    Player Jack Grealish

    That’s a very narrow and silly way of looking at things. What we are as a club doesn’t mean we should just pass up on signing good talent. Now if you think Grealish isn’t good that’s one thing. But criticisizing the “type” of signing is very foolish. Clubs like Real Madrid, Bayern, Juventus...

    Player Bruno Fernandes

    Him and Bryan Cristante have the same worrying trait of having bounced around a bunch and then had one good season. I’d rather go for someone who doesn’t run the risk of having just had a purple patch.

    What point? We’ve sold one player to a rival club. I can illustrate all those other teams having done the same.

    Olivier Giroud - Arsenal to Chelsea Alexis Sanchez - Arsenal to Manchester United Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain - Arsenal to Liverpool Willy Caballero - Manchester City to Chelsea Nemanja Matic - Chelsea to Manchester United Henrikh Mkhitaryan - Manchester United to Arsenal That was just last year.

    Player Matthijs de Ligt

    I said it before about Juve but Bayern is even more so. There record transfer is what? 35 million? Do you really think they’re going to break that record and then some for an 18 year old CB? When they’ve got an aging attack and Lewandowski is trying to force a move away? I don’t think so...

    Yeah it’s probably because of that Twitter dickhead.

    Maybe even Skipp if Bruce will use someone so young and if Bruce even ends up staying on. Ideally I don’t want our skilled players over there, but players with some grit like Skipp or maybe even Roles could fit in.

    Player Jack Grealish

    I agree with you that a top end CM would be my #1 priority as I think it’s the one position that a big improvement could see the team really take that big next step. That said all the rumours and ITK seem to suggest the club is looking at it differently. In all likelihood it appears most of the...

    Player Jack Grealish

    Will Hughes is a slightly different case. Firstly he operates a bit differently as he’s more of a playmaker from deep and typically a number ten type of player will be more valuable based on position (and production). Secondly Hughes was seen as having plateaued for a couple seasons after the...

    No idea, but I’d imagine we’d be exploring Eriksen and/or Alli there first.

    I’d actually be amazed if we could get 30mil for him. If it’s doable I’d be all for it.

    No need to lock it. Just stop posting in it. I’ll never understand why people get so excited and have to claim every thread needs to be locked.

    That’s a bold strategy Cotton. Let’s see if it pays off for him.

    Player Matthijs de Ligt

    Bertrand Traore is completely different. That was a player Chelsea were looking to sell - and did. Likely there was a purchase clause in there that either wasn’t activated or Lyon swooped in with more money. Totally different situation. As I said they won’t develop players for other teams...

    Player Matthijs de Ligt

    Unless we were going to sell him to them - none. Ajax don’t develop other team’s players. It’s simply not how they do things.
