Brendan must be standing on a box lol, he's tiny compared to most of the others.  Not that there's anything wrong with that.

Maybe they're all lying down?

Yeah it was updated after everyone named Greenwood, he's been being kept away from the United squad because a friend committed suicide apparently.

The picture of the football says WHU on it, so not sure if that's a subtle clue from them, or just pure coincidence. I guess we'll find out in the next few days.


Was it the young lad from Man City’s academy?

Just looking at players earnings a bit earlier, David de Gea of Man Utd in 9 seasons has earnt £76 million and his latest contract (5 years) will mean he will in total have been paid £155 million!!   I also noticed that Chelsea have 16 players on £100 000 plus per week with Ben Chilwell (highest paid) on £190 000. What a time to be a premier league player.

                         Pickford 

Trippier Walker Dier Mings Chilwell

                    Rice   Henderson 

               Mount Kane Grealish 

 

That team is bloody average. 

Yes but there's a fair few injuries plus rotation taking place. I still think England has one of the best 1st elevens in the world.

Chilwell is Chelsea’s highest earner ?

 

and their highest earner is 190k/week ?

 

not convinced ....would be amazed if havertz or werner’s agents failed to get them 200k, especially Werner whose release clause was only 50m 

 

and Thiago silva was a free - would he have signed for less than 10m ?

I looked at about 5 different sources, Timo Werner second highest paid £170 000.Thiago Silva is 36, £200 000 a week? I doubt it.

Silva was on 300k per week at PSG. He has signed for one year and it was a free. Romano reports his weekly salary to be 115k .... if I was working for HMRC i would be looking where in the world the s/o fee went ........

Do find it funny and almost, in fact very cringe the way the press are bigging up grealish because he did a few good things for a very average team last night (didn't watch the game but it xNt have been extra ordinary as they're saying, we didn't score) . I rate him highly but quoting romanticised Orwell literature about Southgate finally understanding he's decent (opening his eyes for a change) is a bit much, borderline pathetic when we were apparently so shit last night.

To be fair they'd do the same if it was Maddison and you'd not have a problem. They do it with any new player on the block and rightly so right now given how turgid and abhorrent this Southgate regime is.

A really interesting but frustrating read - I really wish the author could just say what he clearly wants to say but I get the feeling he is tiptoeing around this country's ridiculously strict libel laws.

Yeah I heard something about how he "came of age" as an England player last night which is a weird thing to say when he lost, to nil, having not scored, assisted or really even created much other than set piece opportunities by drawing fouls. 

 

I rate him and I think he should be in the England side but he's definitely got some growing to do as a player. I've said before that the big test for Grealish when he leaves Villa is how he transitions from being the Small Pond Big Fish to being just a cog in a well run machine

 

Last night he played like he plays for Villa, looking like he's got no team mates. I appreciate at Villa a lot of the time he probably DOES have to do it all himself. If he wants to truly be a great midfielder he needs to get better at bringing his team in to play. 

 

A fair few times last night he had good passing options on but ignored them because he wasn't finished impressive everyone with his dribbling yet. The net result is just slowing the play down. Even if he goes on a run and draws a foul, so what? Belgium play with three big centre halves, plus Lukaku, De Bruyne and a giant goalkeeper. Its not like winning set pieces was ever going to be an easy route to goal. 

 

When Madders gets the ball, his first thought is nearly always who he can bring in to play. Grealish's first thought seems to be who can I beat or bait. 

 

He's come a long way and proved a lot of doubters wrong but he's still got a fair bit to do IMO. 

 

Obviously he could go to Man U
