I know but another way I can put it is Gordon has 3 more goals despite starting nearly 3 times as many games and it doesn't look nearly as shiny.
I just think a lot of arguments in Gordon's favor here are things I don't believe in, your usual x team must know something if they're spending that some and the he'd do better with better players type stuff that for me is pretty unconvincing. If you can't construct a case for his personal play that says he's worth at least 30m today without the potential tossed in then you should be getting this deal done. Amd I don't see that case.
Everton have declined one bid of £45m and, if the reports are to be believed, another of £40m.Absolutely. Look how firm Leicester have been with Fofana or Brighton with Cucurella. That's the kind of money we should be demanding.
Leicester and Brighton stand up for themselves, but Everton shouldn't?
Starts does not equal appearances. I used the word starts for a reason.Well the problem is, the maths is wrong.
They've made comparable appearances, and Gordon has 400% more goals and is younger.
I'm not sure why you feel I need to construct a case for Gordon mate. I'm not his agent. It means sweet f/a as well, as professionals who are highly paid to do this stuff have placed a value of at least 45m on him. Nothing I can say holds weight to that.
45m in the bank and Lampard chased off for someone who can actually develop the squad? I've seen worse.It’s not long before someone comes out with the “Lampard is clearly helping Chelsea by selling our star player to them, he hates us the Tory Biff”
I only disagree in the sense that if Everton have a valuation, however crazy it may be (because they don't want or need to sell), then they have every right to stick to it.Starts does not equal appearances. I used the word starts for a reason.
Every single person involved in this deal to this point is freaking nuts. I don't care how much they're paid. No reason to offer that much, no reason to rebuff it, no reason to come back, no reason to say no again.
Sorry I didn't know that, mind you I can't blame him if he has. Don't think any top player would want to go to United, he probably thinks he's better off staying at the basket case club he's already at. Better the devil you know.tbf he's said numerous times he wants to stay at Barca, in public
That's my point. There is a lot of talk about Gordon pushing for this. Articles like that underline the Kenwright modus operandi.Everton aren't a club that gets to keep players like Gordon when bids like that come in. Truthfully for a player with that output I don't know many clubs who wouldn't take it.
That's exactly the point of the rules. The big-money teams wanted cost controls, but they didn't want to lose their financial advantage. The current rules do that perfectly.I think people understand the rules mate, but the rules just dont make any sense. They bake in inequality.
It’s almost like there’s a plan on the horizon and he’s trying to get there.45m in the bank and Lampard chased off for someone who can actually develop the squad? I've seen worse.
This is mostly a joke btw, Frank has time from me because we are starting to look better. But win a match ffs.
