    Previously his issues always seemed to revolve around not being played. Past that I think he's always had a good attitude.

    I remember when he was asked to train with the u23's. He started a match for them and put in the laziest performance I have ever seen. Think he was pulled before half time.

    Compare that to Romeu when he lost his place and asked to play with the U23's so he could stay fit, and then of course fought and won his place back.

    This is the only problem I've had with Boufal really. Felt like he thought he deserved to be handed a place on a silver platter.

    I wonder if his loan spells where he's had to fight for his place have helped him mature a bit in that respect. He's still young. Also Ralph is a man manager so if Boufal is in his plans he won't be ignoring him.

    I certainly get the feeling he is willing to fight for his place from that tweet.

    Fraser Forster off to Celtic then - thank god!

    Hoping it is permanent rather than a loan

    Can only see it being a loan, still good news though.

    It is indeed a loan. Hope a few more sales and loans to follow

    Just happy to see Fraser on the path to rebuilding his career personally, hope the big man becomes a hero again there.

    Apparently Celta Vigo, Lyon and Roma have all come in for Lemina.

    We want to avoid giving leasing him to Vigo, or any cheap skates.

    Nah, they are far too Mickey Mouse and I don't think Mario sees himself in Div 3....

    Yeah, a new start could do wonders for him. He was never as good as people thought he was initially. But I also feel like he was either hurt or lost all of his confidence because those last few games were really terrible.

    He's not a bad GK when he's right.

    Scored at Wembley on Boxing Day, when Spurs put five past us.

    Met him after the Liverpool game, seemed a bit subdued.

    He was a top keeper, lost confidence, hope he can regain his form.

    Sad to see him leave but was surplus to requirements this season.

    The solution for Elyounoussi or any other player lacking confidence is easy - identify the player in the opposition that the fans hate the most (a Dejan Lovren would do nicely), then first chance you get, take him out with an `enthusiastic` challenge. Must send him crashing to the turf, or even better, the track. Extra points for crashing into advertsing hoardings, photographers, or the opposition bench. Hey presto - instant adulation!

    I still think an in form Forster is better than McCarthy and gunn. If he could get back to where he was before his knee injury he will do well for Celtic and maybe we can sell?

    I don't, not with our back line, too many shots coming in. Gunn has some short comings, but he pulls off some lovely reaction saves and gets down quick.............usually.

    Forster is a very good goalkeeper who makes fine short range reaction saves but couldn't save a long range effort by my nan if she was kicking a beach ball.
