Blimey, it looks like I’ve called it right again.
It doesn’t happen very often, so please allow me to gloat a little bit and say “I told you so” again.
The important stuff then and following the Dresden game, Bruce gave an interview, in which he basically says we aren’t selling anyone we don’t want to;
“The one thing that the pair of them have said is that nobody is for sale. That’s music to my ears. We don’t want to lose our best players. We all know in football that unfortunately these things happen. But we will now be doing our utmost to make sure these things do not happen and not let them go anywhere.”
To be honest, that last line sounds a bit ominous.
From that comment I’d be inclined to think that Jack Grealish may have had his head turned and does want to leave to go Spurs.
Perish the thought, but if he does, he’ll have gone down in my estimation of him.
Reading between the lines, I’m guessing that if Levy offers stupid money (£40 million would probably do), we’ll probably let him leave.
And if that was to happen, I doubt I could complain too much.
The club is more important than any one player.
But the good news is that Levy won’t go to that money.
Spurs have enough on their plate with building the new ground.
So basically, Grealish is going nowhere.
Don’t worry Jack, have another good season for us and they’ll be back in again next year.
You’ll be a better player and more likely to meet your European ambitions.
