The position we need, good player and that seems a fair price in todays market. Canít help thinking there is better elsewhere though for the money.

£60 million for Phillips is scandalous, a good player and exactly what we need but come on, £60 million is ridiculous.

Thereís got to be better value for money than that elsewhere.

Thatís the going rate though. £20-£30 seems to only get average mid table players now. Many are writing off our £30 million striker and saying heís a mid table player. Iíve seen lots say Mings is not good enough for the next step and he cost a small fortune.

So I guess if we want players for the next stage itís going to cost ridiculous sums. Or we go down the route weíve been on already and take a punt on younger players.

Bentancur has looked decent for Spurs so far and he was only 20 quid....sorry 20m ish. Mid 20s, lots of caps for Uruguay who are top nation in world football and regular for Juventus over last few seasons so they are out there although Gerrard does seem to want prem ready players and that has the same pros and cons as the MON era.

To start: Kalvin Phillips: Aston Villa lead race for £60m Leeds United midfielder
Regardless of the price and the value*, he will go elsewhere than Villa. We are a stalking horse on this one, I suspect.




*As others have said, there has to be better value out there than this.

We are going to buy one, possibly two players in that position. It will all be about giving Coutinho all the protection he needs to do his thing and not have to exhaust himself coming back to defend. The way Liverpool set up allows the front three to be lethal and I can see Gerrard liking that formation. That or how West Ham completely dominated our midfield the other day. Thatís the way to play in the PL.

Wouldn't shock me if Newcastle went for him. Also talk of West Ham if Rice moves.

Itís the area we must address to bridge the gap and we wonít be looking for ďbargainsĒ.
A fit Phillips is a no brainer
Who in the top three would want him given their squads?
Doubt he will go to Manure.

Think the outgoing players pretty much choose themselves this summer:
- AEG (to ??)
- Trez (to Turkey)
- Targett (to Newcastle)
- Ash Young (end of contract)

Then a few maybes:
- Traore isn't suited to our style, and was of debatable utility under Smith's
- Sanson doesn't seem to be rated, could see him going out on loan
- Davis (to Forest if they get promoted)

I think any more would be seen as too big a turnover and would only happen if we got offered silly money.

Incoming:

One central midfielder, a Bissouma type, is surely nailed on this summer. We've all noticed it for ages, we were after Bissouma in January, ... I can't see it not happening really.

Think we might sign another similar midfielder if we can get Sanson out on loan. Or maybe even if we can't.

Think we might see a striker come in. Also got a sneaking feeling that Mings might be replaced. I love him to bits, but he does strike me as a player who's probably not going to play any higher than where we are now.

Find the new Andy Townsend/George Boateng. He has to be out there.

I dunno if that's more about that being what £30m gets you in general, or that's what £30m gets you when it's us spending the money.

A Kevin Richardson will do for me. Would never be the crowdís favourite but weíd miss him when he wasnít playing
