West Bromwich Albion FC / Re: Ahmed Hegazi

Wonder how Hegazi will react when he returns seeing how thin the squad is looking.
Might be wrong but I would expect him to be one of the higher earners and there is interest in him at the moment (vile)
Could be an interesting chat between him and Bilic.

Wonder how much Bilic is on board with the current situation of losing our best players ?

I'd expect him to be fully on board with it otherwise we could well be looking for another manager sooner rather than we expected

Good luck to him, seems a top bloke.

On another note, who on earth was signing these players with such bad release clauses? Rodriguez could have easily gone for £15 million, Evans went for something pathetic like £3 million. Then we signed Jake Livermore for £8 million at the same time.

I hope to god whoever was making those deals has left our club a long time ago, awful stuff.

The players or their agents probably insist on these release clauses.
JRod(agent) could have said last year I'll give it another year to see if we can get promoted if you put a £5m + £5m release clause to cover me if we dont get promoted

Hope Slav's got a rabbit or six to pull out of the hat. An already thin squad is getting thinner by the day

Sorry to see him leave, commitment never in question from a limited footballer.
He could have kicked up a fuss last season and left but stayed and did his best
Hope he does well at Burnley, but not a Premiership footballer for me

Just clicked back to page 1 of this thread, unbelievable how far he has fallen, and most of it his own doing
What could have been.

I know the figures. Believe me, if it was my son, speaking even as an Albion fan, I would tell them to stick it.

For an England International, with top6 English clubs sniffing, plus top European clubs, the offer is just jaw dropping.

Compared to you and I, we would be happy over the 3 years, but for a footballer I am in disbelief.

Maybe it's me though - out of interest, what would people say is reasonable over 3 years?

Your trying to equate two different bed fellows here.
Reasonable and football are not two words that should be use in the same sentence.
Is it reasonable for a heart surgeon to be paid less than a bang average Championship footballer?
For a nurse or a doctor to be paid less than a less than average Championship footballer?
Football now is completely unreasonable and the fault for all that is down to Sky TV.
The sport (should be called a business) is out of the working mans hands, it's now the property of faceless corporate agencies that see us all as nobodies worth bothering about.

Well if we were going to pay peanuts then I've no issue with the kid but if we offered a reasonable deal then he can jog on with his greedy parents.

Nothing to do with greed mate just maximising the return on his talent.

As others have said its the system not the kids fault.
Any of us at that age in all honesty would do exactly the same.
If it's true that he's been offered a five year deal elsewhere and we were only offering three then I think our negotiators should be looking at why we let the kid go.
Only time will tell if they were right or not.

Another positive in my opinion.
Crack on Harper

Come on Phil show us what you can do

Feel generally positive about this one. Quick look at a Benfica forum though (poorly translated through google) and it is mixed reviews, some feel he was great when they started and just needs a good run of games to get back there. Others feel that when he had his injury he couldn't be bothered much and a number of them talk about women and wine. Ill remain optimistic though but reserve judgement until he has a couple of games under his belt

he'll be hard pressed to find either of those to his taste in West Brom

Although it pains me to say it, if someone offered me 70k per week more (3.64mil per year) then I would struggle to refuse that.

So would anybody else with any gumption

of course you may be right , but they do state that Benfica aren't easy to deal with, if it was us being difficult I'm sure they would have reported it as such.

Neither are we, almost a perfect storm really

The article clearly says that "negotiating with Benfica is not as easy at it  may seem". Sounds like it 's them rather than us.

Yep, but we do have ........'history'

I know it's only You Tube but he looks more of a Teixeira type player.
Technically quite good but lacking the physical presence.

Didn't somebody say earlier on in the thread that he was signing today?

West Bromwich Albion FC / Re: Craig Dawson

Tara Craig

He's the 1st manager in a long time that has made me feel posative for our future,right man right time just needs the backing with £££ for transfars. He has a MASSIVE job on his hands i just hope everyone keeps their feet off his throught.
 Pulis was the man right time but after keeping us up he should have gone,Job Done

Me too, can't remember the last time I was so looking forward to the start of the season.
He's been given 2 years to see what he can do, lets give him the chance

Sometimes you have to take a step backward before you can move forward, I think this is one of those cases.
I'd expect Dawson to be replaced by a younger cheaper, though less experienced option, and with a possible sell on value

We've all been shouting for change.............................now we're getting it.
Just hope it all works out

Nice bloke, heart in the right place. He's been at the club a long time so it must hurt.
Good luck Jim, hope you land on your feet
