    I imagine the move suited all parties, a good servant to the club but we move on.

    Could have become a legend instead of a bell-end.
    In all seriousness - it was a great deal for all concerned.
    Do we miss him? I don't think so. And that is the key barometer.

    He played very well yesterday. No so many blind alleys in his attacking play and very solid/canny defensively.

    Spurs were in his heart, but City were in his wallet.

    I don't know, I get the impression he wouldn't have left if he wasn't rotated with trip missing out on key games.
    That seems to be at theheart of the breakdown between him and Poch

    I believe it was money and an element of wanting to be up north again but not that he fell out with Poch. He played right up until the end, not as often but he played. If Poch falls out with someone they don't play, ever.

    I'm not sure we should be critical of someone who has made a reasonable choice. Prime time for his career, will be playing for title challengers at three times his pay. Who would not take that professional leap. Posted this when he left:

    Well not sure about why he left and hopefully we have someone good lined up but I just wanted to say good luck to Walks. Did his best for us, contributed to our success and is now moving on to a better financial deal (like all of us would) with perhaps professional improvement as well - Pep is no mug.

    We are not loyal to players we can replace with someone better, so why should players be loyal to us when they have a better offer on the table? He is going to make much more money and have a better chance of winning the league. He went about his move in a very dignified way. I completely accept his move and hold him no ill will at all.

    There are 50 million reasons why the move was good for us.

    No hard feelings here, both parties did well out of the deal, which to me makes it feel like it was the right decision.

    The whole interview in The Sunday Times is very good. It shows Walker in good light as a normal humble guy from a poor family who made it in life.

    I'd love it if we won the league and Champions League, just because he said he wanted to win stuff. He's from Sheffield, which is in Yorkshire, and he's moved to Manchester, which is in Lancashire. The North is not a homogenous entity with no history of internal wars, is it?

    it was hard yeh, but 55 million helped

    I think he handed himself well in those months before he left. Went away with us on tour, did his promotional work and said nice things about us. I wish him well except from the games against us.

    I felt we missed him in our first three games when Trippier didn't seem to be playing at full fitness. But generally no, he is a replaceable player and the only reason we got so much money is the crassness of city's chequebook football
