    I think the whole pass/fail thing is probably not the most accurate way to describe it. I suspect clubs just decide whether it's worth the risk based on a medical, as opposed to there being a consistent criteria for passing across all clubs.

    There are more criteria than 'is his knee going to give way?' too.

    The classic being west ham trying to resign carlton cole, who had spent so much time sat on the bench he failed his medical on fitness grounds.

    FFS UEFA:

    Manchester City's plans for next season's Champions League campaign have received a huge boost after it was confirmed the club will only need to name five rather than eight home-grown players in their reduced 21-man squad.

    Considering the rules for home grown player allow Clichy to be classed as a home grown player it's an utter farce anyway the home grown player rules.

    That rule was always about a proportion of homegrown players, so it is sort of fair enough that the number is reduced tbh.

    I'll say this, of all the top prem teams he could go to, that was the one that needed him the least. Chelsea are absolutely laden in midfield.

    I don't get why we wouldn't be. Especially as LVG has seemingly passed on Kroos too.

    We really need to sort out our midfield and I can't see why we wouldn't be after these world class players.

    Unless we are signing Vidal......

    /keeps dreaming

    Depends what we do really. Both in the transfer market and during the season.
