WHO Poll
Q: 2021/22 What competition should we prioritise this season?
a. The league is our bread & butter, so this year let's have a club sandwich
b. We're owed an FA Cup after Gerrard nicked our last one in 06, our name's on it in 22
c. A bye to the League Cup 3rd round gives us a good start, let's make it count
d. The Europa is our best ticket to the Champions League, this is the one
e. What's wrong with you, let's do the lot, has the quadruple ever been done

Maxi Gomez
Seems to be piggy-backing off the back of the Arnautovic thread, but surely deserves a thread of its own?

He obviously would prefer to stay in Spain, but money may well talk. Fingers crossed.

I'd suggest this thread should be rocketed to the moon. Never to return. Feels like 50 years already.

Celta get 2 players from Valencia in exchange for some money plus a sell on clause.

Re: Maxi Gomez
Gomez signed...
Now has 125million release clause...

Re: Maxi Gomez
As I mentioned very early on in this thread...

Celta and Valencia have a long history of doing business together. Loans, exchanges and signings in both directions.

I'm not surprised or disappointed about it

Re: Maxi Gomez

I was thinking about if interest is paid. I have a feeling, though, most ransfers are fixed rates of repayment.

All guess work, of course.

SUM A DING WONG - It all depends on whether interest is accrued or not. If interest-free over say, five years, it's a no brainer but I'm sure it's not as cut and dry as that.

I'd spend the 18k in one go, just so i could tell people what a rich cunt I am.

That's not the right answer though, is it.

Re: Maxi Gomez
Wong, if you needed a new car, would you rather pay £18k upfront or £500 a month spread over 3 years?

A similar thing is going on right now with Griezmann's move from from Atletico Madrid to Barcelona. Barca wanted to pay in installments, Atletico said no, so they have to pay the full buyout fee in one go.

Brady is too busy getting her baps out, for M'Bappe as we type.

Re: Maxi Gomez
Apologies if Iam being fucking stupid here and asking a silly obvious question - but, i have to ask though.

Is it better from a financial point of view to pay in instalments or pay all in one go.

Or does it not matter either way?

I'm assuming it's better to pay in, installments?

Dan M 10:53 Thu Jul 11
Re: Maxi Gomez
Worth reading both pages of this, then talk about what it is and isn't. The BUY-OUT clause is something that doesn't exist over here and is completely different from the release clauses that we're used to. It also suggests why Celta demanded it was done by the book and why West Ham thought maybe it wouldn't be.

Why didn't they send the irresistible saucepot Baroness Brady (of the Apprentice fame) to do the deal? they would have been falling over themselves to please her...oh behave!

Re: Maxi Gomez
Our owners are massive cunts for sure, but I'm not sure they can be given too much grief over this. No one pays that sort of money up front for a player (well, City might but having your own oil wells does somewhat change things). He wants to stay in dagoland, so be it.

At worst you could say they should have sounded him out in advance, but in this day and age that might not have made a load of difference. Early doors yet. One decent MF with some running in him, a decent striker and someone to back him up and we could be looking at a really good season.

Do we KNOW it has to be paid in full? I don't get why it would be a League rule that it'd have to be paid up front. A release clause is Celta's contract, they could accept payment in bananas if they wanted. I think someone has got confused with the fact that the player has to lodge his fee with the League. I've not seen this anywhere official, just one of the Facebook people running with it because it suits his criticism of the Club.

Why the fuck would they bother if they knew their method of payment couldn't be accepted? I don't care what anyone thinks of them - they're just not going to waste their time. Sounds like guesswork bullshit to me.

Re: Maxi Gomez
the kid had a two week holiday inbetween an international tournament and pre-season, and unlike all of his mates larging it up in a dubai penthouse, he went camping in the woods for his dad's birthday, despite it being the middle of their winter.

attempting to sway that sort of character with a bung was never going to work out.

swindon hammer 10:16 Thu Jul 11
Re: Maxi Gomez
It's very obvious from the start that the player favoured a move to Valencia but I get the feeling his agent and Celta were using us a bit to get a better deal for them both whilst always knowing he was going to stay in Spain.

Can't say I knew too much about the player unlike some "experts" on here but thats social media for you. As soon as we are linked with a player they go on YouTube for a few clips and then become fixated with them.

Onwards and Upwards

Re: Maxi Gomez
With 2 comparable cash and wages offers...but one with Euro/CL games...
Most players would seek Euro Action...
Obviously we don't have it this season...
Mainly thanks to a Shite Arnautovic...
