  1. I actually think our midfield 3 put in a real shift tonight. All 3 had their sloppy moments and lacked a bit of end product but to say tonight was “Grealishs worst game for us in 3 years” is ludicrously harsh. Had Wesley finished that header from his wonderful cross early on or had Jack finished that chance at the death, I doubt there would be any such comments...
  2. Here we go... Played his part.
  3. I think the midweek training at Villa Park means that we’re going to see debutants this week
  4. Disagree that he will start next game. We were always going to be hemmed in at the back against spurs and so we setup to counter with our two quickest wingers. Against Bournemouth it’ll be important to have more overlap that Taylor just doesn’t/can’t provide. Fair play to him vs spurs though, he was brought in to play a specific role and I think he performed it reasonably well.
  5. Could potentially mean that there are plans for Douglas Luiz to return to Man City in a year or two and that it’s more of a “work permit deal” and that we think it’s better to move for Phillips now than in a year or two? Just a thought.
  6. Seems the bookies are pretty confident the league is ours....
  7. I suspect just blindly patriotic. In other news, I cannot believe another premier league side hasn’t snapped up Mile Jedinak as they would be privileged to have him. He has more international caps than I have dollaridoos, is the best defensive header that football has ever seen and I once saw him make a grown man cry just by staring at him. *disclaimer: I may or may not be Australian*
  8. Agreed. Has a very similar gait to him, probably just a tad more agile.
  9. To me the fact that we are spending 20 million on a goalkeeper which seems more of a ‘luxury’ than a ‘need’, just goes to show that we are in a very wealthy position
  10. I think he has heart, just absolutely zero talent
  11. Great post. Given the link seemingly quoted us and Valencia as in for him, it could well be that the owners are genuinely willing to go for him early with a big money move as a signal of intent. Signing a player like him will improve our appeal for other players considering joining us + keeping Grealish in future. If we pull it off - great, I say it’s a worthwhile investment for so many reasons If we don’t - nothing to lose, plenty of time/targets to look for elsewhere.
  12. He’s only touted as the next Suarez because he is Uruguayan... He plays for Celta Vigo not Barca Agree he would be an astounding capture but we don’t yet know what our owners are capable of.
  13. Let’s not forget that Jed Steer has been excellent. By all reports Jed trained the house down, earned the right to an opportunity and took it with both hands. I commend Smith for making the call to put faith in a keeper competing for a spot with one of his major signings so far. Sends a message to the squad that everyone will get a fair crack regardless of stature. As someone above has mentioned, I’d be quite content heading into next season with these two competing for the number one spot.
