  1. It is about proving it. Maddison has proven he can bang in some goals in the Champs. He now has to prove he can do the business up a level.
  2. Had Madders already been in the Prem then maybe. But he hasn''t been. And he has a much lesser record for England at youth level. So, again, he has more to prove.
  3. Well they are though, aren''t they? Cook is slightly younger than Maddison but already has a more impressive CV. Not saying there''s masses in it but Maddison has more to prove.
  4. Good job you''re not signing the players on then.
  5. Just on his attitude, I''d rather see a player p1ssed off because he hasn''t started etc than a player who is happy to warm the bench (or not even be in the squad) and carry on picking up his healthy wages.
  6. 1. He won''t want to drop to a midtable Champs club. 2. He won''t want to drop to a midtable Champs club that can only pay peanuts in comparison to his mega bucks contract.
  7. I do agree that Maddison could and did slow down play. Not all the time. But sometimes he was guilty of it.
  8. Not really seen a better side than England yet. Yes they''ve played a couple of weaker sides but that''s the group stages for you. They still need beating. They have some great movement upfront and an absolutely deadly striker.
  9. But the Championship is a much stronger division than League 1. And they are all players who can and have scored goals. People pay money for goals.
  10. Is £3m derisory for a guy with just 1 season of League 1 football on his CV?
  11. It''s not like he''s unheard of. All the big clubs have had a look and not been desperate to go for him. Just go back to January, he was already having a good season (and didn''t get better 2nd half of season) yet nobody in the Prem thought "This is the lad to keep us out the bottom 3" and certainly nobody thought "This is the lad to get us into Europe". So people are thinking the lad is a good player but nobody is thinking the lady is outstanding. Getting £20m (or more) for someone in their 20s who has only got 1 good season on their CV is good business.
  12. His potential is not massive. He''s got a shot at being a decent Premier League player - which is a still a very high level. But he''s not top, top drawer.
  13. And the news come just a day after JT announces he''s not staying on at Villa. Probably totally unrelated.
  14. Not a lot in. Maddison probably has more of an eye for goal but Grealish covers the ground better. Grealish did have a strong 2nd half of the season. Maddison had a few flatter games.
  15. Hope Liverpool win but very tough to call. The Real Madrid team is just full of big game players, players who have won it all and know how to win it. But nobody wants to play against Mane, Firmino and Salah. Despite his disciplinary record Ramos is an excellent defender. As good as anyone playing the game and probably the best. A very intriguing battle ahead.
  16. Angus had a couple of errors but overall he had a very good season. Made some great saves and his distribution is top notch. It would be a huge result to get him back here.
  17. Shelvey has been one of the best midfielders in the Prem in recent months and has kept himself out of the Refs notebook. So perhaps it could be argued he has matured and upped his game. Also, there are players in that squad who have put in some horrific tackles this season - Kane being one - and people haven''t taken much issue. Think Shelvey might not have been given a fair look, especially with a squad seemingly defender heavy and midfield light.
