Birmingham have had a 3 million rising 5.5million (on the never ever) bid rejected.

I don't know whether the club are holding out for more money or if they want Mcfadden to stay.

Deadline day Deal coming on here? Mcleish is just trying to get Faddy for as cheap as Possible and up his bid 500k a time.

Rangers should just swoop in with 5mil

Rangers are skint though. They'd offer 500K upfront and £4.5million over 20 years.

I think Moyes is over-pricing him because he knows how much McLeish rates him.

I think you'll find we only pay 3m for Gosling if he does make it, it'll be based on appearances and probably international caps or something. We're only paying something like 1m up front. It's like with Steve Simonsen, we only paid somewhere in the region of 500k up front and the rest was based on him winning player of the year etc, we never ended up paying anything like the amount that was quoted.

Has Jimmy Mac performed consistently enough to be labeled proven. He's scored some important goals but proven - depends what he's proved himself as? Proven Prem goal-scorer - not chance.

It killed two birds with one stone, allowed Everton to pay less tax and kept Tranmere afloat. TRFC still owe Peter Johnson best part of 5million. His career was ultimately null and void when the club wouldn't play him because it would activate a further payment.

McLeish lands £5.5m McFadden


Thursday January 17, 2008
The Guardian

Birmingham City's manager, Alex McLeish, has finally agreed a £5.5m fee with Everton for the Scotland forward James McFadden, who is expected at St Andrew's today to discuss personal terms.

McLeish, who was impressed with McFadden during his time as Scotland's manager, is convinced the 24-year-old former Motherwell man can help save City's season and had previously unsuccessfully offered £2.5m and £3m.

£5.5m is not a bad price as long as can use the money to bring in a replacement or at least someone on loan and use the money in the summer to sign Manny

I stand corrected - if you are indeed correct! From what I understood (my dad worked for a company who wanted to sponsor Tranmere or something so had access to the accounts) Everton paid very little up front for Simonsen and the rest was all based on appearances, bonuses etc - and as he hardly played for us I assumed that we paid very little of the reported fee. If I was misinformed then I apologise! Is it definite that we paid nearly full whack for Simonsen? If so I can bring that up next time my dad brings up Simonsen during one of his arguments!

No... noooooo..... 6mil is a steal! In fact, they should pay a lot more for such a quality player. We really really don't want to sell, and it would break our hearts to sell him for such a low figure...

I agree he wasn't great but we paid buttons for him when he was a kid playing in scotland so it was always a bit of a gamble.
If it's 5.5 or 6mill then yeah, that would be a good deal but lets not forget this bit of play which could help us write a bit of history:

Cheers Jimmy!

If McFadden goes for the figures then we are definitely winners... not THE winners, but winners nonetheless because, regardless of what he does for any other club, he has had lots and lots of time to live up to his potential and simply hasn't done so. So if we make anywhere near £5million profit on him then yes, we bloody well won and finally made some money on a player that hasn't worked out here.

5-6 Million is gd business....but i am sad to see him go....He brought us some additional flairs when we needed it...i can still recall how excited i was when we got him few years back...at that point of time he was the most gifted player our team had (that shows we are progressing!!)...in truth, i rather feel he was not given the opportunity to establish himself rather than to say he failed to establish....Player need plenty of confidence to perform and score....Confidence comes from experience,experience comes from mistakes,mistakes comes from trials,trials are minutes on the pitch....Good luck to Faddy, he will do well if given more chances...who know he can be a next bright star!! Good luck and good business!!

Good luck to the lad (his stats with us was not great but hope it goes well for him unless playing against us).

Good bit of business I think as long as we get to bring in a replacement which i would be surprised if we do to be honest.

Wish him all the best. Really don't see Birmingham getting close to any success ever but hopefully he'll get a decent career out of it.

Gave me one of the highlights of watching Everton (in the modern era) when he scored against Charlton last year. Was sat in the main stand with Josh after Bent scored absolutely gutted, feeling like we'd thrown away the season. People were leaving and then Bang!! Complete elation.

Good luck Faddy.
