West Bromwich Albion FC / Re: Craig Dawson

Always liked Dawson even when he spat his dummy out, couldn't have been easy playing in a Pulis then Pardew defence.
Not been great for us last season but always looked committed.
Let him go if we can get good bucks for him.
Good young players are out there especially on loan.
Might be worth seeing if we can get Holgate back for another season, and if the papers can be trusted we are already looking at possible replacements at centre half and fullback

He’s on holiday.

He's only been back at work two days and he's on friggin holiday?

£4.1m in football terms today is not a lot of potato.
What I would be interested to find out is did the transfer fee for Zhang come back to the club or did it go back in Lai's pocket?

I don't need a maths lesson thanks, I was pointing out that 20+ goal scorers aren't as difficult to find as some are suggesting.

Dear Slaven,
                  there are loads of 20+ a season goal scorers out there why not try..................(feel free to fill in the blank spaces

9 players scored 20+ goals in the championship last season, so 7 other clubs managed to have 20+ goalscorers, just maybe they aren't the rarity they're being made out to be.

and 17 clubs didn't

People are saying that Gayle being on more money would not go down well with other players.
If I was Hegazi or Gibbs I would be more pi$$ed that HRK was on £25k a week than Gayle being on £50k.

Plus unless Gayle goes round the dressing room showing off his payslip then who's to know how much he's on.

Need him in that office now as soon as possible to start shaping our squad

Surly even you can see if he plays well & scores goals it helps his price rise.
Of course I can.
All I want is our club to do well out of his sale.
I'm not really bothered how well he or Venezuela do to be honest.
If he had any real allegiance to us he could of stayed last year, albeit on reduced wages.
Reducing his wages by 50% isn't like reducing our wages by 50%. A reduction like that on our wages would make a difference to our way of life. It wouldn't to him.

Lovely bloke chyte manager

Forget his age, wages, goals ratio, blah blah blah.
If we could do it at at he right cost and obviously if Slav wanted him I would love to see him back next season same as Holgate.
Worth noting that the stand out players in OUR team last season were not our players apart from Hegazi

Good luck to Salomon Rondon and Venezuela, who begin their Copa America 2019 campaign against Peru this evening.

Stuff him and Venezuela.

Here's one for you:


No mention of gratitude there, and sounds like he was desperate to get out, and taking no responsibility in his part of the relegation. I don't believe this conjecture that he didn't have a relegation clause as imo jp would never have allowed it.

So he could have sounded grateful then imo.

He just  wanted to maintain a prem salary.

After that he didn't score then got injured and gave that interview (probably at the insistence of his agent) knowing he might have to come back if things didn't turn out good for him.

Look at the number of clubs he has played for, he moves for a higher wage every time, which imo is a mercenary.

I have moved for more money every time I've changed jobs all through my working life and suggest that anybody with a modicum of common sense would do the same.
Nothing to do with being a mercenary.

Probably better than most of us had hoped for.
He has the footballing pedigree hope it works out for him and us.

I like Bilic and hope I'm wrong but don't think it's a good appointment.

Talk that he had lost the dressing room at West Ham and was a poor tactician.

Sacked again at Ittihad who were probably well backed with a poor win ratio.

Limited knowledge of the championship.

That's it then.

Bilic Out!

Ring Bilic, I'm sure he'll jump at the job knowing that.

I think the fact our academy manager has now left us aswell, leaves another role that now needs to be filled.

We just seem to be on a bit of a downward spiral at the moment and its going to take a strong appointment to grab us by the scruff of the neck and wake us up.

James Shan step forward.
Keeps him at the club and no compensation to pay. Winner winner chicken dinner

The longer it drags on the more I can see it being Adkins.

Regardless of what he's done or how he's played for us in the past, it's all water under the bridge.
It's gone. It doesn't matter.
He doesn't want to be here so we should be out to get the maximum amount of wonga we can for him.
Thanks Sal.

This really.  It also annoys me the flack that Pulis gets like this is somehow all his fault.  He took over from Irvine and we were heading straight down under him, it was an utter disaster of an appointment. 

Pulis was exactly what we needed at the time, and we didn't do that badly under him despite playing shockingly poor football.  We knew his limitations and we got rid at the right time.  There was plenty of time left during the season for the next appointment to get us back on track, we weren't in the bottom 3, we had some decent players, however we appointed Pardew.

We then got rid of Pardew too late.  We then hired Big Dave, we then got rid of him with no plan to succeed.

Pulis wasn't the problem, it was a stream of constant mismanagement by the board that has been the problem.

I disagree regarding Pulis.
We should have got rid of him at the end of the previous season when we got to 40 points and put the tools away.
Regarding the other incumbents you mentioned they should never have been appointed at all.

Too much talking for my liking.
Either we want him or we don't:.......... i.e. Pay him or move on.
Either he want's the job or he doesn't:..........i.e. you know the terms and conditions, still interested or not?

If Bilic is appointed, it begs the question why he wasn’t appointed a lot sooner as he has been a free agent since February, it’s mind boggling, but it is Albion  ;D

Simple answer: They would have had to pay him
