    It's been 'dead' a long time. No more ridiculous than £220m for Neymar, £90m for Lukaku etc.

    There's a rumour he refused to sign a new contract unless they paid him £70,000 a week.

    The only way to survive these days is to make money. Parachute payments have utterly skewed everything in our league and even they are getting outstripped by the stupidity of clubs in giving players what they demand in terms of wages.
    The income generated by our gate receipts doesn't bring us close to being able to compete with this madness I'm afraid.

    The fee would've been bad enough had he just signed a new long-term deal, but he only had twelve months left on his current contract.

    Makes it all the more tragic the pittance that we got for our star striker. It's mad, of course it is, but it's all about timing. Get it right and you make a fortune. Get it wrong and......well, you don't

    In the midst of league 1 players going for upwards of £5 million, and clubs like PSG, Real Madrid, Barcelona and the Manchester clubs throwing £100million's around, is £18 million for Andre Grey really that remarkable.

    I heard this morning that Liverpool have turned down £90million for Philipe Coutinho, who for me is a good but not great player.

    £18m for 9 goals in 32 Premiership appearances. Doesn't get you much, does it?
