I think there's a good chance Wilf will be gone in January. There're a few big teams needing a defensive MF that'll be willing to pay . Arsenal, Man U, and city need a DM, they'd love to steal Wilf from us.

why would you think that, pretty much zero chance, he is on a 6 year contract.

No way so we sell any major player in January bar something extraordinary like the Xhaka incident.

That cheque will have to nine digits on it.

 

Champions League qualification will be worth at least £50m. £2.5m per place in the PL.

 

There is no value in selling him in January. If someone wants him bad enough they'll still pay a similar fee in the summer. Every player in the squad knows that they don't leave mid season unless the club sanction it without being under duress. In the summer players might agitate for a move but not in January when the club may well be on the cusp of CL qualification.

I don’t think you have thought this through properly.

 

 

 

Since the owners took over, when have we ever sold a player on anyone’s but our own terms?

 

Why would we sell someone so instrumental half way through a season?

 

Mahrez had to wait two years for his ‘ dream move’

Interesting that, in his post-match interview, Madders mentioned Wilf as the player that allows he and others to play the way they do. "Does the work of two players" was what he said about him.

 

He's different gravy. Rarely gets MOTM but is 8/10 pretty much every week. Love the guy.

 

Shades of the Kante brothers, methinks.

What do yer reckon If someone offered 150 million, 

 

Sell and play Dennis as DM with Hamza and Nempalys as alternatives, for when Dennis covers for Youri or Madders further forward. We would lose some solidity which would cost us, but we would look even better in a footballing sense.

 

Not that I think anyone would pay it, because it would be a world record (for a DM) by miles.

Ndidi is yet another example of a player who ‘caught out’ a decent number of posters on here.

Like Maddison, Pereira and even Vardy ffs, people were writing that they were over-the-hill, weren’t very good anyway and the such like. Many argued that Vardy should be binned.

The problem, of course, was PUEL.

These players are top quality footballers but either did not or could not perform to their best under Puel.

Now we have a decent manager, instilling confidence into these players, playing them correctly and with a smile on his face, we see the players for who they really are.

Ndidi is top drawer. Look at his stats but also just watch him play. He rarely loses a 50:50 and generally knows where to be to break up opposition play. Puel had him as a box to box midfielder. Which was so wrong.

number one , Thats doubtful but this management group will not be pushed around & will do whats best for for the team. 

two  ...   If we are still in the running for Champions League Wilf won't want to go & we make more money by not selling.

Ndidi seems a smart chap, I think even if he does get good offers in Jan he will want to see this season out and probably next season too it we get CL.

I don't know if Ndidi has improved massively on the ball or we are just generally using him better and not expecting him to do too much with it. To be fair though he is capable of the odd ping out wide to Ricardo. Superb player and would take a huge bid to get him. We have so much value in this squad its unreal.

Really shd have scored that sitter vs The Arse - think thats why Madders gave him a shout out on TV after the game cos he would been beating himself up about it,
