I hate the idea of buy back options, as it's another way for big clubs to control the smaller clubs. There's just loads more stockpiling of players, more loans than ever before and you can't even buy a prospect without already pencilling in his next transfer.

Agree tbf. Just another thing to encourage stockpiling youngsters at a younger age as you can't really lose out long term.
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.

The buy back option is just a first option at buying the player right?
I'll be watching the games, and I'll be talking about the teams. If it's a disaster it will be quite humorous and exactly what Mike Ashley deserves and to be honest I'll quite enjoy it. I am totally indifferent to results and the team success going forward.

Now, in certain games should the team do well, I will be happy more for the players, because I feel bad for them mostly, and I still want to see some of them do well. I will still feel comfortable giving the team credit when they do well. I just don't care about any outcome at this point and none of my money goes into anything to do with Mike Ashley's operations.

For a set price

Is that always a stipulation? That is absolutely nuts.

That's what a buy back clause is. An option to buy a player you sell back for a set price

First option only clauses exist also right?

I think Man United have one for Depay for example.

Honestly, forgot there were set price buy back clauses, but I guess if the club buying the player are happy with it and agree on a price then ultimately you can't scrap them.

Presumably the player could still say no?

Unlikely I know, but if he was happy at Tottenham he could refuse to return to Real despite the clause?

Must be exciting times for USMNT fans. Look like they should be good over the next 5 years or so

He's one of their best players and they might not have an adequate replacement lined up.
It's basically what gives us the upper hand even in times of crisis. "Cannit wait man, we're gonna batter them, hope it's 4 or 5 nil, fancy such and such for a hat trick, we're going got Europe, they're a yo-yo team" Then five minutes into the game "s***, why haven't we scored? They've had a shot! Why aren't we all over them? How come there are two teams in the game? f***, what if we don't win? f***s SAKE CLEAR IT SHOOT TACKLE HIM BOO! What if we lose, PANIC PANIC BRUCE MAN WHAT ARE YOU DOING WHY DID HE MISS THAT SHOT, IS HE A MAG?! IT'S BECAUSE BRUCE IS A MAG! f*** OFF STEWARD ARE YOU A f***ing MAG?

Think they'll get that much for him when they get relegated though?

It's all relative. It seems a mad price, but Burnley are a side dependant on their defensive strength. If they deem him vital to PL survival and are under no pressure to sell they can demand what they see fit.

Wijnaldum off then? Liverpool will need to offset the cost somehow so Klopp can still claim they're the only club not spending money in the top 6.
