    What I love most about Raul, even if he don't score he can still have a brilliant game. Like some strikers, if they don't score it's like, were they even playing?! But there's been lots of games this season where Raul's not got a goal but still been influential and been one of our best players.

    Raul (and all of our players) are modest, self-effacing and professional...

    Then you get this... All that's wrong with modern football.. One guy who l wouldn't be at all heartbroken if he suffered a career-ending injury...

    I have no problem with Pogba. He's a muppet at times, but he's harmless; he's not looking to injure anyone, or to provoke, and then celebrate a red card like that utter tool Ward-Prowse in midweek against Zaha. Football would be much worse off without characters and social media buffoons like Pogba.

    But it feels a bit special when your club is represented by the good guys - Jimenez, Neves, Moutinho, Coady, players with some joy and intellect and respect, and real heart and soul.

    It sounds daft, but I wouldn't swap Jimenez for any other striker in the league. Not Salah, not Kane, not even Aguero, and I bloody love Aguero. He just fits. He's awesome.

    If we don't make his signing permanent in the summer that will, for me, take some of the gloss off this season, regardless of which 'star name' we sign instead. Jimenez is a Wolf, this is where he belongs.

    Not sure l agree with your comments about Pogba - he thinks that he's bigger than the club - but the rest is spot on

    That Pogba thing is photoshopped. It said something else like PP la something(I can't remember what) and was for a charity do. The fact that people believe it is real shows there's an obvious agenda against him.

    I didn't realise it said anything. Just thought it was an unfortunate dress sense. I think Paul Pogba has personality. He's charismatic and a bit of a berk. But berks are okay, some of my friends are berks.

    He is incredible.

    He has relegated Burritos to second in my favourite Mexicans.

    I never thought it would be like this... the feeling seemed to be that he was a wonderful footballer but couldn’t finish.....

    This goose turned into a swan!!! He’s the absolute biz! How lucky are we to have him .... sign him up Lawrie (I bet it’s a secretly done deal already!!)

    Fair play....it was as you say.

    You can't though ever dismiss the power of motivation......does he want to be a hero in the PL or go back to being a sub at Benfica??

    It is the same with Jota; he was 'threatened' publicly by interest in a couple of potential replacement targets and came back to deliver devastating form when it seemed he couldn't do it.

    The club and Nuno know that 'hunger' for us in our position is the required fuel for elevation.

    He is a rare talent who seems to have it all. If it's a question of money then I can work a few Saturdays between now and the end of the season if it helps.

    I'd proffer the only reason we're delaying his permanent move is for accounting reasons and keeping any fees out of this year's accounts. I'd imagine his signing is as good as guaranteed though.

    Apparently Jonny was signed in the Jan window because there was a clause in the loan agreement that we could open negotiations in January for a permanent move, so it was do or die!

    Involved in almost 50% of all our league goals. Staggering.

    Compare him to the likes of Arnautovic and that’s your point exactly.

    I’d love to see the data from those sports bra trackers the players wear.
    He was every ****ing where yesterday, if he was a car he would need a service every 4 weeks.

    I think the price has already been settled...a bit like what's happened with the other players and with Afobe.
