    If he isn’t showing the quality it is easily replaced. It wouldn’t surprise me if the lad has a decent career after he leaves, but he is done here. Get a fee, get a sell-on clause and get players in that want to be here.

    Brilliant footballer but somethings not right for him at the moment, whatever it may be, he might have personal issues for all we know. He's still a young man and wherever he ends up I'm sure a 28 year old Ntcham will be a beast

    Christie managed to more than replace it last season

    Christie was an unexpected bonus last season, love his desire if Ntcham has Christie’s desire he’d be world class..

    So we’re talking about two different things, Ntcham has much more quality than Christie.

    He has all the ability in the world, but it's absolutely pointless if he doesn't show it.

    You could count on one hand the number of times Ntcham performed to his best ability last season. Probably still have a coupe of fingers spare as well.

    We’re talking about replacing his quality, which Christie more than done last year. Setting up the winner against RB was absolute * quality.

    I don’t disagree about his quality but when it comes to that quality having an effect on the pitch, the qualities already replaced.

    Aye I do get that.. and if he want the move (he obviously does) and we get the right deal, then all well and good.

    However, it’s frustrating because has shown true class at times and will only get better..

    The guy's had an attitude problem for most of his time here!! He's another luxury we can't afford. If we punt him and he's a superstar elsewhere so be it but sadly even though he's got the ability he's never gone be one with us.

    I love Christie and his introduction last season gave us an almighty boost but in terms of a pure footballer he’s not on Ntcham’s level.

    And in terms of helping the team and making the most of his ability, Ntcham’s nowhere near Christie.

    It’s why he’s ahead in the pecking order.

    Keeping him will actually do more damage than good. Imagine playing in the same team as a guy that you know can be frighteningly good and he's nonchalantly skelping balls straight out of the park when under no pressure or diving in to 7 or 8 stupid tackles at St Mirren when already on a yellow card. He doesn't give a *. Move him on and get someone in that wants to be here.

    I'd punt him of a good offer came in, there's been games where he looks like he can't be arsed, on his game he's great but he has way too many off days.

    There is no pecking order but I do agree he makes more of what he has. By miles.
