Feel sorry for the fella in all honesty (to an extent). Another case of Spurs fans ripping into him because he's not played as expected. He didn't ask to be sold for £30m.

Whilst he's a yid, we should just give the guy some respect.
He dis a couple of really good things when he came on yesterday. What I could not work out though was what position he was supposed to be playing in. I thought he would be on the right but he seemed to drift into the centre

We need to clear his wages off the books so we can give it someone better. Although he did ok yesterday did you see that anytime he got the ball at his feet while stationary and opp players in front of him he looked panicked. No confidence at all and just looked to off load it. We need better than him on the bench.

Seems like we are stuck with him so best get behind him. He is frustrating because it is clear in flashes there is a really good player lurking somewhere inside there but he seems to play with no confidence whatsoever. He just needs to be told to be bolder.

Think we should stop using him for a few matches so he can only focus on bringing it to training and that's it. Rather get other players going for the season.

Support the man ffs!!
I don't agree with all the trolling he's getting on twitter or with booing or anything like that but I for one will be very happy when we sell this guy.
I Support the team but this guy is a terrible footballer (and I've seen many in all my years supporting this club). He's up there with Dozzell for me. He has nothing to offer.

His ball over the top to Eriksen was sublime. Thought we were more dangerous when he came on than when Sonny was on the pitch.

He had his best game that I can recall in awhile in the few minute he played. My biggest issue with his game is his touch. He just doesn't see to have that neat and tidy reception of the ball that is necessary to keep us in rhythm.

As much as I want to see Sissoko sold and never play for us again - and I really want that to happen - you are right that it's not Sissoko's fault we signed him. Really the blame lies squarely on Poch and Levy (and moreso on Poch, because he keeps playing Sissoko even now)... but to quote Johnny Fontane from The Godfather novel:

But you can't get sore at him. It's like getting sore at God.
Yep, on reflection Poch should be bearing the brunt of this, not Sissoko himself. Even if he does need to be shifted pronto.

It's the same with Lamela. People slag them off because of the price we paid for them despite them having no control over that. Sissoko has been truly terrible, but if he's still here come September 1st, all we can do is hope he offers some value to our squad. The fans that go out of their way to try to make the guy feel like shit are truly assholes. Unless he's disrespecting the club, he deserves some respect.

He is like a half decent sub at best for us, with all hoping its one of his more measured performances. Love to see his explosive play for us like he has for frqnce

Onda Cero informs that the Mestalla club handles alternatives before the possibility of leaving Medrán

Valencia would have asked for the Frenchman Moussa Sissoko. The last days of the market can be very busy in Valencia CF as, in the words of his coach, Marcelino Garcia Toral , four to six starts are expected in addition to the arrivals of Gonçalo Guedes, Andreas Pereira and possibly a striker.

One such departure may be that of midfielder Álvaro Medrán , for whom the Alavés de Vitoria has shown interest . If you exit Medrán the Valenciawould be launched to the market by another player in midfield and in that sense, as reported by Onda Cero Valencia, the whole of Mestalla he would have asked about the situation of French midfielder Moussa Sissoko .

This player militates in Tottenham , where he came from Newcastle . It is an absolute international by France , in fact it made an excellent European Championship last summer. He is a very physical player who can play in right wing as he has a lot of travel.

I think my translation button is drunk. But, I think it basically says Valencia may be interested in Sissoko. Was this posted?
