He was actually away before Steven Gerrard's Rangers kicked a ball in anger mate - but I agree with all your other points.
Did he not play for Lyon against us in the pre season tournament? That was my thinkingYou remember wrong my friend (partly) as he never played against Goldson, never mind Helander.
He had moved to Lyon by the end of August 2018, your other points about him excelling against shite are totally correct & why his mythical status is somewhat baffling.
However, his very good form in France over the past couple of years has probably got him this move.
As much as I think he is a cock, I can’t deny he is a really good player but like I said, this is a very strange move because he is a lazy bastard.
