On leaving Hull he featured in 36 of 38 Premier League games in his 1st season and 23 of the games of the 2nd season in the Championship before joining us in January. Yes of course the f...

There's only been 5 signings in the whole of the prem so far. It's hardly right to accuse us of not backing SD , when we are in the same boat as everyone else.
They are going back a lot further than that though when judging even though ALK weren’t involved then.
