    Fair enough, I just don't see him at that standard and think he feels comfortable where he is ...

    ... I think he'll do a 'Le Tissier' and stay at Spurs.

    He's 28, hasn't won a major honour and may never.

    Lewandowski I think is a better number 9 personally. I also think Haland is better. I like Kane but dont think he is at that level.

    Haaland is a different kind of player, but he’s going to be better. As an out and out striker Kane is marginally better right now I’d say.

    Lewandowski is a pure finisher but doesn’t do the work Kane does.

    Let’s be honest, all 3 are pretty ****ing tasty.

    Funny, I see the exact opposite mate. I thought Utd would be the perfect fit the way they play. I couldn't see him at city with all that pfaffing around before the ball gets played forward. Basically a more direct Utd would benefit him, IMO.

    The sheer amount of chances City make in a game is crazy though. If you think Jesus, who is really average gets a decent number of goals and his positional sense is appealing, Kane would nag hatfuls.

    If Kane joined Chitty, with De Bruyne Grealish and Sterling ( to name but 3) laying on chances for him...he would score loads of goals. Undoubtedly he is a world class striker, just below the Messi, Ronaldo level.

    If Jebbison goes to Everton would they loan him out, to Sunderland, for a season ....

    I’d make it part of his training.

    Any whispers of deals in the pipeline? Surely we're in for another 2 or 3?

    Reckon we’ll be looking for a couple of permanents so we have a bit of slack for loans to cover injuries in January

    He's a ****e forward so what makes you think he'd make a good sweeper is beyond me.

    I'd say we're juggling half a dozen balls, at the moment, of which I'd feel confident at least two will come off.

    Some of them are awaiting decisions from the player, like the ex-Everton keeper who apparently Pickford recommended, Jack McIntyre.

    Plus Jebbison who'll probably move on the last day.

    Others are dependent on our own players leaving, Grigg and Wright, but they're so up in the air that anything could happen.

    There's also the possibility, of course, of a surprise and someone coming in as yet not mentioned ...

    ... I've been told, yet again, we're looking at a player from France but I've not seen anything whatsoever to back that up ...

    ... I think the lad's winding me up but I'd have thought he has better things to do <laugh>

    Going to Everton will probably increase his chances of him coming here. Are we still after him like? Weve getting Broadhead havnt we?

    There was a suggestion the club wanted to get all of our season's business done in this window so it's less disruptive.

    If that's the case I think we'd still take Jebbison but there's Broadhead to consider now as well.

    If Grigg could be eradicated it would make things clearer.

    I'd swap the word eradicate for exterminate :emoticon-0148-yes:

    I'm trying to remain polite but the situation really winds me up.

    The player is a disgrace imo.

    Fair enough he doesn't want to be here but at least pretend to be interested or take an offer and go FFS.
