...is making the Mings deal look more and more better. It appears that Clyne has signed for £10 million, with add ons. To have brought Mings in for 10K and sold him for the amount we have is ridiculous...but BRILLIANT
...for us in the first half of the season last year but when I see how Liverpool have just paid 12.5 million for Clyne, a now established Premiership quality right back, who's an England international, and that we're getting with add ons 10 million for Mings it makes me think that Howe is as the clip below says...
Am soon to be moving to a flat in Colchester and am after a good monthly broadband/TV package deal and wondered who's best, network wise?? With respect of price, overall quality and varied channels...I know there's Sky, BT, Virgin, Now TV and I'm sure others. Who's best?
...that Steve Bruce wasn't able to quote on who would win our Championship play off semi final with Norwich as he was going to be playing a planned round of golf with Mick at the end of June, given that Hull will be playing in the Championship next season.
...the fact of the England Under 21 squad and I know their are complaints about youth coming through the system of the Premier League BUT looking at who's in the squad, for me, there's a lot of talent in there. I saw who Southgate had omitted like Barkley, the Ox, Wilshere and Shaw and thought we NEED THEM but now looking at the chosen squad there is some good talent there. I know the names I've mentioned have become to some extent first team players but if they are of age then I thought why not use them. But hey, I think England U21's could do well this Summer.
Does a player who has contributed little, by way of fact, to not winning trophies for his club deserve to be believing that he warrants such ridiculous sums as over £100,000 a week? Yes, a week. This scary world of football today really concerns me. To have such belief above your station at such a young age is beyond me and I know, clearly, he's been wrongly lead by his agent. For me, personally speaking, he shouldn't be looking at anything better than 50K a week and that's being generous. I know people will say but this is because of the Premier League money but where's the due reality when it comes suitably to grassroots football investment and of the atrocious quality that there is of how young lads in the UK play football. On relatively old knackered pitches, lack of equipment, tired changing room areas... I know it's the old adage of the misdirection of money in football but why does a youngster believe he's worth so much....?
