    Falkirk reject Arfield bid

    http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport1/hi/foot...rk/8182313.stm

    Falkirk have rejected a 100,000 offer from Scottish Premier League rivals Hamilton Academical for midfielder Scott Arfield.

    BBC Scotland has learned that the bid falls short of Falkirk's valuation of the 20-year-old player.
    Not surprised it was rejected, but if Hamilton are in for one of Falkirk's star players they must be needing the cash

    Don't see why someone making a bid means the receiving club must need the cash.

    That's brilliant. It's taken the BBC 'til now to realise that a rejected offer means the bid falls short of the player's current club's valuation.

    P.S. - Signing Arfield - PRO - If he has a good season, we sell him on for a large profit. CON - If we're going to spend money, I'd rather it was done on a centre-half.

    Did Hamilton really believe that Falkirk would sell Arfield for 100K?



    Seems slightly desperate. They have cash to spend but have a team that as it stands are clear favourites to go down IMO.

    No, that was just for starters.

    Let the bidding begin.

    It's hardly surprising that Hamilton are splashing the cash, considering if they don't they must be stick ons for relegation.

    Wouldn't mind seeing Arfield at ER, though it will just be more fuel for the 'Falkirk players aint good enough for Hibs' brigade.

    Even if the bid was accepted why would Arfield want to join them?

    Sounds to me like a bit of a PR stunt, will give Falkirk a fright though thats all he's perceived to be worth by other clubs, i'm sure they'll have budgeted for getting much higher opening offer than that.

    That is an insulting bid for Arfield to be honest, fairly sure he is on quite a long contract too.

    I thought that as soon as Falkirk went out of europe they might have needed to sell players to balance the books and pay for the new stand. Seems like the stand has been paid for in full by a supporter and also new players wages are being funded out of directors pockets. Maybe they don't need to sell after all.

    Very strange.

    Rumour has it that Hamilton are next on the list for HMRC after they have finished spitting out Hearts.

    Without the sales to England they could be in adminsitration now.

    This came from the poster on kickback who told of the action against Hearts.

    Arfield is quite good isn't he? Why aren't Hibs going for him?

    You are right why would Arfield take a step down. If this bid suggests Falkirk are struggling financially then we should be banging down their door for Barr and Arfield. Both young, will only get better and we will make some cash on them. Wouldnt imagine Bairns will sell both at the same time.

    I'm pretty sure one of Yogi's last tasks at Falkirk was signing up Arfield and Scobbie on 5 year deal...

    A very insulting bid from Billy Reid & Co....

    I'd say around the 500k - 800k mark at most.

    The transfer window reminds me of bidding on eBay, there's abolutely no point in bidding too early as you just invite someone else to outbid you.

    If Falkirk want to sell Arfield there are plenty of other clubs with deeper pockets and there's still another 28 days to go...

    Sounds like a PR stunt by the Accies to me.

    He's almost as good as Driver (4m rated ) if not better....and he's far more consistent from the reports I've read....i'd say between 800K and 1m

    Sorry I must be really thick-why does getting a bid for one of your players suggest you are struggling financially?

    I guess the thinking is why would you make such a ridiculously low bid unless you thought that the other club was a little desperate financially.

    Don't understand why Hamilton have done it to be honest as that figure is never enough for Falkirk to consider selling never mind being a step down, however, its like us bidding for Naysmith. We offered money (never enough) for a player we were never going to get. Is it meant to send a message to the fans who knows.

    Either way he won't move to Hamilton and sadly he won't be with us either.

    Was our offer not close to being accepted? Sure we outbid the Hun initially, IIRC.
