Depends what offers they get in the summer I suppose. If someone comes in willing to pay £2-£5m you probably feel you have to take it. He could break his leg in the first game of the next season and that money would be gone.

The known suitors are Swansea and Forest and they are unlikely to be putting up anything like that kind of money would they? I would have thought they likely go about as high as £1 mill? The good thing is Franchise only get 80% of that money so they are going to want to get that fee as high as they possibly can which benefits us.

ďSurely he will be worth more than that in a year or so the way he has been playing, you would think they would be mad to cash in now having only signed him 6 months agoĒ

Depends on the mindset of the owners at MK. Scott Twine will have little (not none, but little) say in the matter. If they are building a credible team to take them to the championship heíd likely as not be touted by the club or Scottís agent. If theyíre up for a quick Buck then the opposite is likely. Scott will just want to play as often as he can and let his boots do the talking. As for breaking his leg!! Oh youíre a cheerful cunt arenít you? Of course he could, equally he could next season bag 20+ goals for Franchise, I really donít think the leg breaking possibilities would be a factor in his near term future and I doubt Aberdeen, Clem and Garner will be planning this transfer window or next seasons player procurement on the back of any monies the club may or may not get from MK and the sell on clause.

I've got no idea who is interested or what they can afford, but with Twine being touted as one of the top players in L1 this year the figures I mentioned aren't toally unthinkable. If the sum was nearer £1m then the decision might not be so clear cut, but if were top end of L1 I doub't we'd be turning that kind of money down for anyone.

Clearly my wild hypothetical scenario has riled you. Not sure why. But there are plenty of equally less dramatic possibilities. He struggles with niggly injuries which hamper his form and put people off buying. Squad changes over the summer don't really work to his strengths. MK go up and he doesn't quite cut it in the Champioship... All of these would detract from the fee they could get, hence taking the money while it's there.

Well, if your hypothesis is in the right direction why buy him if he is injury prone and summer reshuffles donít suit him? Iíd have thought that being the case other more savvy clubs wouldnít touch him with a barge pole on that basis so cashing in is going to be very a limited possibility surely?

It's got nothing to do with being injury prone, as you well know. Simply that the offer of money now versus the uncertainty of the future is hard to resist, especially in a climate where many clubs have been starved of income. Very few clubs in League 1 can turn down a 7-figure offer in the hope of getting more further down the line.

(only joking posh, I don't blame anyone for asking for money back. the handling of this has been poweresque)

Interestingly I asked if I could have a credit for home tickets so I could bring my Dad along to some games.

This was what Iíd requested for the refund for ST & away tickets from the previous season, which got written off.

But even for that Iíve heard nothing.

PS. I have found a way to save almost two grand a year though, donít go to home games Wink

I'll tell you what, credit where credit is due barely a day seems to go by without another commercial partner for the club being announced, even if they are not paying a fortune its really helping to swell the coffers and get the club out there.
