Why is being "better than Bolasie" such an apparent justification to sign him? Just because someone is better than a player we have here doesn't mean he's the level of player we want.

I can't believe you've seen enough of him to make that statement with such certainty.

Well its not but being coupled with the fact that hes available for well below market value (apparently) he would surely be a decent enough signing

So you want us to sign players just because they look decent value as opposed to whether we actually need them or not. Okay.

Decent value and better than what we have seems a good place to start. Hes a good premier league player whod get in our team and is way under market value. Yeah Id be okay with us signing him

Hes comparable to sigurdsson in quality at a third of the cost. Who do you want us to sign?

Not Shaqiri.

He's not really comparable to Sigurdsson anyway, over the period Shaqiri's been in the Premier League Sigurdsson's scored 24 to his 15 and assisted 21 to his 14 and that's allowing for Sigurdsson struggling at the start this season and missing the last 2 months, there's only about 10 starts difference between the two of them as well.

He'll be a marginal upgrade at best to what we've got, all I'm saying is that doesn't mean it's reason to sign a player.

I don't think there's a single fan of a premier league team (yourself aside) who would even think of taking Shakiri over Sigurdsson.
My momma says I'm special.

Hes an average PL player who just about stands out in a team that got relegated. Hes the same player who signed for them a few years ago, have you seen much change in him since he moved to the PL? So its unlikely hed significantly improve if he moved here.

There is a reason hes playing at Stoke, as he does have the odd stand out goal most of the time hes not offering much special.

I dont mind him, but hes at his level now. Hes a good player for a team that has ambitions of midtable or thereabouts.

Meh, not going to continue fighting his corner, partly because hes not really worth it. If we did get him I wouldnt be breaking out the champagne, but I would say if you put him in eredvisie in say kluiverts place, hed probably tear the shite out of it.

Is what it is. Im sure someone will have him.
I knew that someday I was going to die, and I knew that before I died, two things would happen to me. That number one; I would regret my entire life, and number two; that I would want to live my life over again.

He's not Mc Geady or nothing like. He would be a perfectly adequate signing but he wouldn't make us much better than what we are.

If hes really available so cheaply I wouldnt be that surprised to see 1 of the top 6 take him as a squad player
