    That's the one! Not sure about the fee but I think it was a bit more than £25 grand. Certainly small beer compared to the sort of figures we're dealing in now.

      Wolves looking at paying 35 million for a right back too by all accounts...madness
      Yes, I was a bit taken aback when I heard this! This is the sort of money splashed out by the top six, not newly-promoted clubs. Still, it's a statement of intent, I suppose.

      I'd expect it from our northern neighbours but Shirley an Albion fan doesn't need to have the fact that spending doesn't equal success explained to him.
      *cough* It's a fun bet - I won't be bouncing this thread when Wolves are 10 points adrift at the bottom in April. I haven't decided on my life-changing bets yet ;)

      Giving the bookies £10 isn't all that high on my 'fun things to do' list, still whatever floats your boat.

      It's e/w so it's £20. A bit of fun that might last for a few months. No different to backing a 20/1 shot in the Grand National I'd have thought but there you've likely had your 'fun' bet ruined in 15 minutes. And I can afford a left-field punt now and again.

      Didn't we do this once? Sign a player, I think for free, then immediately sell him onwards before he played for a small sum, £25K or something (probably not that small for us in those days)

      We also did it with Mark Wright whilst at the Withdean, although he played a handful of games for us first. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mark...er,_born_1982)

      Darren Currie wasn’t at us for very long either, was he?

      Having just signed for Wolves, they are now (according to SSN) in advanced talks to sell him on to Stoke, supposedly for a quick £2,000,000 profit. All a bit odd, if you ask me. I wonder how much say Benik has had in all this wheeling and dealing. Who in their right mind would be happy to swap PL to go to Championsip..... STOKE.... of all places??
      Nice freshly-washed money no doubt.

      If companies in the world outside football bought an asset and immediately sold it on for a £2m profit there'd surely be questions being asked by the fraud squad...
      I used to work with someone who made a tidy profit doing this sort of thing. He would trawl eBay for items that were listed in 'wrong' areas get them at a low price because no one else was bidding on it, then re-list it in the 'right' (or more suitable) area so more of the people interested in the items saw them and bid for them.
