Undisclosed Fee

As we're unlikely to see terraces again at football, this is the virtual equivalent where you can chat to your hearts content about all football matters and, obviously, Arsenal in particular. This forum encourages all Gooners to visit and contribute so please keep it respectful, clean and topical.

Undisclosed Fee

Postby Allgunsblazin » Thu Jan 18, 2018 7:34 am

I would like to keep this thread on how clubs conduct their transfers and why Arsenal always use the term
"Undisclosed Fee" as with the most recent case of Theo Walcott...
Why do they hide behind this non transparent phrase, perhaps a few of our sages can shed some light on this?

Mate, all the transfer fees you read about in the papers and after deals are done are bollocks anyway so saying ‘undisclosed’ is no different.

The papers beef them up including all add on’s, bonuses etc to make them appear more sensational. A quick look at Football Leaks will show you that.

Haven't we always been "undisclosed fee" since George got his fingers burnt?

Think you're confusing that with "undisclosed brown envelope" :wink:
