Welcome Moussa Sissoko

Really for me it's just been the position change. When he was lining up in advanced roles it just wasn't working. He is a simple player like you say. He isn't going to receive the ball near the corner flag stationary and beat a few guys. Hes kinda clumsy.

Now though he is asked to use his size to retrieve the ball and drive forward to feed attackers... This he is good at!

Another thing I have noticed is I think Poch has told him not to play like Winks, or Dembele, allowing players to come to them before passing. Sissoko seems to have been told to pass in space. Again this suits him.

I think the team he is in now helps massively. He seems like a guy who loved the challenge of being good enough. He was a bit of a shoe in at Newcastle (to my knowledge).

He needs a goal so badly as he is getting in advanced positions now and looking for passes, as his shooting confidence is gone.

I've slagged him no end, so humble pie for me and fair fucks to him!
I think we all have given him some stick, although we gave hime a lot more time than the lost boys in Neverland who wanted him sold 5 minutes after we bought him and were in the Poch Out mob the day that Dutch twat Van Gob swerved us. It's good to see him playing like we thought he could, if he gets anywhere near the player he was for France in the 2014 World Cup I will be a happy bunny. I'm happy enough with how he is playing now but I think he has a lot more to offer.

Yeah World Cup is where we saw the potential I guess. To be honest I think he is nearly there!

Lots of space to play in at that world cup.... if we have pace in our team then he gets more in the middle as the play is stretched...

He does need confidence tho and a goal in the cup final, against the Chavz to put us 3-0 up with an hour gone may just be enough...

He reminds me of YaYa Toure......seems to lope around the pitch slightly awkwardly but also deceptively quickly. Breaks up play well now jas a pass in him, just needs to add goals.

If he starts scoring like Yaya then we would have an extra goal threat flip sake to add to Kane, Son, Alli, Eriksen, Moura and Aurier apparently!

Not in the same league yet. Yaya was skilful as fuxk and was always 9n thenrogjt place anyt rhe right time.

I do understand what you mean by style though. Effortless and Unstopable workrate and looks like not a single fuck is available.

Has there been anything official about the extent of his injury? He said on twitter that he'd be back soon, but that's it, and all the coverage has understandably been about Harry

Not that I know of. I'm guessing at least a couple of weeks but I have seen (and had it happen to myself) people be unable to play on and be alright (able to jog/run at 50-80%) in a few days and be able to play in the the next week or so. Given how much he has played I would guess his recuperation powers are above average, even for a pro athlete.

'Muscle strain' I don't know if that translates into 'pulled a hamstring' or not. He tried to run it off, but couldn't so maybe it's not too bad?

It's not a tear. But it's the same thing, maybe a little less severe.

Fucking whopper it appears!!


Poch said they will assess him, and that the Fulham game may come just a bit too soon. But he's expected to be involved thereafter.




too much??:D
Yes.....too much.

Can James Burford be trusted?

The guy is a beast of a footballer. he just needed the right manager to coax it out of him.

i am sure he will be in the nominations for player of the year along with Sonny and perhaps Vertonghen.Had a breakout season for us when really we all wanted him gone last summer if we are honest.The heart he has shown and rewarded Poch with is incredible under those circumstances.

It's just ridiculous..... I hadnt met a Yid who had a good word to say about him. Fraud, biggest 30 million quid joke in football, is he George Weahs cousin?

I wouldnt pick a team without him in it now.

I always said he lacks ability but thats not his fault.....His effort and work ethic alone made him have a place in the squad for me.

While his skills may be lacking his motor is non-stop. When he is determined he is a bit like Mousa-very hard to knock off the ball. If only he had a bit more ability. He could be world class. Then again he probably wouldn't be playing for us.

I agree with what you guys are saying.

And I keep harping on this. If he can score a goal, that confidence gained will take him up another gear or two.

Shame he just lacks the confidence,he needs an "any given sunday...go to the buick" pep talk.
Shame because he has the lungs and limbs to break so quickly but strangely enough defenders will just show him the goal and stay with a runner such is his goal scoring prowess.The day he puts one away maybe a whole new world of possibilities will open up to him.

Imagine a hybrid...... in fact give him 20% of The mooses ability and he would be 100 mill if any cunts money.
