    Two days after Bury were expelled from the Football League, Bournemouth registered that they had agreed to borrow around £16 million from an Australian bank called Macquarie, who have, in the past, been criticised over their ruthless pursuit of profits. The mere reference to loans, and the spectre of debt, is one that, unsurprisingly, alarms supporters.

    It seems quite sound business to me. I really hope the club though are sensible with their finances because debt worries me as a supporter much more than relegation, we don't want to do a Portsmouth.

    What happens though if the buying club defaults on their installment? Will the lender collect it from the borrower (selling club) or from the buying club?

    It's like a home loan or a car loan; with the roles reversed. The buyer borrows money and gives it to the seller upfront, and has to then pay installments to the lender. Why don't selling clubs do the same? Insist on upfront payments so that the buyers have to take loans instead.

      Unlike the pay day loan however, this is relatively safe and the interest is lower.

    The transfer fees are becoming increasingly performance and fitness based. If they are expectinf 20million pounds for player, 10 million which involves how many games he is healthy for and how many goals he scores. And he plays like shit for 3 season, they may only recieve half of it while being stuck with a 20 millon pound loan. Its stupid. Fuck no

    Fifa (the game) has a lot to answer for regarding how people think transfers work, I genuinely think some people believe Chairman rock up to another club with a suitcase full of cash and then leave with the player.

    So everybody owes everybody loads of money? So if one club couldn't pay, it would have huge knock on effects?
    At least we have a good, effective FA Fit and Proper person test that NEVER fails and clubs NEVER go bust...

    I shudder at the possibility of embarrassing myself, but from one of your biggest Aussie fans, it's pronounced MA-QUARRY like the British governor. We have quite a lot of things named after him.

  • OrangeZeb

    Where is sensible transfers??

  • Jesus Christ the Mighty Duck

    It does come as a surprise to me that clubs pay VAT on transfer fees. It is something I have considered in the past and I presumed the answer would be that it isn't paid because that would be to say a player is a product rather than a person, a notion that does not sit easy with me. Whilst it's reassuring that these multi-billion pound businesses are taxed one way or another*, I just don't agree with the principle of an individual being subject to VAT.
    * Clubs usually don't pay corporation tax because they aren't profitable businesses in the traditional sense - any extra revenue they make is expected to be reinvested by fans. Club owners typically make their money by increasing the value of the assets (players, facilities, tv rights, etc) then selling the club on.

    Can you make a video about the Valenciennes-Marseille scandal in 1993? The Marseille team had a fixture against Valenciennes a couple days before their Champions league final vs Milan, so they told two Valenciennes players to convince their teammates to go easy on them so that they can rest up for Milan. One of the Valenciennes players didn't want to be part of the fixing and leaked the story.

      Probably the interest the bank takes will be lower than the transfer market will inflate by 2021.It´s literally a win win if the interest rate isnt as exorbitant as market growth

    • Iván Fernández Ramírez
      Iván Fernández Ramírez Month ago +6

      Actually is really interesting to use it. It basically works like this: you sell a player for 20M€, you need the money right now, so the bank lends you 15M€ and they charge the club that owes you the 20M€ that amount. So you only get 15M€ out of the 20 from the transfer but you might use it to invest in something more important right now. Also, all those transfers are secured so no one is gonna lose money, you'll receive less money for your transfer but if you have the opportunity to invest in something really interesting right now, it's worth the shot.

    First: it's pronounced Mack-Quarry. Second: It's one of the biggest corporate banks in the world. They are specialists in organising private equity consortiums for acquisition and funding of large infrastructure (airports, tollroads, water works, etc.). Third: They've been operating in London since the 70s.

    Tifo can you please do a video on Famalicão. They were promoted to the Portuguese top flight for the first time last season but are already top. It would make a really interesting video.
