"Darren Moore wants Wayne Jacobs on West Brom staff"

Darren states he isn't being considering him for Assistant Head Coach. He was a defender as a player, which might put some fans off

Seeing as the board accepted relegation in March... then surely they have spent 2 months identifying championship targets for the squad, covering all player departure scenarios.  Yes?  (I doubt it.)

Biggest waste of money since David Mills for all you old timers
He's not that bad, and has potential at least. Remember Mills became the record English transfer when he joined us.
I and many others thought he was the final piece. How bitterly disappointed we were.

I think it's time for us to say thanks for everything Gareth, but it's time to move on. When he did play last season, there were signs that age was catching up with him in some respects and we should be looking towards having a more mobile defenders who can use more than one system than just sitting deep.
Farewell Gareth, and thanks for being a quality fixture in our team. A model professional who will be sorely missed but time to move on.

Johnstone On loan good keeper will either be back up at Old Trafford or he will find a spot at a Prem club
El Mohamady Past it
Chester Pick of the bunch would take him back in a heart beat but he is now 29.
Hutton  Just no
Terry Worse than Hutton
Jedinak Past it
Snodgrass On loan from West Ham no past it
Hourihane Quite like in the Championship but would have to be replaced on promotion
Grealish Overrated but too good for them and will move to a Premier League club
Adomah Okay but 30 is too long in the tooth for a winger no
Grabban On loan from Bournemouth always done alright in the Championship could do worse if we are short. 
Whelan Never liked him and he is not improving with age.
Hogan  I once quite liked him but his career has died at Witton pity
Bree  I think he has a decent future could do worse
Onomah Big reputation from Spurs not entirely lived up to it but I would take a chance on him if Spurs wanted to loan him out next year
Bjarnason Okay but 30
Kodjia He's had a mixed season with two long spells on the sidelines with injury at 28 we have seen the best of him
Bunn No


In addition they have another 12 senior players under contract including Samba (only to the end of the month) McCormack on £50k a week for another 2 years. Micah Richards I no longer believe there is a decent player in there somewhere and Henri Lansbury who I always quite liked when playing for Forrest but whose career has died at the Vile.

Yeah it is a bit of a mess not sure I envy them

Even the Club's social media account put something out telling their own fans to stop sending him abusive messages via twitter. I don't know how our fans would react in similar circumstances I hope better but fear that might not be the case.

He just needs to play week in week out for a while and I think there's a raw but powerful player in there who could scare the life out of defences in the championship if allowed a more free role to express himself than Pulis or Pardew allowed him.

Two things Darren was appointed 21st May and did virtually a full day of media work, so probably didn't start his conversations with the playing staff until 22nd so even if he hasn't yet spoken to McAuley he is barely out of his original time frame. Note Darren painted himself into this corner by being very specific

Secondly the final decision on McAuley might be dependent on how the talks go with the other Centre Backs. Evans is a lost cause, Dawson is widely reported to have a release clause and there has been speculation linking Hegazi with a move to Spurs among others (that doesn't happen by accident). Incidentally Hegazi is in a pre World Cup training camp with Egypt so might not be that easy to get hold of.   

So faced with the prospect of losing virtually every other Centre Back Moore might turn to McAuley to give him one last season. He can hardly let him go and a week latter pick up the phone and give him a reprieve. 

Personally I would still let him go even if it gave us a mountain to climb with regard to recruitment. If he is going to play regularly it pretty much commits us to play a deep sitting block like Terry did with the Villa no other way round it.
