"Football has got a problem with its governance, particularly below the Football League," he added.

No sh!t Sherlock!   :banghead;


There's a link on the Ollie Bayliss Twitter account where Cleeve phoned in and spoke to Robbie Savage about Dover and Lynn.

It's worth a listen. Probably asks more questions than gives any answers.

I remember back in the 90s ,we sold Mark Paul to Southampton for around £70,000, that was a big fee for non league football then, and a few years later he returned for nothing, that's the way  to do business, my point being that at todays prices Carey should be worth at least £200,000, plus any sell on fee.

Nice thought but I suppose the value will depend a lot on if you are buying or selling.

On the one hand we are told there are ex league full time professionals available for £400 per week, on the other hand there are player's where their Clubs would obviously like to get top dollar when selling.

Maybe a lot will depend if the buying Clubs have had the reset button pressed yet and how many of them will be operating on smaller playing budgets next season?

How do you get to 250k B &G ?

Sorry, I misread your post and what you meant about the initial fee.

250k would have been nice though.  :laughcry:

If anyone offers 50k, snap their hands off.

As far as money goes, our most valuable player?  What do you think?   :dontknow::

I think (as you have probably gathered) , that you are both well wide if the mark ....and the key to any deal will be the add on clauses, relating to further payments for  a certain number of 1st team appearances and a sell on clause. I would have thought an initial fee of £30-£50K plus add ons is still peanuts for a Championship/Prem league side.

I'm sure that 50k is still peanuts for a Champioship side. I don't think that's really the point though.

An initial payment of 30k-50k would value him at a quarter of a million plus.

Sorry, but I can't really can't see that, or anywhere near it.

IC surely wouldnít want to stand in a players way of progressing.  So maybe a nominal fee with add onís if he makes the grade ?   Canít see a club wanting to pay much up front for a Non League.  For example when Jamie Vardy went from Non League to League Football the up front fee was 17k.

????? Really ???

I would think the Club would be pleased with anything around those figures. It has ben mentioned that  there's ex League players willing to play for £400  a week, so that presumably means lower player wages are expected for next season. I  would guess that means that Clubs are expecting more reslistic transfer fees as well.

Well, have to say it surprises me that two Clubs hoping for PL next season are interested (no disrespect to the lad), but I suppose stranger things have happened.

What's he worth?

Tough times ahead


Same for everyone, its not just a football or sports thing.

Let's hope that's taken account by all the powers that be when planning for the very difficult years that will be ahead of us.

It is what it is, and we will all have to adapt accordingly. We won't be going back to "normal" for a long, long time.

BBC this morning:

Covid: Masks and social distancing 'could last years'

People may need to wear face coverings and socially distance for several years until we return to normality, a leading epidemiologist has predicted.

Mary Ramsay, the head of immunisation at Public Health England, said basic measures could be in place until other countries successfully roll out jabs.

She also said a return of big spectator events required careful monitoring and clear instructions about staying safe.


Prof Chris Whitty, the UK government's chief medical adviser, told MPs earlier this month that it was hoped "simple interventions like washing hands, face masks where appropriate, test-and-trace, and above all vaccines" would keep the virus controlled beyond the summer.

Sir Patrick Vallance, the chief scientific adviser, has also said face masks could be needed in certain situations if the number of infections rises in the winter, but that it was possible people will naturally behave in a way that promotes social-distancing without the need for restrictions.

It's quite unbelievable how much time these processes take the FA..............surely something has to change within the NL/FA set up before next season.

Q) Whats going to change in the future?

A) Sweet FA!
