May well have played his last game for us. Apparently he flew home to Argentina on Sunday after stating he was not available for selection. He said he has a tight hamstring.

Not sure if this is another Jonny Evans story, going in a mood as he wasn't selected, but would appear to be. Not sure how to feel, as he's always been a favourite of mine. His contract is up now too.

Someone like Yacob deserves a good send off (no pun intended), as he's been with us a fair while and has been a good servant.

Think you may be reading too much into it. It's not uncommon for players to get off early if they're not involved in the final game of the season, they pretty much break up straight away anyway. Would love him to have a decent send off, may be a case of bringing him back a la Olsson for a goodbye prior to a game next season if he is to leave.

Personally, I would be devastated (may be too strong a word) if we didn't get to say goodbye to Claudio.  He has been a fantastic servant and a great player for us, his axis with Mulumbu and Morrison for a couple of seasons was just superb.

I think Yacobs lack of game time, and the preference of Barry made him feel he was surplus to requirement.  He might also know who the new manager is,or isn't.
I've always liked Claudio, and i wish him well.

Personally I would keep him for another season. Love his no nonsense approach in front of the back four.

However, I can see how disillusioned he must be under Pulis and Pardew so I wouldn't blame him if he sorted himself out a deal back home. I only hope that he would come back to say farewell.

Like Claudio, always have.
With a bit more pace to his game he could well have played towards the top end of the table.
Hope he stays for another season.

Won't be facing any disciplinary hearing for the weekend, neither will Evans.  Amazing the difference in response.

One has represented us well over several years, always giving his all, while the other has taken the piss for the last 12 months despite being made captain.

Amazing.

I realise the difference, what I'm saying is have a pop at Evans for his role in taxi gate, his performances etc, god knows, he's given everyone ammo but having a got at him over this while not criticising Yacob is a bit hypocritical. 

Turns out, according to the E&S they both had permission to miss the match so it's just over the top reporting.

Hope he stays and starts next season alongside Field and Morrison with some pace out wide from Burke and Phillips. One of our best ever signings.

Out of all our outfield players, Yacob is my favourite. I don't think it's coincidence that our form dropped when he was replaced in the midfield under Pulis. For me, he's one of the most underrated players around.

The way I heard it was that Yacob was at training on Saturday and said he'd got a tight calf/hamstring.  Therefore he wasn't selected for the squad.

Evans just sent a text on Saturday saying he wasn't available. (Although the club described it slightly differently.)

The club say both absences were approved anyhow.

Just started a two week trial for Stoke  :o

Well done Big Dave for your utter stupidity, quality, tenacious and loyal midfielder now with a rival.

Are you surprised? The guy hates anyone and everything about the club and can't resist a chance to spout negativity. Made a fool out of himself again though, the tweet was about someones football manager save.

Football Manager! You swallowed it hook, line and sinker. That is really quite hilarious. Getting your hair off about an imaginary two week trial in a game of pretend. I haven’t laughed so much since 1 - 5.

I imagine you will be wanting to withdraw your comment about Moore now?

Oh, and can I just say, I loved Claudio. Tremendous servant for the club and a player I always enjoyed watching, however hanging on to players past their sell by date has worked against us on a number of occasions. So on balance I wish him well, say thank you Yac, and good luck, but it was time to part company.

Your a long way off the mark. Glad the tweet was bull and Yacob isn't training with Stoke but I'm still very disappointed he was released, a huge error in my view. You accuse me of hating anyone / everything about the club. For the record I was and am a huge fan of Yacob who was a legend and should have been kept on. The decline of us in the premiership coincided with Yacob being phased out of the team.

It also coincided with Morrison and Chadli being injured, Phillips injuries,  McAuley out of the team you can pick any of a multitude of reasons for the decline.

Yacob is a very limited footballer, can’t pass, can’t shoot and can’t play in a 442. Also a sending off waiting to happen. Club made the right decision for me

Say what you like regarding whether it was right to let Claudio go, as is your prerogative.

But one red card in 160 Premier League appearances (+1 in the FA Cup v the Vile) would suggest he wasn't a red waiting to happen.

O.K so he got 41 yellows in those 160 Prem' appearances, but it was still only the one red.

It doesn't matter how many resources you have.
If you don't know how to use them, they will never be enough.
Oh, and always remember to defecate on those Vile chaps in claret and spew.

Probably the worst post I've ever read. He was immense for us and our decline started when he was dropped.
