I felt like costa rica was overrated. Personally, I prefer Mexico and Colombia. Food is not good in CR and restaurants are over priced.


Thanks pal. That’s the fucking holiday ruined now then...

Rice, plantains, and beans at the local sodas. No flavor. The chain restaurants cost more than the states. The beach should be just fine though. If you are single and looking for the best bars and clubs I can help you there.

If you want the best beach, Colombia has a beautiful island east of Nicaragua called San Andres.

Bobo's point is that if team A comes in and offers a certain amount of money, say 7 million, it doesn't necessarily mean that team B will come in and offer more if the initial 7 mil bid has been accepted. They'll likely offer 7 as well

Exactly.

How would that conversation go though?

"Can we have him for 7mill?"
"No"
"Ok....how about 7mill then?"
"Erm.....no...."
"Can that other team have him for 7mill?"
"No"
"In that case how does 7mill sound? Final offer"
"are you taking the fucking piss?"....click....dial tone.

If a figure is accepted by the club. It is down to the player in question to then decide which club he goes to.

If we want 7mil & one club offers 6 & another offers 7. We can tell 6m club to fk off. We may risk having an unhappy player on our hands but that's the risks you take.

 

If we seem happy to accept 7m then only an arse cheek type club would then try & hijack the deal & offer less than the club already willing to pay agreed fee by offering more wages & using media pressure to fk the selling club out of money by trying to effectively bribe the player & get him to force the selling club to accept less.

 

Standard stuff for arse cheek type clubs though tbf

Given that in my example the bid was accepted, no, it wouldn't go like that.

Sorry, didn't see that preamble to the statement.
I was going by the fact that we haven't accepted 7mill.

In the theoretical case that we were to accept 7million, another club could indeed match that offer and it would then be a negotiation on personal terms with the player.

I certainly don't think we should be coo-ing over offers of 7mill and should steer clear of anything less than that.
