    I'll be honest, i've never really rated Lovren - perhaps i'm too harsh on him.

    Whether we get our 30m for Sakho is debatable, but i do think if we stuck Lovren on the market we'd struggle to shift him
    We struggled to shift Sakho too. I'm fairly confident we'd have sold if a good offer had been forthcoming and Sakho clearly didn't really fancy any of the loan offers he was getting. Just at the end of the window we managed to get him out the door - to a team struggling badly at the foot of the table.

    As I said, I think it's quite possible that if Lovren and Sakho's roles had been reversed the situation would not be hugely different - Lovren would look better elsewhere and we'd quite possibly still be looking for a new partner for Matip.

    I might be imagining this - but was there talk that WBA ofered 20m for him but he turned them down?

    Paper talk Obs but i can't even remember if that was a rumour

    You're right, I just can't face him inevitably turning into Franco Baresi on Steroids twice a season.

    Sakho to Benteke, Benteke to Sakho, Sakho with the bicycle kick into the top corner to round off his hatrick

    Reviving a thread that could have died last Sunday- by commenting on it- isn't the best way around putting it to bed, is it?

    ...considering the context of your post, you've ironically made it a topic again.

    Has this been done to death? Evidently not, if it were up to you...
    Your post contained three sentences. Each one ended with a question mark. And you criticize me for commenting on it!!!!!

    Isn't much though "talk", "reported", "rumoured", the safest assumption to make is we won't know how much he'll fetch until he's signed (IF he does) although usually when you see contract talks are beginning after fees are accepted they usually give a clearer picture.

    I'd love to be a fly on the wall in some of the offices of the managers when they read some of these rumours, in fact I'd like someone to ask them what they make of a lot of the rumours.
    People will believe what they want to believe

    I still think we need a top class centre back no matter what we do. Given a straight choice between Lovren and Sakho I'd choose Sakho every day. But I understand why that won't happen.
