We might get decent money for Lingard given how well he’s doing. 20-30M even? Maybe 20, he’s only a year on his contract.

It would be great if we turned around and spent that on a good 20M relatively unknown player who turns out to be excellent, like Leicester regularly does. You could get a handy DM or something like that in France, no bother.

But we won’t.

...we could have picked up Rüdiger for 20M while Lampard was still there. Not a chance now under Tuchel. Another missed opportunity.

We're apparently talking to West Ham about Rice. Looks like we're using Lingard as leverage.

I need to watch Rice properly cos I don't rate him, and I think I'm wrong

I think he's very good.
I'm not sure if he can be world class.

Not sure about him - is he really any good?

I like Rice. It sounds corny, but he does have leadership quality: he’s west ham’s captain despite being young, and he does get into games. Some people seem to think he doesn’t have great technical quality, but I think that’s underestimating him, and he’s still definitely growing as a player. But I’m sure a well run club could find someone who ticked most of the same boxes for half the money, or even less than.

Kane to leave Spurs if they don't get CL football



It's all down to Jose to get top 4 or else Kane is gone and Spurs are midtable

He looks technically sound to me. We need leadership qualities in our team. We're lacking in that atm.

If Lingard keeps up this form we should get Rice as a straight swap, no fee

Massive upgrade on Fred, great engine and great attitude. He'll never be world class but a DM doesn't need to be.
