Bassong to hoy in transfer request?

It seems Seb Bassong is ready to take the initiative with regards to a move to either Man City or Spurs. Our French Under 21 international looks eager to force the club to sell him to either of those clubs.

Our own opinion? Take the 10m and run. The money being bandied about for an unproven yet potentially very talented player is ridiculous. A further 10m in the coffers, along with the near 9m for Martins, would start making the club a more attractive proposition for buyers as well.

Where does this money go??? Into the club or into Ashleys Pockets!!!

Into his pockets. Maybe if he got that 10mil for bassong then strengtened the team & made it a more attractive proposition to buyers he might sell the club.

hopefully ashleys pocket, he deserves it for the pleasure of taking down you lot. thankyou mike ashley, you deserve a knighthood. small club, small minded 'fans', small ambition, if you are such a big club, why doesnt anybody want you, exactly where you deserve to be.

ashley's pocket money, i reckon he'll keep selling til the transfer window closes then put the club into administration - coz nobody wants to buy the club from the cockney pirates.

the sad thing for your club is that I can see the monet generated from the sales of Bassong and Martins, going straight into paying the bills and not going to rebuilding the club. I think that unless you are sold very soon, regaining your Prem place will be almost impossible next season.

any bets he only ends up goin for a severely reduced 7m in the end just like Given did !!

Beye, Martins and Bassong - all sales just to give us the working capital to keep trading.
