    I read that the total was close to being agreed around 17m. With the exact payment structure still being worked out. But this was before a gladbach insider said that everything was sorted pending a medical check next week.

    I can't say I have too much cause to be anxious about it given that review & how well Eberl's last Hannover purchase worked out...guess I'm just letting how underwhelmed by him I was 3 or 4 years ago taint my impression of him now...basically the same thing I call Evilo out for doing with Aubamayeng.

    But 17m is big money for BMG to spend, and with Hecking around I will always worry that Eberl is trying to accommodate him too much with his larger purchases...so I'm always anxious any time BMG buys anyone older than 20 without first loaning them in :laugh:

    Oh **** off with your isn't a lot of money bull****. If it blows up 17m is a significant blow to the warchest Eberl has squirreled away. Even if he's able to compensate for it with shrewd moves & kids.

    Nevermind that they player wants Gladbach and has already agreed to terms with them, so an english club would have to swoop in ASAP...and we all know that's not how english clubs roll.

    17m is alot of money, but by today's standard he will be worth it. Very good player who knows where the goal stand and the will to score.
    For us it is crap. After our first season in the league we are losing our best three players. And after the disaster with those Brazilian who's name me always escapes, because he NEVER plays, I'm not confident Heldt will spent the money well. Oh yeah, we also have this Dane, who also NEVER plays.

    It's a lot of money for Gladbach to spend, but it isn't a lot of money for Hannover to receive. They'll probably buy 3 or 4 guys and no-one knows if they'll be useful at the BuLi level.

    That's how teams fade away in Germany..sell your best guys for a sum that sounds tidy but really isn't all that in the world football context..because it's not like that money will buy you proven performers. You'll have to get some guy from a French mid-table club, a bench player from a good club, some Brazilian or African offered up by crafty but less than trustworthy agents.

    That's also the reality of football for 99% of clubs. You have to do well with the money you get when your players want to leave for bigger teams. You wouldn't want the changes it would take to alter this reality that the rest of us have to live with...

    For what it's worth, I think Heldt has done a better job for you than he did Schalke. And we've been seeing more & more of your academy kids popping up in youth NT circles. So I'm optimistic with you guys moving

    Right, Heldt might not be the issue, but Nosferatu is sitting on his money. Btw. Union are acquiring two of our players, Hübner and Schmiedebach.

    Dortmund signed some third keeper from Bremen's reserves. Lets hope he never sees the field.

    He's very versatile. Can play central defense or the left side or defensive midfield. And he's not just an iron footed defender, he can make plays. One of the very few bright spots last year.

    Nice to hear. Exactly what Dortmund needs. Atleast Mainz got good transfer fee.

    He's not very tall either, but is a nice leaper.

    They did. And they will buy a cheap guy somewhere again, sell him at a profit all the while going nowhere. But that's the game for a middling club. I accept that, but I'm not so happy about it.

    Our CB options are looking pretty good for next season. Toprak and Akanji should be one of the best pairings in the league. Having Diallo as a versatile first back up option in a number of positions should help. I wouldn’t even be surprised if Diallo ends up playing a lot of LB, given Schmelzer and Guerreiro aren’t the best options there. And hopefully Favre is willing to develop Zagadou. I liked the job Bosz did with him. Stooges acted like he didn’t even exist.

    Castro and Divavi to Stuttgart.
    Füllkrug stays at Hannover 96, Gladbach now is after Plea from Nice instead.

    Apparently Marrakesh police are now saying that it was Harit himself driving the car.

    And probably the celeb will get a little slap on the wrist for it. We saw it before.

    Schalke will most likely respond in some way too.

    Harit shouldn't ever play in the Bundesliga again, manslaughter is just inexcusable and no team with any integrity can tolerate a player like that.

    Considering the silence surrounding Marcos Alonso - and assuming Harit was the one driving - I doubt the collective response from football clubs will be adequate - whether Schalke terminates his contract or not.
