Gayles goal again Stoke comes to mind from last season.

I honestly don’t know what all the hyped is about him. I’m gutted we missed out on 10m+
Would much rather a fit Gibbs at left back, although that’s wishful thinking

At least Leeds are losing

This doesnt sit well with me as it can be taken advantage of far to easy. For example if spurs wanted Ferguson but didn’t want to pay the tribunal fee of say 5 million, what’s stopping them from getting an overseas club to buy him for 300k or whatever the price is set at then agree to pay 1.5 million? I’m not saying Villa have done this but you can see how agents and clubs could work it

If someone offers decent money then I’d let him go and put the money toward getting Gayle in. We already have a great winger in Edwards and as people have said we really don't see a lot of Philips throughout the season due to his injury record. And if we get Matheus Pereira then we will be a real threat on the counter

I would have thought if Stoke had wanted him they would have gone for him by now as they haven’t messed about and done deals early

Was ok as a right back in a team Pulis set out but now he has moved to his preferred centre back position I haven’t been all that impressed. His passing was poor at times last season. I think Hegazi is our best defender and walk be gutted if someone comes in for him

Really torn on this. Would love us to do a straight swap with Rondon rather than see him join the likes of Stoke or Fulham. But also think 16.5 million should the club reinvest it that’s is, could buy 2 very good young strikers from over seas on half his wage.

I think a new manager could convince him to sign. All the uncertainty at the club must be unsettling for a player and I’m hoping if Bilic becomes manager he could convince him to stay

West Bromwich Albion FC / Re: Dwight Gayle (on loan swap from Newcastle)
« on: September 30, 2018, 09:10:58 AM »
I think it will cost us big to sign Gayle next season. It cost Fulham 22 million for Mitrovic who had a decent half season on loan to them, and he was a player we were looking to sign for just 11 million before then. Plus if Newcastle go down which I can see happening then they would be crazy to sell him. Unfortunately we’ve going to get Rondon back who will have had a poor season with a year left of has contract

If we were to lose Barnes in January then we should break the bank to get Dack from Blackburn. He’s having a great season.

I’m sure these youngsters will get some time against the lesser teams during the season, especially as the build up of games takes its toll. Stoke was a potential 6 pointer come the end of the season and a good start to the season is crucial in this league to build momentum. Can’t blame Darren Moore for putting his strongest team out whilst their all fairly fresh

This walk out music has to go! It’s terrible and gets progressively worse until it’s just a jumbled up noise that comes to an end only when the ref blows his whistle. What was wrong with the liquidator? They should be getting the crowd going not drowning them out!

West Bromwich Albion FC / Re: Centre midfield
« on: August 08, 2018, 07:36:46 AM »
It’s time to stop playing like a bottom half premiership side looking to nick something. We need to stamp our own identity on the way we play in this league. Need more creativity from midfield, we’ve not going to score passing sideways. We need someone who can drive the ball forward, Brunt and Livermore can’t do that. I’m worried Big Dave doesn’t know of any other way to go about it. I just hope this new coach has an idea

Made me quite glad we got rid of Foster for a decent price. He looked about ready for the scrap heap with those knees!

General Football & Sports / Re: Salomon Rondon
« on: July 16, 2018, 08:57:06 PM »
Newcastle are expected to tie up a deal for their top summer target Solomon Rondon in the next week – and TEAMtalk sources can reveal an impressive cut-price raid could be agreed.

The Venezuelan striker has been identified by Rafa Benitez as the man he wants to lead his strikeforce next season, with Aleksander Mitrovic expected to make a permanent move to Fulham.
Rondon, 28, has a release clause of £16.5million in his contract but TEAMtalk can reveal Newcastle want the deal as an initial loan – and have offered £4million now and then a further £15million next summer to make the deal permanent.

West Brom would rather sell now, and although Rondon’s wages have almost halved from £75,000-a-week to £40,000, they are desperate to shed his salary and look likely to agree to Newcastle’s request.

If we can get quoted 25 million for Deeney then I’d say Rodriguez is worth that when you consider he is younger and has a better goal ratio

« on: May 18, 2018, 08:44:58 AM »
Think you need a good cop bad cop. We should have got McInnes in as manager who can get them fired up and Big Dave as his assistant. I’m worried this is too soon for him to take charge with such an important season ahead.

So what happens now? How many would Southampton have to let in against City (should they draw with Swansea)

If we had just simply drawn our games with Stoke, Southampton and Swansea 😞

Wouldn't mind us going for Bradley Dack of Blackburn. On about 19 goals and 8 asists this season from midfield, Division1 player of the season.

Would be delighted if we got 2.6 million for him! living off that Cruyff turn in the euros. Was a decent free for us to be fair to him and scored a couple of important goals but he wont be a first teamer next season, would rather promote one of the academy kids to the bench.

I knew we would likely get relegated by sacking Pulis but I was happy to take that risk to bring football back. I felt he build a team that only he could use and anyone else who stepped in were bound to fail. Maybe Megson could have saved us with his similar philosophy but it needed a overhaul either way. Every team needs their midfield to chip in with goals but his set up of 4 centre backs across the back, 3 defensive midfielders in the middle, the wide players basically playing at wing back and one lump upfront ment we could only wish for a clean sheet and if we're lucky we might pinch a goal from a corner. It was horrific to watch and I question how the board even let him build like this with no plan B. When Ashford was in charge they kept a philosophy that when a manager moved on they could bring in another who could carry the team without changing too many ideas, with Pulis they've thrown that out the window. I blame Peace for this as when he decided to cash in instead of thinking about the long term future of the club he was looking to sell an established premiership club with no plan other than stay in the league for the money men. I worry for the future but I started supporting Albion when Bobby Gould took charge so I've seen us at our worst and still loved it!
