Could see Newcastle coming in at £15m. Mike Ashley would see that as a big win given the fee we paid him. Bit like our keano to pool dealings. Wolves would be a good shout or Watford. I say trade at £20m and take the loss. Replace with youth or if we keep dembele for another year and try to bring in a cm.....

I know Rafa rates him - believe he made him captain before he left. And from Levy's perspective this would make sense because I imagine we still owe them money for the transfer and they could instead just write off the debt instead of requiring them to find the funds and structure the payments themselves, meaning it becomes an "easier" transfer in theory. However, their fan base would go into absolute meltdown if they brought him back. It's not like he was a world class player that went rogue and pissed them off by leaving, they hated him for years before he left.

It's a really strange one. I was vehemently against the signing in the first place, he's been an absolute disaster while he's been here (barring that superb game at the Bernabeu), but the way our central midfield is looking, can we even afford to let him go?

Hope it's a decent move for him. Don't mind the bloke, just not good enough for spurs and it's not his fault that we bought him.
Excellent post on this topic. He'll do well somewhere else.

Awaits the League 2 comments.

It's a shame because Sissoko's a good lad really, great attitude, hard worker, etc. but I can't get round the fact that replacing him would make me much happier than keeping him on.

Thats my issue with people crtiticising him. He workd hard and always seemed to give 110%, never moaned. Its just hes not good enough

Hope he can get a move

OK, this seems to need to be said again so here I am, saying it again.

Any media stories or links of any kind go into the player thread.

completely agree with people saying he works hard and doesn't deserve the abuse... I really hate when I see our "fans" lay into any of our players on social media etc.... the way to make someone play better isn't to completely destroy their self belief! and also they are still human beings despite their pay cheques. But I'm still more excited by ITK on him potentially leaving than I would be if we had actual ITK linking us to Messi!

We've done 5 pages on 1 simple line of ITK and all the variances of posts could be encapsulated in probably about 3 posts total, I don't want to be a moaning bastard about it but lets take it to the player thread considering its about 1 singular player before we end up losing this thread and likely some decent ITK that would go along with it.

Where is the danger of thread getting locked coming from? Honest opinion about itk...

From the fact that we've already established it could be any club on the planet, and the additional fact that we've already been asked to quit the guesswork by A&C, and the further fact that you've responded to that by indulging in a bit more speculation and guesswork?

Have a word with yourselves boys. If its been covered, please don't repeat it. 5 pages of

1. Hooray
2. Bit more respect needed
3. Can't kick a ball
4. Guess the club

Use the ratings if you need to, but whats the point going over previously mentioned ground. No doubt this will get lost in the next 5 pages of

1. Hooray
2. Bit more respect needed
3. Can't kick a ball
4. Guess the club

Edit: Sorry, and girls

I would hope there's some sensibility about and its nice to see (and appreciated) that people are helping out with 'nudges' in the appropriate direction. But do it nicely.

For what its worth, I doubt very much that there will be any more locking of this thread now that we're in the home straight, that wouldn't sit right with us, now is the time, more than ever, that this thread will be busy and more importantly, needed and even more importantly, have some fun too.

BUT

The banstick is out, polished and lubed. We'll be making liberal use of it should people persist in spamming the thread or whatnot and I'm pretty sure nobody wants to lose their access now, right on the vinegar strokes of the transfer window, so if people just give a little thought to what they post, we'll all have a grand time of it.

I only hope this means we can move on one of our targets if Sissoko leaving solidifies

I'll be livid when we play his team in the last game of the season and he runs to the corner flag with the ball and keeps it there for 2 minutes and we blow our chances to win the league!!! Keep Sissy!!!

If we are open to selling Sissoko and Wanyama has a long term injury again and willing to listen to offers for Dembele, then it is clear we are confident of getting a CM.
