Just a thought. Actually thought of this a while ago regarding Craig Gordon and James McFadden but prompted to post tonight as earlier this evening got talking to James as his son as joined the Football team I help to coach. This means surely that James's preference is to remain in Scotland.
Suppose Motherwell sign him and offer £5k a week. Now that's a lot for 'well and also a lot less than he is used to...however. He signs the contract till the end of the season, on the basis that in Jan, if and when a club comes in, the price is fixed at whatever Motherwell have paid him in salary, say approx £80k. In the meantime surely his signature would increase the crowd at Fir Park, say add 1000 to the gate, 2 home games a month covers his £20k monthly salary and gives and extra £20k! Plus what is made in merchandising! No-one loses! 'Well get a top player and make some cash and James gets games and fitness, poss a move and back in Scotland squad. Even if no-one comes him, 'Well still rake in cash till seasons end!
Am a Celtic fan but am curious to know what Motherwell fans think of this. Hell I'd go and watch them!
