Transfers these days are becoming like a soap opera. We hate players that gave us many a great day because they left. I'm thinking about Owen, Mascherano, Torres and possibly Couthino if this goes through. Its all a sham really, a club of our wealth will never let a player we want to keep leave without a massive fight. We don't bat an eyelid when Keita smashes a team mate in training or Lovren or VVD aren't mentally right to train. Its all part of parcel of modern football, if Couthino wants to leave he has no choice other than to be the pantomime villain. These little whispers from family members are the agent doing what he needs to do for his player, I don't think for one second that Couthino is privy to every stunt his agent plays and at the same time I don't think he or any of the lads mentioned earlier deliberately want to disrespect the club. If Couthino leaves we have no one blame but ourselves, we own him and don't have to sell him. Hopefully when he comes back we need to accept that this is the way its is and no harm was meant.
