Selling clubs, assuming that buying clubs are desperate, will ask for crazy money.
Buying clubs, not wanting to appear desperate, won’t want to pay crazy money.
And fans are desperate, for example:
With just over half an hour to go, the Premier League is not going to get much more than this is it:
“PREMIER LEAGUE TRANSFER TRACKER:
In: Bolton (Rasiak), Derby (Carroll, Stubbs), Everton (Gardner), Fulham (Kallio, Litmanen, Stalteri), Man City (Mancini), Sunderland (Reid), Wigan (Hagen), Tottenham (Gilberto)
Out: Arsenal (Gibbs, Randall), Bolton (Wilhelmsson, Michalik), Chelsea (Grant), Derby (Bywater, Nyatanga), Everton (Stubbs, Anderson de Silva), Fulham (Cook, Davis), Man City (Dabo, Miller), Middlesbrough (M Bates), Newcastle (Rozenhal), Reading (Henry, Pearce, Cox), Sunderland (Halford), Tottenham (Stalteri, Gardner)”
Why does football need something that so distorts the working of the market?
Oh yes, FIFA.
