Hudson to Cardiff for £1,075,000 plus
Gotta love Peter Risdale, probably in the top 10 worst businessmen on the planet.
Risdale: "How much you want for that lump Mark Hudson then?"
Murray: "£500,000 and we will pay his train fare to Cardiff."
Risdale: "How about we give you a million.... no you know what make it £1,075,000. I have some brown envelopes in my desk somewhere. What you say?
Murray: "Wow Pete, that's great. Fantastic, but he's not very good you know?"
Risdale: "Yeh, we know. Anyhow just in case he turns out alright, what about a sell on clause?"
Murray: "Really? Blimey. You do know he took us down?"
Risdale: "Down? He's taking us up.... ok my final offer £1,075,000 plus a sell on and another £250,000 when he get's us promoted."
Murray: "Er, done."
Great job by the club, and whoever negotiated that deal
