Didn't Koeman give him the captain's armband for a couple of games?

Yeah, I think he asked him to take it over to Leighton.

1-3 happened on Koeman's watch. Maybe it was a coincidence and he was just done.

However, let's face it from Day 1 pretty much he was Koeman's whipping boy and the one that was dropped and/or chewed out in the media. Koeman tried to get in Sigurdsson in pretty much every transfer window before this one so maybe he knew he was for the chop as soon as his replacement came in and started making plans.

Regarding 4, he's not said anything before or after in public so nothing has really changed there. Personally I don't mind that, I'd rather he dealt with the club directly than via Twitter.
Well you would have if he would indeed have dealt with the club ! So personally I think he wants to go and in fact a lot has changed .He has allowed himself to be shown on the media smiling and made no -well at least as far as we know -and that is all we deal in here really isn't it -sign of any pen to paper . Which I unequivocally hope he doesn't unless it is to make a quick buck for the club ,ala Moyes!

If he wants to have a better chance of winning trophies, improve as a player and forge an England career he'll go to Spurs.

No brainer.
I think you have hit the nail on the head ,all the squad players get a medal .If he wants to be a special player he should stay with his boyhood club and prove me wrong .

So if he stays he's a special player but if he goes to Spurs he's suddenly not that good anymore and only a squad player. Right, okay.

We'll see what happens, at the moment though he has to compete with about 3-4 other players in his position. Unsworth could be influential but that will depend on whether he gets the job or not.

I think Its more the fact that the players spurs have are better, which will make him a squad player

According to Stubbs be turned down Chelsea as he was worried about the lack of game time, I fail to see how different that'll be at spurs? He's not good enough for that level at the moment and he should realise that

Reading Unsworth comments about him being 3 to 4 weeks away I would be annoyed if he played him (if still in charge) if he hasnt committed by then. Personally I think hes gone and I dont want us to invest anymore time in him

Yeah - I'd hate it if he helped us win some football matches while he's still here.

Would much rather he got paid his obscene Premiership footballer's wages just to fuck about at Finch Farm having massages and jacuzzis and shit.

Newcastle's potential new owners are picturing him as a marquee signing....

If he's 3 to 4 weeks away that brings us to the beginning of December almost. It'd take a good 6 games to get up to match speed by which time he'd be ready to sign for spurs or anyone else. I'd rather focus on players that want to be here, not get others match fit so they're ready to go when they sign for another club. I don't understand why you'd differ? Shall we bring him back, build the team around him then be back to square one in January but with a disillusioned Sigurdson or another player that does want to be here?
