    City turned down 17 million Brighton bid for Zohore..................

    Re: City turned down 17 million Brighton bid for Zohore..................

    Wow. Regardless of market trends, that's a hell of a lot of money if true. Would be a club record for sure. Surely the biggest bid we ever received was for Gary Medel.

    I'd imagine it was no where near a 17m cash deal.

    Reading that story, it looks very much that any other manager and he'd have gone.

    He will need to keep performing if he wants a move like that.

    If he has a stinking few months he's going to have no chance.

    Almost sure Hemed was a part of an initial player + cash offer.

    Quote from his agent: " It was a real, really honorable amount that was offered. And there was also strong interest from Everton."
    Think that says it all.

    “Like what Wez said, I was also told Vincent Tan wanted to accept the bid and Neil Warnock talked Tan out of it.
    Tan must love Warnock and sees that if Warnock succeeds then the prize is way way bigger “

    He really has got a chip on his shoulder. Total numbskull.

    By way of background to the company who act as KH`s agents.

    Paramount Sports Management Limited were set up in 2006 by Darryl Powell (ex Derby County midfielder) as is Derbyshire based. He is the sole director of the company.

    It employs 4 people , two of whom have a CCFC link. They are Paul Williams (the "flying postman" and Deon Burton. The other employees are the Copenhagen based Freebody Appiah (great name!) who acts as an agent in Denmark and Sweden and a lady called Sara Gration who appears to be a financial bookkeeper (rather than a regulated Independent Financial Adviser who might sell her services to footballer clients as I expected her to be).

    Paramount Sports Management Limited does not appear to be very successful financially , at least up until the latest financial accounts covering the year to 31 January 2016. In that year , it made a loss of nearly 75k and at the end of the year it was left with net assets of only 7k ( debtors of 104k, cash of 68k less liabilities of 165k). Of the debtor asset of 104k , nearly 71k was owed by Darryl Powell himself as his directors loan account was overdrawn.

    Based on the above financial position, I would imagine that the agency were very keen to talk up and complete a sale of Kenneth Zohore to anybody.

    Darryl Powell also has a directorship in a second company , Paramount (2012) Limited. That had net assets of about 204k as at 31 January 2016.

    For those interested , I hope this is a decent bit of background information. For those not , at least I will have helped start off your afternoon siesta

    I wasn't saying bullshit from the club/agent, guess where I was saying I could smell the bullshit from.

    I maybe wrong but wasn't it JOHN Williams who played for us and was the ex-postie?

    You are not wrong at all - it was my typing error. The employee is the self same John Williams (why I typed Paul can only be down to senility on my part)

    I am pretty sure we have had a few Georges playing for us , but I can`t remember a Ringo over the last 55 years.

    Paul (TOBW) will undoubtedly be able to put me right on this

    Mark "Ringo" Ring used to think he was good enough at football to play for Brazil if that counts.

    True.

    Never the shy retiring type.

    Where are you on the CCFC Georges research Paul?

    Too late , have done it myself now , and yes I did cheat and look it up on Wikipedia.

    They list a total of 7 players called George who have played for Cardiff City FC , none of whom played later than 1939.

    Something was nagging (what`s left of) my brain that we had a more recent George than that , then it struck me (there is normally a queue for that!). George Johnson who played for us as an attacking midfielder/ striker for us in the mid-1960s. I am sure he played for us in a few European Cup Winners Cup games for us as well as League games.

    Have Wikipedia missed out any other Georges that anyone on here can remember?

    This is a test for TOBW and Enoch Mort I think.

    See. The knowledgeable folk of this board come to the fore again.

    We now have Georges Johnson , Smith, Andrews and Wood to add at the very least. Saw all of them play for the club in my time. How the hell I forgot about George Wood (he with no hair but we don't care!) is beyond me.

    Scouts coming to see Zohore in recent weeks probably go away more impressed with Mendez-Laing.

    I'm sure there is a Scottish winger (George), in the mix somewhere, but the gray matter has dried up.

    Re: City turned down 17 million Brighton bid for Zohore..................

    Nobody else see's this as more than a coincidence that the story has suddenly come out right after a bad game?

    Pure nonsense until either club has come out and admitted it. A desperate looking agent trying to keep the hype train going for a potentially big payday in the future.

    I actually would have thought most of the money would have been upfront due to the bid being so late.... that said we will never know

    It was Georgie Johnston not Johnson, married a girl from Heol Poyston (nee Snowball). The night of the Anfield, Jordan hand ball game, a mate of mine was playing skittles against his side at the Home Guard, game was on the box, needless to say Georgie Johnston was not very popular that night.😂😂😂

    Yes a joint 1000 fee for both of them. Andrews scored well but left after only a year and Gary Bell became a legend, eventually.
