    Totally agree, a lot of money was on the line, just try and keep this classy behind closed doors.
    Did you see McKays interview? Classy is already out of the window with him in full self preservation mode....

    I watched it, he came across as a sleazy prick. All parties should get together and work something out. Maybe something along the lines of Cardiff paying half the fee and stopping the blame game.

    Complains that Cardiff abandoned the player and didnít arrange the flight then goes on to say he arranged the flight through a pilot that had flown him and many of his players ďall over Europe on countless occasionsĒ.
    Yep no doubt seen as part of agents job. Abandoned the player, all we wanted to do was get him home, utter parasite he is.

    McKay Snr is an utter weasel. His sons donít sound much better.

    The authorities should be looking at the fact that heís evidently using his son as a front to continue acting as an agent. They wonít though.

    Unless there's something contractual we don't know about, Cardiff should be paying the entire original fee. He was a Cardiff player, I'm not sure why there's even any pretence of a 'dispute' about it. Well I do, of course.

    Absolutely. Whether he was a Cardiff player for 2 days or 2 years he was 100% their player.

    And Willie McKay is a ****ing ****bag.

    Whilst that's technically correct, the circumstances surrounding this transfer are fairly unique.

    It would have been nice to think that Cardiff and Nantes could write off half of the transfer each, and send a sizeable chunk to Sala's family/ support any charity efforts in future etc.

    This whole affair has the potential to cause reputational damage to the clubs if they don't "do the right thing" and they'll be desperate to avoid that.

    The agents are utter **** and are solely to blame for the public debate.

    It should be decided behind closed doors.

    Yes I know. And I was raging at the time, particularly at the DR articles. But I'm now choosing to believe that he did so out of gullibility rather than badness. McKay has clearly hoodwinked cleverer men than KT in his time.
    Who is KT and Broonys agent nowadays.

    Cardiff have said they will do the right thing with regard to the fee. I get the impression that we (Cardiff) are looking at the insurance side of things etc.

    Whilst I think the article makes some reasonable points and Cardiff probably have a few questions to answer on some of the points raised I'm not sure they're all that out of order re Sala. I honestly believe they will do the right thing.

    This "story" has a few of my least favourite groups of people's mucky paws all over it. The press are desperate for a big story and to accuse people of behaving inappropriately at a sensitive time. Cardiff wouldn't have had to say anything if they hadn't been forced to by agents pushing and I don't think they would have.

    A Petrie-esque deafening silence would have been most appropriate.

    Scott Brown has stayed with Willie McKay I think. Not sure if KT has an agent, do you need one as a youth team coach?

    Although itís such an emotive subject, I see no reason that Nantes would just right off half the transfer fee (I do agree it would be nice)

    Scott Brown doesnít have an agent any longer, negotiated his last contract at Celtic himself.

    The problem for Cardiff is that as seems likely the insurance policy will not pay out as the flight was unlicensed. What justification they have to refuse to pay Nantes I donít know. The transfer had been completed. Nantes are due to pay a sell on fee to Bordeaux. Cardiff will end up liable for the fee payment as agreed. Maybe they will chase McKay?

    The issue here is Willie McKay. Even amongst football agents he came over as a complete sleazeball.

    Almost reads like a Panorama programme. No wonder the McKays' have been on the TV shedding the crocodile tears trying to position themselves.

    Good bit of journalism there from Martin Samuel.

    Cardiff are being very grubby here. Likewise McKay of course. Feel sorry for Nantes - Cardiff fans mourning a player they never knew - they agreed a deal and there is no question they are owed £15m.

  26. #85
    Said it earlier, both sides each cover half the costs between them. Forget lawyers and paperwork, the deal had been agreed, it was a one in a lifetime thing to happen. Stop being greedy and end the saga ASAP.

    Absolutely ridiculous IF Cardiff are trying to wriggle out of paying on some kind of technicality, was the guy on that flight for a laugh like? DetroitHibs spot on that would be a dignified, sensible solution.

    I'm not for a moment taking Cardiff's side but if he hadn't signed (it's a big if) it's not a technicality. If a player on his his way to ER to sign for us lost his life would we have to pay a transfer fee?

    Even if proven he 100% indisputably hadnít signed (surely that wouldíve been established by now?) Cardiff should do the honourable thing IMO. If it was Hibs iíd be saying the same thing FWIW. Whole thing stinks.

    Yes you may be right but it's business and ethics and paying out 15M are bound to butt heads....
