    Summer Transfer Window

    Players are paid wages whether loan or permy....no difference there. The difference is Use v Ownership....you want to own an asset if you think it will appreciate. Sometimes you can’t afford to buy assets that will appreciate, but you can loan them. It may be that some loans enhance your team/prospects e.g. Reed, Adarabioyo & without them, you might be susceptible to a lower placed finish. its not the case that loan = bad, buy = good...it’s more nuanced than that.

    On a point of accountancy principle....I know, sorry.......😳 Loan players cost you wages & loan fees... If you buy players they cost you wages & depreciation... Use v Ownership is the conundrum....the policy should be to bring in the best players that you can afford holistically, whether as purchases or loans, to achieve the objective of winning promotion. “...but we lose loan players at the end of every season...” yes, that is true & potentially disruptive, but equally, if Rovers sign someone decent & we get an offer in that’s deemed acceptable 12 months later, we can easily lose an owned player as well and not always at a massive profit if there is a release clause e.g. Craig Bellamy. In summary, it’s not always “good to buy” & “bad to loan”. It depends...if you sign players that don’t perform, their value falls. If they are loan players then it’s not your risk or detriment. The moral here is....sign good players... “This statement of the blindingly obvious is brought to you by BRFCS...” 🙂

    But...the BILLIONAIRE owners asked players to take a 12.5% pay cut to help to protect the future of the club & those employed by the club. Özil apparently refused to accept this because he wasn’t convinced as to the owners’ motives. Subsequently, once the majority of the players accept the cut; the BILLIONAIRE owners made 55 people redundant anyhow, despite the salary sacrifices of the players. In the meantime, Özil uses a large chunk of his salary to make his own charitable donations so as to ensure the money goes where he wants it to....as he doesn’t trust the owners. I guess I’m saying, I’m not so sure that Özil is entirely the bad guy here....

    Why is Mesut Özil being singled out for opprobrium in this thread ?

    & the billionaire US owners who asked the millionaire players to take a pay cut to protect jobs ? 🤔

    Footballers use of tenses in reported speech...in a way that nobody in real life ever would.... ”Well, he’s got the ball on the byline and he’s cut inside and whipped in one to the near post and we’re in front but the penalty changes everything and the ref...he’s seen it as a push and I don’t know where he gets that from but at the end of the day thems the breaks you have to deal with....Clive...”

    Clubs are their own worst enemies....at the first sniff of promotion, expect some creative loopholes to be used either to keep the best talent or to sign new players. And let’s be frank...if we did it to keep Dack & thereby get into the play offs, we are not going to clutch our pearls and express shock & horror are we ? The riches of the PL are too great, too tempting, too seductive to sustain compliant behaviour. This smacks of “something must be done....this is something....let’s do it...” IMHO.

    Don’t see how this can effectively be enforced to be frank...
