Happy New Year all! Excited about the prospect of Eboue, hope he is a Kante type player who will bring us energy and interception from a holding position in midfield. Seems much more of a Rodgers type of player than Biton!

I know nothing about him L7 but watched a video clip and looked a bit of a drama queen which concerned me? He is still a young laddie though. It's the way to do it a mixture of grow your own ie. KT and buying the best potential young talent-get few years out them-accept we're an excellent shop window for the EPL-then move then on with sell on clauses to make a few bob ie. VVD and Wanyama 🍀.

I agree JFP! Wanyama and VVD's success in the Prem will only make buying from us in the future more attractive. I know this isn't ideal but if we could make the most of the inflated market there's a pretty penny to be made and hopefully re-invested in the club!

Agreed not ideal L7 but an excellent business model grounded in market reality. You have to hand it to Dermot Desmond and Peter Lawell et al. I think we have earned a reputation for developing and nurturing young talent and putting them in the shop window at the highest level ie. CL and that is very much Rogers bag as well. Hopefully some will stay long enough to become legends like your namesake! Starting with Dembelle! 🍀.

First impressions of clip I saw was diouf. Hopefully not.

Worryingly I'd agree TTTS 🍀.

hes just a young boy he's still gaining experience, its good to see a player with a bit of fire in his belly, i have seen the footage myself and it just looked like a bit of handbags to me, to compare him with that lowlife scum diouf is a bit over the top especially when the boy hasn't even kicked a ball for us yet.

I certainly hope not James, hoping for a Vieira, Keane type.
