Every example you gave fits into...

Every club sells if the player wants away or the club no longer wants them, because it's in nobody's interest to keep them. That does NOT make them a selling club.

...so, not every club is a selling club. You agree with my original statement yet blamed it on my 'attitude'.


Sometimes it gets boring being right all the time :wink:
I see you have named lots of clubs that are not selling clubs

It is difficult to argue if people can't read.

Real Madrid, Barcelona, Liverpool & Man Utd were mentioned by Bristle.
And I said... "every example you gave fits into not a selling club"

There are loads & loads more, but if you don't understand, why should I waste my time typing?

Let me try and work it out, I’m a bit slow, what you are saying is they sell players but they are not selling clubs, we buy players but we’re not a buying club? No, I don’t get it. Money makes the World go round, if we don’t sell players for a profit we can’t recruit new players. It is exactly the same for the clubs I mentioned. The four clubs above you can add PSG and Juventus.

The Gold Star Award for brizzle changes nothing. We're still a selling club.

Not all clubs are selling clubs. Most clubs sell players. We have a stated strategy of looking for players that we can improve with the stated goal of selling them for a huge profit. It's different when it's a strategy than when it is tactical. Simple really.

All clubs sell players. Most do this as a prerequisite to either or both improve their team and also to produce a profit for their club. We are no different and in general we do it better than a lot of clubs.
The balance of improving the team as opposed to supporting the club financially is where the questions appear. Dmac and co. look after our club financially superbly. Some fans would rather they put emphasis on the playing part of the club. It's all a question of balance.
I would rather see Posh operating in the manner of definitely being able to survive rather than seeing us struggle to pay players each month ala Derby County and many other clubs that are struggling to manage the future existence of their club.
I know that we all would like to see Posh playing regularly in the Championship but realistically we can only see ourselves as a top end League One team that flirts with the next division up. Slowly we are getting there and we need to have that new stadium to even think about staying in the Championship. It's a bit of a chicken and egg situation. We need that stadium but need to be playing in the Championship to fund and maintain it. Which way do you fall?
