Sanchez has been fine for 40m as has Sissoko for 30m so not all our big money signings have turned out bad. Too early to say about Ndombele but I'm not sure why attitude comes up whenever there's anything negative on a player. I think he's just struggling with the physical side of our league and the volume of games. That doesn't mean he must have a bad attitude. We just need to show him patience. That's why Poch said it could be 2 years before we see the best of him to take pressure off him early on.
I’d loved to have seen Levy’s face after spending £60 million (that’s £60 million) on him and then hearing Poch say that! 😂

He has played barely a 1000 minutes, and completed one whole game.

Thats about 3 hours of football a month/ one half of a football match a week ... yet he is 'struggling with volume of games' (Just writing that made me laugh.) Also no one pays 55m and 10s of thousands a week in the hope he comes good in 2 years. Poch was speaking nonsense.

Suddenly i dont so feel bad about my own increasingly lacklustre gym attendance figures though.

Where or who's this 'bad attitude' stuff coming from?

I have faith in Ndombele. For me he has great talent and is not physically 100%. The groin is a tough one to heal and one I think that can easily get reinjured. I appreciate quality football was quality players so I am with NDombele as long as he doesn't stuff himself with cream cakes

Not worried about him at all, he will be great for us once he ups his fitness and gets healthy. Modric was shit at Madrid when he first joined because he didn't work on fitness in summer, Ndombele already had some great games for us even with stamina issues. Sissoko will also help him settle sooner.

He has only played so little because of injuries and not being considered up to fitness to start certain games. I imagine he struggled with the intensity of Poch's training sessions early on and feels reluctant to push his body after his latest injury.

I'm certain Jose has done this previously to Eden Hazard. Calling him out publicly for his work rate and defensive output.

Think he recognises the ability of TN and is trying to push him up a level.

Wouldn't surprise me to see Tanguy dominating a game for a full 90 shortly, hopefully today.

Jesus give the lad break it must be so difficult being a teenager in this day and age, the poor guy is probably still just trying to work out his gender or lack thereof. Sorry for misgendering zhe if that is the case.

Can someone translate the quoted post for me. I only speak and read English.
To educate others in how to self diagnose?
He is going to wear a hospital today. All of you remember this posting yahoo?

It makes perfect sense.
I’ll give it a go :

I say old chap, I think N’Dombele is going to play rather well today and give a comprehensive lesson in midfield play.

And what’s more, I would like everyone to remember this prediction and give me the credit it so rightly deserves amid all the hullabaloo surrounding said players supposed rather rotten attitude and application issues.

A terrible, terrible business.
Your youthful optimism will soon be eroded, get out while you still can...
