Player Profit/Loss


Recommended Posts

Not sure if this one has been done before, but I was thinking about the "great" bit of business at selling Parker for £500k more than we signed him and got to thinking about

 

1) the times we've made a good profit on a player?

 

and on the other side of the fence,

 

2) players we've lost our bollocks on?

 

Also,

 

3) players that we really got our moneys worth out of?

 

 

I've just started with a few here, feel free to add/take away

 

1) Profit

Scott Parker : £500k

Woodgate : £4.4m

Andy Cole : £5m roughly

Jermaine Jenas : £4m

Gillespie : £1.5m

Hamann : £3.5m

Batty : £650k

 

 

2) Loss

Viana : £3m ???

Marcelino : £5m

Luque : £10m - ish

Cort : £5m

Maric : £1.5m

Ferguson : £4m

Boumsong : £5m

 

 

3) Good Value

Given : free

Speed : £5m loss

Ferdinand : £0 profit/loss

Ginola : £500k loss

Shearer : £15m loss :D

Bellamy : £2.5m loss

Robert : £10.5m loss

Rob Lee : undisclosed

Kevin Gallacher : £700k loss

 

 

 

I left out a good few for the point of discussion. Was Bramble a £4.5m waste? We got a fair few years out of him and he fulfilled his contract. Was Robert a waste of £10.5m?

 

Also, I'm not including every single player we've made a profit/loss on, more the ones who were highest profile. I'm only going back as far as Keegans years, feel free to add futher back if possible.

 

Before anyone mentions it, I haven't put Owen in either ;)

Bramble is a waste of space.

 

You've still to take me up on that bet though :D

What bet?

Never saw it. £10 for the England thing and you're on btw. MOTM is too subjective though. Who decides that?

 

One agreed newspaper?

 

Sunday Times? Mail? Sport? loerrach-zeitung? ;)

Sunday Times is fine by me. Guarenteed he will be MOTM and won't play for England though so no money will change hands :D
