Grealish doesn't start because your manager doesn't.have the balls to bench Sterling and put him on field. João Felix is similar, this dude is playing with Carvalho in advance position and Renato as winger. Put João as second striker and only one of Pereira or William and they would be much better.

But even that, Neves is never the option to shield them or play over Moutinho or Sanches

Yeah but, yeah but, yeah but...

Stop moving the goal posts. A player not starting for their country is not an indication of ability.

Every **** PL club is asking for 45m+ for every average player. Wish the rest of the teams outside the top 6 werent getting 120m every year and were still poor. Top 6 should be having way more of the pie anyway.
The cash split is what makes the prem healthy and vital, the alternative is the atrophy we’re seeing in la liga atm.

It's not dumb at all. We are not saying Neves is an awful signing because he doesn't start for Portugal.
I just think a player that can't get in the team ahead of players like Danilo, Sanches, Moutinho and Carvahlo is not worth 45m.
It's silly. Neves doesn't play as clearly the coach wants a different style of footballer shielding the defence.

Felix can't get in over Jota.

This one hasn't gone beyond contact with wolves maybe we waiting for Xhaka to be sold but no updates about this deal.

Him starting or not change nothing it's manager preference.
Arteta/Edu might stop at Lokonga and Ben White, and not add on top for CM, we don't know. Maybe it was between Lokonga and Neves, the club only prepared to go with Neves if Wolves didn't get greedy. Lokonga is a deep lying playmaker.

Lokonga is not a deep lying playmaker and we won't be selling Xhaka without replacing him. The Athletic have already said Lokonga is backup for Partey.

No it been confirmed from Athletic that we looking for 2 midfielders Lokanga is one for future and not to replace Xhaka. We losing Xhaka Guendouzi Torreira and lost Ceballos who back to Madrid

I really don't know where they get that from. Sambi is nothing like Partey. Much more technical en less power. He would suit the 'Xhaka role' better in our team than the 'Partey role'.

More or less. Witsel is everything Xhaka wishes he would be.

Sambi is imo more suited as a link-up player between defence & attack and someone who can act as the last line of defence if needed. That's also how he played for RSCA, where Cullen / Trebel was the more powerfull partner.

You did just define Partey pretty much.

It's silly. Neves is a different type of player to Danilo and Carvalho.

There are too many examples of where this line of Argument is flawed. Add Sancho and Camavinga to the list of players who can't be worth their asking prices due to their involvement (or lack of) in their national teams.
