Grealish's absence is similar to Sid's lack of call-ups.
Really? - I don't think Grealish has yet played anything like enough top-flight games, in the way that Sid had. Maybe by the end of this season he'll have provied himself.

Not sure if this has already been posted but it certainly brought a smile to my face. Brilliant stuff.

I see Bruce thinks John is only good enough for a mid table team:

“Newcastle manager and former Villa boss Steve Bruce claimed McGinn was currently performing "at Man United level" such have been his high standards of late”

And people wonder why he gets so much stick.

I've seen Bruce say McGinn was probably his best ever signing but I'm sure I've read somewhere that it was the owners who wanted to bring him in and Bruce was reluctant. Has anybody else seen similar?

Think Celtic were set to sign McGinn at the time but were penny pinching with Hibs so we swooped in to get him. It was one of the reasons Brendan Rodgers cited for leaving Celtic later on. It may have been Bruce, we were heavily linked to an Aberdeen centre half whose name escapes me that summer too, so obviously we were scouting the Scottish league.

Hope SJM performs well tonight . Think he’s badly missed jack in last few weeks and his performances been well below the expectations he’s set now. No goals and I don’t think assists either.
Been playing well for Scotland though so I’ve been kept loyalty and he’s still in my dream team....need a couple of goals / assists tonigh though or he’s getting dropped

We certainly do.

And I thought he made a couple of uncharacteristic errors, losing possession last night. I suspect due to a little fatigue; he needs a breather soon.

Still, he's bloody brilliant.

How would that work?
Play 3 Centre Backs, with wingbacks
3-4-2-1?
