Everyone's a winner

Well, that was all wrapped up very nicely in the end eh?

How to solve a dispute over whether a player is owed a £300,000 payment? Simple. The buying club makes an improved offer of £300,000 for said player. Selling club accepts and said player presumably pockets the payment leaving both clubs able to claim the upper hand in the matter.

All it realistically leaves is another hole in the line-up from last season - and on the day the fixtures are released, in which scanning through them doesn't reveal a whole lot of points on offer at the moment

vote it up!

There's only one 'winner' and we know who that is.

Well, we've lost our leading goalscorer and midfield engine.

I'm a little obscure on the finer points. He had it in his contract that as soon as a bid for 5.5 million came in for him, he was allowed to speak to the bidder. OK - but does it also say that if he wants to go that we have to sell him? Or, if another team offer more money, but he doesn't want to go there, that we have to sell him to his club of choice? What's that all about? Which legal genius at City agreed to that one then?

Oh well - he'll come back to bite us, but that's City.

Hope D'Abo is geared up to take over, but he's probably still recovering from the vapours. Who cares?
