Don't want to cause too much optimism around the place in case it ends in disappointment but this TruBlue has made an interesting point in the Loic Remy thread for me though. Thought I'd make a new thread out of it because it warrants it's own discussion.
Maybe the board belive we have a genuine chance of getting into top 4 and are going for it.
Could this be the case? Obviously I know you're going to throw the Leeds United argument at me but say we do sell Yakubu and add a few million from backers to stump up the money for this Remy, that's not that much of a gamble is it? We're already up to our tits in debt, it's not as if a few million are going to send the club into meltdown if it all goes wrong.
We all know we have an excellent squad now and an excellent chance at the top 4, and obviously CL football would be a massive step towards a new dawn at Goodison, it would be worth the odd extra million here and there for one or two more players.
I think Yakubu will be sold personally, probably for about an initial £8 million rising to about £11million. If the board take the gamble and add the odd extra few million to secure the services of a very promising young player or hot continental talent, would that be worth the risk?
