    Just wondering what has happened to Sharp again??

    I noticed he featured in Belgium/Holland - I'd like to see him being given a chance in the squad this season.

    It is strange that he's not even on the bench

    I'd like to think that's a good sign - if we really are still aiming high I'm sorry but the likes of Hoover and Billy aren't the future. Good pros, have played their part in the story, but no. Would love us to go big on a bid for benteke - his injury and slightly disappointing season may give us a once-only chance to land him by putting the big clubs off. 20-25M should do it - less than an unfit Luke Shaw.

    Good shouts on all counts but just thought he (BS) would get a bit of game time in the friendlies
