  1. Well. What a club. I'd kind of backed away from posting because the club seems to be such a mess I'm not really enjoying being a fan. This just makes me think I've done the right thing.
  2. Not going to pretend to be an expert, but how can you have a sell-on clause for an out-of-contract player? The development fee is supposed to compensate smaller clubs for their costs in developing players, and uses a set formula. As I understand it, it's not a contract between clubs, so you can't add clauses to it. Besides, if the player is out of contract their current club has no power to demand any clauses - they can't withhold transfer of his registration. But, as I said, I could be wrong. Just think that if this was the case then every single such transfer would include such a clause, because why would anyone not include it?

  5. It's Schrodinger's transfer, both on and off at the same time.
  6. I believe the Home Grown Rule is a PL rule, not an FA rule. Not sure if there's any equivalent for FL clubs, couldn't spot one in the current Handbook.
  7. Home grown players don't have to be English - "a Player who, irrespective of his nationality or age, has been registered with any Club (or club) affiliated to The Football Association or the Football Association of Wales for a period, continuous or not, of three Seasons or 36 months prior to his 21st birthday". So that includes, for example, Bellerin, Christensen, Schneiderlin, Sigurdsson, Schmeichel and Lukaku.
  8. Elijah Anuoluwapo Oluwaferanmi Oluwatomi Oluwalana Ayomikulehin Adebayo. Now that's a name. The registrar must've had to change biros halfway through.
  9. One of our ex-youth players who was on a pro deal seems to have left the club - Chinedu Uche to Glossop. Doesn't say it's a loan, but it could be.
  10. "Freeing up space" for loans isn't really that relevant any more. You can have as many loan signings as you like in your squad. There are only a couple of restrictions: - no more than five loan signings can be named on your teamsheet; - no more than four loan signings from any single club during the season, of which only two can be aged over 23.
