The one player we give away was our best attacking player IMO. £40m it should have been. Contract length will be mentioned although these days that’s not a deciding factor for forwards.

I would like to say "it won't last" but we are coming into warmer weather and isn't it the hive view that he generally only performs in Autumn and Spring?
Potter spent his time here playing him in different positions and never got the best out of him. I don’t believe it had anything to do with the time of year.

To be honest RDZ should have done better to keep him. Poor man management IMO

Keeping him was probably borderline impossible. RDZ probably did what he had to do in that regard.

Feeding the scavenging hyenas that are the press with the whole debacle was less clever as it put the club in a really shit situation at the negotiation table, but in the end it turned out great for Trossard, good for Arsenal and ok for Brighton.

How long do you think RDZ actually had with him? He arrived at the end of September and within a month or so, he was off for the World Cup. When he came back, it was obvious he wasn’t trying = see Charlton.
What exactly do you think RDZ could have done? Remember he has no influence on contracts and wages.
Arsenal would’ve doubled his wages, and top of the table.

The Champions-elect come calling for a player who’s been with the club for 4-years and wants a new challenge. Poor man-management?
Selling in January wasn’t the time IMO.

Also says any player can down tools and force through a move.

Yeah Caicedo looks great in that Arsenal midfield after his transfer request.

Trossard’s was the best outcome all round.
I just don’t think selling your top scorer in January is a great move IMO. Whatever ‘happened’ surely could have been fixed

That’s patently not true because Caicedo (and his representatives) were put firmly back in their box when they looked like trying to holster their hammers. We all have opinions but the only ones that matter are the club’s and they reckon it was the perfect time to extract up to £27m quid for a player with 6 months + an option left on his contract, who wanted a move and was being usurped by a red hot Japanese winger and an Irish centre forward.

Really? Maybe he'd seen enough of Trossard to know a move was the right thing for all parties. Therefore GOOD man management. Let's face it, we're doing alright without him!

If Trossard was still here , who would drop out the first 11? Ferguson . Mitoma, March ?

When he was here he was up and down , why he was like that is unimportant, yes he was brilliant on the good days but anonymous in many games. Caicedo is far more important to the team and we kept him.

The club was forced into a position by the player and yes we could we have got more possibly but we didn't in the same way we sold Cucurella for farmore than some clubs thought he was worth. Its the football market. To be fair I am more concerned we only got £13million for Burn.

Yes he is playing like a £40-£50 million player but he he has moved the best team in the PL , not surprising that he looks very good is it.

Basically agree - but have no idea what holstering hammers is all about!
