    I'm not sure I'd say he's started the season in 'outstanding form'.

    He definitely not set the world alite and has looked slow. I think he can be an asset the squad longer term. But he's going to have to have a up turn in form before I'm convinced he should be first choice.

    I like him. I think he's a popular member of the squad and good for the atmosphere within the group. I think he's also a decent footballer, even if he's not necessarily a starter.

    Whether he's worth a new contract is another thing, but it's not my decision and those at the club obviously think he is, so fair enough.

    This will make people happy on the heels of Ulloa....

    He's a smashing lad.

    A sign that Drinkwater could be on the way out?

    This is fucking ridiculous. For the first time I'm starting to regret hiring Shakespeare. If Slimani leaves because he is a 'bad character' and fucknuts Ulloa and James are kept on it is a joke. No wonder Mahrez wants to leave. And Drinkwater should do everything he can to push through a move. 'Stay here Danny and play alongside Adrien Silva or Gylfi Sigurdsson and progress your career', sounds appealing. 'Stay here and fight relegation alongside Matty f'n James', not so much.

    Shakespeare talks about qualifying for Europe and then signs up Championship players.

    If he has any sense.

    And the rationale that Ulloa and James were signed up in case Slimani and Drinkwater leave is ludicrous too. Even if they do leave James and Ulloa aren't adequate replacements. Go out and sign someone of equal quality.

    Or at least stop pretending to talk a big game and admit that you are here to be the players friend and show loyalty to those who've been here the longest and you'll accept whatever mediocrity that brings.

    Giving long term contracts to one player who publicly said he'd never play for us again and another who has managed 2 games in a few years does seem sensible. Can't see the problem here.

    I get that people may not be happy with the reported stance that Ulloa took, but I struggle to think that James has done anything to warrant being called that.

    It was a stream of consciousness mate. I have nothing against either of them personally. Just their lack of footballing ability at this level.

    Ulloa and James - crucial to us when we have to think about the league cup and FA cup. Excellent players will not sit on our bench but these two will.

    I don't see what all the ridiculous meltdown is for. We signed a player up for a contract extension. So what? It probably won't prevent another coming in and it probably doesn't mean another is leaving.

    Why are you pissing your pants over this? The owners can spunk money away as they please if it doesn't prevent us strengthening. James isn't a bad option for cup games or for seeing games out. He's a squad player - probably what he's been retained for.

    Agreed. As long as he is not on £100K/wk.

    Because unless we're going to sign some more players this particular squad player appears to be first choice.

    Provided he stays, I suspect Drinkwater would start in his place, when he returns.
