Premier League 2018/2019

Not take into consideration Grealish may be happy at Villa? Good side if they get rid of Bruce pronto.


#263

Pretty sure Spurs were in for him during the summer but Levy was too tight to spend any money, he would have been good back up for Eriksen. Can’t see him hanging around at Villa if they don’t get promoted. The contract is a win for him, doubles his money, and a win for Villa, ensures they get well compensated if he leaves next summer


#264

spurs were in for him - Villa were struggling for cash - fee was mentioned , it was going to be met , then they got the cash side of tings sorted and then Grealish wasn’t for sale unless it was for silly money , which hes not worth - especially if he was going to be a squad player behind eriksen.


#265

Came across this when keeping an eye of the spurs stadium thread.
Often wondered why pat the baker would have an advertising hording when Ireland were away to Russia.


#266

any idea what the fee went up to? I heard it was around €25M but could be way off. If it was, and I know this is ridiculous, it’s around the going rate for a good backup/squad player these days. With the amount of games Spurs will play this season he would have got a fair few games


#267

had heard 25 million and that was offered , but then villa wanted 30 million then 40 million then he wasn’t for sale.

Would have took a chance on him for a decent price (less than 25 million) but it didn’t happen.

Not following too much soccer ball these days , so not sure how he is getting on and how villa are doing.
he wanted to go by all accounts , kept the toys in the pram and signed a new contract , i’m sure if they don’t go up he’ll be moving on next year.


#268

Spurs will do that to a man.


#269

ha ha - following spurs , but not taking much note of the rest of the PL and Lower leagues


#270

Injury time equaliser for Manure in the Carabao cup against Derby in Old Trafford. I can’t wait to listen to Maureen-i-oh’s interview! Popcorn salted and ready!


#271

Fnaaaarrr! Great penalty shoot out!


#272

Old Trafford faithful ain’t gonna be happy to be knocked out of their best chance of silverware this season.


#273

Mourinho may not see the weekend. It’s Pogba or him I think …


#274

Yea he is under serious pressure. Cant see them finishing in the top 4 the way things are going


#275

I can. If you turn the table upside down … :smirk:


#276

Would United fans really care that much about the Carabao cup?


#277

Getting beaten at home by Derby after a very disjointed start to the season? Eh … yeah.


#278

So you’re a United fan?


#279

Can’t stand them. But I like Liverpool …


#280

If I was a united fan I’d be happy to be out of that cup especially with their squad, no way they’d be able to compete in 4 competitions.

Just watched the highlights, cracker by Harry Wilson, he’s going to be a great player. Great penos too until Jones stepped up


#281

penos were good.

dunno , think its worthwhile playing the fringe players in the league cup
