That might end up being the case with Gylfi. We don't know

The fans want that, the owners would like that but, ultimately, there's a business side to football as

Gylfi has been an excellent player here. He has three years on his contract and if any business is going to be done, it will be done on the terms we

There are few unresolved constitutional questions of greater legal and practical significance than whether the Second Amendment entitles ordinary, law abiding citizens to bear handguns outside the home for self

A lot of players have to make that decision in their careers. I am not necessarily talking about Gylfi, but do they want to be a smaller fish in a big pond or a big fish in a small pond?feedback

May 19 2017

I think Gylfi has a unique situation. He was here on loan and then he went to Tottenham, which was set to be the next step in his career. It didn't work out, he came back here and has done really well. He cannot have another situation like he had at Tottenham, where he potentially goes somewhere and is in and out of the side, and does not gather any momentum. He is going to have that in his mind, if he is going to make the next step it has to be a positive one. Otherwise he is better staying here, being a key player and building something around moving this club

The fact is I know John, he is a top player and a free agent. So it would only be sensible to have a discussion with him to see if he would be interested. I don't know if he has already decided on somewhere else. A lot of the time these things are already done. But if that is not the case and he would be open to a conversation, then I would be open to that as

May 16 2017

There are capable and able footballers here. Over recent games, to ship three goals, four goals, five goals, I'm confident in my ability as a coach that that won't happen under my reign. I can't say 100% it won't – there is a lot of randomness in football. But I'm pretty confident it won't happen because with the players that I've currently got, I think I can get them more organised than they've been, give them a bit of solidity in the defensive work and that's the foundation to build what they've already shown they can be good at, which is the offensive

May 13 2017

I have experienced it with John Terry and Frank Lampard at Chelsea, but what I saw last Saturday was special. He went for one with his head, the crowd were going crazy. He put a really strong tackle in as well. Then when he came off, well, that (ovation) was amazing. What an affinity Leon has with the supporters. Unbelievable. That could be seen as an advantage for us, people that understand the history. Wayne spoke in the dressing room just before we went out against Stoke. He had his civilian gear on because he's

May 13 2017

He came in just as we were about to go out and he said 'I hope you all know how important this is. I hope you know. They were the last couple of words, then out they went and did a good job. It's great to have players that have spent years and years here. If we do a good job on Saturday it's going to be easier to watch the Hull game. If we don't I might lie in a dark room somewhere. But our mentality is to go and win the game. That's what we're really trying to

Obviously you want to try to avoid it but at the same time I'd take it (rather than going down).feedback

May 06 2017

It's a fantastic win of us at this point of the season when the stakes are so high. I think what it says to everyone is: 'We have an opportunity, don't waste it.' That was the case and it ended up being a positive weekend, but we know how quickly it can swing the other way. We have to make sure now that we are absolutely focused to get a good result next weekend at

May 06 2017

I think the difference was probably that we had experienced that, and you know that it can happen. It was in the back of my mind around 82-83 minutes and I'm sure that was the case with the players. But mentally they stood up to

He was furious. He was furious. He said: 'I've gone down to get my hands on the ball, and I can see that now I can't get it so I've come away from it and [Rashford has] gone down before the

Those players are absolutely vital. We are little and large on the training ground. He is still a very good player, he takes the ball, controls possession. That helps our style and he is instrumental in

Apr 27 2017

We have four games to go, two away and two at home. The players are confident and I am confident that we can go and pick up valuable points in all of them. We hadn't been performing well before Stoke. The bad run we had lasted a lot longer than we would have liked. But we put that right against Stoke with our performance and our application and, as I say, I hope now we have turned the

I watched [the film] myself with my staff, we had it on the auditorium, you can't not be inspired by it. It was fantastic and we felt really good coming out of there. Those things, the story and history, I felt inspired watching it. Leon has been club captain and a great influence with the dinners he has taken the players for and he has helped in every way. He is a positive influence and has the best interests of the club and city at

Apr 20 2017

There are five games left with three at home. Our form has been better at home than away and the fact Hull are home to Watford, a game I believe they will win, we have to win. I hope the players respond, they have not responded well over the last six games when pressure has been there but we have to perform to alleviate it. Otherwise the last few games will be for nothing. During the game and after there are a lot of emotions. Some are anger, then there is frustration and then you look back more

Apr 20 2017

The players 100 per cent [have the stomach for a fight], they battle and go hammer and tongs in training. They know what is needed, intensity in training is there. If I had seen something different in terms of mood I would be worried. I am

I am still optimistic and I get that from the players still. They were disappointed after Watford, but we spoke about how we can do better and the last couple of days have been very

He is a great talent and one of a dying breed of leaders. He has represented that club so well. Players are too quick to move on from club to club now but congratulations to him. If we stay up why wouldn't we be interested? I know him well and would be more than happy to speak to him. That is not something I have thought about at this point, we have to focus on players and games we have got and when the season finishes we can talk about potential

The pathway is there. There's an opportunity for the players and I liaise closely with Cameron and Gary about their development. I take a keen interest in the youngsters and seeing them win the league in the style they have is a good

Apr 05 2017

It feels easy here because they're naturally interested in it and Huw is immersed, always around the training ground. There's a can-do approach where the noises are backed up by action. That's not the case at every club. I think the first five years of EPPP have brought a lot of good things but we've still got a huge amount of work to do to reach the next level. It's not perfect and we didn't get everything right but the lessons are being

Apr 02 2017

I've done a list on where the teams are and who has got who in the run-in. But I don't predict the results because it never works out anything like that in reality. In the past, with Carlo, we've had our fixtures out and we'll say, We're going to get three there, three there, a point there, there's three. But afterwards it doesn't look anything like what we've predicted. That is fantasy football. It's not real, so I don't do it. I don't say there is a definite three points, or one point, or none. It's a waste of

They had come off the back end of some bad results and it's the last throw of the dice for them. They were thinking, Can they get that bounce back by bringing in someone new? And they thought that was a risk worth taking. When we played Leicester (Swansea won 2-0) it was Claudio Ranieri's last Premier League game. Maybe, if we had caught them in Craig Shakespeare's first game, you might have said it was a different situation. You could look at it and think, Oh we got fortunate with the timing of the Leicester situation - it worked for us

I think it's good for a young player to have ambition to play at the highest level. I have no problem with that. What I see in Gylfi is someone who is very motivated to play well here and to keep us in the league. Every day in training he does the best he can and it is no coincidence that he is a very good player. The top players have talent, but they also have an unbelievable work ethic. Gylfi has that. We have not had one conversation about him playing anywhere else and that's not a worry for me. Our focus is on

Going into this game we know it is very important for both teams. We've got a slight advantage on Hull, but not much. When I came here in January there were four teams in it at the bottom, now it is seven but it could become four teams again, and it could quite easily become

Fernando's rehabilitating individually - he has not joined the team training yet. But assuming all goes well, we anticipate that happening in the next 10 days.

The most important thing is that we get the arm right. You don't want him to re-fracture it and then end up with Fernando needing surgery, because a six-week injury can then become a six-month

My players clearly thought it wasn't a penalty and, seeing the replay, the player has deceived the referee. It's clear. There's no other way to look at
