  1. Wages too high!!He aint worth it!!Better off giving Nolan 50k & Carroll 85k a week!!Why do we want to pay a player who might actually contribute so much money!!We only go large on beefburgers on legs & NHS in-patients!!

  2. Just pay it,sign him & we can all forget about the ‘Payet Transfer’.Though im not sure what Mystic Brad will write about on wetpants.Guess he will have to trawl the news sites for another ‘scoop’ 😀

  3. Hope we can get him sorted,he looks a decent player.Cant understand why people moan about paying 11/12m on a 28yr old.We cant just have a team of kids & playmakers will always cost a few quid.He is hardly over the hill at 28.Probably coming into the best years of his career with the experience he has gained.

  4. Not too interested in the fine details to be honest, we should be walking like we’ve been talking really.
    We’re either Big fish Or little fish…..and if we’re little fish, be honest about it!

  5. His weekly wages are cheap if he is a game changer,we need a special star all the best teams have one and Downing isn’t it ,
    At his price he is a third of the cost of anything near that,but little steps,what are Liverpool paying the Milners and Hendersons of this world and you can’t call them super stars
