Late Irons deals can represent good news

The latest development on Jesse Lingard from Cand H’s northern man Terry Robbins revealed the reason why  – despite the moans and groans from some – we should never be too concerned about late transfer deals.

Indeed. more than that; it shows why the vast majority go through at the last minute.

Terry  revealed that United have had no offers for Lingard at all and as a result fear a very low offer given the agents involved have been unable to whip up an auction for him.

That affects the fee and personal terms which hurts the  representatives too – GOOD!

I’ve lost count of the times I’ve heard the cry go up: ‘Just pay them what they want’ which is a similar piece of logic to doing the same for a house being offered at £400,000 when its worth is closer to £250,000.

Clubs and agents were quoted earlier as wanting £30 million for Lingard – then £20m, now £10m when the fee could well be down to £5m on the last day.

Start supporting Claret and Hugh today Claret & Hugh’s team of creators work with passion and pride to bring you the quality of content that keeps you coming back for more. Support for our creators, however big or small, will help us keep your Hammers content fresh, frequent and loyal to the club. £5 per month £10 per month £20 per month £50 per year

That will affect the wages and the agent’s fee. So GOOD again. The money doing to agents is ludicrous and goes straight out of the game not helping it one little bit.

As for United CandH FB follower nails it with this quote: “Makes me laugh. They spend 84m on a useless HM, pay a 36 year old £480k per week and now they’re worried about not cashing in on JL. If we do get him that’s great, if not I’m sure DM will have a plan B. Time will tell.”

Last minute deals – if they are the right one suit me despite us hoping some can be done at sensible figures early – but that’s unlikely!

  1. Generally, I do believe that the majority of us supporters have learnt a little self-control from a manager who we know can be trusted, and we understand the direction in which we are travelling.
    We have all brought into the manager’s ideas and vision, and along with a reduction in the unhelpful rumour mill, we can finally tell the difference between the BS and the possibles.

    It is great to see that a club like Man U who used to think that they had a monopoly on common sense within the game, floundering desperately with every decision that they make these days.
