    Jack Grealish

    I can see him signing a contract with a release clause. ‘If we don’t go up in 2019, I can leave for £30mil’ that would be reasonable.

    I just come here a few times a day expecting to see a meltdown. Happy it hasn’t happened so far, but i fear it will be that much worse when he leaves 20mins before the deadline.

    Transfer Window Summer 2018

    I read that he’s going back to Belgium and I doubt anyone there has 60mil, not even all the clubs combined. he’s obviously out of favour so they won’t be asking as much as 7mil. Loan with option to buy for Villa is possible, though unlikely.

    Transfer Window Summer 2018

    I wouldn’t mind us going for Björn Engels (CB) on loan from Olympiakos. They want to get rid and he wants to go to England. His wages shouldn’t be too high.

    Steve Bruce

    Happy with him staying. Like others have said, we need to accept we are nog longer a big club that is automatically entitled to promotion. Now i don’t think Bruce is the man to make us champions league contenders any time soon, but he can get us up. After that we can get rid of him. I would like to know what people think a new manager can do here. There is no money, so we have to make do anyway. Would an inexperienced manager like Henry make these players so much better? Would a guy like Benitez be able to change anything withouten being able to buy? i don’t buy into the idea of ‘rather a mid table season with attractive football’ either. I want to see us win games and get promoted.

    Steve Bruce In or Out?

    In. a new manager coming in now, after most of pre season gone, is too much of a risk. We would get excuses like ‘the players haven’t adapted to my style of play yet’ for the first few games. If it’s Henry, it would be even more of a gamble as nobody knows what kind of a manager he would be. other than that, Bruce did quite well last year (except promotion of course). He knows the team, the league and the expectations and how to get a result.

    World Cup : Semi Finals & Final

    I’m curious to see how England will perform in 2 years. As you said, they struggled with every decent opposition. At the european cup, the group stage is harder imo, as there are no panama’s or tunesia’s. The mediocre european sides are often better (organised) than african, asian or north american teams. the creative players in the current side like Sterling or Dele haven’t done anything noteworthy throughout the entire world cup. Maybe the likes of sessegnon and grealish can add something if they can take the next step in their career. Organisation wise, southgate has something in place, but to compete with better teams like France and Belgium, that was not enough.

    Where is Kane? A few players have gone missing?

    World Cup : Semi Finals & Final

    Then he would have given a penalty at the end of the first half. Croatia is better 2nd half. No clear chances though

    Good first half from England. Both teams want to play football which makes it more enjoyable than last night

    World Cup : Semi Finals & Final

    Agreed, I usually sympathise with the english team but the way the hype ‘it’s coming home’ started after beating tunisia (barely) and Panama was not justified and a bit arrogant. i can understanding people want to be proud of their team and England didn’t show up in ages so they now get excited. But from the games I have seen, England haven’t really played that great. The only half decent team they faced missed their best player and it took penalties to beat them (Colombia played awful). smart to choose the weaker side of the table I guess. England can win it, but I doubt they can beat France should they beat croatia.
