the days of big money signings are over

Post  cyprussyd on 2017-08-04, 9:33 am

The Sunderland boss continues his search for bargain deals as the new season begins, and again insisted on Thursday night that the days of big money signings are over. He told BBC Newcastle: “We’re shopping at a different level to a lot of other clubs, we’re not in a position where we can go and spend five, ten, fifteen million on players. The club has been there, done that and ended up in quite a bit of trouble. “What I’ll try and do whether it be free transfers, loans, small fees or reasonable fees, is bring players who are here for the right reasons, to work hard rather than just pick up a wage packet, which has obviously been a severe problem in the past.”

Players protective contracts are killing football as they are paid regardless of attitude, fitness or commitment to the club.  There was an article by a Crystal Palace Scandinavian player about training commitment and he reckoned Adybayor was lazy in his loan to Palace as he was also being paid by Portsmouth and Spurs.

The scales are tilted against clubs like ours who have nothing to offer players at a higher level other than inflated contracts then forced to sell for peanuts at the twelve month point to recover at a least a portion of the fee.  A classic was Giacchoreni who tripled his wages, spent a lengthy time injured and went for a fraction of his true value.
