Undisclosed Fee – but only in SE7

The management at charlton don’t really seem to understand the meaning of the word ‘ undisclosed’ – maybe the word has no direct translation in Walloon. it doesn’t really work if one party to the transfer disclose it , that way it becomes disclosed rather than undisclosed . According to the entire city of Liverpool and every informed and respectable journalist , apparently they paid £3.5m for a bloke who is quite frankly going to be the best defender in England since Rio Ferdinand , John Terry and Des Walker .

When  I read Katriens words on the cafc website , I am also struck by what a load of nonsense it is – frankly joe might well be a lovely boy who buys his mother flowers at the weekend and we all love him – but as a charlton fan – or chief executive- I’m not joes mate and all I care about is what does it mean for our club , how will it affect our team , what does it mean for our finances , how will it help finance player recruitment.

when people leave my business , I might briefly comment on how great they are but mostly I concentrate on how great everything else will be in the future and how the new people will be so much better.

Even though the fee is derisory and a fraction of his worth , I don’t think the wailing and gnashing of teeth is sensible yet until we see who comes in over the next few weeks . Admittedly , the new owners have made lots of awful player recruitment decisions , pub player lepoint being the latest , but they’ve also made some decent acquisitions too and it wouldn’t take a lot more luck and decent player acquisition to move us up to play off contenders .

keep the faith – and make sure you disclose that to your mates.

  1. Yeah but it makes a bit of a mockery of Valley Gold I reckon cos less face it you pay into it to support the younger players but they aint got no loyalty dahn our gaff n run n jump as soon as another big club comes callin.

    • Yes very upsetting indeed, but for once a young man who has come across very unassuming, but it appears that there must have been a clause in his contract and it sounds complicated, but just about sums it up Liverpool holding out for 50 MILLION for Sterling and give us peanuts.
      I know and I have been a CAFC supporter for over 50 years and I know and indeed the Liverpol supporters would want in their team, it is this highly thought of youngster Gomez. Why oh why was not the clause higher, for goodness sake

  2. One does not know the contract details. It will be possible to discern our Academy’s profit on young JG from the published accounts won’t it? Or it should be. I expect there are add-ons and anyway why are you inclined to believe the scousers over our own PR people…. Oh hang on a mo….
