    Player watch: Toby Alderweireld

    He played this spring, and he'll play this autumn if he's still at the club. Just like Walker played after him and Poch had a falling out. Poch is a professional.

    I think they where talking about Graelish specifically, and he meant that he isn't our first choice.

    Pardon my ignorance (and 'off topic'-ness), but is Wyscout something to look at when checking out players we are linked to, or is it too technical? I see they have a 14 day trial.

    Player Mateo Kovacic

    Maybe you’re right, but I think we talked about the same thing when we where buying Soldado, and head a release clause. But anyway, a release clause would require the whole amount to be payed upfront, no?

    Player Mateo Kovacic

    Am I wrong, or do release clauses in Spain require the player themselves buying out their own contracts? If so, we would need to give Kovacic 44 mill for him to buy himself out. And as far as I know, we don’t pay that much upfront for any transfer. I maybe wrong, but I seem to remember this...

    Player Jack Grealish

    So, because we're at a different stage of our development, we should stop buying cheap talent? Buying established stars is expensive, and no sure way of getting success. Look at Manchester United, what have they achieved since Ferguson left? Some trophies, sure, but nothing a club of that...

    You probably said the same thing about Dier.

    Hope none of them are the primary CM option, then...

    As long as there is a sliver of hope, I will cling to it. Toby can't be replaced cheaply. I know many say we replaced him last summer, but that is not the case, IMO. Sanchez still has a lot to learn, we cannot expect him to perform as consistently as Toby at such a young age. Poch obviously...

    If it is a bid in euros, we have to assume it came from abroad, not from United. Can’t demand Martial in return, then :p:p

    Seems like a hard deal to get over the line, then :sorry:
