    Alderweireld still open to idea of staying

    Let's hope common sense prevails and we keep him.

    Reminds me of Steeed.

    Nothing like what we saw with Carrick and Berbatov. We're nowhere near that level of interest.

    Player Player watch: Toby Alderweireld

    I don't have a problem with any player wanting the absolute most they can get from the club. It's business, nothing personal. And if Toby really is agitating for a move, where is the buying club? In the past 10-15 years, we've lost our better players when a buying club is clearly in the frame...

    This all seems far too emotive and juvenile. You make them all sound like a bunch of school kids.

    So pissed off that Toby gets sent packing? Are we supposed to think that this has never happened to Poch or Levy before? They're not exactly new to the game. It all sounds like a typical contract negotiation. Who knows how much the goals will have moved since talks began and where we are now...

    Oh I very much doubt Poch is quite that immature. You don't chuck away arguably one of the best CBs in Europe for something so trivial.

    I very much doubt it's as simple as that. Sounds like a rather foolish way to run any kind of business, let alone a football club where large egos are in abundance, an individual's sense of worth is often over inflated, and a bunch of agents are running about the place looking to ramp up earning...

    Would love to see Rose stay.

    Can't help feeling that any issues would be between Toby (or more likely his advisors) and Levy. I doubt he's had any kind of falling out with Poch. I don't think we would have seen him anywhere near the team if things had truly broken down between the two of them. If that's true then the door...

    The managerial merry go round discussion

    Levy to RM: "You can have Poch, but we get Bale and Ronaldo in return. Oh and you have to pay their salaries for three years too."

    Would you change our season for Chelsea's ?

    I put CL qualification above both domestic cups. IMHO securing a top four place is a far harder challenge than winning either the League or FA Cup. 38 games against the top 19 teams in the country, versus five or six games against possibly some much weaker competition, with the bonus of replays...

    Player Watch Player Watch - Lucas Moura

    Poch's love affair with inverted wingers was more of a problem. While it did create space for Rose and KWP to run into, too many times in the first half Lucas and Lamela were running inside into traffic and then giving away possession. It worked much better in the second half as both of our...

    Time for an onfield skipper?

    Don't care whether he's captain or not, but I can't help thinking that we lack a real leader on the pitch. Somebody that will grab every game by the scruff of the neck and drive us forward.
