There was rumors of an “International striker” coming in, but I think that is just bluster.

Main is apparently also injured, so were left with Anderson or Ruth, unless they opt for putting the likes of McGinn up front until 

the injuries clear.

 

we were prepared to sell Cosgrove a few weeks ago, so you’d like to think there was a plan to replace.

 

Just a case of wait and see


Hang on... you were losing, what was it? A million a month or something? According to your owner.

 

So you were going to sell Cosgrove to free up a bit of cash flow and bring in a replacement international striker? Now Cosgrove is injures though, so you’ll just be bringing in the international striker anyway? 
 

Is that correct?

As an aside. I’ve just taken delivery of a totally fantastic monorail. Anyone fancy buying it off me? It’s red and shiny and there’s no seats. All the passengers just stand free. Only £50m.

Lol, look beyond the headlines.

The £10M loss was a projected predicted loss through till the end of the year projecting loss of revenue as a result of COVID-19.

Its partially to declare on projected losses for tax purposes.

Since then, the club has recovered £6.2M, from various sources, so the current projected loss as a result of COVID-19 is sitting at £3.8M through till the end of the year. If fans / corporate are back in before the end of the year then the losses will be even less.

 

There is an impact, every club is impacted but were far from desperate.

I.e. the plan of an ‘international striker’ as a replacement was contingent on the sale of Cosgrove for ~£2m, you’ve not gained that money and he’s still on the wage bill so it’s pretty debatable you’ll now have the cash for anywhere near that planned level of replacement.

Oh... the club has received £6.2m? So is that philanthropic cash, or is it loans with interest, or what?

Didn't realise Morelos played for Aberdeen. 

 

As worthy as they are to take the complete piss out of, it's taking away from the main question - who the **** is going to pay mega money for an angry wee man who couldn't score against the only team that put up a challenge in the league?

The supposed player could have been a free or even a loan.

I very much doubt we would have splurged out a huge chunk of cash at this time regardless if we received money for Cosgrove.

Having Main also injured may change perspective, else they go with what they have.

Hence the wait and see bit.

You state one thing then depart from it completely a few posts later. Take a journey back through you posts and you’ll see what I mean. Perhaps it’s just the way you conduct yourself and it maybe stands out more because of the Aberdeen badge.

I can believe Lille made a bid they thought was fair but that the delusional SevCo think they can hold out for so much more.

Supposedly the bid's up to 17 mil from Lille.  West Brom chasing him as well, they just got into the Prem'  I reckon Lille wont value him past 20 mill unless they really want him.  I am going to say West Brom will get him for about 25m.

I doubt it. The valuations around Morelos are all hyped up - it was sub £10mill from Lille last week so I can’t see them suddenly ramping up by several million in the space of a few days. 
 

Considering the very public “sounding out” of Morelos (ie. the story on Sat that a salary had been agreed) then with no other bids Rangers have no leverage to crank up a transfer fee.

 

Compare and contrast the transfer fees suggested for Edouard - if Morelos suddenly becomes £25mill then Edouard would be £35-40mill and that’s just not happening.

Morelos would be a very ordinary player in the EPL or even Ligue 1. You saw how he was overshadowed by a 36 y/o Defoe  at Sevco - who was considered as finished in England - and couldn't buy a goal up to the lock down. This is aside from his shocking on field temperament. 17m is hun clickbait.

Not really. Take Fornals at West Ham for example, arrived for £25.5m has been extremely average and West Ham now looking to offload. 
 

Or Joelinton at Newcastle, £40m and has scored two goals.

Morelos wasn't over shadowed by Defoe. 

 

Also, ordinary players easily go for £10-£30m in epl, regularly. 

He's a good player, not the complete player but he's good. 

 

£20m give or take is not a massive transfer fee.

Plus a big wage bill with no tickets to be sold.

 

I reckon they are a distressed seller. Why else would you sell your only fit striker and last 3? Seasons top scorer

All of this.

Villa paid £20m last year for an absolute donkey from Bournemouth. I think Sevco will get close to that figure.

How much did Celtic get for Ki, Wanyamma and Van Dyke? Think VVD was £12m maybe? 
 

Don’t see Morelos going direct from Rangers for £20m. I could well be wrong though.

In fairness they sold those players years ago, I think Wanyama was about 2012. 
 

A more accurate comparison would be Tierney who I believe cost £25m funnily enough.
