    Jordan Lukaku

    The best way to improve a squad is to bring in better players than you have in your first team. So the player deemed to be a first team player before, drops to the bench, and replaces the squad player, who was deemed not good enough to start in the first team. Buying players not deemed to be good enough to start in the first team is pointless, they are just squad fillers, and that way of transfer dealing will see a team tread water or worse over the passage of time.

    Nigeria v Argentina match thread

    Got to say, Ndidi has been immense second half!

    Nigeria v Argentina match thread

    Indeed, better than Ndidi in the games so far. Stoke have got a player. Certainly looks better than championship level anyway.

    Marvin Plattenhardt

    Him and Vardy will be best mates then, Vardy has the same problem with England! Also Hummels is obviously Germanys Dele Ali.

    Xherdan Shaqiri - Gone to Liverpool

    He has talent, no doubt about that, but not consistent enough or hard working enough for me. I know the same could probably be said of Mahrez, but Mahrez is a far better player and will win you far more games with his magic than Shaqiri will in my opinion. Have to say though, in todays market, he does look a tempting gamble.

    Jack Grealish

    I don`t think even Everton would throw 40 million quid away on Grealish, when if they bide their time and wait for Villa to send out the begging bowl they can get him at a far lower price. Obviously the more clubs that are in for him, the better for Villa, who will be hoping for a bidding war, but that bidding war will not start or end even remotely close to 40 million in any case. Personally i would prefer Maddison over Grealish anyway.

    Jack Grealish

    Exactly right, in fact why would anyone.

    Jack Grealish

    There is no way he is going anywhere for 40 million quid! Least of all Tottenham, where Daniel Levy is notoriously difficult to negotiate with. Villa are desperate for money, i would imagine that any clubs interested will bide their time, until Villa come calling with their begging bowl, and he will be sold at a knockdown price..

    Felipe Anderson - West Ham

    No thanks, he`s crap!!

    True although in my opinion Huth was a better signing, and actually made Morgan a better player.

    Slimani - Wants to leave

    Except of course that we had been interested and scouted Slimani long before Ranieri came to the club.
