My thought is along the lines that the dildo brothers will be looking to sell their shares in WHU in the near future, and the new owner will claim the debt to BFC is owed by them, not WHU. I just don't trust them. Not an inch.
No I don't either spivs and wide boys IMO

But having a deal all stitched up with a legally enforceable bow on top means that even if they do try it on they won’t get anywhere...
Ultimately yes. But how long do you wait for your money if there's a dispute? What legal costs do you rack up enforcing your legal rights?

I am not saying we've done our money, that would be disrespectful to the DoFs and our legal team. I'm saying I don't trust the current WHU owners to cough up on time without a concocted, protracted drama.

I’d imagine any legal fees would have to be paid by WHU plus damages and compensation, if they tried this thing.
Imagine the sanctions from the FA, UEFA, Fifa etc if they refused to pay money.
Not to mention the fact every club and agent would refuse to deal with WHU going forward.
It would be suicidal. Not to mention any business reputation outside of football being ruined for Gold, Sullivan and Brady.
What you’re suggesting makes zero sense.

Lastly, have they got form for not paying transfer fees when agreed? I don’t believe that to be the case

I am not saying they won't pay. I am saying I don't trust Gold and Suilllivan. It might make zero sense to you, but I don't think I am alone in my lack of trust. Plenty of WHU fans feel the same.

I wish him all the best.

I have a problem with Gold and Sullivan but not with their fans.
They have had to suffer a lot of S**T including being dragged away from their home and all the other shenanigans those 2 shyster's have put them through so i hope they get some enjoyment from watching Said.

Legal costs would be dwarfed by the £25m at stake and they’d only be likely to be at risk if we lost.

Agree with the first bit, but theoretically I'm not sure you always recoup your legal costs unless awarded by the Court?

Anyway, as another poster has pointed out, maybe its best to see how it plays out.

The problem seems to relate to his blood and we seem confident it is minor. It is hard to see how WH can wriggle out of signing him on the basis of a broken leg or poor form or whatever unless they can make some connection to the blood issue which would need to be verified. From Phil's interview it sounds like we are going to be involved in the further medical tests so I would say it is unlikely that WH have any wriggle room here. Let's move on.

The standard rule is that costs go with the cause (ie loser pays). You’re right that they need to be awarded by the Court but one of the first lessons you learn as a barrister is to make a costs application as soon as judgment handed down. It would be very unusual for this to not be granted, unless there had been serious misbehaviour by the winning party (or they’d refused a settlement offer at or above what was found by the Court - or sometimes, rarely, where the additional costs for carrying on fighting were disproportionate compared to the Difference between the judgment and the offer). While we rightly mistrust the Dildo Brothers, if their counsel behaved like them, they would not be looked on kindly.

I've just listened again to PG's summary and agree with the above.

Fair enough. However I think Baroness Peschidildo & Co are stuck with Wet Sham for another 4(?) years. Probably read it on the interminable SB transfer thread, and something to do with the Stadium.

over a hundred brentford fc staff got an extra tenner in there pay last week as a result of his parting gift what more do you want.
When you leave a job it’s not a good look to tell everyone you will miss them and wished you weren’t going. Fact is you don’t care about those left behind as your off to earn more money and drink in better after work establishments.

I want a parting letter. So i can judge him when all the new colleagues and bosses let him down and leave him looking for work at a lesser establishment in the midlands whilst looking on at the old workplace ticking along nicely.

Antonio, Yarmolenko, Lanzini, Bowen, Felipe Anderson options for his spot at WHU I believe. No doubt he can earn the shirt but he will have to work hard.

I wonder if his so called medical problem will prevent his inclusion in the Hammers squad this weekend. :unsure:

"He was helped to settle by an Algerian chef at the training ground and Peter Gilham, who was the match-day announcer at Griffin Park for 51 years until he stepped down at the end of last season. "

Ummm, have they replaced him with a voiceover artists?

When Moyes plays 5-4-1 (against top 6, Wolves, Leeds etc) I don't think SB will start many games and (imo) will only be an impact sub after the hr mark. I think he saw enough in that comeback against Spurs to think this approach will work.

The whole Moyes/Benrahma axis in team selection will be fascinating this season!

In the shed.
Moyes didn’t particularly want Said. It becomes a question if Gold & Co want Moyes.
