    Not a chance, even though he is excelling, you would not realise his true worth yet. He has a 3 year contract, so why would the club selling him in January?

    Well I think there will be a few clubs chasing him in February if he continues to improve. I hope he stays, as it will cost a fortune to get someone else like him.

    I think everyone's getting a bit ahead of themselves, he's obviously very good, but he's only played seven Premier League games so far, talk of £30m fees is way over the top.

    But my suggestion is "if he keeps on improving what will he be worth in January" OLM. A hypothetical question yes, but I think a lot of clubs will be watching his development from now to January.

    We'll find out in January, for now he's just a young lad who seems to be a tidy player, he's obviously worth more than we paid for him, but speculating about daft fees is rather pointless.

    I'm not sure we should be offering players who are already on 3 year contracts contracts after 7 game.

    Comparing him to Shaws price is a but silly. He had played 60 Premier League games.

    Agreed. Easily worth £25m but £30m is perhaps pushing it a bit.

    The only way I can see that happening is if we change our name.

    Don't get it. Injured/slight knock/tactical/match up?

    Seemingly outstanding on Saturday.


    If it does one thing it will bring him back down to earth and spur him to work harder at his game.

    Guess I will watch the Ireland game.

    BBC website says that it's tactical.

    Must be going more defensive.

    Strange one replacing a EPL player with a Championship one.

    Nonsense decision.

    Can't be tactical for Whittakers defensive skills considering he doesn't really have any, especially out of position.

    Backwards Scottish mentality again of trusting experience over ability.

    Play players in games like this and they will have experience AND ability.

    I agree, but he is doing a better job than Levin and Burley, which isn't saying much.
