Thread: Ali Al Hamidi

  1. #1

    Ali Al Hamidi

    that lots of people are talking about on social media as a potential signing from Wimbledon in January

    lots of good reports on him but would it be a step up from what we have at the minute ?

    Some say Keiffer Moore has already signed

    Going to be an interesting window for us me thinks !

    He's scored 4 goals in 14 games. In League 2. Hardly inspiring. At least we know that Kieffer works his socks off and is effective at this level.

    Works his socks off?
    I'll never forgive him for spitting his dummy out before he eventually went to Bournemouth, strolling around like a spoilt toddler with a face like a slapped arris. I'll support him 100% if he comes mind!

    Don’t say that , otherwise the board will be in meltdown, you must know transfers are done last minute and not weeks / months in advance

    He may be arriving in January, but as of 5 November 2023 the transfer is not 'done'.

    He wanted a move to the PL at the end of his less-than-illustrious career. I have no problem with that or how he behaved. Before that, he had ran himself ragged for us every week.

    I accept that you continue to confuse yourself every time you get onto this subject.

    The may well have been discussions between the club and Moore (or more likely his agent) and there may even be an agreement in principle - but no deal is done. It has to be signed and registered. That cannot happen now - and until it is everything can change, a different club could come in and gazump, the player could have a change of mind. Nothing is done.

    Youíre right but I think the Athletic did an article on transfers and most are months in the making.

    There must be a reason he turned down Millwall at the last minute, too, and I believe thatís because he wants to sign for us.

    Most are done weeks in advance before they are released to the press especially in the close season that’s how the PR machine works.

    A transfer is not done until pen is put to paper. As we are under an embargo, that can't happen until January. And anything can happen until then. If most transfers are done weeks in advance, how come there's so much action on deadline day? If the KM signing is a "done deal" can we expect him to sign on January 1st?

    You were saying the ones done on transfer deadline day were all sorted weeks and months prior, which was nonsense. Kept quiet for the drama, you said. Goodness knows why you want to resurrect this again.

    I sort of know what your saying and perhaps the Turkish midfielder doing the rumour rounds last week may be an example but there's many a slip between cup and lip as they say and an unofficial word has gone nowhere in the past.

    In the first time you stated this it wasn't quite clear when cost, liability and risk transferred from the selling club to the buying club. Is it when the deal is done or when it is dramatically announced a month or so later?

    No, they are like a house purchase, people consider it and negotiate, they agree to buy in principle and take things further, then right at the end they exchange and complete, I think the club have been in negotiation, but we could find a better house and some other buyer might steal ours. As everyone else has said it's not done until it's done.

    I think we will get Keiffer though!

    Kind of sounds like you will forgive him if he comes back.
