IF he wants to go I have no problem with it. He's been great for us and I'd understand the need to move on. We'd make a fortune and emerge a stronger unit (hopefully).

If he wants to stay, that's obviously also great.

I don't like the idea of a club like ours shitting itself over a transfer between Manchester United and Borussia Dortmund.

Give it another year and Iím sure we wonít be again

I could forgive any disappointment he felt at the time because it had looked like we'd have to sell him to pay the leccy bill, and so there was little chance we'd be investing in a much depleted side from the end of the previous season to fulfil any dreams he harboured with us. And in that run of utter garbage between Hull and Preston, he was no worse than many others, he perhaps stood out more because we knew his capabilites when he's firing.

Two years later and things are considerably different, we've plenty of 50p's for the meter. But we'll see, I'm hoping the changes in our recruitment set-up are for how best we can complement him, not replace him.

Sky are reporting that Sancho is staying with them for this season.
This canít be good for us keeping Jack 😒

Probably not, but it does mean United will be increasingly desperate now.

If you believe what's written in the press (pinch of salt time), they won't pay Dortmund's asking price of £109m for Sancho or our asking price of £80m for Jack.

If that holds any truth we should wind them up by telling them that the price for Jack is now £109m and will increase with every day that they don't meet it, due to the lost time in us finding a replacement.

Fuck the fuckers.

The last line is good enough for me.

When I saw Declan Riceís price as being £65m the other day, I was sure that would make Jack a nine digit signing.

Iíd just like us to publicly tell Man U to go forth.

Publicly tell a team that haven't declared an interest in our player that they can't have him?

How desperate and small time would that make us look?

Thereís been more pandemics in the last two years than goals between Benteke and Davis.

Do you not think much of Davis then?

Confused as to why some Man U fans seem convinced that Lingard is what is needed to seal the deal.

That's the same Lingard who managed fewer assists than Jota, a man who spent more of last season conditioning his beard than playing football. He also scored precisely one goal, and that was only because it was the last minute of the season and the opposition goalkeeper was already onto his third pint at Gatwick Wetherspoons, waiting for his flight to Benidorm. This is a bloke who had a spell on loan at Birmingham fucking City and was so atrocious that they haven't even retired his shirt number.

That's the player they think will convince us to sell our best player for half the fee they paid for Harry "Wandering Feet" Maguire?

Nah, you're alright lads, thanks.

We'll sign Lingard now, after that rant, won't we? 😕

must admit I havenít seen much of Sancho. If he was to be allowed to go for 109m, where do people see Grealishís potential fee sitting in relation to that? Which is the better player?

I also read the Guardian article and Utd bleating that clubs put a premium on fees cos itís them. Obviously overlooking how they bully clubs to try and get players on the cheap, Ďbecause itís Utdí I guess itís all hypothetical really, as you canít say Sanchoís value is 109m as Utd havenít paid it yet.

I've had a read of Redcafe. Its hard ro get wound up by their stunning arrogance, as it's wrapped up in equal parts ignorance. Plastics are best ignored for that reason.

if they want Grealish then it is £80 million cash only - I dont want any of their players in part exchange - I remember how City did us a deal for Stephen Ireland!!

Lingard is currently on about £100k per week - I just hope that we dont let them bully us into taking him in part exchange for Jack (but I could understand if Jack wanted the move)

It's one of those things that is hard to judge. Different skill-sets, circumstances etc. Would Sancho be able to give to Villa what Grealish gives  to Villa? Would Grealish be as affective for Dortmund as Sancho is?

If it does need to be reduced to "who is better", Sancho. He's achieved more, at a much younger age, at a higher level. But if they are taking about £100m for him, £70 - 80m for Grealish feels about right. Certainly not much less. If we choose to sell, which hopefully we won't.

Davis still may prove people wrong due to his age but Benteke has lost the plot since us.
