    It's been reported in a couple of places that we've paid half a million, which could rise to considerably more.

    Well you'd query any money we paid on our current players because your standard response whenever we signed or were rumoured to sign someone from a lower league was that they were sub standard/rubbish.
    Always amuses me that you know nothing about the actual running of the club but see fit to deride it at every turn.
    Anyway, that's the end of my responses to you on this thread. It's pointless arguing with your agenda.

    We know the club tell us - as little as they see fit. I've seem a figure of £400k plus add ons for Pinnock so at the minute I'll take the figure at £400k.

    Do you think it prudent to spend a lot more than that on a 24 year old with only one season at Conference level under his belt? I don't. Not sure where I derided the club in the post you have quoted.

    So that will be paid if the time comes.

    If it's £400k now plus £600k in add ons (which would be mental) at the minute it's £400k.

    You do it all the time

    You clearly have a hidden agenda and a vendetta against the current regime

    And I'm sure the fees received, that add to your magical pot of £20million, for the likes of Bree, Mawson, etc were all paid upfront, and had no future incentives..

    If the fees that we received for those players are with add ons then we've done even worse business than originally thought.

    A win-win situation for your negativity, though.

    Yes. I want us to get even lower fees for our best players when sold at the worst possible time.

    100% agree he is like a stuck record. Clearly has a agenda with Patrick ect and how the club is run. Abit sad really.

    He moans that we don't spend enough money, then moans we've spent too much on one player. Even if we spent £1 million on Pinnock, we could sell him for many times that amount in a year, therefore it would be completely worth the initial, somewhat expensive outlay. In fact, next summer, takeover or not, we could sell one of the 10 permanent signings we brought in for much more than what we spent on all players put together, given the 2 years left on their deals, thus meaning if any signing didn't work out from this summer (as inevitably there will be some that don't work out) the loss would be completely written off. That's great business in my mind

    Takeover or not, we're still going to sell players if big bids come in. It's the same for any club. The key will be extending contracts much more proactively than we have done and maximising value in terms of when to sell a player

    We all believed the story when the daily mail broke it a couple of months ago about the takeover but now cos it's bad news, it's fake news? Do me a favor. Folk on this board are so fickle it's unreal.

    I don't see what else could be the issue, deal agreed, PC wants to sell CL wants to buy talks between been ongoing between both parties for months, the only variable is BMBC. If it transpires this issue kills the deal the council will have dealt the Club and the Town a massive blow. Steve Houghton over to you.

    The council have a legal obligation to ensure that they sell assests at a value that is fair to the tax payer not to assist private busienssmen

    They have tried and failed to buy several clubs. Houghtoln should drive the hardest possible bargain. Any profits could be spent on things that actually matter like social care and schools.
