Pundit explains why Jack Grealish is not a good fit for Arsenal

Date published: Friday 31st July 2020 10:10 Former Liverpool defender Glen Johnson thinks Aston Villa’s Jack Grealish is “not established” enough to play for Arsenal. The 24-year-old made 33 Premier League appearances before Villa were relegated to the Championship back in 2016. But on their top-flight return, the playmaker Grealish has been one of the Premier League’s standout performers. He scored eight goals and added six assists in 36 appearances.He has been heavily linked with Manchester United over the past year, while Arsenal have now reportedly joined the chase. However, former England international Johnson does not think Grealish would be a good fit for Mikel Arteta’s men. “They’re going to need players who know th...

Man Utd great urges Solskjaer to usurp Man City to £41m Nathan Ake

Date published: Thursday 30th July 2020 9:24 Gary Pallister has told Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to bring in a new central defender this summer – and has one name at the top of his list. The Manchester United old boy has hailed the progress Victor Lindelof has made alongside Harry Maguire this season.But he thinks the club still lack quality cover in central defence and has suggested Bournemouth’s Nathan Ake as a suitable investment. Ake has also been linked with a move to former club Chelsea. Reports on Thursday claim Manchester City have had an offer of £41m accepted by the Cherries. Pallister, however, hopes United come up trumps. He argues that even if they miss out, then signing a new centre-half should be a priority. Pallist...

Pundits disagree on whether Grealish will leave Villa amid Man Utd links

Date published: Monday 27th July 2020 1:24 Jack Grealish would find it more “enjoyable” to stay at Aston Villa, claims Paul Merson, but Darius Vassell thinks he must leave if he wants to prove himself in Europe. Grealish has been a standout player in Villa’s first season back in the Premier League. The midfielder scored eight goals – including one on the final day to help keep them up – and provided six assists from 36 appearances. His form has seen him linked heavily with a move to a bigger club. Manchester United reportedly have Grealish on their wishlist for the summer – and the 24-year-old has admitted he is “not sure” what the future holds. However, former Villa star Paul Merson thinks Grealish may be better suited to st...

Tony Adams hits out at Arteta in bizarre dig over Ozil treatment

Date published: Sunday 26th July 2020 1:47 Arsenal legend Tony Adams has hit out at Mikel Arteta over the treatment of Gunners playmaker Mesut Ozil. The German playmaker has failed to make an appearance since the Premier League restart. Leading to talk that his time at Arsenal is over. But Adams has questioned Arteta, claiming it is the Spaniard’s job to get the best out of a very talented player.Adams told Stadium Astro: “I think I’m going to give him the benefit of the doubt. He’s a very laid-back kind of guy, he doesn’t get too flustered with anything to be honest with you. “He just goes a little bit – what we would call in our day – going through the motions. Bu players are very different today, they’re not questioned i...

Ferdinand calls for ‘tremendous’ Man Utd swoop to revolutionise attack

Date published: Tuesday 21st July 2020 6:15 Rio Ferdinand says his former side Manchester United should consider a move for “tremendous” Wolves striker Raul Jimenez to revolutionise their attack. United have shown real attacking promise since the Premier League’s restart, with Anthony Martial, Mason Greenwood and Marcus Rashford all in fine form. However, United lacked fluency against Chelsea on Sunday with the former two only featuring as substitutes. Rashford had chances of his own but struggled to affect proceedings without Martial and Greenwood. Indeed, despite the trio’s fantastic form, speculation remains about whether United will sign another striker before next season. Speaking to BT Sport, Ferdinand said he thinks Me...

Man Utd legend goes against the norm by backing David de Gea

Date published: Tuesday 21st July 2020 10:34 Man Utd legend Paul Scholes has backed David de Gea and claims that Spanish goalkeeper will “be back”. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side saw their impressive 19-match unbeaten run come to a disastrous end, after a heavy defeat to Chelsea in the FA Cup semi-final at Wembley. A much-changed United side put in an uncharacteristically disjointed display, with De Gea making costly errors.The Spaniard could have kept out Olivier Giroud’s opener and was then guilty of a real howler as he left Mason Mount’s long-range strike somehow beat him. United captain Harry Maguire’s own goal summed up a difficult day for the Red Devils. They can now concentrate on their fight for a top-four finish. De G...

Liverpool hailed for ‘shrewd’ coup of young ace backed to star under Klopp

Date published: Monday 20th July 2020 10:06 Billy Beane, the mastermind of the ‘Moneyball’ system of recruitment used in the USA, says young Liverpool defender Sepp van den Berg could prove to be a “shrewd” signing. Van den Berg signed from Dutch side PEC Zwolle last summer for a fee that could rise to £4.4million. The 18-year-old has made four senior appearances in his debut season, including three in the EFL Cup. Indeed, he was thrust into the limelight alongside his fellow youngsters when Liverpool had to play two games in two days, including facing Aston Villa in the League Cup. Speaking to the Liverpool Echo, Beane – whose feats in Major League Baseball were adapted into a film – praised the work done by Liverpool in bri...

Pundit expects one marquee signing from Klopp at Liverpool

Date published: Monday 20th July 2020 9:39 Michael Owen expects Liverpool to make one marquee signing this summer after sealing their first top-flight title triumph for 30 years. The financial impact of the coronavirus pandemic has been costly and Owen says that along with their tight squad means that Jurgen Klopp is unlikely to be too active in the transfer market. Klopp admitted last week that ‘these were uncertain times’: “To strengthen the squad you need money and these are uncertain times. Obviously, uncertain times means for some clubs we cannot do what we would do in non-uncertain times.” Owen thinks the champions also have such a tight-knit squad that Klopp will be reluctant to make too many alterations even for “squa...

Shearer says now is the time, as Solskjaer issues De Gea warning

Date published: Monday 20th July 2020 7:41 Alan Shearer says that now is the time for Dean Henderson to replace David de Gea as Manchester United’s No.1 keeper. United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has consistently spoken of his unwavering belief in De Gea, who has made a number of errors over the last 18 months and has Dean Henderson snapping at his heels having shone on loan at Sheffield United. None more so than in his Wembley performance in which United were brushed aside 3-1 by Chelsea in the FA Cup semi-final. The Spaniard put in an error-strewn performance in which he allowed a long-range Mason Mount strike sneak past him just moments into the second half. And Shearer thinks it may be time for Solskjaer to turn to the youn...

Pundit claims no other team ‘goes through the gears as quick’ as Man Utd

Date published: Friday 17th July 2020 10:40 Rio Ferdinand doubts that any other team “goes through the gears as quick” as Man Utd after they beat Crystal Palace 2-0. Marcus Rashford opened the scoring in first-half stoppage time before Anthony Martial wrapped up the win with 12 minutes left. The Red Devils are now back level on points with Leicester and a point behind Chelsea. They face the Blues in an FA Cup semi-final on Sunday. And Ferdinand was impressed with what he saw from “dangerous” United side at Selhurst Park. As they maintained their 19-match unbeaten run in all competitions. “Listen, Man United seem like a team that can score at any given moment,” Ferdinand said on BT Sport. “Other teams will be watching that and...

The Spurs talisman underlined his status as one of the world’s elite strikers by notching his 200th goal for the club on Wednesday. But rumours over his future have grown following Tottenham’s Champions League final defeat.The England forward has been mooted as a target for Manchester United over the last couple of years. Juventus have also been touted as suitors. Kane did little to end the rumours when in March he told Jamie Redknapp on Instagram he would consider leaving if he thought the north London club were going backwards. When asked about staying at Tottenham for...

Schmeichel recalls serious plea for Man Utd to avoid De Gea swoop

Date published: Thursday 16th July 2020 4:52 Peter Schmeichel has revealed that he had serious doubts about David de Gea before Manchester United signed the Spaniard in 2011. De Gea moved to Old Trafford from Atletico Madrid to replace outgoing club stalwart Edwin van der Sar. The stopper initially struggled, though, and faced heavy criticism for his poor performances. Across Europe in Germany, however, was a 25-year-old Manuel Neuer who, after recently impressing against United in the Champions League, followed a similar fate to De Gea in agreeing an exciting move to Bayern Munich. Speaking to United’s Unscripted series, Schmeichel revealed how he was desperate for his former club to avoid De Gea and instead swoop for Neuer....
