I fear the same and wonder what effect all this will have on the morale of the team and management. I can see a flat display coming on. Or will it be a fired up let's show 'em one? Tomorrow will tell.It's definitely taken the excitement away from tomorrow and I suspect we may struggle.
Who knows what will happen but it really wouldn’t surprise me if this backfires on Arsenal. I doubt there’s a coach that wants Caicedo more than Potter. Chelsea have the money and have shown they’ll spend it. This has opened the door for them to pounce with a ridiculous offer and, remarkably, not even look like the bad guys. Could be Mudryk 2.More likely that Arsenal stand a decent chance of winning a league title and Moises could be part of that, at just 21.
In an earlier post, someone said Caicedo’s former club will get 30% of the sale profit.Whilst I understand resentment about this we are no different in how we actually get these players, I suspect there is even more anger from their fans when the realisation dawns they sold the player for only £6m yet we sell them for £60m plus.
As stated in this thread this is a massive food chain so unless we are repeatedly in the Champions League, win the league regularly and also cup competitions we really have to live with this.
Or alternatively stay as a lower league club.
The benefit to BHA would be a happier/richer player and recognition that his status in the team is far above his current contract, whilst not holding him back.Do German clubs really adjust a contract like that, with benefits to the player and nothing at all for the club? Seems a bit weird. We could offer him more money and add a release clause for him, but there'd have to be something for us, like an extra year.

We will have to agree to disagree. I am very much of the opinion that we always operate in a particular way in the transfer market which is why we sell at our asking price.
Fair play to them for inserting that clause but the principal is the same either we accept this is what happens when you are a smaller Premier League club or we just bugger off back to the lower leagues where we were - Pompey at home anyone ?In an earlier post, someone said Caicedo’s former club will get 30% of the sale profit.
He isn't going to lose value between now and the summer. If he had 18 months on his contract then yes that would be a risk but he has 2.5 years. He'll be worth the same in the summer as he is now even if he doesn't kick a ball again for us.It really doesn’t become irrelevant. Would suggest it’s naïve to think otherwise. We simply aren’t going to put ourselves in a position - if our price isn’t reached - of having a player a disruptive and unhappy player sat on our books not playing and losing value.
The only thing which is in our favour is that this feels very agent driven and we might be able to re-integrate him as the window closes so soon.
The poster appears to have a problem with a big mouth.I’m puzzled by your post. RDZ is entirely in tune with Bloom and Barber on transfer policy.
AGENTS. He works for the agents.Categoric proof again that Romano is a fraud and a stooge for big clubs.
I think it's a clever move from the club. It takes him away from the rest of the squad - as Bozza said, it's almost certainly a reaction to his agent telling them he wouldn't be in anyway - and it gives his agent no leverage. What's he going to say - Moises won't play for the rest of the season? No chance. Wait it out and if Arsenal offer £100m then fine.
He was being a twat in the background as well.There is one player that comes out of the Cucarella, Trossard and Caicedo transfer sagas looking classy and professional.
See my previous responseHe wasn't worth £60m when he left.
Independiente Del Valle will be getting 20% (some say 30%) - a HUGE sum for them.
You need a new map. Liverpool and the rest of Merseyside have lovely beaches. Sandy rather than pebbled……..And NONE of those places have a beach
Again, it's perfectly possible for both...He's not refused. Keep up at the back....
Of course Graham Potter would NEVER do that, because he’s perfect.First comments about Trossard happened more than a week before we had heard anything from him or his agent. It was handled very poorly.
The club left Trossard & his agent with little option but to go out and give their own version of the events.
