    Henri Lansbury

    This is a very valid point.

    I haven’t seen the game, but I suspect with our midfielders, he’s prob 6th choice once we get Douglas in So opportunities will be limited

    You really think that my comment was the craziest comment you ever read? So you think that Tammy’s link up play, ability to hold the ball up, passing, movement, dribbling ability are all significantly better than KD?

    He’s a very good player. Actually a better footballer than Tammy, but just needs the all important goals.

    I know... the nicest part of Birmingham quite frankly... But these are HOUSES. FLATS.. only the Royal Court apartments, and the converted Little Aston Hall are of any real value.. but why would you move to Sutton to live in a flat?

    I can’t think thinking any flats in Sutton that would be of any interest to someone shopping with the kind of budget Dougie is...

    But you’ll have to leave the thread, then go back into it before you can get the permission to see it.

    Fair enough, I think I misunderstood what you were suggesting.

    100% agree with this, and completely disagree with the notion of dropping our most potent creative force in favour of a more defensive midfielder in certain games. There is 0 value in inviting pressure onto ourselves in the hope that we can keep the opposition out, and I’m sincerely hoping that that this flawed way of thinking left the club in the same box as Steve Bruce’s mug and family photos when he cleared out his office. We May well need to defend deep at times given the level of the opposition we’ll be up against, but we need players exactly like Grealish on the field that means that they can’t afford to have their entire team in our half like a battering ram because of the lack of offensive counter threat. Besides, as you say, he has really shown extraordinary efforts in tracking back and disposessions and closing down of the opposition. He is far from a ‘luxury’ player. I agree having the personnel on the bench that can close out the last 15-20 minutes of a game will be handy, but to consider starting with 2DMs and a box-box is the kind of defeatist attitude I’d hope Smith doesn’t believe in.

    So long as the buy back is a substantial profit, then there’s no problem with this at all. Paying fees to loan players with no option to buy is the biggest problem, basically paying for the privilege to give another teams squad players exposure and game time. Yes we might be forced into selling back at a cut price deal, but quite frankly we’re purchasing at a cut price in the first place. Best case scenario is that there clauses stipulating city can’t just buy to immediately sell on for profit. In which case if he plays brilliant, but not quite world class - they probably wouldn’t want him back.

    Maybe they’ll forget to stipulate WHICH Douglas they can buy back.. change Hogan’s name to Douglas Luiz by deed poll, and don’t hand him over until the money is in our bank.
  14. I like him. i like him because of spygate. i like him because he gave us the goal. i like him because he coaches good football. i like him.
  15. I don’t think I’d risk a rookie keeper as back up when premiership survival is on the line... one injury and its game over.
