He wanted to be beside his family, there have been plenty players who came up but did not move their families. They were happy enough to make a right few bob then go back south after one or two seasons. 

Since he would have been paying for his digs up north as well as travel cost up and down the A9 plus his family home, Ross C really must have been paying him mega money  :byebye

How do you know he was paying for a place to stay up there? How do you know he was paying for his travel costs? He may not

Ross County do pay their players over the odds. End of story. I'm surprised that this is even up for debate. It's been well documented by their own fans on P&B.

 

 

 

 

 

 

You are correct but it doesn't end there. Accommodation, travel etc.

Have you dealt directly with football clubs and players? It's a while since I have but the contracts and other arrangements between club and players have evolved. Privacy requirements mean that I can't give examples. However, if you'd prefer to think differently then fine.

Yes, you could be right since maybe he was sharing a bin with Topcat    :lol

Documented?  On P&B?

Really?

Gossiped and speculated on?  Undoubtedly.  You've fallen into the habit that you criticise other posters for-assuming what they saw on a football chat is Gospel.

With the whirlwind of speculation surrounding all aspects of the club's current failings. Is our manager about to walk?
the speculation has popped up in more than one place now.


Oh dear LPM. It really is silly season. For what it’s worth, I hear that good news is about to break. Watch this space. Patience my Lord, patience

And if, as is rumoured we havent been able to offer May what he wants? The assurances Goody was given look as solid as the ones Oran got on commuting..!

That's a big leap: not being prepared/able to meet May's shifting demands is not the same as breaking assurances to Goodwin. Besides, it looks like he was going to the Fakes until Dundee came in and gazumped them. I emphatically disagree that we should be getting suckered into a bidding war for a player who might not even turn out to be that good any more.

Its not about May's demands, bidding wars, or being gazumped! Or indeed about any one target.

its about backing up the assurances that Goody sought, and we assume got? That he would have the budget required to bring in the standard of player necessary to maintain our premiership status.

its purely about our board backing theur manager as they said they would. Evidence seems to indicate to the contrary!

But that's exactly what it's about, because that's what we're talking about, and that's what's happened.

Is a left back who can cover centre back, play right or left wing and be thrown up front in case of emergencies.  That would be ideal.

Goody was assured we would better offers equating to the best the Fakes had ever made a player in their history ??? Away and lie down out the heat it's going for you big time. You are a grade 1 Walter Mitty like shit stirrer !

Not for me bud. Its not about missing one target who wants to play hard ball. Its about the failing to bring in a sufficient number of players at the required standard to be competitive in keeping us up!

There always has, and always will be players who just use a team to build interest elsewhere.
