This. I rather have him as a winger to back-up for ASM/Miggy than Atsu but that's not saying much. Murphy reminds me a bit like Scott Sinclair who excelled at Championship level and SPL level were he scored like 20+ goals at Celtic one season and looked like Henry in his prime.. just goes to show the level of quality in the Scottish Premier League <run> :bandit: but at Premier League level apart from the season were Swansea did well and he got his move to Man City, at Villa he didn't do much and had fitness/injury issues.

My point is.. Murphy would do well up there with Gerrard coaching him and helping him to develop his overall game. He'll probably look like Henry in his prime too with the standard of defending in that league <laugh>

But yeah if he isn't going to be in match day squads and if we don't see a future for him just sell him and get a striker/winger on loan who can cover both positions? Get rid of Saviet, Aarons, Lazar, Atsu, etc.. all the deadwood must go even if we terminate contracts and let them go on freebies better than letting them rot in the reserves <ok>
It must be at least slightly uplifting for a player to play for Rangers or Celtic as you know you're going to be comfortably at the top of the table, you'll get a few European matches and chances are you'll win something. Fair enough, lifting the f***ing Tunnock's Teacake Trophy or whatever it's called might not be the same as winning the FA Cup, but it must be a confidence booster. I'm not sure how much it does for your overall game, but if I was a player struggling to get into a PL side and had the choice between Celtic/Rangers or somewhere like Derby or Sheffield Wednesday, I'd be heading to Glasgow!

Edit: I'm getting my cups mixed up. I'm thinking of the Tunnock's Caramel Wafer Challenge Cup which is for teams below SPL level and randomly includes two guest teams from the rest of the UK.
Can we enter? <awe>

Surely this is just his agent trying to strike up interest, can’t see it personally. If we do get another striker surely someone else is funding transfers :bandit:

Has anyone ever actually seen Mike Ashley and MBS in the same room?

Well Spurs and Roma are interested so that's us out <laugh>

He's only got one year left on his contract, 26 years old, 11 in 26 last season, 17 in 35 season before (in the league) so would be quality.

While Roma are the more attractive, they don't have the same financial muscle as we have. Plus, they've signed a number of premier League rejects.

It wasn't so long ago that we couldn't compete financially with Bournemouth or Burnley (according to MA).

If this is to be believed along with the rumours we are back in for soumare, i think this says Ashley is very confident the takeover will go through. If it doesn't then expect a few season of austerity <laugh>

Was horribly abstract when using the royal "we", but I meant the premier League clubs. So yeah we're not signing him 😂

Won't need austerity when we're competing in the Champions League!

It's safe to say we're no worse off after that departure <laugh>

Never really got a chance here so hard to know if he's any good.

Only if it frees up space and we replace him with a striker.

He was one i was fairly excited about when we signed as he looked dangerous for Mainz.

As posters above said never really hit the ground for us, I think at the start the language thing really affected him, as Rafa is a stickler for players understanding the system so he probably felt he wasn't up to speed with what he wanted for him, of course the form of Perez,Miggy and Rondon probably didn't help either.

With Bruce again it might have just been the case of Joelinton getting up to speed more with what Bruce wanted and showing more in training.

Similar to Lejuene i hope he goes out and shows what he is capable of and gives food for thought next season

Do need a striker now, though. Probably more than we need a CB....

I don't want to be cynical but he was signed at the same time as Ki Sung-Yueng, my thought was that it was Ashley wanting to break into the Asian market with some recognised signings. Sorry he never really had a chance to shine here but I'm sure a less dysfunctional club will suit him better.
