      But players will back themselves. I've always said this. If a big club wants Mahrez, then he's probably not going to think "Oh good I can sit on the bench and earn thousands of pounds a week" Any player worth their salt is going to be confident enough to think they can break into those teams. It doesn't always happen. But if I were a player, at a club where I had no real affection (i.e. not Villa) then I wouldn't turn down a move to a big club like that at an early stage in my career. I don't think anyone would. You want to try and make it at a high level. I don't think it's the players not caring. I'm sure they would care if they KNEW they wouldn't play where they're going. But they won't know that. They;ll think they can make it.
    • Idrissa Gana Gueye
      He still played an awful ball yesterday, was trying to remember when and was reminded on the highlights as it lead to the Bassong chance. Funny old game, he gets punished for that like he did v City and we go 1 down and probably lose and yet another 20 posts of what a load of rubbish Gana is.
    • Relegation Thread Version...99?!
      If final league positions were actually determined purely by revenue, we could stop the troublesome process of actually playing football, and just declare Man Utd the champions for all eternity.

      fair enough - I was tired whilst watching
    • Media and punditry
      No, to be fair to them, they said of the payers starting yesterday's game, Gil was top scorer with 2.

      No worries. My reply was quite short tempered - sorry for that. I'll put it down to the hangover.
         
    • Sunderland
      Yeah, we may not be the club to beat. But at the same time, if we go down with, say, Sunderland and Norwich, then as long as we get our house in order we become the most attractive club to play for down there so we should  be able to acquire the best players in that league.
