Stan Collymore loves Jack Grealish. It is common knowledge. He said last month that he would be able to become a legend at Manchester United if he ever did join and named him as his player to watch this Premier League season.
The one-sided love relationship continues in the Daily mirror On Tuesday, Collymore paid tribute to the Aston Villa captain for rejecting Tottenham in 2018.
Save your confusion for just a second. We get to it.
“He made the right decision not to move when Spurs wanted him,” he writes. “He would have been in their squad at the time.”
Indeed. Look how much you praised him back then. He would only have been a squad player … for “a cracking club” at a “consistently high level”.
Glad you made the right decision and so on.
‘Since then, Jack has taken a step up and is a serious gamer. Well done he didn’t take this step to get Villa into the top league but he can now play for any elite club. ‚
There’s only one problem: Grealish didn’t reject Tottenham. Of course not, considering he played for a championship club managed by Steve Bruce and was approached by a Champions League club coached by Mauricio Pochettino.
Hell, here’s Grealish himself on the situation in September 2018::
“Of course there will be disappointments there. You just have to look at what Spurs has been up to this season. You beat Manchester United 3-0 at Old Trafford and will play against Barcelona in the Champions League next week. I felt like if I had gone I might have been on the English squad by the end of the year. I would never have gone there just to put the numbers together.
“At the beginning of the season my head was turned, it was everywhere. Even after the transfer window closed, I wasn’t right until the end of August.
“At that time it could have been done, but for whatever reason. They weren’t ready to pay what Villa wanted back then. ”
It sure sounds like the words of a man who turned down the chance to leave. Or clearly wanted it until Tottenham did what Tottenham did.

In this vague sense …
‘Poch had apparently barely registered in the mind of two of the biggest football clubs before being passed over. And now the unemployed Argentine has to ask himself exactly when his big opportunity will come.
“All of the elite manager’s jobs that should be waiting for him aren’t done yet. And we’re quickly approaching the point where Poch is in danger of becoming the forgotten man of football.
“The Argentinian Alan Curbishley, if you like” – Mark Irwin, The sun, 20. August.
Fifty-four days later, colleague Dave Kidd brings us the following …
‘Pochettino remains the king on the other side of the water for any major club considering changing the shelter. Manchester is still his most likely target.
“Pochettino has been a future United boss for years. Whenever Guardiola leaves – and that will always be the Catalan’s choice – Pochettino is clearly a top candidate. ”
So literally a Champions League finalist is not the Argentinean Alan Curbishley just because he took a year off management?
That international hiatus has felt particularly troublesome, but the end is near, not that the national media is willing to let that deter them from further spreading the idea that Gareth Southgate and Jose Mourinho are constantly at odds.
“Gareth Southgate on a new collision course with Jose Mourinho via Harry Kane” is the heading to a Daily mirror A story that tells us that the English coach is “ready to risk the wrath” of his Tottenham colleague “in a potential club against country” by playing against Denmark, “all right”.
That would be the same Kane who wasn’t even on the bench against Wales and who played less than half an hour at home against Belgium. Southgate dared to start it against Denmark if he is able to.
The Daily mail, The guard, the Daily telegraph and The times all parrots the ‘collision course’ line; Mediawatch would understand if he had already played 180 minutes and had another 90 minutes in the queue, but he is barely visible. Did everyone get the impression that England had their captain cheerleading?
Fortunately Evra after that
Over in the Manchester AbendnachrichtenThey offer groundbreaking and insightful advice for free. Are you reading, Ole Gunnar?
“Manchester United must do what Sir Alex Ferguson did in the January transfer window.”
You know exactly where this is going: January 2006, when Ferguson “proved that two major signings can take you to a league crown in 18 months, provided you get who you want”.
All United has to do is sign the next Nemanja Vidic and Patrice Evra. Or at least “act decisively and prepare” to involve “two key players in the two obvious areas that need to be addressed”.
It really is that simple. How has no one thought of signing two future club legends for a total of £ 12.5 million?
Most of the MailOnline headlines this day or another …
‘N’Golo Kante’ is about to leave Chelsea amid tensions with Frank Lampard after refusing to let him go to a friend’s wedding … and the midfielder dreams of joining Real Madrid. ”
First, it’s about 427 words long. Second, it is almost entirely quotation marks, although it is not a straight quotation mark. Third, it was promptly approved by Matt Law of the Daily telegraph as “total nonsense” on Tuesday morning.
Besides that, great job as always.
