    To be fair if you're choosing him then you're wrong.

    Can't think of a single player who would have that much of an impact. Players like Sanchez and Hazard, while wonderful in their sides, wouldn't improve a team as much in my opinion.

    They would ours. The needs of all sides are different. We have Wanayama and/or Dier who both do an excellent job in that position.

    We don't however have a player like Hazard or Sanchez. But then, not many sides do!..

    Yeah but you're a Sunderland fan and Commie is (I think).

    Nevertheless, Kante is in a totally different league to Wanyama and Dier.

    It's a good point. Gueye has done the same job for us this season, and he's been our best player by a street. We severely missed him on Saturday <grr>

    I've heard about how good he's been for you but I wasn't all that impressed with him against us on Boxing Day.

    They hype had him down as the next Kante but I actually thought Amartey had the better game.

    Love players like them though. No nonsense, no whinging, just get the ball off the opposition and give it to the fancy players who can pass it about.

    Spurs.
    Wanayama completely shut him down in our recent game against Chelsea. One of the major reasons we won so easily.

    I wasn't at the Boxing day game, but he's been fantastic all season.

    His workrate is immense, if we land Schneiderlin to play along side him I can see them making a cracking midfield pairing.
