    That was enjoyable, but only a very strong ref, Phil Dowd, saved us from going down to 10 men again in one of these games.

    The feller was way too much trouble than he was worth.

    Delighted to see the back of him.

    Capable of very good performances in flashes and moreso when he first came over rather than recent seasons. Couple of stunners v Spurs, break away goal v Stoke, very good curling free kick v villa I think and always very composed when 1:1 bar the peno he took off Baines. Seemed incapable of 90mins or putting a spell of form together over a period of months.

    We got his best years and now he’s on the wane his awful attitude isn’t worth the effort. Good luck Kev.

    i'm sorry, but £4m is utter pittance, we should be getting around £10m. He'll be very very good in all the european leagues bar the big 5. We're willing to sell liam walsh who's never even made a matchday squad for about half that. This guy has 65 caps for the bets international team in the world. I don't care how off form he's been the last three years, his ability is still there. None of the other top 7 would sell a player like this so low. Him and barkley have both gone very quickly, i know we're desperate to trim the squad, but it seems like we've just accepted the first two offers on the table.

    We've got nothing left to play for this season, i don't understand the immediate rush to just flog off everyone, at least try and offer them around europe first and try and negotiate. After the fees for barkley and mirallas i hope to hell we won't be selling klaassen and sandro this window, we'll end up with about 50p for the pair, without even giving them a fair crack of the whip the way this is going.

    Would add to that, good player, poor professional, very nice guy by all accounts, wrecked by hamstring/Achilles problems

    ‘What Carragher said’... come on.

    Kev is talented, his best years are behind him, I loved his nasty streak in games but hes not worth the effort anymore.

    There didn’t seem to be too many well wisher on our side the other night, albeit we still got turned over

    Were talking about a club who announced a signing at half time in a derby, let their most valuable asset leave for 15 Mil after letting his contract run down after only giving hin a 3 year deal when dog [Poor language removed] players were getting 5 years, held on to miralles for 18 months to long,
    You can't just expect them to suddenly become professional overnight

    He wasn't going to get a game under Allardyce again so the way I see it is it's 4/5m more than what we had.

    Seems to be a loan for about 4m with no option to buy at the end. We have him tied up until 2020, I think we’ll do ok out of this.

    Good luck to him, went right down hill for him here so a move was needed, wrong attitude really

    There’s been something rotten in the squad for a while so it’s good to see some departures.

    that's what i heard last night, but didn't believe it, then i read the OP which seems to suggest loan with a £4m view. Surely olympiacos don't have the kind of money to splash £4m on half a year's loan? I've never heard of a loan that expensive for half a season.

    I used to like him, on his best days he had some fight and snide, and took a great free kick and was a general goal threat.

    Sadly, we never saw enough of any of those things.

    In his 30s now, and way too much trouble than he is worth.

    Doesn't say much that he has to go back to the Greek league, in fact it says it all.

    He is the footballing equivalent of a bit of old junk that was kept for too long, and when you bin it, it feels great.

    Glad the sulk has gone. Looked a great prospect for us when he first arrived but just became a diva the longer he was here. If we have accepted £4m as a final fee then it must have been just to get him and his bad influence away from the club.

    Bye Kev. Even if he was an utter tool at times, he had his moments.
    If he comes back, he can decapitate Firmino.

    Pretty much nonplussed by this news. Good luck Kev, hope you sort out a decent long term deal after the world cup by having a brilliant tournament and pushing your value sky high.
