February Football Thread: Champions Elect


#1281

May well be that he wanted a massive signing on fee, but for accounting reasons they’d rather it spread out, so are paying him that fee in terms of wages.


#1282

£83m in wages.
What’s the tax rate in Italy?
He’s probably giving £40m to a fascist government


#1283

CHEESED OFF


#1284

With £83m he could buy 8.3% of Spurs’s Toilet Bowl, or the equivalent of The Cheese Wing.

Funny how things come full circle.


#1285

know all big footy clubs are scummy entities and I’m fine with them being taken for a ride but can’t help kinda think less of anyone who even wants that much money
still hope it works out for him i guess


#1286

obviously won’t quite work out this way, but I do wonder how much Mbappe could command in wages and a signing fee if he let his contract at PSG run down.


#1287

400 grand and a penny. the lad hates Ramsey


#1288

I’d like to think he’s pushing so hard for huge wages so that he can give that bit extra to charity every month.


#1289

Oh yeah his charity work means a lot to him


#1290

Yeah, but what is he going to give to the Italian government?


#1291

I think you’ll find Mr Wenger observed this phenomenon first.

(partly covering his own arse though, obviously)


#1292

As much as I like to think I came up with it down the pub, I probably didn’t.


#1293

This was actually the case for Adebayor and he gets (and got) absolutely slated


#1294

Adebayor’s wife is actually called Charity…Amazing.


#1295

Big fan of adebayor. Left arsenal and basically devoted the rest of his career to winding them up


#1296

Absolutely bloody love the squad of the team he plays for now that is impossible to spell as well.


#1297

Togo?


#1298

Hahahahahaha


#1299

Anyone any info on getting a Dortmund tix for a regular league game (@Severed799?)

Will I be able to get one through the site/ stadium or is it touts only?

I come from a club where they give you 10 free tickets with every Oilball purchased.

Absolute team of strange men

Think Turan is in prison for waving a gun around in a nightclub now
