Won't get £2m for Jedinak at his age and wages.

You'd be surprised, with his penalty taking and all round performances in the world cup it wouldn't surprise me if clubs in places like China or America, who regularly takes guys around that age, would at least match his wage and throw us a couple of million.

Apparently we're interested in some geezer called Ayoze Perez for £24m. Makes sense that one, we could increase our financial black hole from £40m to £64m in the blink of an eye.

So far we've Grealish, Kodjia, Albert, BB, Chester and Jedi all linked with moves away.

That's the best part of £60m. The question is how many will actually leave.

I'm guessing all six, but for nowhere near 60m

Grealish 20m
Kodjia 8m
Albert 6m
Chester 8m
Jedi 2m

Just random guesses of course



not saying your wrong because who knows but I would go

Grealish    Worth - 40m       Get - 18m

Kodja     Worth. - 8m        Get - 5m

Albert       Worth -  5m.       Get. - 3m

Chester.    Worth -  15m.     Get -  7m

Jedi.         Worth -   2m.      Get -   2m

BB.           Worth -   1m.      Get -   1.5 m


I make that a total 36.5m because of the fire sale 40m tops

Hope I'm miles out obvs

I actually think that Albert, Kodja, Barny and Jedi will be very difficult to shift at all to be honest
because of a mixture of age, wages, form, injures etc

Sorry John but the prices you've listed are silly because if they're what we're offered then there's absolutely no point in us selling them.  Kodjia for example, if we sold him for £5m would give us an FFP credit of about £1m which is almost worthless to us so the only other reason to sell him would be because he's agitating for a move but that doesn't appear to be the case.  I agree they might be tough to sell but there's no chance we're going to sell for no benefit unless Xia is, effectively, asset stripping and there's no suggestion that's where we are.

Why would only get a credit of £1 million if we sell a player for £5 million?

but if we are as desperate for cash as it sounds you could see them being sold irrespective of FFP needs

If Xia is still here at the start of the season, I think Green and Davis might leave too.

Hope you’re not as off with this prediction as you were with Bruce. Although, if you are correct then there’s always the chance your Bruce prediction may come true ?
