"Bit of a shame you didn't get a chance under BR to see if you could adapt your game but this move is best for all parties to involve. £15 is a more realistic fee and TBH it was going to be hard to recoup any more than that. Good luck at West Ham and don't come back to haunt us."

"All the best Andy, gutted it didn't work out for you at LFC, I guess the pressure of the price tag along with the injuries didn't help.

Hopefully now we can see some movement on the Henrikh deal now Andy's transfer has gone through. YNWA."

"Let's be honest. It is a good deal for all. We get 15,5 (plus 2 in add-ons) which is a very good price for us (forget what we paid), Andy goes to a team where they play 100% to hus style and WHam get a marquee signing. If we get Mhktaryan for 20m then we almost covered our big signing with this sale"
dan62
19th Jun 2013 15:03
"Good luck AC. at 15.5 + Add on's its a good deal. For those thinking we lost a big, we didn't. Torres was never worth 50m more like 26m maybe. So all we lost were the wages paid, for once we didn't get ripped off, I thought BR may get desperate and sell at 10m"

"News I've been waiting for. But please replace him with someone better. Hopefully we can get Aubemeyang who should want to come.

His lack of movement, pace, skill, makes players around him look worse (if he is not focal point) we are building a team of quick, slick pass and move type players, and AC could never fit in. his value would continue to drop playing for us too.
