Maybe Grealish signed a 5yr deal to build something at Villa? He’s from the area, a Villa die hard himself. Those who know him know he close to his family and doesn’t really want to leave the Midlands? He’s a Villa legend, and perhaps, with the financial power of the owners, can match his ambitions. Why would he go? Playing in front of 74,000 tourists ?

Villa wanted £80m in the summer, pre-contract and before he went from great form into arguably world class form - they'll want £100m for him now.

Why would United pay that (I rate Grealish highly I'll add) when they have Bruno in the exact position Grealish will want? Or Rashford if they wanted to play him LWF? They also have DvdB

They'll want a RW/RWF OR a Pogba replacement, Grealish is neither

Ozil has not been ousted by Arteta, he’s not playing because of his comments on the current genocide of Uighur Muslims by China. Arsenal won’t support their player because of the economic effects it would have on their club.

What, is everyone in China against Ozil ,then? Thats one side of the story isn't it? More to the point, Ozil is not playing because of his FORM and WORKRATE, which have been dire. Cant hide behind any politics when you ain't doing it on the pitch. He is a liability. A brilliant gifted amazing liability. When Saachi to off Roberto and put on Dino, everyone wondered what that was about...
Yes it is ironic that Arsenal put selling merchandise in China before their team when in fact the Chinese virus has done more harm to their financial standing than anything Ozil could ever do. Removed

31/12/2020 09:53:43 21 31

More likely that the reason Ozil isn’t playing is because of his attitude rather than any political statement or opinion. It can’t be a coincidence that an experienced coach like Unai Emery didn’t play him too often either.
No argument that Ozil is technically gifted, but without the correct attitude and work rate, that talent is wasted.

Absolutely I agree, sickening that in this world that "funds" can buy the silence. The club could easily make a stance but chosen the easy option. Well done to Ozil for maintaining his dignity and standing up for the right cause. Premier League clubs will just about take any funds, funds, funds and don't want awkward questions. Think twice next time you buy that shirt and give them more funds.

Ozil isn't playing because his numbers over the last few years have been atrocious.

2017/18 - 26 PL games, 4 goals, 8 assists
2018/19 - 26 PL games, 5 goals, 2 assists
2019/20 - 18 PL matches, 1 goal, 2 assists

That drop off is an embarrassment. 4 assists from an obscenely paid attacking midfielder over 44 games, across two seasons, as an absolute disgrace. He's played his way out of the team.

No, it's simply a joke which emphasises the hypocrisy of many fans.
Moans about the cost of tickets, the lack of talent in the England team, how young players miss out, are frequent complaints.
If foreigners were employed, at great cost, rather than UK workers in other industries, would people be happy about the situation? Probably not, but football is considered to be different

Maybe Grealish signed a 5yr deal to build something at Villa? He’s from the area, a Villa die hard himself. Those who know him know he close to his family and doesn’t really want to leave the Midlands? He’s a Villa legend, and perhaps, with the financial power of the owners, can match his ambitions. Why would he go? Playing in front of 74,000 tourists ?

More likely that the reason Ozil isn’t playing is because of his attitude rather than any political statement or opinion. It can’t be a coincidence that an experienced coach like Unai Emery didn’t play him too often either.
No argument that Ozil is technically gifted, but without the correct attitude and work rate, that talent is wasted.

Pogba a regular performer for United? More like useless physical presence. Even Kleberson and Anderson were more productive.

He is becoming a massive headache for the club.

Pogba been telling us for the last two years he wants to go to Real Madrid, now he's going back to Juventus. What makes me laugh is that both Clubs have never mentioned they want him.

Don’t think his final destination is nailed on anywhere yet, and it’s pretty rare that any club mentions anyone they actually want. It’s hardly a genius negotiation tactic to come out and tell everyone exactly who you want to buy?!

Ozil needs to move on. Anywhre where he can play football. He hasn't played since March and I just don't think he deserves that kind of treatment from a club who have managed the situation terribly. Dare I say Pogba might stay if he thinks Utd can mount a title challenge. Otherwise I see him going to PSG rather than Dele Ali. Sheffield Utd need a striker. Someone at the club needs to sort it

Pogba wants to play for all these top clubs. Sadly none of these clubs want to entertain him. What annoys me is that he hasn’t been dumped in the reserves and told to bugger off after so many claims he wants to play for somebody else. Bad for morale, over-rated and overpaid. I will tell you the best midfielder in England at the moment. Harvey Barnes. What a future he has!!!

Pretty sure Fernandes is the best midfielder in the country at the moment. His numbers don’t lie.

Ozil has not been ousted by Arteta, he’s not playing because of his comments on the current genocide of Uighur Muslims by China. Arsenal won’t support their player because of the economic effects it would have on their club.

It's his agent's job to make himself even more money, therefore I have no doubt that when Pogba does move it will not be the last we hear of him. His agent will try to move him to another club so he can make more money. Maybe even back to MUFC, just for the fun of it.

Sean Dyche to Palace at the end of the season. Rumour has it the new owners are reluctant to hand him the treasure chest following a couple of ineffective signings eg. (club record of 15mill plus bonuses for Ben Gibson from Boro who is now at Norwich). A certain Mr Gerard is being lined up and he is keen to get back to Lancashire.

Modern footballers like Pogba and Ozil are perfect examples of why a whole generation of football fans, are fed up reading articles and hearing about them on a never ending basis. They may have far more talent that players like Roy Keane or Ray Parlour, but players from that era weren't driven by image, likes, profile or their hair cuts. I'd take Keane and Parlour above those two show ponies.

And slagging off the Romford Pele's barnet is below the belt. He was well known to take great pains with it, bit of a joke at the club that he had so many hair products.

Yeah but the clubs will always do when they sell the shirts and sponsorship that comes with these players.

I suspect Pogba and Ozil sold more shirts in a day when signing than Keane and Parlours careers put together... football is a business, always has been since the first fee was paid for a player

They are no different than many footballers of past generations, you just read about it more now
