dog food sales to determine league position in which case, fair enough.

UK media seem to be saying £32M

Portuguese media saying the delays were around 3rd party ownership and the sell on fee that Standard Liege had. They claim it was resolved by Man City paying €30M to Porto, €16.5M to a 3rd party owner and man city covering the €5.5M that is on it's way to Standard Liege. If that is true then Man City paid €55M/£44M

Yeah, it's an argument that the league as it was in 1960something is how it should be now. That teams should know their place and players should move to bigger clubs quickly and without fuss.

It's the argument a six year old might make.
