Declan Rice.
Now there’s a player I wish we were able to go for.
Might be a year or two yet though.

Agreed. Watched him a few times last season and he definitely made West Ham’s midfield tick. £65m though - if that’s the case, then it’s 9 digits for Jack.

If Keinan Davis played for any other PL team we’d all think he is shit

Nail on head.

I had a ex missus who could hold balls up quite well - doesn’t mean she could score goals in the premier league.

He’s awful - but I’m not concerned as Smiffy won’t have him anywhere near that line up in 5 weeks.

Bore off with the Davis chat.  We get it, you don’t rate him.  The Davis thread might be a better place to keep repeating this than the transfer thread.

Keinan Davis is like Emile Heskey. He does everything a striker should do except score goals. Him and Wesley might be able to work together but 2 up front is beyond Dean's comprehension.

Ryan Sessegnon is available form Spurs but seems on his way to Ajax. I'd love for us to be in for him at LB/WB. Massive upgrade on Targett.

I like him, but I think his future is left wing not left back. If we could get him full time I think he’d be a great signing.

Someone said Declan Rice earlier in the thread. That would be an awful signing. I struggle to see what he offers except physicality and limited ball skills.

Declan Rice is the new Mark Noble, ie basically wank. Maddison is a bloody good player, if we put him with Jack we'd be knocking on the top six. Mount is decent and could become very good, but he's not in the same class as the other two.

Davis is the new Ruud Gullit and it's just the blind that can't see it.

Declan Rice is the player you describe as “he puts in a shift” but generally in doing so achieves the square root of fuck all. If he was Finland or the Faroes and not English he’d be playing in the Azerbaijan Premier League.

He’s getting regular outings for the national side so he must be achieving better than the square root of FA.

The English game always has a blind spot for a player like Rice, he'll get ruthlessly exposed in an all important knockout game and they'll move onto the next plodding giant.

Declan Rice is fawned upon by the London media. If he played for a team like, say Sheffield United, he wouldn’t even get a mention let alone an England call up.
