Hi there! I think I'm doing great about the difference between to and for, but I have a doubt about this phrase that I just seen.

a loan deal to a team like ours in my opinion just wouldn't work out.

could I use for in this sentence?

a loan deal for a team like ours in my opinion just wouldn't work out.

I think that for is the right choice I guess.

I'd appreciate your help!

    They mean different things.

    A loan deal to a team like ours just wouldn't work out : it wouldn't work out from the point of view of the lender
    A loan deal for a team like ours just wouldn't work out : it wouldn't work for our team

    Hi Glasguensis first of all thank you so much!

    if I had used for in that phrase, I meant for the welfare of the group, the advantages that the loan would bring such as success, status etc?
