This wasn't meant to be the case, i could have sworn we had some other stuff, not verified even, that got everyone extremely worked up. Plus it was possibly poorly worded, as a fair amount of 'information' we had actually came from the media or was total guesswork based on your reliable info. Really just glad he seems to be staying and we can get back to the real action soon,
Has the widely held opinion that dier is a shite, overrated, dawdling thug incapable of playing in midfield always been held by many fans or has it come about due to a bit of dubious itk saying he wanted United and dodgy performances in meaningless pre season friendlies. I swear most people considered him significant in our squad (could be very wrong, I certainly think he's a vital cog) and now the tide seems to have changed to a 50-50 split at best. Aka the Kyle walker effect.
I have heard or seen very little to suggest this is the case. Naturally he will prefer one position, but not prepared to play, no chance,
Eric could have made holding on to him a whole lot harder this summer than he seems to have.
