...it does seem like his life of commuting to Manchester for all this time has not helped!!!

  He and Matty James car shared travelling back and forth, Ferguson insisted that the players settled down as soon as possible,not having a settled life style has obviously not helped and his numerous wake up calls has failed to give him the nudge he needed to sort himself out. There is a lack of maturity in his story and I hope he sorts himself out soon.


Again, I do feel for him. But he knew he would be close to his family when he moved for more money/his career. Had he been a success at Chelsea he’d still not have been near his son. He didn’t have to move to London.

It goes to show that there's no smoke without fire, he was pretending to be injured and refusing to play for the whole of August that season. It wouldn't surprise me if Chilwell did the same with his 'injury'.

Drinkwater mentions he arrived injured and it hurt his chances at Chelsea; Chilwell has been ruled out for the weekend.

It’s interesting that fans demand loyalty and passion from our players, but don’t see the irony of how fickle we are ourselves. Players don’t ‘love’ clubs like we do they’re just managing their own careers.

 

You'd think the 2015/16 season would have given that team a free hit in terms of being revered for all time whatever their choices. Instead we’re happy to condemn them for chasing money and more success.

 

I find the booing of Mahrez a bit moronic considering what he achieved for us. Similarly Drinkwater delivered in a team that got us promotion even before 15/16. I know they may have said a few things that to me just reveals that they’re not die hard fans of LCFC like we are.

 

I agree with those who question why Kante is excused. He was the one that left immediately to a club that hadn’t even qualified for the Champions League and was possibly one of the biggest reasons for our immediate slump.

 

I’ll never be able to shout abuse at our 15/16 heroes as some think it is ok to do but, for me, it’s Kante who I remember the least favourably despite his incredible attributes. 

No, I don't think that is the case.  I think that most of us understand our place in the food chain and the fact that if a player is courted by a big club he will leave.  I think that all we ask is that the player conducts himself properly, hence the animosity with Mahrez and the respect for Kante.

 

Thinking back to DD's departure, far from demanding loyalty, I think that most were very pleased to fleece £35m out of Chelsea at the time

We’d just won the league and were in the Champions League in 2016. I’m pretty realistic about player ambition, but we’d just defied the usual norm.

 

All I would have asked is one more season. One season to see where the momentum would take us and how far we’d get in the CL - but no - the team was broken up immediately because of Kante’s decision. 

 

“Knowing our place in the food chain” means that I’m not too bothered about false platitudes when a player decides to go. There is no sincerity in them anyway and the only real difference is that Mahrez spoke his mind whilst Kante isn’t much of a talker.

Whenever I see Danny pop up with comments like he did here I always remember the interview he did when we got promoted below. I know loyalty in football is dead but he genuinely appeared to have his head screwed on more back then and for one reason or another most probably being the victim of his own success he has spiralled out of control mentally. Quite sad really as I will always remember him as a player who significantly contributed towards the best season we have ever had and most likely ever will have.
