Yes I reckon the board and Allardyce must be cursing. Basically we signed Diarra on a 3yr contract, he spent 6 months injured came back and spent the next 6 months on loan. Had a good pre season by all accounts and is now injured for the rest of the season.
The problem is that we cant sign anyone because of the salary cap, Diarra is on 50k a week so we lose a player and he cant be replaced because he is on our books. Every season we seem to have a player that drains the club and we get nothing in return.
