So any of you guys worked out how to get Steve Smith out yet?

I’m looking forward to kicking back tonight and watching him do his stuff.

But if you do get him out we’ll fold like a bad poker hand.

We have no batsmen beside him.
Cheating convict should with anybody else caught doing likewise have been banned for life !!

i thought he didn't look that great on Saturday, maybe that could have been how the team were playing.

there is definitely a player in there for us in the future unlike Leko but i think he needs to be used sporadically this season to help his development.

the new loan players i can envisage taking his spot in the team.
Agree with this .Keep him fresh almost naive so as every time he plays he is ready to bomb on. No reason why this can't be done now as we have plenty of cover in those positions.

Very difficult on yesterdays evidence to see where they get enough goals from to avoid struggling. Also can't see a system with 3up front plus Greasy and McGinn will work in Prem they will get run all over as per second goal yesterday however hope Smith continues with this system to try and prove me wrong as it will all end in cabbages (hopefully !!) 8) 8)

Interestingly Wilson's loan is only until January, not a season long loan

Dark horses for play offs IMO are Sheff.  Wednesday, dependent on what happens with managerial situation. Unusually I fi d it difficult to pick out who the strugglers will be,  most of those who I thought could have problems had good results last weekend

Of all 6esterdays signings this is the one I am most interested in. Already good enough to have made several Prem league appearances for an ambitious club he has the potential to storm this league imo

Not only his obvious goals record but has the nous and experience to help others along.

A friend who is a QPR season ticket holder told me that Furlong is a real fans favourite who he believed will do well at West Brom.
It would seem from their forums not all QPR fans agree with your friend .

Bit confused with this if the reports we are after holgate again are correct. Unless holgate will come in as a first choice centre half with ajeyi playing holding mid
Forget where but have seen it in an article expressing our interest that SB wants Holgate as a CB

Whereabouts is the bar ? Am in Q Bank and generally go out to watch the telly games. Like many Pulis /Pardew killed a lot of pleasure but appointment of Bilic has re kindled some enthusiasm and will probably quite like to do the odd away game if he is given the tools to do the job

To me it depends on what % of our transfer budget this is using up . 70 % or more and it doesn't seem or feel like a good deal. 50% or less and its probably a risk worth taking

Come on then - what’s all this better value that’s out there??
A championship club just sold an England international who scored 20+ last season for 10 million , reckon that's better value myself !!

The bean counter (Jenkins) may well have the final say but surely the DOF has a lot of input into footballing matters it is what he is employed for allegedly !!

Am now coming round to the thought that Bilic will quit sooner rather than later ,maybe not before the start of the season but would not be in the least surprised if he wasn't here by October 1st  :( :( >:( >:(

I think you are being rude. you need to look at the bigger picture in terms of how many staff are leaving the club currently and why.

and as to your comment being very patient i would disagree as you were constantly complaining how long it was taking to appoint a manager and we made a very good decision in the end in my opinion.

we didnt sign Barnes on loan last season until the end of july and Gayle didnt join until after the first week of August.

we need patience.
The window shuts much earlier this year, something like 23 days left so Barnes was here at least 30 days before end of window , and Gayle would have had about 3 weeks before window shut a point we have just about reached

Don't see Burnley being much better off than last season .

Something more to consider regarding the academy is Brexit. Sometime in the next 2years the employment laws affecting EU passport holders will change and they will not have automatic right to work here making young British talent even more valuable and expensive.
