40-50.000.000. Of he goes. IMHO
Only my opinion but I think we'd take less than that now all things considered. The interest that was being shown in the Summer was non existent in January. I don't see him leaving for a lesser club unless they throw a lot of money at him, so perhaps his outburst and injuries have now worked in our favour as far as keeping him is concerned.

My dream is for us to land Sessegnon and then work out a cash plus shaw deal with united.

Unless he recaptures some of last season's form keeping him seems less ideal now. He has shifted into the gray area Dembele occupied for a lot of the first half of the season where you can see sparks but looks a shell of himself. Hopefully, like Dembele, he'll put it all back together soon.

Do knee injuries generally rob players of pace? I thought that unless it's a complete tear, which I understand it wasn't in Rose's case, MCL injuries don't generally cause that problem - I thought that hamstring injuries are the key ones for pace.

Happy to be corrected.

So some are writing off a player who has not had a preseason and has been out injured for the better part of a year... Amazing.

Give him some minutes let him help the team to achieve top 4.... Come back for pre-season and fight for a starting place with the rest of the team.

Its so obvious that all he needs is match fitness/sharpness. This comes with game time. Glad Poch sees it.

Not seen anyone writing him off, just expressing concern.

Would absolutely love to keep him, he doesn’t look 100% fit but I'm sure if he goes through pre season he will get very close to the player he was.

Think I'm right in saying he is our longest serving player and the only one left who was signed under Jol/Comolli. A player who has been on a real journey with us, I'll always love Danny and would love to win a trophy or two with him.

There are those who feel he is a shadow of his former self.. I just think that its way too soon to draw that conclusion.

Some minutes and the odd game and he will be fine.

At the moment he is. Like I said in a previous post he looks this far to have lost a yard of pace, hopefully he'll get that back because I think it's one of the only things that sets him apart from a lot of ordinary full backs.

For me, on this seasons form, Ben Davies is the best left back in the Premier League..

With Danny Rose back it his best we would have the best two in the league

Crazy really
