I tend not to get too worked up over the transfer fees, or in this case, the compensation amounts they pull in. I think Eduard aside, they’ve never reinvested their money into bringing in big money players.Not since the O’Neill day’s when they got Sutton and a couple others in.
Didn’t they just announce accounts recently that stated they had £30m in the bank?
Make it £39m now then if this figure quoted is accurate.
It poses no threat to us sitting in a bank.
One of the main reasons we need to get smarter in our purchasing strategy though, is contained within the way they seem to bring in players ( in this case a manager) .
If we can replicate it, ( and Alfie is likely to provide proof of it) it’s probable that our custodians will reinvest into the squad, rather than leave it sitting in a bank.
Loans for 30 year old plus players won’t allow us to recoup outlay. More Alfie’s please!
If Stevie G ( assuming he is still in situ next season) was to win a double or treble, the likelihood is he’d be a target for EPL clubs. If so, we’d be looking at similar levels of compensation.
He was 1 year in to a 4 year deal and was on £2.5 million a year. £9 million for him and the backroom staff is most likely true. As I have said that's chump change to Leicesters billionaire owners. I couldn't give a toss what they do but don't see the point of people burying their head in the sand saying it hasn't happened. It was the same as Dumbele, people saying they were lucky if they got £10 million. They announced it to the stock exchange it was £19.7 million
Exactly....they are well run financially. Nothing pro Celtic about saying that, it’s just a fact.
We should learn lessons from that and what comes with spending what you’ve not got.
Hopefully we are now decently run in a way we haven’t been since pre Murray.
As a btw, if we get £20m for morelos should bite the hand off for it.
He’s a great player, with poor temperament, and if we try to hold on to him when he wants to go then I can see him being the type of guy who takes the huff, meaning we lose big time.
That’s running the club well financially.
