Parramatta Eels Supporters Website
Well that's been decided, Bup is one of the smartest people on this site (along with me and God) and if he reckons it will work, it will work.
I have spoken to the financial manager of the Nursing home and Mushy has authorised us to go to $675k for 3 years with performance clauses based on KPI's. We would expect that the club would come forward with $670k of this, which makes him a very cheap well priced buy...don't forget we get two positions for one with this little doggy.
Mushy is even prepared to give up drinking for a month which is 20 bottles of wine per week x 4 = 80 @$4 per bottle, throw another few hundred into the pile.
We have to keep Mushy busy through this period so we thought he could go to rehab with Benj and Coach, They will work on proving that they have a brain while Mushy focuses on his liver.
I guarantee Mushy will be fit to drink in a month but the jury could be out for a long time on the other two!
sounds about right $225k a yr over 3 yrs = $675k but he has to pay his own tripping fines.
PA not BA......don't worry we will teach him to trip the light fantastic and if he doesn't he has to fess up the next day to Mau'a and Matagi who will explain to him that tripping is not allowed with the eels......unless it is in one of Matagi's stage shows!.......
$800k?? Gee i'd play for $750k but I am over 50!!! Tell him he is dreamin!
I think the fact that his current Club is letting him go at his asking price, says it all.
I think you are looking at it wrongly EE.
His manager has told him to ask for 800 thinking its a starting point. The club says you better start looking somewhere else.
After this process runs its course, they will get back to what is the real price. My guess is his value is around the 500/550 mark but it being a buyer's market for halves and the fact he can be a fine hooker as well, plus field kick means he will probably get around 650k on the open market!
Walpy makes the comment above you that he would play for 750k , the real question is "who would pay it".
There is no doubt we would pay those numbers and BA by saying he's interested (not in as many words) has confirmed he would pay reasonable numbers. i.e. 550/675.
Someone else must like him......I know I do and I think he is just what we need!
