In lower leagues you only get an appearance fee at some clubs.

Any examples? Maybe in the conference.

Can you afford to have him taking up a squad place even on a pay-as-you-play deal? If Rondon loses form or gets injured it’d be nice to have a back up striker who’s not injured for 2/3s of a season.

Carroll injured in the stands is still a better back up option than Joselu on the bench.

I’d be surprised if Joselu is here in September.

Pay as you play deals were very common in Germany about two decades ago, but even then players had a basic wage for their own security. That's about as far as my knowledge of it goes :lol:

Most contracts today by its very definition are pay as you play with bonuses for appearance, clean sheets, assists, goals, cup achievements, league position etc. I would be surprised if there was even one contract in the premier league that was base wage only without any other stipulations. Only thing is that the basic wage is usually so high these days that people don't think of it as a pay as you play contract.

This time last year I thought he'd played his last game for us. Not making that mistake again.

I'd only have Andy Carroll back at NUFC on a 'pay as you play' (has any player ever been on a deal like that?) deal. He's injured again.

Would not mind given him a real contract, if free it is just a small gamble anyway. Would love for him to get his career back on track, especially with us. I am still sad, when remembering how he was forced out of the club, even though the deal ended up being great for us Mike Ashley.

Wouldn’t even have him back on a free. He’s more immobile than Mitrovic man!

Sisto would be a great signing this summer.

Being Danish i have watched Sisto a lot. Never really managed fulfil his potential...but he is still young.

He can play absolutely horrific and be so annoying to watch...and still create 1-3 good chances.

But he needs to step up (a lot) and im not sure he is suited for PL. Needs to play every weekend and i cant see it happen here.

Rafa should take a look at Robert Skov (winger) from FCK. 23 goals and 6 assist this season. 8 goals from free kick (highest in Europe, I think)

The mackems would love us to sign Sisto as it rhymes with Bisto. They would spontaneously combust with anticipation of getting on the grooming site to make that little joke

Convinced I posted during last season that I thought Rafa would be after him last summer, but alas can't find any Nostradamus like predictions.

He also plays in a 3-4-3 system at Atalanta, supported by two withdrawn forwards, very similar to the role Rondon currently plays for us.
Before that why didn't the Wigan fans just walk the the Stewart's, the Stewart's only went up to the touchline, their was a big gap between the end of the Stewart's and the stand they could have walked through.
God man replacement's don't have to 100% of best to 100% of a replacement.
The are both white, both intellects, both middle class, both the typical 'people who would have thought could never do such a thing ', all traits of a Psychopath.

Rafa seems to love these type of focal point strikers like Sebastian Haller and Zapata.

Did he have Zapata at Napoli?
