Not sure why people are suprised about the solanke fee. 21 year old english striker. Who's appeard for england at all levels including senior team.

Can't imagine why when he only had Salah, Mane and Firmino ahead of him.
He was a hot property when he went to Liverpool a world cup winner wasn't he? I guess he'd have probably had a higher profile had he been playing in the championship with Norwich but I imagine Bournemouth are banking on him fulfilling his potential and I really don't think £19m is extortionate in that case.
And Origi and Sturridge

This. It isn't surprising at all, unless your transfer mindset is stuck to pre 2016 when it went to another level of madness.

There was a story going around last year that Clyne had done something disgraceful (can't remember what now) but from that moment he's barely had a look in. They could be desperate to offload.

Yes I too remember something disgraceful going on.

Wasn't it something to do with him putting on a Liverpool shirt.:depressed:

I still don't think the Clyne thing is their smartest move. I mean sure he's not first choice but with the FA Cup, Champions League and Title race rotation will be needed and they don't have many other RB options. Trent AA is great for them and Gomez CAN play there... but Gomez is a better CB. Which leaves who for RB?
The ever so versatile James Milner ;)

So Arsenal close to signing Suarez?

Very clever signing that could turn out to be another Corzola or David Silva of the PL. Shame as I thought he'd be a good signing for us and lovely player to have in the squad to soften the blow of losing Eriksen which is a real possibility.

Neil Warnock whinging about Nathaniel Clyne going to Bournemouth over Cardiff stating both player and Liverpool lack class (although would agree with latter lol).

Does Warnock ever stop complaining and bitching?

Don’t blame Clyne for picking Bournemouth personally. Warnock did give Clyne his debut but maybe Clyne thought he was a massive cock as well and I’d much rather go and play for Bournemouth than Cardiff who are struggling in league and well... based in Wales... 🙊🙊

Warnock would be better off trying to improve his team after what we and Gillingham did to them.

I'd rather live around Cardiff than Bournemouth myself.

He's played the diversion tactic perfectly. Cardiff get knocked out the cup by Gillingham but no one is speaking about that as they're now talking about transfer issues instead.

But if you were Clyne you cant really blame him. Play for a dinosaur at a club thats likely to be relegated or play for a fairly good mid table team who play good football under one of the best British managers around.

Bournemouth is lovely
Took my daughter to the university open day there and had a look around the area.

Never been to Cardiff, but would struggle to see how it would be a better option.
I don't doubt it, but I'd definitely recommend a weekend in Cardiff if you've never been. I just prefer the proximity of mountains.

Oh trust me. Plenty are talking about Cardiff's exit from the cup. Plastered over the back pages. Don't think it's a diversion tactic, more the fact that the two key is venting after seeing his team exit.

The loss being the catalyst if you like.
