I'd be furious if we spent that on him, he was good for the first 2/3 months of the season then nowhere to be seen from around Christmas onwards. I'd be tempted to spend big on doucoure though.
Think he's a pretty good prospect, but overpriced. Aren't all premier league players though?
In regard to his form drop off, he'd been playing football without a break for 2 years. That's bound to take its toll, especially in a new and very physical league with the manager who bought you leaving the club and tactics changing.
I reckon the drop off of doucoure in the second half of the season would be more of a worry. He only scored his goals (and fantasy football points) in the first half of the season. Can't remember anything creative of note in the second half of the season.
