It would be a sound option.


#7987

Looks useful. Will be interesting to see whether he can be as effective in the PL.

More on the Grealish saga from The Grauniad’s Rumour Mill:

Down-on-their-luck Aston Villa are facing up to the reality that they will have to accept reasonable offers for their best players. Soon it may dawn on them that their definition of reasonable needs to be downsized. And that unreasonable offers must also be considered. And that’s when Daniel Levy is expected to pounce. Tottenham Hotspur reckon Jack Grealish could be worth a punt, and while Villa are gabbling about £40m, Tottenham are thinking of offering about a fifth of that amount along with a pat on the head and/or a boot up the hole.

I can see Spurs being interested at ~ £10-12M.


#7990

Haha, that must be Glendinning.


#7991

It is Paul Doyle. I find his control of Irish aphorisms curiously comforting. :grin:


#7992

It does rub off. The Liverpool forum I occasionally visit is full of Irish lads.


#7993

Speaking as a Blue, I found the appearance of ‘Irish lads’ at the end of that sentence surprising. There are all sorts of other words that would be far more appropriate.

:zipper_mouth_face:


#7994

Speaking of blues , we’ve just signed a 23 year old Conor Grant from Everton. Was he highly thought of as some on our forum seem to suggest ? Obviously he’s not premier league standard but I’m hoping he’ll be a good signing for us.


#7995

Speaking of Blues we have signed bugger all!


#7996

Maybe some money will be available after Hazard, Willian & Courtois go after the world cup?

And you’ve hired Wenger :grinning:

#7998

Kin ell - next thing you’ll know is they’ll be paid as much as plumbers :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:


#7999

They’ll all be off on Far East / American tours

Kenny Dalglish knighted.


#8001

Hopefully he won’t go over the top about it

Old habits die hard


#8002

Merry Christmas the war is over


#8003

Britain’s richest man (£20 billion plus) makes a bid to buy Chelsea but Roman turns him down.


#8004

Shame they can have a rest of the team of not going players


#8005

It’d be fun to see a team like that given a wild card place but I can’t imagine any of their respective clubs being too happy about it.
