The Banter Era still lives on :')
Looks like ive lost the bet


f**k YOU MONOCO, SELL EVERY OTHER DAMN BASTARD IN THE TEAM, and you don't even negotiate for Lemar :(
From what im hearing tho, its not Wengers fault, but the higher ups.


They all useless, need to get rid, what does Gazidis actually do? Dick Law is as bad as Liverpools negotiator

Santi is heading back to fitness. One of my favorite players. Might just be what the doctor ordered for Arsenal
Rumor of the day

Afc set to sell mustafi and sign van dijk
Lets buy Van Dijk first
+2
lol
FVCK THAT! I WANT TO SEE KOSTAFINAC IN ACTION!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
i might take that gamble Niko, mustafi isn't that good like that first few games he started undefeated. After that his performance is below par for me.
Damn Barca on Neymar, just let it go, dont embarrass yourself
+1
On the other hand, we should all hope that UEFA or FIFA or some court designates this transfer as illegal. The transfer is done and Neymar wont leave PSG now, but PSG or PSG owners should get at least a fine from this.

If this doesnt happen, this kind of set up (Qatar paying Neymar to pay his own fee) will happen more and more and prices will go off the roof with money coming from anywhere. Liberation claues will just get too high, it will create a huge mess. It clearly is a hijack of the FFP.

PSG or their owners should be hit hard, the message should be very clear. UEFA and FIFA must take action otherwise it will go out of control.
Chargui, ye that is completely different.. what Barca doing is just sour shiit and pathetic.. I agree UEFA and FIFA should do something about that
Football has got less and less interesting as it has become more and more about money laundering.
+1
PSG bought Neymar and already sold enough jerseys to buy Mbappe. True players of FFP
+2
thats not how it works. nike or w/e is making the money of shirt sales, not psg. psg has a contract with the shirt makers, thats the sponsorship deal for 30-40 million a season.
+3
that was sarcasm i guess.
+4
PSG and every other club probably onl get like 5% from shirt sales
SIF so its only every other club where shirts sponsors get the money, but in United case its United gets money from shirt sales ;D
+9
United has highest revenue period. Go to any source and check.
Dani has a very genuine question...I'm sure many fans across the world have same question. How only united make money from Jersey sales and recovery transfer fee and not other big clubs. Is it some type of special contract terms which nobody is aware of.
+3
^ No it's the same for everyone, i don't know what you're talking about Dani. I've not stated otherwise for Utd or any club. When you talk about revenue it's matchday/ticket, tv/broadcasting for league and cups, and commercial sponsorships.

The shirt sale stuff is a myth I keep hearing on this forum/website. When you buy a utd shirt from a retail outlet, the money is going straight to Adidas. Always has been, always will be. The retail company pays the club XX amount per year to print those shirts, and over a set amount of profit, clubs usually have a profit-sharing deal in place in case a lot more shirts are sold than anticipated just to make sure the club's not getting shafted.
+1
SIF - What you explained is understanding of every football fan about jersey sales and how revenue is generated. But, some people came-up with myth jersey sales helps player cover the transfer fee and everyone was taken by surprise.

Yes some star players like Hazard, Ozil ,Pogba ,Coutinho etc help club sell more jersey and it was always the case...But, this myth came-up recently because fans are trying to find ways to justify transfer fee with transfer fees going up season after season
+3
I don't even get why fans feel compelled to defend their club when they just bought a player. It's as if you are justifying why you spent money out of your pocket. You haven't. The club has. I don't care if the player cost the club 15 mil or 50 mil, as long as he does well for my team, who gives a crap?

Players can come in for free and I could label them a flop if they start taking up a spot on the pitch and not delivering. They could come in for 90 mil and I could still think they are a wonderful addition if United is better off with him on the field than playing for a rival.

This shirt sales thing is an insane excuse people cling onto when they don't even need one. I think partially people do that because they probably bashed a rival club for spending big money on a player they wished their own team had bought. Like a lot of United fans did (including myself) when City were on their first couple buying sprees a few years back. After I've chastised them for spending crazy money on players, I feel compelled to defend why it is OK for United to do so 3 years later and the shirt sale thing is a cop out.
SIF why I said that, cause I constantly see Man U justifying huge amount spent on players and that his shirt sales will cover it, which is absolute bs.. I think may be its all started from Ibra saying, that his shirt sales alone will pay for Pogba fee, which he was pretty much talking out of his arsee, and fans took it like a statement. I was a bit sarcastic in my first post btw ;D
+4
Lmao I think Ibra did say that, no it's wrong, money you pay is going to the distributor/retail company. The club does earn some of that money back via image rights and other sponsorship perks that come with signing marketable players.

"Despite the nonsense you may have heard about Zlatan Ibrahimovic shirt sales generating £50m for Manchester United, which would far exceed his wages, it’s simply not true. In fact, United don’t even automatically receive the 10-15% industry-standard royalty payment, no doubt because the up-front £75m annual payment is so large. United’s royalty payment only kicks in once a certain number of shirts are sold."

Let’s also assume that United’s royalty kicks in after three million shirts are sold, and the club receive a 15% royalty on each subsequent shirt sold. Assuming a price of £70 per shirt, that’s an additional £21m in gross sales from 300,000 shirts. Manchester United’s cut of that would be just over £3m. Now, £3m is not an insignificant amount, but it offsets less than 20% of what Ibrahimovic will likely cost the club this season (wages, agent fee, signing bonus, image rights deal).

So, at best, United are likely to see around £3m in additional revenue. While certainly not a paltry sum, it doesn’t come close to covering his costs, let alone help United earn an additional £50m. Put simply, there’s a reason why Adidas has earned more in the last six months than Manchester United, one of the highest-earning football clubs in the world, has earned in its 138-year existence."

- The Guardian

https://www.theguardian.com/football/the-set-pieces-blog/2016/aug/24/transfer-window-market-myths

So while there may be some revenue sharing after a certain amount of shirts are sold the vast majority of money clubs make from shirt sales is made through the annual sponsorship deals with companies like adidas, nike, etc.

Wilshere gets a red card with the U23s vs Man City lol Dude lost his cool and shoves the kid (after being clattered into intentionally)...kid falls down holding his face like a little wimp.
LOL. Here's the video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2ByaL37k0Go
As i heard from one of my friends, he played well (although U-23).
At the back of my head, I still want him to succeed here and given the situation he can make his way into team if he stays injury free. Xhaka for now is not on form (especially with defensive duties) and Jack is the only player who is so similar to Santi.
He still have that sudden burst of speed and ability to past players in the middle of the field.
Xhaka and Ozil have the same problem. They don't trace back, when the ball
is lost. Or do it halfway and then stop (like that did at Stoke). Fail to understand why AW can not fix it during training. Then just stand up and cry "ruuuun". No, he and Steve both will sit like mummies time after time. Pathetic.
If you cannot train a player, he (or you) should leave.
+1
I heard he was getting tackled like that throughout the game. That one the player didnt even try to get the ball
If I were JW and I've been out months injured, then some prick decides to clatter me from behind when I don't even have the ball, I would also be angry with that 'challenge'.

Deserved his red card but I can't pretend I would have let it go if someone did that to me.
+1
If Wenger doesn't sign a cm and wilshere finally stays injury free he could get his spot back. Big problems in midfield without cazorla.
Yes. Big opportunity for wilshere to step up right now. Sucks for Elneny and Coq, but hey... They had all of last season to prove themselves and didn't do jack
Rooney! EDERSON!? WALKER! HAH~!
wow two ridiculous red cards in the city/everton game.
Schneiderlin scolded aguero for diving, but he clipped him first and that was a stupid slide. Walker was just being stupid for his 2nd...

f**k those orcs
Wow, this forum has become a ghost town compared to 6 months ago. There was a time when i could refresh the page every few hours and read something new. Sad. Make Footytube great again!
Quite a few users have gone...

It's just like Barça: the end of a cycle and not enough quality recruits xD
nah, six months ago was like this. go back to 10-12 months.
This place stopped booming like 2 years ago around the time cloudst started laying off.
+1
Peterze exactly
the whole of footytube has been declining not just this page.
i remember a time when the website would go down due to over-activity whenever there was a big team playing, even the comment sections of the videos were full of comments and discussions nowadays you would struggle to find a single one on any video and also there used to be a popular and active forum scene like the funny captions or the wag one.
none of those things happen anymore and honestly i dont know why footytube suffered this fate, at one time it looked very promising, people thought it could be a sort of facebook for footy lovers from all over the world but it didnt happen unfortunately.
+1
Spot on, James.

I've noticed it on all the pages, sometimes days go by without a comment. Spurs forum is all but dead, their users found other media through which to stay active.

This has been declining for a couple of years now.

Pretty sure most arsenal ex forum members have died of heart attacks.

ALready a few years back all the mods were saying that the owners of the site didnt want to do any development. It's probably a big reason the mods (Cloudst, etc.) went away, because they apparently tried to work on some developments but didnt get any means form the owners to get anything done.
+1
Yeah the owners are also pretty useless. Thats what drove everyone away
Is that any related forum available ?
