Rooney doing pretty good considering derby financial sh*t they are in... Would be safe mid table without the points deduction.

Rosenior is the brains of the operation, and I'd be very happy snapping him up before much longer.

Rising to 5m, great stuff for Adelaide.

I am not sure exactly how the Salary Cap works here in the A League,but how much of that juicy fee can AUFC spend on bringing in players/bolstering their squad ?

Marquees are outside the cap.

They could also use some of that money investing in other things around the club.

Keeping in mind they only get 15% of that fee as a sell-on.

Thought McGree was meant to be off to Celtic actually.

Boro have got some decent ins for the promotion push.

This is both absolute sh*t from Jan Aage (which I predicted) and from Haaland.

The club is asking for an answer as your ******* manager has been offering you to every Arab under the sun. The decision ain’t yours where you go next, it’s your managers.

Painting the club in a bad light for ‘pressuring’ you when they need to know if they need to start planning for next year is so ******* disrespectful, when the situation has been created by team Haaland.

fu** the Raiola show.

Dortmund knew the score when they signed him, that’s part of the reason they were able to get him ahead of bigger clubs. You can’t then complain about it after reaping the benefits of having such a great player in your team.

If you accept that you’re a stepping stone club then you have to let him make his next decision in his own time.

Way to miss the point champ, and I absolutely can complain about it. His countryman journalist is also trying to create headlines for clicks, and it’s gross.

Every club that signs a player from that agent will have this problem too. Yes, his next club as well.

You might have had a small point if you could refrain yourself from using the classic ‘bigger clubs/stepping stone club’ line. But you failed there.

Haaland chooses which club he wants to go to.

He won't sign the contract unless it's the one he wants

Don’t be obtuse. You know full well that Dortmund are a stepping stone club, it’s nothing to be ashamed of. The fact that Haaland thought Dortmund was the best place for him to further develop as a player speaks extremely highly of the club.

But they knew when they signed him that he was using them for that purpose, which is fine because they got the benefit of having such a fantastic player in their team.

Both parties knew what the situation was so now Haaland should be able to make his decision in his own time, however annoying his agent might be during the process.

Lol. Don’t be naive. If Haaland wants Barcelona but they won’t pay the Raiola/Alfie Haaland bonuses, then he absolutely won’t be going there.

I am totally all for this. Freeze him out.

Unfortunately we are also after Adeyemi. So the circus continues.

So then this comes with it. I know you aren't choosing to sign them so you're annoyed but you have to accept if your club is going to sign these players this will happen.

Most of the mega clubs will pay the fees / transfer money if he chooses them.

Barca may make it work selling de jong or whatever. Which feels like robbing peter for Paul
