They're the same arguments because I've not been persuaded by your counter arguments which I don't think make any sense. You have a real strange way of writing off Sturridge and his goals and assists but don't use that same measure for the others. Is it because they run around more? You say it needs to be a goal that makes a difference from Sturridge for it to matter but how about team performance? If looking at all their games like they were points accruing;He's still trotting out the same old tired arguments. Boring.
Not arsed about this at all. He's not available very often and has been crap when he's started. Maybe he had 1 or 2 contributions left for us, that's not enough.
He has been a waste of a space for too long, this signals the end of that. A replacement? Well, an improvement in the squad would have been nice, but Sturridge's actual contribution barely needs replacing.
Thanks for the good times Dan but this is long overdue. Good luck.
It makes absolute sense IF somebody better comes in. IF..........The thing that gets me, is that it’s just a loan.
What’s the actual point?, aside from doing the right thing by the player ( which is a positive) I see no upside in letting Sturidge go, is he disruptive like sahko? Is his training ethos questionable?....I mean, to keep coming back from setback after setback must take SOME level of mental fortitude.
I have this sneaking suspicion/ blind hope that we must have something lined up tomorrow.
It just makes absolutely no sense to let him go without replacing him in the squad, with another body, I get 100% the case for not being bothered as his numbers are non existent, but if bobby does get a knock, we are down to players out of position and a kid or a player who has been hampered severely by injury, no matter how inspirational the comeback is.....it just seems very strange....I know we only play one upfront, but wouldn’t it be wise to leave an option for two?
He also has an added unforeseen bonus....he adds pressure to the current ‘first choice’
Dunno.....I’m not on board with this at all....subject to any late transfers in.....both Coutinho and sturidge gone in the same window....that’s a lot of goals ( historically) leaving the club at the same moment.
Quirky point...remember we got them in the same winter window as well....nothing to it....but...just an oddity.
It looks like the Baggies deal is done, it’ll be interesting to see how he gets on.The thing is he should have been getting games here!
Yes he is that good and very different to Firmino!
