    The question is: how much did Sunderland pay for Fletcher? I know Sunderland are desperate for a striker and they do have Martin O’Neill so I’m sure they overpaid for him.

    • The Gaffer says:

      Supposedly it’s between £12m to £15m, which is a LOT of money for a good 25-year-old striker but he will definitely score goals this season.

        Wow, I didn’t know he was 25. For some reason, I thought he was 29 going on 30. I have no idea why. British transfer and only 25 years old, I’ll say it’s fair price; S. Fletcher just need to score half of many as Andy Carroll ;)

    Wondering how the tv money is split for the EPL? whatever the contract, it is then split 20 times each team gets same share? i would love to see the books on some of these teams QPR how will they ever get a return on money invested.small stadium not getting to Europe anytime soon no huge transfers going out.Sunderland payed to much for Fletcher but maybe that is the going price for an average striker at some point the monopoly money has to run out.

    Hmm £12m to £15m for Steven Fletcher and Clint Dempsey can’t find someone to pay $10m for him. Crazy!
