    Bullshit. He was class alongside kaboul

    He was never 'brilliant' ffs. He was good, but that's it. His best game by miles was the 3-0 Everton game where he scored 2 and even then Kaboul was the star performer

    He had some shocking games which people forget easily - the crucial 3-2 win over Chelsea he was all over the place and got hauled off at 1-2, O'Shea came on and shored us right up.

    Depends on what deal we struck with Strasbourg

    Kaboul asked to leave the club mate

    Quite possibly if we played him every week. He still might have nicked a couple of 1-1 draws off us though.;)

  10. If he ends up back at the club and we can't shift him, he has to play. He would be the best defender in the league, why on earth wouldn't we want him playing.

    I'm sure Kone always trained and played when fit, yes his performances weren't great last season, but neither were McGeady's and we love him

    Tbh, he was brilliant under Big Sam and an absolute tank next to Kaboul, they had a class partnership together but then it all went to shit after that season (in many ways).

    I doubt we'll see him back in a Sunderland shirt, Could it not be that Strasbourg are just trying to get him cheaper? I'm sure he's played the majority of games for them so it's not like they don't rate him. I expect that if they don't take up the option another club in France will be more than happy to.

    18m to Everton. Not even going to get 1.8 now. Always a bad egg, move should have never been blocked
