    I’m pretty certain that there is so form of contact between a club & a potential transfer target before a hell of a lot of deals are done.
    I don’t think that contact would be between Bobby/Whelan/A.N. Other from Latics & McGeady directly but through his agent – a lot of players are represented by the same agents & a lot of clubs approach the agents & ask who they have that may be interested in joining em. He says yep, McGeady would be some prelims are discussed & then agent goes to player who says he’d talk to us. Bid goes in, is accepted & possibly player hears from his agent that another club are interested & have indicated they would pay at least £10k a week more so McGeady says he’s no longer interested in talking to Latics.
    Just a theory but no rules have been broken & I know that happens (a mate of mine deals with agents at a top flight football club)

    That said, all the goss goin on at the moment about Latics & McGeady could be b0ll0x

    I’d say that’s likely to be a pretty realistic account Tyldesley.[/quote]

    It must be right then. Hail to the font of all knowledge. :)[/quote]
    Really rattled you when I disagreed with you the other day didn’t it?

    Don’t worry and don’t take it to heart. I still have feelings for you.

    Tyldesley – yes it goes on, but it’s still illegal. It’e even illegal in the Wigan Amateur League.

    Mind you, riding your bike with no lights is illegal too, but no-one’s arsed.

    There’s nowt in the rules against the scenario I described. It’s the club’s meeting/talking with the player involved that isn’t allowed. All my example was was a general discussion

    And I’m @r$ed about people riding bikes without lights on. I nearly ploughed into some bell end the other day doing that – no lights & wearing a black top & black keks[/quote]
    Was he in the Ashton area and flogging his recently published book?

    Or was it this guy? He’s a menace – I believe he’s already been in an accident recently.

    Couldn’t have been him Garswood. He’s currently riding up a mountain with Sam Tomkins.

    Here we go again, nag,nag,nag… but you do come across as a self opinionated, arrogant, pompous buffoon, in a slightly effeminate way. Let’s just call it a draw eh?

    Most of those are accurate. Not sure about the effeminate bit though. How can I be effeminate when clearly, I’m a woman?

    You can pretend you’ve won if you want to.

    I heard his agent said to McGeady,

    “Do you want to play for a shitte side in the freezing cold with nothing to do at night ?”

    McGeady replied “Na , I’ll stay Spartak Moscow”

    Actually, you’re right. I read it back and I was referring to something slightly different.

    It’s funny what goes on on Transfer Deadline day.

    I saw my dad at half 12 today. As I started to tell him McGeady had apparently turned us down, he started to tell me that according to one of the newspapers, he had been at the club, discussing terms with RM last night!

    Where do you go from there?

    If he doesn’t want to come, fair enough. If he DOES want to come, we will welcome him with open arms.

    What we DO need is every player pulling in the same direction. What we don’t need is someone coming and going through the motions, and maybe regretting coming and wishing they had gone elsewhere.

    The only winner on deadline day are the agents. I believe they get around 25% of the transfer fee. Therefore, if an agent brokers a transfer for £10 million for their player, they would pocket around £2.5 million!

    Not a bad days work really, that, is it?

    No wonder the agents are apparently battling like mad with each other. Dog eat dog, and all that. :huh:

    Personally, I thought McGeady would come, due to him knowing Caldwell and Maloney from Celtic, and having an opportunity to play in the Premiership. (Best league in the world, don’t you know)

    That said, I think that any player looking at us as a possible option may see where we are in the table, our form..or rather our results throughout the season, and think we are something of a gamble to come to. I’m a Wigan fan, obviously, but even I would be unsure about the move, if I was playing for a decent foreign side or top of the table-ish Championship side. I would be thinking “Where will that club be in 6 months?” It’s a hurdle.

    I’m not interested in winning, that’s why I offered you the draw, an olive branch so to speak. I know I said you come across self opinionated, arrogant, pompous buffoon, but in a nice way. Similar to Nigel Bruce’s portrayal of Dr. Watson opposite Basil Rathbone. Basically a good man who means well.
    So come on, what do you say?
