I always wondered, what are they things from Mickey mouse comics? Dugs? With stubble? And human ears?

(Also, why does Goofy have a pet dog?)

They look a bit like Pete ................... you are right about goofy too and I think people miss the point when they ask what sort of animal he is when the real question is how come all and sundry animals from mice to ducks walk about and talk with human intelligence but Pluto wears a collar barks and runs on all fours

Most people think he is a dog, but why would he have a pet dog?

 

He is an Aberdeen Angus

 

Good triva question

Google to the rescue!

 

'Is Goofy a human, or a dog? I once met Bill Farmer, who does the voice of Goofy, and he gave me the definitive answer: "Pluto is definitely a dog. Goofy is sort of the missing link between dog and man."'

I've always thought so, and according to Wikipedia in his first appearance he was called Dippy Dawg, the name later changed to Goofy.

From being at Hearts 2 years ago to joining the biggest club in London who could be in CL next season it's a decent move - you reckon he's above this???

Have heard this or similar before. Why would we even think this was a good move at any time. Hickey always likely to move on from Bologna. Even if we had sold him for less initially then took a sell on clause later

Who was in charge of these matters then Levein ?

 

Absolutely shocking if it is this low by him.

hearts won’t publish the amount purely for the reason that it will drive up the price we are asked for but Andrew McKinley said a 7 figure sum. 15-20% is my guess

Somewhere between 78p and about £3m.  The only thing you can take to the bank is that absolutely nobody posting on jkb actually knows!

Yup, all guess work. Though it will come up in the accounts (though not broken down but part of player sales) but that could be at least 6 months away depending on when the money is given to Hearts.

It'll probably appear in the company accounts eventually, although if we receive other significant money from transfers in the same financial year, it might still not be clear!  I certainly wouldn't expect the club to make any announcement on it, although I guess Bologna might!

 

McKinlay is reported to have said it would be a six figure sum during a Q&A at a shareholders association meeting several months ago. I wasn't there (mainly because in the 20-odd years I've been a shareholder, I've still not quite got around to joining yet!), so I can't say exactly how the question and his answer were worded, or say anything about his tone, body language, etc.  Joe Savage is reported to have said at the recent FoH event that we would be due a percentage. Again, I wasn't there, (although I am in FoH, I just happened to have shingles at the time!), so can't say anything about the specifics, although I think I remember someone saying in the thread about the meeting that Savage had actually said something about wanting to play it down. 

 

There are a few possibilities I can see.  It could be we are due a set 6-figure sum if he's sold on by Bologna. It could be we're due a set 6-figure sum but only if he's sold for over a certain amount. It could be we're due a percentage but with a capped maximum in the 6-figure range.  It could be a percentage with no cap, and that the percentage is a pretty low one that means the amount we get is pretty much certain to be 6-figures. It could be we're due a pretty good percentage and McKinlay simply didn't think months ago that Hickey would be sold by Bologna for more than a few million, so he didn't think our cut would amount to more than a 6-figure sum.  Or it could be that we're due a pretty good percentage that's going to bring us a pretty big sum, well above what we initially got, and McKinlay just said 6 figures because he wanted to try to avoid every club and their dog knowing we had another big chunk of cash potentially coming our way on top of what we're set to make from Europe next season, the Scottish Cup run, etc.

 

We can all speculate till the cows come home about what the truth actually is!

It is a while since Arsenal were widely recognised as  the biggest club in London. 

Of course it would be a more than decent move. Just possibly not the best for him or Bologna. IMO.

Speaking as a former Arsenal ST holder in the glory Wenger years.

Whisper it- but we have CL to thank for the Hickey money.

A great summary of what we don't know.

What I am pretty sure of is that it won't be transformative. It won't make us competitive with the OF. It will contribute to us sustaining a gap from the rest which we should be able to do anyway with current resources including FOH funding.

Maybe it will be £999,999.99

According to BBC Sport just now he's going to Arsenal for up to £21m.  Less than I would have thought but a tidy profit for them and a decent sum for us.

 

The money is pouring in, putting us in a really good position for next season.

If we don’t make over a million from the sell on then someone needs a kick up the backside at the club. Brilliant news if we do have say a 10%

It will show up in the clubs accounts, unfortunately there will be a long wait for that.

No we’ve got Aaron Hickey to thank. Levein played about a 10% part in it.

This sell on clause should be enough to cover Damour's wages throughout his entire 4 year deal.  Just one of his many many shite signings.  Kudos to 'Our Craigie'.😄

Does "up to" mean it might be installments and conditional in some way? 

Under their American owners Arsenal are not the biggest of spenders these days.
