What does slapping a big release clause on a player achieve?The problem is signing a new deal with us for more money makes it more difficult for them to leave so they’ll be reluctant to do so.
More money / longer contracts up front- or big release clauses would be better
cuts out low ball bids, the player knows where he standsWhat does slapping a big release clause on a player achieve?
It just puts a maximum value on the them, it doesn't stop the player wanting to leave or us selling them for less.
I don't doubt that the club makes it quite clear to the players where they stand anyway.cuts out low ball bids, the player knows where he stands
This is the correct answer. We pay more now than when we were promoted. IIRC 50k was about our top earner, and if reports are to be believed 80-90k is about the top earner now.Where's the option for 'we should continue to be increasing our salaries in line with our staged development plan'
So do you think Caciedo knows how much we’d sell him for ?I don't doubt that the club makes it quite clear to the players where they stand anyway.
And there's still nothing to stop a club bidding below the release clause if they think we'd be willing to sell.
It just stops other clubs pushing each other to offer more than we'd actually be wiling to sell for.
Not exactly, but I'm sure the players have some idea of how the club value them, and whether we'd be willing to sell in a given window.So do you think Caciedo knows how much we’d sell him for ?
On the one hand we accuse Arsenal of low balling us - on the other we say the club are water tight and would never out a valuation on a player
