My cousin killed himself a couple of years ago after getting into debt playing those fixed odds terminals on the high street, so since then Iíve done some looking into it and the betting companies are all pretty awful.

Even if you use their self ban feature thing, as soon as the duration is up they start emailing you with promo offers to come back to them.

As much as a I donít like betting companies it feels like forced outrage to complain about them being on our shirts when most of the league will have kits made by companies using sweatshops and child labour.

Without wanting to let betting companies off the hook one bit, I'd say a huge range of factors work together to produce such an atmosphere. For example, why do people take small strips of paper so seriously they are prepared to kill themselves over it? Why doesn't the community help those who can't afford things? Why are our lives so devoid of meaning that accumulating wealth becomes the only thing we see as worth pursuing? Why is betting on things so attractive to us and why does advertising it work to attract us?

That sounds about right. You'd want a silly amount to justify selling a massive, emerging talent who we spent a lot on, after just one season at the club.

Don't see him going anywhere this year, but if someone wants to pay that, fair play to them, and we reinvest it wisely (hopefully).

Think as a player you always want to leave on a high.

Scoring the goal he did against Leicester and winning the treble was a cracking way to go out.

His finishing is awful. Watch his play, technically he just hasnít got it and his decision making is even worse. Lashing at shots, shooting from poor positions..... heís been like that his whole career.

31 appearances for Malaga and 16 goals is neither a terrible finisher nor a bad decision maker .

Younger than I thought, only just turned 33.

Shame how the injuries have plagued him over the last few years.

On a small level, I'm happy that we have players in that biggest clubs want. Shows we're doing something right.
