I’ve got no transfer updates, so no. If we get something that we can tell you about we will but I’ve got no news now.
I think Mason will have a top and long career. Let the boy settle in now first before we talk about Eng and Euros, hos focus has to be on playing more for us, improving and when he plays more for us that’ll happen by itself. He’s just been picked for the U21s so he’s focusing on his football.
I don’t want credit, they’re working hard to improve their game, all done well, Mason’s in his first season, so to have nine goals in not 20 apps is fantastic. Marcus is growing and improving all the time and Anthony has missed eight weeks. I’m impressed by them, working well, on finishing patterns, we want consistency and we’ll see more and more of them.
We’ve played them so many times so we’re gonna be facing a team that know more or less everything about us, we’ve got them in a couple of weeks in the league. We played a decent first half last week, second half was disappointing, but at home we wanna make sure we go through, this tournament is one we dream about winning when we are young, loved my time in finals and winning trophies so we wanna go through
Results give you energy, for me I’m fine, I only have to see you before and after the game... just counting, it’s our 14th game in 45 days.
We’ve still got five or six games before the winter break, it’s relentless, 18 games in less than 60 days which is physically and mentally demanding, we have to energise them.
One good result and performance like Norwich, they felt good about them, bad results have to be used as a motivation, as in we’re not there yet need to keep improving. Just need the rhythm. When I was playing I felt us as a team got rhythm of match rest match rest, I never got that physical thing. Players like Roy, Scholesy and Gary improved.
For me, the most important thing is we get results sorted, get performances on the pitch, gotta be my focus but I know we’ve got the resources, we’ve got the backing if we need to go into the transfer market. We are still up there, so still in a good place.
I would rather he did not. Frustrating but we cannot risk someone taking ground on us considering how slow the board are activating a transfer.I mean i admire that ole doesn't go around speaking about other players but on the other hand, would it hurt him to tease us just a little.
Greenwood for England is media invention. It is not based on reality. He is not yet a first team regular and it is way too early to be mentioning him when there's the likes of Vardy, Ings, Abraham and Rashford that can cover for Kane.Bit of a nothing press conference. What was the part about Mason getting into thr senior England squad? Yes he's doing really well for us but that's a bit premature especially coming into the Euros. England have quite a few on form strikers, albeit Kane is injured but even still I think they have more than enough on-form players there to give Greenwood some room to grow and develop a bit. Then if he continues his progress, he can tried out after the summer into next season if they want.
Probably similar squad to what we were this weekend against Norwich. Eric (Bailly) playing today so he is close to full fitness but still a few days early this one.
