    There is no way Warnock would continuously chase and put the effort in he is to try and get a deal done for someone who doesn't want to be here. It's against the whole ethos he's built.

    Did he take big Sol with him, you know, whack the guy over the head and drag him onto the plane?

    I honestly believe ccfcwelshlad - a bloke on a messageboard - more than I believe the media.

    Sneaky Warnock: Cardiff manager holds meeting with agent and target after game on Tuesday
    By Tom Coast -
    9th January 2019
    SHARE

    By now, if you’re a Cardiff fan, you’ll probably know who Emiliano Sala is and why Neil Warnock is interested in him.


    Just in case you don’t, just know he’s scored 12 goals in 17 league games for Nantes, and would probably solve a few goalscoring issues at Cardiff City Stadium.

    However, there’s the slight issue that the Argentinean striker isn’t all that thrilled about joining a Premier League team currently in a relegation battle, but a France Football journalist on Monday suggested money could really talk to him if it came down to it.

    Nantes would be quite happy to sell, as €25m would be a massive amount of money for them, but, as things stand, there hasn’t been any progression in talks.

    [​IMG]But, and it’s a big one, it seems Cardiff aren’t ready to give up as Ouest-France claim both Warnock and Willie McKay, a famous English agent, were spotted at Stade de la Beaujoire on Tuesday for Nantes 2-0 win over Montpellier.

    After the game, the pair are said to have met with the 28-year-old, which the Ligue 1 side weren’t aware of at the time (they will be now, however).

    Sneaky, sneaky.

    Apparently the club became aware that Cardiff is twinned with Nantes which has knocked a couple of quid off the asking price. A similar situation arose some years back when the mayor of the French City was on the market for a new telly. Cardiff let him have the old big screen from Ninian Park for a the knock down price of £150 and some old lawnmower engines.

    Roll on February 1st.

    We will have a month full of excuses from the club, and people on forums and social media thinking they are all ITK. Cringe as fuck.


    And one thing that really gets on my dandruff is when did football suppprters become accountants? Swear their opinion on value and wages really matters, and they were using their own money to fund deals.

    Tans a rich man, put your hand in your pocket, or if youve had your fingers burned go and put them in ice and sell the club to someone who still wants to have a go.

    Is money the issue here though? If we believe what’s in the press, we’re prepared to pay £20m for a striker and were about to shell out another £8m for a midfielder.
    End of the day Fulham spent £100m last summer and we all know how that’s worked out

    So if we pay the money then players will come, even though you say that players don't want to play for Colin the dinosaur?

    What is Warnock's obsession with French players? Are they cheaper?

    Usually they are yes. Lots of players in the Championship get paid more than the players in League 1 in France. The top 5 or clubs there aside.

    Trust me I'm far from Tan's biggest fan; but "put your hand in your pocket". https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/44731272

    Things were advanced for both Sala and Tameze. If there's something to be critical of the club about it's for not getting these deals over the line; not a lack of funding. The club commited to presumably £25m plus on these 2 players (I don't know the fees), plus substantial salaries.

    When there's talk of £50m bids for Callum Wilson it shows the state of the market we are in. We have to look outside; but that clearly adds its own problems.

    Is the Sala deal dead in the water then?

    No idea. Longer it goes with no news; you'd guess it's struggling a tad!!

    So maybe Tan is trying to splash the cash but players would rather go elsewhere?

    I think Tan likes Warnock and what he's managed to achieve with the money spent. I think he's more than willing to open up his chequebook but the deals just aren't getting done for some reason.

    I wish the club would be less professional. Have ten negotiations on the go and just click "delay" like in Football Manager until we've heard back from all ten. Sorted.

    Focusing on one or two players in each target position is pushing us back a few days whenever the deal falls through. We really could have done with one or two players in by now considering Saturday's game!

    No bueno.

    :nope:
