    yep, if you are going to do the Cantana dazed and confused, look you have to go all in.

    Get him signed on a long contract. Has earned a pay rise for sure.

    He spoke very well. I also watched the Ralph interview...my word, how boring are those questions?! FFS change it around Saints! You just know every interview will end with the “...and just how important were the fans Ralph?” question!!! Is it not beyond the wit of man to find a set of questions that are not designed to lead the discussion?������

    It is annoying. If the answer to a question is 'yes', 'no', 'very' or 'not at all', then it's a bad question. Or more precisely a closed question. Open questions - in the form of 'tell me about...' almost always elicit more interesting answers.

    The kind of closed questioning you see in club PR interviews betrays either a lack of confidence in the players to express themselves well or a simple lack of interest.

    Valery is an articulate young man. He doesn't need this annoying prompting.

    Similar to the same inane questions at the end of every Sky live game.

    Geoff Shreeves: "How important was that win?"

    Manager: "Not important at all. In fact I'm rather disappointed that we didn't lose".

    So because of Forster we shouldn't try to get promising young players to sign longer contracts?

    Glad you aren't in charge!

    Wow, Verbal actually posted on the Main Board!
    That's got to be a forum history first?

    It's not just Forster, we have a history of signing players up to lomg contracts and then they **** off. Not saying we shouldn't do it but it usually ends up pointless other than getting a decent wedge when they go or costing us a lot when we can't shift them. Valery is doing great, as some of us had thought he would, but to sign him up to an expensive contract based on a handful of games is risky, and at this stage unnecessary. I'm also glad you're not in charge.

    It doesn't have to be an expensive contract, just a longer one.

    Players haven't ended up leaving because they have signed a new contract, they would have left anyway.

    Longer contracts = bigger fees.

    Its a no brainer for someone like Valery who is probably on a tiny deal for a player who is now a PL regular. Doubling his wages would still make him earning far, far less than most of our squad.

    There was a moment outside of that sumptuous, 25-yard strike at Old Trafford that illustrated his growth perfectly: it came in the 10th minute, when he squared Paul Pogba up, knocked the ball forward and surged past him.
    It was a jaw-dropping moment on a lesser scale to the goal, and not just because of who he was up against, but what he decided to do.
    As I said in the post match, when he did this it did put a stupid grin on my face.
    As Billy mentioned a few weeks ago in League One minus 10: Young Master Valery plays with a "I don't give a F*** who you are attitude".

    Any agent worth his salt will insist that it's both.

    Since youíve played at right back,
    Our defence ainít been a mess,
    And we donít miss Cedric much,
    And we love the way you press

    So why donít you cross one over,
    Or grab another goal for meeee?

    Why donít you cross one over,
    Vallleeerrryyyy?

    Right up with the two goals as the best moment in the whole match. Owned Pogba, and you could’ve heard a pin drop in most parts of Old Trafford.
