    On the contrary I think they are actually preparing for it now. Shipping off players they believe they may lose if they get the drop is a sign of a team accepting its fate.

    It is odd though, hire a new manager, play more aggressively, first league win since early November - but as you say, shipping off players. Probably not surprising that team, fans, and management are not all of the same mind.

    I like the look of Robertson, cheeky bid in the summer!

    He has been very impressive in the front line for Brazil. Since Tite has come in they have morphed back into a team the majority of us would associate with actual Brazilian football, and while there are a few reasons for that having an actual striker who can play football rather than the useless lumps they gone to in recent years is a big part of that. Obviously when you are playing alongside Neymar and Coutinho there is a lot of quality all ready there, but he has fitted in seemlesly alongside them, and played in a way that has allowed them to thrive as well, and that provides an indication of what he may be able to do at City.

    It will be interesting to see whether the club and player rebuild bridges enough for him to play for them again this season and try to get them out of the mess they're in, with a view to a more amicable parting of the ways in the summer.

    They will for the next 3-4 months, then it's going to start again for Payet.

    So Berahino finally managed to get away from pulis.
    Good for him.
    It's a shame his last two seasons have been wasted.
    2 years ago, when spurs, tried to sign him, we also could have done with him.

    Good move for Stoke on the face of it. Will be interesting to see if he can recapture his best form. Pulis' treatment of him likely cost the Baggies £12-15m on the fee.

    Correct, but by all accounts the lads attitude stank the place out, so has been hardly playing in the last couple of years.
    Nice to see managers getting more control rather than players

    But at what cost in this case?
    Didn't help club or player that pulis blocked a move two summers in a row.

    Always have...the general hypocrisy of it all is funny though.

    Player wants to leave...scum of the earth.
    Club wants to sell player...yeah, not good enough, get rid.

    Deulofeu from Everton to AC Milan on loan.

    Bit of a strange one that, seems unfancied by Koeman for some reason, but one of their better players, I'd have thought.

    Hull have accepted Burnley's 10 million pounds bid for Snodgrass. Very strange, they still have a chance to stave off relegation, they've got a very promising manager but are selling two of their best players midway through season.

    Snodgrass isnt a world beater, but he seems to be to be better than a player destined to bounce from relegation contender to relegation contender. That's now Norwich, Hull and Burnley

    Robbie Brady is also said to be on his way back to PL after Crystal Palace reportedly had a 9 million pounds bid accepted for him. Like Snodgrass, another extremely useful player to have in relegation battle, both are too good for Championship anyway.

    Yeah very odd direction of career you'd expect some of the likes of WBA or Stoke could do with him.
