No team in the league kills value of their own players like villa. If this were Liverpool they would get £40m for Sanson..we will.be lucky to get a bag of haribo and some skips alongside loaning him while still.paying his wages.
Things can change quickly. Remember how bad we looked under Smith just before that 10 game unbeaten run. Then there was the time we looked destined to go down but somehow managed to nick some points all of a sudden.
It could just click under Gerrard starting with a win on Saturday. I have a feeling it will be a draw though with neither team wanting to lose the first 2 games of the season.
Yeah Poch was definitely unattainable back then, there was no chance he would leave PSG for us that may have changed now. Potter however may have been persuaded at that time but we would have had to fight dirty and prise him away from Brighton if we wanted him. If he is the man you want in charge though sometimes you have to play dirty like Deadly Doug did with Big Ron all those years ago, and make it happen.
A Netflix doc about how Netflix pivoted to become Murder Inc 2 might be interesting .
"Well I started out at Netflix in marketing but 3 years later here I am I'm chopping up bodies in a basement . I still cringe about my involvement in the entertainment industry if I am honest but it was the 20's and that's how we lived back then" .
If we remember correctly, Smith has also dropped Mings at one point. He didn't make unnecessary comments though.
He is a good player, but not undroppable, and we should have beaten Bornemouth with or without him.
