If I was the club I would try and get a friendly against Chelsea and a decent sell on clause rather than go to tribunal. Worth a go.

Milts I have said this for a while. He's actually made us look like fools. Using our academy and not ever once giving any hope of signing on. Out of respect he should have with a move in mind. Disrespectfull if you ask me
I heard that him and his family are great people and in return for what Tis and the Academy have done for him have always wanted the club to get a good deal for him. Don't read too much in to the fact he hadn't signed for us. Of course we'll have to wait and see if that's true but I don't think it's fair to say he's treated us like mugs.

Everyone saying he won't get a chance are wrong. He's predicted to go "all the way" the next top player. That's why one of the world's best teams want him and have got him. If he doesn't make it he sure will at some club. Moving to one of the world's top clubs is hardly a bad move. Well done Ethan

As well as being disrespectful in your earlier post, you managed to completely contradict yourself in this post and ended up agreeing with those you said were wrong for saying he wouldn't make it.

I think the point people are making is not a sleight on Ethan's ability rather it's a valid commentary on how few progress to Chelsea's first team.

I've heard the same thing, via someone in the academy set up. I hope & trust it is correct as, together with the expected fee for Ollie, it will set the club up financially for many a year.

Also, we all know the fee will be undisclosed, so we on exeweb can squabble for the next six months over what we definitely, are really sure, the exact total is....

I think we're ****ed personally.
How are we ****ed exactly, we recieve an amount of money, proving that are yoof system carries on working, it seems an odd version of ****ed to me. Unless you are using it for the pleasurable way, in that case maybe.

Wrong! I said well done for getting a new club like Chelsea and I think he will make it. However I also said he's disrespectful for not signing a contract with a move in mind

****ed in the sense that when you try to be really positive about the situation, what you've just said above is correct. But, surely you MUST of been hoping that we'd get a substantial amount for him after he'd signed a deal. This way we lose a gem of a player, get a pittance for him in comparison to what he should be worth. Also, there's no help to our glorious academy if this begins to happen to every great player that comes through it.

Before i get slammed for being a negative ****, I'm not saying this is the clubs fault, but the systems. We got ****ed by the system.

I have also heard from someone within the Academy hierarchy (who is most definitely in the know) that certain paperwork was done and submitted regarding Ethan (even though he did not sign) which would make sure the club would get a substantial (in the millions) fee for him.
The club will make a huge profit on this deal, wait and see!!

Nah, as I said before, he was talked of as a major prospect for many years, we could have got nothing. We've done okay with players, and we'll probably do okay with Watkins for instance.

The system may be rubbish, but we were screwed with Fox, when we got nowt when he left back under the old system, you hadn't signed a contract then you got nothing.

Lets wait and see how much we've got before we decide if we've been robbed.

Wrong! You then hedged your bets by saying which is no different to what others have said.

Are you Donald Trump?
Yes I suppose you're right. What I'm saying that there's only two other clubs that you'd probably want to sign for over Chelsea in England and that's personal preference. But once you've signed for Chelsea it would be very hard to make it as a good professional footballer. Look at Nathan Ake, a player who didn't make it at Chelsea but just been sold for 20 million. Even players who don't make it at Chelsea still make success

I can't see anything good coming out of this deal.Chelsea will swindle us out of any future carrot that has been dangled in front of us.I await a the fine details of the deal to be published in full by the club.

As has been mentioned above, if the Ampadus appreciate what City has done for Amps, including giving him the chance to play in the full team at such a young age, which helped Amps to prove his ability, then they also hold some cards. Don't forget Amps was also wanted by Liverpool and MU. Chelsea do have competitors. The Ampadua coukd literally say : "We'd like to join you but we woukd like to reward Exeter City for everything they've done". Now some will say that is naive or speculation, and I think the Ampadus are free to do whatever they want, but it's not an impossible scenario.
