General Adnan's Football 17/18

Jack Grealish for £40m will do the trick!

On Pulisic, I can only imagine it will be much closer to the Dembele fee than it is to £50m. He's potentially the first US' megastar and Dortmund ain't giving up that sweet sweet merch.

I reckon he ends up at United with some shiney new nike/adidas/kit supplier boots.

Any suggestions? 

If you want a winner, look no further than somebody that has won more FA Cups than your boys have in 35 years. Somebody that always gets stuck in and has that 'never say die' English attitude. Somebody that wears his heart on his sleeve, even when faced with criticism. Somebody that is available on a free.

That somebody, my friend, is Jack Wilshere.

Thought you were better than this...

No thanks. Take Ramsay off you though.

I reckon Wilshere moves to United after Arsenal sign Fellaini, in a Mickael Silvestre/Van Persie situation where Man Utd inevitably end up better off.

I'd prefer Fellaini. Wilshere would offer nothing to United. I'm not sure he offers anything to Arsenal.

Well that situation never happened, as Silvestre joined and subsequent left Arsenal 2 years before Van Persie moved to United.

Sorry, I should've been clear - I know they weren't part of the same deal, but I think it's fair to say that in those particular Arsenal-Man Utd transfer dealings, the van Persie to Utd sale was a little more successful than the Silvestre transfer down south.

It's sad more big name England players don't go abroad like the Linekers, Ray Wilkins types in the 80s.

One thing to remember is that a lot of the Brits moved abroad due to the ban on English clubs in European competition. But yes, you're right. It's hardly surprising though, if you're from the country with the richest league in the world then you're unlikely to move abroad. At least some of the younger players are seeing the benefits from moving abroad nowadays.

Do Barcelona, AC Milan etc actually come in for any of the current England squad?

Players like Kane and Alli occasionally get linked with the likes of Real Madrid and Barcelona but nothing ever materialises. The last England player to try their hand abroad was Joe Hart at Torino a couple of years ago.

In stuff that'll only interest stats nerds like me, @Gus Mears and @Guy Bifkin, FiveThirtyEight have started their World Cup preview with Group A, I'm interested to see how accurate their percentages will be and nobody else will be.
