I’ve already forgotten most of the selfish shots and misplaced passes.  But I will never forget that goal.  It was an inspiring moment at a desperately sad time, and I love him for scoring it.  Even if I’m the only soul on here that does.

No you haven't, you just referred to them :P

Flipping over old posts again I wish Demarai well but the writing was on the wall all the way thro the posts altho he came with a good reputation. Oh Well , you can't develop them all, one of our failures. The contrast with JJs posts all the way through were very good . Less pleasure reading one we failed with.

 

Stop Press , Just watched his highlights on Youtube. If this was the same guy as we brought on against Palace we might have won. My guess is he was a Puel signing or Puel liked him and the difference in confidence is everything. Trouble is Claude did little for the other ten.

He was signed under Ranieri.  January signing.  Premier League winner

Does he have a choice? If we receive an offer during the January window can't we accept it? Over the years there've been stories from ex-players saying they didn't want to leave a club but had been sold regardless - isn't this the same scenario?

...I  have read stories about players refusing to go to another club even though the details had been agreed!!!

  Matty Piper has stated that he was asked to go to Sunderland as an agreement had been made but he did not want to go. He did eventually end up at Sunderland after he was emotionally blackmailed to take the offer.

  I suppose it depends on the individual and his agent.

Of course he does. He has a contract with us and we have to honour it unless all parties agree a deal.

From a purely player point of view he'd be a bit of a mug to leave now. With no transfer fee in the summer you'd forsee a queue of clubs happy to have his signature so firstly, more choice for him. Secondly, with no transfer fee they could afford to give him better terms, including foreign teams. There's no real loyalty either side in football so I wouldn't blame him for hanging on.

Can’t see Demarai Gray being able to pick up the French language when after 4 years of daily training and games he still hasn’t figured out when to pass rather than shoot...

Be fine, he can just shout, always works abroad right :D
