Don't know if already posted but after the final whistle and already subbed off ,he went to the Gwladys Street and gave his shirt to a fan. Little gestures like this mean the world to our young fans.
You must spend a fair amount of time with your heart in your mouth!!
Mate when he turned funny and slipped in the first half I thought he’d Bolassie’d himself.
File this under things which didnt happen.
Seems like nothing is changing just getting shafted on price for mediocre players
Can't see Brands going for this, he'd be putting his bollocks on the chopping block in the first month of his new job. If the lad flops he'll be back in Eindhoven by next summer. File it under 'Bollocks' and get back to speculating about Lookman.
Feel sick reading that . I think the ludicrous fees have finally killed off my interest in the Premier League .
not arsed on price, would be happy with him here.
makes no sense what so ever, have a feeling everyone is still playing footy manager in the back office 2020 edition
If the price is anywhere near those quoted we should make our excuses and leave.
This is Keane all over again. Over-paying for a player that no-one else is interested in.
Think his potential is really high. Physical qualities as well as with the ball. Fee massive but the right age (unlike say for Sig).
This is fucking terrible, buying average players and getting whacked to pay stupid fees. It's moronic.
I’m willing to back silva on this one.It’s certainly a lot better than spending this money on a 28 year old.
Totally uninspiring signing. It's like we've just bought the new Panini football album and taken the same approach as the last regime. I didn't see anything last season that would in any way justify this type of fee.
Fucking furious if that fee is true. We'll be a laughing stock AGAINPlays good for 1/3 of a season and £50 million?!People saying he played good under Silva, if he's worth £50 million he would have been good for the rest of the season regardless of the manager.They get shaqiri for £13 million and we pay £50 mill for a player who is worth £25 mill at best?!Please tell me I'm in a nightmare, fucking ridiculous
Great investment this, good age and bags of potential
Trying to link his dip in form with Silva's departure is desperate.
15mill for Wellbeck makes miles more sense than 50mill for a 15 game wonder.
Here's a selection of early comments, when we were very close to signing him:
I don’t see it myself, but what I would say is he actually underperformed his xg last year. Typically in one season wonder purple patch types you see them over perform and score a load of jammy goals so where they would maybe be expected to score 8 they score like 16 or whatever. This says he shoots a lot and gets into positions to shoot a lot which is really good. Depends on the team making his chances and tactics (Marco ) and if someone always undershoots then it might mean they have a bad finish? But I think if you don’t think about the dough he’d be a good player to have.I’d like to keep Lookman AND get this guy, but just saying, might not be the waste it feels atm.
Aw look at me being relentlessly-negative again. Same old same old ey.
