  1. I don’t rate this lad, seen him about 20 times over the last few years – very average and I don’t think he is the player to make a difference at RB

  2. Looking again at the final league table and knowing we will not be benefitting again from the likes of Chelsea, Liverpool, MU and MC having less than sterling seasons, we are going to need to do some very smart. Transfer business just to keep up, never mind securing CL places…and I doubt picking up freebies is going to hack it

  3. He is a freebie because he hasn’t signed a new contract that was offered to him.Since when have we been so amazing we aint good enough to sign players from PSG???
    There’s a big difference between a player being released on a freebie & one who’s contract has run down & he doesn’t want to sign a new one,even you must understand that wise man of C&H.Do you think that no one will want Berahino next summer if he is still at WBA because his contract ran down & he is a freebie?? Lol
