Ok thanks guys for the clarification. I do like Gio's example of car debt. I just personally hate debt, and hate interest. Not dislike..hate. If you think about it, your giving a rich person/company/bank free money because they have tons of it, and your net payable amount skyrockets and that much harder to catch up on. But if this debt is putting gas in your car then why sell your means of getting places.
Also Cathal.. 5.65 M over the next 11 years is shy of 68M. There must be more figures or variables involved.
Anyways, my point was selling those 4 players wouldn't exactly decimate the team if you sold them on average for 25M. You could pay off that remainder (if it was possible) and would have a few more millions to buy replacements and still be competitive.
Also, too bad when Lazio dont make Europa, but it seems the seasons we dont make Europa, we are in the Coppa Italia + SupperCoppa anyways to make up for it.
