What's everyone's thoughts on the Jack Grealish rumours in the media.
I think he'd be a great addition in the summer.
Ed001, I remember you commenting on him recently saying he wasn't a player who you thought could play in a top club. Do you still see him as such? His recent performances have been very good.

{Ed001's Note - I still haven't seen anything other than a player who takes too many touches and then dives but somehow gets given a free kick. Most of the time there is no challenge and he still gets the decision. I can't even watch Villa any more as I find it so frustrating that he is such a blatant cheat but gets away with it. I watched the first half of one of their games recently and he was not fouled once but racked up a ton of dangerous free kicks. I am not a fan in the slightest.

The lad has the ability, but not the brains. He needs to release the ball earlier. If he did, Villa would be safe.}

Not a fan either, just a purple patch for him in PL this year. scoring just 13 odd goals in 3 seasons in championship shows his level.

He's a tough player to peg. Clearly has tonnes of ability, but somehow doesn't make the most of it.

Maybe it's not having other players around him of a similar level, or maybe being the big fish in a small pond makes him look better than he is.

He needs a great coach who can get the penny to drop with him. If he can learn to use his talents in the right way for the team then he could be a top player, if not then he will always be a nearly man.

Im not sure if would be able to cope with the pressure at United. Some wilt some thrive. Can he produce special moments every week and still be 8 outta 10 for the other 88 mins.
That's what's reqired.

A good manager could take him to the next level.

07 Feb 2020 19:49:11
I think he’s looked better than what we have and has a bit of character.

Would have to always be the question is he the best you can buy and is he better than what you have.

Tris, I think you are being overly harsh. I think he is the most fouled player in the EPL. He has huge quality but does seem to have something of a billy big boots attitude. The debate is whether he can step up at a big, club or would crumble, personally I think he would step up and be some player.

{Ed001's Note - he has won the most free kicks, but almost none are actually fouls. What he does is take far too many touches and play himself into trouble and dive. When refs finally wake up and realise he is cheating, those 'fouls' will dry up.}

Won’t go for him now got Bruno.

Midfield recruitment will probably focus on Declan Rice now.

08 Feb 2020 10:31:57
Declan Rice is still raw and not a finished product.
I feel we should go all out for SMS or Saul Niguez who is technically class.

A midfield will of Bruno, McTominay and Saul will have creativity, energy and can dominate games.

Backup options of Fred, Matic and Garner will provide good depth in terms of rotation.

08 Feb 2020 10:33:51
Declan Rice? Really?

08 Feb 2020 11:40:44
I can see the appeal of Rice. Not the player I would go for, but a good defensive midfielder with huge scope for improvement and British to boot.

Personally I would want someone who can see those defence splitting passes that can cut through a team, as well as someone who can shield the back four, break up play and track runners.

I think we need two midfielders to give us a more rounded selection. Currently we have two destructive energetic box to box players in McTominay and Fred. While Bruno Fernandes is a creative player who can score and assist.

I think we need a proper holding midfielder who'll give the midfield a base and shield the defence. someone who could set the tempo with their passing would be preferable.

While the second midfielder needs to replace Pogba, a box to box player who is creative. Someone who'll pick the ball up and dribble through the lines and break a press then have the presence of mind to make the right decision in the final third, either shoot or pass to a forward runner.

Rice a good dm? Very overrated and his future lies at cb. Not needed.

Ruben Neves for me.
