I think he's probably an alright bloke Cucu. That said I gave him absolute dogs abuse and feel good about it.

I hope Winstanley and all those other twats blinded by money, looked at the shit Cucu was getting and are shifting uncomfortably in their seats in the knowledge that they contributed to Marc getting that level of stick

I gave him so much shit today as most did.

But he looked so broken and upset, I kind of feel a tiny bit guilty about the fortunes of a man I used to love.
Not me. He forced the move, refused to play/train and was one year into a five year contract.

We rinsed Chelsea, £65m is outrageous for one good season at PL level on a LEFT BACK. He doesn’t even have HGP status, which inflates the price.

We rinsed them, Cucurella got his move (albeit not the one he wanted), we got a great replacement for a fraction of the price, and Tony Bloom is laughing his head off.

He didn’t look a £5m player today, let alone £65m. He was absolutely shell shocked by the reaction and being embarrassed by Solly March for 60 of the longest minutes of his life.

He had a ‘’mare, frankly.

Interesting times for the Brighton 'business model' with Cucurella and Bissouma being stellar players for us, sold at a large profit to the elite clubs only to struggle early doors. Maybe big fish in smaller ponds, or to paraphrase this weeks discussion, big goldfish in nicer water. is a fair point but one that might drive down perceived value in the current squad?
Had a Spurs fan friend texting me tonight about how bad Biss is and who they might loan him out to / can we send the bit of Biss they bought but has clearly been left behind at the Amex etc. Big time Charlie’s expect a lot more from him than they’ve seen that’s for sure.

Unlike Cucurella, I’d have Bissouma back tomorrow. Cucu might wonder why he got such a bad reception compared to Biss. The difference being, one gave us years of good service so genuinely difficult to complain about him moving on. Would be the same with Trossard in my opinion though hopefully we won’t have to find out for a long time.
