He'll be sold in the summer, been a failure there. Dire over both legs and it seems pretty similar to what he has been serving up since joining Barca.

All he wanted was to play at the top level and in the big finals.

I'm not convinced that any of our players would look as great if they weren't in our team.

Can you imagine how disappointed his family must be with him?

What a div. Would've been playing in his 2nd CL final in 3 weeks. Would've had fans singing his name as a legend and not looking at him like he's scum. He's not going to be remembered after he retires, whereas he could've been a superstar here. What a div

In fairness wasn't the move supposedly because his family weren't settled here (that might be BS but it was mentioned at the time). Also without selling him we might not have had the money to bring in the players who got us to the CL finals.

Also I wonder in hindsight if part of the reason we let him go (and he didn't always start when he was here) was because he wasn't such a team player. This side is about attitude and team work and there is no place for egos for me he doesn't fit into that so well.

Oh yeah, I agree with that. He wanted the move though and had he thought we were able to challenge for the biggest trophy in the world I'm sure he would've wanted to stay. 2 CL finals in the 18 months since he left

Whilst I think Phil was a great player for us I also think we're a better more solid side since he's left 2 * CL finals and currently on 94 points in the league with a game to go I think backs up we've stepped up a level.

Possible we might well have done so with him still here but I we'd not have been as robust with him in the side and I think we'd conceded more chances over the course of the season, the "unfashionable midfielders we've played this season has fitted perfectly to how we want to play.

So what you're saying is we should be praising him for leaving the club and enabling us to become one of the best teams in the world.

Thanks for leaving Phil!

21 goals in 74 appearances really isn't a bad return either

Playing in La liga with the two bearded cheating cunts. Anyone could stand in the box (even you Norbs) picking up scraps from those two and bag a goal every other game

I don't think he can stay there though? They don't want him to...alas can't see anyone else wanting him either with the Quatari rumoured to be backing out of PSG.

Seems their sort of player. Forget that he looks weak, can't influence games and will be ridiculously expensive. He'll rule us and is a marquee signing.

But do we get a percentage of the sell on fee? I think we should include something like that as a fallback if they sell within a short period of time

fairly sure we get 4.5 mill for each 25 games up to 100, he reached 50 so lost out on 9.

We got 4.5 for them qualifying for CL last season and this year.

We would have got 4.5 if they won the CL last season or this year, oh dear.

But selling him and bringing in other players have indirectly resulted in more money from our CL run.

Whilst it’s foolish to take things at face value, one or two low key signings is insufficient.
