      Done well getting £11M for him. Weren't Roma only offering half of that last summer?

      That's a fair price I think, he's a much maligned player and has certainly made some high profile gaffs in his time with us but he's also played plenty of good football and has been a frequent contributor in his 6 years at the club. In that time we've won the league, the European Cup and been to 3 additional finals and he has had a part in that.

      Good servant to the club, part of the great relationship between the players which is vital. On his day he was a top class cb but prone to brain farts. Thanks degsy and all the best for the future

      Best of luck to Dejan.

      Clear he was now the 4th choice CB here so it's a good move for him.

      Poor Mo will be heartbroken.

      It will be interesting to see who we sign as a replacement.

      Obviously a passionate guy, and am sure he would've like to have been more involved last 2 years or so, but we have quality options now at CB.
      Thought we might have got 15mill, but guess age has to be considered too.
      Wish him well.

      They were going to offer similar fee at the start than by the end of the window tried classic loan deal with option.

      I wonder now when Lovren leaves who will be clubs new whipping boy.

      have we been unfair on Lovren, putting unfair expectations of a defender not to have at least 2 brain farts leading to dangerous situations per game, naughty us!!!

      FINALLY!

      Good luck to him.  But has been my least liked player since the migs and Moreno left.  These 3 players were the foundation of one of the worst defence we've ever had in my time as a supporter.

      Feels like he was the last of the "whipping boys". Someone needs to make the step up (or down, should I say) and take the mantle from Dejan ;D

      Always felt sorry for Glen Johnson. I remember he used to really get it really bad at one point and I never thought he was that bad. I think that would have been just before Dejan, Moreno & Mignolet started to get most of the attention in that regard. Think fans just need someone to point the finger at

      When you have to compete with the likes of Gerrard, Alsono and Masch make you a easier target when things go wrong. Sort of what happened with Hendo following in Gerrard's boots.

      yes but he had an incredible knack of giving away dangerous free kicks around the 16 yard box. Loved Lucas's character though, similar to Kuyt.

      Think we can all agree Dejan never pulled any trees, however despite his many brain farts there is a player in there somewhere, me, I think he is a very good defender and I am being kind here, to me he can’t handle being in a top side like ours, where he is expected to give a minimum of 7/10 each and every week, he is too inconsistent, and the more mistakes he made put him under even more pressure next time out,

      His level of football would suit a side like Leicester or maybe a Spurs side at a push, he wouldn’t be expected then to perform at the level required by obviously ourselves, MUtants, Shitty or Chavs, in layman’s terms a top 4 side,

      I hope he finds a team where he can feel comfortable and allow him to play at his level, it’s not out of the question he could find that side in the EPL, he’d probably have drop his spondoolies somewhat but that would be down to him,

      Being honest I haven’t a bad word to say about the fella,  he gave his best when asked, ok sometimes that wasn’t good enough but we can’t all be perfect can we ?

      Good luck Dejan, thank You.

      No he's f**king not, we've got a higher standard than that. I don't rate Riise as a legend in any way especially when I've seen the likes of Pennant skin him.

      Barney Rubble now he's a legendary left-back in my eyes.

      I wouldn"t say every free-kick was dangerous, actually he was hated initially cos of the penalty he gave away at Wigan away. He gave away free-kicks in non dangerous areas and usually gained yellow cards cos he ended up doing the Hamann/Fab role of being the midfield destoyer breaking up attacks.
