    Probably.

    But the price can change depending on far more than just the payment structure. My understanding is that the price nowadays is just a broad expression of a player's value, to see if it's worth starting negotiations, but it's no longer the fixed part of the deal in the way it once was when the player's contract was more or less just a matter of accepting whatever wage was on offer with perhaps a few minutes of traditional haggling and a few quid's bonus and a motor thrown in.

    Contracts between clubs are hugely more complicated than they used to be. Player's contracts are too. Sometimes there are other parties to be considered including sponsors. Sometimes compromises have to be reached or new circumstances have to be considered that can reduce a player's value to the buying club who then have to decide whether, by sticking to the original indicated price they are happy to pay more than they had effectively agreed. If they are not happy the may lose the deal, and it could appear that they've gone back on their word, or are re-trading as some people put it. Equally the selling club have decisions to make, and they may be reluctant sellers to start with.

    There's a host of reasons why things change during negotiations and there's nearly always an agent stirring away like mad!

    I could be wrong. And some deals are straightforward. I just think it's wrong to make assumptions about transfers in the way we often tend to do.

    I think you're only scratching the surface of this, you need to consider...

    nectar points and whether he's going to be charged 5p for a carrier bag.

    Seriously when we need to clarify when the week starts it's time to go for a lie down.

    The Goat's last piece of ITK is the only really believable bit I've heard for a while and coincidentally is also something that could have came from the read only section during any of the last 20 transfer windows (with different managers named instead of Poch).

    Same shit, different window.

    I'm just sitting here patiently for some ITK to come through about Kovacic. I can sense this being as painful as the Isco scenario last summer.

    You tried to make me look silly so I returned the favour. If you have to put up with it on a daily basis maybe it's because you bring it on yourself?

    I study Chinese Philosophy and I am doing my PhD in philosophy. So I am kind of Confucius ITK. I can confirm that Confucius didn't say that
