      Wouldn't say there's anything controversial about Rice!  Incredible player at a young age. Imagine that he wouldn't come cheap but if you look at the signing from an investment point of view there's a chance he could give us 10 years at a very high level. English too which means he'd count towards our homegrown quota


      Rice is a quality player but will cost a lot of money - if we are spending that much on a guy for the middle of the park then I would prefer it to be Bellingham - he is imo a more dynamic player and would also add a bit more goal threat

      Rice is top quality but I agree I'd prefer Bellingham who I think will be genuinely world class.

      Both are awesome. Both will be expensive. Both are safe long term investments. If your going to spend BIG money, these dudes are about as safe an option we could find. Would love to have either.

      Bellingham would walk right into our 4-3-3. Rice could too, but wouldn't be as attacking minded. Rice an Fab in a 4-2-3-1 is enough to make any fan stiff though. Would  reate a new dynamic

      With Fabinho being 28 I can’t see the club spending the £70-80mil on Rice

      Haven't you heard, Jürgen is quite happy and doesn't want to sign anyone.

      This sounds sarcastic, but I'm sure it's true. You should check out his press conferences more often.

      Ah I suppose it was always going to happen. Its a bit annoying but you get over it. We had our share do the opposite over the years

      I think we would be a very decent side now with them but it wasnt to be ( Ireland I mean)

      Jürgen will never say anything to bring negativity to the club and will not complain if we dont sign anyone. But if you think he is happy struggling to put out quality sides crack on
