    2 sentences, you always save your best for me, Paddy.

    Phil isnt scouse, BTW, and what about all the nice things I said about your football club?

    I have no real interest in talking to you, going on the filth you have spouted previously.

    I think all this talk about not selling players is a waste of time and effort. If a player wants to go then he will. I'm a Saints fan and we have tied down Van Dijk on a long term contract but all the talk is he will be leaving in the summer for £50m

    I can think of only 2 clubs that don't have to sell, Barca and Real.

    You're exactly right, if a player wants to leave he will, they have far too much power.
    The only benefit of tying a player to a long term contract is to protect your asset, in that the value will be higher.

    I used to think how dare a player want to be away mid-contract. How would you feel if your employer came to you and said you're here for the next 4 years? How would you feel if he stuck you in with a class of apprentices and said you're not allowed to work with your peers?

    If an employee wants to leave, let him at the next transfer window.

    In principle I agree, but if he's lying to you, ie, "oh yes, double my wage and I'll stay for 4 years" then 12-18 months they ask for more or a transfer.

    Fair comment Brian but I guess there is an issue when transfer fees are involved. If a club spends £50m on a player who a year into his contract attracts interest from an even bigger club and then loses the will to play for his current club, his form drops and so does his transfer value. The club might have to sell him on losing millions of pounds on their investment.

    Alderweireld twice rejected a new contract and wants an exit clause instated if/when he does sign.

    Its so tricky to keep a good side together and add to what you already have. If he leaves he cant play the "I want to be in the CL" card, it will be for even more cold hard cash as in 99.9% of cases.

    He will want an improved contract and so will the next man, then the next, and the next.... and so it continues.
