    You are right, just had another look.
    Our current debt is estimated to be about $208m (whats that about £200m?)

    No idea what the exchange rate is but it must be close to that I suppose.

    I like how you’ve Both managed to do lots of research into how much debt we have looking through accounts.. but being able to Google $208m into £ is beyond you both :bandit:

    for info, it’s £175m

    <wah> the man, the legend, the myth. Weirdest transfer since Caulker. At least we're making a profit though.

    Celtic Fans will love him though. Due to join them, then joins us before going to Rangers.

    We paid his fee off with loan to preston believe it or not. so the 4mil or whatever represents gravy for us.

    Never really made sense from footballing side but the player got a big wage and more than he would have at celtic.

    Now he can go do what he can to have a career after making himself a nice packet for his retirement fund

    I think there's a 20% sell on clause so good news for Preston.

    The fee we paid for him was dirt cheap as well. 1.6m I think it was? Now I know not the greatest but he was a very solid and rated championship defender. Not sure how we got him quite so cheap, even with the sell on clause?

    this guy:

    upload_2022-7-18_11-57-20.jpeg

    he got 15mins in a friendly once.

    Signed for 0.5mil off preston cos he was almost out of contract and we neve rpaid any more add ons to them.

    played 23 games for sheff utd on loan last season which paid his fees off for us.

    @Jimmy Squarefoot favourite CB.

    that was with all the add ons. we never paid any cos he never played.

    he was going for a free to Celtic when we stepped in in the January and snagged him up as an emergency play.

    It was £500k with £1.1m in add ons. Presumably none of the add ons have been met because he hasn't played a single game for us so it was really cheap. Pleased that they put a sell on clause in there, means they make a small profit.

    Said at the time, but he was brought in as backup of course, but primarily to fill holes in the squad in training. Club found themselves very short of any CB options and it was a cheap somewhat experienced option

    on the topic of "holes for training"

    The squad is becoming reasonably trim at this point.

    GK: Adiran would be considered pure back up. Kelleher hasn't been seen this summer yet (was he on internationals)
    RB; nope
    CB: Phillips and Williams clearly out of their depth. van den berg perhaps?
    LB: Nope
    No 6: nope
    No 8: oxlade.
    Forwards in general nope.

    We now have a 25 man squad all of whom will play a part (bar ox probably)

    U21s are similar now. We have shed the weight to go down from u23s to u21 and are looking u19s at times. maybe just glatzel, Stewart and o'rourke as lads to go off on loan

    only 2 players on loan today (arroyo and lewis) who ouwl be sold for sure.

    I think being trim and not wasteful is no harm. Williams, phillips and van den berg should be sold off.

    Alisson, Kelleher Pitaluga
    Trent, Ramsay
    Robbo, tsimikas
    Konate, gomez
    VVD Matip
    Fabinho milner
    Elliott Henderson ox
    Thiago jones kieta
    Salah
    Nunez Jota Firmino
    Diaz Carvalho

    TBH people might say bobby in there but i think he will play a big part still.

    I think first team's ready to go chase trophies anyway.

    Still no real right sided forward to cover Mo properly - I’m guessing JK would push Elliott up there, or even ox.

    Contract was due to run out in 6 months and he was going to move to Celtic on a free.
