He'd probably still get 15+ if he signed now.

He wouldn't score that many. He doesn't do well in physical matches. Flair players do not work in the Championship.

Agreed. That there aren't many "flair" players succeeding in the Championship is because there aren't many of them even playing in the Championship.

Plus, there are plenty of young skilled players who have made their mark in the Championship, but most of them get snapped up by PL clubs before they even start racking up big stats - look at Zaha, Redmond, Dele Alli or AOC (the latter two got signed straight from League One) as four quick examples.

Ben Arfa would be s*** in the Championship. He was in the Premiership once defenders realised that he does the same thing every time <laugh>.

We need more creativity <neg>

I'd be happy with Shelvey and Diame in CM, would like to see a creative center mid in then a proper #10 come in.

I'd love to see us swap Colback with anyone willing to give us anything in exchange.

Rather see us sign a young tenacious midfielder. This kid who is playing CM for Preston tonight, Pearson I think, looks canny.

I'd pay someone to take Colback off our hands.
It’s the noise, the passion, the feeling of belonging, the pride in your city.

Woeful again today. Seriously he'd get a 0/10 rating from me. Utter garbage.

Ive never got this notion that "flair" players dont work at this level.

If the "physical" style was such a good counter to flair players, why do we not see "physical" play at the top level?

Load of bollocks

I imagine he's on big wages. In truth Liverpool wrecked him by continually rushing him back from injuries as they were pretty reliant on him.
