hang on a minute iain.....if you listed those players for their resell values they would be get bids from unmanaged sides and be transferred, the only reason yours havn't budged is because you havn't been arsed to do anything about it! get off your backside man! (in a nice way
) sure, you would get much less than you might anticipate on a few but not the top top ones! we've all had to accept losing value on certain players so don't think the world is against only you and yours.
However, I agree that these unmanaged clubs need to go soughting after players but in real life would roque santa cruz currently fetch the same fee he would have 3 seasons ago? no. why? cos he's been on the bench for the best part of 18 months dreaming of days of yore. same should go for players in CF....i think its realistic that a player doesnt achieve the best possible value if he's not been getting any action.
Of course i accept that roque santa cruz isn't Eden Hazard or whoever else but you'd still get top whack for guys like him Iain, you've got some cracking 'chaffe' compared to the rest of us! Still, we've all had a fair while and advanced notice of these (potential) upcoming changes so really the question is....why have you left it so late iaian? if a manager is naive enough to think he can sit on 75 players and keep them all happy by polishing lionel messi's boots then more fool them to be honest.
However, there definitely needs to be more scope for these unmanaged clubs to make bids for players though, but that shouldn't be just because Iaian's just realised he's got 15 players to shift and will lose money, we've all had to deal with that, its just that Iain most likely has more of them! I feel for you Iain but c'mon, how long have we known about this now?
This is only a light hearted dig of course...nice to see you back around Iain. now....i'll give you £3m for Hazard. write it down next week, yeah
