Can someone clarify. Is it £100k up front with add ins, or could the deal be worth £100k plus?

“To put it in gentleman’s terms if you’ve been out for a night and you’re looking for a young lady and you pull one, some weeks they’re good looking and some weeks they’re not the best. Our performance today would have been not the best looking bird but at least we got her in the taxi. She weren’t the best looking lady we ended up taking home but she was very pleasant and very nice, so thanks very much, let’s have a coffee”

Nobody knows, but the EPPP means that a Class 1 academy can sign young players for a song. Chances of Middlesbrough paying much at all is slim, this being the case.

It's one of the reasons why a number of clubs have dropped their academies, the biggest being Brentford. With the EPPP in place, chances 0f recouping investment are very slim.

That's not to say that a club such as ourselves shouldn't try to develop young players. If we can break even from it, we'll be doing well.

Does it matter? Seriously, all that matters is how good someone thinks he is and what they offered.

Yeah I think it does mate . Here’s a player who hasn’t hardly played and yet has been stolen basically by Boro . The whole debate on this thread has been if we are right or wrong to have let this happen so I think it’s pretty important/interesting to know exactly how people who do know the lad rate him. .
