So just saw the rumor that we refused to pay 12.5M for Abdoulaye Toure and instead asked for a loan.

Seriously?

Are there CM/DM I'd prefer... sure (Sangare notably) but a 25 year old 3 year starter in Ligue 1, who can play either the Rice or Noble role, is physical, energetic and has solid pace... that's an easy buy for 12.5M. He'll fill a need here and hold value given his age.

I was joking early doors about just getting Randolph and Allen.

Annoying other clubs with our antics has made it come to this.

And as for Payet. Why not. Can't be worse than the present circus.

30 million for 4 players when the top clubs pay nearly three times that for one.

No UK club has paid £90m for a player
Only Liverpool and Man U have paid more than £70m

When was the last transfer window where we failed to sign an outfield player?

Payet would still probably be the most talented player in the team if he popped over for six months.

The way Sully behaves in the transfer market is nothing short of tragic

I’ve seen Payet play this season and he’s been atrocious .................atrociously good, the guys still got it, banging in goals, winning matches. Sullivan didn’t want him here because he likes to feel superior to his staff, I think it’s called LITTLE MAN SYNDROME

Had a check of Ex’s Twitter. Apparently we offered £12m for Cash and Forest want £18m.

£18m may be a bit steep, but this about to be another club Dildo Dave is about to f*** right off with his conduct
