    Joe Cole - Do I sell him?

    in July 2001 Joe Cole was a hot prospect with the world at his feet and an integral part of West Ham's side...

    On Champ Man he is obviously a wonderkid and everyone and their aunt wants a piece of him but West Ham are cash strapped and generally heading towards debt before August is over in season 1 so...

    Option A - Sell Joe

    Do I cash in when someone decides to throw silly money at me for him - I've regularly seen him go for 8m+ to exotic places like Leeds & Celtic and hope I can find someone of equal or better quality on the cheap so I can balance the books...

    ...or

    Option B - Keep Joe

    Do I keep Joe and watch as he gets a pissy on when I don't sell him and watch the Hammers spiral into debt!

    Thoughts? suggestions on who to sign appreciated (ODB obviously). I'm considering Roberto Palacios on a free but i'll have to get him on day 1...?

    Thanks Fellas

    Well Joe Cole is amazing in every aspect of the game. I would keep him, don't relegate in the first season (because he has a clause right?) and then sell him in the summer for +30 mil.

    If you can put the best out of him, sometime he might cost >50 mil.

    Don't sell, he's the best player in that West Ham squad and there are others you should be able to offload to raise some cash.There's a whole thread on amazing cheap players in this section, sign them and look to offload your highest earners, if I remember correctly Repka is one and he's a red card waiting to happen.

    Try to sign jesper blomqvist and kiko. You can then sell them for about 8 +16 million euros.

    I imagine you can turn profits on West and Guardiola as well if you want to go down that route.

    I'd play people for at least half a season though to get their value and rep up though if you aren't in terrible financial trouble which you shouldn't be to start off with.
