West Bromwich Albion FC / Re: Gareth McAuley

I’m a bit confused by this. In Darren Moore’s press unveiling he said he was going to individually sit down with every player in the next week. It’s been 2 weeks and McAuley is saying he hasn’t heard anything since the end of the season?
Darren said that on the 21st May, last Monday. due to us not knowing when or who conducted the interview or if it was embargoed for an amount of time,which isn't uncommon, its possible that Gareth was asked just after Dave's appointment (2 weeks ago) and they have since spoken.

Thanks for the important clarification on the £32m.

Re Terraneo, the media said this week that he's heading up recruitment until his scheduled departure in September. We really are in an uneasy position at an important time for the club. Basically he leaves in September or soon after and any signings made until then are officially down to him, with others apparently having little accountability for decisions  (and any decisions on departures can also be parked at his door). We've no recent evidence that he's any good at the job or how in touch he is with European let alone British football.

I guess Jenkins and the owners will have to rubber stamp any comings and goings but it's hard to feel relaxed about this current setup.

If the recruitment process is working then across the summer Terraneo's role is almost exclusively closing the deals for targets which we have identified and scouted well before he got here in the 2nd week of April. The bigger concern is that Hammond's legacy is a an empty cupboard and we are frantically chasing our tails and end up recruiting players on reputation rather than evidence. We should not be pulling names out of the ether or be taking calls from agents hawking their clients.

With regard to who stays and goes it is fairly obvious Darren Moore will have a major input but with regard to those with those who have release clauses we pretty much have handed control over to their agents.

In normal circumstances I’d agree it would be time to ask McAuley to move on, but in a summer where we could conceivably lose Evans, Dawson and Hegazi, we can’t move McAuley on as well.

could still do a job elsewhere but we need  a similar younger version,
true professional and great servant but we need to move on.

I think Villa are f***ed aren’t they? Broke FFP to try and get up and that has failed, now they have effectively lost their parachute payments.
