The funny thing is I think Niasse actually would wish Koeman good luck and mean it.

Had plenty of opportunity to show it was personal or he held a grudge and never did. I assume Koeman turning away when he scored was partly because he was expecting Niasse might make a point and he did, for the ball. Was one of the only players still trying for him, as the ship was saved from fire, by sinking against Arsenal.

He has now got 4 goals in 180 mins, 3 of them were assists from Davies, 2 of the goals he won the ball in the first place. Now he gets to play for the manager who he played so hard for in the under 23s and who knows his qualities and believed in him.

Love this bit after the 2 goals at Bournemouth.

I think with Mahrez you keep him as long as you can, you can't replace him. leicester will still get a big fee next Jan if you really want to piss him off. I think 100m+ is not unreasonable and would likely be more achievable in summer.

He won them the title alright. I think you never really allow the best players to leave, they have release clauses or run down their contract so you're forced to take a price. Either that or start getting pictured with bongs and prostitutes or piss everyone off sufficiently to seek an exit. Things can change in 6 months and even if he sulks for a bit, he'll want to play at some point, between windows you have fresh if diminishing chance to renegotiate new contract, maybe give a release clause, 3/4 of the year is outside a transfer window.

Plenty of players have downed tools only to pick them back up not long after. And plenty of those have gone on to sign new contracts with existing club, it sometimes just needs more hope, new manager and a much bigger pile of money. Only clubs get to interact or negotiate directly with them on regular basis. Lukaku gave Koeman a chance to move us on and even when he hadn't, he still nearly signed. I think in January you're always going to get some very good players feeling the season is over, so you tend to get more strops.

Think it's pretty common in most cases, it's paid up until the end of contract, unless you take another job. But in both Martinez and Koeman's case, they took international jobs, which presumably doesn't stop compensation payments.

We sacked Martinez and hired Koeman before Martinez got Belgium job. So we hadn't been burned once, before we agreed terms in same manner.
