why stop there I heard Bertrand wants one last crack of the whip.Once we have secured his signature I would like us to pursue his team mate Shane long
Then there will be no stopping us, I can practically hear liverpool , city and chelsea quaking in their boots
Some south coast journos saying that there are still details to work out. But that's fairly common, both final details and that the club that sells sends out messages to make it look like he cost more than he did.17m + add-ons deal agreed according to some
He can do the job. That's a vast improvement to what we have. All great teams have players that are capable,without being world beaters and wouldn't make there greatest ever 11.I think this fella is one of those,lets give him a chance. From the minute he's announced,i will get behind him.I don't think there's anyway he will be a flop for us. At the very least I'd expect him to be Scott Parker level, which would be more than adequate right now considering we have nothing else other than Winks out of position.

Remember last summer when the Lyon president came out and said that we would not get Ndombele for less than 70 mil or something like that the day before we signed him?
Ended up costing us 46 mil + bonuses.
Wanyama, Palacios, Parker....none of them world beaters but they all made us a lot betterIs he a world-beater ? No
But he plays in a position where we need someone just like him. He'll need to be a bit more disciplined then at Southampton but it'll finally allow us to play 4-3-3 and hopefully if we ship Aurier out , it'll be the end of Winks and Sissoko as our first choice Midfield.
Wanyama was pretty average until he came to Spurs , Hojbjerg we're getting for a decent price and a decent age. Solid signing.
