Completely, he probably asked Arnie about it, he said something like 'well sounds interesting' brother goes out there to generate bidding war. Agents are all the same tripe, family or not.

I said on here 10/12 games back that he hadn’t looked happy this season and maybe we’d already had the best of him.
There’s no half measures in his brothers statement he’s 30 in a couple of months, take 45 mil and get rid.
And ask him nevrf to kiss the Fuvking badge again.

I think if Solanke are Diaz going for nigh on £20m then even £45m is too low. He is good for another couple of years and in a top team would score 20+ goals a season. That is high value and in the inflated UK market would put him £50m+

You look at it, who could we even get for £50m? Its not just finding the player, its convincing them to join a mid table team.

Club's responded saying he has a contract & isn't for sale.

Let's see how long that lasts.

Its the right response, no need to smooth the way out the door. If a club wants him that badly they are going to have to pay big bucks.

No, it's not. Means nothing. No need to respond. If he wants to go, he'll go. End of.

This could just as easily be a ploy to say to chelski or such like that he wants out , “come and get me”.

So we develop him as a player (we clearly have) and he wants out? If that’s true, I hope we just get as much as possible as he won’t be easy to replace. Why all the badge kissing bks if he isn’t a loyal person?

He’ll be gone by next weekend I reckon. Will play on Saturday and that will be it.

I think Stoke get a percentage of any sell-on fee, is that right?

Stoke get 20% so taking £35m is financial stupidity, he is contracted, we do not have to sell him, clubs will queue up - see where the bidding gets to and take the best offer.

Also saw that Balbuena is now out for another 6-8 weeks after an op on his knee.

This 100%.

If he wants out let him go but not at £35m.

Missed that bit - got in the car midway through HR's bit.

Convenient bks presumably; #27 played us the same way.

Be interesting to see if he makes the squad tomorrow- typically our attacking options are limited again, so presumably Perez to start with AC & Antonio the other options.

If he goes he's a minor footnote - we've had & sold far better over the years.

And his tattoos are still st.

Excellent, does this mean I can do the same to Ben's Arnie shirt as we did to Payets? ( Any excuse to show it again)

hehe

Maybe round in circles.

Saw that the FA Cup game's shifted - doubt that they will be showing it at Geneva airport so hopefully someone will have a BT account.

BT account doesn't work abroad I'm afraid. Just google reddit soccer streams and you'll find a link.
