Not sure Sarrs2 is what we need.

Weíd get lots of goals from the confusion amongst opposition players when their coach instructs them to mark Sarr.

IF we lose Grealish to City, would anyone take one of Mahrez or Bernardo as makeshift?

It's just, fuck me, what are we paying the scouts for? Have we really scoured the world and concluded that Brentford and Norwich are the only places to find talent? Nothing against Sarr or Cantwell, but if Jack goes we'll need to go all out to replace him well enough to attack that vulnerable top 6-8 this season, and we'd have the resources to do it. Instead, 'let's consolidate midtable'? If this is our idea of replacing him, frankly no wonder Jack's leaving.

No it never seems to work out as itís pretty demoralising for the player.

The only player who might keep me remotely interested in next season is if we signed Saint Maximin.

Here's £45m rising to £50m you sports direct ****.

Desperately underwhelming, I agree. I just fervently hope you are wrong, mate.

So the scouting system is not working because we've signed a player from Norwich? Jesus, what's the matter with people.

I want Maddison.  Unfortunately his price to us will have just gone up by 30% and the only reason he may have considered joining is about to sign for City.

Letís hope we can do a Leicester and find some gems.

I donít think either would come and as Chicago says if they did their heads wouldnít be right.
But in any other circumstances absolutely Iíd take either.

If you buy one player from Norwich, that's one thing. If you buy two, basically hoping their Championship attack will get you top 6, you're either very lucky or you haven't been perspicacious enough.

But you think we can achieve our stated ambitions exclusively with second tier talent when our rivals are signing stars from Sevilla? Jesus, some people.

Bernardo is a super player. Would love him at Villa, but he is never going to come.

Sarr would be a really good signing. Liverpool are after him for a reason. I am with you on Cantwell though Monty, I am not convinced. I would sooner see us go for someone like Damsgaard that has that potential to kick on.

I guess like that time we were promoted with Mings, Grealish and McGinn in the side. Or we signed Watkins & Konsa from Brentford. Ridiculous to think that a Championship side might have more than one half decent player.

But you're acting as if that's exactly what is going to happen. Last time I heard, we were trying to buy a lad from Germany and Southampton's best player. Some people just need to calm down.
