Geez, some people are really quick to write a player off. He's not had a massive immediate impact, but I think he did well today. I don't think it will be too long before he starts finding his feet and imposing himself a bit more.
We dominated possession, but I don't think Newcastle looked to be struggling to contain us too much. Particularly in that first half, when it was a lot of sideways passes outside their 18 yard box until the attack broke down. Plus we still gave...
Think it's a developmental fee that all clubs get when a player they developed moves. I think it's age capped.
It's more to benefit smaller clubs if a player they developed and sold gets a big transfer later on.
