    Much more confident in his passing on Sunday.

    Different player. The transformation is miraculous. And the way he is enjoying himself right now and connecting with the fans is great.

    Sorry, my friend... No amount of deflection can take away that big slice of humble pie, that was served to you warm - with custard - by our master chef Moussa Sissoko over this lovely Christmas period.

    Or to quote Phil Thompson on today's Sky Sports' Soccer Special programme: "The pace he has got, his choice of passes from that midfield area is not short of sensational."

    Phil Thompson :ross:

    If we get into a discussion on astrophysics I'll be sure to quote Harvey Price's opinion for you.

    Not sure why you think humble pie will be appropriate at any point. When he's playing brick I'll tell you he's playing brick, when he's playing well I'll tell you he's playing well.

    Another excellent game from Sissoko, he was superb as our defensive midfielder today and broke forward well as usual. Passing was very good again, quick and accurate. We really can't ask for any more from him imo, I bet Poch is over the moon with his contribution, given our injuries in central midfield.

    And he's not gonna get a rest until Dier is back imo, so it's a good job he's a bit of a machine as well!

    transformation is correct. i think there is still a bit more to eke out from that body. great thing is that Poch found the keys. i don't think it was meteorology, more something from the heart like courage or belief.

    I always saw the player he has come to be. Watching his France performances, all that was necessary to get the best out of him was to keep him busy and not thinking too much or too often.

    Running on instinct and reflex, he's a joy to behold. I'd hate to have play shoulder to shoulder against someone as big and mobile as he is. Human grindstone.

    I watched the game yesterday with friends who hated Sissoko. I mean really couldnt stand him. I have always said, there must be something there cos he Was great for France and Poch keeps picking him. We sat there and my mate just said he couldnt
    Believe the transformation and he is pleased to see him on the teamsheet
    At the moment. I would love him to score a couple of screamers- he’d almoat get cult status!

    His elevated status has allowed him to be involved in Sons’ goal celebration handshakes:D

    Just stop for a moment, clear your mind, then imagine.....

    Moussa Sissoko lifting the Premier League trophy at the end of the year.

    Yet another very good game from him, both he and Poch deserve a lot of credit for ignoring the boo boys and becoming a important player for us.

    I said last season that one of Poch’s finest achievements was in getting use from Sissoko. Obviously this has been superceded by their work this season. It takes two. Wonderful to see.

    The amount of ground this guy covers is amazing, he must be up there with Eriksen for how much work they do off the ball. Before any of the boo boys ( for Sissoko) get their nickers in a twist i am not compering them as players. :)

    It is probably too late in his career, but if he could develop a cool in front of goal, he'd be a complete package. He has shown great capacity to learn and develop, so I wouldn't put it past him next season. Send him to train with HK, and get HK to teach him the mental side of being a striker (as well as technique!).
