Liverpool aren't daft & realise that hence the deal taking time if it happens & you only get the resale value if the lad continues to progress & do well which is far from a certainty.
That was pretty much part of my point.

Ryan Christie story just not going away...

Unfortunately it will end up going away just like all the others. I'll predict tht we won't sign anyone before the window closes.

Its worrying either way.
option 1 - Garlick is acting as a custodian of the club and is concerned that a rebate will need to be paid on the TV rights so needs to keep the money safe for when that happens.

Option 2- The potential new owners have advised they dont want anyone signing due to the risk of relegation and not enough time to move debt on should we get relegated, in which case worrying at the type of people who want buy us, as surely if they wanted to protect their investment they would buy weeks ago and inject money.

Option 3 - we are skint and the only money available is what we make in the transfer market, so £2M from Gibbson of which £1M went on Stephens



Either way doesn't look good, as i dint Garlick budging on any of it.

Don't worry if we don't sign anyone today there's another opportunity to be disappointed again when the EFL window closes on the 16th.

Chance to vote "hit or miss" on the BBC feed on Burnley's transfer window.

https://www.bbc.com/sport/live/football/54364762

At the time of looking, it has 201 upvotes and 3,165 downvotes :lol:

Edit - That poll has been followed by a quote from non other than Tony Scholes! :)

You wouldn't have thought the window had even opened at Burnley. We've done no more than bring in a third choice goalkeeper and central midfielder Dale Stephens who was signed from Brighton for around a million.

That doesn't even cover the players who have left and is despite the manager's constant pleas for new players.

Hope and expectation is at two different levels. We hopes, at minimum, to see a central defender, a young right-back and a wide player, preferably to play on the right

That, I would think, is the bare minimum for most supporters. The expectation is that nothing is going to happen and that seems to be Sean Dyche's view right now.

I’d honestly love to know how transfer deadline day works at the club.

Was Garlick up all night working on a deal? Or in bed by 10pm snoozing soundly?

Do agents approach Dyche first and ask him if he’d take a player or Rigg/Garlick?

Are the Board on standby to sanction moves if players become available? Ditto a lawyer to sort out the contracts? And a medical team?

Is there a WhatsApp Group they’re all messaging on, and, if there were, would there be any messages on it? :lol:

Is Dyche taking training today or actively involved in trying to get signings in? Or is it pre-determined and agreed we won’t be signing anyone so he’s switched his phone off?

Anyone got any insight whatsoever...?

He would probably use some foreign painters, it’s a shame that Dyche refuses to use foreign players (unless they have been in the UK for a number of years)

Is today also the last day that we can sign players from the Scottish League or is that the 16th October?

Most of our Directors are not of the WhatsApp generation to put it politely.
Tbf, you’d expect at least Sean, Rigg and Garlick to have a mobile phone...

Mike Rigg created group “BFC summer transfer window 2020”

Mike Rigg added “Mike Garlick”

Mike Rigg added “Sean Dyche”

Hi everyone, thought I’d set this group up to discuss our summer transfer business.

“Mike Garlick” left the group

Andy Jones on The Athletic says not to expect much but we are still in the market and it will depend on a suitable opportunity arising.
Chris has papers to get out and won't be on twitter all day.

At this stage I would settle for a last ditch Michael Kightly style loan of a right winger. Actually we could just get 'Kites' back?

Who remembers the palpable lift that signing gave us? - those were the days, when we were skint but had hope.

I’d honestly love to know how transfer deadline day works at the club.

Was Garlick up all night working on a deal? Or in bed by 10pm snoozing soundly?

Do agents approach Dyche first and ask him if he’d take a player or Rigg/Garlick?

Are the Board on standby to sanction moves if players become available? Ditto a lawyer to sort out the contracts? And a medical team?

Is there a WhatsApp Group they’re all messaging on, and, if there were, would there be any messages on it? :lol:

Is Dyche taking training today or actively involved in trying to get signings in? Or is it pre-determined and agreed we won’t be signing anyone so he’s switched his phone off?

Anyone got any insight whatsoever...?
Magic Mike locks the door, closes the curtains and switches his phone off waiting for the day to pass.
