Says the 55 players are contracted to 9 clubs, then lists 10 clubs, and doesn't even list Tottenham either. They single out various players who have recently transferred (Matic, Mbappe) to acknowledge the playing time has been for a different club but for whatever reason Lukaku has no reference to Everton.

Finally, how the fudge dele or eriksen don't appear ahead of Coutinho and Ozil is shocking.

was thinking about Harry earlier. I read this interview with Gary Mabbutt and after the 1987 cup final he had offers from clubs including Liverpool. Kenny wanted Beardo, Barnes and Mabbs. But Mabbs turned down Pool because he really liked playing for us. Makes you think that it isn't just because of injury or lack of interest that players stay at one club. Sometimes there is genuine love. Think King, Mabbs, Totti....and hopefully Kane, Winks and many more to come at our club.

So frustrating having players like Ozil - same old BS names. No wonder players feel they need to move on to get recognition.

I can't believe Jordan Henderson isn't on the list...
