Maddison, where to start.

I'll start by saying this, he's on a long contract, so if he leaves it's because Leicester are happy to let him leave. Why would they be happy to let him leave you ask?

Well, firstly we'll make you stump up good money for him, secondly and most importantly. He's been struggling with a reoccurring hip injust the last two seasons, then we have the "Covid" party" f*** up.

Whilst a player with undoubted talent, in the last two seasons his matchday ratings by fans wouldn't put him in the top 10 performers. In fact, last seasons have him 18th, yeah, 18th.


Personally, to me he comes across as a player who thinks he's made it already. I'm seeing very little progress.

As I said, he is obviously a talented player. But purely on the last two seasons, I'd shed no tears if we cashed in and strengthened the team in several players.

Watch his interviews and you'll see he doesn't think he's made it at all.

Insanely different.

Maddison took Carraghers comments about not scoring enough goals on board. Actually had his best scoring season in the prem last season. Went under the radar a bit.
It's not really, if he listened to people then...

He wouldn't have gone to a casino after leaving the England Camp ill.

Then go to a Covid party hours after being told by his manager they all need to be responsible.

Then when he's disciplined, he very publically goes golfing when he's been told to sit a game out as discipline.

When he's on it he's a great player, but unless he grows up a bit he'll just be someone who ends up wasting his talents.

Hes 24 years old.

Foreign players need time to settle, Arteta might want immediate impact and you have to pay extra for that.

White and Maddison you can rely and put expectations on them the minute they walk into the club. A foreign kid you still give 12-18 months to, Arteta doesn’t have that time.

I pray that you are right.

The funny thing is the more he spends the less time he has in some sense, if he spends the sort of money that’s being bandied about then he’ll need top 4 next season.

Maguire’s average, he’s decent positionally and tells colleagues where to be but Utd have to protect their defence with two dms usually. He also made a number of appalling errors last season that would leave AM in utter disbelief.

Cost more than Van Dijk, More than Dias.
Shocking business. But the pundits back it under this so called English premium.

Can't believe anyone thinks Maguire has been great for Man Utd. Even the majority of their fans seem to think he isn't that much better than Smalling. The improvement in their defence should be mainly credited with the introduction of Wan-Bissaka and the rebirth of Shaw.

I dont feel it with Maddision. He's a good player but I dont get the feeling we are after him.

Have actually come around to this signing as I think he can push on here. There was no doubting his quality, my main concern was his fitness as we’ve already got the likes of Tierney and ESR who always break down.

Madders can be top class here at the carpet imo plus we need a number 10 who can get good numbers in terms of G/A and he can do that.

He's probably got 10 games either way really. Bad start to the season and you'd think he's gone. Until Christmas last year just smashed his credibility. He was lucky to hang on really. It's a shame really because there's definitely talent there with Arteta. He's lacking experience. Let's see though. Our form since Christmas has been good, we are not as rotten as the position in the table showed, although it's worrying that we keep dropping further and further off City, Chelsea, United and Pool.

Imo spot on.
