If we've taken a piss poor fee purely on the hope that he goes for a bigger one in the future then that's naive to the extreme. Preston don't have a great tradition of developing players and selling them on, they go through managers pretty quickly, relegation isn't out of the question for them so that could result in him being sold for £2m and it won't break Davidson's record, plus injuries can happen at any time.

Sell on clauses are designed to enhance the fee, not top it up to the level that it should've been at in the first place

What about if the clauses are things that look certain to happen, like International caps/league appearances, and take us over £2m, then you have the 25% on top of that?

Could easily mean them selling him for £8m takes us closer to £5m than £4m.

All a caveat on the 25% figure obvs.

Sadly yes.

Apart from Aberdeen's wait for another trophy, obviously.

We won a trophy last month. The club that has held Scottish Football’s Hot Potato for the longest consecutive period of time.

Of course and it's a gamble, but it's a stupid one to take, especially when we currently have walking proof of how badly it can go down south after a big injury with Stevie May in the building. That £5m will be useful once we've fully transformed into Falkirk and play in League one in two years

Maybe Eetu wouldn’t have agreed more than 2 years but this is another one where Brown had to be brave and slap a 3 year deal in front of him with the understanding we’d let him move for a genuinely fair price. He is clearly a top class player who should come good once he settles in.

As it is, he’ll probably not settle into the team and a rhyme until December/January ish, then we’ll get a good six months out of him before selling him to Rochester Athletic Wanderers for 400k in the summer because he’s in the last year of his contract.

Speaking of, Will you be looking to do the double again next season with the championship and the challenge cup?
I'd taken that right now tbh.

Also, we should be ringing up Clive to let him know the same contract we offered Melamed is on the table if he wants it… it would be nice to actually score some goals this season


Don’t be surprised to see him become a targeted panic signing in January alongside a Man City Loan, and maybe if we’re lucky a third rate striker from the Irish league who scored 10 in 8 matches then none in 40.

We'd have lost Kerr for nothing in 12 months, alongside Rooney and McCart. Probably needed to get money for one of them.
McCann deal could easily go over £4m, potentially about £5m. One I suspect will look a shite deal until it doesn't.
Thing is, it would really be 3 months when that bomb came sailing through the roof with a pre-contract.

MacPherson's quote, '"There are many quality players at the Football Club and I know I will need to produce my very best to get into the team.'

He obviously signed on before half them left.
