  1. No chance he is going anywhere. He knows what the situation is here and wouldn't have been expecting to be anything more than being a squad player. I was happy for him to be rewarded for his service with us and you need players like him and Ulloa that are happy to play a part whenever they are needed. Nobody else will ever pay him what we are paying him either. Giving James, a second squad player in his position a long term contract didn't seem so clever though.
  2. I've not critisced anyone for liking the article.
  3. He shouldn't be immune from any criticism, just because he has had an injury and he might be a nice chap. He's worked hard and earnt himself probably around an £8m contract. It shows that the hard work has paid off so good luck to the lad. He needs to show that he is worth that on the pitch now though as this is what counts.
  4. You shouldn't be giving preference to players just because they are well liked, so I doubt it. He considered James to not be good enough for the Champions League squad and he is fully entitled to that opinion. He has obviously been treated very well by the club in giving him 4 years, so hopefully he will now repay the faith they have in him.
  5. Return of the Matt

    No i'm not a huge fan. I just don't think he is good enough to step up to the required level we are at in the Premier League. The thing that annoys me a bit though is when people say how good he has been for us in the Premier League. He hasn't shown it for us yet in this league as we were poor in the season he did play and he had a limited impact when our form improved in the great escape. I hope he improves and is a great addition to our squad this year. If not then he won't be going anywhere in the next 4 years due to his contract and salary with us.
  6. Return of the Matt

    I posted on this topic a while back and i'm not going over it all again. He had a very limited impact and was subbed of when losing in one of the matches. It's a myth that he played a major part in the great escape.
  7. Return of the Matt

    He didn't play much when our form turned around.
  8. Return of the Matt

    No he's not. It also means it would be difficult for him to move anywhere else due to his salary here.
  9. Adrien Silva - Terms Agreed

    One of the two players would have been very expensive subs if the Drinkwater move hadn't gone through. I understand if the club didn't want this to happen. We shouldn't be wasting money.
  10. Adrien Silva - Terms Agreed

    You don't think £20m was a lowball offer?
  11. Adrien Silva - Terms Agreed

    I know, what a great state we'd be in if he had any say on our finances! We'd be selling Vardy in Jan for £10m.
  12. Adrien Silva - Terms Agreed

    Also there is nothing to say we could have tied up the Silva deal earlier in the summer. He might have been waiting for a Spurs offer as they were linked very strongly with him. Some players only want to move to clubs like us later on in the window when they fully know their options.
  13. Adrien Silva - Terms Agreed

    Sounds like a ridiculous price to sell one of your best players.
  14. Adrien Silva - Terms Agreed

    Oh you sound such a clever boy. It's so simple then isn't it. We could have sold Drinkwater for £20m, Mahrez for £32m and had our trousers properly pulled down. Or turned down the £35m offer for Drinkwater and kept a very unhappy player. We did the right thing and had the replacement lined up if a suitable bid came in. If not he stays. People that think all transfers should be completed early in the summer are not living in the real world.
  15. Adrien Silva - Terms Agreed

    Should we have just let Mahrez go for £32m? Ridiculous comment.
