    Spoke to my mate Aston Villa fans, he thinks he’s not that good, not our level of expectation.

    he is 24, If he isnt united quality already then whats the point?

    I hear he is an engine? If so then Im all for it for nothing more than 30 million.

    He has good quality, not just a good engine but some experience in the PL, with a team that he is settled in would be better than moving at this point. He has made good progress at Villa, should continue to do so next year.

    Absolutely loved him when he was playing for my local team here in Scotland - Hibernian. That goal just epitomises what sort of player he is.

    Hope he has a wonderful season in the Prem.

    McGeoch always looked good next to him as well, but it’s never really panned out for him since then.

    Dylan McGeouch’s main issue was that he was very injury prone. Definitely a very good footballer and someone that controlled a lot of games from deep but staying fit was the issue. I’d take him back at Hibs in a heartbeat though.

    McGeouch - McGinn - Allan

    That was a fantastic midfield for us. They all clicked with each other and developed into one of our best midfield for quite some time. McGeouch was the deep lying playmaker, McGinn the box 2 box, combative and driving midfielder and Allan was the number 10 playmaker.

    Fergie has suggested McGinn would be a good addition.
    No way are we getting Longstaff.

    He'd be absolutely terrific in the kind of pressing side ole wants to build. Very mobile. Good quality too.

    Looks like a Moyes level recommendation from SAF here. Would be funny if this actually worked.

    Whilst I really like him, I don’t think we should splash 50m on him.

    No chance they are selling, keep an eye on him for next year once Villa have been relegated.

    The fact we are in for Longstaff and McGinn shows how desperate we are.
    Importantly how useless Woodward has been this window. 2 weeks away and we are here..

    I watched his highlights reel against Charlton and he reminds me of Milner. Technically sound,hardworking individual.
    Couldn't be any worse than Fred,though we'd like to aspire higher.

    If you're young, British, and you've kicked a ball professionally, you're apparently worth £50 million these days.

    Has to be made up nonsense, so Alex Ferguson wants United to sign him for 50 million, this is the same sir Alex that kept banging on about no value in the market.

    Why don’t we go for a normal midfielder? We need to aim for Saul or better, not McGuin

    I've never watched him play. Looking at his stats, it seems his main strengths are dribbling and pressing/winning possession back. He also got 16 goals+assists last season. That clip and your comment support that. I think having a ball winner that is a good dribbler could come in handy for fast breaks and counter attacks.

    Athletico are one of the toughest teams to negotiate with. You either pay the release clause or there is no negotiation. His release clause is around 150m. His value isn’t even half that imo.

    For the style of play and pace Ole wants, I cant see why we arent all over this guy. What am i missing? No pl experience? I cant see how that could be a deal breaker. Matic has planty of PL experience. Mata also. Would chose this guy over those two in a blink of an eye

    All because they have shit names.

    Our fans are absolute clowns. If they both had fancy names they'd be highly rated.

    Scotland seem to have a fairly decent spine, with Robinson, Mctominay, that striker guy that signed for £20m.. would be good to see them make a serious euros qualification push.

    Quality player. All the people slating our supposed interest obviously didn't watch him in the Championship. Not surprising me one bit to see him shining right now.

    Are you waiting for Longstaff to score next before finding another post to prove whatever point you are trying to make. Clown definitely.

    No I already know both are excellent. Try watching football rather judging by names.

    Furthermore, nothing to do with goals. Try watching the fill performance and not just stats.
