Hope his career tanks from this moment on wards, gone are the days when you would give your left arm to play for your local team.

If he wasn't willing to accept 20 grand a week then fcuk him.

Fans always have a very difficult relationship with player wages. We’re desperate for good players, cheer them to the rafters, then say they shouldn’t try to get the best deal they can.

We we sign a player, we never say he should’ve stayed at his old club.

It has much to do with the game not being viewed as the business that it is. We wouldn’t begrudge an employee in any other industry from maximizing his earnings. We shouldn’t begrudge football players, without whose labor the game doesn’t exist, doing the same.

Given our transfer budget will be almost zero and we’re unlikely to sign Bentaleb. Surely it would make sense for his career to sign a deal here as he’s almost guaranteed Premier League games given our squad. It would have been worse for him if the takeover happened.

We are nailed on for relegation

Yeah f*** that.

Not even going to wish him luck.20k a week is too much for anyone to live on anyway. A nurses annual wages every 8 days or so.

Get paid 20k a week more to not have to play for the Brucesaurus at Mike Ashley FC.

Don’t blame him one bit.

Indeed, he'd only have stayed if he wanted his career to stagnate.

He may have had more opportunity to play in the PL next season, but playing for this rudderless lot doesn't exactly put you in the shop window by making you look a good player, unless you're a player of great physical and technical ability.

£20k is fine, he wants £30k.

He can't move directly to another English club without us asking for a fee, and I think the Udinese/watford loan deal now Watford are in the Championship looks dead. I'm guessing our owner situation doesn't help, but his options don't looks as rosy as they did a  few months ago.

This club is a joke.

Good on Bruce making zero attempt to persuade Matty to stay as well.....
