Did they ? We just know reports from various translations. We know they said they wouldn't sell for less than a figure, but I don't think they said that if anyone gave that figure they would sell. If we'd offered X up front then they could still have declined it, or waited. It's not Tesco's, Beric doesn't have a tag round his neck with a price on. It's all up for grabs.
And I think you are getting confused with buyout clauses where players have contracted amounts they will be released for. Not what happened here.

And no, I'm not getting confused with buyout clauses thanks.

So a day nearer the close date and still no clues as to who we will get in as a striker. As the Beric deal is more or less dead now I bet it's going to be a loan from Chelsea when the loan window re-opens isn't it?

Either that or the club will turn around and say they tried for a striker but they now actually have every confidence in Nick Blackman to take on the role for the next 6 months at least....

All Clarke can do is tell Hammond who he wants, it's Hammonds job to get those players in. It really is that simple.

I don't think you can knock Hammond for failing to get in an unrealistic target. By your rules its still Clarke's fault for not giving Hammond another target / agreeing to move on.

Not that I agree anyone's at fault.




Hammond is very good at getting a bargain and selling players for profit, however he is very poor at closing deals for players other teams are interested in.



Exactly this, although when things get competitive he may be hampered by those that hold the purse strings at the club.

If we end up with Dom Solanke for six months.... it wouldn't be the end of the world.

So nothing to suggest they would have sold at that price. Have you ever bought or sold a house ?

And if you aren't confused by buyout clauses you sure make it seem like you are, your arguments would make sense in that context but they don't in any other.

- I said Rapid named their asking price.
- You replied "Did they?"
- I've produced a direct quote where they've named their asking price.

We move on.

Yep, but the club played their cards close to their chest - wasn't as if Watts or anyone else had mooted the move. I'm positively hoping that they're doing something similar with an incoming striker.

"We have set a price of €5.4 million."
Is that an asking price: Yes or No?

The rest is irrelevant.

you've not got much of an idea about debating have you !
Naming a price is irrelevant to your start point that we could have got him in July. It was never an option.
