The Telegraph article suggests Spurs don't want to sell Kane and Man City don't fancy haggling with them all the way up the end of the deadline whereas Villa will be more easy to deal with and won't put up a fight to keep their player?   

I find none of that believable in the slightest - Grade A clickbait on a slow Saturday night.

I will only start to worry if Percy in the DT starts talking about it

Exactly. Gascoigne was a player when there were no 'players' (although Waddle, Hoddle and Cowans might disagree EDIT: and Barnes). English fans had been starved of flair. He undoubtedly had potential, and achieved some of it, but - tragically for him - he couldn't carry it through.

Equally, all this bunkum about 'if only he's signed for Sralex'...the man had and has serious mental health issues. Someone shouting angrily in his face wouldn't have changed that.
You missed one there. A mercurial talent who was criminally underused by England because no one could figure out how to best use his talents. Matt Le Tissier

The Villa Park vaccination hub is open all day today for anyone over 18. No appointment is necessary. Please pass this around and encourage all those not vaccinated so far to use this facility if they can.

Gazza had three good tournament games for England, 6 years apart. Jack currently has the world at his feet and has the potential to make the most  of it. Unlike Gazza who blew it, through a combination of self destruction on the pitch and unsupported mental health issues off the pitch.

I still think Grealish should be used in the same position as Gascoigne was for Villa and England

Centre attacking midfield and build a whole team around him
All this up front Drifting in from left is okay but not the best
He is our Modric thatís what he is a playmaker who a dictates and directs play

Southgate doesnít really like him and he doesnít  like squeezing him into a forward position because of the other players he thinks are better,
heís wrong of course but heís still looking at him in the wrong way ( so is Smith in my view a lot of the time)

For me heís a centre attacking midfield that should be the first name on the sheet and the rest of the team filled in to suit him
Thatís the way we compete with the other big European nations who also have those sort of players sitting and controlling midfield

Thatís the way we actually have a chance of winning the tournament imo

Not sure Gazza only had 3 good tournament games for England. I remember him playing pretty well against Holland in the group stage at Italia 90, against Belgium in rd 2 and Cameroon in the QFs. He was also playing against Germany in the semiís till he got booked. Euro 96, thereís Scotland, Holland and Germany. Thatís 7 games straight up.

The way people go on about him now youíd think he was Pele, Maradonna, Ronaldo and Messi all rolled into one.

That buys his left kneecap. He's not for sale.

Who is better than Jack in the team? 
Harry Kane. Purely based on best player in the team regardless of position etc.
Absolute guff.Kane is a jaded shadow of the player he was.

Agreed. He hasnt been top scorer in the Premier League since way back in 2020/21. He's finished.

Every player has a price and that includes Jack. But until he forces a move which I cannot see happening or the owners suddenly change their position on what they are building then this isnít going to happen. However often it is said in the media. And last night; the value in retaining your best players was again emphasized by Wesí Milwaukee Bucks making it to the NBA Eastern Conference Finals in large part because of the play of their version of Jack having a massive game. Thatís how these owners feel about our Jack and again, unless something has changed, they intend to build our success around him
